I like listening not so much speaking, other people's stories are more entertaining than mine.
I have peculiar interests that generally nobody likes: Opera, patriarchy deconstruction, trans rights, LGBTQ+ issues, society and politics secularization, cultural differences, nudism, body positivity, mental health, art and architecture, diversity, sustainability, appliances. ..
I speak a poor Italian and a poor English.
I live in Ireland and this changed me in way I didn't anticipate

In election time, the average person evaluates and chooses who promises more or less taxes, or who cares about a certain territorial area or their work.
All LGBTQ+ people and all other minorities do is evaluate who will insult us less, who will dehumanize us less, who will applaud less at violence against us.
If average people realized more that minorities are their children, siblings, colleagues, friends ... There would be another result.

Whenever you meet a femme man show respect.
Whatever you think about him isn't important: he survived a life of bullying in a toxic society.
Do not ever use the fact he is femme to add damage to his life.
