uspol + respectability politics 

Because we should all just get along. We should be able to just accept racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic asshats with love in our hearts. That's the message, right?

Nope. No no no. Make these fuckers feel very very uncomfortable.

uspol + respectability politics 

One other thing that's been galling me has been people talking about how this will tear apart the fabric of the court, because it relies on the Justices being polite to each other in order to function.

I'm sorry, you are going to be polite and eat lunch with the conservative justices while they tear apart fundamental liberties?

We are kinda fucked.

Most of the protections of the last 20-30 years around personal liberty rely on Roe v. Wade as precedent.

I'm not saying that striking down Roe isn't inherently terrible, because it is.

But there's an aftermath coming from this.

Elwood Blues from the Blues Brothers and Ducky from Pretty in Pink were nonbinary transfemmes and no, I will not be taking questions at this time.

I would really like to be able to say "The State of _________" and have something positive happening there for trans and queer folks.

It does happen occasionally, but it seems few and far between lately.

It's rough when I start a sentence with "The State of ________" and my spouse immediately knows which State and which horrible thing they are doing to trans folks.

I'm back here. I think. Got to get rid of some dust and cobwebs, though.

Home again home again, after being around waaay too many people. Large crowds and I don't get along in the same way we did when I was younger.

Heading out to the local mini maker faire this morning. I won't be on here (the fediverse) today as I don't have a client on my phone.

I'm reading _Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl_ from Andrea Lawlor, and finding the idea of shapeshifting gender... both hot and appealing.

I can maybe succeed at getting myself around and going to sleep. That's not a hard thing to do.

And I'm feeling like a shitty person to boot. I can't make friends and keep them for shit. I don't know how to "friend". I barely know how to "person" and I feel like I'm faking that most of the time.

Feeling generally broken. Mother in law staying with us. Keeps misgendering our kid, my spouse, me... it grates.

Wanna see how much someone 6'1" can curl into a ball and make themselves small? You'd just have to look at me right now.

A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
