unless a song is about wanting to have sex with an underage girl it isn't *real* classic rock

someone dmed me earlier (I’m on toot! App) and for some reason their avatar popped up as a little floating bubble on my screen. it’s still there. I can move it around but I can’t get rid of it. guess it just lives there now

slightly too real shitpost

a week or so ago I went to the park with hazel and curled up in the grass for the first time since last year. it was a very wonderful experience just on that account

but also it was the *only* time since last year that I’ve not been in any pain

health observations 

literally:

sunday, temperature drops - bad spine flare up, excruciating pain, need help getting in and out of bed for next 3 days

wednesday, temperature rises - rapid recovery almost to usual mobility, massive decrease in pain

if it was a one off this could be a coincidence, but I’ve been observing this pattern for a while and it absolutely isn’t

it’s sort of absurd how much my condition correlates with the weather/pressure changes

I really recommend that people who aren't trans read this. Trans people will mostly already know it because we've lived it. I came out in 2012, just in time to suffer through the worst of this shit.

When I came out, I decided to use twitter just to talk to other trans people about stuff. My twitter account grew from nothing in 2012 to almost ten thousand followers by the time I shut it down in 2018.
I had to shut it down, because though I had been targeted right from the start, an account that size means you're on the radar of every bigot with a twitter account, and people from dedicated harassment sites compile dossiers on you and funnel more abuse towards you, abuse that doesn't just stay online. So, as much as I felt like I was letting them win by doing so, I had to retreat from my public presence.
The bigots with newspaper columns might bellow from their public platforms about how they're being silenced, but what I experienced is what silencing actually looks like.
