whiteness 

analysis here is so poorly done that non-latine white folks got suckered into believing that white latines are an oppressed class of ppl

and ur seeing these white latines be the megaphone for darker blk or indi latine folks, who are actually silenced by them.

theyre also going around being incredibly racist but theyre 'latine' so its ok.

this place has no potential for liberation.

A classic!

"Maverick spends the remainder of Top Gun doing two things: practicing Cool Airplane Moves and experimenting with heterosexual behavior. The Cool Airplane Moves speak for themselves: this is the blatant-Navy-recruitment part of the film, and it’s all about sweaty guys Using Lingo and going fyooom. Meanwhile, the sections of the film that take place on the ground follow Maverick’s struggle with the urge to blatantly disrespect a woman into having sex with him."

my friend in another space wrote abt the tactics that ppl use in SM spaces to get rid of Blk women in particular off the platforms they actively create (and that others then benefit)

and if they remove ppl en masse, then its easy for them to say 'oh its not a problem about racism, antiblackness or misogyny, its a clear problem with those ppl over there'

then rinse wash repeat

which makes sense to me when i consider W.L is still abt but PV isn't.

I wanna find more trans fat disabled community. Anyone out there?

I don't have a word for it, but the specific intersection of ableism, transphobia, and fatphobia is a very different lived experience than only experiencing one and having privilege in the other two. Even experiencing 2/3 is different. And I know I have more privilege as a white person than a POC who experiences these 3 in addition to racism.

just putting this out to the void & hoping someone hears it cuz damn its hard to exist.

bank, grumpy 

Trying to set up a savings account like a grown-up, and I'm told I can't have the one I'm trying to apply for because it's not available to U.S. citizens. 🙄

sleep 

me, up since 4am: what is this early-January no-sleep bullshit I am back on! It's mid-January now!

It wasn't just early January, for weeks or maybe months before that my sleep was catastrophic, 3-4 hours a night at least a few times a week.

The last week or so has been okay though, and apparently a week of decent sleep is all it takes for me to greet one more bad night with "what is this ancient nonsense that has come back to haunt me?!"

I realized a few mins ago that I knew what "MVP" *meant* but had no idea what the acronym stood for, so my brain was trying to figure it out in the background and the best I could come up with was "Most Very Person".

quietly watching "a non-binary person" evolve into "a they/them" in usage online and.. well its defining a positive rather than a negative which i can get behind but .. are there they/thems who have xe/xer pronouns?

Sir I'm sorry but at we need to get at least 2 more inches of snow before you can even think about doing such freeform interpretations of where the lanes are on lyndale

Ugh I went to bed early because I had a sinus headache that was getting worse but then I couldn't sleep because of my sinus headache and now I've woken up a few hours later with a worse headache and some self-pity on top of it.

I love this little moon-shaped (no the moon is not just /round/ shaped, you know what I mean, it has /craters/ okay) light.

So useful for times like now when I turn the light off and then get into bed and then realize I still have to do something I want light for (today: find my phone so I can charge it). And it's so cute. Especially on the dark-blue duvet cover.

Hooray I did that thing! And that was the second bank I talked to this afternoon so that's at least two more Hard Things from my list, possibly three or four depending on how you count them.

Still, when I first said "Can I have a piece of paper to maybe start to write down lists of all the things I need to do?", QueenMollyBones gave me this sparkly velvety little notebook that seems way too grandiose for my Unfuck My Life lists and details, but on the other hand it is very nice to touch its soft cover and little rhinestones while I'm losing my mind on hold.

On hold to the bank. "We're experiencing high call volumes. Did you know you can use online banking?"

Yeah I DID but I'm calling you because I can't remember any of the details I need to get into online banking! 😤

Endure moments
of self-loathing. Find the evidence of those before you.
Destroy it. Try to be very quiet, and listen for the sound
of gears and moving water. Listen for the sound of your heart. Be thankful that you are here, swallowed with all hope,
where you can rest and wait. Be nostalgic. Think of all
the things you did and could have done. Remember
treading water in the center of the still night sea, your toes
pointing again and again down, down into the black depths.
