Covid-19, bad therapists
Today a therapist tried to convince me that it’s fine to have friends over for a hug because as long as we wear a sweatshirt while we hug, which is then removed, we will be safe from transmitting infection.
...BS like this is why I’ve spent so little of my life in therapy despite having a seriously legit trauma history 🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️
PDX mutual aid resources, birdsite, Coronavirus
I’ve been on the birdsite more today since it’s proving to be a shockingly effective way of connecting with Real Humans during the time of “social distancing”.
Please feel free to reboost, here’s a thread of resources for folks who need support with school closures and other economic hardships in PDX https://twitter.com/popmobpdx/status/1238590511755087872?s=21
subtoot but about most everyone
Like... I recognize everyone is very scared, and that is reasonable.
But that type of fear... is what lots of the human population has lived with, /forever/.
And they have done everything they can for as long as they can to beg you to stop building up such a scary fragile thing.
I've done everything I can. I think it's understandable I'm a bit pissy that /now/ everyone is coming together, like people haven't been dying in the thousands for decades.
reference to quarantine, birdsite
I should regard this as an exercise in being more comfortable with my own thoughts and my own company. I want to take this opportunity to mediate more.
(I also get an excuse to video game more so that’s dope)
Black out day, selfies, eye contact
Five years ago today the first #BlackOutDay happened over on Tumblr. It was wonderful getting inundated in images of black folks and taking a break from images of whiteness. Being as surrounded by whiteness as I generally am out was definitely something I needed to see at the time.
Here's an assortment of images of me from the past year for this and happy #FineFemmeFriday to everybody.
In just 3 hours, Nate Woods is going to be executed for a crime he did not commit. Please contact Kay Ivey, the Governor of Alabama, and her colleagues, and them to grant a reprieve for Nate Woods.
uspol, disappointment, sexism duh.
"As our first graph shows, Warren’s support was concentrated among those who reject sexist sentiments. To be clear, this does not show that voters who did not support Warren are necessarily sexist … Instead, what this shows is that Warren received little-to-no support from the roughly one third of the Democratic primary electorate that does not reject these sentiments."
"Now that it looks like Biden is going to get the nomination, what can I learn about him to make myself comfortable voting for him?" is like the most post-truth gibberish ever.
"Reality is defined by what I know, so please provide me with knowledge meeting certain criteria to aid me in bending reality."
A cis bi gal, just doin her thing.
Butts: Everyone has one!
