I always think ‘when will my life begin’ but the fact is that I’m living my life every day, and that I might not be here tomorrow, and that thought scares me.
A lot of us have heard this words addressed to us during the course of our life. It usually came from bigoted people. If one of those persons are reading this:
Why do you see the speck in your neighbor’s eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? Or how can you say to your…
I need some anarchist blogs to follow.
If your conviction about who can or can’t marry who is stronger than your conviction that children should be fed, sheltered, and educated, you’re doing it wrong.
My school is going to have a class next year dedicated to teaching paranoid rapture theology and how to survive out in the wild ‘when the beast comes’ and they’re masking it as a history class. This is what goes on in my conservative Christian school.

I wish that there was a socially acceptable way to say, “I’m having a bad mental health day and need you to pay attention to me,” without alienating everyone.
or: “I’m having a bad mental health day and need to be on my own for a while so please don’t be mad if I cancel our plans on short notice.”

Meaning the Obama administration will actually look at the petition and consider it. Wow, wow, wow.
I’ve seen a lot of backlash against this petition lately saying that it won’t do anything to help the status of nonbinary folks in the United States. I have my opinions, but as a cis person who won’t ever change to a nonbinary gender marker, I would rather hear other opinions out there first and learn more about what y’all are thinking.
So, what say you? Will legal recognition of nonbinary genders — say, allowing for a third gender marker on official documentation, as that’s how other countries have addressed this — make things easier for nonbinary people in the U.S.? Will it be harmful or make no difference? Will any practical, functional changes follow, like more nongendered facilities, or not? Would there ultimately be a purpose for this recognition?
