This is, of course, incomplete. 🤷🏻‍♂️

In 2018 (at 36), I realized my sexuality wasn't as straightforward (or straight) as I'd previously thought. It's more complicated because of course it is, but I generally consider myself bi/pan :heart_pansexual:.

money (-), help needed 

Hey I'm a queer disabled person, dealing with a lot of mental health issues and trauma.

I don't have a stable source of income and I've been really upset and unable to function much these past two weeks so I haven't been able to do many commissions and I'm running low on money. Any help would be appreciated.

It’s been two days and people are still on that Veginald post. I’m kind of astonished.

Do you lice in Texas? Do you shop at HEB? Do you like ice cream? The Creamy Creations Honey Sopapilla ice cream is _amazing_ and you should buy some so that they get the idea to keep making it.

tip to not fuck up your friend’s pronouns, especially if they’ve changed their pronouns recently: practice them when your friend isn’t around

practice your friend’s pronouns to yourself out loud. repeat phrases that you often say about them with the correct pronouns to yourself. likewise if they ask you to use a different name, say their name and pronouns to yourself over and over again. mistakes happen, but you can reduce the frequency of the mistakes by practicing

If you’re a dude and you think sexism is dead because you don’t see it, it is not. These are men that mean well and just are unable for whatever reason to grapple with their unconscious biases. They’re trapped in the “I’m a good person, so I _can’t_ be enacting sexism” thinking.

The wonderful part is: I might be, too. I wouldn’t be able to tell. You have to be willing to listen when someone else tells you because you can’t see yourself accurately.

Overhearing my wife on calls with male coworkers that she _likes_ has been a very viscerally realizing experience for me. Like, I knew intellectually that women get shit in meetings and have to constantly defend themselves. And I try to be on the look out and stop shit in any meeting I’m in. But my wife is, like, constantly having to re-explain unconscious bias to the same dudes over and over and it’s exhausting just listening. I am so sorry, ladies.
