A Rapist's Tears
In response to my anger, he says, ” Having to constantly worry about what’s going to set you off, having to constantly go through the words I say to you and think of ways you’d take them or react to them because I’m afraid of how they might register with you.” MAYBE YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE RAPED ME.

TW for SI: Confession
So, after two years, I started shaving my legs again (which you can read more about here, TW for assault), and just now in the shower I shaved over a mosquito bite and I seem to have sprung a leak. The blood just isn’t stopping. And it’s been a long time since I’ve had a cut like this and I’m just thinking a lot about back when I was all kinds of lost in the world of...

liquornspice: Which means hoards of shitty white kids clogging up everything with their shitty white parents. Run people off the sidewalk? Oh! Didn’t even see that nigger there! Oh well, probably just an ypsilanti hoodlum! Cross the middle of a busy road w/o breaking their stride? We are a white family, you use this road with our permission!

If you’re trans and need a place to stay, or if you...
New Coffee Machine
We got a new coffee machine in my office today. I waited all day for my favorite coworker to come back to the office, so we could get a cup together. He came back, but had just gone to starbucks.
