Hi! I'm @thraeryn, the admin of thraeryn.net. I hope you'll be able to have real conversations and form real friendships with other Mastodon users here, both locally and in the wider fediverse.
If you see something, say something. Each and every toot has a "Report" feature. I hope users will be able to toot harassment-free, so I'll be watching.

I made it through about six hours of being out & about, two hours of that playing Santa and being in Performance Mode–then another hour and a half getting dinner, hitting a bank, and doin' a couple of stores with my kid. Big Box stores. At Christmastime. Accomplishment. ✅
I have two party invitations and a friend is performing at a small venue tonight. I–uh. 🔲

I was never kicked out. I was never disowned. They did things to show love, and I'm grateful for a lot.
Despite learning half a lifetime ago that they couldn't sway me or divert me, and despite seeing my life fairly happy and on the rails, they would still really rather I didn't live it the way I do. I'm healthy, I have a happy home and family, my life is full of love, and they wish I wouldn't.
I'm sure these are familiar feelings for many. Show of hands?

I appreciate the kind words, friends.
A fair bit of this stuff came to the fore when, a couple years ago, I publicly indicated my #polyam by announcing my intent to marry my second partner, who is not the mother of my child.
Two days before my birthday, I listened to my mom telling me this partner wouldn't be welcome at family occasions b/c my granny wouldn't understand.
She later apologized and recanted. The damage was done. It was a new cut atop older scars.
"... You say you love your children above all else, and yet you are stealing their future in front of their very eyes.
We have not come here to beg world leaders to care. You have ignored us in the past, and you will ignore us again. We have run out of excuses, and we are running out of time. We have come here to let you know that change is coming, whether you like it or not. The real power belongs to the people. Thank you."
