Just told the cat to “use your words.” 🤦🏻‍♀️

January 2020 is closer to the moon landing than it is to July 2020


Apparently we never get tired of Potatoes Au Gratin. Kind of a PITA to make, though.

The word "nonbinary" alone doesn't really say much about the person who uses it. What gender(s) might this person have? Do they have none? Is "nonbinary" the entirety of their gender? There are even more possibilities.

What this term does is create starting point from which to learn about it's bearer.

"Nonbinary" is a simple word for a beautiful and endlessly complex people. So, set aside any assumptions you might have, and make room for the unexpected.

The cat keeps knocking her toys under my chair. Unsure of whether she’s bringing them on purpose or if it just happens to be where they wind up.

Protip: when someone from an opressed group (e.g. POC, immigrants, women, etc) complain about something a privileged group tends to do (white, non-immigrants, cis men, etc), if you are from the privileged group, there's no need for you to comment assuring that you don't do these things. There's also no need to comment "lol yeah we're horrible aren't we" on a serious post about terrifying opression. It makes you seem defensive and like you're not taking opression seriously.

If you don't do those things? Congratulations! You don't get a medal, that's a bare minimum. If you do those things? Quietly improve and maybe boost the post that made you realise that you did wrong.

I know it doesn't seem like a big deal if you're privileged but it gets tiring when half the replies on a serious post about opression are joke replies by the privileged group.

I wish I had the time to do Hobo Christmas this year. I've been too busy trying to make sure my own shit is in order, with travel and caring for one of our dogs and a hundred other little things. It's not a great feeling.

It frustrates me that so many outreach programs want to impose over-strict morality and care on people who already lost everything. They think they know how people can be better, and they try to hammer the homeless into their own cookie-cutter forms.

Vices like drinking and smoking are extraordinarily human. It makes me angry that people claiming to care for others demand the performance of denial before offering assistance.

Hobo Christmas, alc mention 

There's always a need for socks, blankets, etc. in winter months, and people in need are grateful for them.

That's not Christmas, though.

This holiday, consider just buying a six-pack of beer, a few bottles of cheap champagne, and handing them out personally. Give someone the gift of your accepting that they are a person allowed to have vices, allowed to want a drink with a buddy. Bring a damn cookie and a 40, because a tray of vegan spaghetti ain't Christmas.
