Can everyone please start proactively telling their white girl friends not to do dia de los muertos facepaint for halloween, especially white folks telling other white folks. I know it’s early september but you can never start to early on curtailing this bullshit.
mentioning that you’re cis and putting your pronouns in your sidebar/about make you like 500% more trustworthy bc it means that you’re a) likely educated about trans issues and b) working to denormalize being cis [bc generally only trans people are expected to mention their pronouns and gender]
it’s also really helpful in terms of accessibility for disabled people like me and for folks on mobile
if you can then
maybe do that please

I heard there’s this small island where they limit the use of electronics and times to allow for much less light pollution. You can see the whole night sky and it’s magnificent
I want to see the whole night sky!
That’s it, I am going to plan a weekend to drive to the least light-polluted area within a 4 hour drive of my house asap. I want to relax on some grass and enjoy the stars before the snow comes.
you ever think about something a friend said to you months ago that they probably thought was casual conversation but that ripped you to shreds, made you question your identity, and left you trying to figure out whether or not you even needed them in your life?
its really important for men to stand up to other men who say terrible and sexist shit
because sexist men dont listen to what women have to say
literally the most important thing men can do if they want to call themselves feminist allies
Urbance is literally about forbidden hetero romance in a land where everyone is gay. evil gay overlords stoppin the hetero. the designs are gorgeous but be aware of what you’re potentially funding. Not saying funding it is that black and white either -it’s nice to see a cast that is primarily black, for instance, but every time Urbance info goes around I end up seeing people get disappointed when they learn the premise.
Health is not a moral imperative.
The state of a person’s health does not define their worth or their success.
Being unhealthy is not an invitation for judgment or ridicule.
Framing health as an achievement is not only misguided, it is actively harmful.
Basing your respect for a person on the state of their health is violence.

Last thing I said to my family: "I am going to keep avoiding you all until I feel more like myself” (been feeling sick lately… curse this career!)
One place that makes me happy and why: anywhere during the summer that is outside with grass and no light other than the stars. I really love space and stargazing and I wish I didn’t live in the middle of so much light pollution. I feel so at peace and insignificant yet also so important.
How many blankets do I sleep under: I have my two small tie-blankets, one of those nice blankets with the little holes that you usually see at hospitals, my comforter, and then a crocheted afghan I throw on top during the winter. I sleep in the basement of a MN house… I am never too warm.
Favorite beverage: a wildberry smoothie from mcdonalds except without the yogurt and with ice cream instead. Haven’t had one of these since I quit working there three years ago now, but so delish!
