shoutout to trans girls who like to wear “masculine” clothes
shoutout to trans boys who like to wear “feminine” clothes
shoutout to non-binary people who like to wear clothing that people might see as gendered
shoutout to every trans and genderqueer person whose identity is fucking valid forever no matter what they wear or don’t wear
if i ever misgender you or use slang (bro, man, gurl, dude) that makes you feel even slightly uncomfortable please tell me because your gender identity and comfort is more important than any word i may use to refer to you
it’s adorable when you don’t gender a complete stranger pass it on
“We still live in a binary world in which the idea is imposed on us that there are only two genders; we need to change that perception.”

"I think we all evolve as we get older and that’s normal but I like to think that my recent transition hasn’t made me into a different individual. Same person, no difference at all just a different sex."
for chinese new year they get all these famous actors and comedians together and they do a lil show and one of the comedians was like “i was in a hotel in america once and there was a mouse in my room so i called reception except i forgot the english word for mouse so instead i said ‘you know tom and jerry? jerry is here’

"Yes, a liberal Republican. What happened to them? They got run out of your party. What did liberals do that was so offensive to the Republican party? I’ll tell you what they did. Liberals got women the right to vote. Liberals got African-Americans the right to vote. Liberals created social security and lifted millions of elderly people out of poverty. Liberals ended segregation. Liberals passed the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, Liberals created Medicare. Liberals passed the Clean Air Act, and the Clean Water Act. What did Conservatives do? They opposed every one of those programs. Every one. So when you try to hurl the word ‘liberal’ at my feet, as if it were dirty, something to run away from, something that I should be ashamed of, it won’t work, Senator, because I will pick up that label and wear it as a badge of honor."

So stoked about the Hobby Lobby ruling today. Officially going to incorporate myself so I can get a religious exemption for my student loans debt they violate my deeply held religious conviction that all debts are supposed to be forgiven every seven years, as per the book of Deuteronomy.
You are so much more than a number. Never forget that.
I do not need to justify eating. I do not get to decide if I have done anything to deserve it. There will never be a reason I don’t deserve it.
I am a human. I need to eat. It is a basic human need and there is no debating that. I need to eat.
