I love this!
For folks whoo run contests: Instead of judges’ boys and girls might I humbly sugggest the following gender neutral alternatives:
I think I shall have a bechelorette party celebrating that I am not getting married ever!. It’ll have balloons and cupcakes and the like. It’ll be glorious!
Happy International Women’s Day! It’s today, btw. Don’t let Google’s flub make you think diffeerent :) Let this day (and beyond) be dedicated to celebrating and comemorating the triumphs, struggles, and work of ALL who SELF-IDENTIFY as women regardless of ones presentation, or mode of dress.
It is my hope that we remember that the fight for equality and justice involves all of us, and that until we’re all free, nobody’s truly free.
For those who were at this past Leather Alliance Weekend’s roast of Andy Cross, I present to you the following from my weird little head…
Time Life DVD series coming soon…”Time Life Presents: Thib Guichard-Callin Roasts”! Tune in as some of our world’s greatest writers, speakers, and titleholders cringe, quiver, and get reduced to the likes of small children as Guichard-Callin’s good-natured, yet pointed jabs pierce their egos one by one! Call now and receive a bonus DVD: “The Stars Fire Back”…etc…
Dear Muni riders, I want to know what your issue is with moving toward the back of the bus. I mean, if you have a mobility issue, that’s a different deal. But if you don’t, what’s with the getting on, paying, then just standing there and jamming up the front BS? I mean, how would you feel if you got on the bus and folks just said “No. You can’t get through”? Because that’s essentially what you’re saying when you get on the bus and create that annoying log jam up front. Stay classy, Muni riders!
For those I know who’ve won, or ran for leather titles (or those who are on facebook anyway) my questions for you are:
What made you decide to run?
What did you hope to accomplish with the title(s) you ran for?
Did you accomplish these things?
And…if you got to rewind the whole experience, would you have run?
Went to Berkeley tonight to meet with my sponsor as well as to hit a meeting I’d only gone to once before: when I spoke there. Unknown to me was that tonight’s speaker was someone who I’ve had a lot of respect for for a lot of years. He has awesome recovery, and a story and message I could relate to. I’m going to be heading back to Berkeley tomorrow to see my sponsor get her chip. That’s TWO East Bay meetings in ONE WEEK!
Anyway, those who have read my posts have probably read this before but everything and everyone I have in my life today I have either directly or indirectly because I’m clean. Now, I’m a full believer in harm reduction. In fact, that was rec-confirmed by tonight’ share, and is also one of the many reasons why I love tonight’s speaker so much. He has been part of 12-step recovery for many years, and yet he still remains and unwaivering proponent of harm reduction. People should be able to decide what to do with their lives that’s best for their circumstance. Abstinance happens to be my harm reduction. If it’s not yours, that’s okay. Everybody should be allowed to decide for themself without fear off being rejected or shamed what they’re able to do to increase their quality of life.
I’m on my way home now. My joints hurt from the day, and from the weather but that’s okay. I’ve still had a good day
Having a little bit of a “low self-esteem day” I think. Not feeling super engaging with folks I would usually engage, and kind of questioning whether or not I really have what it takes to do this running for a title thing. This is SAN FRNCISCO! What business do I have thinking I have wht it takes to represent it? Having spent the majority of my kink life in in San Francisco, I have been able to get to know a lot of former and current titleholders. A lot of these people I look up to immesely as role models. What makes me think I have what it takes to compete for a space among them? Am I merely fooling myself thinking I’m someone I’m not? I understand that these sorts of days will come and go. Odds are by tomorrow I will feel different. Heck1 Later tonight I might feel different.
Tonight I plan on going to karaoke with a bunch of queers. I’ve been going for a few weeks now, and it’s always a fun time because it’s low pressured; a lot of the people who go are really friendly; and it gets me to be less stuck in my head.
This life thing is a one day at a time deal. It’s a one day at a time thing whether I’m feeling great or feeling crappy, feeling proud or feeling…not so proud. I guess when I have one of my low self-esteem days I just need to tell myself that it’s just one day and that no matter what happens, this day and this feeling will pass.
One day, the role of a trans person in a major movie will be played by a trans actor and not a cisgendered actor who was picked because he was famous or playing “alltrnative roles”. One day, if that movie receives an award, it won’t just be the GLAAD award or anything limited to the LGBT ccommunities. One day, movies popular in the mainstream that have trans leading characters will have the fate of those character be something other than death or serious injury. I’m not sure when that day will be. I think that day will come. If hope it does come in my lifetime.

it exists outside of dating
outside of flirting
it just exists
