When you hear bills about "Sex trafficking!" you need to read it in the same voice as bills about "Bathroom predators!" It's a ruse, but this ruse is bipartisan.
In my seemingly never-ending quest to test all the recipes in my 2017 #NaNoWrimo draft cookbook, I discovered an entire section of recipes that consist of just the headings.
Like, no ingredients, no instructions. So yay, more words? Probably makes up for all the verbose stuff I've been deleting.
In other news, this evening I made Tortilla Casserole for dinner, and if I get my paperwork done and bills paid, I will test one or two dessert recipes.

Yesterday, I got my phone back after misplacing it. Phones ought to go in purses or pockets, not, as it happened, on the counter of a store where I just saw a shiny!
Today, I am going to try to resist the temptation to toot every single time I get something done!
US Politics, racism Show more
The Republican Party, in an effort to seem less racist than it demonstrably is, recently took away Rep Steve King's committee assignments over his recent racist comments.
His recent comments only. Because he's made plenty of racist comments in the course of his career.
Racist policies, which are arguably more damaging than King's bigoted utterances, remain unchanged afaik.
If the GOP really wanted to be seen as less racist, then maybe end for-profit prisons?

I don't have a mixer, creaming the sugar and the butter is probably a good workout
the saddest thing to me is when other trans guys bully and condition themselves until they've learned to act exactly like cis men.
We get screwed over in so many aspects because we're trans and yet we're throwing away one of our few virtues: being socialized from birth to be empathetic and compassionate toward others. "but its feminine!" my dudes if kindness and genuine connection to others is unequivocally feminine (which it isnt) i never want to be masculine. And being feminine doesn't make you less of a man anyway.
Don't drink the cis masculinity koolaid my dudes. Stay gold trans boy.
