Like a vlogbrothers video, I read this book in 3 parts. 25pgs in I fell asleep because being an adult human is exhausting.
Then I restarted it in the bath and only took a hiatus to get out of said bath and move to my bed where I promptly fell asleep on Page 159.
Finally, around 6:30am I woke up to a bedroom light still on and roommates moving around the house and when falling back asleep didn’t happen by 7am I kept reading. Until now. Now I am sobbing. I am crying and having that existential crisis of trying to decide whether or not TAtWD has topped TFiOS as my favorite John Green.
I can tell you that I will probably never stop thinking about this book and I think it should be required reading.

#metoo: The same night that this was taken, one of the guys in the gay club that I was dirty dancing with put his hand up my dress and started to pull down my underwear. I pushed away and connected panicked eyes with one of my gays and he pulled me away and started dancing possessively with me because we both knew that someone bold enough to try to undress a stranger on the dance floor wouldn’t listen to me alone.

I still had a great night. He didn’t get to steal that from me. I still had overwhelmingly positive memories from this night and so then this became my profile picture, October 28, 2007.

I started noticing catcalls from drivers when I walked the dog in my neighborhood around age 10/11.
I was socialized to take it as a compliment. So I did.

At my first job, a local radio station DJ said I looked straight out of Baywatch on the air when I walked over to their poolside broadcasting van celebrating the start of Summer around age 15.
I was socialized to take it as a compliment. So I did.

Also around age 15, I was harassed at my school for being a slut due to all of my boyfriends. At the time, I was still heteronormatively a virgin and they didn’t believe me. Then when I actually did have sex with my boyfriend for the first time and decided to confess that “secret,” the same harassers called me a liar who was just seeking attention.

I was socialized to think that after the first time having sex with a boyfriend, it wasn’t my place or right to stop if I had said yes before. That my automy to say no ended when I loved them. I usually did and most of my exes all were the types who listened but I still felt guilty or like a bad girlfriend when I spoke up.

This status is for every “freak dance” and phone number and kiss I gave or slap on the butt or sleazy comment on my attire I ignored because it was safer to.
Earlier I commented: I am numb to it. If I don’t see the words, I just assume that friend of mine is choosing not to participate. Literally every female or femme person I know has a “me too” story. And yes, I have cis guy friends and masculine trans friends who have stories as well.

This status is for stories I won’t share because I don’t have to and it’s not your right to know.

We are being socialized that it’s “just a part of life” and it’s not okay. Let’s be the era that literally says No to this. 💗✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿

Hot date! 🎃 This is also the result of my 2nd use of @overtonecolor to help my latest hairscolorkersplosion last! ➡️ Swipe for color progress between the two uses! I liked the results best when I put it in dry hair and washed it out later. The first time, I only used pink. Round 2 I used mostly pink but then supplemented the bottom with purple. 💗🎨💜 #31daysofhalloween #nonspon #pleasespon😉😂 #nomorecoldshowers #overtoneconditioner #unicornhairs 🦄

Just because I’ve only “officially” had “boyfriends,” doesn’t mean I’m straight just like not being in a relationship for the last 9 years doesn’t mean I’m any form of ace. 🎨 I loved cosplaying Betty so much last year for all the aspects of her character including that she was openly not straight and that her girl gang loves her and supports her 💯 I’m so thankful for all of the people in my life who love and support me and if they question anything about me, it’s not my identity (it’s more like when the other RQs question Betty when she packs #candyanddrugs for dinner on a raid). 🌈💗 #HappyNationalComingOutDay 🌈💖 #31daysofhalloween #mentalhealthawareness #internationaldayofthegirl #queercosplay #womenofcosplay #dragoncon2016 #dragonconcosplay #cosplay #ratqueenscosplay #ratqueensbetty #bettythesmidgen ⚔️: @loandbeholt 🔮: @wyldkysscostumes 📸: @hanskokx

I’ve had 24hrs of feeling anxious tightness in my chest. I’ve had 24hrs where part of my brain just keeps pushing for a spiral. 🌀
Sheer will, the knowledge that this weekend I will give myself a massive amount of self care, and the need to face the tasks at hand one at a time are currently getting me through and not without pushback inside my own head. ✨
The current social media socialization has this taboo almost when it comes to sharing anything outside of “this is how wonderful my curated life is” with a few exceptions for requests for recommendations or medical announcements. This act of putting a “filter” on your life if you will. Well here is my favorite Instagram filter overlaid over the decision to document that I’m having a “bad brain day.” That I’m struggling and stressed and while I’m not okay right now, it’s okay. Or it will be okay. I need to just keep swimming so to speak. 💗
