I’m doing a bit of an experiment, and possibly proving a point to myself.

Does it count if I hate a specific sound? ‘Cause when people chew with their…
There are several very specific sounds that make my skin crawl. I will fidget almost uncontrollably in an attempt to avoid or distract myself from the triggering sound. Which never works.
Gah. Not fun.
Swallowing. I even hate when I start to hear myself do it. And breathing. Ye gods-allergies and cold seasons make me want to claw someone’s eyes out.
It must be a shock to see me like this, in comparison to the incarnation of me that you know in your time. Things do get better, I promise you that. And quite honestly, I’m not sure where I’d be right now if it hadn’t been for you. Probably dead.
my friends write some great, great RPs
what if every time you messed up a physics problem instead of just being wrong the universe altered itself to compensate for your mistake. like you’re all sitting in class when suddenly every crashes into the ceiling because “DAMMIT JIMMY GRAVITY IS NEGATIVE 9.8!” and they made laws preventing dumb people from trying to science and terrorists just ran around scribbling incorrect equations and people survived gunshots by miscalculating momentum and you know just what if.

#i think it is very important to remember that literally every human being who has ever existed was kind of a dork#you are kind of a dork#i am kind of a dork#all of these soldiers are total dorks#your favorite person in the world is kind of a dork#so is your least favorite person in the world#as a species we are dorky and awkward and very bad at being functional adults#welcome to the crew#and happy new year (swanjolras)

Janani - “trans/national” (CUPSI 2013)
When I tell my mother
how long I’ve been sitting
in the shiftiness of a female body,
a million different kinds of monsoon tears.
She tells me about
the white men who colonized her country,
her mother’s sari soaked in saltwater,
the traumas she screams about
this is what I remember
when I talk to white trans men
and witness the million different ways
they take up space
in my community,
and speak for trans women of color,
and treat femmes as arm candy,
and do not own their position as white men.
what I mean is
did you think the M in FTM stood for misogyny?
What I mean is
what about your female socialization
do you think affords you a free pass to patriarchy?
What I mean is
I understand your bodies have not always been yours
but they have always been beautiful,
you have always had words for them.
My testosterone is made by Israel’s largest company.
There is colonization running through my bloodstream
Every time I take a shot
my muscles feel out of place for several days.
But there is some perverse satisfaction in this,
that even in my body
masculinity takes up too much space.
Mom, you’re right.
this is a painful process.
It is violence.
It is scarring.
But I’m trying to believe in something greater:
that there are ways of being a man
that do not involve being a white man.
When I tell my grandmother
that I’m ready to be honest with my body,
ok, make sure to call me more often,
and I’m sending you a drum set.
For days I have no idea what she means
but then I realize
in India only boys ever play the drums,
and what my grandmother means is
there are ways of being a man
that do not involve being an American man,
that you can still play your music with us,
that I do not have words for this process of your becoming
but I will work around it with art and love.
there is a way to do this ethically.
I will build some other, new-old kind of masculinity.
I will not worry about the words for it in English.
I will honor the mothers in my history,
the goddess in my name,
I will play the drums for you.
You need this in your life. Just trust me.
You do. You really really do.
…did he just do the hammer shuffle on ICE SKATES?
