She has never been convicted of a crime but they want to move her to near isolation in an adult mens prison. This CANNOT happen. Here is a more in depth article: http://feministing.com/2014/04/14/how-the-connecticut-department-of-children-families-is-failing-a-trans-girl-of-color/
I put together an email for Commissioner Katz, so all you have to do is copy and paste it. Click here for the example email
Please reblog to raise awareness!
I hate Gitai. I hate him so much right now.
I have a coconut intolerance, so I can’t eat macaroons. They are full of coconut and disgusting.
When I saw macarons, I realized they looked completely different, and asked Gitai (whom I with) if they had coconut. He said yes they did.
For years I’ve been going to a French bakery once a week, looking at those colorful cookies and being sad that I can’t eat them.
And they don’t fucking have coconut in them! And they’re god damn amazing.
I am so angry at all the missed macaron time I’ve had.
Thank you so much! I love positive vibes, and though I’m areligious, I appreciate prayers too.
It’s been helpful to type out my thoughts on my blog. It’s been hard to talk one-on-one with anyone. Even my therapist. At some point, I’m going to write something to Gitai, but right now it hurts too much and I’m too angry to do write anything I actually want to send him, so this is an opportunity for me to kind of practice some of the stuff I want to say, and refine it.
There’s something nice about knowing that there are people out there who have the option to read my stuff and empathize with me, but that they also have the option of not doing so if they’re not comfortable with it. I worry a lot about piling stuff on other people. Even if they tell me it’s OK, I worry and worry. That just comes with having an anxiety disorder.
I’m super exhausted today. The air mattress I’m sleeping on partially deflated, and I just rolled right out of it onto the floor much earlier than I wanted to wake up. But I got up anyway. Since my sister wasn’t up, I took some time to search for demons for my monster blog.
Though were mostly areligious, my siblings and I went out to lunch for Easter. It’s just an excuse to hang out together. But at the restaurant, there was this baby fussing, and though I thought I had been feeling better, it just made me miss Eitan so much again.
My brother cheered me up a little. We went to Fred Meyers and messed around in the toy section and made fun of shit, and that was cool. But all this sad, and the effort of not just laying down and weeping or something has worn me out a lot.
I think I’ll watch some TV that doesn’t require much brainpower and go to bed nice and early.
So the mattress can deflate and roll me out of it early tomorrow, in preparation of going back to Gitai’s to pack.
PS for John: Your damn brown shirt Mii didn’t show up on my DS!
She’s back at the top, but I think Lupita Nyong’o needs more votes too.
From American Citizens for Taiwan (http://americancitizensfortaiwan.org/action/)
The U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs will meet tomorrow (March 25, 2014) to markup H. Res. 494 “Affirming the importance of the Taiwan Relations Act.” If you live in the U.S. please go to the ACT site now and tell your member of Congress to support this important bill, it only takes 3 minutes.
While you are there, you can also take action on the other Taiwan related bills. These bills are what we push in the U.S. to help protect Taiwan’s democracy.
I should get way more results when I search tumblr for genderqueer and genderfluid demons.
