Personal Updates & Thoughts About The Future

Part of why I've been quiet here is that we've been prepping to move. It's stressing all of us.

Most of my winter clothes and blankets are buried in storage, the only closed toed shoes I still have out don't fit anymore (need to look up what age feet stop growing), and as cold as it is here, it's worse where we're going.

Writing wise, I was planning to post more about things like activism, prejudice, and similar stuff already, but the election results make it more urgent. I have this schedule partly planned out, but I have a bad habit of not sticking to my blogging plans. So I'm going to try to post at least once a week for now. If I feel I can take on more without it turning into a disaster, I will.

I will also finally get some ads up here, because I'm broke and can't find a job since I don't have the needed references, skills, or disposition.

Seriously, why does it seem like every damn job wants someone who's cheerful?

Finally, my mental health issues have been at some of their worst states in the past few months. And everything going on hasn't helped. And thanks to my aforementioned location change and brokeness, seeing a therapist isn’t an option right now.

So in short, everything is difficult and I'm done. On the bright side, my siblings will let me stay with them while we figure this living situation out.

I'll be back soon.

Why I Stopped Believing That Being LGBT+ Is Sinful

Content notes:Heteronormativity and transphobia, mentions of sexual assault, suicide, hate crimes, and other forms of violence.

Sometime late last year, I realized being attracted to someone of the same gender, acting upon that attraction, or being transgender are not sinful.

I had heard about some quirks in the original language the Bible manuscripts were written in. It didn't convince me at first.

But the failure of conversion therapy helped push me in the right direction.
