My family doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving, it isn’t because we aren’t grateful for all that we have, quite the opposite is true. The biggest reason we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving can be seen by paying attention to what is happening at Standing Rock in North Dakota. We don’t celebrate a holiday that celebrates the murder of Native… Continue reading Thanksgiving
The time has come for us to stand up as one to speak out against this inhumane treatment of Native Americans, protect a water source for millions of people, and to protect sacred burial grounds. Since I cannot make it to Standing Rock personally, I am doing everything that I can to spread awareness of what is happening there. Together as one, we can make a difference.

Let us work together for peace, because there is already enough suffering.

I feel like the question can be applied to any public facility like bathrooms… Continue reading Bathroom Hysteria – Q&A
The evening before last I had fully intended to kill myself. I was, and frankly still am, tired of the struggle. I’m tired of nothing ever seeming to get better no matter how hard I fight. I’m tired of seeing facebook post after facebook post of states in the US making laws that blatantly descriminate… Continue reading Empty
I hate visiting the doctor, I hate it to the point where I have to pretty much be on the verge of death before I’ll visit a doctor. Part of the reason is the usual lack of punctuality for almost any doctor that I’ve been to, and part of it is because I am transgender.… Continue reading Doctors + Being Transgender = Not Good Bedfellows
