it ok to not be ready
Please spread this shit like wildfire. People go on and sit through the whole experience and they’re uncomfortable because they just want to please their partner and they don’t tell them that they want to stop because they are not ready. It’s okay not to be ready.
I’m cutting and dyeing my hair this week and I’m going to go back to school and everyone’s gonna be like, “Damn, who’s the new girl? She’s hot.” And I’ll be like, “You’re dumb. We wouldn’t have a new student mid-semester. This isn’t high school.”
walk up in the club like “wow drag culture is more respected in queer circles than being a trans woman, i wish we could respect the lives of a subset of women more than we gawk over a game of dress up”
If nothing saves us from death, at least love should save us from life.

The chemical-imbalance theory of depression — the idea that depression was caused by too little serotonin or some other such neurotransmitter within a neurosynapse sounded scientific but legitimate science rejected this notion by the 1980s. Drug companies knew this, and so too did any psychiatrist who took the time to look at the research. But we still hear about this “chemical imbalance theory” on TV drug commercials and from establishment psychiatrists. “Pseudoscientific” is a polite terms for the use of scientific-sounding language to promote unscientific realities. Less polite would be “bullshit” or “lies.” And the director of the National Institute of Mental Health now is stating, DSM, psychiatry’s diagnostic bible, lacks scientific validity. Again, this is a polite way of saying the DSM is pseudoscientific bullshit.
