Transgendered Bathrooms

I can’t even breathe, you guys. You know, times were bad when I was much younger. Bad enough that I went back into the closet to hide. It was a scary place, it really was. None of the perpetrators in any situation were punished. If we had all known then what we know now… We could own this town today.

I was going to write a post about that. I was going to write about not backing down. About not leaving these towns. But, then, I checked my Facebook. Now, I don’t really know what advice to give there.

“The Kentucky state senate votes for a bill that would put transgendered bathrooms in schools”

While rolling this around and around in my head, trying to understand all sides of the argument, trying to form an opinion, I read the comments.

Here are some of them…

“I’m sorry, but God didn’t make you that way. That was a choice you made.”

“Good gravy, Jesus come quickly!”

“Hysterical?! I’ll tell you what’s hysterical is people that can’t figure out if they are a boy or a girl, whether you have to stand up or squat to pee. Guys are guys and girls are girls, we don’t share bathrooms! That’s hysterical now! Right is right and wrong is wrong same as black is black and white is white. You’re talking to the wrong one if you’re wanting to spread your homosexual agenda. I’m not for it, don’t want to be subjected to it, and will not tolerate it.”

It’s like that, over and over. There’s mentions of Sodom and Gomorrah, of course, and may a black hole swallow us all if there wasn’t a Boys Don’t Cry reference. They’re insisting that homosexuality is the same thing, that we’re all pedophiles…it’s more than a little frightening and these people are adults, grown people. That live close to me and mine.

I was so proud, you guys. I thought tolerance, acceptance and equality were things we could actually hope for now. Apparently, I was very, very wrong. I’m highly distressed.

As I am doing this all from my phone I can not provide you with the link as I don’t know it. The Facebook page is WBKO Television…I’m off to grieve.

Another Poem- I’m Yours

Your touch is like a drug
Coursing through my veins
And on its flame it carries
The pretty sound of your name.
And once I got a taste
I knew I’d never be the same
Your kiss is like a fire
An all consuming flame
And when it’s gone, I’m shaken
Left waiting
To be with you again
The distance, it means nothing
To how you make me feel
I never knew that something
Could feel quite this real.

Your love, it’s  like a blanket
It shelters from the cold
And in your arms I feel
Like I never have before.
I know that we can fight
And say some petty things
But all of that means nothing
To the feeling that you bring.
It’s in the way you look at me
And the way you hold my hand
Its in the way you smile,
You see,
The way you hold my heart
Its in the way you whisper
That we’ll never be apart.

I’m Baaaaack!

Alright guys, I’ve been missing for some time and I apologize. I’ve had to face a lot of set backs and a lot of problems and blogging just had to take a backseat.

I can honestly say that I’m not where I wanted to be at this point but I’m right back on track to getting there. I also have this nifty WordPress app on my phone now that will make things so much easier!

As for an update in my life, Mia and I are still together and very happy. The actual name Mia comes from my nickname for her, miabear. I find it highly amusing that at this point all my friends have taken to calling her that as well. A small few may believe it to be her real name.

I’m back now and will be posting happily and hopefully regularly very soon. I’m also extremely excited to let you guys know that I’ve started another story. Now, I’ve always wanted to write some form of femslash even if it wasn’t fan fiction (this isn’t). I’ve always found it hard to write as it seems too close to home for me.

It will be original fiction and my inspiration for it came to me through an Autostraddle article about Alice Miller and Freda Ward. I’m still in the early stages of planning the story as is but the idea has overtaken my mind to the point that Mia clearly no longer wants to hear it. Yes, it will be a romance/tragedy and if anyone is interested I will be posting it on Fictionpress once I start writing.

I’m an avid supporter of fanfiction as well. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned that before at all but there really needs to be more femslash out there and I can’t help but wonder if it’s due to others having the same feelings that I do, that it’s just too close to home? I also wonder if any of you are into fanfiction? If so, what movie, show or book do you read it about? Are there particular pairings you’re fond of? Let me know in the comments!!
