grown. ass. men.
you scared she gonna strike out yr precious baby boy? OH TOO LATE.

they were doing a special on her on one of the news channels at the gym. i didnt have the headphones so i couldnt hear the story, but one of the photos they showed was of a little girl in the crowd holding up a sign that said “I want to throw like a girl.” For every pathetic, insecure grown man who is threatened by this amazingly talented girl, hopefully there is another little girl who is inspired. But that she has to put up wit this kind of abuse even though she is OBJECTIVELY the best pitcher in the league right now and can throw a ball SEVENTY MILES PER HOUR is absolutely uncalled for. She is truly phenomenal, and those dads can all go eat shit and live

Go on with your bad self

I love that, in a brief interview I got to see, she stated that her main goal was to have more girls play ball so that “we could maybe get our own locker room.” Like, that’s all she wanted, and then she went back to talking about how winning is a TEAM effort and that the reporter should interview the rest of the team, too.I LOVE THIS ONE.

Deputy who killed former Napster COO after drifting into the bike lane while distracted by his laptop will not face charges because he was answering a work-related email.

OH OKAY.

I accidentally killed someone, you guys, but I was just doing research for an article I’m writing, so that makes it ok. That’s how it works, right?

LTMC: Meanwhile, 16-year olds get prosecuted for manslaughter for texting while driving.  But don’t worry, police don’t get special treatment.

    so one last touch and then you’ll go
    and we’ll pretend that it meant something so much more, but it was vile, and it was cheap
    and you are beautiful, but you don’t mean a thing to me

  9. If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them.

    Seriously, what the police are doing is not “bad”, it’s illegal.

    There is a reason why people are raging mad at this situation, and it’s because it’s a blatant violation of basic human rights.

    If you don’t understand that, then you are part of the problem.

    "I will mean everything" - a spoken word poem to a future lover

    Words:

    "I Will Mean Everything."

    I remember a long ago lover once whispered in my ears, “no one will ever lover you like I do.”

    I remember thinking about how romantic that was

    until it turned into “no one will ever understand you like I do”

    and finally into “people may not love you because you are transgender.”

    Somewhat true - my body has always been a threat hung above me as I navigated a world of restricted breathing under ace bandages hiding the results of my first liberty, slipping through the cracks of the binary in a society that, in the most unromantic and uncomfortable of ways, will never understand me as a double x chromosome man.

    and so here was my lover, teaching me that even through the eyes of ‘i love you and you are perfect,’ my body would remain a threat to me, to my boxed in society, and would ultimately impair my ability to be loved by another.

    six years and many lovers later I awake completely alone

    my arms wrapped around air in a space where I used to count freckles and stars

    I used to slide shadows down the collarbone of a potential wife with these callused fingertips until I chose to be alone after years of relationships, years of long distance, love, and building homes.

    I chose to be alone to learn to love myself because I was not able to love the most extraordinary person I had ever held.

    and even as this potential soulmate and I parted, I never, ever, ever told her that no one would love her like I did, because someone someday will, and I will be happy regardless if I’m in the second row at her wedding.

    Now it has been months since I have held anyone and I am learning how to move my body through a world of physical representations without a copilot.

    currently, i am doing just fine but i am awkward and have small hands and little feet and a strange way of walking and an odd way of talking and i can’t sing well but i do anyway and i can’t dance well but I’m dancing at 6 am bus stations downtown because why not?

    now i sleep naked and by naked i currently mean stripped down to my boxer shorts

    and by naked i mean that may not be your definition but everything’s subjective

    and by naked i mean here are things i have not told

    and by naked i mean i have slept in beds with attractive human beings and curled myself into a ball of mumbles and ignorance only to stretch my hear just enough to give them a soft kiss on the lips and ‘oops sorry i’m asleep now and that could have been fun’ as if this is middle school and we aren’t qualified explorers of uncharted bodies of water yet.

    i’m not afraid of questions by any means, but i have no answers

    and darling i am just too tired to explain my body to you

    anyway, i am sleeping without being held-

    and by sleep i mean i haven’t slept in days

    and by sleep i mean maybe my body simply knows that there is so much beauty in this world to see than to keep these eyes closed

    and by sleep i mean i am so lucky to sometimes catch a handful of hours where i dream of ferris wheels, and lights, and oceans because i have ebbed and flowed with these tides since my grandparents carried me on ships before i even had these eyes.

    and so i woke up today and saw all i have ever seen

    opposing fractals, kaleidoscope mountain boy in front of me

    smile wrinkled at 23, a recycled man in a repurposed body

    I’ve kept these veins around in case i need to tie this vessel up on shore

    I’ve kept this skin for when i’m reading through comments on my transition ranging from me being an unlovable dehumanized creation to being the next object of obtainment.

    it is so strange that when others see me naked now, i am only asked about what i looked like before, as if i had an outer layer scrubbed off and what is missing is more interesting.

    it is as if folks think i went into the doctor one day for one life changing physically altering surgery and came out a brand new painting, a radical transformation from “female to male, child to mane” - but in truth I have been changing slowly since fourteen, just like everyone else I’ve seen,

    I feel that I have spent most of my life proving my body and identity to someone other than myself and everyone that has seen my evidence has either questioned my crimes or joined the jury - i want to be honest in that i have relied on a lovers embrace to feel good in this skin only to have strangers shatter that open with curiosity again - and so i am calling this cycle to an end.

    so, my friends. that is where i’m from and now this is where i am -

    i wake up today and see my body as a complete ocean

    i feel whole and solid, and for a human being i “pass” pretty well as alive

    i am learning to love my body in this lonely time of my life

    as i realize that my body is not a choice, our bodies are not choices

    these complex cells arranged themselves and so instead of taking inventory of your physicality, i want to hear your thoughts and dreams and stories

    i am half proud and half ashamed of where my body has been but instead of placing blame on my own reflection

    i am counting my choices and sorting through my regrets

    blessed to find that i don’t have any yet

    and finally, to my future lover that i have yet to meet

    this is where i have been and this is where i am and this what i want to tell you when we lay down in fields, on mountains, in rivers, and under the stars.

    i have been loving my body and yours since the day i realized how silly it is that we judge so much on something that one has little to no control over

    now i love your choices i love where you have been i love where you are going

    i love how you have forgiven, i love the way you have hurt and ached and how you have taken thousands of steps since you said you couldn’t’ even move

    i love the way you’ve composed the sound of your name and the way you have changed the sound of mine

    i love the way you change each and every day, your synapses react to your soul

    i love your ribs and i thank them for keeping your little lungs and your big heart safe  cause i love the way you can beat up against me so softly and gently

    i love your body because of what you can do within it

    and what you have done with it

    and for the simple fact that it brought you to right here and right now

    i love that you will always be writing stories

    i love stories, i love your story

    so let me thank my past lovers and past bullies

    for reducing my body into a pulp that i then pressed into handmade paper

    where on i will one day write to you, my future lover

    to tell you that i can’t wait for you to come home.

    and when we finally embrace,

    when we look right through each other

    i will tell you that you are beautiful.

    i will mean everything.

    Assuming asexuality doesn’t exist is so weird like ????? Like, why does everything need to be motivated by sex? Why do people assume that it’s just that you haven’t found the right person? If you’re ace, own it, cuz you exist!
