Why Worry About (or report) the American Chernobyl Reboot When There's Trans People Simply Existing?!
This blog features a ton of video resources and while I'd prefer people watched them all to accompany my article, if you're only gonna watch one...watch this one.
I wanted to write this blog from a sarcastic POV about how of course, it's more important to dehumanize trans people and craft legislation that attempts to eradicate them from society in the name of freedom, but that is not my swag and frankly, it's too early for my brain to try that. I'm still adjusting to fixing my sleep schedule, so I'll have to skip the games.
I haven't written as much as I'd like in the last few months, and the main reason behind that is depression. It's hard for me to find a purpose or meaning for anything with how fucked up humanity is and how WOKE I am to its horrors. I'm on multiple meds that are helping me cope with life, and I feel much better, but they aren't miracle pills. They might be able to alter brain chemistry, but they don't affect the toll being a halfway decent person with empathy that continues to see horrible, hateful news on the daily and stupid people bragging about their lack of decency and education in the name of "owning the libs."
In case you're unaware, the United States is on the fast track to fascism thanks to pieces of human garbage like Ron DeathSantis and countless other GOP scumbags actively trying to dismantle public education amongst many attacks on the American people and freedom as we know it. They prey on the unintelligent, which, unfortunately, this country (and their base) is loaded with because public education is intentionally not a priority because that would be terrible for the ruling class. Also, capitalism will be the downfall of society. We live in a country that caters to the wealthy and their interests. They use cultural war bull shit to divide the working/dissolving middle class to distract them from the true enemies. The 1% loves that you're more worked up about Mr. Potatohead dropping the Mr. than being exploited and a victim of their wrath. Yeah, post about the "woke M&M's" and not how Wal-Mart and Amazon are worth billions but pay employees so poorly that they still need government assistance to survive. Your tax dollars are subsidizing billionaires, but who fucking cares when a history teacher is trying to explain to children that slavery was evil?!? They want to take your gas stoves!!!
You might've seen some coverage about rail strikes in the past few months, it was hot during the holidays, but you've likely already forgotten. It's easy to with how our news cycles work and the day-to-day worries of managing your own life and your family if you have that responsibility. Do you even know why the rail workers were striking? Sick days and better working conditions.
Like countless historic disasters, the derailment in Ohio on February 3rd, 2023, was not surprising to some. There were fears something like this could happen, but in the name of profits, corners get cut, there are concessions, then BAM, tragedies like this happen. Who gives a fuck about air quality when there's people who simply want to be themselves???
This tweet has some typos, the video attached to it is what matters.
Great explantation here:
The video below shows what happened to a journalist trying to cover the disaster. I know we're amidst a significant democratic backslide, but we're still a free country, right? At least on paper? What happened to freedom of the press? That seems like a low key essential aspect of being an American and might've even been covered in this document that everybody gets so worked up.
But who cares? There are trans teenagers on hormones! And some even have parents who still love them. Oh, the horror! These same "don't tread on me" assholes are more worried about how someone who has literally no effect on their life presents themself to society than actual problems in this country and abroad. I don't need no woke ass clean air!
My heart breaks for the trans community and the attacks they've been under by hateful pieces of shit. Love thy neighbor, my flat ass! As a low key God guy, I find their behavior appalling.
I love sports and comedy and want to write for Barstool more than almost anything I want in life, but my morals and beliefs trump (lol how ironic) everything. I used to be lost and hate on "SJWs" and "wokeness" before that was one of the biggest buzzwords in America. I was selfish and a piece of shit. If something didn't affect me, I couldn't care less. I am so ashamed of who I used to be. That's why I'm so vocal now about showing people how fucked up that mindset is. I don't care if my friends or family disagree. It fucking kills me that people I love believe this trash and have been brainwashed in the name of "faith." No decent person can call themselves a conservative in today's climate. Pay attention to history. These people are following the Nazi's playbook like a bad coach who can't develop their own plays. The fact that fucking drag shows are such an "essential" issue with all the real problems Americans face is fucking ridiculous.
Every accusation from the right is a projection.
These jerks claim queer people want to "force their live style" on you because that's what they do. These same people who sign up their four-year-old daughters to get spray tanned and prance around in a bikini claim they don't want children to be "sexualized." Then they bring their eight-year-old son to Hooters after little league. I could go on for fucking hours, but this shit is exhausting and literally breaks my heart.
The state of the world has done all it can to destroy my will, but I won't let it (at least I'm trying). All I care about is trying to make the most out of my time, whether it be another 60 years or 6 minutes, and doing all I can to be the best person I can be. I want to do what I can to leave the world a better place. I want to spread/experience love and spend time with the people I care about...IN A FREE COUNTRY where you don't have to worry about getting gunned down anytime you leave the house (or even while you're home).
People shouldn't have to pick between food or medicine, while billionaires who cheat on their taxes decide what 84th car they want. I don't care who has my back or not on these issues cause I know, at the end of the day, I'm on the right side of history. Speaking of that.... NO BOOK BURNERS/BANNERS HAVE EVER BEEN ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY!!!! Maybe if we didn't let fascists write curriculums, more people would know that?
How fucking stupid is this shit? It reeks of closing public pools once they were open to black people. This town in Michigan closed their fucking library instead of letting queer people have representation.
Actually, I lied. I do care who has my back. I care a lot like Faith No More. It kills me to see people I care about be so hateful and close-minded. I can't wrap my head around why anybody would want to make life worse for large groups of people (especially when they likely never impact your life). I understand hating individuals who wronged you, but focusing all your energy on an entire group is wrong (that doesn't count with hating bigots and oppressors). It's crazy to me how many people hate the trans community and have literally never met a trans person, or better yet, have but didn't know.
This blog was super therapeutic for me, and like nearly everything I write, I'm sure I'll get no feedback and minimal views, but in my heart, I know what's right, and I'm proud of the man I am. Writing has helped me grow and mature more than any other avenue in my life. If you agree with what you just read, that's awesome. If not, hopefully someday you come around. It took me longer than I'd like to admit, but it's never too late to improve yourself.
I am dead serious about this. Once I'm back in the 200s, this is happening. Rhoda Sandtits/Santos is gonna fight fascists by being fabulous lol.
