the great communicator

Two nights ago, I was admitted to the ER because of how much pain I was in. I texted a friend to ask how to go about getting a blessing in that situation, and she showed up with two YSA guys, and a bag full of things I’d need. She stayed with me the whole night and only left in the morning when my Mum arrived. It was like 9:30 at night when the guys came to give me a blessing, and it just demonstrated to me how great the community is in this ward. We’re a family. They dropped everything to come to me straight away and I felt so loved. I even got a text from bishop checking up on me- he and his wife offered to come and stay with me if I needed it. Today, the missionaries brought me brownies and shared a message with me. They’re going to come with me to an appointment that I’m quite anxious about as the test is pretty invasive. I know  my words are jumbled (I’m on a lot of pain meds and antibiotics lol) but my heart is very full.

Usually when I take a day off it’s for something sensible and practical, and it’s often for someone else.

Today I took a day off just for fun that was all for me. And it was AWESOME!!

(Big thanks to my buddy John who works at Wizards for inviting me to visit, and also a big thanks to Alison Luhrs for taking the time to meet me while I was there!!)

Honestly lesbian and gay exclusionists sound dumb as fuck. You sound like those people who try to compete for who “had it worse”. You know, the people who are always one uping and invalidating every experience you have, only to shout over you exclaiming, “IT WAS WORSE FOR ME. I DESERVE ALL THE HELP AND ATTENTION. YOU DON’T. YOUR EXPERIENCE IS INVALID BECAUSE I DEEM IT TO BE NOT AS BAD AS MINE!”

And it’s funny because the rest of the LGBT+ community DO face shit just as bad as you. Asexual/aromantic people are forced into gross “therapy” to try to “fix” them. Bisexuals/pansexuals are kicked out by their parents. Transgender/non binary people are violently attacked for not conforming to gender roles. And because you feel the need to exclude all of these people and put the spotlight on yourself, they all suffer in silence as you fucking YELL AT THEM, TELLING THEM THEY’RE NOT LGBT+ BECAUSE YOU SUPPOSEDLY FACE MORE OPPRESSION.

You are harmful. You are toxic. You are responsible for kicking these groups down so that you can stand on their backs and yell about “LGBT” (more like LG) rights.

If you’re not for all of LGBT+, including but not limited to; bisexuals, asexuals, lesbians, gays, trans folk, non binary folk, aromantics, pansexuals, etc. Then you’re for NONE of LGBT+ and you don’t deserve to call yourself LGBT+ and be a part of this community because LGBT+ is about love and the right to love and live authentically as your true self and for you to take that away from someone because they’re a different type of LGBT+ is disgusting.

I’m so tired of being oppressed in my own community.

Thurston is a great communicator! Watch his head movement: you can see he is motioning at the door telling me what he wants. But he has to hang out with dad because he keeps waking mom up. Bonus points if you can guess the game ;)

I like that “good morning, princess” / “morning baby” kinda relationship. The no games, great communication, lots of sex, lots of kissing, lots of cuddling, lots of flirting, lots of being goofy kind of relationship. The kind that makes you want to run 100 miles, read books, clean up your bad habits kind of love.
