Death (mourning/eulogizing), eye contact
My dad's dog, Abbie, passed away this morning. She came into our family when I was... Maybe seven, and she lived a long and wonderful life. She was a real queen of a dog, and we treated her like it. She was an amazing dog, and I'm going to miss her for the rest of my life.

Copy/pasted introduction from my other account
So I'm Amber. I'm #trans (she/her). I came over from Tumblr because their new policy is (unintentionally?) targeting #queer content and I'd like a place where I'm safe to be myself. I'm into #science and especially #space, #dnd, and #programming, as well as #leftist #politics and #activism. My best friend is my #dog, Lena.
Can't say it's the most I've ever felt threatened by an American flag, because every flag flying from the back of a lifted pickup takes that award, but damn was it ominous.
I drove to the next big town over with my partner for a job interview yesterday, and we passed through a little town with American flags on free standing flagpoles every 10m or so, and it was the most ominous thing.
I'm feeling like... really dysphoric, I think?
neoconfederate yelling racist and misogynistic slurs
Lol my partner and I went out to protest alone with the dog, and we had a guy stop, hold out a folded Confederate flag he had in his car, and yell "the South will rise again," "hell yeah, KKK," and "lesbian cunt."
Pretty sure he was trying to provoke us into something he could use an excuse to shoot us.
BLM, trans healthcare thing
I'm so fucking tired of telling people to stay focused on the protests instead of getting all doom and gloom about the healthcare rule. Like, there's shit all we can do about the healthcare stuff without allies, and we (white trans people) are alienating all our best allies by ignoring their problems when they need us most.
We can't fight this healthcare thing within the system right now, and Biden isn't going to beat Trump (not that he'd fix things if he did). Our only hope is standing together and maybe getting a revolution out of this whole thing.
And for saying this, I'm getting called a hypocrite and a transphobe. Fucking hell I hate other white trans people sometimes....
protests, white supremacist violence
They talked to a local white supremacist who was publicly threatening the protest and, rather than either taking him in for FUCKING DEATH THREATS or asking him to stay away from the protest, just asked him not to start anything unless we started it first.
A "bucket of rocks staged downtown" was their only excuse to buzz us repeatedly with a police chopper and try to incite right wing violence against us.
It's a planter with drainage gravel at the bottom.
