Everyone has the right to write their story. After everything we've been through together that's the very least we can do for each other. Reading is fundamental. Trust others to be who they are, don't dead name / slave name others or dishonor peoples with thoughtless tokens of recognition that overlook their fuller journey and accomplishments. Have as much fun as you can as much as you can. Keeping ourselves in places is hard enough, don't worry about putting others in theirs, they'll find out where they are sooner or later. When the chickens come home to roosts, they lay a lot more eggs. Always remember, consent isn't just key, its a requirement. Make-up on your Adam's apple will make it appear smaller. Everything was beautiful and nothing hurt.
