I guess I haven’t posted about this in detail on tumblr yet. Basically the situation at my house got so toxic and scary that my mom ended up threatening to shoot me and break my neck and kick me through a wall and she kicked me out. Pablo came to my rescue and I live with him and Robbie in Austin TX now. I’m starting over from scratch again, which I’m so tired of doing, but it’s necessary and I’m so beyond lucky to have Pablo in my life. I had to abandon most of my plants and my vivarium (which is killing me because worked so fucking hard on that thing, but I’m hoping it sustains itself long enough for me to go back and get it) and I miss my cats so much and I have less than $60 in my pocket and it’s sad and scary but I’m trying to focus forward. I’m just so glad I don’t have to do this alone, and I get to do it far, far away from my terrifying and beyond dysfunctional family.
- liberal: um has this revolution been approved by the state?
Holy fucking shit. I was about to text my best friend/sister pablo and be like “guess what i live in austin now” but then I remembered I LITERALLY LIVE WITH HIM NOW.
- Me flirting: Look at that tree.
To be clear: this is not just an issue of police brutality
This is specifically an issue of police brutality against black people
Mike Brown was shot simply for being black. Most of the protesters were black. Most of the journalists who were arrested were also black (or at least nonwhites)
This is pretty much entirely about race and if you ignore that you’re missing the point entirely
Why do police have quotas? If a doctor went around intentionally sneezing on people to get more patients, that would be seen as a travesty to their profession. But police, can sit around and wait for someone to turn on a red light or commit other mundane ‘offenses’ because they have quotas to meet. Quotas are all the proof we need that policing is not a public service vocation; it’s a business and a subsidiary of Wall Street.
I’m drunk! Light a candle for me!!!!!!!!!
