gender and identity stuff
I feel like labels do a disservice to a lot of people, making them feel ostrasized and alone if they can’t find a label that makes them happy, like they’re missing out on a community that everyone else seems to have, and that sucks and can be very frustrating.
One liberating thing I realized while going through my gender struggle and something I try to remind my fiends who go through this struggle is that you don’t need labels. Being vague is fine. You will have community just for the sake of not knowing. Just being queer is fine. Just being some kind of non-binary is fine. Just being anything that isn’t specific is fine.

Just a general warning to anyone who uses #paypal -- never keep a balance in your account. They terminated the account I was using for @TShirtsBot and also for consulting work. They froze the money in my account for 3 months and refused to give me any reason why even after talking to someone on the phone. #fuckpaypal
