re: uspol, covid 

i feel like there’s an angle on covid that reminds me of the response to AIDS, that because it was primarily affecting marginalized communities then reigning powers had a certain interest in letting it spread. due to privation and de facto segregation in healthcare and other necessities, covid is ravaging communities of color, so a racist empire gains a motive to let the plague accelerate. it doesn’t matter how many white people it kills, because it kills more black and brown people. the lack of response, the eagerness to β€œre-open”, it reflects the death wish of a death cult. it is, to some extent, intentional.

Pet peeve re: names 

~ Strategy One ~

Me: Hi my name is $LEGALNAME but please do not call me that, I go by $NICKNAME

And then they put me in their contacts as $LEGALNAME and they immediately call me $LEGALNAME

Me: No, no. That name isn't for you to use.

~ Strategy Two ~

Me: Hi my name is $NICKNAME

Them: Really? That's your real name?

Me: It's not my legal name but it's what I want to be called

Them: *Snoops around and finds out my legal name, starts calling me that without permission*

Benefits of a Francophone bf 

My bf has such a hard time keeping "honk" and "horn" separate in his mind and he switches them periodically and it's so cute
