I'm not a lesbian. I am really transgender and gay. Comfort changes everything. Having a mental security blanket is non-negotiable. I'm not an evil person.

Social skills are not about being original, they are about understanding differences. If you continue to be prejudiced for the rest of your life there will come a time when you never empathize with another human being. You're not just confused and immature - you need to have respect for human life.

"in Her dm's" - 04/18
This lifestyle you lead of just wanting to get past political correctness so you can “live your life” is a gross abuse of white privilege. You never thought someone would tell it to you straight, but it’s hurtful just the same. I feel like my privacy has been invaded and my self esteem is damaged. I wish that you didn’t understand but I think you do. Everyone does.

I'm not an experiment. My body is awesome. I don't accept your trial and error process. It's discrimination and it's violence. You're holding me back and you're insulting people relentlessly while refusing to learn from anyone. That makes you a threat to society and I am part of a society! Being politically correct is important for your mental health, and it's essential for professionalism. I can't tell you what to think and I don't have to explain myself. In fact, I need to move on with my life because I need love and acceptance and you don't understand that.

You literally just have to eat and sleep. Everybody has anxiety. There's no good reason not to have anxiety except for your health. People need money and acceptance to survive, so social justice is real. But if you can't cope with your anxiety that's not the government's fault. You can't blame minorities. It's not our fault we're different than you and we don't care, we like it that way. Social pressure is real and it's anti-fascist and we want it to stay that way.

You are right that gender is a psychological reality, but that doesn't mean that trans people or non-binary people are mentally ill. It literally means that many different traits make up your gender identity inside your head, your brain, not your body. It is what's in our DNA. It's not just about your genitalia or what your face looks like. Fascism is cruel and inhumane. You don't have to think for us, just think for yourself. You will be happier if you can just find a way to be nice. You shouldn't be doing anything that makes you feel fake, but you don't know EVERYTHING. You have to try to be grown and well, everybody makes mistakes.

I don't know everything just because I'm LGBT+. That's discrimination. Just like it's discrimination to give treatment to people of color and children instead of using your brain for context and honest & respectful communication.

I don't believe in hate. I don't make room for it. I don't think it's normal or healthy and I don't want to just stop normalizing it, I want to normalize love and health. Science is real. I'm not okay right now. This is illegal. I'm not a toy. Believe me because I will keep on living and our future matters.

I'm really hurt and frustrated by the constant threat of bullying and discrimination. The oppressive circumstances I was raised in/the way I was raised was not conducive to my intelligence or my goals, ever. The same can be said for everyone I grew up with, even people who don't think they are liberal or feminist. But especially for those who do, I don't know how this happened! Neither do you, and you don't know me. This is literally activism. Who would be occupying the middle class, the creative class if it weren't average women? Men? What are men going to do different? Finally take care of themselves? Drugs and alcohol? I just can't control everyone, I am deeply aware of that. At some point I need to know what is going on. I can't keep killing myself so everybody else feels normal. I work hard, I understand. Try to learn and make sense. Nobody can continue to answer to people who can't think about anyone but themselves.

If you needed information from me, you should have talked to me like your equal. You're a liar. Stop using my identity to joke about these circumstances. You're an idiot. We're not in a relationship, especially not one like that. You made your choices. Sex is a choice, not a social construct. Stop avoiding consent. Stop stalking me.

You can't keep forcing your standards and expectations on me and then judging my behavior OR my appearance. You singled me out because of what I look like or based on my level of security alone, and then proceeded to give me an attitude and threaten my privacy and personal space so I had no choice but to act even though I didn't want to engage your behavior. This is what harassment looks like, but it's not what it sound like, feels like, or how it affects people during and after. I don't think any of that should matter to cops and conservatives compared to justice. Equal legislation and respect is all that we need. Death is painful and careless, even today. You won't pay attention. Stop gathering details and information about my experience just to control it and criticize me. I don't know why you made the decisions that you did but my family and my future still matter. If you knew that something bad was going to happen, you should have told me. If everyone knows then that could include the families of victims. I didn't know. You can't use your resources to defame me and hurt people. Do the right thing. Peace!

I just want people to really care. The world can't function by forcing people to be afraid. LGBT+ people barely exist, Black people are still oppressed, we're not telling you to live in fear. Stop threatening us. Anxiety is not a personality trait.

You can't speak for everyone, and simultaneously only have your own best interests - not just to tell someone how to live their life. That's just lying. I'm not doing that. Listen, we don't have enough proof yet, but I will tell you everything. It's all real. Trans lives matter! Be anti-racist! Love is love! Feminism rules!

~ The Power Of Love ~
I really believe in the power of young love to create the right environment for young parents and families. Black & White, Queer and Latino, etc. I just want people to realize that even if you fell in love in a straight relationship, your kids may not be cis or straight. A lot of poor kids I went to school with were queer. And I would say that there are so few resources to go around here, that the kids who were more privileged just lied because they thought it was uncool to be gay and queer. Or they were not able to come out. So if you didn't want an education when you were younger, you don't have to get an education about pretentious academics or anything unpractical, you just to have to help your loved ones learn about life and people. If you don't accept other people they won't accept themselves. I am not an explicit person; I just had no idea what was happening until this point. There are still so many things to learn and so many things I am responsible for explaining. I just want to talk about music, art and culture. Not everyone wants to be a sex worker. Oppression is really serious. You would be surprised how many successful people started out doing sex work and waitressing and bartending, or just volunteering. 
You have to stop blaming the people who are forced into exploitation, because it's all the same stigma that affects people who aren't oppressed. Acceptance is way more powerful than exploitation. Sexual violence is atrocious. You can't force someone to care by abusing them. Sex work is not cool but for a lot of people it's not a choice so don't endanger people who are vulnerable by making jokes and pretending to be someone you're not. It just makes people feel like it's easier to lie. Being shallow is not self defense. It's not my fault that so many people haven't met anyone like me before. That is what my work is going to be about, and obviously this is what every artist's work has been about. We don't talk about it because discrimination makes it nearly impossible to talk about identity in a casual way. Don't judge people by their appearance, even your partner or your own kids. It's not okay. Homophobia, transphobia and racism is so harmful. You just don't know who is affected and it's going to make you look stupid. 
The longer you put off putting effort into looking smart, the harder it's going to be for society to heal and accept the truth. You can't decide who your children will be and neither can they, so always be supportive. Men who feel confused by feminism can focus on being honest and respecting their personal space. Sometimes being nice is redundant but you shouldn't be holding your kids hostage. You can learn from your children. (And we do! Queer/gay families are happy! We don't have kids just to learn how to act straight! The grass is greener on the other side.) Let your kids have hope in whatever they want to believe and don't put thoughts in their head. You should be grateful for activists, because no matter who you or your loved ones become there will be more context for your lives. This is the same reason we need abortion clinics, contraception and an end to segregation. Oppression is bad for everybody. Nobody is in charge of it. It just happens because some people have no self control. Ignorance is pain. Protect each other and be honest and open-minded.

Hey y'all, I'm video chatting Ted Cruz and John Cornyn as a part of a nation wide LGBT lobbying event for the Equality Act. Any sane suggestions for talking points?

Sexism is not a phase. If you're "being sexist," then are you hurting somebody? Probably. I don't like your sense of humor. It's not okay, because the other people in your life are probably affected. You're just drawing attention to yourself and making everyone concerned. Our lives are not connected. This is how we are different, not how I'm a good person. Your mistake is not my success. I've always been a good person and you're just not.

Women, including trans women (who are real women), are really good at facilitating diversity and respect, and men (including trans men, who are real men) often aren't. I can tell you what I believe, but I don't want to mediate the conflict itself. I actually know the truth and I want to remember. We all do when we're kids. It takes prejudice to force us into silence and erasure. I had to speak out. Don't let life go to waste. You don't have to think the same things as me to be a man. I'm just giving you the facts. I'm not the only one. Don't discriminate. Stop killing us.

Diversity is Awesome. #Midwest
In some areas of the country, we escape being persecuted throughout our entire childhood just for adulthood to feel like we're attending a funeral for a friend. I think that cycle of violence needs to stop. The sexism that pervades those areas of the country is just as vile for everyone, not just us feminists. The lack of resources makes education a non-negotiable responsibility. I'm sorry you feel threatened by that because it's really just the right way to be. I know you hate to be told to be a good person, but the wait is over because you voted for Trump and we don't know why. You don't want to know our point of view because you're making it unsafe for us to be ourselves or share our feelings at any age. If you are just a threat to everyone's safety there is no reason to respect you! We didn't volunteer to replace your hostages. I'm worried about other people like me, not about you. The patriarchy is flawed and you need to let people live their lives. Sexism is not youthful. That's the kind of mistake that will dictate the rest of your life. 
If you're really a conservative, you should have been more afraid of the consequences of bullying than you were of women and children. Religion is a choice, and I'm not going to tell you how to live your life if I don't understand it. Nobody said I could read your mind. Someone can, but it's not me... I don't want to. I don't like asking questions. I don't like asking men for help. It's really a vicious cycle. It's not the apocalypse, it's you. I didn't want to live in isolation. I don't want to live in fear. I just want to live free. You don't actually seem to care at all. (It's not Victorian times, I'm not lying about being trans.) Things are going to keep changing. Be progressive. Live and let live. I'm not a white supremacist. This is what it's like to know an educated person. If you keep making mistakes, we're going to keep criticizing you. If you don't want to know me, you still have to find a way to love yourself without causing harm to other people. I have no reason to lie. Be good to your friends and don't be gross. Diversity is awesome.

Discrimination is offensive and it's not my responsibility. I'm insulted, but problems don't get more personal than this. What am I supposed to do? It's annoying, to say the least.
