I just found out that someone I knew was murdered. We weren’t really close, but we went to the same trans group when I was living in Ohio.
Earlier this year the body of another woman from the same group was found in a pond, her murderer just convicted less than a month ago.
In the weeks leading up to TDOR, a number of my friends in Virginia were mourning the death of another woman who was killed at just 23, a woman who I only met briefly.
The day before TDOR this past year, Islan Nettle’s murderer had the charges against him dropped. I didn’t know her, but I have friends who did.
Shortly before I went to the Trans Health Conference, Donna Ostrowksy committed suicide. Like Islan, I didn’t know her, but had many friends who did and one of her short stories sits on my bookshelf.
This past TDOR was far more personal than any other I’ve ever attended. Less than a month since, next year’s is gearing up to be just as close.
Sometimes I’m confused by Canadian stereotypes but then I realize that we literally dump maple syrup onto the snow, wait for it to get gooey and then scoop it up with a stick and eat it
you better not be fucking with me canada is this for real
it is all too real
BOOBS ARE LITERALLY LUMPS WITH SMALLER LUMPS ON TOP WHAT IS SO SEXUALLY ATTRACTIVE ABOUT A LUMP!!!!
What is sexually attractive about any human body part really? Penises are just tubes with lumps connected to them. Asses are also just lumps. Your face is just a collection of different types of lumps and there’s a hole on it. Everything is just a lump. I can’t get off to this. Now, a rhombus, that’s something I could fuck the shit out of.
Eins, zwei, drei, vier, fünf, sechs, sieben, acht …
um, dois, três, quatro …
Un, Deux, Trois, Quatre
It’s not a very good one.

OKAY YEAH LET’S TALK ABOUT TAMIKA FLYNN BECAUSE SHE’S SO IMPORTANT
So not only is Tamika a teenage girl (the most hated of all creatures) she’s, in my opinion, the most important character in this story. Actually one of the most important characters I’ve ever come across.
Tamika’s a 13 year old WOC, a group historically kept “in their place” with illiteracy, but we first heard of her when she saved the city’s schoolchildren from murderous librarians, all while completing a reading list way above her age level. Well done, Tamika.
And yeah, I noticed the “stocky” comment. I too punched the air at the “stocky” comment. Because not only is she a 13 year old WOC, she’s Not Thin. Not exactly someone who gets to be included most of the time, let alone written as the hero.
And yet here she is, Tamika Flynn, kicking multiple asses all over the damn place, literally taking down helicopters with slingshots and leading the city to revolution. And if that hasn’t convinced you this podcast is the tightest shit then get outta my face.
TAMIKA. FUCKING. FLYNN.
Nature is gorgeous, and it is horrible, and it will kill you.

Seriously, I haven’t seen anyone else do 80s Mayor yet. Look at her! The glovelette! The shorty-short frilly dress! the tail binding! I can’t be the first to tackle this cutie!
Wait. Modern Mayor Mare is old and gray maned. So just how old is Cheerilee? .-.
Um..she dyes her mane…
