The caricature of Ryan and people like him is that they treat the hardships of poverty as if they were merely psychological, that they talk big about dignity while ignoring the difficulty of getting essentials like food and health care. Well, it’s not a caricature: Ryan says never mind having enough to eat, it’s about spirituality:
“The left is making a big mistake,” Ryan predicted. “What they’re offering people is a full stomach and an empty soul. People don’t just want a life of comfort. They want a life of dignity, they want a life of self determination.”
Um, yes, but how dignified can you be on an empty stomach? How much self-determination do you have?
so in case you thought you were overdramatic this is probably a good time to remind you that when percy shelley was ten years old he signed letters like this
I am not
Your obedient servant,
serious romantic poets, everybody

Monday would like you to leave it alone. It is not its fault that you are emotionally unprepared for your professional lives.
Screw you, Monday. Tomorrow IS A HOLIDAY.

"…And somewhere along the way I have what I like to call a gender revelation; I realize that I don’t have to hide the feminine parts of myself to be seen as the person that I am, and I realized that I don’t want to be trapped in anybody’s gender box- not even the male one. So, over the next few months I started wearing a rhinestone stud in my right ear lobe. I bought hot pink skinny jeans. I realized that I’m the kind of boy who wears his hair a little bit long and listens to Elton John- I am the kind of boy who rides a faggot bike. I recently celebrated my three year anniversary of being openly trans and my one year anniversary with faggot bike- and no, I never ended up covering the pink with spray paint or stickers- because I want faggot bike to be who she is completely, all hot pink and green and just a little bit scuffed and dented."
