America was never great

It is July 3rd, 2019 and what the fuck is going on? Kids in detention centers after being ripped from their families in one of the most “pro-life” nations on the planet. Why? Also why are women getting put in prison because they where pregnant and got SHOT? Why? Then folks with disabilities don’t even have basic rights still. America this is fucked up.

America… Was… Never… Great…

It was built on the backs of the indigenous people and people of color along with black people. The white CiS male came over here and took over showing us yet again the white CiS males are a real problem in America that we just ignore. We have ignored this fact since America was founded all because people are too afraid of change.

It’s all about picking yourself up by your bootstrap and getting that white picket fence with two kids and a dog… Gross. That is not the ideal life and yes this is my opinion but putting YOUR opinion on peoples lives and how to live in this culture is slavery. That is your idea for my life I never wanted that. Culture told me I want that.

The fourth of July is a day we celebrate but instead we should be grieving. We forget that this nation was found on slavery. You all this is a “pro-life” nation what the insane fuck? After growing up being told to tell the truth all the time and the truth will set you free was just a bull faced lie. Non of them where telling the truth they just craved change but where too fucking afraid to embrace it. Truth should not be this hard in a Christian nation. I grew up Christian and the shit evangelicals do is cultish, hateful, rasist, and prove they are bigots therefore Christians are liers and full of contridiction.

So, remember tomorrow for the fourth what actually happened. Remember that our culture is extremely fucked up and so full of contridiction. I will not be celebrating I can’t in good spirits anymore. Not while kids are in detention centers and mom’s are going to jail for miscarriages or getting SHOT and sent to prison because the baby died when shot. Not while there is still homeless folks and not while people go hungry every day.


Change the fucking narrative so the culture changes.

My name is Sasha Adele Braden, a transgender woman, who is queer and living in freedom. I knew I was transgender at the age of five because my development just seemed off so I had an inclination something was very wrong. I was locked away because of shame and I decided that I was going to take my truth to the grave and never open up to anyone because I was full of fear. That all changed February 14, 2018, when it all came out. I’m free. I’m alive. I’m learning that life isn’t just eating, sleeping, having sex, and going to the bathroom but it is so much more! Learning that has been a blast! I am also co-managing a grassroots organization called, “REFLECT” and it is all about trans and nonbinary expression through community while being able to completely lean on allies. I am super stoked to be doing this and being a safe place for the queer community of Austin, TX. Look up my Facebook page “REFLECT” for more details. With all of that said, welcome to my life. I welcome all types of people and welcome all types of dialogue. So, drop a comment or two on a post every once In a while​ this blog is mainly just a way to let go of trauma from my past. Expressing it has helped me overcome things I thought I was never going to be able to overcome and I’m living in freedom for the first time in my life.
