Cisgender heterosexual white folks, this one is for you. I wake up like so many others knowing I’ll be misgendered and I can’t even wear what I want because our culture bitches about clothes like they are the one with this fake thing called gender. You make me sick not all of you but most and when it comes down to it you sit on piles of privilege miles high and you don’t even realize it. So many of you have the privilege to help but you don’t because you don’t agree with this “life style” and can’t stand change. I can’t stand you.
If you are so blind to seeing your privilege then you have way to much privilege because that is a privilege in and of itself. It’s a privilege to live in a house, it’s a privilege to own a car, it’s a privilege to stay off the street every night, it’s a privilege to have parents that actually fucking try and some what care, and it’s a privilege to have a job. So many people are blind to these facts. We see it all the time, missionaries going and taking selfies with the brown baby in the village that is infested by raw sewage and bed bugs then coming home to a nice warm bed and a comfortable house like nothing happened. Or the missionaries going to the projects in New Orleans to play with the black kids in a orderly fashion only spending maybe 3 hours with them. Causing them trauma and neglect that they didn’t need.
What I am trying to get at is this, today millions of queers woke up more afraid than normal knowing that the Supreme Court is having hearings deciding weather or not you can get fired for being lgbtqia+. It is just like last October all over again and I just want it to end. I don’t want a conservative in office anymore, I don’t want to hear you are pro-life, i don’t want to hear about guns, I don’t want to have to exhaust myself advocating for BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS, and I sure as fuck don’t want to hear you disagree with my “life style.” You are just too petty to embrace the change and you are scared to let loose because of massive constructs YOU have made. The narrative is changing weather you like it or not, so saddle up because I am not done using my voice yet.
I never would of thought I would see the day where Satanist’s are more “Christian” than the self proclaiming Christians. As a mijiority (not all) but most Christians act like the Satan they talked about being evil while I was growing up. They freak out about immigrants and they say I’m going to hell because I am different. All without acknowledging that this God they love so much is supposedly huge and loves all people. ALL PEOPLE! WHOAH what? Say it ain’t so.
Bitch, it is so and either way if there is a God or not loving other humans is the decent and right thing to do. Wanting to see people suffer is cruel and not what this life is about. Evangelicals talk about community like it is some upper level accomplishment but at the end of the day have no fucking idea what community even is.
My definition of community is the thing I get to do every day. Having 5 meetings about the same thing while being spiritually abused is NOT community. Allowing husbands to talk down to their wives and get away with it is not community. Also, being told that you and your wife have never had a fight is a bull faced lie you just talked her way down so she would “submit.”
Back to my first thought about Satanist’s being more “Christian” than the self proclaiming Christians, Satanist’s understand that no person is under equality and no person is less than. Unless they are nazis, nazis don’t deserve the time of day. You don’t get to watch minorities suffer and laugh at their distress that is not “Christian” at all. The “Christian” I was taught anyway. Satanism is a religion and still set up like a religion I’ll never join it I’ll never dig deep into it because I’m done being a part of a cult.
The value for people’s lives is way more important to me than any religion or God I could follow. People living their best lives is important and you can’t do that inside a religion. Being a nazi means you fucked up and don’t deserve the time of day I would give a minority. Your president is the biggest racist and bigot on the planet and supporting him means you are hurting me. The way I see it it’s either trump or truth and folks living truth is so much more powerful than an evil man. Open those little eyes and start to pay attention. If God is real they are just as practical as they are spiritual. Thoughts and prayers are NOT enough and you fucking know it.
I know I probably ruffled some feathers which was the plan. Im not sorry about my presentation or even what I said because its what I believe it’s how I live and after watching the last few years in America I’m tired and angry and still don’t understand why evangelicals still follow this vile diabolical human who isn’t even human in my opinion.
What if I told you I have a dream relating to art? What if I have pieces that i am ready to use and see a dream actually come true? What if the blog, etsy, and patreon are all part of this bigger plan/dream? A lot of “what if’s.” I feel like that has been my entire life “what if,” and I finally feel like i am moving forward in one way or another. It is an unreal feeling because I am living truth, im seeing things that i dreamed about when i was 8 come true and i am living MY BEST LIFE not for anyone else but for me.
I do have a dream that relates to art. Art is one of those things that is all around us and it is expression that any human can express. If you are disabled, black, white, brown, deff, blind, or any other thing that society defines us as you can do art. It’s incredible. It is presented to us in such a raw and unique way that not a lot of other things are presented. It is fluid just like how there is no gender there is no right way to art. It is expression in its rawest form.
My dream consists of an art gallery on the main level and a studio apartment upstairs. With an elevator and accessible because that is more important than any piece of art. I want to see any form of art presented and I want a revolving door of all different people and art pieces. I want to have art shows twice a month and I want anyone who is into art to come. I want to make this like REFLECT only bigger. Also would be a bit more accessible than the last REFLECT.
I also have a dream to be a full time writer/ blogger and I feel like this blog has brought things out of me I never thought I would get to share. I want to use these blog posts for a book someday and have a full on explanation of my life. I have had a life for sure and to be honest I don’t know how I have made it this far… I thought i would of been dead last year by this time. But, Im still here and I am kicking ass and i am actually living for the first time ever in 29 years.
This year has been fast. But, the stuff that has happened this year i wouldn’t change for anything. I have the most amazing partner and I work for the most amazing woman I know and I live with a group of folks that i have never experienced before. Genuine. Ups and downs but no lies, no deceit, no false blaming just genuine truth. I did not experience that growing up evangelical and living in ywam. I was taught to hide in ywam and church. Such a huge contradiction.
