Random Thursday Thoughts

No ranting from me today. I’m taking a gentler approach these days. I’m even going to resist saying, “I told you so.”

Oops, I just said it, didn’t I?

The news that Trump and his administration have rescinded protections put in place by the Obama administration regarding transgender students and their right to use the bathroom of their choice saddens me. Concerns me. Is a step backward.

But it doesn’t surprise me. And just means that we still have to fight. That I will continue to “have an agenda” and be “hateful.” And any and all other things I’ve been accused of.

Conversation between Jaten and his new boss after Jaten’s driver’s license revealed the gender marker “female”:

Boss: I just thought you were male when I met you.

Jaten: Yep, I am.


Enjoy this poem. I did.

“I was the mystery of an anatomy, a question asked but not answered…”

“And I swallowed their insults along with their slurs.”

“…and now oncoming traffic is embracing more transgender children than parents.”


Hug your children tight today. As I will mine.20161110_125316
