I'm Jez, 27, American, Ace, Genderfluid, Spoonie. I used to be in the US Army, but EDS put a stop to that.

On this blog you will find some writing, some politics, occasional art, lots of feminism & Sherlock, and my own personal ramblings. Blog should probably be considered NSFW, just to be, ya know, safe.

I tag the shit out of most things, and am happy to tag anything you're trying to avoid, triggers, spoilers, etc; just let me know in an ask. I also queue almost everything, so I may or may not actually be here for any given post.

Finally got over to the campus GLBT house today, which I’ve been meaning to do for a while. Talked to one of the people who run it, signed up for the mailing list, looked around their library (they have a library entirely devoted to queer issues!!!! With movies and books and documentaries!!!! Which you can check out!!!!!!! Aaaaaahhhhh)

Aaaand then i sat down & talked to them about the Ace group I’m trying to start out here. I had no idea what sort of reception I’d get, but the person I talked to was nothing but positive. They proudly showed me the one book on asexuality they have in the library (there’s a second one, but it’s apparently checked out atm) and were really excited about the prospect of having some real live asexuals to share more resources with them. It kinda seemed like I was maybe the first ace, or one of very few, anyway, that this person had ever actually met, lol. I was honestly just glad they’d even heard of us, and that I didn’t get the cold shoulder right off the bat.

They have a bulletin board there of various queer groups on campus & around town, and said if I brought them info for my group, they’d happily put it up too. So yay, larger queer community! Yay, possibility of wider representation soon! Just generally yayyyy~

“I remember when I was doing “Rent” and I was too thin, and I was doing that on purpose because I’m dying, I’m a HIV+ drug addict. I remember having to eat raw food and doing all this work to make sure I could stay thin… And I remember everyone asking me when I was doing press for the movie, “what did you do to get so thin? You looked great!” and I’m like, “I looked emaciated.” It’s a form of violence in the way that we look at women and how we expect them to look and be, for… what’s sake? No…

I love her so much, you guys.

I just want to use my freedom of speech to tell everyone about a low-key college that not many people know about. In college, rape happens quite frequently when the dean of a school lets students with gang murder charges, sexual assault, assault, and any type of criminal background go to this school with a 100% acceptance rate, New Mexico Highlands University.

When too many criminals are put in one school just because they are so desperate for any type of income and/or a good sports team, the students’ safety are in danger. That is why the college denies it and covers it up. Crime statistics here are thought to be false. Schools that are 4th tier aka low income, low graduation rate, low GPA average, high drop out rate, and highest STD rate are so desperate for money because nobody wants to go there after all the stuff put in the news about the school that they are willing to let ANYONE in, as I previously said NMHU has a 100% acceptance rate for these reasons.

I have had friends who have been raped and assaulted here and I have personally been assaulted. The dean showed no sympathy and did nothing about it. Many girls ended up dropping out of this school and their half-completed education went to waste because nothing is getting done about it. Help spread the word!!!

This is awful. Please reblog to spread the word about a college that does illegal things to students who to to expose them for covering up crime - the more outrage there is, the more likely it is that something will be done about it.

Let us be vividly clear about this.

What the New York Times did to Michael Brown today was not merely slander. It wasn’t a case of a lack of journalistic integrity.

Highlighting that a black teenager was “no angel” on the day he is being laid to rest after being hunted and killed by racist vigilante forces is not an unfortunate coincidence.

The New York Times deliberately played into an archaic American tradition in devaluing both the merit of black life and the tragedy of black death.

They chose the day of his funeral, as his family, friends and activists everywhere have to grapple with a human being lost to pontificate about how he was “no angel”. Michael Brown was many things to many people; a son, a brother, a cousin, a nephew and another black causality of murderous police institutions and today, amidst all the racist violence he, his loved ones and community have had to endure, he was going to finally receive the respect and moment of honor he deserved and NYT decided today, of all days, to tune in their audience onto wholly irrelevant facts about his life - that in turn, transform the very injustice surrounding his death and the following police violence that plagued Ferguson into a national panel about whether or not his death is actually worth mourning and their language suggested that to them, it indeed is not.

This was hardly an accident or mistake. This is the perpetual hostility that is met against black life in America. The consensus is that black people deserve no respect and for black life to be legitimized and honored, we must meet a list of prerequisites. Subsequently, if black people aren’t valued, neither are our deaths understood as tragic or murders seen as criminal action.

This has been the atmosphere of America since its inception and much has not improved.

Hey guys, take some time to check out Kitestring. It’s web/SMS safety service and it’s looks like one of the better ones out there - I am signing myself up now!

If you feel unsafe for any reason, tell Kitestring to check up on you after a pre-determined time. If you do not respond, Kitestring will send a message to your emergency contact (with a message you can customize). When you get to your location safely, text ‘ok’ to Kitestring and it knows you’re safe.

This looks to be an excellent safety service; as I used it I am happy to share my experiences!

Here’s an article about it.

Here’s the website to sign up — Kitestring.io (note: this appears to be US only as of writing this post)

And unlike some other apps/services, this doesn’t require you to do anything ridiculous like “keep your finger on the screen” when you feel endangered. I’m not sure I could do that while walking even when I WASN’T scared/stressed out! You just set the time you want it to check on you (as little as a minute and as much as 24 hrs as far as I can tell) and then hit the button to tell it you’re going out.

You can respond with your codeword that tells it you’re fine, or you can even set a “duress” word that you text it instead, which is good for cases like date rape where the other person won’t let you leave or even kidnapping where they demand your password so everyone will think you’re fine… Putting in the duress codeword makes the app appear as though it’s logged you as okay (so your attacker doesn’t know what’s up & then get angry) while sending a message to your emergency contacts, which you can also customize.

I currently have two separate messages: if I fail to check in, a sort of “I might be in danger, give me a call?” message; and for the duress codeword more of a “If you’re seeing this I definitely feel I am in danger!” message.

And in the case of going on a date, you can obviously customize your message(s) to include the name of the person/people you’re going to be with and where you’re supposed to be, plus any other pertinent information should anyone need to come looking for you.

Seriously, I cannot recommend this service enough. Everyone go make an account!! It’s completely free & takes maybe two minutes to set up!!
