- i am AWFUL at being sick. the amount of snot and phlegm existing in my body right now is so gross and i also can’t make any decisions. my spine is like GO TO YOGA PLZZZ and my mind is like DO NOT INFECT OTHER PEOPLE, ASSHOLE. and then somewhere in there (probably my boobs or my cunt or something) i’m like FUCK ALL Y’ALL GO TO CRUELLA because they’re closing and you need some gear for this weekend.
- just found out there’s a benefit/conference for toronto leatherwomen on sunday, which is great because i’ll already be in toronto for the aslan leather switch partyyyy. however, they say their dress code is “fabulous fetwear,” and i don’t actually own much fabulous fetwear. i do own some fabulous lingerie and a little bit of leather, so perhaps it’ll pull?
- i need a houseboi. do my dishes, fold and put away my laundry, and clean and polish all of my leather, and you can jerk off on your knees while i pet your head and tell you what a good boi/boy you are when you’re done.
- fuck this weather. it’s too fucking cold.
"Try this practice. Every time you go to a leather or kink event, look around to see who’s missing. Do you see a sea of white faces? Only able-bodied people? Mostly slim, conventionally attractive folks? Mostly people who make a living well above the poverty line? Mostly people aged thirty-plus? Mostly men? Is everyone cisgendered? Once you’ve assessed this, take a look at the structural elements that might have produced this situation. Could the advertising perchance have given the impression that this event was only for people who look like fetish models? Did the price exclude people who work for minimum wage? Do the thirty steps and no elevator mean that anyone with mobility issues quite simply can’t get in the door? Next, think about what you could do to change this situation. Perhaps it might mean approaching an organizer and noting that there’s a situation going on they might not have considered. There’s no need to be mean about it—in fact, the best kind of calling-out is the kind where the caller then offers some support in fixing the problem. But yeah, talking about change and making change can be uncomfortable, so expect some of that along the way. If you’re an organizer, this could mean organizing an event in a way that’s really pretty different from what you’ve known so far. Yep. Sometimes leadership means exactly that."
