I haven't written about #MikeBrown today because i don't know what to say. I wish I were home in StL so I could go to the vigil. I wish his murderer was charged & convicted. I wish Mike was alive. I wish that in his death, the whole country would unite around #BlackLivesMatter. I'm getting gas in a little town called Washington in western Pennsylvania, on my way from DC back home. 35% voted blue in 2016 here, I just checked.

I'm so angry yet I feel so helpless. Racism has gotten WORSE in so many places since BLM took off. It's disheartening.

A major difference bt conservatives & the rest of us is that conservatives, for some reason, prioritize hypothetical violence above actual violence.

E.g. A woman MIGHT be assaulted in a bathroom > forcing #trans ppl to use the wrong bathroom actually IS dangerous for trans ppl Militarized police are justified and necessary, because cops MIGHT get hurt during an occasionally dangerous job they agreed & are paid to do > people of color actually, currently being killed by cops

For #TransDayofRemembrance I want to tell you a story.

Last Nov/Dec, I was homeless. @realDonaldTrump had just been elected. I was living in my car. I was cold. I was hungry. The pain from my chronic lower back issues was horribly bad, every moment of every day (1/x) Sleeping in my car was making it worse. I could barely stand, let alone go grocery shopping or walk longer than about 10 min, w/o being totally wiped out for the next day or 2. I was receiving no medical treatment for being #trans, for my #AtrialFibrillation or my back pain (2/x)
