How to shut down a cis

Exhibiting behaviors and characteristics of both sexes is not only scientifically possible it’s more prevalent than you’d think. Most people do not remotely understand all of the factors that make someone male for instance and there are most certainly specifically biological components to the feminization of males and masculonazio of females even from before birth. Furthermore, many of these traits are passed on through increasingly unviable sperm. In a study of male Chinese sperm only 18%was viable with most having two heads or two tails or swimming in circles. Specifically those sperm dna lacked the ability to produce receptors for or produce androgens.

There is a spectrum of sex also XXY hermaphrodites and fragile X masculinized women.

Also there is a single tribe in the Dominican Republic where you can be born female and at puberty your balls descend and they have a party you are male and grow a penis. The development gene switches on then instead of inutero

Seriously it is 1% of 1 tribe.

THERE IS NO CIS BINARY EXCEPT IN YOUR HEAD SO TAKE OUT THE TRASH AND PUT KNOWLEDGE AND LOVE IN * LGBTQs ARE NORMAL*

Policy Storm

Policy Storm

If I were Queen
It would be my pleasure
To free lots of people
Starting with Leonard Peltier
Then the pot criminals
Who are not criminals
Wage slaves too
Let loose all the animals
Enslaved in zoos
Unleash rivers from dams
Banish fear from night
Quench all who thirst
For water is life
Freedom for the house less
Freedom to survive
Liberty and peace
To live our lives
Honor the treaties
Give away land
Feed all who hunger
Free women from man
Free to study and pray
In every tongue
Break the shackles of student debt
Just for fun
Freedom to travel
Free of deportation
Completely outlaw hate
From Mother Earth our nation
To rise as one
A people united
We must join hands
Stand and triumph
If I were Queen
It would be my pleasure
To make sacred gates safe
From political weather

Dear super cool badass allies

​Dear super cool badass allies,

 Thank you for privately messaging me and asking how I am or what I need. I appreciate you. Thank you. Here’s the 411. After stuffing all the food in my face day 1, anger, disbelief and writing day 2, wait how long since I didn’t vote for this shit? Day 3 I woke up with the worst migraine I’ve had in years. I already had  PTSD. I am doing fierce. I am doing shots of tequila. I am doing poems about oneness and revolution ain’t nothing changed. My soul is Free. Free Cascadia. Ok yeah I’m frozen. Can hardly move or breathe, in tears, where’s my weed? Im fine. A bunch of idiots elected cheeto Hitler that threatens me my kid my friends YOU. …..Maniacal laughter … tears.. cigarette… cookies … coffee… migraine… tequila… Cheetos… panic attack… tacos… dabs…. I’m fine thanks for asking. I need freedom, my sanity, and sense of safety. I have  a knife, pepper spray, and anxiety. At least now I know my pepper spray is old. You could get me a new one of those. That would be helpful. That’s what I need. That’s how I’m doing.Thank you. I could also use a publisher for all the poems about all the trauma incurred from all the bullshit that gave me PTSD and a few more million allies like YOU.

Tears on my plate like gravy.

so now I have rheumatoid arthritis

Ill get right to putting that on my plate

there will be room after removing wheat 

next to disabled single mom poverty poc

queen must swallow her pride

I will not be falling in the rain again

again again like last year

so now I need a badass cane for halloween

regal staff befit a queen that caters to my vanity

goddammnit my body must heal and strengthen

for I already fight with my sanity

again again doctor says lower your stress

do I cry or laugh at the impossibleness

for internal peace I occasionally find 

but the knowledge of world around me

that too makes me lose my mind 

so I apologize in advance that I cry

tears on my plate like gravy

Poverty is dangerous it puts you in places you should not be living with people who do not love you or like you or want you there who hurt you and choke you or only want to fuck you poverty takes your dignity kicks you out on the street with your wants desire jealousy poverty is filthy it doesn’t have closets a toothbrush it is losing everything again it’s even losing when you win failing before you begin poverty hurts it is separate but equal healthcare it is standing in the food bank line with the flu when the Dr said you must rest poverty is stress constant movement instability a dark vortex a sinking hole chaos is hell disconnection poverty doesn’t have a cosigner doesn’t care give a shit or a fuck about your rights needs or ability to pay for them your age or education who you know affiliations  activism how many miles you have marched or fought poverty is vets and their widows children and puppies everybodyPoverty is a starving artist who needs a publisher an agent has 5$ chapbooks but doesn’t have change for your 20. Poverty knows where everything free is resourcefuless not lack of skills just money poverty needs help is preventable by those who are very sorry they don’t accept section 8 although they feel for you , apologize because you don’t qualify , doesn’t want to be a hero but will pray for you and wishes they could help  Poverty lies to your face tells you to have positive thoughts to change your vibration think abundance life advice right now is apathetic indifferent poverty is discrimination won’t hire you or include you smiles and nods at you it is rude and condescending it is watched on the street corner poverty is pulled over for nothing,  trapped in fishing nets poverty watches videos of people freeing hopelessly trapped animals every day.  Poverty will take your car, put you in jail, foreclose on your house  This is a setup the system is working stuck here living in fear  poverty is a minimum wage hoax that charges 1000 dollars a month rent and 700 dollars taxes before you even anything  it is fining you for doing nothing nothing poverty cant participate can’t make it won’t show up doesn’t have enough can’t pay poverty is sick broke mentally ill has PTSD depression anxiety and a kid with add poverty causes conditions for  mental illness trauma and vulnerability poverty ran out of gas twice this month so far driving on 4 thread bare tires  1 almost flat on the freeway in the heat in front of your Lexus reckless poverty is not your problem poverty is dangerous and puts us all in places we should not be it is billions of people in this world  millions in america it is thousands in my town it is family that are tired of lead in their water and friends with no opportunity poverty is single disabled moms losing their license it’s dad’s with two jobs and expired tabs, grandma can’t afford her medicine again, gramps is hopeless  is nothing to anyone is forgotten and unimportant just like me.
