I just had a therapist’s appointment and had to start filling out this intake survey for new patients or whatever and one of the questions was “sexual orientation” and I was like…oh? I actually don’t know what the appropriate thing to write would be? like, n/a??? I must have filled out stuff like this in the past and I must have written “straight”, because I’ve never had that moment before. I feel like I’ve been identifying differently for a while, but maybe not as far back as the last time I filled out a slightly intrusive form, ha.
it seems like netflix now lets you turn off the english subtitles on foreign movies? hellz yeah
i know we were definitely all soundwaves once
birthed out of the way the mouth forms the involuntary
the way the brain pushes our teeth out from under itself for protection
the way our names push themselves out from under our teeth to protect us
in hebrew, “Jessica” means foresight,
it hisses from my jaw to protect me every time I introduce myself
i wonder what it always sees coming
reblogging without comment except I have so much comment. I’m bad at this. Don’t listen to me.
