Migrating poetry (and other writing)

So, um, I haven’t really been using this site much, and that’s kinda my bad for lacking on the poetry and the ranty rant, so, like, I’ve gotten back into writing, and my writing blog (focused mainly on Persephone at the moment) will be https://unrepentantdisgrace.wordpress.com/

Come follow along. I;ll still keep this around for ranty rants and bitching about trans shit, but I may just do a massive purge of all the posts.

Frivolus little poem and more

mmmmm coffee

hot liquid nectar of the gods

sweet ambrosia that helps me function

you make my blood pump

my heart thump

my senses jump

Ok, on a serious note, I’ve been going thru a lot lately, if you want to know more, I wrote a password protected post about it. comment if you want to see it, so i can email you the password.

 

Finally caught up

Well, now that I’ve put all that up, from three different notebooks in no particular order, Whew, tired.

You may notice after a while, I write poetry like I cook. Using simple flavors to create something complex and delicious, letting each ingredient shine on its own.

anyway, you were warned

I probably won’t be around much for the next month or so. I have so much stuff to do. I really would appreciate donations right now. I’m trying to move half way across the country, and it is so expensive. I’m already broke and selling stuff off. The only reason I even have a working computer right now is because of someone’s generosity.

Thanks for putting up with me,

Emily.

Hello friends, lovers, and other readers,

 

I haven’t been around much lately because of computer problems. You see, it seems that I can only get the keyboard to work if the mouse isn’t plugged in, and vice versa. That isn’t the only problem, but it is the most significant one. I don’t have the money to get it repaired, so if y’all could either donate some cash, or an old laptop with wireless internet capabilities, I would be very grateful.  If you wish to donate a laptop, leave a comment, and I will get in touch with you at the email address that you comment with.

 

Edit: Actually, it’s a lot worse. The hard drive is borked. I may be out of touch for a while. and the keyboard functionality is come and go.

 

Thanks, Emily

Hello, my new religious followers. And everyone else.

Welcome. You might have noticed that I’m an atheist. Allow me to clarify some things, so I don’t end up banning you.

I am not Richard Dawkins, Samuel Harris, Daniel Dennet, or Alain de Botton. Do not assume that I hold their positions. If you wish to debate them, go bother them, not me. The views of a bunch of white cisgender upper class men have very little relevance to my positions.

So, what exactly do I mean by the term atheist? Well to be more specific, I’m an anti-pistevist, agnostic, atheist.

  • anti-pistevist: against faith. I think that faith is bad methodology, and therefore harmful. 
  • agnostic: I do not know whether or not any god or gods exist. But possibility is not the same thing as probability, and without any evidence for any gods, my best estimate is that the probability of any gods existing, much less your specific god, is very low.
  • atheist: I do not believe in any gods. I do not believe in any gods because I have no evidence for any gods. If you want me to believe in them, you must show me evidence. And no, some philosophical argument is not evidence.

Ok, now that we’ve got that cleared up, I don’t want anyone telling me to prove that no gods exist. That is not my position.

Now, even if you do prove that a god exists, you still have to prove that it is your god that exists. If you somehow manage to accomplish that, it still does not mean that I will follow or worship that god. In fact, I may just fight your gods if I deem them to be morally unacceptable. I sure won’t worship any gods, and will actively oppose many of them. Any god that lets children starve is not worth my allegiance. Any god not powerful enough to help starving children is not worth my time. Any god that would invent a hell is evil and should be actively fought.

So, that being said, if you are religious, and don’t try to make other people follow the rules of your religion, or don’t discriminate because of it, I don’t particularly care. I think that you are wrong, but I care more about where you stand on other issues.

Most of the time I talk about atheism on this blog, it is because either religious people are doing something harmful, or I am criticizing other atheists. If I bring up homophobia in religion, and your beliefs aren’t homophobic, don’t waste both your time and mine saying that not all religious people are like that. I know that they aren’t. Instead of bringing that up to me, why not try doing something about it. I have repeatedly criticized other atheists for being racist, misogynistic, or transphobic.

If your religious beliefs are heterosexist, monosexist, cissexist, racist, or misogynistic, don’t bother spewing that shit on my blog. I’ll edit your comment for my own amusement, and put you in the spam filter.

Oh, and for the record, I’m pro-choice, and pro sex worker.

Most of what I talk about on this blog is trans stuff, poetry, and feminism, and whatever else I happen to feel like talking about on that particular day.

Oh yeah, and I use foul language, if you can’t handle that, then feel free to go the fuck elsewhere.

Stick around and feel welcome to comment, just remember my comment policy: don’t piss me off, and this blog is my space, not yours.

I wrote a poem tonight. . . . That you’ll never see.

I have things I can’t share. I have things that I want to control access to. I make private posts. I make protected posts. Don’t feel bad if you don’t get to see them.

And there are things that I want to share that I can’t because I’m not the only one involved.

I write poetry to deal with the things in my head. And some of these things involve people who don’t deserve their business aired publicly.

So, you won’t get to see this poem, which is unfortunate, because it’s one of my favorites. Normally I think most of my work is shit.

moderation change.

Alright bloglings.

you haven’t disappointed me yet. I’m no longer auto-modding comments. If you see something that needs to be called out, do it. I’ll edit it like usual when I check in. I’m doing this to facilitate discussion.

Don’t fuck this up.
