warning: As the title suggests, this contains STRONG opinions. I don't think anything in here is triggering, but you might be offended.

  • Pansexuality IS, in fact, bisexuality. But that does not mean that pansexuality is a bad or invalid term.
  • People should be extremely careful about labeling themselves as asexual, especially those who have:
    • gone through physical or emotional trauma
    • are not comfortable with their bodies
    • have a fear of abandonment
  • Some sub-labels are good and handy, but others are outright toxic (lithsexuality, fraysexuality, etc) to those identifying as such.
  • The God of Abraham exists, but he is far from an all-good deity, and I do not believe he loves anyone. If your love is conditional, as his is, i...

  • Chapter 6: "Sirius Black"

"So do you have a contraption, then?" he asked eagerly.

"A what?"

"A Muggle contraption!" Sirius cried. He looked almost manic now, his eyes wide and eager. He leaned forward hungrily. "With the rubber wheels and the noisy banging whirring things and the chairs inside that Muggles ride about in!"

"Eh?" Remus was completely lost.

"A...a...you know, a contraption. A clockwork coach, a noise-maker, a wretched cacophonous travesty, a...a...a...a motor!"

I began with a deep intuition that Acher had rejected second place not because [...] he craved stature or reward but, I felt certain, because he loved God with an intensity that refused limitation. If that was the case, he was to be pitied, not reviled. God broke this man, I thought, and a wave of bitterness swept over me. He created a being with enormous ability and unquenchable love but put a cap on what Acher could achieve--go this far, but no farther. [...] Acher wanted to burn. Yes, surely. He would not have wanted a heaven where he was denied intimacy to God. Had his unraveling not begun in Eden?

[...]

I woke up the next day feverish with a sore throat and a nasty cough, and I was soon on antibiotics and ordered to rest. While I lay in my bed, I reflected bitterly on the fact that no medicine could cure what truly failed me. It could no longer be denied.

I was a heretic in my own way, much like ...

pre-k to fifth grade

  • pre-kindergarten
    • I was home schooled by my mom, and she made it all into a game. We would pile all of my dolls into a car and drive it down the hallway into her bedroom where we played School.

Being a spiritual person, I've got a lot of different ideas and beliefs floating around in my head. I believe that MOST things have some sort of spiritual significance, and that includes gender identities and sexualities.

I do want to note that MOST spiritual people believe in the innate divinity of masculinity and femininity, but things tend to be very cis-heteronormative. I do not believe that this does a good job of explaining the human experience and is, therefore, not a good way to look at the human experience via a spiritual lens.

GENDER IDENTITY

  • Root Beliefs
    • I believe that the Universe is All and Everything, and yet Nothing. It is masculine and feminine--but it is also every gender in between and absolutely no gender at...

I am a spiritual person, and asking me to make a list of the things that I believe is more time-consuming than simple. I believe in many things, and there are many things I believe are possible. In an attempt to make things more organized, there will be at least two parts to this. This is a list that will cover my beliefs about the Universe, the afterlife, and deities.

  • Universe
      • What is the Universe? What does it mean to be one with the Universe? Why care?
    • I believe that the Universe is, at once, everything and nothing. It is the trees and the waterfalls, the black holes and the asteroids. It is life, and it is death. It is you and me. The Universe is absolutely everything possible and everything i...
