poetic memory

"i am not sure that i exist, actually. i am all the writers that i have read, all the people that i have met, all the women that i have loved; all the cities that i have visited, all my ancestors... perhaps i would have liked to be my father, who wrote and had the decency of not publishing. nothing, nothing, my friend; what have i told you: i am not sure of anything, i know nothing... can you imagine that i not even know the date of my death?"

I stayed in a capsule hotel years ago when I was making the rounds in Japan. Probably won’t be staying at this new one near Narita Airport now that Airbnb is getting pretty popular in Japan but glad to hear they’re still around.



Like, I’m fucking tired of having to defend not only my position in the queer community, but my right to use or reclaim slurs which have been applied towards both gay people and bi people since they were created.

I’m tired of having to remind people Margaret Cho is not an ally, she is a bisexual woman and a member of the queer community and of having to remind people that Freddie Mercury was not a gay man, he was a bi man.

I’m tired of having people call bisexual characters in videogames ‘playersexual’ because bisexuality apparently doesn’t exist.

I’m tired of people telling me that as a bi non-binary person my sexuality is cissexist and binariest. 

I am sick of gay people, not all gay people, mind, trying to shut down discussions of bisexual issues with ‘at least you can marry.’ Because, no, we can’t. Until marriage equality passes we too risk not being able to marry. And we risk the marriages we do enter into being called ‘sham marriages’ because of our sexualities.

I’m tired of the fact that it’s difficult to find queer resources when you are a bisexual person, because they’re usually for gay men or lesbians, not bisexual people, despite our high rates of poverty, of suicide, of mental illness and other problems.

I’m tired of being portrayed as naturally a cheater because I have the potential to fall in love with many genders.

I’m tired of it.

As the number of deaths in Gaza top 1000, The Times of Israel reports about an owl being hurt.

This is it. This is the Israel-Palestine “conflict” from Israel’s perspective.

Until people learn to accept that there is no difference between these two people, trans and nonbinary people will continue to deal with violence, abuse, and fear as a part of their everyday lives.
