asking for help to get away from an abusive living situation, boosts needed
does anyone nearby (i'm in riverside county, in southern california) have a place i could stay in the near future? like, a couch i could sleep on? not yet, but it looks like things are gonna go to shit pretty soon no matter what i do, so it'd be nice to have an escape plan ready. my parents have been incredibly abusive since i moved back in with them, especially since they found out i was trans. today they went into my backpack and took all my hormones, and that's only the tip of the iceberg of the bullshit they've put me through. at the end of next month they wanna take me to mexico and i wanna be gone before then. please help.

I’ve dumped a good amount of my severance on movement work only because I know the money will come back to me (it always does). (https://v2.jacky.wtf/post/d4baeb04-0933-4e44-999c-0dc0c60a9bf0)
Sweet Pages and I were talking about gearing up and going to get some ice cream somewhere but decided it's probably better to stay in the house because if some white person says something slick while we're out either one of us is liable to open hand smack the fuck out of them.
So we're not even gonna tempt fate like that.
Ok, so the new solar charger I bought doesn't put out enough juice to charge my laptop so I'll have to look at other options for that, but it it's fine for all my other devices like my headphones, bluetooth speakers, phone, etc etc, so I'm going to start running all of them off of that
I get good sun from my window so I'll keep there to charge when I'm not using it and just plug in devices as needed.
I'm glad I bought this little thing. It's really gonna come in handy.
I speak plainly about bigotry and hate because it is not healthy for us to censure ourselves to appease a culture that even hates itself.
I often dismiss bigots asking me about what can be done to resist hate because it is not on us to regurgitate information that has, quite literally, been explained a billion times but they are too lazy to do any work on their own.
Displacing anxiety onto us to fix racism we are not responsible for is a function of white supremacy.
That is not our burden.
The line that stuck with me when I first say Julie Dash's brilliant Daughters of the Dust is that "We must survive."
The people that came before us didn't have the opportunities we have before us and still made the choice to find a way to get through.
The sacrifices they made aren't to appeal to a social that is defined by their hate, but rather to give us a model for progress.
I don't care what white people think about me. I want to make the world better.
Just like the ones before me

The weight of realizing how much destruction and violence white political dogma has wrought on the world is not our cross to bear. That's for people who primarily benefit from this destruction to carry.
Our burden is to maintain our health and joy in the midst of their madness b/c our ancestors paid a heavy price to get us here.
Which is why self care is such a revolutionary act.
The society we exist in wants us to strip us of our humanity b/c they've gave up theirs.
Self care is saying NO
As with most issue in America, we figured out how to fix them a long time ago.
The core issue in America is that white Americans are mortgaging their future to keep inequality in play b/c it makes them feel better.
The delusion of superiority is more important than a steady nation or even survival. They use their numbers to support policy that continues this violence.
The problem is and always has been white people.
