Sorry for all the changes, everyone!

Greetings, Anyone who is actually reading this blog at this point in time! As the title suggests, I’m sorry for the changes. I’m currently working on blog reconstruction. I’ve moved it from being wordpress-hosted to bluehost-hosted, and it’s definitely an adjustment. Lots of tech to learn. But hopefully it will

I found poetry that I actually like. What the hell.

So it’s like, really rare that I find poetry (or psalms or written prayers, for that matter) that are compelling and actually make me feel some sort of emotion. For a while, I thought I was some sort of emotional mute, incapable of feeling the emotions that normal people could in

A Trans Meme and A Christian

I don’t fully know what the Christian response to Trans issues should be. I haven’t researched it enough, and I don’t know enough about the Trans community to understand it yet. 

But I know it’s not this.

I have a phobia of automatic toilets.

Me and my family are pretty convinced that this phobia stems from when I was a kid, and we’d go to the bathroom and the automatic toilet would flush on me.

We point to something about ourselves and twist our identity around it and say “this is how I can live with myself.” But everything we can come up with involves comparison.

We point to our way of living and say “I don’t murder. See look, I’m not that bad!”

On Net Neutrality

There’s a lot to distrust about the government, to be sure. But there’s a lot more to distrust about the 4 major internet providers in this country who currently stand to have a lot more power to glean money from their customers.

Regarding Campus Preachers

I don’t fully remember what it was that I heard while walking past this scene, but I do remember that even though I did walk into the building, I had to stop, turn around, go back, and pay closer attention.
These preachers weren’t just saying that everyone is a sinner. They were saying that homosexuals are evil and are going to hell. They said that the women on the campus were whores, handing out their virginity for fun. And they said it violently. I was furious.
