    Makes me misanthropic as fuck too. Lot of that hate's self-directed--I know there's a problem but I'm too weak-willed to do my part. That's actually useful, but the general misanthropy sucks anyway.
    Looking at the numbers, it's probably impossible to prevent unless global society as exists now, is entirely overthrown overnight. Then, there might be a chance of mitigating the worst. In a planet with billions of people, there's nothing one individual can really do unless people as a whole decide to take action. No amount of pedagoguery is going to change it, which I think you probably know. You're being a little harsh on yourself by saying that it's am atter of being weak-willed. The only way things will change is if people learn through their own experience that they must.

    Long story short there's now been a major break in the family, apparently precipitated by me openly transitioning. I will maybe go into details later, maybe not. I'm taking this reasonably chill because I've already had many years to come to terms with the family situation (about which I've largely kept silent hitherto). But let's just say a couple facades have crumbled; a couple things have fallen into place fully, too. The only real family I have now is my chosen family. Life can be weird sometimes.

    I came very close to winning $7 today.

    I did not win $7.

    Though I got a free Coke, so there's that.

    I didn't miss this place, but I needed to be back here.

    Sorry to hear that members of your biological family choose to see you for whom they think you should be and not who you actually are.
    Glad you have a real family who does love and support you.

    If a hell exists, I'm probably going to it.
    By tripping into it.

    I shouldn't laugh when I'm sad and supposed to be serious but here we are folks

    My brain constantly feels like it's fuzzy. I have racing thoughts, intrusive thoughts, and so often it feels like I'm thinking through fog.

    I hate it.

    My grandma sent me a letter deadnaming me and accusing me of having changed my name to be part of a satanist cult.

    What the everlasting fudge???

    That's pretty disgusting, Zami. Sorry to hear it. At least you know it's so over-the-top goofy that it's not worth troubling yourself over.

    I hesitate to explain to her what being transgender means but I guess it would just make it even more cult-like in her head... SMH

    I wanna troll her and send her a Baphomet plushie xD But it could kill her with a heart attack ^^;
