Have you ever just looked at someone and thought, “I really love you”. They’re just talking or humming or watching a movie or reading a book or laughing or something, and there’s something about them in that moment that makes you think, “I just really love you”
Eventually I’ll start posting “original content” again. I’ve been spending a lot of time enjoying the company of a young lady, and I’ve been trying to actually be there. That means leaving my phone aside which has been a lot harder than I would like to admit.. but it’s well worth it.
I’ve also been writing some new music, but I’ve said that sentence about 100 times in the last 5 years so don’t hold your breath for recordings. Still, it feels good to express myself musically again. It feels even better yet to -want- to express myself musically. Apathy doesn’t suit me much.
Anyways, I don’t follow all that many people, but if you’re out there reading this, thanks for being interested. I really enjoy reading/seeing posts from people, I mean, reblogs are nifty and all, but even one or two sentences or a picture makes me feel somewhat connected to you lovely folks.
Keep on keepin on.
People being angry about ~dem gays~ on Target’s Facebook.
I just want to give my two cents on this and tell you a story.
A couple weeks ago, I was hired at Target. I have a job at Target. Not a big deal right?
It is a big deal because i’m a transman.
It doesn’t take a genius to conclude that it’s hard for me, my brothers, and sisters to get a job. There are legal restraints regarding the job and if you don’t pass, it’s hard to be taken seriously at a job interview.
Right on the application, it asks what your preferred name is. It also asks if there is anything that target should know. I put the fact that I am a transman, expecting not to get a call because usually when you put that down, people will throw out the application. I got TWO interviews.
At the interview, they asked me about it. I told them I am on hormones and they told me that they didn’t care. Not in the sense that they don’t emotionally care, but that it didn’t matter. I was male and that’s all that mattered. They also told me that they give sex same couples benefits in states that do not recognize them as a married couple.
At my job orientation, I was not misgendered once. Even my supervisors who weren’t sure of my gender avoided pronoun use, which I found only happens when you’ve had pronoun training. They gave me a name tag with my preferred name and didn’t ask questions. I felt safe and respected, which is huge for a trans* person.
TLDR: Target is amazing not just for the LGB, but also the T. Shop there for the rest of your life.
Target are honestly doing retail so bloody right
I have never admired a shop more than in this moment
Angela’s comment is my favorite because of irony.
Lol people still getting mad at ads that feature same sex couples make me laugh.
I’ve received a good amount of support from everyone with the launch of my 5$ LP moving sale. There’s still 20 days left in September so I need your help keeping the sale going strong. Post a picture of your copy of #HopeIsAllWeHave and be sure to tag #BarnBurnerRecords and help me make some new friends!
