skating and kayaking

Four days without writing.


My head is quiet.

Today, in addition to being Thursday of Teen Read Week, is also Spirit Day for the Trevor Project. It's a day when we carefully think about acceptance and love for all kids.

I don't like the word "tolerate."

It sounds like a chore you would be forced to do to put up with something unpleasant, like bad breath or something.

Just to be "civil," which is a stuck-up way to be.

If all you do is "tolerate" LGBTQ kids, then the best you can expect is for other human beings to "tolerate" you, because you stink, or shit like that.

Make yourself more pleasant than that.

Smell nice.

Love kids.

Go put on something purple.
