so, my Auckland trip has not been as fun as I originally thought and I can’t find a single bloody design studio around here. Heading off to Mt. Eden now.

okay but like real talk tonight i had a conversation with my grandparents which went from talking about abusive relationships to communication to gender stuff (including how unneeded it is to gender clothes and products) to the corruptness of the Christian church to family structure to oversharing on facebook

and i was allowed to be totally open and honest with them and I have their promise that what’s said never leaves the house and I learned a lot of cool things and got to teach about cool things too

after I came out to my grandparents tonight my grandmother actually said that she had guessed it even

god im so happy wtf goodnight

tonight my grandparents, whom i rarely see but have known me all my life, have shown me more respect and grace than my parents, whom I see every day and have known me all my life

me: [comes out to parents] okay but that’s not ur legal name so im still calling you [birthname]
me: [comes out to grandparents] awesome. you’ll always be our granddaughter and we’ll love you unconditionally

Alrighty kids, time to pack and I’m GONE for two days

I just woke up and it looks like I’m gonna need to fly into Auckland today to go for a job interview tomorrow

Sick

it would sure be great if ableism weren’t literally so ingrained into our society that 90% of the time when people are insulting a bigot they’ll go for the ableist slurs
