It looks like I will be taking a blog vacation again. This time it’s not to deal with Internet addiction (I’m quite happy being addicted to the Internet and plan to stay that way, thank you very much!) it’s actually because I have too many projects on the go. I have agreed to read and edit a manuscript for someone and now I am also diving head-first into my own creative writing project. Now, look, I’m one of those people who has started writing a novel multiple times and never actually finished any of them, so I make absolutely no promises that I will eventually show you the fruits of my labor. However, the creative juices are stirring and so it’s time to take a break from writing political opinion pieces for a while and try storytelling instead.
You all know what I’d have to say about politics anyway. Every day there’s another article about a toddler socially transitioning because he’s been playing with the wrong toys, a school forcing teen girls to accept pervy boys in their locker room, and a transwoman in prison who’s going to die if he doesn’t get his makeup delivered on time. After a while there’s just no need to comment anymore. Kids can play with any toys and this means nothing about their “gender,” women and girls deserve privacy from men, no matter how those men feel about their “gender,” and transwomen in prison should have considered not murdering or assaulting anyone if they didn’t want to be in prison. And they aren’t going to suffer any harm because they can’t wear makeup. (For fuck’s sake, actual women have been fighting for the right not to have to wear makeup!)
I say I’m taking a blog vacation, but I will still be on WordPress reading other people’s blogs. I just won’t be writing new pieces for a while. My last blog vacation was about a week and a half, so I don’t know, maybe this one will be like two weeks? Three weeks? I don’t really know, it depends when is the next time I see something that really pisses me off and I have to say something about it.
You are welcome to comment on old posts if the mood strikes you, and you can consider this an open thread for now. By the way, I seem to have quite a few new followers lately. Feel free to say hi and let me know what brought you to the gender critical blogosphere.
Discussion about pets and recipes okay here. The only thing I won’t tolerate is anyone saying they’re jonesing for a pumpkin-spice-latté-flavored consumer product from a mass-produced chain coffee shop. Puke! Pumpkin spices should only be consumed in an actual pumpkin pie.
