Today was sunny, I think I’m finally getting over my cold (I can breathe out of both nostrils! And take a deep breath in without feeling like my chest is going to cave! But I will miss the Robitussin daydreams!), I went for a walk outside, and more important than any of those things… today is the day that Donald Trump got indicted.
Queer as in F*ck You
“This evening we contacted Mr. Trump’s attorney to coordinate his surrender…”
Grand Jury Indicts Donald Trump in New York, First Time a Former President Is Charged Criminally. The precise charges are not yet known, but the case is focused on a hush-money payment to Stormy Daniels during his 2016 campaign.
I’d like to tell you a story about a Cheeto. One lonely, small, insignificant Cheeto. When I asked our office today what photo could we use today, pretty quickly we all felt that Cheetos was the only appropriate choice. But which one? I had suggested a bowl of Cheetos perhaps? Something that was immediately recognizable. But no. That was not small enough.
A single. Tiny. Cheeto.

The Affordable Care Act’s Biggest Gender-Based Protections Are Under Threat. “The Texas-based case examines the ACA’s guarantee that preventive medicine be fully covered. It could affect coverage of PrEP, breastfeeding counseling, STI screening and contraception.”
Speaking of those previous two news items, there’s a 24 hour TikTok-a-thon that’s being hosted by trans creators to raise money for trans healthcare, and I cannot imagine a better way to put your money where your mouth is this Trans Day of Visibility.
