I tell you, we are here on Earth to fart around, and don’t let anybody tell you different.

-Kurt Vonnegut

You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.

Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there someday.

The most important decision you make is to be in a good mood.

-Voltaire

The mind is everything. What we think, we become.

This Is Us

Since I’m on a roll with the whole linking other people’s clever posts instead of just coming up with my own content, I’m going to hit you guys with a double.

For those of you who’ve been in the m/m community more than a year, you’ve probably seen all of this. I’m not really interested in rehashing any drama, but a few important blog posts came out of it, and I think they should be re-read with a wider context in mind.

K.J. Charles: How To Like Bad Things

I may not read or enjoy some kinds of problematic content, but I’ll defend forever the right of people to read and write it. However, when that content’s existence hurts people, it’s indefensible. When it adds to an overall problem that’s causing strife and death in our world, it’s indefensible.

So basically, don’t kinkshame. Good people can read things you don’t like. And don’t support the normalization of hatred, because that’s not a kink, and it’s never acceptable.

A mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work if it isn’t open.

-Frank Zappa

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

-Buddha
