VERY FEW PEOPLE MAKE IT THROUGH “INITIATION”. ESPECIALLY NEUROTYPICALS, CIS HET, OR WHITE PASSING FOLK WHO DON’T HOLD THEMSELVES ACCOUNTABLE OR TAKE OFFENSE WHEN I DO.

AT A CERTAIN POINT, MY SYMPTOMS, BEING “TOO” OUTSPOKEN, AND HAVING “EXTREME” VALUES OR OPINIONS, BECOME A DETERMINING FACTOR IN MAKING OR BREAKING A RELATIONSHIP - PLATONIC, ROMANTIC, OR FAMILIAL.

I’M SLOWLY BUT GRADUALLY LOSING TOLERANCE FOR PROBLEMATIC BEHAVIOR. YOU CAN BE A GOOD PERSON BUT THIS ISN’T SOMETHING I WILL COMPROMISE. I HAVE NO TIME FOR EVEN A HINT OF TRANSPHOBIA, HOMOPHOBIA, RAPE CULTURE, PEDOPHILIA, RACISM, SEXISM, MISOGYNOIR, XENOPHOBIA, COLORISM, FATPHOBIA, AGEISM, ISLAMOPHOBIA, OR ABLEISM BEING UNACCOUNTED FOR IN MY CYPHER.

ACTUALLY, I’VE NEVER HAD THE TOLERANCE. THE DIFFERENCE NOW IS I’M ENFORCING ACCOUNTABILITY BY CHALLENGING MY ANXIETY AND CONFRONTING ANYONE IN MY SPACE WHO MAKES LIGHT OF THE SHARED EXPERIENCES OF PEOPLE SUBJECTED TO ANY OF THE AFOREMENTIONED PREJUDICES. YOUR INABILITY TO FIND HUMOR OUTSIDE OF PEOPLE’S STRUGGLES IS NOT FUNNY AT ALL TBH, PRETTY UNORIGINAL, AND VERY UNIMPRESSIVE. THERE ARE EFFECTIVE COMEDIANS THAT GET PAID FOR THAT SHIT AND AREN’T OFFENSIVE, Y'KNOW?

IF YOU FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE BY MY DEMANDING YOU MAKE ACCOMMODATIONS FOR DISADVANTAGED FOLK, IF ASKING YOU TO MAKE THE SAME EFFORT WE HAVE TO MAKE TO SURVIVE IN A WORLD/SOCIETY/SYSTEM TAILORED TO ADVANTAGE YOU, IF YOU FEEL YOU’RE DOING A GREAT SERVICE BY ADJUSTING YOUR BEHAVIOR TO BE LESS OFFENSIVE THEN YOU CAN KICK ROCKS.

I DON’T EVEN HAVE FRIENDS FROM ALL THE AFOREMENTIONED GROUPS, BUT IT MAKES ME SICK TO THINK THAT ANYONE I CALL A “FRIEND” WOULD UNAPOLOGETICALLY CONTINUE PROBLEMATIC BEHAVIOR AND CONTRIBUTE TO MAKING SPACES UNSAFE FOR ANYONE. IRONICALLY, THIS IS WHY ALL MY CLOSEST FRIENDS ARE LONG DISTANCE. I WOULDN’T SAY I’M SURROUNDED BY BAD PEOPLE, BUT IT’S SAFE TO SAY THE ENVIRONMENT IS CONDUCIVE TO THE CONTINUATION OF BAD BEHAVIOR. THIS ESPECIALLY APPLYING TO MENTAL HEALTH AND OTHER INVISIBLE ILLNESSES OR EXPERIENCES.
