Some people love to shut down people who talk about trans and intersex issues by saying that they’re “only 1% of the population” and thus can be ignored since they “aren’t statistically significant enough.”

By that logic, we can now systematically ignore:

  • Redheads
  • The entire state of Rhode Island
  • Anyone who makes over $500,000 a year
  • Pacific Islanders
  • Australia

I was tagged by wildedear to do this five things about me post. Here it goes.

1. I spend a ridiculous amount of time searching for the perfect cruise to go on and then normally get crazy excited about it and call brainsbootynallbusiness and/or thegirlwhoplaysgod to see if she’ll go with me and then we both realize it’s too expensive and/or 5 months long and that’s crazy. This happens at least four times per week.

2. I love to swim. I swim almost every day. I feel like I was a mermaid in a past life.

3. I had gastric sleeve surgery in March 2014 and have lost 113 pounds which I’m very proud of.

4. I really love to cook. It relaxes me and it find it really satisfying.

5. I think spongebob is fucking hilarious.

I will tag brainsbootynallbusiness
