The Year of Big Questions

"Don’t eat meat. Be as passionate as you can all the time. Work for social justice. Cuddle your beloved more than seems reasonable. Write. Give money to charity as often as you can, and give a little more than you’re comfortable giving. Remember the homeless always and everywhere. Thank whatever God you worship for your inestimable good luck in being loved, and if you are not loved, love someone as best you can.”

..people like Jesus and Paul were not executed for saying, “Love one another.” They were killed because their understanding of love meant more than being compassionate towards individuals, although it did include that. It also meant standing against the domination systems that rule their world, and collaborating with the Spirit in the creation of a new way of life that stood in contrast to the normalcy of the wisdom of this world. Love and justice go together. Justice without love can be brutal and love without justice can be banal. Love is the heart of justice and justice is the social form of love.

i love the term “partners”
are we dating?
are we robbing a bank?
do we run a legal firm?
are we the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies and are members of an elite squad known as the special victims unit?
who knows.

but let’s be real, one of my few difficult goals in law school is to have one of the social justice law boys use the pickup line “I only want to make partner with you”

soulmate au where only your soulmate can kill you

Oh

Sucks to be the first person who figured that out.

"Come love, let’s play!  I’ll hit you over the head the way I safely do all my friends!"

EXCEPT THEN YOU KILL THE PERSON.

Oh god imagine a society where finding the person you love the most intensely and intimately means becoming suddenly terrifyingly vulnerable.  HOW FUCKED UP WOULD THAT BE?  I mean we get all upset about breakups and we can get killed by anyone.

Alternative:
You can live forever with your soulmate for as long as you continue to love each other.
But once you’ve found your soulmate murder is the only way out.
Either you have to kill them or convince them to kill you.
The 200 year old woman who has to kill her 300 year old wife because she suffered an accident and no longer has a high quality of life.

What the fuck is wrong with you people.  (but actually this is amazing)

dear people who know that i shoplifted all the time when i was Mike Browns age and a little older and tell me all the time that I’m a good person, are you even trying to conceal your racism when you defend his murder to me?

Sometimes I’ll read some trans-exclusionary radfem bullshit and I’ll think about my baby sister and how happy I am she’s in my life and how happy I am she’s my sister and what a strong fabulous amazing woman she is and then I cry that anyone could imagine her being harmful to any movement for women just because we were wrong about her gender for a while.
