I’m off from work Monday and Tuesday. YAY. I wish I were staying home both days. But on Monday, I have to see my OB/GYN to continue getting birth control. No pap smear for me. 🙂 Not having sex has many, many benefits. I mean not EVER having sex. Then on Tuesday, I’m taking my dog to have his nails trimmed. After that, we are going to the park for at least an hour. I’m so glad I get to get up late. Late for me used to be 6:30 or 7. With the new meds I’m on, I could probably sleep until 8. I will try not to because I have other work I would like to get done in the morning.
People hitting on me on Twitter and Instagram (my professional accounts) is so lame. #1. How do you know I don’t have a partner? #2. How do you know my sexual orientation? For those reasons alone, I would never respond to most people saying I’m pretty or whatever. I just got a DM calling me a “pretty lady.” Let’s say I’m gay. Would he still say that? People suck. I would never respond to that. That might be okay on a dating app. But anywhere else? And if he followed me (before today) and read my stories, he would know I consider myself queer and asexual!
Do I really consider myself queer? Nah, I wouldn’t compare myself to anyone in the LGBTQ community because they have different issues. I don’t have to deal with the crap they have to deal with. Not to compare…but transgender people have it worse. Black transgender people have a life expectancy of 35! That’s sick. Our society is to blame. Just recently a transgender person was harassed at McDonald’s for going into the “wrong” bathroom. McDonald’s sent her two value meals when they found out what happened. I kid you not. Anyway, I’m not comparing DEATH with being harassed. Obviously.
I can’t imagine what’s it’s like to have no idea what bathroom is safe to go into. Plus, getting killed sucks. Something else happened recently also. A male was dating a transgender person. A bunch of people (strangers?) harassed the guy on video. He stood up for his partner on the video. A few days later, the male that stood up to those adult bullies killed himself. Ugh. 😦 I couldn’t read everything about that. I hate hearing about suicide. How must she feel now? Being transgender and now her man is gone.
Election 2020: I just found out Super Tuesday is on March 3, 2020. I will take that day off along with that Monday if possible. Staying home is a vote for Joe Biden. ROFL. I can’t deal with the Biden people anymore. Ignorance is bliss. I guess. I’m so glad Castro made the debate. He’s the tenth one in. However, others could still qualify. The cut-off date is in a few days. Hmmm, if others get in that might be useful. If 12 people qualified, they would do 6 on one night and 6 on the other. That’s fine with me. I would love less than 10 people on the stage. Policy can’t be discussed with 10 people trying to get one-liners in. Sigh.

I’m a Taurus. I’m slow. 😉 Now I have to continue ignoring these presumptuous guys on Twitter and Instagram.
Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend. 🙂
