this is happening

[CN: violence, racism, kind of dark even for me sorry in advance]

I've been up for the past thirty minutes chronicling, analyzing, and commentating upon everything that is going on in Ferguson right now. For more info on what's happening there and to read my detailed pundit log go here. I've posted the highlights below as well.

serious interlude

I am not feeling very humorous right now.

I just want to make sure that you all know that I do not have the authority to speak to other people's experiences of mental illness, including your own. I do not have the authority to say "we" when I talk about how I experience my own illnesses. You may identify with what I have to say or you may not, but here is what is key:

It is not hopeless. No one is a lost cause. Things can and will and do get better.

Quote of the Fuckllennium

[CN: Apparently non-ironic verbal abuse]

Here is a brilliant quote from KittieKit defending Shakestown in the comment section of another blog. Go read this now. I couldn't have said it better myself.
I'm serious. Are you a fucking STUPID SHIT FOR MIND piece of REFUSE who can't grasp the fact that our community is constructed around creating a PROTECTED SAFE SPACE, you FUCKING ASSHOLE?
FUCKING NO ONE has responded to my fucking reasoned requests for NUANCED DISCUSSION. I'm trying to have an intelligent conversation with you, you FUCKSHITHEAD. Take your asinine, immature comments and FUCK OFF.
Love you, KittieKit. Thanks for representing!
