dear humans -
stop freaking out because there are other shades of humans.
stop freaking out because consenting humans are having sex with other consenting humans.
stop freaking out because humans have sex - period.
stop freaking out because humans come in many shapes.
stop freaking out because humans have hair.
stop freaking out over all this absurd bullshit.

do freak out over the fact that after thousands of years we haven't even become smart enough to not beat the shit out of each other or ourselves.

the earth is not flat.
we're all connected in a contained system.
we're revolving around our star on a tiny spec
living in a web of multiple intertwined ecological systems. this much we know.

rule 1: don't be an asshole rule 2: make sure you're not breaking rule #1

love - human me

I've grown really tired of the phrase - "they're artists, they do it for the love, not for the money" - because while this is true, it also doesn't illuminate the fact that being an artist is in fact a job, and you should get paid a living wage for doing your job....and people should do jobs they like, even love, and are good at, that way they do a better job at their job, and society reaps the benefits......I think it's more accurate to say, "they're artists, they do it because they understand it has a value so individually, socially, and culturally important, that it must happen at all costs, because the value of humanity cannot be measured in dollars"

...but I understand that doesn't quite roll of the tongue the same way....
