trachim-b replied to your post “yo I was curious about the fluoride thing so I did a quick bit of research and toothpaste has had warnings on it in the US for a long time b/c swallowing large, concentrated amounts of it can be poisonous and thats why kids aren’t supposed to eat toothpaste. But a lot of US towns do have fluoride in their water but not enough to be harmful”

there’s also the whole individual liberty aspect - should I be forced to ingest it through public water supply even if it’s healthy? Does everyone have the right to fluoridated water? etc. food for thought right here

or should I say FLUORIDE for thought and it totes cool u published it :)

It is definitely something to think about—are there water filters available that remove fluoride? Can I keep my teeth healthy in another way without it either being forced upon me or potentially endangering myself or others? What’s the point in adding fluoride to the water if it’s potentially harmful, even if the benefits (until now) seemed to outweigh the risks?

YA Lit Meme[1/9] quotes

'Augustus Waters talked so much that he'd interrupt you at his own funeral.And he was pretentious: Sweet Jesus Christ that kid never took a piss without pondering the abundant metaphorical resonances of human waste production. And he was vain: I do not believe I have ever met a more physically attractive person who was more acutely aware of his own physical attractiveness. But I will say this: when scientists of the future show up at my house with robot eyes and they tell me to try them on, I will tell the scientists to screw off because I do not want to see a world without him.

so this is a thing

a bunch of moms are making letters+audio recordings of affirming, validating letters to queer/trans people who don’t get that kind of support from their moms

i would say more about it but

im kind of busy in this puddle of tears on the floor so

In case any of my followers don’t have this kind of support from home…

my mom did this and if you need an honourary mother i promise she would be happy to talk to you

But, the Hebrew word, the word timshel - ‘Thou mayest’ - that gives a choice.  It might be the most important word int he world.  That says the way is open. That throws it right back on a man.  For if ‘Thou mayest’ - it is also true that ‘Thou mayest not’.  Don’t you see?

Do you take pride in your hurt? Does it make you seem large and tragic? Well, think about it, .maybe you’re playing a part on a great stage with only yourself as audience.
