What would be anti-diversity is letting bigots air their opinions, that's why we're strict. Such a tolerance for bullshit would signal to POC, trans people, women, ect that they are unsafe here and that we have no regard for their voices. We'd rather they feel safe than someone get to freely spout bigoted, wrong beliefs.

You've literally been ignoring everything people here have said to you haven't you? They've told you we consider racism more complex than a dictionary definition. You're gonna have a bad time here if you keep ignoring our arguments and putting your fingers in your ears.

Berets are cool, though.

Right now I'm wearing a crucifix with big ankh earrings and it feels like too much. Also I have a sheer, peacock patterned shirt that is absolutely tacky but I love it in its ugliness.

My worst choices happened in middle school, though, which we don't talk about because I burned all those pictures.

My mom was a single mother with two kids by 19 and had to work two or three jobs while going to nursing school to support us. We were poor enough that, at times, all we had to eat was cereal and mom went hungry so me and my sibling would have enough to eat. We lived this way until I was about 5 or 6, so I don't really remember much of it. My mom was working a regular job by that time, so we were much more stable.

We lived a pretty middle class life after that, although there were some (and occasionally still are) hard times, like this past December when we almost lost our house. Saving money is pretty tough when you started out with hardly nothing. You don't get too much of a chance to catch up. I'm starting out better than my mom did in some ways, so I don't think things will be too hard for me once I'm able to get a non-dead-end job.

A few things I've learned about apologizing:

  1. Exclude the word "but", it's a sign you're about to try to justify what you did.

  2. Don't give an explanation unless asked. Hopefully you aren't apologizing just to get yourself out of trouble, and if an explanation immediately follows your apology it comes off as just trying to dig yourself out of a hole and nothing else.

  3. Tell the person it won't happen again and that you'll do better, or that you'll at least put in your best effort to prevent it from happening again. Actually mean this or don't bother.

  4. Don't ask for forgiveness. This one is just a personal preference of mine, but when people ask for forgiveness it feels like putting pressure on someone to do something they aren't obligated to do. It's just kind of manipulative, imo. If it's a forgiveable offense, they'll do so when they're ready.

Luckily it's mostly cleared up, but a week ago I had this weird swelling inside of one of my nostrils that was extremely painful. Even if I lightly touched the outside of that side of my nose there would be a sharp pain. I DuckDuckGo'd it and apparently if you have an infection in your nose it can go right up to the brain and kill you. Still didn't go because I already have a $300 doctor's bill to pay off.
