Funny thing is, the exmormons community is by and large a bunch of fucking liberals but they get it. They understand that trans femmes at higher risk, something you all seem to not fucking care about or understand. They'll stand with that community and help protect them. You all are a bunch of fuckinh cowards.

Well, glad to see this whole thing has been pointless. Carry on. Fuck the trans femme community. Bunch of fucking hypocrite wannabe rads. Fuck you all. Glad to know you don't really care when it comes down to it. Piss up a fucking rope into a high wind.

it's been another weekend. I hope you've been doing okay. reddit may be blocked on the cult's wifi, but raddle most likely isn't. :D

it's been a stressful week for me, for more reasons than one, but I will get to see my family in person for the first time in a handful or so of months, so I'm excited about that.

is that address correct? It's a prefab home in kind of a lower middle class neighborhood. I found their fb profile and some other stuff, this guys is about 30 years old, white male, votes repub (not surprising considering where they live). but they're selling broken down and second hand shit on fb. doesn't seem like someone pulling in six figures. just want to make sure this is correct before anything else.

this really sucks and I hope you'll be okay.

have you tried marijuana? I know a couple of people with some sleep issues and they either smoke or use tabs/oil to help them sleep at night.

if you're in the usa, and you're not already doing this, maybe some of this could help alleviate some pressure? if there's something else you feel you could use to help, don't hesitate to ask and there's a bunch of us here that can try to help scrounge up resources and options for you.

I know you didn't ask and I apologize if I'm overstepping in offering this.

no they don't, they talk about how their graduates who didn't go to grad school have a 90% employment rate...and don't mention that they work at a bank, in a large corporation or doing something else that has zero physics involved.

I know a person who worked at CERN on one of the ATLAS projects for their phd. they now work at a coffee shop, just got tired of all the bullshit. physics is really interesting but unless you're willing to do medical physics, for example, which is one of the less sexy areas, it's going to be a bumpy fucking road.

The average gps for physics majors is around 2.5 but that won't get you in graduate school. A physics degree will get you a job but it won't be doing physics most likely. Those kinds jobs usually want someone with an engineering degree. I've watched friends go through this more than a few times.

I would maybe find a job or two that you think you might like and talk to them honestly about what they look for in the person they hire. There are a ton of people with physics degrees right now and the market is flooded. At my small unknown undergrad college, there were over 500 PhDs that applied for the one teaching position they had open. Just something to think about.

Because I tend to react poorly to your ignorance, I'm not going to engage with you further as I don't want a repeat of what happened before (and which I'm still sorry I did and was a part of) and hope that you can consider what others outside yourself experience and understand that their lives and experiences are just as valid as your own. Best of luck to you. This is me disengaging from you here. Cheers.

this has more to do with ignoring particularly the voices of our trans femmes and whether this is not only a safe place for them but whether people actually stand on the same side as them and are willing to fight for and with them. as toast already mentioned in another thread by n_n which is about this and not some other shit, gladra and clouds (and others) have gone over this in great detail and on the former's one can still see many of their comments, which have been ignored. again. and again. and again. and again. and again. and... bandaids can't fix a wound that needs stitches or amputation.
