i will not tire of you.

Shards of pain:
My god mother used to live in Zhi Hui's share house and she had a dog (maybe even a bit like Cinnamon). This both breaks and heals my heart...our uni had a Rad Sex & Consent Week last semester and yesterday in a haze of dissociation I wrote in my diary: consent is not rad - it's a legal requirement!...my joint pain has flared again (toes, ankles, wrists, fingers) and I forgot how painful, exhausting, frustrating and disabling physical pain can be...my eyes are too sore to write more than a few lines today. I'm sorry.

Your body
Hurts me as the world hurts God.

Rad stands for Radical. As in Radical Sex. As in revolutionary. I'm not saying your feelings are invalid (they are totally legit and real and here) but the rad isn't there about consent. It's there for the way that we view sex. As in non-shaming towards women, and poc, and LGBTQIA+ friendly.


But you're right. I hate it when people say "consent is sexy" like fuck off. No its not. Its human decency.
