my family: but WHY do you want to leave texas?

me internally: because it’s becoming fundamentally more dangerous for lgbt people, especially trans people, and people with uteri. the shit-awful governor that this hell state refuses to remove from office is monstrous to a degree only rivaled by that fucker in florida, and his combination of greed, malice, and incompetence has gotten people killed. while i do not resent those who lack the means to leave and respect those that are still willing to fight for a better future for the state they call home, i fucking hate this place and i DO have the opportunity to move somewhere else, thank god.

me, externally: the weather is nicer in minnesota.
