Some Ground Rules:

- This blog is free of all racist, ableist, sexist, fatphobic, queerphobic, and transphobic shit and I will tolerate no one who brings these things into my space

- I don't mind answering questions or asks about social justice topics but please remember that I am not here specifically to educate you or anybody else

- I will gladly tag all of my posts if anybody feels triggered or uncomfortable by what I blog but again please remember that this is my blog and I will always put my own safety and mental health first

- This is my space and if you respect me then I will respect you. Simple as that.

Let's keep it positive folks! : )
