I haven't much to say about myself. Childfree, nonsmoker (but 420-friendly--I just hate tobacco smoking), GenX, lesbian, Doctor Who fan since about 1983. I like to do active things as often as I can. I have narcolepsy. I'm sure I'll update with more.

memorylikeasieve comments on Jun 23, 2018:
Segregation makes it sound like the racial separation was imposed upon them by an outside source, but damned if I can think of a better word. I've noticed it too, but I figure it's because like attract like and sometimes minorities want to have their space without white people muscling in on it. I just operate on the assumption that I'm not allowed in there unless invited and move along. Especially when it comes to hair. Black hair needs different treatment than other kinds of hair and someone who is well-versed in one kind but not the other may accidentally do harm. Mine's not typical white hair, so I go to places that have a mix of races and ethnicities.

Can we quite the “White Privilege” nonsense? I am a white man who has a fairly liberal world ...
memorylikeasieve comments on Jun 23, 2018:
I've thought about this for a while and I think the crux of the objection to being told one has 'white privelige' lies in the interpretation of the word 'privelige' itself. All too often it's associated with life being handed to one on a silver platter. So one then thinks that they're being told that their lives are a walk in the park and they should shut up and never complain because someone somewhere has it worse. That's where the whole 'I'm literally starving, where's that white privilege you keep banging on about' response comes from. I think we should work on changing the connotations of the word. Stop associating it with the easy life.

I found out pretty early on that jobs don't just grow on trees, that University can put a person in insurmountable debt, and that ends rarely meet.

memorylikeasieve comments on Jun 18, 2018:
I often think we're getting offended by maybe not 'the wrong things' but definitely quite often by things that cannot be changed quickly, if at all. There's a lot of demanding instant change of human nature, which just doesn't happen in reality. Then there are people who seem to hunt for offence in everything and it becomes a 'Boy Who Cried Wolf' situation, hurting the very cause they're fighting for. Personally, if someone uses the word 'microaggressions' sincerely I take whatever else they say with several grains of salt.

memorylikeasieve comments on Jun 18, 2018:
Mine changes in that regard when I move to new places, too. For the first 25 years of my life, I was very isolated. I wasn't allowed to leave the house on my own save for school or work. I could go places with my brother, but he was always a severe introvert and thus never wanted to go anywhere. The house was in an exceedingly difficult to find location, and in the days before GPS it was more trouble than it was worth for anyone to drive there. I scarcely had any social contact and, as an extrovert that nearly drove me mad. When I moved to Minnesota I scarcely knew anyone and had to go through what was essentially a second adolescence, learning a lot of things I had no opportunity to learn before, in a short period of time. I lived there for 15 years and gathered quite a circle of friends, but I had to leave Minnesota as I knew one more 70-below winter would land me in a psych ward. I'm in Washington state, now, and have been for three years. I'm starting over again with expanding my social circle, and it's been difficult, but at least it's going a lot more quickly this time. I'm not sure where I'm going with this other than to share my story. ?
