You know people make feel like I don’t know what I am talking about as if I haven’t been through domestic abuse or seen other people that I care about go through an abusive relationship. Most people think abuse is just physical but there is more than just physical abuse. Here are 9 signs of an abusive or unhealthy relationship. Please note that you don’t have to go through all nine a relationship is abusive if only one of these is happening.

Lying on or allowing someone to be lied on or falsely accusing someone of something they didn’t do…


So on TikTok pups are outraged that a woman sat there and stated people should take spray bottles to pups at pride events but stayed silent when I got my life threatened. Talk about hypocrisy but that’s not what I’m going to talk about. While I do not condone violence or assault, I do want to talk about is the disrespect of boundaries.

The thing is that just because BDSM and kink are part of LGBTQ+ history doesn’t make it strictly an LGBTQ+ thing, same with pup play. There are straight people who do BDSM, kink and pup play too…


The Pup Pride Flag used by the pup community

Now back in February I wrote about how Liam Bennett had people threatening to take me out over his relationship with his partner, Jonathan Hughes, due to Liam lying on me cause of his relationship.

Well, now I’ve decided to share some of the things said to me by pups in the pup community that are emotionally abusive and manipulative.


I was reading an article by Sharon Martin called Emotional Invalidation: A Form of Emotional Abuse and in the article Ms. Martin points out a few things that I tend to feel have happened to me that are emotional invalidation and abuse that either is intentional or unintentional.

Now in her article Ms. Martin states:

Other times, emotional invalidation is a form of manipulation and an attempt to make you question your feelings and experiences. A pattern of invalidation is a form of emotional abuse or gaslighting. it’s a denial of you or your experience. It implies that you’re wrong…


folklore album cover © & ℗ Taylor Swift

Since Taylor Swift won Album of the Year for folklore at the 63rd GRAMMYs awards, making her the first female artist to win three Album of the Year GRAMMYs, I have decided to write a review on one of my favorite songs from the folklore album entitled “this is me trying”. I am going to break down the song by verses/bridge and choruses and explain the topic of each one and give my own personal opinion on them. So let’s begin.

I’ve been having a hard time adjusting
I had the shiniest wheels, now they’re rusting
I didn’t know if you’d care…


If anyone needs counseling it's the parents who are having outrage and the counselors need to tell those parents that their beliefs are ignorant and wrong and that they are abusing their children teaching them to hate people who are different. That's what needs to go on and if the parents don't like it well then maybe there needs to be some more severe consequences cause I'm honestly getting sick of people who can't keep their ignorant beliefs in the privacy of their homes and who can't teach their child to respect other people.


The hypocrisy in the LGBT+ community really needs to stop. As the years go on and more and more happens to me, I have started to feel like an outsider to the community I have spent my life trying to defend. The fact is the LGBT+ community is full of complete hypocrisy. Hypocrisy according to Webster’s means

a feigning to be what one is not or to believe what one does not : behavior that contradicts what one claims to believe or feel

Now the LGBT+ community claims itself as a community that is accepting of others but just like…


So today I ended up having a long talk with my mom about things and what we discussed actually shocked and surprised me. So we ended up discussing how society tries and control people and that the “social norm” seems to be to tell people to go and seek psychiatric help and even she agreed that therapy cannot fix or help everything. Like what happened with my brother and what my father did to her. …


And out of respect I have changed that for you in my article to say transfolk as I do have a huge respect for the trans community. Thank you for you comment btw, it is much appreciated and I totally agree with everything you have said.


“SuperStraight”, also known as “SS”, pride flag with the colors of black and orange similar to the logo of Pornhub.

Now I am going to share my thoughts on this whole “SuperStraight” movement and it may come off as offensive to some but again these are my own personal thoughts.

First and foremost, the movement is completely transphobic as it has connections to Neo Nazi’s (thanks to James Finn for the source.) And to want to consider themselves part of the LGBT+ community when they aren’t oppressed like LGBTQ+ also does not help them at all.

That being said there is a problem going on in the LGBT+ community and the straight community that is very disturbing. Falsely accusing people…
