I broke it to Toni yesterday that I am leaving Winnipeg. She took it well. I mentally feel like I am in an in-between. I am aiming to have all my ducks in a row by Monday. I still have to tell my mother. I’ve only shared this news with three people. I am calling this move a social experiment. I’m arriving in a new town with nothing and I’m going to see if systemic racism is going to stop me from pursuing my aspirations in life. Yes, I’m being facetious. I’m going grind and get my privilege from making good choices.

Melbourne Australia just passed a law making it illegal to discuss your sexual assault. California passed a law that will let adult men who sleep with minors dodge a direct sex offender registration. What even is 2020? The California law reminds me of how Queer as Folk got away with a storyline about statutory rape. Then again, so did Friends.

Anyway, I should move on with my day. ta
