Please give these people some business and support if you're near Somerville. This is vile.
The reason "gifted kids" are so frequently fucked up is because being told over and over again that one is innately better than the other kids engenders partial traits of clinical narcissism in a person. Often these will include a chaotic boom and bust relationship with self-esteem and desire for praise. It has nothing to do with the actuality of being "smart" it's just toxic socialization.
Have a good day!
trans life mention jkr
and like.. i think a lot about the scene in Pose where Angel tells the christmas story where as a kid she stole red pumps from the department store and tried to smuggle them home in front of her parents.
that seems incredibly natural to me, hitting a lot of similar notes, and i dont think is an uncommon aspect to trans girls' closeted lives.
I noticed it turned up as a trope again with JKR's "not trans" serial killer and the guardian ended up defending the book by pointing to the fact the killer steals / hides women's clothing/jewelry to wear and worship as evidence of his definitely an evil one and not at all anything to do with trans.
Like you literally just described a closeted trans woman's behaviour and hung "because he murders women" to the end of it.

Ireland's lacrosse team withdrew from an international tournament to give their slot to the Iroquois National's team to play in the tournament instead.
Lacrosse, as you may or may not know, began as a ceremonial sport played by Native American and First Nations tribes (I believe it belonged largely to the Haudenosaunee/ Iroquois Confederacy), and was at one time deeply spiritual but has been soundly ripped away from its roots and its people.
"Its simply the right thing to do," they say.
Fuck. Yes. I hope they win.
