The play reading went great! My parents even listened in and were supportive. I was confused and suspicious, but I tried to just enjoy it.
Last night my dad told me that, even though he has a daughter who is way out in the atmosphere, he still thought women’s rights and gay rights are a distraction from the anti-racism work that needs to be done.
And, y’all, I did not give a shit.
I don’t think that’s progress or anything. I mean, I suspect I’ll be back in a deep funk at some point and the shit he says to me will hurt me.
But not today. Because I am also trying to be anti-racist. I can try to be better about all the things!
