There are bad things going on in this country. I hate that people are passing laws to permit discrimination. It’s so very wrong. Why do people have to be such fucking assholes?

J’espère que mon dernier billet ne vous a pas trop déprimé. Quand je travaillais à l’abattoir, j’étais en mode survie, mais au moins ça m’avait permis de trouver refuge dans l’écriture, une passion à laquelle je me suis accroché.
