Let it go - the
smashed word broken
open vow or
the oath cracked length
wise - let it go it
was sworn to
go

let them go - the
truthful liars and
the false fair friends
and the “boths” and
“neithers” - you must let them go they
were born
to go

let all go - the
big small middling
tall bigger really
the biggest and all
things - let all go
dear

so comes love.”

instead of “I love you no matter what sexuality/race/gender you are!”

try “I love you and will celebrate your identity with you!”

There’s already soft indent,

and you rebook nightly for the fun of it,

than buy a month like a sap

selling vacuums in the same town. 

I wouldn’t want you that way, anyway.

There’s already a roof and electricity and

it’s not new. Nothing is, and still I know and fail

to care. Squeezing fingers on four hands,

hoping our 3rd world carnival arms will hold,

thrilled by the centrifugal pull in our guts—

a headier brew than what we thought 

we threw in the pot. 

Don’t let go. Don’t slow down.

im a wimp when it comes to waxing my legs so i figured out a way to do it.

My home brazillians just got a lot more fun. “Fun”? Sure, fun.

Flying Solo: This 92-Year-Old Transgender Widow Is Fighting To Be Treated Like Any Other Widow

After serving as a pilot during WWII, Robina Asti transitioned to living as a woman in the 1970s.



youtube.com


Now 92 years old, she fondly remembers spending time over the Pacific during World War II. She was only 21 at the time.
Getting her pilot’s license at just 18, Robina became a commercial pilot and flight instructor.




youtube.com


In 1976, she decided to begin living as a woman “in body, soul, and mind.” The prejudice against her at that time was extraordinary.







Working as a vice president of a mutual fund, she would go to work in men’s clothing and then change in the evenings.
“It was quite burdensome, and I knew it would never be accepted then. So I quit and decided I had to live and work as a woman.”



youtube.com


She legally changed the sex on her pilot’s license, her driver’s license, and obtained a U.S. passport as a woman. For Robina, it was a complete rebirth.



youtube.com


She soon met Norwood Patton, the man who would one day become her husband.






When things became serious, Robina knew she would have to tell Norwood about her transition.






Less than a week later, Norwood came back.

youtube.com


Every month, Norwood would ask for her hand in marriage. Every month, she would refuse.



youtube.com


Finally in 2004, Robina married her longtime sweetheart in a small ceremony in an airplane hangar in Orange County, N.Y.
“It was, without a doubt, the finest time in my life.”



youtube.com


Eight years later, Norwood passed away at the age of 97.



youtube.com


After his passing, Robina applied for survivor benefits with the SSA. She was denied after it was determined she was “legally male” at the time of their marriage — despite all the legal documents she had in her possession.



youtube.com


“I am so insulted that the Social Security Administration refused to recognize me as a woman and treated my marriage to Norwood in such a disrespectful way.”



youtube.com


In June 2013, Lambda Legal filed a request for reconsideration on Robina’s behalf. After more than six months, there is still no word from the Social Security Administration.







She hopes that her case is a success, not for the money, but for “the act of humanity which is necessary here.”







I can’t handle it. I can’t. It’s already too much to see my young, healthy, hard-working, hard-loving trans peers be discriminated against by every fucking institution/bureaucracy they have to interact with. But a sweet old lady who just wants to live her life in peace…I just….I CAN’T ANYMORE, YOU GUYS.
