According to this chart I’m a homosexual man.
These are just some of the many ways members of the LGBT community identify themselves in a beautiful photo series from San Francisco-based photographer Sarah Deragon.
Deragon’s “The Identity Project” has taken her around the country as she “seeks to explore the labels we choose to identify with when defining our gender and sexuality.” Her portraits show the amazing diversity and vibance of a queer community that for too long has been defined by outsiders.
I love this project SO HARD.
oh man so I am pretty staunchly NOT in favor of guns at all
but the past few days of having to be utterly alone in my apartment and without my partner nearby has convinced me that if I wind up living on my own (which I will in about a year and a half likely), I need to own either a small hand gun or a taser gun of some sort for my own mental security
I would opt for a small knife of some sort rather than a gun but that’s not really something I feel safe having around
also I need a front door that has double locks, and a latch, because a single deadbolt and no knob lock does not do it
(I’m so jumpy and my apartment is full of weird sounds… I’ve actually been lugging around a tequila bottle just in case because that’s the thing I’ve got that would be the easiest to swing but do the most damage if someone entered the apartment)
I’d strongly advice against the knife, because if you’re not expertly trained the attacker will more likely be able to use it against you.
Do the sharpie test - get a fresh friend and attack him with a sharpie - it’s his job to wrestle and use it against you - now count all the time he got sharpie marks and all the time you got sharpie marks - those are all potentially fatal knife wounds. Remember a knife wound doesn’t have to be in the chest to be fatal. It’s very easy to bleed out before help arrives, and for tendons and arteries to be severed in arms and legs. Not super fun surviving if you lose the use of your limbs as well.
I do not have much experience with guns since I live in Denmark, except my father was a lieutenant in the US Army and a gun instructor for the military here in Denmark when he come home, and still he managed to shoot himself in the foot once.
Remember Chekov’s law - if a gun is introduced it has to be fired before the play ends.
Consider if you feel prepared to potentially kill a person for real.
Otherwise I’d personally choose the tazer og pepperspray. If I had any way of obtaining them in Denmark I’d do it in a heartbeat for my personal safety, disregarding the law.
An additional skill to practice if you choose tazer or pepperspray could be how to tie a person up effectively. That way you’d be able to first knock an attacker out and then incapacitate them until police arrives.
I hope you don’t mind me adding my personal thoughts, because it’s a subject I’ve been thinking a lot about as well.
Guh, flawless. Non-Westernised interpretations of the steampunk genre FTW.
