About Me

I've come to learn that everyone has limits when it comes to tolerance. On a scale from 1 to 10, the tolerance of some might be at a 10. Another person, maybe only a one. And there may even be some who's tolerance goes a little beyond a 10. But invariably...even that person has a cut-off point and maybe just hasn't reach it yet.

How did I come to this belief? Easy. All I had to do was look around me at people who are still, or were once discriminated against. Disliked for their religion, or their race, their nationality or their skin colour. These very same people seem to conveniently forget or dismiss how they've been treated...and then in turn treat GLBT people as something to be reviled. Especially transpeople.

Empathy seems only to exist among those of one's own kind, as long as one of that kind is not different...

Growing up, I remember hearing people say that one's life was planned out before one was born. Pretty plucked up that, not only did I have no say in what path I would follow...I was put on a path to hell with few detours, fewer alternate routes, and no places of sanctuary.

There is a direct correlation between calories and taste: More calories= better, more taste, more satisfying. Fewer calories= flavourless and lending to binging for satisfaction. And fat makes EVERYthing taste good!! --DML/2013

Don't presume that I might share the dessert that I ordered, bringing two forks (or spoons) with it. If I was gonna share, I'd have asked you to bring an extra plate! --DML/2014
