White knights and virtue signallers ahoy at the moment.

Tip from non-Caucasian queer woman: if you’re going to be an ally be careful your behaviour does not cause more damage or brings about the opposite effect.

Do not, under the guise of being an ally, effectively pull an entire minority into one homogeneous lump in your call-out of someone.

Sometimes a word just that, a word. There is no battle to be fought here.

Do not seize the day. This will startle the day and may cause it to become aggressive and give you a nasty bite.

Instead approach the day calmly without making eye contact, pet it gently, and slowly enfold it in a careful embrace

If the day shows any signs of resistance to being engaged with, it is likely to turn on you. Back off and return to bed.

Parental units have been safely dropped off at the airport. Did not realise the airport has changed its parking and road layout. That was interesting.

Travelling on public transport in the dark to the sticks contains a lot of “where the hell am I?”
