My mother's crying could be heard throughout the old colonial house. Our old car sped out the driveway, and it was so late at night. My 10 yr old feet were freezing as I trotted across the hardwood to the top of the stairs and opened the door. My uncle stood there at the bottom of the… Continue reading Momma Cried
Comments, Posts, Replies, etc....here, there and everywhere. We post little tidbits, our daily experiences, incidents we have watched or participated in somewhere along the line, etc. And directly under those posts, on every social platform website that I know of, is a place where readers can leave "comments" and generally "like" the post.

This blog is GREAT at putting the whole ball of wax into very understandable perspective!!! ~MainelyButch

Instead of creating a chain of effort, we spend our time stabbing each other in the back, screaming at…

I've been wrestling my demons like mad lately. Depression, anxiety, internal strife...the perpetual circle that it has become for me.

I also have serious ADHD that plays into it, which I really have to discuss with my… Continue reading My Butch Social Needs…and Denied Gender Choice
