Don’t be a dick
Kindness and respect are vitally important. Just as important is this — I believe in treating people with the respect that they have earned, which means people acting like dicks will be dealt with firmly and swiftly.
Hell yes means yes
I operate in a consent culture: your choices are yours alone, and I will not engage in tactics that remove choice or create the illusion that no other choices are available to you.
I believe strongly in pursuing self-knowledge through the means available to you at any given time. My path is my own, and I will always encourage you to find yours and pursue it to your betterment.
Keep your word
Everything I say should be truthful, and every promise I make should be kept. When I do not keep my word, I should attempt to make it right without reasons or excuses.
None of us are free until all of us are free
I am learning the lessons that come with the painful and difficult work of decolonizing myself and of learning how to embody and work for abolition in my community. I want to engage in work that is accessible, that can be paid for with resources that don’t leave you empty. We have to work hard to learn how to live in love and freedom.
Do it right or not at all
Don’t start a thing unless you know you can finish it. Don’t say yes to something you cannot do. Don’t leave work undone. Prepare for finishing strongly and well by looking at all angles ahead of time, and making the best possible plans.
