Half my life ago, I started using Blue as my name in certain communities. I'm a compartmentalizer so I am careful about how I introduce myself, but lately the "non-binary people name themselves by throwing a dictionary in a blender" meme is making me feel 17 years worth of attacked and I'm thinking maybe I should go by Blue more?

I've said before that I'm reluctant to change my name just because of how Regina is gendered, but I decided I was Blue several years before I was out to myself.

Ronnie Spector: ‘I love #MeToo and Time’s Up – because men’s time is up’ (CW abuse mention in the link)

“When I was making my hit records, my ex was always ‘the genius’ and you felt like: ‘Well, who am I?’ You felt that small. I’m so glad I’m still on this Earth to see women going out there and saying: ‘You can be fabulous like me, you can do anything.’”

Poetry, alcohol 

It was at a wine party—
I lay in a drowse, knowing it not.
The blown flowers fell and filled my lap.
When I arose, still drunken,
The birds had all gone to their nests,
And there remained but few of my comrades.
I went along the river—alone in the moonlight.
