Failed when it mattered

I'm just going to be blunt: fuck the NHL. 
There's been a few stories recently about teams or players not wearing pride themed equipment for the warmup during team Pride nights because of whatever excuse players want to manufacture. Lot's of "oh well" platitudes from the teams and the league, giving them a pass, but let's be clear: the NHL didn't have the spine to stand up when it mattered most.

There's no allyship when you collapse when the situation is tough. The NHL really just wanted to look good with the LGBTQ+ community, they didn't want to actually support it. They are the epitome of rainbow capitalism. 

Xtra* Magazine has a great article that sums it beautifully: The NHL’s commitment to diversity doesn’t extend to trans people.

So, basically, fuck the NHL. No interest in them anymore.

Finally did it!

I hemmed and hawed over getting a breast augmentation for a while now, but last summer's bikini shopping pushed me over the edge.

Two months!

Time flies! I wouldn't necessarily say "when you are having fun" with that, but it's actually been pretty good, especially as the weather is getting better!
