Rauner bill approvals include one making birth certificate changes easier for transgender people – Chicago Tribune

Rauner bill approvals include one making birth certificate changes easier for transgender people – Chicago Tribune:

“Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner on Friday signed into law measures to ban the so-called gay panic defense in criminal proceedings and make it easier for transgender people to change the sex listed on their birth certificates, but he vetoed a bill that bars potential employers from asking job applicants about their previous salary.”

Down the Rabbit Hole 

It’s after 10PM and I have no idea what to write. All day… all week really, I’ve done everything I could to distract myself, to keep the shadows at bay. To drown out the voices whispering in the back of my mind.

It’s worked well enough I can still function but I know this is a temporary solution at best.

Of course there isn’t much I can add, I’ve walked this path for far too long and if you have been following for very long, then you’ve heard it all before. If by some chance you’ve come to the party late, you can browse through the archives. Whatever I could say now I have said at some point in the past.

I don’t know what I’m going to do from here. I so much want to disappear, to go silent and disappear, and yet, I don’t think I can, not completely any way.

And so, I once again find myself in limbo. Without a plan, without so much as a dream to follow.

I will try to continue to post something each day as I have done for so long, but I can promise nothing more.

Please be good to one another.
