I would like it noted that the entire weekend, I refrained from tactless "Happy Zombie Jesus Day" posts on the Internet. Oooh, or "Happy Ostara/Eostre, you theiving motherfuckers," posts.

I'm a goddamn hero.

Oh, funny thing: So, nilchance and I live with my family (which consists of my elderly father, and my sister S.). My father has always been pretty liberal--his best friend was an African-American man, from the early sixties on. Maryland is many wonderful things, but it is still below the Mason Dixon line, and in some ways, that still shows. But in the past, his liberalness was quiet. He was a prettty good ally. Didn't stand for racist shit being said in front of him, though like most of his generation, he missed the less obvious stuff, and to this day still has a mansplaining issue.

On the other hand, when I nervously came out to him, he nodded and said "Yeah, I thought so," and quietly welcomed nilchance into the family, and later (by about 1 month) into our home.

Now though, he is SO fucking pissed about the Orange Asshole in the White House, and at all the shit he's doing. I'm pretty sure if he could physically do it, he'd be marching. Instead, he calls senators and signs petitions, and calls AARP to tell them to lobby against Trump's shit. And he talks about how xenophobic things have gotten. Except, best part--Dad's a little hard of hearing, and a little dyslexic.

So, he calls it "oxenophobic." Yes. Afraid of oxen. It is the cutest damn thing.
