A Retraction

I looked at this blog tonight for the first time in years. 

A lot has changed since then. I grew up, finished being homeschooled, went to university and moved out of my parents' home. I also stopped being a Christian and realized that I'm queer.

There's a lot in this blog that I disagree with or am ashamed of now. I don't know what for sure - I haven't wanted to read through all the old posts to find out. I do know that my past self was dealing with a lot of internalized misogyny and homophobia and was very prejudiced in many areas. I was working within the narrow worldview I was raised and I desperately wanted to make friends and fit in.

For everything I said that did perpetuate harmful beliefs, I am sorry. 

This blog will probably stay up for now but I didn't want to leave it without a sort of disclaimer and apology. I don't know if any of the old friends I made here will see this. But, if you do, I just want to say that, despite all this, I did really enjoy our time together and please reach out if you want to talk. 

Either way, I wish you all the best.
