Hello, lovelies! ❤️ I’m 𝗥𝗮𝘇𝗶𝗲𝗹, or 𝗥𝗮𝘇 for short. I’m a 25-year-old black trans man (he/him) from the United States, living with my monogamous boyfriend in a quaint little flat somewhere in New York City. Currently, I’m in graduate school for Information Science. I am:
I have a perpetual rotating list of interests. Creatures that go bump in the night, like #demons and #vampires and #werewolves, have a special place in my heart. I love to talk about religion, chiefly Christianity, but I’m no believer – I’m a Satanist who loves the aesthetics and the tropes and all the ways you can shoehorn them into #fantasy and #horror.
I’m similarly verbose about (American) LGBTQ history, Greek mythology, and instant #photography.
Don’t hesitate to talk to me, I don’t bite*.
*Unless you’re going to mansplain in my mentions. Please do not.

I have an 🌸official🌸 alt-fursona/fursona now!
Meet Dahl, the rose dalmatian. Dahl is an archivist and amateur pianist living in the big city™. He is 100% bougie, 100% crybaby, and 100% sleepy, in that order. Despite the ease with which he navigates city living, he is quiet and shy, preferring to reach his weekly clownery quota online than face-to-face.

On this account, you will come across words like "faggot", "fairy", "flamer", "pansy", and sometimes "sissy" (not the fetish). I am a gay man aware of the history of these pejoratives; nonetheless, I find them empowering and reaffirming, and you deserve no more explanation than that. Each time these words appear, the toot will be unlisted, or follower locked. You can boost the associated toot if you wish.
But I want to be upfront about this: 𝗜 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗻 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗺.
Do not ask, because the answer is no.

#Fediverse, are you ready for the cutest thing ever?
My parent's cat loves sleeping on the dryer, but as he got older he was having a hard time jumping up to it. So my dad built him a little ramp 😭🐱
My boyfriend found a video we shot on his phone in September and listened to it alongside a short clip I shot this morning. It's a subtle change, but his voice is definitely beginning to crack and lower.
Since I don't like showing my face, I'm going to re-download an iOS app I used in undergrad for interviews to record my voice change in the coming months. I'm going to bully my boyfriend into doing the same.

I was trying to read a review about 'Arctic Dogs', the animated film that recently bombed at the box office. This local news website decided to give me this pop-up, and honestly, this is all I need to know about the type of city this paper serves. 🙂 I'll find a different review.
I'm your friendly neighbourhood femme boi and devil worshipper, sacrificing heterosexual virgins weekly to keep you and your families safe.
