Remember the time before time? When the streets and school systems weren't filled with violent daycare mutants. When we had some money in our pockets and didn't care what a Muslim was. When 'terorism' wasn't an American colloquialism. When there were a few more whites, a few less browns, and white identity wasnt needed because it was still our default cultural engine. Being a faggot was still a little weird, instead of 'stunning and brave' triumph over the white-cis-patriarchy-gender-bigot-blahblah. I know people romanticize the past, but I just remember a time when people were absolutely happier and 9/11 punctuates my mind as when it all went to shit.
