Maintenance shed for Kumba, Busch Gardens Tampa

Roller coasters are machines costing tens of millions, built for the sole purpose of visceral fun.

I so rarely think of coasters as what they really are - machines. In my head they are their name, theme, colours and experience. Each unique. Each with a personality. But no, they’re just machines really…

Alpengeist Busch Gardens Williamsburg

In my opinion, Alpengeist is somewhat underrated. It’s unusual, failing to conform to the conventions of this ride type, and so it gets a bit of stick. Instead of having tight, intense inversions that it’s sisters are praised for, it’s gigantic and fast, with long drawn out elements. The wind buffers your face as you plummet, but curling round into each element the speed vanishes and each twist feels like it takes ages to complete. 
It has a great name too… ghost of the Alps, and is themed to a runnaway ski lift.

heteronormativity for dummies or, “why homophobes aren’t the only problem”

Some people will read this and think it’s OTT, but I have a friend who’s dad used to make a huuuuuuge deal out of them watching music videos with girls dancing. Kept saying stuff implying they fancy them etc. This is one example of a bunch of dad-related comments about gender and sexuality they remember growing up.

That kid began to feel really awkward about it and is now trans. But they themselves will explain they aren’t like “normal” trans folk*, in that they don’t feel they were born in the wrong body or even have a negative feeling towards their physical sex. The issue was the conventions of being male forced upon them by their father, and the ONLY escape from that, from that world portrayed by their father that they hated, seemed to be transitioning to a female role.

They’re mostly happy now, living in a gender-queer proud in-between world, but that isn’t the point. Their father really screwed with that young brain and made them immensely uncomfortable about looking the way they did but not behaving the way they should.

* Though I bet there’s a lot of people like this, but they told me they had trouble being taken seriously by medical professionals AND other trans people because they’re not a “real trans person”.

Shit is messed up.
