Dancing with the Trigger

Stephanie Bennett-Henry – singing a wolfish song

Stephanie Bennett-Henry

The moon is full or maybe that’s my eyes

welling up like they do, when the lump in

my throat can’t hold its place anymore

and it crumbles out from the belly of god.

So loud, all the wolves come to my feet

and call me home. I say,

“Go away. You are lost, follow the moon

until you hear the howl.”

But they sit there, fixed on my eyes.

Focused steady on the song ripping from

my throat, and I scream,

“There’s no goddamn music anyway!”

There never was. It was me singing from

the music in my head. Falling, but calling

it a dance. I do that sometimes to forget

the dance is just me alone, trying to make

sense of this war inside, but there is no

easy answer for the way my fingers love

to touch the shine of the trigger.

Here’s to the Queers

Devon brings a letter, necessarily anonymous, from The Closet, about which she has much to say.

Devon J Hall

Before we get started I am about to post something that I did not write – how I found it does not matter, and the name of the unidentified author does not matter. I have my suspicions and I am sure you will to – I will delete any post that attempts in any way to try and “out” the author.

This was posted anonymously for a reason, please attempt to respect that. Without further ado here is a post that completely shattered my heart.


First of all, I would just like to say that being closeted is the hardest part of being in the spotlight, especially when one is famous for their “looks.”

I am an American film actor and I have been pretty much inside of the fragile wardrobe for some time now…

I wasn’t “gay” or “into men” persay throughout my whole career or life for that…

I like looking at photos of the inside of other people’s refrigerators.

What does your refrigerator say about you? LuckyOtter is curious.

Here’s a Fun Fact about me:

I’ve always loved to look at photos of the inside of other people’s refrigerators. I have an unhealthy curiosity about the contents of other people’s fridges.   But it has to be a picture, because in a picture I can sit in the privacy of my own home, silently admiring or judging the kinds of food I see there without people thinking I’m weird or want their food (because usually, I don’t).

My son just received his work bonus and tweeted the above photo of his newly full fridge (you can actually click on it to make it bigger).

This made me far happier than it should have,  because even if he was just some random person and not my son, that photo would have still made me happy.   I just really like looking at photos of the contents of people’s fridges.

The Danger of ‘Survival of the Fittest’ in Society

This is an excellent article on the false and corrupting beliefs about the nature of society known as Social Darwinism.

The Blog at 2408

Social Darwinism: A Misappropriation of Natural Law onto Human Society

I recently had a conversation with a co-worker about the nature of human society. Was it progressing or regressing? Was it working just fine or was it broken beyond repair? Where are we headed? He had more pessimistic predictions than I did. To make a point during the discussion, he brought up the movie Idiocracy, a 2006 movie about a man who was frozen in a hibernation experiment, and as the Wikipedia article on it summarizes, “only to awaken 500 years later in a dystopian society where advertising, commercialism, and cultural anti-intellectualism have run rampant and that is devoid of intellectual curiosity, social responsibility, and coherent notions of justice and human rights.” Is that where we are headed, as he argued?

My coworker also brought up Social Darwinism to explain his point of view. Humans have stopped living competitively…

Stop Talking – An Open Letter to Matt Damon and his Damonites!

Devon says LISTEN

Devon J Hall

So a lot of people are really confused as to why so many of “Us” are angry with Matt Damon, the answer is both simple and incredibly complicated. I would like to dedicate this post to my friend Lua, it’s a much better post because of her influence, my earlier one was much angrier.

So without further adu, let’s put the last brick of my future in Hollywood into the ground shall we?

He does not get it, he is not a victim of sexual abuse, so he will never get it.

You cannot, no matter how hard you try, quantify abuse; one person’s experience being groped is actually incredibly equivalent to being raped.

Someone who had been raped once told me she knew how I felt, I smiled softly and said, “No you don’t sweetheart, you were raped once, I was raped repeatedly over more than twenty years

October is The Month of Harvest *giveAway inside*

Devon is making a writing contest, with a prize, even. WooHoo

Devon J Hall

Screenshot_7For Witches, October is more than just ghost hunting and candy collection. A lot of people revert to the story of how Witches dressed their children up like demons and zombies to protect them from the evil that would be set free on Hallow’s eve.

They say that our ancestors taught the “gentile” to do the same so that the demons would get confused and leave children alone.

Perhaps that’s true, but it’s also for us, the time of the Harvest. Samhain is about letting go of the past and moving on into the future with a clean slate.

We cleanse our homes and lives of the negative things, people and reminders that bring us harm and we move into a new year, with a bright clean homestead, freshly welcome and open to positive vibes.

I honestly feel that is what I am going through right now, a metamorphosis of…

I am so damned tired

Devon is weary.

Devon J Hall

I know in comparison my life is not in shambles, I know that there are a million, hundreds of millions of people right now who are truly suffering. This doesn’t make me feel any better. I am trying hard to remember that I could be in far worse circumstances.

I tried hard not to engage with someone who took a post I made about Nazi behavior as a dig at him – this person is constantly thinking about himself first. His life is always worse than anyone else’s.

Recently he sent me these messages in response to my official post about how I feel about Nazi culture.

I was going to ask you guys to donate make a patreon or a go fund me or something, but the truth is I just don’t have the energy to ask for help. I’ve never been good at it.

It is going to…
