Girls will be boys and boys will be girls
It’s a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world

Ray Davies, 1970

One of the most unexpectedly distressing things about growing old is watching the world lose its shit over trivial things that are not, in any way, new, while it completely ignores dire and worsening problems which are also not, in any way, new.

So it goes.

P. S. Whether someone is trans is not something other people should lose their shit over (https://www.nytimes.com/2023/01/25/us/politics/transgender-laws-republicans.html). Meanwhile, Hong Kong’s coastline loses three vertical centimeters a year to the rising ocean (https://www.hko.gov.hk/en/education/aviation-and-marine/aviation/00505-on-sea-level-rise-and-abnormal-sea-level-in-hong-kong.html).
