Hello lovely followers! I have been absent for more than 24 hours (AHHH). Alarming, I know. But I have good reasons.
I have launched a project: White Flag Wonder. My hope is that it will become a community for people of all addictions so that we don’t feel alone, because we are not alone! WFW will be ABOUT YOU- not me.
I want to hear from you. I want you to create this community. I want you to submit your stories, recorded on video, written down, even sang!
You don’t need to post your suicidal thoughts on your tumblrs and hope someone will see them. You don’t have to sit at your computer waiting for someone to send you a message on your latest post. You will have a whole range of people to connect with.
I will also be posting various fandom thangs. Did you really think I wouldn’t take my silliness with me?

Two Gay Men Arrested In Russia For Holding A Sign That Read “Homosexuality Is Normal”
For the first time, police in St. Petersburg, Russia, have made arrests on the strength of a new law banning the dissemination of information on homo-, bi- and transsexuality. Two men were arrested in the city center on Thursday after holding up a sign reading “Homosexuality Is Normal,” according to the newswire Interfax.
Russia’s second-largest city passed the controversial law on Feb. 29. The two men now face a possible maximum fine of 500,000 rubles (€12,800/$17,000). The maximum penalty is more than the average annual income in Russia.
The law bans films, music videos, books and newspapers that contain homosexual content as well as the rainbow flag, which is a common symbol of gay pride. And the ban may soon no longer be limited to just St. Petersburg and other cities in Russia. At the end of March, Vladimir Putin’s United Russia party introduced a bill in the country’s parliament, the Duma, which would impose the ban at the national level.
“We are trying to protect our society from homosexual propaganda,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Russian radio three weeks ago.
