one time i said “no hetero, no hetero” in school
and this popular athletic straight boy sittin in front of me turned around super slow and looked at me and went “no… hetero?” in the TINIEST MOST BROKEN VOICE IMAGINABLE like he looked and sounded so timid and confused and he was looking at me like his whole life has been a lie because he realized he might be sitting near a queer person
It actually isn’t permanently changed. When paper factories make paper, they push unsettled paper through high pressure steam rollers to smooth it out. When you get the paper wet, the paper unsets itself and goes back to its rough original texture. You can push it back through a steam roller to smooth it out again, and that is partly what happens when we recycle paper.
