My brother was nominated to do the ice bucket challenge I am so proud :’]

In other news, first day of school was hectic but a lot of fun. I helped Freshmen find their way around. It was good.

4. Are you easy to get along with?

NOT AT ALL! Most people in person think I’m either alright or kind of a loner at first, but after a bit more people think I’m a hard-ass and really mean, and they hate me. I also don’t talk to people ad put in music to keep people from talking to me because I tend to hate being talked to in person. However, some people that get on my good side find it incredibly simple to get along with me, once they get over that first hurdle. 

13. Do you like it when people play with your hair?

Yes >///< I love it when people braid my ratstail or twirl it. I think it’s flirtatious and oh so adorable. I am so weak. 

43. Do you smile at strangers?

I do. When I pass by someone or someone passes me, I smile up at them just to make sure they aren’t trying to talk to me or need me or something; since I listen to music too much I can’t hear if someone needs me, but to not make it weird for passersby I just smile at them when I know they don’t need me. This makes for endless shy smiling at people walking down the street.

44. Trip to outer space or bottom of the ocean?

Space. I want to reach out and touch stars… 

Ocean is too spooky >___<;;

Still taking Ks for Sunday o7o9)


anyone ever consider the fact that queer, trans, and poc on tumblr are so angry because this is the one place we can vent without being

you know


As a queer, transgender individual, I would have to disagree.

Firstly, I would like to point out that, no, tumblr is not the only place for us to vent without being killed. The internet is a place where pretty much everyone in the developed world goes to vent and let off steam and try to have a good time, but if you have actually used the internet to its full potential, you can easily search other ways and places to vent. For instance, people in your every day life, people all around you, can be willing and happy to listen to you vent about such issues if you would only take the time to find them. There are even groups, clubs, and communities for people in these minority groups. For instance, the town next to mine has a lot of places for LGBT+ members to hang out and vent to one another. My school has a weekly club as well as many resources for its queer community, which happens to be quite a major minority here in Northern California. You only need to find a place where it is acceptable to be who you are sans fear, and there are places that allow you to do so out in the open. The internet can help you put those resources on your radar [if you turned from tumblr long enough to look them up]. 

Secondly, no we are not all angry and upset about these things, nor do we come here just to be angry about things. In fact, that’s the worst way to deal with the issue. No one wants to listen to your problems or cause if all you are doing is being angry about it. Being level-headed or, hey, showing pride even, is more effective than being angry about everything. Sure, queer people are treated horrifically around the globe, and so are transgender people; being in both groups, I realize this. But we definitely do not need to be mad or make a big deal out of these things. We need to fight for our rights, sure, but not with word-guns, or even with real guns. The masses of depressing posts that clog our community are really quite bothersome, and people won’t listen if all we do is whine. Sure, it’s a great idea to vent out bad feelings, but tumblr doesn’t have to be the only place, and that’s not the only thing you have to do. You can be proud too, you know. Don’t let anger, sadness, and fear consume you.

Be happy about your minority, be proud to be more unique than the mass of people who aren’t LGBT+ or POC. Really, the labels shouldn’t exist at all; we are all people no matter our race, identity, or orientation. We have put a wall in front of ourselves and then proclaimed it a horrible object, when really we should just be content with ourselves. Please. 

I’m not saying that we can’t be angry or vent on tumblr, but what OP said is really not true. I go around town wearing my transgender pin with a puffed-out chest and a whole lot of pride, and you know what? I’ve gotten more compliments on my bravery and pride than any threat or glare [I’ve never actually received a threat, to be honest!]. Sure there are fears, very real and very obvious problems and issues that need to be dealt with, but simply venting and being terrified of the outside world will not help.You need to be proud, even if it is just on tumblr. Be safe, but also stand up for yourselves. The world is changing, rapidly. We are getting more representation than I thought was ever possible when I first came out. Life is moving forward now, and we all need to move forward with it.

P.S. I have no words about POC individuals because I am not a POC, but I consider them PEOPLE before I consider their colour, and I think we need to start moving in that direction too.
