I want to educate people about LGBTQIA issues, especially trans issues. I wan’t to help people learn. But it’s difficult to want to do that when the majority of people are like “convince me on why i should give a shit about your basic human rights” instead of “im curious and I dont know as much about this as i should, can you help me understand”
- Friend: So how do you think you've changed since high school?
- Me: Well I became aware of oppressive power structures and how we are complicit in them and now seek to dismantle them.
- Friend: ...
- Me: I also think I got hotter.
You know whats fucking scary? The fact that I could literally change my life at any moment. I could stop talking to everyone that makes me unhappy. I could kiss whoever i want. I could shave my head or get on a plane or take my own life. Nothing is stopping me. The entire world is in my hands, and I have no idea what to do with it.
