so about this shaming thing

[ Art of Joshua looking away irritably with a sign hanging around his neck that reads, “I’m a big drama queen that couldn’t admit to my own problems so I tried to delete fucking everything instead”, and in smaller writing, “I also made Neku spend his money on a parasitic fungus” ]

anagnori:

It takes a lot of courage to be honest with yourself, and to see yourself for what you really are. And it takes even more courage to admit that you were wrong and that you need to start doing things differently.

I wish more folks would appreciate the inner strength it takes for people—especially kids and teenagers—to question their identities and try out words for themselves, instead of dismissing them as “confused,” or “attention-seeking.”

To be confused about your identity doesn’t mean that you are weak or fake. Not knowing something doesn’t mean that you are foolish or inferior. Being able to admit you don’t know something, is the first step to learning and growing as a person.

temporaldecay:

Like, it’s totally okay if you’re not equipped to handle the issues of race and racism and colonialism and all the fuckery that follows from white supremacy and your (hopefully unintentional) place benefiting from it.

I respect your right to not have the spoons to handle shit. I respect the wisdom to realize you don’t know shit and should probably sit back and learn instead of trying to come in guns blazing, trying to take over the conversation.

No one can have a stake on every fight. No one can take each fight personally.

But don’t fucking throw us under the bus. And don’t fucking barricade yourself against criticism by flaunting your oppression credentials. Being autistic or OCD or depressed is not a fucking free pass to be a goddamn bag of racist shit. Being gay or trans or bi or poly or asexual or whatever you identify with doesn’t mean you’re automatically excused from being called out if you decide to show your racist ass in public.

I don’t care how fucking oppressed you are.

You don’t fix your oppression by shitting on a different group.

There’s no identity you can claim that gives you a free pass to be racist.

Why is this so hard to fucking understand and why are white people so fucking quick to bring up their struggles when they get called out on this shit? No one’s denying your struggles, we’re just asking you to not add to ours, you fucking jerk.

Yellow - You’re amazing.

Aw, thank you. :3 I strongly suspect that the same goes for you, for the record.

That’d be friggin’ sweet.” Katara stretches out her arms and buries her face in defeat.]

So today in Japanese class I learned how to say “don’t judge me”, and I’m pretty sure it’s already becoming my most used vocabulary for when I’m in class. I almost feel bad about all the lost opportunity to use it until now.

She had curves in all the wrong places - some of them cast a 3-dimensional shadows, still others hummed a low, discordant note as they flitted about like flies. She was nothing like other girls - she was an abomination from the 6th plane of torment

Coming Out Simulator 2014 - a half-true game about half-truths

Coming Out Simulator is exactly what it says it is. It’s a free-to-play conversation simulator based on/inspired by the personal story of coming out of its creator, Nicky Case.

There’s no easy answer in Coming Out Simulator, no optimal ending to be achieved if you collect the requisite amount of points. Case based the game off a pivotal moment in his own life as a teenager. And just like in real life, the moment of “coming out” in this game is traumatic no matter which way the player chooses to approach it.

Ultimately, it’s liberating as well. But that’s not what the brunt of the experience playing Coming Out Simulator is actually like. […] There’s power in exploring a fantasy like the one in Mass Effect 3, but there’s also power in being reminded that “coming out” the way one does in that game is a fantasy, and a pretty far-fetched one for many people who faced far more difficult challenges when they actually came out.

Coming Out Simulator is a game about that second experience. It’s a painful one. But it’s also a necessary one, that I think more people who’ve never had to struggle with their own sexual identity should see for themselves. 

this game made me cry omfg

[ Image: Screencap of the game, showing a boy talking to his mom over dinner with dialogue formatted like text messages.
BOY: “I’m bisexual.”
BOY: “Sexually attracted to both men and women.”
MOM: “You can’t be both.”
MOM: “You have to pick one.”
BOY: “That’s… not how it works. At all.” ]
