if you go up to your boss and say “YOURE A FUCKING ASSHOLE. YOURE FIRED!!” nothing happens to your boss because you’re not in a position to do anything to her like that. if she goes “NO, YOURE FIRED.” then you’re out on your ass and unemployed. you both said the same thing, but its effects were COMPLETELY different, because of the POSITIONS OF POWER.
Do not hate the kids who read Wuthering Heights because of Twilight. Do not hate the kids who support LGBTQ rights because of Glee. Do not hate the kids who call themselves feminists because of Beyonce. Do not hate the kids who read LotR because of GoT. Do not hate the kids who question beauty standards because of All About that Bass.

You act like I chose this. I’m tired, I hurt emotionally, physically, mentally, and everywhere in between. This isn’t a choice, this is hell. Before you accuse me of causing my own pain, reflect back on the last time you were in pain and put yourself in my shoes.
