Gay ass nerd: Holy shit

"Ratchet is a racialized term. So is ghetto. So is thug. So is welfare queen. Someone does not have to EXPLICITLY say the word “black” in order for something to be racist against black people. Speaking in flagrantly racist terms is one of the least sophisticated manifestations of racism today."

you’re ALL JEALOUS

thorinbaggins replied to your photo “I don’t think I could be any more attractive right now if I tried. …”

Holy shit I refreshed and just choked on my water GODDAMN SARAH.

Well, I can’t blame you for getting choked up. My astonishing beauty at this moment in time would leave many breathless.

do not let anyone make you feel like shit for putting yourself first

you are the only person that is guaranteed to be with you throughout your whole life so you might as well have a loving relationship with yourself

I won’t change myself to suit your standards.

I won’t be the person you want me to be.

I won’t act how you want me to act.

I wont say what you want me to say.

I will be who I want,

Act how I want

and say what I want. 

I am going to be me despite whatever you think.

Maybe you should start reflecting on yourself,

to see why what I do means so much

that you feel you must change me.

If anyone’s wondering what the shitstorm on my blog was all about

(NB: the posts have been made private.)

I’m apparently a terrible person because I think deliberately lying in front of a moving truck in a driveway, then complaining at the driver for not seeing you and running you over (but not severely hurting/killing you) is stupid.

Who, pray tell, made this educated assessment? A chatroom acquaintance who hasn’t known me in years (actually, ever) and yet thinks they’re suddenly part of my life because they follow my Tumblr.

This is a social media platform, one I use as a casual setting in which to vent and share stuff I’m interested in with like-minded people. It’s not something I take too seriously, even though the bullshit folks pull on here can be stressful. There are times when I’m going to speak flippantly, rather than giving a measured and considerate response. I’m not at school, I’m not at work. On a personal blog, I shouldn’t have to be 100% diplomatic.

After a lifetime of incredibly low self-esteem, I realised it’s okay to love myself. It’s okay to grow at my own rate, regardless of what others think. And because I came from a dark and lonely place to reach this conclusion, I am now fiercely protective of myself, and more discerning about whose input I take in and whose I ignore.

You might be surprised to hear that in my professional and personal life outside the internet, I’m known to readily welcome criticism - in fact, I actively seek it. I’m introspective, and I appreciate hearing what people think as an educational tool and a way of moving forward. Sometimes, you do need a second opinion. But feedback is only valid when it’s based on something. Online I probably don’t want your view on what kind of person I am, or should be, if you don’t actually know me. My friends (some of whom use this website) are honest and straightforward people, and they don’t mince words. They’ve known me for a long time, warts ‘n’ all. So when I already have a vast network of people whose opinion I respect and trust, I don’t need the two cents of nobodies on the internet.

I’m not a perfect person, for sure, but I’m smart. I’m funny. I’m loyal. And I’m a good person, or at least as good as a human can realistically be.

Just so we’re clear, y’hear?

We now return to our regularly scheduled programming. :)
