My dream is that there will come a time where people everywhere will be able to openly express their sexual orientation without being met with comments like “I don’t love you any less because of this.”
No shit you don’t. You don’t have any reason to, just like there was no reason to clarify that point for me. Coming out as a non-hetero shouldn’t be about you reassuring me that you love me DESPITE my sexual orientation, because BEING GAY IS NOT A NEGATIVE.
That is all.
I’d much rather be someone’s shot of whiskey than everyone’s cup of tea.
If you have to compromise who you are to gain someone else’s understanding, their understanding is not something that you need.
I think writing really helps you heal yourself. I think if you write long enough, you will be a healthy person. That is, if you write what you need to write, as opposed to what will make money, or what will make fame.
