Well this is fucking surreal
repeat after me:
allies are not oppressed
being an ally is not a sexual orientation or gender identity
the A in LGBTQA stands for asexual
then what letter is for ally
THERE IS NO LETTER FOR ALLY
ALLIES DO NOT NEED A LETTER
ALLIES ARE LOVED FOR BEING AN ALLY
BUT YOU ARE NOT ANY SHADE OF GAY
A IS FOR ASEXUAL AND AROMANTIC
this is really selfish but
why can’t mental illness be like any other kind of sickness where you go to hospital and your loved ones come and give you flowers and tell you that they love you and hold your hand and make sure you get better
why doesn’t that happen instead of awkward silences and embarrassing tears and messy bedsheets and a bunch of other stuff no one actually talks about

I can’t find a single selfish thing in that.
I am more than: my relationship status. My job. My age. My sexual orientation. My degree or lack of. My last name. My appearance. My gender. My sex. My short comings.
I am: rusted thoughts. A bloody tongue. Every city I have breathed in. Every bedroom I have loved in. Piles of words. Twisted metaphors. My thoughts. My actions. My dreams.
And I am not looking to be loved. I am looking to be seen."
