You having Joan and Talyn in some of your videos as nonbinary peeps and saying stuff like "guys gals and nonbinary pals" and just generally being so accepting made me brave enough to tell like 6 people I know I'm nonbinary and they ALL took it really well and I'm so happy so thank you!!!
Well that is awesome to hear!!! Definitely one cool thing i wanna make sure my platform can do is normalize all of that so it doesn’t feel like a big deal, because gender identity shouldn’t be a big deal, it’s just who we are! I am SO glad the people in your life are taking it well!! You deserve that recognition and positive support!!
me: I’m so SICK of Megan not texting me back! and NOBODY wants to play basketball right now. at least Jason wants to play fifa with me later but I have to eat in 30 mins bc my mom is picking me up chipotle for dinner and i KNOW she is going to forget the guac……Why is the world completely against me?
everybody: the world is against….you? there are more things going on in the world than just…you. straight white boys like you don’t have THAT many problems….
me: *thinks about all of my problems* hahaha well i disagree with that…
everybody: …Straight White Boys don’t have as many problems compared to any other group of people and, realistically, usually benefit from societal norms that are set up in their favor
me: oh…………wait……i guess i really don’t have that many problems compared to everybody else. while there are some things that are issues in my life, it is up to MYSELF to overcome my own issues instead of complaining about them. and while some problems are out of my control, i have to react to these dilemmas in a positive way so that I can better myself and better others around me as well. Knowing this, i think im ready to move on, ready to do bigger things, ready to contribute to society. i’m finally here.
