hey im kind of busy rn but i just wanna like. put this out there
itd be really cool and id appreciate it if yall could maybe avoid reblogging things about leelah alcorn that say that shes “won” because of obama having said conversion therapy is bad
because leelah didnt win. she didnt commit suicide in some grand martyr mission to make the president see conversion therapy as a bad thing. she killed herself from all the abuse of the situation and there is no heroism in it. if leelah had won she would still be here with us, if any trans kid who took their life won, theyd be here with us
we shouldnt need more dying kids and even adults to tell us that abusive transphobic actions are bad. we dont need to treat these people like more martyrs to lift up in this false hope like this
im sorry im being so bleak about this but. idek.
