jokes about conversion therapy (like this one) arent funny because its not just “silly straight parents think sending gay boys off to camp with other gay boys will fix them” its… torture. im not joking historically camps like this are known for both physically and mentallytorturing victims. its not a joke because even though we are making progress in some countries there are still so many places in the world where conversion therapy is legal and does happen and so many young lgbt people are tortured and mentally abused. people who force kids into programs like this arent some mythical character you can use to make fun of old christian people, theyre real and dangerous. conversion therapy ruins lives. it KILLS. its not a joke. and it most certainly isnt a good or fun thing.
the funny thing is that a lot of mental health professionals use the word trigger super liberally, way moreso than on tumblr. actually it seems to me that the idea that “a trigger has to cause flashbacks or maybe severe panic attacks, not just be something that makes you uncomfortable” is a tumblr thing
That was a rough day. …Just a testament to the working environment we have down in Georgia, I sat on a – before we walked out, I sat on an Igloo – and I didn’t want to walk out and start crying, I wanted to have already been flooded. I wanted the weight of her to show in my posture…So I sat on this Igloo and I just cried, you know, and I could see the feet of all of our crew walking back and forth. And I’m just looking at the ground…nobody bothered me, nobody threw rocks at me, you know? Nobody made fun of me, they just let me do my thing.

i just think its funny that we’re stressing over the one million mark for the first week. Like no other artist even comes close….other fandoms are like “it sold 200K first week and debuted at #2 thats amazing” and we’re like “WE CAN DO BETTER THAN 1.2 MILLION AND SHE MUST BE #1 ON THE BILLBOARD 200 FOR AT LEAST THE FIRST 6 WEEKS”
