Dear Leslie, Explanation
Letters to Leslie Feinberg

Beautifully written new blog. Can’t wait to see where the author takes it.

Regarding gender and sexuality, I will write to you. I don’t need anyone to tell me I am not broken (I’m already down with me, Leslie). I just want to learn how to cope with feeling this alone in my not-woman-or-man-ness. I just want to learn how to better understand and navigate life as a genderqueer person. I know I’m not alone. Committing that knowledge to my heart and learning how to thaw remains on my to do list.

Things to learn:

How to [be] love[d]

&

How to be content,

while still

Fighting against all that which is inhumane.

HELP

I made a post a couple days ago about wanting Farkle to be gay. Now that was just a blanket statement; I in no way specified who I want him to be with and I do not intend on doing that anytime soon.

That’s not exactly the point. It’s kind of a part of it, but not totally.

When I first started this blog, I intended it to be neutral when it comes to shipping to prevent any Tumblr fights from breaking out. (I’m a multi-fandom fangirl so I’ve seen way more ship wars than I needed.)

However, I’ve been watching and analyzing GMW more and I think I’m accidently starting to ship Riarkle. I hate the idea of taking sides since the ships are what cause a lot of controversy in this particular fandom.

Basically I think I ship Riarkle, I want Farkle to be gay, and at the same time I want to keep my blog as neutral territory.

Does anyone know how to manage that?

Date a guy who shitposts.

Don’t date a guy who aesthetic blogs. For the first months he’ll take a thousand photos of you and him, filtered perfectly and reblogged by the classiest blogs. Every time he sees you, you’ll know you’re the most incredible sight his eyes ever touched. But as the years wear on and he forgets to wonder, he’ll grow cold and distant, spending more and more time staring at his blog statistics.
Don’t date a fandom blogger. Though he dreams that together you’ll be like Dean and Cas, he’ll stand you up at your dates one too many times because he got in a gif war over his One Direction ship.
Date a guy who shitposts. His jokes might only make you laugh half the time, and he may troll your brother on Facebook, but that humor will take you through the dark years of republican presidencies and internet outages. He’ll stay with you through the whitewashing of your favorite YA book, through the long nights spent staring at pictures of trees. And when you’re old and gray together, swinging in the futon on your front porch watching the seventeenth Doctor fight off Daleks, and when your heart seizes, when they load you in the balanced and he rides with you he’ll lean in close to comfort you and whisper in your ear:
“I still got your back, man. ‘Cause you’re my vertebruh.”

Do you see these kids? This is NOT a childhood. They should be running around the park, jumping in mud puddles, and having play dates. They should NOT be getting countless surgeries, receiving chemo, losing their hair, throwing up in a bucket, or be connected to countless machines and tubes that breathe for them. This is not okay.

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and I ask every single one of you will you please help spread awareness? Will you please GO GOLD with us? Will you tell others how 7 kids die every day and that 46 are diagnosed? Childhood cancer is the number 1 disease killer of kids in America, and incidence rates are on the rise. Yet less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) budget goes to fund childhood cancer research.

Those kids in the pictures aren’t statistics. They are someone’s child. Someone’s niece, nephew and cousin. What if it was your child or sibling? 1/285 will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 20. Kids are the future. They have their entire lives ahead of them. They deserve better. They are worth more than 3.8%. It is up to us to fight for them.

Will you be a voice for these kids? It’s simple. All you have to is share this post to help spread awareness. Please let everyone you know about childhood cancer.

You can also donate even $1 to The Ronan Thompson Foundation if you feel to do so.

Be bold go GOLD.

With hope for a cure,
Courteney Rene’

Hindi mo kailangang ikumpara ang sarili mo sa ibang bloggers. Kasi hindi naman tayo gumawa ng blog para makipagkumpitensya sa kapwa blogger natin. Hindi importante kung sino yung magaling, kung sino yung nakakaangat sa iba. Magblog ka lang ng magblog, gawin mo yung mga bagay na makakapagpasaya sayo. Huwag mo ng isipin ang sasabihin ng ibang tao tungkol sayo at sa blog mo.
