…and anyone else I missed.
I hate posts like these, and I really wish I could just delete them from tumblr, all at once, because you guys are so much more than this and I hate, hate, hate to see people talking themselves down.
You are not unattractive people.
It is that simple.
(I won’t argue with awkward, because fuck knows we’re all a little socially abnormal.)
But I know you guys, and you are some of the least unattractive people I know.
Say what you want about societal standards of beauty and how you don’t feel that you comply with them, about how people have called you ugly, about how you don’t feel like you fit in with people who are ‘beautiful’.
Say what you want, but be prepared to have me punch you in the face for it.
You are each beautiful. Each and every one of you.
Inside and outside, you are attractive people, and the idea that you publicly (fine, semi-publicly, this is tumblr after all) are willing to announce that makes me so very sad.
I think your’re each attractive, pretty, beautiful, whatever word you want to use for it. I do.
And you know what, even beyond looks, you’re all fantastic.
You guys mean the world to me. You’re all kind and funny and you’ve each done so much for me that you can’t even fathom how much I love you. You are beautiful people who do and create beautiful things - writing and drawing and buying me biscuits when I’m sad and watching Humphrey Bogart films with me and buying me art supplies when you hear me say that I’m running low.
So fuck you and your reblogs.
I don’t want to see them on my dash, because they’re lies.
You are attractive people. You’re more than attractive. You’re beautiful and perfect and I wouldn’t change a single one of you. And I’m going to keep telling you this until you guys start to believe it, because it kills me that you think so little of yourself when you’re worth so much.
