i started crying in there

i feel like vilde is going to be that girl who like, knows she’s into girls when she graduates high school but then she gets to uni and takes her first women’s studies class and spends the whole term having a Revelation and that revelation is literally just holy shit i love women???? and not always in a sexual or romantic sense, but just reading all these incredible women writers and theorists, learning about all the amazing women who have broken ground in every field, rethinking all she’s ever known about history once she realizes the ways women and their contributions have been systematically erased and feeling all the pain and indignation for them, as well as all the pain and indignation she feels for herself that it took her this long to find out about it. just vilde finding a whole world of writing and of thought about women, written by women, focused entirely on women and their relationships with each other and the power contained there. and the more she learns, the more comfortable she starts to feel with expressing that she’s drawn to women, that she’s fascinated by them, that she thinks most everything they do is fantastic. and a lot of that is intellectual, but a lot of it also starts to loop back into what she’s still discovering about her sexuality and how much she loves like, the way women dress and how they smell and the sounds of their laughs and the shapes of their bodies and what they can do with them, and it’s all just like !! holy shit!! she loves women!!! more than she ever thought was possible, but every day she finds something new, and it’s amazing. women are amazing. w ow.

I Feel Lost…

This was my initial reaction to all of this. Like I said, I wasn’t expecting anything, so this blew my mind. I still can’t wrap my head around it if I’m being honest. There’s always that little voice in the back of my mind that throws all of this out the window, but for once it’s not there. I took in every word and compliment and tried to accept it. I’ll answer all of them one by one, but it probably won’t be with a drawing. I’ve really got to go to bed now. Good night guys. Thank you so much for your kind words and actions. I really treasure all of it.

Can I request a star for @notcondraws She's fighting a lot of demons right now, and her health has severely deteriorated in the past few weeks. I'd like her to know that she's strong and she is more than her depression. And that she has so much courage and fight. {sorry started crying} I just wish she knew....

Sure!

This star is for @notcondraws, who sounds like an amazing person. You are incredibly strong and have so much courage and fight, don’t let your depression and demons get the better of you. Take care of yourself, and know that you will be able to make it through this tough time. Show those demons who’s boss <3

Keep on shining!
