i'm listing things that don't matter

Why do people like you call people like me homophobic, racists, sexist, unAmerican, the list goes on and on?No, I don't support the LGBTQ+ community, but I don't think they're are lesser than I am. I don't hate them. I think the "black lives matter" thing is kinda dumb because ALL lives matter. God created ALL of us, so we all matter. No,I'm not necessarily a feminist, but I am a women. I don't think I'm "unamerican" because I support trump and still do because he is the freakin PRESIDENT

I don’t know who you are or what you’re referring to when you say “people like you” and “people like me.” Do you mean Trump supporters?

I made the unAmerican comment to a troll Trump supporter who keeps @ing me to say people who won’t perform for Trump should lose their citizenship and that we owe the president obedience or lose citizenship, which is EXTREMELY unAmerican.

“No, I don’t support the LGBTQ+ community, but I don’t think they’re are lesser than I am.” I can’t even understand this sentence. You don’t support them but don’t think that’s wrong?

Black Lives Matter: you see to be one of the people who sees those words and immediately adds MORE. No one is saying Black Lives Matter More. Please educate yourself on this.

Feminism just means equality. You don’t believe in that?

You believe in supporting an elected official in spite of serious problems and dangers that seem to be a daily occurrence? Are we incapable of criticizing our politicians? Isn’t that part of the bedrock of American freedoms?

hi i'm sorry if you've answered this before but why don't you like blaine?

I have a very long list of reasons why I don’t like Blaine, and not nearly enough time. The heart of the matter is that he’s abusive (toward everyone, not even just Kurt, although Kurt bears the worst of it), spoiled, selfish, an attention whore who would run over his own grandmother if it meant a chance to sing a solo. Not to mention the fact that he is all of those things, PLUS dresses like an overgrown toddler, yet everyone on the show treats him like he’s God’s gift to mankind. 

But yeah, mostly I hate him because he is an abusive ass. You need look no further than the Tested episode, in which he admits, outright and out loud, that he doesn’t like it when Kurt feels good about himself because it means less attention for Blaine. In the same episode, he tried to sabotage Kurt’s diet, PLUS took several, very violent swings at his head in class when he knew damn well that Kurt was still recovering from a serious skull fracture. Hardly the way anyone would treat the “love of their life.” 

“But Amber!” I can almost hear the Blaine stans whining as they lift their pink sunglasses and glare accusingly at me while crossing their arms over their Starkid shirts, “Blainey learned his lesson and Kurt CHOOSES to trust him and blah blah blaaah.”

Ok, great, except that no, he hasn’t learned his lesson and he never will, because this sort of shit has been going on since the second he slithered his way onto the TV screen. Highlights of his douchebaggery include:

-Confronting Karofsky about his bullying of Kurt, including the reason for the bullying, in the middle of the school day where anyone could hear him, which I can almost guarantee was the catalyst for the death threat against Kurt in 2x07

-Telling Kurt not to use hand gestures during a performance, despite the fact that he, himself, routinely jumps on furniture and disrupts environments where students are trying to study

-Outing Jeremiah publicly in the middle of his workplace and only being concerned with the fact that he was rejected, rather than the fact that he just got someone fired.

-Telling Kurt his sexy faces looked like gas pains

-Auditioning for the role of Tony when he knew Kurt needed that role to put on his college application

-SEXUALLY ASSAULTING KURT IN THE BACK OF A CAR

-Continuing communication with Sebastian behind Kurt’s back, despite knowing full well that Sebastian was looking for sex and didn’t care that Blaine had a boyfriend

-Despite the whole Sebastian debacle, throwing a bitch fit when Kurt exchanged a few texts with Chandler and humiliating him in front of all their friends

-Not giving two shits about the news that Kurt was a finalist for NYADA

-Encouraging Kurt to go to NY, then SLEEPING WITH A FACEBOOK RANDOM two weeks later

-Aggressively pursuing Kurt and trying to snag him back, while at the same time openly lusting over Sam

-Confronting Elliott in his own apartment because he was jealous of Kurt daring to have any male friends (yet, see above, lusting after Sam is still perfectly fine)

And this list BARELY scratches the surface. Blaine Anderson is a loathsome, repugnant character, and the sooner he leaves television airwaves, the better off everyone will be.

What's your opinion on publishing books on things like Amazon Kindle? I'd love to publish the story I'm writing, but I am an extremely sensitive writer and I don't think I could handle rejection, no matter how many people say that rejection, in the long run, can be a good thing. Do you have any advice for younger writers (I'm 17) who are seeking to get published? Many thanks!

If you’re going to put your work out there, you will face rejection. Whether the rejection comes in the form of publishing itself or a bad review, it will come.

What motivates me past rejection is a list of successful people who weren’t successful until later in their lives, which came in one of my journals. Whether it was physics, math, or writing, these people failed and failed until they finally got it right and hit success. A huge part of it is knowing how to take rejection and not giving up.

Don’t listen to everything people say. Neil Gaiman said, “Remember: when people tell you something’s wrong or doesn’t work for them, they are almost always right. When they tell you exactly what they think is wrong and how to fix it, they are almost always wrong.” You have to pick and choose with criticism. You want to improve, but make sure your work is still yours- and how you want it to be.

Just because you get rejected does not mean you or your writing are bad.

Sometimes, publishers reject books just because they don’t fit the market. Maybe your new adult novel is more of a young adult novel after all. Maybe you submitted to a publisher who is looking for select few genres right now and you overlooked that. Maybe the publisher doesn’t think the story will suit their readers- but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t mean the world to someone else. Maybe it’s just bullshit: I’ve read stories of people getting rejected for being too diverse or having too many female lead characters. PLEASE DO NOT LET BULLSHIT DETER YOU FROM WRITING DIVERSE BOOKS. There are many publishers who are more than happy to publish diverse books- and are actively seeking out diverse books right now- so just do your research and find the right market for your story. Books are amazing, but also a business.

Keep your head up- and keep writing.
