i think sometimes ppl on here (myself included) have to accept that you can’t change everyone’s opinions and i know it can get so personal when it comes to intra community issues but sometimes all you can do is talk about how you feel and support your own beliefs with sound reasoning and sources.
but the important thing is that you don’t have to respond to every little thing you see that you don’t agree with and your time and energy could likely be spent on more productive things than arguing the same discourse fight you’ve been having for the past 3 years. it can be so emotionally draining to constantly expose yourself to views that you know will upset you. i try to avoid lesbophobic circles on here as much as possible because even though i think it’s important to counter that rhetoric i can’t emotionally survive seeing that bs all the time.
all im saying is that we need to look after ourselves and also be wary of how we exert our energy. i promise it will make you only happier and will only make your activism better.
