just be yourself

2015-2016 Cosplay Progress

The cool thing about cosplaying #my girl Morgan so often is that it ends up encapsulating my cosplay progress. It’s getting to the end of the year, so I thought this might be cool to take a look at~

First picture is October 2015, middle is April 2016, and last is November 2016

(my observations about each year under the cut)

Uh, hi. Just wanted to know if you had any advice on coming out? And is it better to tell friends or family first?

Oh jeez anon you’re asking a horrible person this question cause I’ve come out to like one person in real life. I’m working towards it by dropping hints to my friends though. So that’s what I always suggest. Test the waters and drop some hints so that you can kind of ease into it. I’d do friends first because I feel like they’re generally more accepting and less judgmental than family members. And always do it when you’re comfortable and ready- never feel like you have to come out, you can take all the time you need. Good luck, I love you, I’m sorry if my advice was bad <3

hey guys, if you message me, I may take a while to reply, but I see your message, and I’m not ignoring you, I just don’t think I can really handle being like, actively online tonight. I love ya, stay safe

“People with Down syndrome can do anything, they just do it at their own pace. Give them a chance and you will be rewarded beyond your greatest expectations.”

“I think it is time people realized that people with Down syndrome can be sexy and beautiful. I want people to stop saying ‘I’m sorry’ when I tell them my daughter has Down syndrome, because it’s a very naive statement.”

“If the average person could see the beauty Maddy has inside, how loving and caring she is and if that is what people measured beauty on, then most of the models in the world would have Down syndrome.”

It’s patently bullshit. I think anyone who’s gone to school has heard this from teachers, maybe they’ve even heard it from their parents: “You just gotta be yourself.” But it’s very clear that they don’t really want you to be yourself because every time you express a viewpoint that doesn’t conform to their rigid standards of how a human being should conduct themselves, all the sudden it’s “What are you doing? You need to join the herd. You need to be part of the collective.” And you’re like, “Well, what about being myself?” “Yeah, you need to be yourself within the confines of the collective. What we meant when we said be yourself is that you’re the borg drone that’s fixing the power relays and uh that borg drone, by contrast, is working on the navigations array. So, you see how there’s a slight difference there. But yeah, you all have to be part of the collective. Individuality–that’s not allowed. We didn’t mean be yourself as in ‘be a unique person with your own thoughts, feelings, and opinions.’ We meant be yourself in the sense of 'be somewhat distinctive, but in a way that we can utilize you.”
