Im sure we've all heard about what happened tonight during the tøp concert. I just wanted to remind all of you that Tyler and Josh are here, not just for themselves, but for all of us. We all need to remember that without Tyler and Josh, we'd be devastated. What happened tonight was unacceptable. Tyler's shirt was completely ruined and he was probably scared for his life. And then there was Josh, who had to stay where he was and just watch his best friend be harassed. We all need to love and respect them. If this doesn't stop, there's a possibility that Tyler could get seriously hurt. Tyler even said that he needed to go back. Respect them, or get out of the clique.

This is also not to say that women of color who are currently in romantic relationships with white people are “bad” or “lesser” or “traitors”. We need to protect all women of color in interracial relationships with white people. We need to reassure them that they aren’t “betraying” their own people if they fall in love with a white person. And if they have children with a white person, we need to love the child (who is biracial or multiracial) all the same, and we need to reassure all women of color who are in long-term partnerships with white people that their safety and narratives are still important and still valid. I’ve seen people hurl slur after slur against South Asian women who are dating a white person, for example. And we can definitely discuss colorism and internalized racism as it relates to, for example, cishet men of color only dating white women instead of women of their own racial/ethnic group, and we can discuss why people of color with internalized racism choose to date whites instead of within their own racial group. It’s an important conversation to have for sure. 

I just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who has continued to listen to Fit For Rivals over the years! I’m excited to share our new album with you, I feel y'all are really going to love it! We need your help to spread the word and have this be our biggest release yet! So, please SHARE and tell a friend about us!

Much love, Renee

I'm currently questioning my romantic orientation... I might be no? But I don't know, and I'm worried if I talk to my friends about it the will make a big deal of it or say I'm only doing this for attention.

Hey anon! Thanks for reaching out. This stuff can be weird and messy and confusing, and it can be hard to ask for advice, so kudos to you.

It’s totally normal to question your identity. I’m sorry you are worried your friends will react that way. It sucks not being able to talk about something like this with people you’re close to. It’s a genuine thing you’re questioning, and it doesn’t seem like you’re doing it “for attention”. 

And you know, wanting someone to listen is certainly not wrong either. We all need love and attention. 

Keep in mind that there are literally hundreds of identities and labels out there. So it’s ok for you to not know, or to take your time to figure stuff out, or to not want to figure out even. Your identity and how you describe it is your business. Whatever you decide, it’s valid. Your identity is valid. Being aromantic is totally valid and natural and normal.

If you’d like to talk to someone, you could look into the Trevor Project. They specifically LGBTQ+ youth. I haven’t used them often, but they have an online chat/email service, as well as a phone-line to call. As far as I know, they’re there to listen to you without judging. They’re geared towards preventing crises, but they could be of use to you. You could also try looking into 7 Cups of Tea. You’ll need to make an account, but it’s free. They’re great because they have both one-on-one chat as well as forums, and you can choose which kind of support you’d like to receive (who listens to you, what sort of issues you need help with, etc.). Though I haven’t used it for things related to LGBTQ+ stuff, I know they have specific help for that, and all my experiences with them have been kind and loving and supportive. 

Furthermore, I’ve tried looking for some other aroace resources that could help: @aaceclub​,

I haven’t spent much time really going through these resources, and if they’re not helpful, please don’t hesitate to tell me. I’d love to help you find help. I’m not too experienced with this sort of stuff, but I will do my best to be there for you.

I’d also love to help out. You can seriously just send me an ask or a message any time. Heck, if you just need a shoulder to cry on, I’m here. I know this response got long, and I don’t know if it helped, but I am really glad you reached out. Thank you. I love you. You’re valid and you’re doing a great job. 

We all need to receive love as well as to give love. So give positive verbal messages. Hold hands or hug more often. Compliment from the heart. Communicate your love and caring and compassion. These practices will heal and rejuvenate your relationships.

Isn’t our secondary colour black? I STG I’ll go rob a slytherin moodboard bank soon and reclaim the fierceness,the edgyness and above all the ‘eff the establishment’ default setting,because HELGA is the queen we all need. :)))

Again, I just have to say:

.+*.+*.+*.+*.+*.+*All the Hufflepuff love .+*.+*.+*.+*.+*.+* We need to make some fierce Hufflepuff aesthetics and mood boards... I don't find enough non-cliche ones to send you...

YES! I cannot make aesthetics for the life of me, but if I could they’d be more than flowers and a picture of a badger and yellow, yellow, yellow! We need strength, and rock solid support, and love that doesn’t shout how easy it would be to walk over us! We’re loyalty and strong, continuous love that isn’t cliched, and we’re spine! I wish that was shown more! Helga Hufflepuff took everyone. How is that soft?! There’s so much strength in that and it annoys me that we’re stereotyped into the House that found it very convenient to have their common room right next to the kitchens! 

Heh. Sorry. Got a little too passionate there. *shrugs sheepishly*

Never bring someone up by putting yourself down; never bring yourself up by putting others down. Help lift each other up and see if less fall down alone.
