A long time ago, there was a unicorn.
he was different from others, however, he didn’t have a horn.
He had wings instead,
When he was at school he was called to a pegasus, much to his dread.
Every day, he would come home crying,
His mother, not knowing what was wrong, tried to teach him flying.
But the unicorn hated flying, he hated his wings, he wanted a horn.
One day the unicorn came home, looking especially forlorn.
His mother, still concerned, asked him what was wrong.
The unicorn said “I’m not a pegasus, I’ve been a unicorn all along.”
The mother, surprised at the news, asked if that’s why he’s been so upset.
The unicorn said “yes, though I try to forget.”
For a moment, there was utter silence
Before the mom said that she would support him, and protect him from violence.
The unicorn had many more struggles ahead.
But the unicorn came home, smiling instead.
PSA: Just because you’ve suffered more hardships than a person does not give you to right to dismiss their problems and say “I’ve had worse.” and “You know, that was nothing compared to…..” Their experience does not make it any less painful to them than yours. Not only that, you will also prevent them from reaching out to people when they are dealing with severe problems and force them to deal with their difficulties without the support of others. No one’s emotions are ‘superior’ to others; all of our emotions have equal priority. And remember that crying never makes you weak.
Please, raise your kid to a loving, caring person. Teach them that we have to fight racism, sexism and xenophobia. Tell them that money is not important. Please give them a good example because your new president won’t do it.
Kallie is either writing fluff to compensate for the fact that she has three angsty wifeys, or she’s writing wonderful smut and chaptered fic. So read this one first, and then read everything else (ESPECIALLY THE MCDONALDS FIC.)
