The whole “animals are friends, not food” saying is a really nice sentiment, but it just didn’t ever resonate with me. I know it isn’t meant quite literally, but I just didn’t ever feel that strong of a connection to animals to the point where they were ‘friends’. However, I still view them as living, breathing entities that deserve to exist every bit as much as I do, and deserve a life free from pain, exploitation, torture and slaughter. Just because I didn’t have a strong connection with any one animal or species, doesn’t mean I can’t acknowledge the abuse of power and cruelty inflicted upon them by us humans. You don’t have to be an animal lover to know that harming innocent beings is wrong.
so im 14 and i got outed to my mom in october and she doesn't say anything about me being bi but it just kinda breaks my heart to know that she thinks i've been poisoned. i don't really have anyone to turn to and i'm honestly a wreck. i also used to write fics and i kinda just lost inspiration after that happened, but i've been reading your fics and they make me feel like maybe i'll have someone to turn to someday. so thank you from the bottom of my heart. :)
