I'm not cis either. I'm genderfluid as well as pansexual. And like I have no problem using something different. My problem was your reaction, the whole rolling your eyes thing. That actually kinda hurt a bit, especially coming from a blog that I really look up to. It kinda almost made me feel invalid because of a word choice. Do I think that was your intention, of course not. But, now it makes me feel terrified talking to you that perhaps I'm just not right or good enough.
I never react to things on tumblr, I just don’t. But this is something that genuinely bothers me and makes me grit my teeth when I see it. It is my reaction. There will always be people of groups that aren’t offended by things and say “yeah use it, I don’t care!” And there will always be people who do. This, racial slurs/racism, sexism, and cultural appropriation are the things I have major problems with. Other than that, I’m fine. I have a problem with the above list bc they either hurt others or are disrespectful to others.
Other than that, it’s fine. This is one thing I’ve reacted to in at least 6+ months, if not the whole time I’ve had this blog. I swore and I was mad because it makes me mad. It feels disrespectful, like I said in that ask, to the queer folks who have come out of the closet and literally been killed. It’s not comparable to me.
I’m not the witch queen or anything, I’m not your mom, I can’t tell you what to say or what to think. I’m not the end all be all, you’re entitled to what you think, just as much as I am. I just personally don’t agree. Just because we have one differing opinion doesn’t mean I would think everything you say or do is wrong. I go out of my way to be kind, open, and understanding to everyone who comes into my inbox, regardless of opinions. I was asked about my opinion by that person and I gave it is all.
If you want to call yourself a closeted witch, do it, that’s not my choice. Just to me personally, coming out as a queer lady vs telling people I’m a witch don’t hold the same weight, fear, and backlash. One is a choice and one isn’t. My rights don’t get taken away from me bc I’m a witch.
Didn’t intend for it to be mean, I never do. Just my opinion is all.
