At a time when there is a lot of cruelty, backbiting, and negative crusading going on to the detriment of a majority of fandoms and communities on Tumblr; please allow me to tell you, my loyal, supportive followers, how much I appreciate you—and your kind and humble hearts. It is a real honor to have you stay with me, and support me. The respect I feel from you is overwhelming, and I cannot thank you enough. You are safe from anti/toxic purity culture here. You are valid. You are loved. You don’t have to hide from me. You don’t have to hide, full stop. I know it’s a big world full of hate out there, right now from people who should know better than to act the way they do. Just know that I’m not stopping because of it, and you have my shoulder or ear if you need it. It’s about mutual respect. We don’t all have to like the same things, or even approve of them. But you will always receive respect here as long as you give it.
