you're still my family

Whenever I see some misogynistic asshole going on and on about “horrible” feminists, and that if they’d stop being feminist, men would want to date and marry them, I always want to chime in and tell them I’d rather life my life solo then stuck with some asshole who mistakenly thinks I’m lesser because I’m a woman.

Over the past year I’ve been figuring out my sexuality. I’ve told a handful of people about it and was finally ready to try to come out to a few friends and maybe even family members. Then Orlando happened and I think I retreated back into the closet so fast I slammed the door on my fingers. I’m scared and angry and sad. But then through all those emotions I saw Mara Wilson come out and I thought “If an actress I’ve looked up to my whole life can come out during this horrible time for our community, why can’t I?”

So I want to take a baby step today and come out to you all.

My name is Emily. I am bisexual. I will not let other people’s hatred keep me from being who I am. And I will be here for all of you who need someone.

Baby Shikadai has a cameo on the last page of Shikamaru Hiden, guys (❁´▽`❁)*✲゚*

And Temari made clear that if Shikamaru doesn’t get his shit together and complains too much, she will literally send him flying - again - right in his face.

tidbits of things i am currently working on:

-ushering out forgiveness to the unforgivable
-writing absolutely honestly how i feel
-reading christian books with full intention to be totally immersed the whole time
-complimenting always. no matter who. no matter where. no matter when.
-vulnerability (with even five year olds) is the only way i will make the difference i desire.
-be there. be 100% there. wherever i am.
-extend my arms before i open my mouth.
-let the love i have for myself, radiate into my interactions with everyone around me.
-understand my anxiety. take care of my anxiety. don’t let my anxiety take care of me.
