Just whatever random thoughts that I get. A lot of it is media stuff, and there's a little social justice but not near enough for me to feel like I'm doing my part but I'm working on that! Also sometimes I feel depressed so there will be angst-filled posts as well sorry. I tend to go through stages with stuff, obsessing over it and then ignoring it for a while so deal with it. And um thanks for stopping by I guess?
Cisgendered, female, 19, somewhere between bi and pansexual (it's hard to explain), demisexual, polyamorous

When I was a kid, and I still thought of myself as a girl - do you know what first made me accept liking other girls? What made me feel comfortable with myself? What made me really, truly realise I wasn’t alone?
It was censored, of course. Amara and Michelle were cousins. But I knew there was something going on there, and I got myself online and I found out what Haruka and Michiru were to each other and it - hell, it changed my life.
Looking back, it might well have been one of the things that saved it.
Why the hell shouldn’t I want other kids to have that? What’s so wrong with showing them that they aren’t strange, aren’t disgusting, aren’t alone? With exposing their peers to people who are different in a way that shows them it isn’t wrong?
That’s why so many people want this relationship so fervently. That’s why they think it’s so important.
Representing and normalising queerness is essential. For queer people, for straight people, for children and teens and adults.
It shouldn’t need its own special slot. It shouldn’t need a warning. It shouldn’t need an age limit. All that does is reinforce the stigma surrounding it. It’s different. It’s explicit. It’s inappropriate. Hide it away in its own little corner.
If Finn can have a crush on Princess Bubblegum, Marceline should be allowed to have one, too - and if Bonnibelle wants to reciprocate? Then good on her. For goodness’ sake, this show already ships a talking dog and a rainbow unicorn, I think it has room for a candy princess and a vampire queen.
