Hello my people!
So I wanted to wait to say this until I had faced my (irrational) fears (because I am young and know I don’t know everything but I’m trying real hard) and could say this honestly.
If you are trans, bi, ace, gay, lesbian, or just unsure, I care about you.
YOU MATTER! You deserve to be treated with respect and affection.
You should NEVER have to be afraid of someone looking down at you because of how you feel. You should NEVER be denied anything because of how you feel.
If you are none of these things, if you hate the people that are, you are missing out on so much good. Disagreeing with someone doesn’t mean you can’t care about them. AT the VERY LEAST everyone deserves to be treated with a base amount of dignity. Even you, who haven’t always shown it to others.
I have grown a lot recently, and I owe a lot of that to those of you who took the time to answer my questions kindly so I wasn’t left unsure and ignorant. Thank you for teaching me something so important! Something I really should have already known.
If you need anything, anyone to talk to, sometimes a stranger is the best person. I will always be willing to listen and remind you that you have value! That you deserve all the love in the world! I do believe that a persons gender identity, sexuality, race, ethnicity, or religion could ever make Heavenly Father love you less. (If you need a pep talk and aren’t religious I won’t mention him. I don’t want to make anyone uncomfortable.)
