Pole tomorrow. :D :D
I’ve ordered a new camera & want to make some useful new videos. Any topic requests?! Anything & everything will be considered!?
A brilliant metaphor
6. Cycle lanes are built just for you, and then the cars drive in those too.
I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy
because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless
and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.
I wanted to address something that has been playing on my mind for a long time, that I didn’t address for reasons that I shall state.
Basically, about a year ago, Felice and I went through a phase where we thought it was funny to make toilet humour jokes; some of you may have seen these but in short, we’d mix in comments saying we loved each other (which weren’t lies) with the crude humour.
What I want to address is the fact that these comments were seen by some as offensive to lesbians, thinking that we were, perhaps, mocking lesbians in some way. This was not my intention whatsoever; we were not attempting to emulate or joke about anyone’s sexuality whatsoever.
The problem mostly only became a problem after people had inboxed us to ask us to clarify whether we were in a relationship or not, something which I evaded simply out of wishing to keep my personal life private. The way I conveyed that message actually came across as though I didn’t care.
The truth here was that I was, at the time, receiving abusive anonymous messages in my inbox on a daily basis and it was hard to differentiate between genuine messages and between people baiting me. I feel that regardless of being baited or not, my reaction was unhelpful as it only led to more confusion among those who were genuine, and I suppose even those who were hateful.
So, this is me saying that I am sorry for not making my intentions clear, for not explaining myself at the time and ask a consequence coming across as intolerant and potentially causing harm.
The issue of equality is a massive one, and it’s very important to me. I know it was a long while ago that these things were said but it’s stuck in my mind. I feel less under pressure to ignore, ignore, ignore all the hate these days because I am finally no longer receiving much hate mail in my inbox. I feel able to address issues and handle them much better now.
I know I don’t discuss my own sexuality much on Tumblr, but I suppose I often feel that perhaps it’s a personal thing? Maybe it doesn’t matter so much; I think I just went into my shell a bit. I have had people inbox me in the past with names of people I am dating and it freaks me out a bit, to say the least. But yeah, I think that it’s important to say here that I don’t identify as any specific sexuality; I would say that I am grey asexual and go through phases of sex repulsion even, but then I also go through phases where I am very attracted to certain specific males, and the same for females. Romantically, I would say I’m, perhaps, panromantic? Though I’m not partaking of romantic relationships at present because I am in stage of wanting to learn about myself, which I feel requires a level of selfishness that might potentially be unfair to any potential partner I might have.
I hope you all understand. If anyone has any questions, please do ask! Please note that if you have ever anonymously sent me hate, I may have hit the ‘block’ button, which I believe perhaps works by blocking IP addresses? Correct me if I’m wrong there. But I don’t think I can unblock you if that’s the case. If you want to inbox me and think I may have blocked you, you may do so using a proxy to hide your IP so I get the message. I will be answering all messages pertaining to this post, so if you mention this in your ask, then I will be sure to reply privately if not on anon, or publicly if you are anon, just so you know I have received your reply.
On another note, if anyone has any questions about anything else that I may have said that may have been problematic, I’m always happy to address, discuss and learn. My goal is not to hurt people, I do want to be a good person. ♥
