“I’ve often said if one person has been turned around, if their thinking has been turned around, and they are no longer homophobic, and they can reach out and love their brothers and their sisters as they love themselves, unconditionally, without labeling them in any way, then losing the church will not be in vain.”—
Oliver White is a Minnesota minister who has lost much of his congregation because he supports marriage equality. His church is facing a financial crisis, but he’s managing to keep his head up. Well, I’m inspired. More. (via gaywrites)
“We need others. We need others to love and we need to be loved by them. There is no doubt that without it, we too, like the infant left alone, would cease to grow, cease to develop, choose madness and even death.”—Leo Buscaglia, Love (via philphys)
The above article is an update. Her mother went to appeal to keep her out of the psychiatric ward and lost. She will be institutionalized because of her expression of her gender. She will be held until she conforms to male gender and then released to foster care, not her mother who was supporting her.
Please, if you haven’t signed the petition, sign it, reblog it, ask your friends to sign it. We’ve managed to get 40K signatures for a pageant model, we’ve only gotten 11K for a little girl about to have her life ruined. Lets get on the ball and spread the word.
No, I don't want to make friends. I'm always someone's "special friend" until they get tired of the exhaustion from having to betray my loyalty, dedication and affection with promise of love...
Just before they say “…but we can still be friends.”
Followed by their infinite silence
And complete and utter detachment from my life,
I can’t do this silly funs and games shit anymore. I want something, someone… Just to fucking stay. For once. To TRY even half as hard as I do to express adoration for the other… To WANT to be with me… To actually find me interesting and wonderful.
I’m too scared to consider the idea of growing attached to someone and having them become something that potentially could crush me and make all of the beautiful revelations I have made crumble into insignificance…
Will I ever feel safe again? I just want to be okay with myself and have someone who not only wants me to love them, but to love myself as well…
Acid. LSD. Trippy. Hallucinations. Reality. Fantasy. Or heightened sensitivity to reality?
Every time I inhale and then exhale I feel like my energy feild ebbs and flows. Like a breathing aura. Like. The feeling slowly subsides and trickles away and I feel as though I’m sober… I get relaxed when I close my eyes and focus on sleep and feel like I’m pulsating or… Rocking or… Like I can trace my own blood flow through my veins… And then I open my eyes again to a new scene and its like a movie all over again. My skin feels light. Like I just had layers and layers of caked on resedue from past negativity melt away.
When tripping your face off on acid, do NOT say to yourself:
"You know what would be really Fucked up? If you started thinking about the movie ‘Mirrors’ knowing you just closed yourself into a closet sized bathroom in which you cannot look away from the mirror right the fuck above your head while you piss. WAIT. FUCK. WHY DID YOU THINK THAT. FUUUUUU-"
Or willfully watch the Whimsyshyre video from D3.
Unless you’re Fucked up in the head like me and think “hahahahah look at all the slaughtered cute shit. It’s just cute carnage EVERYWHERE.”
