Just now uploading my “Wave of Light” photo for International Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. This goes out to about half of the people I know, who are some of the strongest and bravest women and men I’ve ever met! And, of course, it also goes out to countless strangers, whose paths I’ve yet to cross. Whoever you are, wherever you are… I’m sending love to all of you, your lost (and living) little ones, and also to mine. Keep on keeping on, my lovelies… My ask is always open if you ever need a chat! xxx

As I look at this photo, the one of these two people whom I have so much love and respect for, and see their joy… I weep. But these aren’t tears of joy. I’m infinitely sad.
I want us to be able to celebrate John and Scott’s marriage like we would celebrate the marriage of any other two people. I want us to celebrate their union for the reason we celebrate others’ similar unions. One of my favourite things about John and Scott are how much they love each other and how evident that is whenever they’re together or talking about one another. I want their wedding to be a celebration of their love for another, rather than a victory. I want to live in a world where this isn’t new or exciting that two people in love can get married. I don’t want this to be revolutionary. How ignorant that it’s become just that.
Of course I’m excited that they do now have the legal right to marry, obviously. I’m just sad that this is even still a discussion or that someone had to grant them that right. If you can look at them and tell me a single, solitary reason why they don’t deserve the same rights and freedoms that they would have always had if one of them was female, then please un-follow me right now and remove yourself from my life. If you believe what you’re seeing here compromises the sanctity your or any other marriage, please seek counseling with your spouse and then follow the above instructions. I don’t need your breed of poison and ignorance anywhere near me.
This whole ‘debate’ is simple: If two consenting adults want to get married, they should be able to. That’s it. End of. There’s no secondary clause or qualifier. They’re happy, and people should be happy for them, not as celebrities, but as two human being who carved out a little bit of joy in an oft times desolate world. If you can’t get behind that, then kindly fuck off.

I agree with you, but i am happy for them, that they are married because they love each other. Marriage in any other purpose than love is just ridiculous. 

I wasn’t trying to suggest that you weren’t. It was just your post that happened to be the one where I said my peace. Sorry about that.
And I’m happy for them for those reasons, too. I just hate that there’s even a different reason to be happy about this. They shouldn’t have to share the spotlight with a marriage equality triumph, because this isn’t a fight we should be having to fight. It seems so much like a foregone conclusion that I can’t comprehend why we’re still struggling with it like we are.
Again, sorry for derailing your post. I just… have a lot of feelings on the matter.

Oh, wait, no no no. I’m not cross with you!
Of course you can speak your mind, sorry if I made it look as if I’m angry.
As I said: I agree with you.

Oh! I felt pretty genuinely bad when I thought that you thought I was accusing you of celebrating for the wrong reasons. Haha!
Don’t you love the internet, where tone and inflection don’t exist, and people can think they’re arguing when they’re actually in agreement? *sigh*

this is what heterophobia would look like if it was real. if you believe that heterophobia is a real thing that exists, please watch this because you will see that it simply doesn’t exist, that it never has and never will. 

tbh I think everyone should watch this anyway because it’s very clever and very powerful

Just press play.

I’ve needed a drink for like 3 hours but I’m too lazy to get up and cross the room.

Is it not enough that our names are nearly the same? Must we be the same in personal laziness and lack of motivation too?

I think we’ve found the plot for our film. It’s just us, sitting around and slowly dehydrating/starving to death because we’re too lazy to move.

Sounds like a plan. I’ll start on a script! :)

cloama asked: Hey, I'm so sorry I didn't talk to you more at the roundtable. I was honestly exhausted. I wanted to ask you about your writing. Don't worry I'll be stalking you later. btw, my fanspace is over at TeaAndSolitude.

Oh, darling… don’t even worry. I’m just glad to see you got home. I was worried about your taxi! *hugs*

I was exhausted too… and I probably shouldn’t have even GONE to the roundtable. My mental bandwidth was around ZERO! Ugh.

It was really a pleasure to meet you. I’m following your fanspace now too. Mine, of course, is Megg33k! <3 Thanks for messaging me. You’re welcome to talk to me about writing any time you like! :) You were perfect and lovely. Don’t ever doubt yourself!

All paths must end, even those that seem they never will. And, if not end, they will fork to become new paths… which is, in and of itself, an ending of sorts. Though relieving to know the bad can’t last forever, nor can the good. We can mourn it and look back at it fondly, but we can never quite reclaim it exactly as it once was. We must move forward and endure. And, though the bad is unpleasant, it is necessary. Without bad, how would we recognize and appreciate the good? There are two sides to every coin, and so it must be. To quote the Doctor, “The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice-versa, the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant.” Roads and paths are full of potholes and sharp turns and sometimes even fiery wreckage, but they are also the way we get from one place to another. And the hardest paths often lead to the most rewarding destinations. If you don’t even know where you’re going yet, then maybe your current path is actually about the journey itself. Perhaps your destination is yet to be determined by how you walk that path and the choices you make. Life is, essentially, the best ‘choose your own adventure’ book  you’ll ever experience. If you make wise and thoughtful decisions, the ending might just blow your mind. And, though I hate to be the one to mention it, the art is amazing!
