Sometimes you go through things that seem huge at the time, like a mysterious glowing cloud devouring your entire community.
While they’re happening they feel like the only thing that matters, and you can hardly imagine that there’s a world out there that might have anything else going on. And then the Glow Cloud moves on. And you move on. And the event is behind you.
And you may find that, as time passes, you remember it less and less—or not at all, in my case.
And you are left with nothing but a powerful wonder at the fleeting nature of even the most important things in life, and the faint, but pretty, smell of vanilla.
This is so important

I am so excited for the day where the LGB community is pleased w/ one fucking instance of media representation/public expression of support. Like actually, what will it be, when Jesus himself shines from the clouds & yells “God doesn’t hate fags”???? Cause if that sector of people was even a tiny bit as grateful as asexual & trans ppl are to be in the media at all maybe we wouldn’t feel like everyone was the fucking enemy all the time. Like I’m not saying u should accept something u don’t like bc “at least he/she is gay/a lesbian/bi” I just like maybe u don’t need to put it under a microscope. Every single fucking time. The world is changing, at least in some parts & I don’t think any of u guys are stopping to be happy about it. There are people in our community who can list the characters/celebrities they’ve identified with on one hand and were fucking thrilled to see that, even if some of them aren’t perfect. Maybe ur luckier than u think?
are you ready for another bad poem?
