parents who stay in loveless, broken marriages sure do make great homes for children
depression is when you don’t really care about anything
anxiety is when you care too much about everything
and having both is just like whatHaving both is staying in bed because you don’t want to go to school and then panicking because you don’t want to fail. Having both is wanting to go see your friends so you don’t lose them all, then staying home in bed because you don’t want to make the effort. Having both is insanely hard and sucks to deal with.
"why are you crying"
"because I have to do thing and it’s really overwhelming"
"then don’t do thing, or do it later or something"
[five minutes later]
"why are you hyperventilating"
"because I feel guilty about not doing thing"
"then do the thing"
a self portrait
I get the same question a lot. They just want to use as examples to make them feel better in their crusade against religion. If they are non religious, not only are they free thinkers, but theyre also cool for looking out for gay people. We’re props.
ffs questions like this give me the shits i dont wanna derail but it’s like me and my relationship wit hinduism, like you can find major flaws in the institution while finding your own salvation through your own reading and engagement of your faith
yes! you’re not derailing at all, i specified lgbt christians because that’s the drama this person is trying to bait me into but like people really need to recognize that no institution is 100% oppressive or liberatory. there are people from every single marginalized group inside every single religion’s structure, and going “fuck religion” or whatever is totally pointless if your actual goal is lifting up lgbt people, women, people of color, whatever.
Anonymous asked: how can you support the catholic church when you are a bisexual woman??
i haven’t been to mass in months, have never given a dime to the church, and most of the time i’m talking about catholicism i’m talking about how fucked up the church is
i’m fucking OVER people telling lgbt christians that we have to ~keep in mind how oppressive our churches are like that’s news to us. we are hurt by the church too. why even ask me this? did you think you were going to make me have some kind of light bulb moment? that i’ve just never thought about all of the ways the rcc doesn’t want me? or wondered why i even bother? go away. you need jesus.
i just realized that playlist is extra funny because literally all of tegan’s songs on the con are about being in love with a straight girl
