The thing that sucks about mental illness is that if you aren’t depressed enough, suicidal enough, bad enough, nobody cares. Nobody cares until you reach their standard, and that standard is when your problem is bad enough to effect them
The amount of people who can relate to this makes me equally incredibly sad and immensely angry
Anonymous asked: If the protagonist is queer, and the story doesn't revolve around romance, then why is the protagonist queer in the first place if it's largely irrelevant? I'm simply curious .
Because our lives are not defined by romance and sex and we deserve better and more diverse stories than that.
"If straight people don’t get to gawk over your sex lives then what’s the point of you existing?"
I’m both laughing and crying that anyone even asked this question without seeing how terrible that is, but also because representation for queer people has failed so relentlessly that it’s bred this idea that unless sex or romance is the topic of the story, queer people don’t need to be apart of it.
