I'm really sorry, I really wanted to try to do today's December Meme thing on time, but, like. I don't think it's going to happen tonight. (Going to try to make it happen tomorrow.) Instead I'm just going to vent for a bit.

I'm mad about Leelah Alcorn. I'm pissed and I'm livid and I absolutely despise that this happened to her. I'm especially upset because you know she can't be the only one; of course everyone on Tumblr knows because that's where her goddamn note is, so how many do you think don't get this opportunity to be heard?

If you haven't heard, I'm going to start you off with this link. (Same warnings apply.) Leelah Alcorn committed suicide because when she came out as trans to her parents they sent her to conversion therapy and other shit that did nothing whatsoever to help. Now they're still in denial and it seems that nothing that she wanted will happen; a lot of people on Tumblr are reblogging their support for the general reform she asked for in her goddamn note but how much will that ever really change?

I'm so pissed. I need to take a break from Tumblr because it's saturated with reminders about this and that's a great way to get in dangerous moods, but I can't bear the thought of staying silent so I should stay and reblog shit.

Lately there's this and there's a lot of stuff about police violence and that made me want to find ways to change the world. But I don't think I can. I don't think anyone can, but me least of all. I need to find a place where I can help people, even if it's tiny. Even if I can't talk to them directly. (That's probably for the best given what a shithead I am about people.) I need something to remember that the world isn't all asshats and douchewads, and I'm not sure what it'd take at this point.

There's too much stuff that I need to do in my own life. It's so hard to do anything, much less everything.
