when I try to tell people why I don't particularly agree with gender questions or sexuality questions it's because I don't agree with people needing a term to pigeon hole themselves. Words may be a swift, but often cutting comfort, and I rather take the void in all it's infinity- because the void may be dark, but the darkness is not evil. The darkness simply is creation waiting to happen.
In the dark anything can happen- the universe is infinity; and infinity is nothing to be afraid of, rather, shape it to what you wish, what you desire... therefore the blanket of the Void is simply nothing yet everything- it is the question, it is the answer; I will never accept a simple word, a simple question, as the basis of my existence, of my living. And I simply won't allow myself to pigeon hole another, to cut them off from the void, from Creation itself. I will not cut somebody to pieces unless they warrant it, not if they ask.
So live like you mean it, and don't fret the small questions. Stumbling blocks are meant to grow you, not be a hindrance for years.
And if you find the people around you don't accept you, get new ones. They are simply leaves on the wind, meant to blow away as time comes and goes. Do not mistaken them for branches and roots, who stay.
I do not fear the world nor it's acceptance or disapproval. Living my life the way others want me to is not living at all. We have one life, one soul, this chance, this moment, I will not squander it away just because somebody hates me. That one singular moment of hatred will not compare to the life span I will live.
