general psa: it is totally ok to experiment with your identities

onthegreatsea:

  • there is nothing wrong with going through phases while you try and figure out who you are
  • there is nothing wrong with being confused about who you are. at any point in your life
  • there is nothing wrong with saying you were x identity a year ago and today saying you are something else.

    it does not mean you lied

    it does not mean you were doing it to be trendy

    it means you changed

thats what people do over time: they change

and that’s ok

"If you haven’t heard of the Bechdel Test, it’s a test of gender representation in the media. It has three criteria: a) there must be at least two women, who b) talk to each other, c) about something other than a man. Only half of all movies pass this test, most often because the female characters never talk to each other; they are defined by their relationships with men. By contrast, female characters and their relationships with each other are so central to the story of Orphan Black that [it] not only passes the Bechdel Test, but fails the reverse of the [it]." (x)

"The Me Generation," as our predecessors call it, is the generation that cares about nothing but ourselves, which is wrong, because we have life so much easier.

"But young people these days have Google and the texting or whatever. What else could they possibly be struggling with?" — practically any older, middle-class person in present America

How about the shithole of a government and dumping grounds of an environment you seem so intent on leaving us to deal with, OLDER GENERATION.
