#Repost @kirstenvangsness ・・・ #spiritday @glaad is today and here is @aishatyler And I talking about it because it is a beautiful, important day. My elementary/junior high school life was pretty wrought with name calling, locker head smashes, trash-canning (that’s when someone puts you head first with your binder and books into a trash can and you get a visceral experience of garbage) and the like. I was a weirdo, I was in a larger body, I was bespectacled and I was queer. This cocktail of what makes a little KV contributed to me being a really good candidate to be bullied. As an adult: I remain a weirdo, who sometimes wear contacts, who sometimes/sometimes not lives in a largeresque body and is queer identified. I don’t get trash canned anymore but many kids right now are having an awful time of it like that and then some. Today is the day we all collectively say: we see you, we have your back, do whatever you need to take care of yourself and let’s all heal this trauma of the bullied and the bullies together. I hug you from this computer machine to yours. Deep breath, your spirit is it’s very own singular sparkle, guard it and know you have a absolute right to your truth and experience. PS thank you @amandapalmer for one of the best lyrics “fear makes you cruel” that I say in said video and didn’t site her.
