- don’t be angry at yourself when anxiety/depression flares up. it isn’t your fault and no one blames you and if they do they’re pieces of shit.
- don’t orbit around your perceived value so much. you’re not the sum total of what you produce.
- don’t let yourself wonder why people love you. that’s not how it works. there are not stark, individual reasons that a person can enumerate about why they love you. it’s the entire, unique combination of what and who you are.
In light of the recent rise in racist attacks on Muslims (particularly Muslim women) in Australia since the new Terror laws were created and the killing of Abdul Numan Haider, I would just like the make one thing very, very clear.
Australia is using (forms of) terror tactics domestically, in response to terrorism that is not happening in Australia or to Australia, to try and quash any potential ISIL-related terrorism that might be happening within our borders.
After the 'terror-raids' in Sydney the other week, in which 800 “anti-terror” police officers stormed the houses of Muslims suspected of being involved in terrorism, only two men were arrested, and only one was actually charged. (The link above is to a live blog from ABC news detailing how the 900 police in both Sydney and Brisbane have so far arrested 15 people suspected of terror offences. More raids were carried out today in Melbourne, Victoria, and so far one man has been taken into custody.)
Just let that sink in though. 800 police officers to charge 1 man who may not have even committed a crime. In a country where we haven’t had a single terror attack related to ISIL and no terror attacks domestically since the year 2000 (the Australian embassy in Jakarta was bombed in 2004, but that killed 11 Indonesians, not Australians). In fact, the most significant terror attacks post-2000 that have killed Australians were the Bali Bombings of 2002 and 2005, which were not targeted at Australia.
If you see ANY Muslim being racially targeted, you have a responsibility to get help or be help to stop it. If you hear ANYONE, including your family or friends, praising the actions of the Australian Police or the Australian Government, you educate them.
What we are doing is blatantly racist, and far more like terrorism than anything ISIL is doing in Australian territory.

Surely something of this magnitude should be news worthy. It’s violating people’s rights! Just because it’s not in a ‘Western’ country doesn’t mean it’s any less important.
"People should not be afraid of their Governments. Governments should be afraid of their people."
protect queer gamers. protect their queer characters. protect their queer headcanons. protect their voices and give them a space to raise them safely.
because another person sneering about how they aren’t special and are just like them (“them” meaning straight people) is the last thing this fandom needs from someone with a large amount of followers. though, honestly, I’m not really surprised.
