I just want to share this with you all.
Luke McKinney recently did an article on Cracked where he ripped apart and attacked the sexism/racism/privileged entitlement comments straight white men express, in response to an article John Scalzi did on Kotaku, elaborating on Luke’s statement that being a straight male is sexuality’s lowest difficulty setting. I normally don’t check out Cracked a lot, or even particularly like many articles on there, but that article was an exception.
In particular, one comment posted on the Kotaku article (and one which got addressed on the Cracked article) really hit me:
I don’t believe people have any problems with sexuality, but my opinions on transgender are so repellent I can’t even say them on the internet.
Now, this comment hits me particularly hard for a few reasons. I’ve heard stuff like this on the internet and in real life (because hate isn’t confined to hiding behind an “anonymous” mask). I’m not a “real person”, or how sex and gender are both the same, so I’m “a disgusting fake female”, or a “tranny bitch”. And somehow, it means I’m not a true “video gamer” (which I won’t ever understand, but okay). Basically, it makes me feel less than human.
To read the article and see each comment ripped apart and put in its place makes me happy. It’s the voice I’ve always wanted to express but never could. I messaged Luke my gratitude, not thinking he’d reply (cause really, how many messages do these guys get every day?), and he replied back with this.
Remember, when people say you don’t matter they’re really talking about themselves. Get on with going, doing, being, and leave a trail you can look back on with pride.
True words of inspiration. Read the article.
i really connect with this gif like. his face is a constant frown. he looks disappointed by things. perhaps he is disappointed in life? or his friends? maybe his parents? maybe himself? but there’s nothing the kid can do about it and so he turns around.. there’s nothing he can do.. a total eclipse of the heart…..
i feel the bright blue sky alludes to some foreshadowing. better times for the kid. he won’t always be disappointed. one day he’ll smile. things are dark for him now, but they won’t always be. the sky reminds us that no matter how bad things get… it won’t always be bad forever.
the shadowy figure. i think it as a little devil. perhaps its trying to coax him into sinning? but the kid is devout and pure.. he turns away from the devil. this is proof he is a good kid no matter how disappointed he may seem.
