I know I'm a little late to this, but I really love this. I love that you took a stand, I love your art.
Honestly, I'm just really glad this event exists. I wore a purple jacket to Uni yesterday in order to comemmorate the day but I wish I was brave enough to tell people that I'm also wearing it because I'm bisexual. I used to get teased and bullied in high school because some people suspected but I've never been able to actually confirm it in school. And my family has absolutely no idea and I'm afraid to tell them because they're so against the LGBTQ community. I certainly don't want to get bullied by others, but especially not my own family.
And I'm sorry I'm venting on your page but I just feel lonely all the time with this situation because only two people in the entire world know. My best friend that had to move away and my psychologist.
So thanks for this little ray of hope that you drew. Is it all right if I print this art and post it on my bedroom wall? As a reminder to keep hope?
I really love your art (unfortunately I haven't been able to keep up with it because I haven't been on deviant art for a long time) but you are one of my top 10 DA artists.
As long as your family loves you it shouldn't be a problem to them that you're bi. And seriously, what bullies say have no meaning at all. It says nothing about you, but a million things about them. So listening to them is a huge waste of time. And you don't have to feel so lonely about it, there is sooo many people out there that supports you and wants you to be happy. Be confident with yourself and it won't matter what others think, because there will always be people with hateful opinion and that's really thier problem. You can't be happy with a hateful mind! I'm very glad my you like my art and of course you can put it on your wall Thank you so much, your support means a lot c':
I wish the family situation was just a matter of them loving me. It's just that my family is heavily involved in church, my granfather is a pastor, my father and cousin a preacher, and so many other family members. And they always such hateful things. This summer my cousin and I were arguing over the fact that people treat those who love their same sex as second-class citizens, and whether or not they should have the same rights as heterosexual people like to be able to marry and adopt. And /everyone/ in my family sided with my cousin and said that I was going against what was right by supporting LGBTQ rights and was anti-hate. They don't even know I'm bi and they act like that, imagine if they knew. And I don't like to imagine it. They think it's something wrong, or some demon, or something that you choose. I wish I could make them understand. I love my family and I don't want them to hate me and look at me with disgust.
Thank you so much for listening to me, and again, I'm sorry for venting on here. I only wish I knew more people I could talk with about this.
(I printed this artwork and now it hangs on my wall on a spot where it's one of the first things I when I wake up and one of the last things I see when I go to sleep. A beacon of hope! Thank you~)
It makes me so disapointed that people even think it's okay to look down on people >> To even put someone in the situation you're in, afraid of being hated by the ones that matter most to one. Because of some hateful mindset they have, that was thought from some book? I wish people could learn to think for themselves... Sorry for ranting back xD But it makes me really, really upset... I'm sorry for the situation you're in, you can always send me a note if you ever wanna talk about something!
And thank you for the offer, I think I'll take you up on that someday. Because honestly I cannot deal with the irrational hate that people have for this. And I hate feeling lonely but I'm glad there's nice people out there like you. If only I knew some nice people that lived nearby :/
Feel free to rant ^^ Ranting sometimes helps us feel better.
