Anti-Homophobia/Biphobia/Transphobia Day

Hello world,

Yeeees I knoooow I haven’t blogged in aaaaggggeees. Sorryyyy. Anyway.

Yesterday (17th May) was international anti homophobia/biphobia/transphobia day. I didn’t realise until yesterday evening, when I wasn’t meant to be on my phone, so I couldn’t blog about it, but here I am today! This really excited me, because I was like oh my god there is a day against people who are against me and like yesssssss! So you can find out all about IDAHOT (to be honest I’m not really sure what that stands for but oh well) here, and oh that was stupid of me. It stands for International Day Against Homophobia oh wait no it doesn’t. Aaarrrgggghhhh. Okay the exams destroyed my brain.

IM GETTING OFF TOPIC SOMEONE HELP ME.

Anyway. Prepare for a VERY long ramble. This is what I have to say about homophobes.

I don’t understand. Why can’t people love each other, even if they are the same gender? Love is love, right? And as for transphobia, what is so wrong about being yourself? Because of all of you against LGBT people, 44% of us have considered suicide. Including me. 41% of transgender people attempt suicide. Everyone always tells us to be ourselves, to be confident with who we are. Everyone who is LGBT is trying to be themselves, like you all told us to. But no, people don’t seem to like that. Between 10 and 20% of LGB people (no I didn’t miss off a T) attempt suicide. These percentages are staggering, compared to the heterosexual (straight) suicide rates, which are (I couldn’t find a percentage) roughly 500,000 a year (in America). LGBT people are more likely to report high levels of drug and alcohol abuse. And this is mostly because of bullying and teasing from homophobic people. LGBT people are more than twice as likely as their heterosexual peers to commit suicide, and more attempts are therefore successful.

So after all that, homophobes, can you see how much you’re affecting people’s lives? It’s hard enough for them without you, but you’re just there making their lives so much worse.

I know that people in my school avoid me (I’m assuming it’s because I’m bi, and not because I’m just generally a bitch) and yeah, okay, I’ll admit it. It hurts. But I don’t really care what you think of me. I am who I am. I don’t wake up every morning to impress you. I can’t help being me, okay? WE DON’T CHOOSE TO BE LGBT. WHY THE HELL WOULD WE DO THAT? We don’t wake up one morning and be like hey, I’m gonna have a crush on someone of the same gender as me today. No.

Okay enough. I’m just gonna end up making you think way too hard and then your head might explode and I don’t want that happening, but just so you know yes I would come to your funeral.

Lots of love,

“Nobody likes a really negative person”

Hello world,

I just wanted to apologise for the amount of depressing posts; I promise there will be more uplifting ones soon!

Earlier today, I was arguing with someone (again) and then out of nowhere, someone else (I’m not going to mention names because she would literally kill me) joins in. But she never actually joined in. She looked at me and said:

“Nobody likes a really negative person.”

Like, okay? How am I meant to respond to that? I get that it’s a really pointed comment because I’m depressed and all, but really? You’re actually going to go so far as to say that BECAUSE I’m depressed, no one is going to like me? I have friends thank you very much. Although I’m here pointing out the flaws in this sentence, it actually really hurt me. Okay, I get you don’t like me, I get you don’t understand me, but really? That’s just straight up mean. And if it wasn’t aimed at me, why  would she have said it?

Basically this was to say that things you do and say have a consequence. Everything does. But that comment hurt me, and I’m pretty sure it would hurt anyone. If your goal in life is to go round hurting people, then go say that to everyone.

I’m sorry if you think I’m completely overdramatising this, but it’s my opinion. Feel free to comment yours!

Love you!

30 things to do when you’re bored

Hello world,

I am in a very hyper mood today, so if this post is a bit weird, then yeah that’s why…

Anyway. AGES ago I made a website called 30 things to do when you’re bored. I didn’t tell anyone about it, and it was made on this website maker thing that no one’s ever heard of. So no one looked at it. The website doesn’t exist any more because I couldn’t be bothered to pay (because no one saw it) to make it last for more than six months. So here are some of the things to do when you’re bored (I saved them all in a word document 😊).

  1. Annoy your brother/sister. If you don’t have a sibling annoy your parents.
  2. Play a game. Yay? 
  3. Draw a picture. When I was eight I thought I was really good at drawing. If you don’t want to depress yourself with your bad drawings (unless you are really good at drawing) don’t do this one…
  4. Blink wildly for about 30 seconds and then close your eyes for an amazing light display. I was a very strange eight year old…
  5. Sing at the top of your voice until everyone in your family is deaf. Yep, very strange…
  6. Watch TV. This one isn’t particularly helpful, because if you’re bored, chances are you’ve been banned from TV.
  7. Make a website. That no one will ever see…
  8. Make a PowerPoint/ Word document. Now it’s more like: watch YouTube or Netflix…
  9. Make a photo frame. Fun!
  10. Convince a sibling you can do magic without actually doing any. This doesn’t work when your sibling gets older. They will begin to doubt your magical abilities.
  11. Shop. Unless you hate shopping. Then don’t shop. Because you hate shopping. So that would be silly.
  12. Make a magic potion. I was a messed up child…
  13. Try not to think about penguins. I used to do this all the time and it’s actually really funny. Basically it’s a competition against your friend to see who can not think about penguins for the longest. Confused? Yeah me too…
  14. See how long you can hold a note. This is likely to annoy everyone.
  15. Scratch yourself. Please don’t do this. It hurts.
  16. Try being a robot. Like 14.
  17. Rate people passing you by (1-10). Judgemental much.
  18. Pretend to be a car. Like 14 and 16.
  19. Send people weird (not rude) emails. I’m literally just copying off my word document and I actually put ‘not rude’ in brackets…
  20. Repeat everything someone says in an Italian accent. Why are all the even numbers after 14 likely to annoy people????
  21. Phone a friend. Well done eight year old pixiecake for thinking you were smart.
  22. Burn old pieces of scrap paper with a magnifying glass. And also, while you’re at it, why don’t you just burn down wherever you live as well. Tut tut tiny pixiecake.
  23. Try to sound Welsh/Irish. So now the odd numbers are becoming annoying as well?!
  24. Put a banana on your head and see how long it takes for someone to notice. This will rapidly decrease your popularity rates.
  25. Perfect your Scottish accent. WILL THE ODD NUMBERS PLEASE STOP TRYING TO ANNOY PEOPLE. THAT IS EVEN’S JOB😂😂.
  26.  Name a cookie, and tell everyone how it had a moustache, but the moustache ran away. Messed up child.
  27. Stare at the back of someone’s head until they turn around. I thought I asked the odd numbers to please stop trying to annoy people…
  28. Try not to laugh for 5 minutes. But then you end up being bored for 5 minutes…
  29. Go to a supermarket, pick up a banana and complain to a cashier that their watermelons are too yellow. No comment.
  30. Have a competition with someone to see who is less competitive. I swear this doesn’t actually work…

So there is a list of things that eight year old me put together for some unknown reason. I thought I would share it with you because I was clearing out my Dropbox the other day and I found it and I’m like ok, before I trash this I have to blog it.

Sending love… (I’m trying to think of a better way to say bye, but I haven’t yet)
