DESTROY ME IT’S THE PERFECT GIFT
do you remember the first time you were called annoying?
how your breath stopped short in your chest
the way the light drained from your eyes, though you knew your cheeks were ablaze
the way your throat tightened as you tried to form an argument that got lost on your tongue.
your eyes never left the floor that day.
you were 13.
you’re 20 now, and i still see the light fade from your eyes when you talk about your interests for “too long,”
apologies littering every other sentence,
words trailing off a cliff you haven’t jumped from in 7 years.
i could listen to you forever, though i know speaking for more than 3 uninterrupted minutes makes you anxious.
all i want you to know is that you deserve to be heard
for 3 minutes
for 10 minutes
for 2 hours
there will be people who cannot handle your grace, your beauty, your wisdom, your heart;
mostly because they can’t handle their own.
but you will never be
and have never been

This made me cry. And the worst part? When I read “13” I went, “Wow, that old? My entire grade called me annoying and stupid and weird from the age of 6.” I realized how bad it was all over again, and it hurt. I can’t believe how bad it got sometimes, and how deeply ingrained into me it’s become. Fuck bullying, man. Fuck it forever.
Instead of me having to explain why I don’t like rape jokes, how about you explain why you find them funny.
you can either watch a whole tv series in a day or die trying
Oh, I know I have it better than a lot of would-be comics buyers, and that’s what worries me. I’ve had it with the self-appointed gatekeepers in comics.
