I'm trash but like nice trash. Like when u have too much clutter so you throw some away. But like its all fun bits and bobs like a little model of a boat and a keyring collection. So like, I am endearing, but still trash.

This weekend, I was verbally attacked by a total stranger for being in a non-monogamous relationship. AT A HOUSE PARTY. IN MY OWN HOUSE.
One minute, we were innocently chatting about who we were dating and the next minute it was: ‘WHY DO YOU WANT HIM’ ‘NO, NO, NO, NO, NO. YOU ARE WRONG.’ ‘You are so beautiful, so intelligent and so interesting and you DESERVE A BOY OF YOUR OWN.’ I’m sorry but what the fuck
While the cis, straight girl in question was clearly trying to be sisterly and helpful, everything she said was so patronising.
I was then asked a series of intrusive and personal questions; I felt completely backed into a corner; it felt like facing the bullies at school all over again. But this encounter made me realise just how much work there is left to do if we are ever going to reach equality. Educating others on different genders, identities, sexualities, relationships and families has never been more important - because funnily enough, there is not just one way to live and there is not just one way to be happy. I am perfectly happy with my life just how it is and for someone to sit down next to me and tell me my relationship is bullshit and force me to defend it was the final straw. The way I love is a sacred thing to me.
The sheer amount of narrow-minded, ignorant and bigoted idiots in this world is just collosal - and we need to do something about it.
Everything I’ve ever done - my work, my writing - has always come from a place of love. But now I’m angry. This experience has just made me even more passionate. I will not shut up. I will not keep quiet in order to be ‘polite.’ I will stand up for myself.
I AM PANSEXUAL. I AM GENDERFLUID. I AM POLYAMOROUS. I AM PROUD. AND IF ANYONE’S GOT A PROBLEM WITH THAT, THEY CAN FUCK OFF.
