Allies face so much cisphobia and reverse racism I’m going to come out as an ally ally. They need allies too. I’m going to add another A to the acronym for being an ally of allies. Everyone stand together for our allies in their time of need. I have a straight friend.
The saddest thing is that most people will find this humorous instead of serious. We’re standing right beside one another, and yet we text others instead of actually speaking to each other. Have you ever sat down and thought about how uncomfortable we now are around one another that it’s so bad that we literally pretend to be texting someone when we’re not, just so it’s less awkward to stand beside people? What’s supposed to strengthen our bonds has taken away from it. It’s time to take our faces out of our phones and notice the world, give a kind gesture to someone, and go SEE your friends instead of just texting them.
I’m going to let that sink in.
People have ALWAYS been this uncomfortable - it’s just tech has finally caught up. People are weird, man.
