Some BDSM is less like play rape and more like what would you do for a klondike bar
Except the Klondike bar is sex

Anonymous asked: So, I think you're a decent writer, but the amount of self-promotion on your blog is a major turn-off. If you're as talented as you seem to think you are, then let it show through your writing, and not through a million posts about your book. Your form is decent, but your vernacular is exceptionally poor, and you start with excellent flow, but seem to have difficulty carrying that the length of the poem. In short, more writing and improving, less promotions, please.
Oh boy. I know I should be more mature and not respond, but you caught me on a really bad night so here we go.
No, I won’t stop promoting my book.
Selling my book (and the books of the other authors involved with Where Are You Press) is my day job. That’s how I pay my bills. I need to do that in order to continue living. I cannot write or improve if I do not have a roof over my head. You do not have to buy the book or read my work if it bothers you.
I don’t know if I’m talented or not. I’m not really sure what that means and I don’t really care. I don’t know if I’m a good writer yet or when I will be, my basic plan is to just improve as much as I can until I’m dead.
On that note, I know my word choice is simple. That’s a conscious choice, not a lack of education. It makes my work more accessible, which is important to me.
So in short don’t come to me with your bullshit. Let me make my living and write how I want.
FCKH8, PETA, and Femen are the holy trinity of bad representation of good causes.
and Autism Speaks.
Brb. Crying for no reason.
Anonymous asked: Why do you give so much attention to the haters? They're not worth it.
It’s pretty simple really. A lot of folks out there have chronic illness. Invisible illness. Mental illness. The hateful messages that I get sent are very indicative to the kinds of things people with poor health hear all the time. And not just from strangers. From friends, family, and coworkers.
People ask me for advice on how to deal with people who question their illness. Who don’t believe them. Who think they are just being lazy. Who think they are burdening the people that care about them.
It is my hope that two things will happen.
First, I give some words that people with illness can use to help them handle these situations.
And secondly, I want to shine a light on this aspect of illness. Maybe I can help change the stigma associated with mental and chronic health issues.
These kinds of health issues don’t start and stop with taking medicine and dealing with doctors. Sometimes making those around you understand what you are going through can be just as frustrating as the condition itself. So every once and a while I post some of these messages I get so more people will understand this part of illness and the stigmas we must fight.
The Beatles owe soooooo much to teenage girls for their success like i’m pretty sure it was teenage girls who were screaming and fainting at shows and buying all those records and not old ponytailed dudes or moody teen boys with bad hair? and somehow everyone forgets that when they’re yelling about “real music” and putting down teen girls for the performers they get excited about. like whatever. I see you.
