REGARDING THE ANON HATE:
I was on my tumblr just now and I saw this. I thought you'd all want to read it.
Here it is:
Dear Anonymous a haters (AH),
Please stop. Think about what your doing. Stop reading this and think.
Really? In what sick and twisted universe do you consider this acceptable? You are telling people to kill themselves. Do you know how that feels? Are you doing this because someone did it to you? I am telling you now, I know how it feels. I know what it's like to be kicked at when you're already down. I know how much it hurts to be called worthless. I know what it's like to be told to kill myself. And you know what? It. Does. Not. Feel. Good.
People are amazing. Think about it. Steve Jobs, Alexandar Grahm Bell, Michel Jackson, Amelia Earheart; all of these people have changed the world in countless ways. What if that girl that you persuaded to commit suicide was the one who could find the cure for the cancer, the kind that your mom has? What if that boy that you told to cut is your future husband?
What if all of these people have lives, family, and friends that care about them, and need them, and try so hard to keep them happy? They do. What if their little brother walked into their room tomorrow to find them dead with slit wrists? It happens. People care about other people. That's how we should be. We should see past whatever differences we have, we shouldn't hurt each other from threats to their safety and sanity! WE SHOULD NOT TELL THEM TO KILL THEMSELVES!
They have families. People care about them. They are no different from you and me. We are all people. Shouldn't that be the only thing that matters?
So what if they're in a fandom? Big deal. They can like TV shows and books. So what if they've self-harmed before? They're still human and they're strong enough to make it this far.
The way I see it, AHs are cowards. You're afraid. You have an opinion, but you're too scared to admit to it. These people are the same. They have opinions. They like Sherlock, or Supernatural, or Harry Potter. BUT THEY ARE NOT AFRAID! They aren't afraid to be scorned at, they aren't afraid of hate until this group showed up, telling innocent Fangirls and Fanboys to do the unthinkable, and to kill themselves.
How does that make you feel? How does it feel to know that you've killed someone?
Think about it.
I'm not saying this to make you self-harm, and I'm not doing this to show the entire world. I'm doing this to make a difference in someone's life. You could save someone's life, for goodness sake!
So what are you going to do about it? Are you going to sit there and watch people take their lives, or are you going to save them? Think about this the next time you post that sort of crap.
