This is my 5th or something attempt at painting in three days and I’m finally happy with the result. I still have problems with picking right colours though.
Also, I have a love-hate relationship with horizontal flip -.-
making my way downtown, walking fast
hey nico wanna talk about it
It’s not problematic. It is realistic.
Listen here friend, lemme tell you something fun: Not everyone gets to come out on their own free will. Not everyone is comfortable with themselves when they come out. Not everyone gets to prepare themselves to come out.
I came out because I was bullied a shitload. I thought coming out would stop it (and to be honest? It kinda did). I came out when I still wasn’t even sure of my sexuality. I just knew I wasn’t straight. My mom found out and proceeded to tell my whole family without consulting me first about it. I was not only forced out, but everyone came to know before I was even comfortable with myself.
The reason I’m sodefensive of Nico’s coming out scene is because I can connect to it. For once in my life it wasn’t one of those “I felt like it was time so I came out!” scenes. It was a “I had no choice or else I was fucked.” I loved that. I loved it. I loved the fact I finally found something that understood what I went through.
Nico’s coming out story was not problematic. It was relatable to the LGBT+ children who never got the chance to come out on their own and had it thrust upon them in one way or another. It’s a representation of a minority that never gets any light. Coming out isn’t always sunshine and rainbows.
This is extremely true. ^^^
I want to be able to fill this jar up as much as possible. I want to prove that they really aren’t just people on the internet. They have done more than just entertain. They have truly helped people.
Update! Before a million people message me, if this keeps getting notes, I will get another jar. Right now I’ve got 6136 urls in the jar.
P.S. I don’t mind if you want to reblog again to have your url in there more than once. :)
