I’m actually really fucking upset by the anti-ace brigade’s reaction to the Trevor Project’s including asexuality.
Weeks ago I couldn’t feel safe calling a hotline because, even though I am trans and that’s a significant part of those tensions/my fear of being kicked out, I didn’t want to run into the asshole who didn’t think my sexuality was legitimate/be forced into an educator’s position and I couldn’t tell myself it wouldn’t happen.
I also have issues convincing myself I’m allowed to use resources like that. I’m terrified that I’m going to use them while someone else needs them more, even when I’m seriously thinking about hurting myself.
Telling anyone that they’re not allowed to have that tiny sliver of “there’s someone who will listen” is so completely not cool I can’t even describe it.
… yeah. It’s bedtime as soon as I stop shaking.
