im legitimately sorry if ive come off as hostile or anything in these debates or anything. this is just something that is really important to me and affects not only me but a good majority of my closest friends, and combined with how stressed out ive been lately in general and how much ive been seeing homophobic and transphobic garbage on here recently, its been a melting pot of pure anxiety and anger and even at my most clearheaded i still get worked up easily when people dont understand where im coming from.
granted, im not apologizing for my core viewpoints; i dont believe bigotry should be tolerated at all and im well within my rights to be instantly apprehensive of anyone who even tries to pull the "all views should be respected" card let alone who actually holds the actual views themselves because of the potential threat they may pose to my health and well-being, and im also well within my right to be angry about people telling me the very fiber of my being is somehow morally wrong based on a set of archaic beliefs and at people who dont help stand up for me against these people who try to keep me down like this.
i just want you to know that if i do start getting particularly rude and snarky and vicious with you during a long and important argument, i dont necessarily mean to. i just kinda naturally slip into that when it feels like someone isnt understanding me or is even flat out disregarding me, and combined with the anger i feel when someone tells me or my friends that we are somehow morally bankrupt for being gay or trans* or anything, its made me come off as rather nasty when trying to tell people that were not and it doesnt seem to be getting throughto them. im honestly trying my hardest to keep a clear head and check this stuff with my friends before responding, but sometimes my frustration gets the better of me and makes me come off as hostile and i hope you can forgive me for that.
love, ran-sama xoxo
