(asian body positivity because people have the misconception we are all naturally thin and tiny because it fits their orientalist vision of the demure, obedient, and cute asian woman)
It’s possible that she’ll become a better person, but there will always be dickheads in this world. Sadly. And I’m sorry your roommate atm is one of them. Just know that are plenty of people who do know better and are willing to learn.
I know. :) I’ve tried to make sure she has a few ideas in her head to stop her from staying on the path she’s on. I’ve had to bite my lip at slut-shaming remarks all semester, but it was worth it to have someone to walk home with at night. We live pretty far from the city center. I just hope that i’ve helped her to be less judgmental—but I worry b/c I think she’s been a toxic influence on me as a result.
A slur is a slur. It doesn’t apply to just racism,it applies to all forms of discrimination. Faggot is still a slur and people of all races are gay. Your roommate is just a smallminded bigoted asshole who doesn’t want to be a better person. You tried
I’ve tried my past—and being passive and offering a few words of wisdom was really the best I could do. She’s a few years younger than me and I’m hoping that I planted a seed of wisdom. She tried to compare being afraid to say that a person is queer (AKA me) to proclaiming heterosexuality tonight…I’m just hoping that I planted a seed. That’s all I can hope for. All said and done, she’s been a good roommate…but I don’t appreciate the racism. Or the anti-feminism. : \ It’s been a long semester.
Never forget that you are the protagonist of your own story

And a possible love interest in some other peoples! 0u0
This might just be the single most inspiration thing I have ever seen on the internet.
You are also a supporting character to a lots of people’s stories. You might even be the kind stranger who unintentionally turns someone’s life around for the better.

This hits home far more than I’d ever really care to talk about….I could name a handful of people I was band aids for
i can relate that being said if i ever made anyone feel like a band aid before I am so fucking sorry because you are worth more
Today when I was waiting for the bus a man walked up to me and offered me drugs. He said excuse me all nice-like and everything. He was super polite about it and left right away when I said no. KNOW WHO DOESN’T DO THAT? THE MEN WHO CAT CALL. This is a strange world to live in.
