I THINK NOT
- don’t ever feel bad for asking me to tag a trigger
- i do not care what the trigger is
- i will tag it for you
- you have legitimate reasons to be triggered by it
- and i am not one to question those reasons
- so just send me an ask
- anonymous if you’re scared
- and i will tag it all the time in future
- your wellbeing is worth twenty extra seconds of my time at least
Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
posts like this piss me off because it’s like “i don’t need financial security someone give me a trophy”. the people that have this mentality usually have never actually grown up poor or seen their loved ones suffer poverty. if your biggest qualm is “my parents won’t like it” you’re lucky.
lol like “open a yarn shop!!” you need to be completely blinded by privilege in order to have that line of thinking. like excuse me while i pull money out of my ass that i could use for rent or you know, food and medicine, in order to open a goddamn yarn shop, because you know, it’s so easy to open a business and pay the rent for it and the other expenses.
i personally don’t want to be an artist so this isn’t personal to me, but i am sure that there are individuals out there who want to be artists but can’t, and discrediting them for chasing “scraps of paper” is so damn disrespectful. if you have actually experienced hardship you’d know that those scraps of paper make the difference between your loved ones waiting 16 hours to see a doctor in the ER or have a hot meal or go to college. you’re not better than anyone for chasing your dream, you’re just lucky that you have that opportunity. determination can only get you so far unless you wanna starve to death and if you don’t see that then congrats on your privilege, enjoy it! also “it doesn’t take much to live comfortably”??? you’re hilarious.
