Many people in the past have asked me why i take explicit pictures like this one here.
"You'll regret it when you're older"
"There are creeps probably jaking off to you"
"You look slutty"
"Your parents are gonna be ashamed when they see this"
Let me tell you this now, yeah? I'm a legal adult. I can make decisions for myself. I don't need your or anyone else's approval on what i decide to do. I'm well aware that I will face judgement and that is fine, but before you judge my book by cover let me tell you a little something.
Displaying myself to the world like this is one of the MANY techniques I have learned when it comes to coping.
I use fiction (such as anime, manga, manhwa, art, etc.), taking risque pictures and posting them online, music, videogames, cosplay, drawing, & excessive cleaning (of one's self or places such as a bedroom) to cope with my: child molestation, borderline rape, sexual assault, abuse (physical/mental), depression, anxiety, anemia, GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease), and overall hardships that everyone goes through.
So SORRY if i happen to like reading abusive shit, SORRY that i post half nude pictures of myself, SORRY that I can't be validated in your Godlike eyes.
Actually, fuck you if you try and bring people down that have finally found a coping mechanism that works for them and it doesn't actually harm people (including themselves) or break the law.
(P.S. when i talk about harm, I mean ACTUALLY harming someone, not because you happened to find them on Tumblr and you disagreed with something they ship and you claim it somehow harms you when it actually doesn't)
SIDE NOTE: I don't want anyone's empathy/sympathy please! That's not what this post is about. It is so people can understand a bit better and also for an indirect "fuck off" to the people I mentioned that bring others down.
