I'm Anna, a panromantic pansexual androgynous (mostly female, other days genderless - but I use "she" pronouns for simplicity) sophomore in high school. I'm a Christian. My parents say I'm liberal; I merely say I'm a human rights activist.
I am in the following fandoms: Les Misérables, Fahrenheit 451 (does it even have one?), Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, and Les Misérables; Monty Python, Les Misérables, Ferris Bueler's Day Off, The President's Analyst, Disney movies, and Les Misérables; Les Misérables, next to normal, Catch Me If You Can, and Wicked; Sherlock (BBC's version), Dr. Who (despite not watching it...), Graceland, and Criminal Minds.
Finally, Aaron Tveit is my celebrity crush, Enjolras is my literary crush/favorite character ever, and OTP of all OTPs ever to exist is e/R. (George Blagden approves this message.)
I did not make the portrait, by the way. It is by AL-lamp on deviantArt... who actually is here on Tumblr as Aladdin Lamp. *If you don't want this here, I'll take it down, I promise.*
BTW, the hashtag as the blog's name? It's a thing from my school's play.
My therapist: Look at nature. Look at flowers. We never walk into our garden and say "Oh wouldn't that flower be so much more pretty if it were taller? Or red instead of pink?" No, we don't. Because nature was created perfect just as it is. And so are we. We are part of nature, we are how we're meant to be, we are perfect just as we are.
Imagine you wake up with your favourite character beside, still asleep. You’re about to get up, but they pull you back into bed, wrapping their legs around you and whispers “Don’t go.”
So I told my mom that I was asexual, and she didn’t believe me. She told me I had a hormone problem, and took me to get checked for tumors.
Please reblog this if you are asexual, or believe that it is possible for one person to not feel sexual attraction to either gender.
(I kinda wanna show her up)
But I can’t help but ask: would she be less of a victim, less of a child, or less of a human being if her famed early romance hadn’t been with Peter, but with her female friend Jaque? If the answer is yes— that Anne Frank’s story would be less tragic had she been known to date girls— then perhaps we haven’t moved far past the bigoted days of the Holocaust.
Anne Frank was a child who, like so many others, had dreams of love, family, and a satisfying career. All of these hopes were severed before she even reached age 16. Does it really make any difference if the life of Anne Frank’s future involved boyfriends, girlfriends, or both? Her bisexuality, whether a phase or a permanent component of her emotional infrastructure, was part of her budding identity. To ignore that aspect of her personality is to posthumously deny her the right to individualism and self-expression.
I’m going to go out on a limb and say this isn’t what we’re - or, at least I’m - doing.
We’re/I’m celebrating another bi rolemodel. We all know she suffered an incredible amount; we’re just talking about a new part of her we didn’t know about before.
We’re also lamenting bi erasure. If they’re going to give her the honor of publishing her diary, the least they could do is include all of what she has to say. In fact, it’s the people who don’t talk about her bisexuality who are destroying a part of who she was and forcing her, a victim of being socially unacceptable, to conform to what is socially acceptable today.
I don’t think anybody’s fetishizing her. She was a thirteen year old girl who suffered an incredible amount and remained positive through the trials she faced. The least the world owes to her is to recognize who she truly was - her sexuality included.
(Also, I’ve seen NOBODY consider the Holocaust that way.)
