"Overgrown" is such a silly word because those plants haven't grown too much they've just grown! They've just done what comes naturally to them & it's only humans that have decided that nature is too much for us! Life shouldn't be put in human limits, plants grow and grow and grow! Only humans think plants can grow too much
I hope autumn is treating everyone well! I know it can be a stressful time of the year due to school, family obligations, money, seasonal depression, and other holiday stressors, but just know that a few months of the year are not definitive of who you are, and things can be made better even if they are can't be the best right now. I believe in you~
So it's Ace Awareness week or smthn, so here's a shoutout to all my ace peeps who are sex positive. It's never talked about when we want sexual relationships but how fucked it feels to not experience sexual attraction.
So shout out to all of those who get it and understand. Sometimes its very confusing to be ace and that's alright~
its almost over but happy ace awareness week!!! some reminders:
💜 aces have always been and will always be lgbtq+
💜 yes, even straight aces and cis aces
💜 aces are not cringy, bored, attention-seeking or homophobic
💜 aces are not all white
💜 aces are not confused kids. talk to elders in the community and read up on a-spec historical figures!
💜 aces are not selfishly taking a piece of the nonexistent resource pie
💜 aces face unique struggles that must be recognized. the community's not oppression olympics
