Being bisexual is basically like living in limbo
Dear World, This post is basically just a stream of consciousness. It's word vomit. It's not pretty. But it's been on my mind, so read on if you'd like. I'm bisexual.

I’m Outing My Rapist
Content warning: discussion of rape and abuse. This is long overdue. I wasn't ready before, which is why it's taken so long, but now I have to get this off my chest.

Do You Really Know Them?
I find it interesting that we say, “You never really know a person,” after some awful parting of ways or betrayal. It’s as though we believe that people live in a constant state of deception, clouding our vision from who they truly are. Such manipulative people exist, to be sure, but I don’t believe it’s...
