The post:

I hate people complaining about the Day of silence because “They should be speaking out instead!!!11!!”

Not everyone lives in your magical fantasy land where queer people can speak out without consequence, where cishet people just patiently wait and listen to what LGBTQA+ people have to say

Some of us live in schools where the last trans girl to speak out got bullied until she had to leave the school

some of us still managed to receive a TON of homophobic slurs and shit thrown at us just because we chose to stay silent

some of us are queer people who just want to show other queer kids that they’re not alone

some of us chose to break our silence when we saw homophobia/transphobia while some of us don’t have that privilege

sorry i’m not a good enough activist apparently, sorry I take what little support and help I can get

and my "PS":

(P.S. If cishet allies are acting overly cocky for participating in day of silence then fucking call them out for it, don’t criticize the event because obnoxious allies co-opt it, quite frankly they tend to co-opt every queer/lgbtqa+ thing so why are you even surprised)
