Your shadow is a confirmation that light has traveled nearly 93 million miles unobstructed, only to be deprived of reaching the ground in the final few feet thanks to you.

  • AnonymousWhy is it okay to identify as a female if you're male but not okay to identify as black if youre white/disabled if youre abled? Genuinely curious. Thanks
  • e-brat

    okay if you identify as female you ARE female. its not “identify as female if youre male” so theres a big red flag right there and as for the rest of it loud fart noise

    I’m going to try to type a cohesive response to the “why can’t you identify as black if you’re white” part. You can relate to a cultural identity but you cannot (or, it is considered taboo to) “identify” as it, because most often than not, it is one of these situations:

    1. you just really like the culture - in which case, you are fetishizing someone else’s culture from what you have experienced of it. we all know the problem with that, don’t we?
    2. you grew up in the environment (e.g. you are white and adopted into a black family) - this is more delicate since a lot of the times such people truly believe that they are part of a group. BUT as a white person, you are not going to experience struggles & prejudice that black/asians/other minorities face outside of that circle. so it is erroneous (at best) to say that you are a certain race when you are only getting part of the true experience. It is generally acceptable to say something like “I am _____ but I appreciate & understand ______ culture, which is a part of my upbringing”

    So, in both situations you do not have sufficient REASON to be a member of that group, i.e. you don’t have CLAIM to something just because you “want to”, unlike gender because nowadays it is acknowledged as more fluid than we originally thought, and more personal than a specific cultural identity (usually tied in directly with appearance and skin colour) that deals with very delicate social issues. 

    As for the able-bodied and disabled thing it’s just really offensive. If anyone can claim that they are disabled although they are not, then they are blatantly undermining the claims of those who are really disabled. “How do I know he is not just faking it?” - everyone who sees a homeless person. Can you imagine if we let able-bodied people feign disability?

    Unless, of course, they are truly handicapped by a condition but it is not classified as a disability in legal terms or whatever. Then words are just words.

  • snowbouquetWhat's your opinion on there being "fake" and "real" fans/nerds?
  • neil-gaiman

    Until I meet any obviously fake human beings — and I think they’d have to be held together with glue, or have the eyes painted on, or really be dolls or slugs or something — I think all people, not to mention fans, nerds, geeks and suchlike are real.

    Some people haven’t read/seen/done as much as others. Some people haven’t been around as long. Some people wear T-shirts without knowing everything about what the T-shirt represents. But they are still real, and (and this is the important bit) everybody starts somewhere

    People at my signings sometimes tell me, apologetically, that they aren’t real fans, they’ve only read one book or a single comic, not like the people who know every obscure reference I make and win quizzes on my life and times that I would probably fail. And I tell them I’m glad they read the book. And I am.

You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you — it’s something inherent. You exist, and therefore, you matter. You’re allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings. You’re allowed to assert your needs and take up space. You’re allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough. And you’re allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise.
