Funnily enough, I was watching season 5, episode 4 of 2 Broke Girls right now and it was about the LGBTQ+ community! In this one, a transgender called ‘I’ orders a lot of cupcakes, to put, umm, something, in them. Caroline didn’t feel comfortable selling cupcakes to him and Max tells her to chill and to bag (the cupcakes). ‘I’ hears it differently, gets offended and bad-Yelps Max’s Homemade Cupcakes (which I found out, there is a WordPress blog for!)
Anyways, I’ve written a small story about someone of that community, the first post in the #UndeniablyUnique tag. Hope you heart it ❤
Is it that obvious? My jacket is black with pink pompoms, but does that give everything away? I keep turning back looking at my back, wondering if my identity is written in neon lights on it. It’s a scary world out there, that’s what everyone keeps saying, but they really don’t know what it’s like.
“Hi Matty.” I see my barista at the local coffee shop. People say that because we “look” alike, we’re friends. But I just felt nothing but good vibes from him the day we met. His husband’s also a great guy and makes really nice mac and cheese 🙂
Matty gives me my strawberry mocha and others give me weird looks. Am I one of them? Am I somebody different?
And the truth is…well, yes, I am.
We’re all different. Me especially, what being a transgender and all. But yeah, that’s life. Listen to me, people will ALWAYS give you weird looks. When you stand out, they despise you. When you’re famous, they envy you. When you aren’t, they sneer at you.
You just have to be thick-skinned and do and be with what and who you love. No matter who you might be or look like or love, you just have to run out and go do you. No one can change who you are, and they shouldn’t be able to.
Here’s a pink pompom. Give it to somebody who needs it and say, go do you.
