The Queen At Arms Kickstarter campaign is winding down and will end on the night of Monday, Sept. 15th.

It’s been amazing so far.  I’m in awe of people’s generosity and their enthusiasm for our project.

mentally ill people can be confusing and belligerent and unfriendly and ungrateful and violent and not want to be medicated and STILL be entirely fucking deserving of your help and support lmao you don’t just get to handpick the nice ones

yes you do

that’s how it works with non-mentally ill people. I don’t go out making friends with assholes, I’m not going to waste my time with a toxic person, regardless of whether you’re mentally sound.

my mom’s ex boyfriend was a paranoid schizophrenic who stole our money and had a gun under his fucking bed and tried to board up our windows

so nah i’m pretty sure i’ll pick and choose whoever the fuck i want

You’re not obligated to help or like anyone if they are abusive to you, regardless of their circumstances.

And I say this as someone who has severe mental illness.

It’s ableist to suggest that you should over look someone’s abusive behaviour just because they are mentally ill. We might not be culpable for our actions in the grip of psychosis, but that doesn’t mean people are obligated to tolerate abuse from us.

It’s taken me over a year to come to the realization of my mother’s abuse and to not try and excuse it away due to her mental illness or her substance abuse. Now that we have a specific diagnosis in Bipolar Disorder and Depression on top of the substance abuse, I’m strengthened further in trying to put a stop to her verbal and emotional abuse to me and my husband. Having the support of my dad and brother helps because it’s hard to try and balance helping my mother with her illnesses and not allowing her to walk all over me any more.

Please don’t forget about Ferguson, and listen to what black kids have to say, but don’t support FCKH8

They profit from civil rights movements to sell T-shirts and do not donate proceeds to charity. They’re bad people. I’m not reblogging the post that made me want to say this because I don’t want to give them more notes.

Here’s everything else wrong with FCKH8
