    Well, You Can Keep Your Pity!

    I don't know why people think pity is welcome.

    It's demeaning. If you want to help, then help, but don't ever pity.

    When you get to that point of trusting someone

    and you tell them about your past. They instantly jump to pity you. I loath that, I didn't want to tell.you for.that very reason. I know they do it because theycare and feel bad but no , pity makes it worse.

    I Hate It When People Give Me That Look

    I'm sure someone out here knows what look I'm talking about. The second you tell someone some sad story about yourself they just look at you with such pity. Then of course there's the concerned phone calls and open arms. Then they all start making excuses for you because now that...

    I'm in a scootmobile

    whenever I go outside. A lot of the time, especially at the mall, people give me those disgusting pity looks and pity smiles because I'm young and in a scootmobile. Also, whenever they talk to me, it's like they're trying to make a 2-year old understand something. I may not be...

    Tokenized

    I have such bitterness about pity. This is story is a cathartic rant of that bitterness. November 19th is Transgender Day of Remembrance. It is a day to remember, mourn, and celebrate the lives of transgender people who have been hurt, degraded, and killed. Transphobic violence...

    Alright, I don't mean to be rude,

    but it's time for me to vent. I actually hate when I see people with depressing usernames. And I especially hate when all of your experiences are depressing as well. I get it if you have a few, or several. Everybody has their problems. But if every single one of them are...
