Caitlin (CraziiCat♥) (randomroyale) | 136 comments Inspiration can come at the most random moments, whilst doing my spanish homework, I was inspired to write this.

What did you write?


Caitlin (CraziiCat♥) (randomroyale) | 136 comments Dear World,

My name is Caitlin, I'm nearly 15 years old, I live in England and I'm a real person. A human, not an alien, a freak, or unatural. And yet there are people in the world that condemn the likes of me and attempt to either 'cure' us or kill us. (Yes I am talking about Adolf Hitler.) Am I a Jew? No. Am I disabled? No. Am I white? Yes. Why would he kill me, I could have been a poster girl, for one of his Ayran propaganda adverts, with the blonde hair and blue eyes. Confused? No wonder when the answer is one that only a few people know. Hitler would have killed me for being me, crazy, clever, quiet me. Did I mention that I am bisexual. Yes I'm sat on the fence (sort of speak). You may or may not have seen that coming, but hey this is me being open and honest. So before you get all judgemental, let me tell you something; as much as I've always been and accepting person who wishes for equality, I've also been there done that and got the T-shirt. The barrage of abuse and taunts never came from the mouth of some homophobic bully, but from my own conscious.
Because to be honest it took me a relatively long time to accept myself and for the first few weeks since I had realised and 'accepted' that I wasn't straight, I was in a very dark place both mentally and emotionally. Sure I had my facade when I was around other people, but as soon as I was on my own that's when my mask crumbled and I was left to deal with the fact that (potentially) I could end up having a crush on one of my friends, and the thought of that terrified me and made me hate myself.

But now I'm slowly coming round to the fact that I'm bi and have actually made some jokes, with myself (sounds lonely), about how greedy I am. Not content with one cake (guys) I want a bit of the other cake (girls), crazy analogy right. Despite this, I am yet to officially ' come out' and currently the only member of my family who knows is my 13 years old cousin, whom I am very close to and treat like a sister.

So, enough of the rambling, what I'm saying is that we are human and ' normal' and deserve the same kind of respect that heterosexuals have. So please do not judge or hate us because for some of us, at the very beginning there is no one who hates ourselves for who we are than ourself.

Thank you for listening; Caitlin

Erin (emm3281) I kind of know how you felt. It took me a while to accept myself.

Not in our house. My cat jumps on me in bed to wake me up. Then it's a little face time with Letha, my better half.

Angelique (angeltrin1) | 17820 comments Mod

message 25: by [deleted user] (new)

My cat is more like the adult in our family.:D I woke up one morning and I thought I went blind. The cat had fallen asleep on my face.

Angelique (angeltrin1) | 17820 comments Mod
Hahaha yea they both love to walk all over me (literally and figuratively) when I am on my side one of them loves to climb on my hip and lay there so I can't move, it is funny but sweet!


message 27: by [deleted user] (new)

Angelique (angeltrin1) | 17820 comments Mod
Erica, I have found that cats, well pets because I had a dog when I was a kid that did the same thing, pets seem to know when you need love or just touching. When I am really having a bad day my cats are both all over me. It is awesome!


message 32: by Angelique (new)

Angelique (angeltrin1) | 17820 comments Mod
Oops! Well that sucks, I hope she gets more compassionate, shoot who am I trying to kid. Cats do WHAT they want, WHEN they want, HOW they want!


message 33: by [deleted user] (new)

@Erica

AWW..that's a shame. Sorry that happened. The more we love our pets, the harder it is to part with them. My dog and cat died during the past 3 years. Both of old age. I was heartbroken.


message 34: by Angelique (new)

Angelique (angeltrin1) | 17820 comments Mod
I'm sorry they died also, it is so hard to lose a pet!


message 35: by [deleted user] (new)
