Giveaway!

So, I’ve never done one of these but I’d like to give it a shot, because hey, people love free stuff and I like to give people free shirts.

How to Enter/Rules:

  • Just reblog! There is a max of 3 reblogs per person. Likes will not count but I won’t penalize you or anything for it.
  • I will need a shipping address to send this to, so make sure your ask box is enabled.
  • I will order the shirt from RedBubble and have it shipped directly to the shipping address that you provide me with. There’s a very long list of countries that RedBubble ships to, so if you’re not in the US, UK, Australia, Canada, or New Zealand don’t sweat it — you’re probably covered.

The Prize:

  • I will pick one winner by a random generator. 
  • You, the winner, will be able to select any one of my shirt designs in any color and size you want!
  • This offer includes all of the shirts available, except for hoodies. Chances are, you’re not going to want a hoodie anyways. (In the future I’ll be more likely to include hoodies, though!)
  • I will be ending the giveaway at 8:00 PM EST on April 30th. (Or, in terms that people like me, who don’t really understand the EST and UTC and other things like that — I’ll end it when it is 8 PM in Washington DC.)
  • Good luck!

I find it insulting when people insist to a suicidal person that “they have so much to live for,” and that “they are stronger” than their suicidal impulse. As if the person in question isn’t entirely aware of those things, as if the chemical, neural imbalances or possibly external factors in them that are creating those feelings can easily be “overcome” if only they’re “strong” enough. Does that imply that they reason they’re suicidal in the first place is because they’re not strong? That they’re weak, in fact, for feeling the way that they do? It is not encouraging or helpful to say these things to a suicidal person, in my opinion. It smacks of shaming them; “oh, nothing’s really wrong, you’d be just fine if only you were strong enough. You should get on that.”


Suicidal people who are still suicidal and not dead have already proven their strength, as far as I’m concerned. And even those who commit suicide and “succeed” in the end can’t fairly be discounted as weak - everyone makes mistakes, sometimes deadly ones, and theirs wasn’t even their fault provided it was inspired by a mental illness. I’ve had plenty of people try to bring me back from the brink of a devastating depression by telling me that I’m so much stronger than it, and I can safely say that all I felt in those moments was shame, for not being strong enough to simply not feel that way. I’m not trying to speak for anyone else, but as far as I’m concerned, hearing that hurts more than it helps when you’re that low. So fuck you, I don’t need to hear that I’m stronger than my depression. I knew that already, it doesn’t change how I feel. You can’t sprinkle magic sparkle unicorn words over a chemical imbalance and make it go away. Don’t trivialize, invalidate, what I’m going through like that.

Okay, I’m really getting annoyed with people who seem to think that the only noticeable feature about Louis is the fact that he’s a little bit “camp” or whatever and it’s fucking annoying because you’re reducing him down to something and he’s so much more than that and just stop.

Seriously, there about 2 million other reasons why Louis is amazing and that is not his only quality and tbh, I’ve been talking about a Louis feels post for a while and I haven’t bothered to do one but people have made me angry so I’m going to talk about why I love Louis, okay.
