What were once street lights lights become a highway to another dimension.
I don’t understand when people are like, “But why are you paying attention to THIS issue, when there is THIS issue happening here?”, or “They’re just trying to distract you from the REAL issue*insert thing here*” Or whatever.
My thought is, all of these issues are important. Women’s issues, racial issues, equality issues, government issues, environmental issues, mental health issues, the various international issues… so on and so forth… All of these things are important, and all of these things deserve attention, and empathy, and compassion, and people doing things and supporting them in making things better…
But like, why do you have to act like it’s a competition? Why do you have to show one form of oppression next to another form of oppression, to try and shut up the people supporting one that you personally don’t feel particularly intense about?
I feel like it’s normal for one thing to be super important to some people, while others are lukewarm to it. I don’t think that’s strange. What I do think is strange is that people have a mindset of shutting down other people in an attempt to push their issue into the spotlight. (Or, worse, to just get people to shut up.)
I think a much better way to look at things would be something akin to,
"I see that this particular issue affects you a lot and is clearly super important to you. I will lend my support to you in your endeavors, but please also look at this issue over here which I have the same intensity for, and help us out too."
(or something that sounds better, but that’s the gist of it)
Like, there are so many passionate people, and so many things to work towards in terms of progress… These things can be worked on simultaneously without depreciating the value of any of the other things.

Drake honestly seems so sweet.
I see all these gifs and pictures of him hanging out or performing with fellow artists and he seems so happy and kind
Like he’s the kind of person to send you your favorite cupcakes if he knows you’re having a bad day.
Keep on doing you, Aubrey.
