Like, imagine having to feel safe walking along holding your boyfriend/girlfriend’s hand.
Or dressing the way you feel represents you and not having “faggot” muttered at you by passers by.
Or introducing your partner and NOT being faced with askward an awkward “oh!”
Or knowing you’ll be able to turn on the TV and definitely see your lifestyle represented, numerous times.
Or not risking being thrown out by your parents for telling them the truth.
just gonna say this: if someone has social anxiety and they ask you something akin to ‘are you mad at me’ or ‘do you hate me’, it isn’t because they don’t trust you, it’s because their brain literally tells them that all the time
it’s not a personal slight, it’s insecurity caused by mental illness
