I'm just really emotional about this right now. I think its painful coming to the realization that this is what will come to define my life. Fighting endlessly day and night against stuff like this with literally no end in sight. Thank you for you words though. Really it means so much.

I definitely feel like that sometimes. When I sink too deep into that though I try to be more positive. Did you read the "crazy eyes" Ama? It was really eye opening for me. She talks about racism, feminism, pretty much all the trigger words for an internet shit show. But she was so nice, positive, and friendly people were more open to her message. Looking at the good not only makes me less miserable but it helps me have real discussions with people.
