Words Can Hurt by MadamMichi Words Can Hurt by MadamMichi
So for all those trying to cheer me up :) thank you so much. This deviation is from 2011 and I am doing quiet well now (yes I have heard worse things since I made this but I'v grown much thicker skin) to anyone else struggling hang in there!!! there are wonderful and accepting people out there I promise!

I couldn't put this in lit. but that is it's intended category :shifty:

Time: 1 Hour 37 Mintues
Layers : 26

A poem I wrote at 1:37 AM on the note App on my Ipod Touch. Then until 2:30 AM I thought up the idea for the picture and I remembered all those quotes you see in the background. Also during that time I watched this video and it made me ball my eyes out for like no reason-->… …no I don’t cry at all ‘it Gets Better Videos” …maybe it’s because I was so sleep deprived.

"You didn’t do anything wrong” ~President Obama
"Your differences are a source of pride and a source of strength"~President Obama

The Not So Good
"Filthy Unnatural Perverts"~ A comment on news article about gay marriage

I love it! Everyone in the world needs to see this. I want to see a true smile on your perfect cute face. Always listen to the kind people. The people who believe in equality. And I'm one of them. Never listen to the ones who hurt you. I want to be your kind shield, I want to be your protector from the haters. They can have they're 'opinion', but never, ever, forget that you are truly beautiful, just because you are you. And I'm sure that many other people agree with me. Please, let us be your supporting shields.

This is definitely my favorite of everything I've seen - no kidding! :o
The words are perfect for such an art and you've obviously put a lot of thought into it. The quotes fit in as well, but I am truly sorry that you have had to hear such things from the 'Not So Good' list, you have definitely not deserved that! You are who you are no matter what and nobody should change that 'cause then you wouldn't be YOU. ♥
I have a hard time figuring out which "team" I'm on? Right now it's both I think? I'm probably too young to be thinking of that kind of thing, but yeah.. *sigh* ^_^
Oh, and the quote from Clint Mccance is just horrible! D: How can anyone be so cruel to say such a thing?! .__.

Thank you darling~ 

You are never to young to "know" but don't worry about it to much you have your whole life to figure out who YOU are. :)

to hell with others words! I have found out how scary it is being bi/homo/lesbian/gay etc etc in a middle school and soon to be highschool world, and in al honesty, you gotta take that fear and shove it down everyone who dared open their big mouths throats. (hahah yay is that proper english??? Help! ^^;

If you have someone who loves you, if you have a gf and you know you two love eachother to death, then what everyone else thinks doesn't matter. Strangers have opinions too but if they wanna judge someone on one fact and not get to know that person for WHO THEY REALLY ARE, then forget said stranger. they're not worth the tears nor the time. 

My best of wishes to you hon, this world is cruel and dangerous but you will always find open and comforting arms. Esecially the ones of thy beloved. :huggle:

This hit me hard. :/ I'm Bisexual. and only two or three people in my real world actually KNOW this. everyone else that knows are all online. Right now I have a BOYfriend, and like I said, not even my parents know I'm Bi. it still hurts hearing comments like this, dealing with my psychochristian friends that are anti-gay, and stuff like that :( It's even been something that pretty much obliterated what faith I had. I honestly lost a lot of faith in the church because of how people like us are treated and perceived as. :(
