Guys, I need to clear up the stuff that happened on Twitter the other day.
I was reading through different tweets on Twitter. I was reading tweets about furry couples and groups living together and being snuggly and cuddly, or how a furry was going over to another furry for a visit. Seeing that my financial situation has not truly improved in a while, I have not been able to afford to go to any cons since MFM or drive to go visit my big brother PJ and his family in Roswell since Memorial Weekend. I started feeling lonely and empty and hurt inside.
After more casual scanning, I saw a tweet from a friend who posted "I'm a furry and I hate" stuff. A moment later, a friend of this posted something too. At that moment, my mind snapped. I thought about all the negative things that I've heard ever since I became a furry, some things that were directed at me, and some things that I've heard in general but still affected me negatively. So, that's when I replied to their tweets with "I'm a furry and I hate hate." All of the things I listed as the three strikes were the things I've heard over the years.
By the time I was done, I honestly felt hurt deeply inside. I was shaking after I posted the third strike. But then, I saw the support from 15 furries and a couple of non-furries, as well as the musical pick-me-up.
If you thought the negative comments came from the people on Twitter, they did not. I'm very sorry that I have misdirected you. I have a hard time trying to explain things in words, especially after being flustered. But believe it or not, ever since I started school, I've been a victim of bullying, prejustice, and discrimination.
Honestly, I wasn't looking for a pity party. I needed to vent.
