this rant is really really long, and i will be marking the most important parts of this studio description with a star [✦].
so what has happened in america has sickened me to the bone. what happened to george flyod was horrible and he did not deserve it at all. however, a lot of positive things have come out of this. in australia, indigenous people are standing up, protesting for their rights. in america, things are slowly and steadily changing.
but, there's always negative to fight against the positivity.
✦ some people are talking about "all lives matter". this is absolutely correct, all lives DO matter! but, we don't need to focus on that at the moment. the fight that we need to win is hate against black people. for example, if there was a house on fire, would you call the firefighters to put out a fire on another house instead of the house that's actually on fire? no, you wouldn't. and in this case, black people are the house on fire, and we really need some firefighters right now.
additionally, we DO NOT need equality. we need equity.

even further, i've realised what's happening in the world. like, actually. i want to do something meaningful, and i actually can! i have almost four hundred people in my sphere of influence on this website, and i want to use it for good.
✦ another thing that i want to say is that feminism is NOT man hating. i really think that sexism is a problem, and i want to change it, especially at my school. feminism is not attempting to put women above men, it is attempting to make women and men equal. sexism does not just hurt women, it hurts men to. for example, if a guy was told that he "runs like a girl", that hurts bother girls and guys, especially the guy that the insult was directed to. and what makes me even sadder is that some of my friends believe that feminism is toxic, as do many, many other people. yes, there are some toxic feminists, but just because some people in a group are toxic doesn't mean that the entire movement is toxic.
✦ all of this needs to change. i want my profile and studios to be a safe place. if you read everything that i wrote here, then great job! if not, then that's okay. anyway, if you don't agree with what i have to say, then unfollow me. unheart, unfavourite my projects. do whatever you want, but do NOT start arguments. this is a safe space and i do not want to taint it with hostility.
thank you for listening to my ted talk.
