hello i want to cry.
i'm in a huge, flaming problem right now and i feel so panicked and worried and i just want to go somewhere else for a while.
the thing that is setting me on fire? feminism.
don't get me wrong, i don't hate it, and i just want to love every feminist and squish them into a large hug.
but am i a feminist? that's where i'll need help. i'm a Christian, trying to strengthen my bond with God and Jesus, since i feel like I've been drifting away lately. i've been pondering a lot lately and then i realized - feminists fight for things i don't support. even though i'll love on gays/lesbians to the end of the world, i won't suppot it. even though i'll love on trans people to the end of the world, i won't support it. and i want equality so freaking much, but i don't support a lot of things radical feminists do. and that makes me want to cry, because i've fought for feminism, declared myself one, and now i feel like everything is crumbling.
please help.

Hey, I'm a christian feminist too, and I get what you're saying, but think of what feminism actually preaches. You want equality, which is the fundamental teaching of feminism. You want queer and trans people to be safe and protected and loved and cared for, which is another branch off of the common feminist idea. Feminism to me is an idea of love and equality, which is a Christ-like idea as well! God sees all equally and with love, and that's all that (at least my definition of) feminism is at its core. A lot of people have different opinions on these subjects, and it's good to hear everyone's ideas and opinions and such, but also keep in mind your personal religious beliefs and your relationship with God. It's your own journey and opinions that you have to develop yourself. But to me feminism is a beautiful and worthy cause, and even if I don't agree with every feminist on every issue I do still consider myself a feminist because I keep the core ideals and believe in equality for everyone. I hope you can find your way through this. :)

honestly a lot of radfems go overboard (especially terfs, and White Feminists™), and as a self proclaimed feminist, i don't support them either. however i don't know how it feels to have the religion aspect intersect with this, but i hope things sort themselves out soon!!

been really sad lately and haven't been enjoying it. my friend/crush is starting to drift away from me and our friendship doesn't seem as strong. i'm trying so hard but it's so difficult to do all this shit and keep up with school and everything and it's annoying. sometimes i just want to curl up into a ball and cry for hours on hours on hours on end.

hey i'm sorry. *hugs* being sad is awful. but know sometimes it's good to cry and good to get it all out. be nice to yourself and take a break because you deserve it. i hope things get better my friend.

yesterday I saw a movie. halfway through an alarm went off, but the movie kept on playing. The theatre is in the middle of "No Where, Colorado," not far from Aurora and that horrible midnight Batman shooting.

the alarm goes off. the movie keeps playing. no one moves.

everyone is thinking the same thing. terrorists, madmen, guns, aurora, batman.

the alarm goes off again. my family exchanges scared glances and the movie keeps playing.

it goes off again, the lights flashing. i'm the first up and soon everyone in the theater follows. it's not that many people, but there is a lot of fear. i'm probably the youngest person there.

i'm the first down the little hallway to the door and i'm terrified. i think i'm the first out, going to be the first killed. everyone is silent.

i open the door slowly, and i see people across the brightly lit hallway also where another movie is playing peeking out. we all walk into the hallway, and see everyone else from the other movies walk out too.

a false alarm. the staff called out it was a false alarm, restarting the movies to when the alarm started. a false alarm. but terrifying nevertheless, because how where we to know? terrifying, an experience i'll remember, the day i thought i would be shot.

you all know about my relationship and distrust of guns, but oh my god yesterday was so scary.

sorry for spamming, but oh my god i keep thinking about it, and i know we all did the wrong thing. we should've taken the emergency exit out of the theater instead of going into it, and that scares me. because we did the wrong thing, as did everyone else in the theater and my god was it fhfhalkjhfaldkjf. terrifying. guns, terrorists. i guess this is what they mean. everyone is under attack, everyone is gaining this TERROR. they're freaking winning. because that was the only thought in everyone's mind.

my god the terror.
