I can’t speak for your theater world specifically, but I can make a suggestion— perhaps it isn’t theatre that is the problem. Maybe you need a new program. I’m very lucky, there’s a amazing program in my area. Maybe you could find a new one.

The problem with that is there aren’t any other programs, since this is just through my high school. There are bigger ones in my community, but it’s more for acting, not makeup. 

I guess it’s just changed since I joined sophomore year. People have graduated, dynamics have changed. Hopefully things will resolve themselves. Or graduation will just come really fast.

i’m hardcore stressing about theatre right now and my mind is telling me the only way i can deal with it is to start restricting again.

nobody is communicating with me, i never know what’s going on with makeup anymore, one of the stage managers basically told me i’m no use and should quit.

i’m just really sad because theatre used to be my life and now it’s just become triggering and scary.

theatre is supposed to be fun, not make me cry and feel even more isolated.

explaining anxiety is the fucking worst because you feel like an idiot for being bothered by the things that bother you but it’s such an intense fear right at your core so you have to go through all of these other levels of yourself to try and get someone else to understand it

"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”
