Love Without Fear by Zanui Love Without Fear by Zanui
Noticed dA started showing their purple... late. But that's okay, as long as they're actually taking this stuff into consideration. Besides, I was late with my picture too, so I shouldn't be complaining. Dx

Anyway, drew this to show my support for Spirit Day. In most instances, I've always perceived suicide as an awful thing, and when it's caused by something as awful as bullying, that's even worse. What's even worse? The fact that most kids DO go to guardians/adults/authority figures for help, and they're either brushed aside or made to feel as though it's their own faults.

My heart goes out to all those affected by this bullying and any bullying at all, whether it be bully victims, suicide victims, or their families. No one should ever have to go through that. Ever.

And while it may seem random, the reason I picked Sean for this was because he's a kid who went to a large middle/high school, and this sort of thing tended to happen. He attended the funerals of many students who died, some thanks to suicide due to bullying... It's not surprising he grew up to be the pessimist he is.

Bullying, not just for being homosexual, is a horrible experience I sadly relate to. I was fortunate enough to have guardians that helped me, but not everyone is blessed like that, especially gay students. It's really stupid; thinking gay is a disease.

Also: Sean is hawt. :heart:

Aww, I'm so sorry you relate to it. D: I don't, because other than your typical Elementary-school teasing, I was NEVER bullied, so I don't quite know the feeling.

Besides, if being gay is a disease, where's the medicine for it? The cure? Can I call in sick for being gay? Why not lock me in quarantine until they're sure my disease isn't contagious? I mean sure I'm Pan, but that sense of oppression and judgment is still there. Why can't I just love who I want to love and people be happy for me?

And awww, thanks. :'DD I think so too *shot*
