> several multies and otherkin being proud their therapists didn’t diagnose them as batshit for being multies/otherkin
> tons and tons of people walking around believing the Earth is 6000 years old and that Jesus is their imaginary friend, also going without therapy for it
#not really something to be proud of
The fact that you are seeing a therapist indicates that you are not completely okay mentally. It’s not that hard to understand why people would find your ideas weird. You cannot deny they are unusual and strange to most.
As for Christians: I am a Christian, or at least, I was raised Christian. I was never told the earth was 6000 years old, that’s nonsense. People have estimated that from dates in the Bible, but I don’t believe that. People can interpret the Bible in many ways. I for one do not believe one should read the Bible as a book of science, it’s not about science. It is, IMHO, a book filled with inspirational stories, lessons and quotes. I myself find it quite valuable. Do I believe everything literally happened like the Bible says? Nope. But the good in the Bible heavily outweighs the bad. Texts of a philosophical nature are not meant to be taken literally.
Then you mentioned Jesus as being an “imaginary friend”. Fact is: Jesus of Nazareth is a historical character of who’s excistence there is plenty of evidence. Roman historians aren’t known for making shit up, trust me. They have a reputation of being very reliable. Jesus Christ has been dead for 2000 years but his ideas are very much alive till this very day. And whether you share those beliefs or not, is up to you. He remains, in my view, a fascinating and inspirational man.

Because everyone pays for internet. Because internet is always expensive. Because internet is always a luxury. Because poor people with things aren’t really poor.
Oh come on, there are even homeless people on tumblr. Nothing really suprises me anymore these days. That, or people on tumblr are lying their asses off. Besides, who needs vegan food anyway? It’s unhealthy. And idiotic. Say you kept chicken, and they lay eggs? What would you do with ‘em, throw them away, feed them to the dog…? That’s just being wasteful. If you wanna safe the earth and the enviroment can’t you find ways to do it that aren’t totally gay? I’ve met plenty of vegetarian people that I got along with, my own mother was vegetarian for years, to give one example. But all the vegans I have ever met in my life have been annoying little brats, pretentious and whiny.
I remember there was this albino kid in high school, she was “raised vegan” and she was always being super smug about it and telling her classmates and even teachers they were “horrible people” for not being vegans and that they were “destroying the earth”. She always sounded like she was crying or nearly breaking into tears. Seriously, fuck that. Maybe I would be more positive towards vegans and veganism if the vegans I had met hadn’t been such annoying bastards.
