I really wish I wasn’t 16 anymore; if I ever came out to my parents, even though I know they’d be really cool about it, I’m such a clusterfuck of things (asexual, panromantic androgyne) that they’d say something like “Oh, well, wait till your hormones cool down so you can be sure of that,” and I know sexuality is fluid, but I don’t like that they just assume it’s gonna change. Sigh. Oh well. Parents are always gonna say stuff like that. Just make sure you don’t turn into these parents ;]
there’s nothing wrong with being aware of the fact that being 16 is very different from being an adult. when parents say that they’re speaking from experience not ignorance.

I’d give it all up
my life my hope and my fear.
Everything for you.
Summer is fading.
I will miss the way the sun
paints your skin with light.
when your hair spills like thick smoke
all over my chest.” —
