Here was my purple look for today.
I had it planned last night because today was the all day event "Wear Purple To Commemorate The Suicides Caused By Homophobia" in short, "Spirit Day". I don't have any purple clothing, so naturally, my choice was in eyeshadow.
However the dude decided to hop in the shower late, delaying my makeup process!
Anyways, back to my point.
I am not gay myself, but I'm completely fine with those who are. And if I was, big whoopdedoo! I'd still be human. I felt the need to mention this because I know some people just automatically assumed that by showing your support wearing purple you were gay so they shied away from it. That was not what this event was about. It was to let people know they are not alone. It was to remember those who took their lives. I don't wanna ramble on too much.
The main point, there is nothing wrong with being who you are. If people don't like it, FUCK EM! With a big ole F.
It's extremely sad that some people feel they have nobody to turn to and will end their lives without getting help.
Parents need to drill it into their kids' heads that there is nothing wrong with someone being different than you. And that taunting someone because of this is absolutely unacceptable.
Here was my purple with Aromaleigh
What's Skakin'? on lid
Mourning's Whimsy in crease
Poison Utopia to darken crease
Browbone was something repackaged but purple and awesome
No time for liners due to the shower hogger.
Only 1 pic, batteries died :(
I do wish I had known about this day sooner. I had no clue until my mom sent me the facebook link with the info last night. Hopefully next year will have more awareness.
And hopefully next year there will be less people deciding suicide is the only way out because views have changed and attitudes have been adjusted.
