I’m sick of people saying, “It’s just personal preference.” Translation: “Be quiet. Don’t speak out on an issue that affects you.

By telling you to stop being bitter and to ‘get over it,’ we are really telling you to please continue to drown in your oppression and low self-esteem while it benefits us at the same time. We are ignoring that this is a real problem.”
