It is a very dark time. The American election has put a spotlight on
everything that is wrong with the Western world at the moment
- all based on disappointment and fear. The revolutionist/anarchist in my heart
hopes that there is a way to undo this last horrendous act, that my American
sisters (and brothers) will find a way. But the cynical realist in me doubts it.
I am a person in constant flux and because of that I rarely talk about my past.
But you should know; I am LGBTQ friendly, I took gender and queer studies at Uni,
I was an active member of Tjejjouren (Young women's/girls' helpline)
for many years and I am proud to vote for the Swedish Feminist party.
This may mean nothing to you, or just give you a small boost
along your way on a gray, hopeless day - but if I can make one single woman
feel supported by voicing my standpoint, I have succeeded in my endeavor.
Whether you have made a ball on the sofa or you are already out there
on the barricades - I wish I could be there in person to hold you up
through the coming struggles, but I have to settle for being here
for anyone who needs to spew, to cry, to vent, to rant (in text).
Just know - KNOW - that you are not alone. If you feel depressed,
lost, sad or even intimidated - talk to someone, talk to anyone!
It may not be what's expected, it may not even be your first choice
but sharing, putting words to your upsets is how to start a revolution,
how to heal, how to grow strong. Talk to me if you feel you have no-one else.
THIS IS A SAFE PLACE FOR YOU.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
