Don’t feel guilty. Feeling guilty accomplishes nothing. Channel this energy that would otherwise be wasted feeling guilty into making a difference. Educate yourself, then correct and educate your fellow white cishet people. Help make sure the voices of people less privileged than you are heard.
Whenever you see someone say “White people suck” or “Cishets suck” instead of feeling like you’ve been personally attacked or targeted, think about it for a second. What exactly are they complaining about? Have you ever done that thing, contributed to that problem in any way, or been complicit in it? Use that moment to self-reflect and think about how you’ll try and be conscious of that in the future.
If someone makes a joke about cishets or white people or whatever, have a sense of humor about it. Remind yourself “Wow, I’m pretty privileged that the worst thing I have to deal with are some harmless jokes about straight people”.
let’s spend our week nights eating cereal on the floor
when there is a perfectly fine table behind us.
we can go to the movies and sit in the back row
just to make out like kids falling in love for the first time.
we’ll paint the rooms of our house
and get more paint on us than the walls.
we can hold hands and go to parties we end up
ditching to drink wine out of the bottle in the bathtub.
and slow dance with me in our bedroom
with an unmade bed and candles on the nightstand.
let me love you forever.
Reminder that while the concept of virginity is technically a social construct, your sexual debut is still allowed to be special to you, and you are still allowed to wait and want to make it meaningful, and your self-perception is still allowed to change after you have sex. Just as long as you’re doing these things for yourself, and not because someone told you that you should.
You do you.
