[Gifset: Laverne Cox speaks at the GLAAD media awards, she says,
"Each and every one of us has the capacity to be an oppressor. I want to encourage each and every one of us to interrogate how we might be an oppressor, and how we might be able to become liberators for ourselves and each other."]
"THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people."
Seriously though it can get really addicting to tie your self-esteem and self-assurance to cosplay because 1) it’s a very visible hobby and 2) it’s relatively easy to get positive attention once you’re doing it
but the problem with that is 1) it’s not good to invest all your self-esteem and self-assurance / confidence to a single hobby / interest because it’s fickle. Cosplay fame isn’t real at the end of the day and has pretty much 0 value in the real world. It can be gratifying and exciting to get attention for it but, you know, nerds in costumes! And 2) Oftentimes it leads to ego trips and elitism and generally being a gross person to be around so just pull an Elsa and let it go. Just let it go and don’t let the grossness take over.
The funny thing about this is not that it’s correct but that this is true for basically anything. If you invest 100% of your self confidence into a single aspect of your life, you’re going to have a bad time.
LOL YUP it’s funny cause like trying to become a well-rounded individual with balanced interests and investments in different things it’s better all around!!
