Maybe it was because they keep calling while all I’m trying to do is do some grocery shopping. Maybe it’s because not only they called me but took advantage of the fact that I stopped to listen to what they had to say. Perhaps it was the way that the guy looked at me when I said I knew what the definition of transgender was, like “Are you sure you know what it was?” PLEASE. I HAVEN’T LIVED UNDER A ROCK. Then asking me for 365 dollars, then 30 dollars, pushing me to tell you that I am a broke college student that doesn’t have time (by this point he was talking for 15 minutes), AND by this point super irritated about him asking for so much money when I have given so many cues of “No, sorry”.
I don’t have anything against gays. I have something against people pushing for more money like as if I grow them on trees. If you guys were such a great organization, shouldn’t you already be sponsored? What about the kids who aren’t gay and who are being bullied? What are you doing about that? Bullying isn’t about just gay or transgender people, bullying isn’t racist or sexist or homophobic. Bullying is susceptible to everyone.
Next time I go to Trader Joes, I am ignoring you guys, period.
