Fuck binaries! Seriously. Why are humans so obsessed with binaries? If we’re not one thing, we MUST be the other.
Gah! They frustrate me until no end! There is a whole lot of grey matter out there. Nothing in life is black and white. Just because we’re not one thing, doesn’t mean we are definitely the other. I feel like I’m a very ‘in-between’ sort of person in a lot of ways, so when I try to explain to people that I’m neither x nor y, most don’t quite understand how that’s possible. It is possible. I’m not the best at explaining myself/things in general a lot of the time, but that doesn’t mean that there’s no middle ground.
During one of my classes this semester we’re learning a little bit about society and how humans love putting things into binaries – but one of the most interesting parts is that society favours one over the other. And that really upsets me. One of these sides will always be seen more negative than the other. And everyone wants to categorise you into one or the other. Please, remember there is so much grey matter in between these binaries where people can fall into. And NO ONE is better than any other.
