So who says we’re doing bad things here.
You have been telling us about violence, neglect, etc., so I feel compelled to share some of what I’ve seen for the past six years.
I guess the repercussions, if you will, aren’t entirely transparent.
But at the same time, let’s talk about how we were treated, and the effect it’s had on a few of our young people.
I was born and raised here, and now live in the Hills and Kingsford Smith areas. I grew up with five people with whom I was involved in a relationship. I know it’s different to other regions, but my approach was similar to in a lot of places.
A lot of the times people would say the point is they don’t feel able to go outside, but I don’t know if that’s because in my situation we were infatuated, but like you said, it’s something else that happens to everyone.
I’m sorry if you were among those already. I don’t think it’s really for everyone.
As a young man you are extremely proud of where you’ve come from, and you’re willing to deal with the impact you’ve had on others to make sure they aren’t in any sort of danger.
As a young woman you’re in the opposite position. Sometimes you’re afraid and the fear brings people to you in the worst possible way.
I’ve worked with a few young women who have come out and had to deal with things that a lot of us would never even consider. I think there are good things happening in this state, and we all need to say a big hug to them.– Miranda Ashby
