Rest in Peace, Francis Lapointe (aka Frank Wolf) who committed suicide on Nov. 25th 2013. He was an exquisite model, loved to cosplay and was bullied for cross dressing and simply being who he was and doing what he loved to do. I wish he could’ve listened to every single person who admired him and loved him. Let this influence you to love yourself for who you are, not what society thinks or what others think. Influence others that they are beautiful inside and out and that suicide is NEVER the answer.
We lost a beautiful person along with Paul Walker this month. Best wishes to his family, friends, and his fans.
RIP Frank Wolf <3
Update: A Diagnosis…
So…I’ve been diagnosed with Bipolar (Depression) Disorder.
I’m upset, scared, and angry with myself.
Oh you delightfully sweet person you. My words of pain came only from a moment of extreme despair. It was a slight and simple mistake on my part, and all will be well, but it was the voices of people hurtful in my life that arose and caused the most harm. I just need to push through and past then. After all, there are people who love me as I am. People as splendid as you. I must only ignore that of my depression. I’ll be okay…
Fuck. Fuck me. Just to hell with it all. Fuck. I’m a fuck up.
YOU KNOW WHAT YOU JUST DID. DO YOU KNOW. WHAT YOU JUST DID. I NOW OFFICIALLY HAVE THE WHOLE FREAKING GOD DAMN SONG STUCK IN MY HEAD.
I READ THIS IN PERFECT TUNE.
AND IT KEPT ON GOING.
AND NOW IT WILL NOT LEAVE
I HOPE YOU’RE HAPPY.
Being a European Druid in America constantly gives me the impression that I am surrounded by pagans that have watched “Charmed” and “The Craft” in the same manner that Christians read the Bible. It is actually really embarrassing how religion had developed in the New Land. The other day I met what…
Thanks for erasing entire massive segments of the Pagan community who:
a) sacrifice animals
b) don’t talk to dragons
c) have not been abducted by aliens
d) haven’t participated in orgies (and even if they have, it’s none of your fucking business)
e) actually take responsibility for their own actions
Seriously, I live in Canada (which I suppose is just “America Jr.” to most people, and do you really have ANY idea how big America is, how many people call America home? You say that you’ve only met ONE person who meets your standards, that’s one hell of a sample size you’ve used to stereotype AN ENTIRE NATION. I mean really, we Canadians have our “stupid Americans” jokes, but we’re smart enough to realize that our jokes only really apply to Texas and Florida. ;)
(Yes, that was sarcasm.)
Also, wow, crazy cat ladies? What sexist tripe!
I also think that’s an…interesting recommendation….I looked up the author, and from what I can tell he had a PhD. in Philosophical Theology (or something) and was a Catholic scholar, not Pagan or Druid in any way. I mean, if I wanted to recommend someone familiar with Druidry, I’d go for Peter Berresford Ellis, who actually has a degree in Celtic Studies and has written a few books on historical druidry, or, you know what, even a modern practitioner of druidry would do.
I submit that you should be ashamed of yourself for stereotyping entire nations.
Seriously, you are being….what’s that the British say….a prat, and this post is a load of bollocks!
Thank you. Thankyouthankyouthankyou. I could not say that enough. I read the original post and I was positively and wholly astounded! I could not believe that anyone could be so outright rude and slandering to an entire nation - which I would like to add that there varying cultures and peoples inside said nation.
I mean, I too am Canadian. But to be frank, I make about as much fun of myself as a Canadian, as I do about Americans. I do this all in a joking manner, and truly I intend no offence. Because I know that, sometimes, the loudest heard are the mistaken ones. But I also know that just because I disagree with one or a few, does not mean it encompasses the whole.
Like. I don’t even know what more to say beyond my being appalled with druidfootsteps.
Has the media washed and muddled some Paganism? Yes, but for some. Not all. Not even most. A small and rather inconsequential number. There exist stereotypes and people who do misrepresent, yes - but that applies to just about everything out there. Especially minority groups. Because, let’s face it, Paganism appears as a minority group.
But I mean, come on. What an unfair call that is? To just simply say a part of the world should be outright ashamed of itself for a few that one did not like. I just. I can’t.
And, I’m sorry, but I thought part of Druid/Pagan teachings was to remain open-minded and accepting. Sure, you can me skeptical, you might not even agree, no one is saying you have to. And if you want to debate or argue about it, that’s you’re right. But to outright shun and insult, that is uncalled for.
