Never too Little by Hirukio Never too Little by Hirukio

:bulletgreen: Spread the Love? Feel free to reblog the tumblr post, but please do not repost.

You're never too little, in body or voice, to make the world a happier place.

Something quick and little for spirit day and for myself since spirit day is always around my birthday. It's a bit of a self portrait, and a bit in response to what happened around Amanda Todd. After I heard what happened the story about her on the news, I cried for hours and knew I was going to have to do a piece to get my feelings out.

I'm wearing so much purple today my great-grandma said I looked like a giant plum! My other clothes are green with envy /bricked

I'd like to also use this space to recommend Laci Green's Sex+ channel, you can find her on youtube. She covers pretty much everything you could want to know from social issues, to sexuality, body image, relationships, and sexual health, all from a positive and open minded perspective.

So spirit day is day against bullying, and awareness of its problems?
why didn't this exists when I was little?
It's too late for me now...

this is beautiful! I love the colors and texture!
This is such a sweet picture, so pretty too! The message behind this is so powerful, and I agree completely. :heart:
hugs =<, my teenage years sucked too. I was always bullied cause of my personality and i was petite/small when i was younger too.

Who is Amanda Todd? And what happened?

Like the person below me said, she was also from the same city as me which brings it a lot closer to home. She had been suicidal before and drank bleach, and instead of offering her support her peers told her to go drink more and that they hoped she died the next time.

I felt that her story fit into the theme of spirit day as her bullying as very much based on her sexuality, and gender, and if she had been a male she likely wouldn't have been treated with such hate.

There is also news articles all over the internet, if you just google her name you'll find a lot.
