Let me tell you a queer little story about a boy named Dan.
Follow me online to see the rest of my tale as it unfolds in real time:
And subscribe to my channel! ukvid.net/u-danisnotonfire (lol)
Content warning: this video contains far too much strong language and discussions of general sexuality, discriminatory language, bullying and an attempt on my own life. Otherwise totally appropriate for education, instilling good values in young children and my grandma who I will expect a disappointed text from.
Special thanks to ukvid.net/u-AmazingPhil for production assistance.

Disclaimer - This video is just a starting point for me, what I felt was the bare minimum (ha) required for me to get this out there so I can move forward with my life, a mix of explanation, justification and opinion. It scratched the surface of several things I could have gone into more detail about, but the purpose of this was to be ..reasonably concise and above all entertaining. In the future, in the right places, I will surely talk much more about everything touched on in this video and more. It’s also likely that something will get misunderstood or misrepresented, perhaps from the way I phrased things or people assuming my thoughts on things that I didn’t specify. Also my story is just the truth of what happened to me and what I thought at certain points of time in my environment, good and bad - of course not my opinions today. So JUST to be clear my opinion on general sexual and gender identities are that everyone is valid and deserves equal rights and the freedom to exist. The only thing I don’t tolerate is intolerance. Cheers to an inevitable bright future, either because people become nice and the old people die or the sun explodes first lmao.

I kept telling myself I'd watch this fully when it first cam eout and kept forgetting until now. But god this made me feel so guilty for being a huge phannie back in the day. To be fair I quit all that way back in 2014 when I realized shipping human beings is gross and messed up bc it does absolutely lead to the exact shit Dan mentioned. Overall this was such an amazing video and you have such a huge support behind you Dan!

Thank you for pronouncing lmao as “luh-ma-ow” and not “elle-em-ayy-ohh.” My friends tease me about saying it the way you do, so it’s a relief to see that my prononciation is valid (and superior). Also: hell yea!!! live your truth🌟

Fall Out! At my Green Chemical Piløts
19:27 - 19:45 I’m intense sobbing, not only because of Dans attempt (but that made me cry for like 20 minutes so I had to pause the video) but because I’ve been in that situation multiple times
