I was looking back through the topics in the merbooks forum on goodreads, and found a rather old conversation about how some of the members had been bullied or looked down upon for loving mermaids.
I've heard similar stories throughout the year I've been involved in the mermaid community. And while mermaids are making a comeback in culture as of late, a lot of people still think that we're hanging on to the idea of Ariel longer than we should.
So if anyone who reads this blog feels alone, please know that we are always here for you. Just leave a comment on post or e-mail me, or I'm sure Garrett would be willing to talk as well. I think it's ridiculous the amount of incredulous stares and snippy comments I get about helping out with this blog, and nobody should ever feel alone or alienated by something they love.
You're always welcome to leave an e-mail address for us or join the group over on Goodreads so as to chat with us!
Seriously, we love you guys.
