I was at the barber with my hubby last weekend. While he was getting his hair cut we were talking with Ann, his barber, about my faerie blog and how I got a baby faerie on video with my cell phone (I had it with me and showed her). She stopped cutting and looked straight at me and said, "You two don't really believe in faeries do you? I mean, what do they do? What are they for?" She thinks we're nuts. She was just talking about how her sister was up north on a ghost expedition and how they got pictures of orbs that were "obviously" ghosts. And she was looking at me like I was nuts. It's not that I disbelieve there are spirits walking around with us, sharing the same space. No, my problem is that she can tell me that I'm crazy to believe in faeries but she can go about telling everyone that they have pictures proving ghosts exist. I truely love Ann, I do, but she represents the problem I have with most of society. Why can't people just accept the idea that there are many different belief systems and leave it at that? This isn't the first time I've come up against this bias. My own sister has been telling her daughters that their aunt is "excentric". Well, to be fair, I don't mind being excentric, I kind of like it. Still, all of this faerie predjudice has led me to a decision, I'm starting a faerie campaign on twitter. I want to lead a group of faerie sympathizers in flooding the twitter boards with faerie information. We all know that there is a wealth of information out there about the fae and since we only have 140 characters to deal with we can break down the information till the cows come home, so to speak, and just keep putting out the word until we stop being treated like second class citizens just because we believe in faeries! Can you tell that I'm very passionate about this? Let me hear an "I BELIEVE!"
