Chubby Inuit mermaids with sleek seal tails

Sleek Japanese mermaids with orange and white koi bodies

Dark, scaly mermaids with enormous white eyes so that they can hunt at the bottom of the sea

Small mermaids with spiky, poisonous lionfish bodies

Mermaids with sharp teeth and shark tails that hunt sailors for fun

Mermaids that aren’t just skinny blonde pretty girls with fish tails

Are these okay?

Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.
