I am one of the lucky ones.
My life is a sheer privilege because my parents did not love me less because I was born a daughter.
My school did not limit me because I was a girl.
My mentors did not assume that I was would go less far because I might give birth to a child one day.
I have seen men made fragile and insecure by a distorted sense of what constitutes male success.
We don’t often talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that that they are and that when they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence. If men don’t have to be aggressive in order to be accepted women won’t feel compelled to be submissive. If men don’t have to control, women won’t have to be controlled. Both men and women should feel free to be sensitive. Both men and women should feel free to be strong….
It is time that we all perceive gender on a spectrum instead two opposing sets of ideals. If we stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by what we just are - we can all be freer.

When you're on it, you're happy, incredibly, amazingly, happy.
Nothing in the world will bring you down, even if it tried.
It makes your heart race, it is ALL you think about, it's bliss beyond anything you've ever felt or going to feel.
It's enthralling, enchanting, it leaves you breathless, blind, weak. It brings you up.
It's the strongest ecstasy, the sweetest candy, the most satisfying shower.
You feel content, and there's nothing else in this world that matters, that ever mattered to begin with.

I was almost very certain that she had
no feelings whatsoever.
I was pretty sure she could not have sympathy or compassion towards anyone but herself.
I was wrong, in her heart .. she could bear the feeling of hate.
Ironically, that is the one feeling I cannot sustain from my own blood.
