A system won't change just by watching it. You need to apply a force to it to change its position.

Whatever result is behind that wall won't come to you by sitting on the wall while you stare at it. You are yet to shoot the shot, you're already scared of failing. No canoe will sail itself without being paddled. Don't just look at the high resolution, be the resolution.

You Carry a person in heart
With all the scars. 
Maybe a thousand reasons not to give up, because you know, leaving them means leaving a part of you behind. 
Even consistently and continually carrying emotions doesn't make it heavier, instead it melts the reason to run away! 
Always, your heart is my happy place!

This one is for the boys (and for the people raising boys). I wrote this after Shana Fisher was murdered by Dimitrios Pagourtzis. “He kept making advances on her and she repeatedly told him no,” Shana Fisher’s mother reported. Apparently Shana told him no for four months.

There’s a popular saying that goes, “If at first you don’t succeed, try try again.” And I think this saying was supposed to be useful when you are trying to hit a ball off of a golf tee, but we have started to apply it to dating and sex: If she says no, just keep asking until you wear her down and you’ll eventually “win”

How many times did Dimitrios Pagourtzis hear no before he decided to kill the girl he couldn’t have, along with 9 others?

Many boys (and I’m purposely using boys in this instance because boys are the ones shooting up schools) are walking around with such a sense of entitlement that they cannot fathom why a woman would not want to be with them. They cannot fathom why they don’t have friends, why their life isn’t exactly how they want it to be.

We have a society full of young, angry, men who were taught that, if they try hard enough, they can get whatever they want. And when they don’t get it? Time and time again there is violence, there is death.

I don’t flaunt my child psychologist expertise here often but I’m going to do it now. Some advice:

Teach your children no. Let them feel disappointment and tell them that the world doesn’t owe them a damn thing. They may be angry at this. Good— show them appropriate ways to be angry. Show them how to turn their frustration into something beneficial.

Throw out the rigid definition of masculinity. Teach your boys that there is more to being a man than sexin’ women and shootin’ guns. Teach your boys that men can be complex: both strong and gentle, both dependable and emotional. They can be intelligent and silly. Teach your boys that they can be all of these things, and STILL, there will be women who say “no” and that is ok.

檢討自厭,自厭我的性別。
好些日子裡,我總是被「孰輕孰重的性別平等」壓榨
卯足全力向前衝
養成了愛出風頭的習慣
只因為爺爺奶奶眼中只有小幾個月的堂弟
我不討厭他
但,越懂事的自己在長輩們的言傳
讓我真的以為我錯在性別
男孩,算個好名一輩子好命。
女孩,媽媽自己隨便取取。
長大些,甚至誇張地責備我的名
要我改成一個月霞、美珠,寶英這類媽媽年代的名字
好招來一個弟弟
幼稚園的我不知哪來的勇氣斷然拒絕
也慶幸我的爸媽沒有繼承這思維
-
小小年紀的我霸氣、高傲、倔強
要讓所有人知道我的價值
不過,我著實令人討厭
我像書中所描述的
擺在那個位子都「氣氣氣氣氣氣」
首要原因就是「我自厭」
我懦弱的接受眾人對性別的定義
而忽略本性
所以我拒絕撒嬌、柔軟與妥協
也不期待誰擁抱刺蝟🦔
-
幸好
我的父母重我
弟弟的出現更教會我愛人
現在身邊的肉桂先生也令我知道
「當一個男人懂得尊重性別,是多麼值得妳愛他、為他、敬他」
-
我不敢說我能全然面對「女性」在社會上的境遇
也不敢說我有沒有遺傳了對女人的刻板印象
不過卻能坦然接納不完美的自己
對不同風格的女孩亦能不認同但我尊重

He finally passed out after attacking my fingers, running around the house like his tail was on fire, and attempting to eat my dinner. He has such dignity. ⁠
