"Toxic masculinity hurts men, but there’s a big difference between women dealing with the constant threat of being raped, beaten, and killed by the men in their lives, and men not being able to cry."  - Robert Jensen  (via internetexplorers)

Reject the notion that you are supposed to be at a certain place by now.

Don’t measure yourself to some colloquial set of social constructions.

The premise of minimum wage, when it was introduced, was that a single wage earner should be able to own a home and support a family.  That was what it was based on; a full time job, any job, should be able to accomplish this.

They’re usually like, ‘What the fuck is this?’ It’s difficult for me in the fashion world; people think I’m a gimmick and that I’m just being exploited for my differences. My interaction with people is stressful. We’re all mirrors to each other, and I think a lot of people tend to project their bullshit on me. I have to remember that when someone does judge me in a certain way, it’s just a reflection of their own issues. It just sucks that I have to be the one that receives it….
