Many of you have wrote in asking about how to deal with friends, family members, and significant others who may not support or understand the way you express yourself. To be honest, I struggle with this as well and it is difficult.
Unfortunately, people in our lives sometimes feel as though they have a say in how we present ourselves to the world. Whether it’s the clothing you wear, the tattoos and piercings you get, the hair color you chose, or all of the above plus some. I think it’s important to know that those are your choices. Sometimes that is complicated by financial dependency and other negotiations that you and your loved ones have made so… there may be give and take until you can support yourself.
However, when you’re on your own and others disapprove of the way you choose to handle your body just know that you are not alone. There are others out there and we’re figuring it out day by day. Don’t feel like you have to justify yourself to anyone. Don’t change yourself to meet others’ expectations or desires for you. No one knows you like you do. As long as you are happy and healthy, nothing more should matter.
Love yourself, be true to yourself, and the opposing force will seem weaker each day.
"This is how thoroughly we women have been sexualized, that we cannot make the kind of noises that come with physical exertion without it being associated with sex. In fact, everything about our bodies has been sexualized in one way or another. If we groan during sport or we breast-feed in public, we are criticized for making people think about sex. If we talk openly about things like menstruation and poop and farts, then we are criticized for making people not want to think about sex.
Think about what it means to be ladylike and all of the adjectives that go along with it: elegant, cultured, classy, sophisticated. To be successful at being feminine means being successful at being private, keeping your body’s natural functions behind closed doors and never letting anyone know they exist. It means to be constrained, that you do not let your legs spread wide in public transportation and you do not make noises that are harsh on the ears. It means presenting a polished, shiny surface to the world at all times, one that allows others to project whatever they wish onto you while never showing too much of your true self."

Oh man, this is so wonderful. Charlie: push play. Everyone else, too, for that matter.

Do you ever get into an argument with someone and find yourself unable to speak for a moment because you’re just so blown away by how utterly wrong and ignorant the other person is being and you can’t understand how anyone could actually believe the things they are saying
