when the boys pull your hair and push you to the ground
I promise not to tell you that it’s because they like you.
when the teachers call home to tell me that
you pushed them to the ground in return
I’ll take you out of school early and buy
you your favorite ice cream.
when you get older and the boys
try to touch you when you don’t want to be touched
I’ll look at you like the sun when you come home
with anger in your fists.
they all tell you not to fight fire with fire
but that is only because they are afraid of your flames.
when the boys yell after you like hyenas
you yell back, baby.
I will not teach you to be afraid of your anger
so that you look for it in others.
I will not make you be the better person
because you already are.
you wanna fight ‘em? fight ‘em.
don’t you dare apologize for the fierce love
you have for yourself
and the lengths you go to preserve it.
when the boys try to tell you to soften up
I hope you make them bleed with your edges.
I hope you remember that you are not theirs
that their disappointment in you is not yours.
when the boys come to your door with pretty words and
I hope you show them the anger in yours.
I hope you show them just how strong your mommy
thinks you are.
I hope you show them the animal they can’t always
see in their own reflection.
when the boys come with the intention of hurting you
my advice will always stay the same, my darling:
give ‘em hell.
The printer sneezed
Is this what love feels like?
eehhhh this is beautiful *dies*
I just saw this ad playing before a youtube video and I had to stop and watch the whole thing. Incredible.
oh my god, i was talkng to my college counselor today who is a transgender female, and she was talking about how in the DSM, gender dsyphoria used to be trying to FIX people who recognized themselves as a different gender then their physical bodies, and how NOW, in the DSM V its considered not a mental illness but rather the distress that comes with it. and she was disappointed that it was still IN the DSM but happy that its progressing :) people are finally starting to realize that its not the individuals problem, but rather societies view of that individual. /intellectual talks with the college counselor~
