I tell my students, β€˜When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.’

Boys scare me.. Their acceptance of masculinity and their striving for validation of their masculinity is alarming and I truly cannot feel safe around ppl who do not categorically reject masculinity (u don’t have to be a girl to do this)

There was been WAY TOO MUCH masculine energy in my house lately my heart is clenched in anxiety over it I need girl friends pls I need warmth and light and love and less aggressive tones and loudness

I would say it is still a very present though minor part of my identity tho in a good way

And yeah like performing sexy feminity is Not sex… Like not even close like even if it occurs in actual intimate situations there is a significant distinction there..

performing femininity and I mean specifically like Hot Femininity or Sexy Femininity can be such a fun thing that feels powerful (but is not rly)
it is satisfying to do.. Or was.. I think I associate it w trauma now so it’s like no longer a thing I can comfortably do but I can remember how fun and like accomplished it could feel… U kno?
