I’m a girl. I know that I am

I’m a girl. I know that I am. It’s the only thing I really know. But I am so scared all the time, because nobody else seems to want me to know that. Why can’t I just be a girl? Why does this all have to be so hard? I just want to be a…

Everything seems clearer now

Everything seems clearer now. Everything seems brighter now. Like the sun after the first rain. I feel happy; and it’s strange because I hardly feel. I look and I end up looking for as long as I can. I feel like I’m dreaming, but then again, I can see clocks around me. There are people…

I’m frustrated. I’ve just seen my tenth, or maybe eleventh, headline of today on how should I tell men that they’re wrong. That they should stop mistreating women. But is there really anything that we can do? Truth be told I’m a man and these headlines make me feel bad. Most of my best friends…
