Gender defined roles are senseless.
Like it’s not more useful for a pretty girl to know how to work on a car in the middle of nowhere than if a man can. We try to lump the intricate variation of human personality into two zones, masculine and feminine. Very black or white juvenile thinking. And while these stereotypes are useful to put things in a nutshell, like most are, we should be careful how we use them. And we should use them while prefacing that the stereotypes we use are only for brevity’s sake and not because we think they encompass the variables of reality.
Each and every one of you is a beautiful human being; you are beautiful because of all the slight and perhaps large differences. You are beautiful because you could never fit into any one word blanket term stereotype anyone tries to push on you.
Get educated on self; and please, please for the sake of so many other people afraid to be themselves, be you. Be loud about it, and drag everyone with you.
