: We are stagnant in disappointment because we are waiting for someone else to make it okay, to apologise for our hurt, to give us an explanation for our hurt and permission to move on. Closure is an individual quest for resolution. Let it go, turn away, move on.

Really sick of problematic women latching onto me with "All your big talk about feminism, why aren't you babysitting me?" Anyone who treats a cause as a excuse for misbehaviour/exploitation and the people who champion it as their personal staff is an asshole.

I'm going Live in 10minutes on Instagram (same id as here) with Anu Elizabeth Roche, my equal and opposite in personality. We're talking labels, identity, gender roles on : Black or White?

: We struggle with focus when we are worried or fearful. Focus is not dramatic or large. It is tight, small, even mundane. Close an eye. Cover the ears. Stop speaking for 1 minute. Focus is what appears once the tumult settles. The way out is one small step at a time.
