"I don’t need feminism because I stand with the victim regardless of gender. I refuse to believe one gender is better than the other and hope to see a balance of respect before the end of my life on this earth, for all my potential children, both daughters and sons."
"I don’t want to be the person who isn’t listening when someone talks; instead, thinking about your eyes, your hair, your lips, your voice. But I can’t help it. You can’t tell yourself not to think about someone — that’s just asking to think about them even more. It’s like riding a wave, I guess. I have to wait for this love to crest and fall and then I’ll finally be able to function knowing you’re so far away from me, with no end in sight."
