- Another laundry day because the cat is stupid. Also... I just need to vomit some thoughts. If you don’t like vomit, you can just scroll past my post...instagram is handy that way. So the whole #metoo thing... I posted me too. as my facebook status, and I had to think about it, because I am pretty open here about my past, but on facebook I tend to be more guarded. I suppose because I’m easier to find there and feel more exposed to my past. I have to be honest, when I was reading the posts of some people at first i was like β€œreally? you call that harassment? that’s nothing!” because i was comparing it to my own experience. But then i quickly, like in the same breathe, chastised myself because I realized what i was doing. And then later that day, after I posted, here come all the β€œI’m not doing the whole #metoo thing because”...and any number of reasons why... and i was frustrated all over again because I felt what these people were doing was the same thing I had done... somehow invalidating the people who had been brave enough to share, in some way, an experience that had made them feel less than human... less than valued...I wanted to defend myself, my post, but I realized that would be a waste of time. Those people have their own reasons for not saying #metoo. I said it because I want people to know they are not alone. Their stories are important. They are valued. I want people to know that sexual assault and harassment can happen in all kinds of relationships, in all kinds of places. I want church people to know that it needs to be addressed in churches and families and marriages. I want you to know that you are valued and that no one has the right to make you feel like property. #youarenotalone #youmatter #yourstoryisimportant #dontgiveup

- Today I wanna celebrate all my fellow Transgender sisters and brothers out there or everyone who have to prove something to be accepted, because guys it's hard. My family at first seems were okay with my transition but as time goes by I've learned that they are not respecting the person I'm about to be and the fact that I am a woman. One of my relatives tell me today that in front of her I can't tell to be beautiful and that people who tell me that are lying to me. It's like, Trans girl are always ugly, can't be beautiful and can't have compliment of any kind because these comments will be false. It's like, you can never win, you have to accept to be a freak that nobody will ever like. Because I'm a man and I have nothing to do with a real woman. I think that's one of the more disrespectful things to tell to someone that it's going trough a transition. Well I'm here to tell guys that this words will not affect my spirit and words should not be able to do the same to you too. Words can't hurt us no more and more importantly we have to not let people have all this power over us. Someone one time tell me that people will have over you the power you'll allow them to have. And yes, I think I am beautiful. But not in the instagram/model/it girl type of way. I am beautiful because I'm me, despite the negativity and the hate. I am beautiful because I have courage. I am beautiful because I am strong. Everyone deserve to think that they are beautiful because beauty doesn't come in one way, but in multiple ways. People should have open mind and open heart to understand that it's not beauty what define a beautiful person in the more restricted way and , most importantly, we don't have to change ourselves to be beautiful,we are showing and people should accept more and more types of beauty. Guys don't give up, ever. I will not. Are you with me in this???? #keepgoing #transisbeautiful #bestrong #beyou #loveyourself #dontgiveup #fightingback #dontloosefaith #love #beauty #weareallbeautiful
