There is value in everybody’s gift. No matter how hard it is to find or how strange it is.

Women must understand that simply attacking or hating all men is just another form of disempowerment. A woman has to realize that when she makes a man crawl it doesn’t give her power. All it will do is make her puke eventually. Rather than say–all men are bastards– let’s say–all men are infants, until they decide to be men–Calling them bastards is boring at this stage.

When you stop putting yourself on the line, and you don’t touch your own heart, how do you expect to touch other people?

The way I see it, the men that I’m with, whoever they are, it’s like look, you have to accept that I like ice cream, and I know it shows up on my hips but if you can’t accept that, then leave. Go away. Toodles. It is non-negotiable.

To have some honest moments is a rarity. We’re not encouraged to really look at what we’re feeling.
