It’s time for some real talk, y’all ⚠️ . As a society we spend a ridiculous amount of time teaching girls to be nice . The reality is that women are expected to use far more finesse in our every day social interactions and kneecap just about everything we say—and we start teaching that from a very young age . And here’s the thing—how to be a kind human being is an unspeakably important thing to teach our children. Being respectful of others, being mindful of our interpersonal impact, and doing small acts of kindness go a long way . But let me be clear. Being kind should never come at the expense of our personal boundaries 🙅🏼‍♀️ . Research has shown that when little girls stand up for themselves and assert their needs or say no they get labeled as “bossy” or as teenagers, “bitchy.” When boys do the same we call them “brave” and “strong.” . It is because of this that women are more likely to get put in the role of receptionist than of CEO. It is because of this that generations of women have stayed silent when bad things happened to them. . So instead let’s teach girls that being kind is important, but it is never worth losing your voice (sidenote: anyone else remember how Ariel in The Little Mermaid literally GAVE her voice away in exchange for a dude? 🤦🏼‍♀️🧜🏼‍♀️🐚 if that’s not symbolism IDK what is, amirite?) . Let’s teach girls to stand up for themselves, to articulate their needs clearly, and to stand their ground. . Let’s teach girls that being called a bitch can be a badge of honor if it’s because you stood up for yourself and made your voice heard 👊🏼 . Let’s teach girls that having a voice is way cooler than being nice.

Turn your phone off 🚫 So I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’ve been a little quiet on here lately. It’s not because I don’t love what I do or the audience I’ve cultivated, it’s because I needed some time to turn inwards and realign. As I move forward I am excited to bring you more authentic stories about what it means to be LGBTQIA+ and to use that agency to say something meaningful. My dream for my work in the next year is to become more of an activist and to use this platform to tell authentic stories, to share important work that folks are doing and to make a real impact. Thanks to all of you for believing in me and stay tuned for more. I’m back, and I’m ready to fill your feed with beauty, grace and storytelling. Love and light ✨

🌈🌈🌈 #jestemlgbt, a dokładniej - jesteśmy LGBTQ. Jesteśmy parą od prawie pięciu lat i najbardziej na świecie kochamy naszego pieska. 🐶 Marzą nam się podróże po całym świecie, mieszkanie z dużą garderobą i własne schronisko dla zwierząt o standardzie 5-gwiazdkowego hotelu. Oprócz tego marzy nam się też wyprowadzka z Polski, bo wiecie co? Coraz mniej daje się tu żyć i mieć jakiekolwiek marzenia. Osób o przemyśleniach podobnych do naszych jest z pewnością wiele, i aż smutno pomyśleć, że tu w Polsce trudno nam jest się czuć jak w domu. Czy rzeczywiście lepiej byłoby dla naszego kraju gdyby cały ten piękny, tęczowy tłum kryjący się pod hashtagiem „jestem LGBT” zniknął? Nie wydaje nam się. Dlatego zachęcamy Was bardzo do przyłączenia się do akcji @kph_official ❤️🌈 Niech zobaczą ilu nas jest 😊 ______________ #lgbttoja #queer #lgbt #lgbtq #rainbowpeople #rainbowcouple #equalitymatters #queercouple #lgbtcouple #lgbtqcouple #loveislove🌈 #gayisok #queerpride #gaypride #andro #tomboy #polishtomboy #instatomboy #theinvisiblefemme #tomboyfemme #miloscniewyklucza #milosc #lifestyleblogging #cavitude #cavalierpuppy #sohappytogether #thisisklenska
