‪So far my 30s have been about embracing stuff I missed out on in my teens and early 20s because I thought it was “too girly” and “cliché.” Turns out wearing pink, listening to pop and doing facemasks is just fun.‬

Gender clichés are toxic. Yet somehow the loudest voices on the topic seem to be bio-essentialist (i.e. "girls just don't like technical stuff, but love pink ponies") and self-proclaimed abolitionists. The truth seems to be in the murky, grey, fuzzy, nonbinary middle, and if I had one wish, it would be society not shaming people anymore for who they are, what they like, who they love.

Also I like your facial expression in that mud thing. Looks strangely comfy. 🤔

(The mud thing looks strangely comfy. Your expression seems more like "just you dare and say something". 😁)

@laura for me it is figuring out health, because you know "i am too young for this"
