BEING A VICTIM IS NOT INDICATIVE OF A LACK IN STRENGTH AND DOES NOT SIGNIFY PASSIVITY OR FRAILTY

YOUR EXPERIENCE AS A VICTIM DOES NOT SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THE KIND OF PERSON YOU ARE, IT SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT THE PERSON WHO VICTIMIZED YOU

THE WAY YOU EXPERIENCE BEING A VICTIM IS YOURS AND YOURS ALONE AND YOU ARE ALLOWED TO DEAL WITH IT IN WHATEVER WAY IS MEANINGFUL AND THERAPEUTIC TO YOU

PEOPLE THAT SHAME YOU FOR “CLAIMING VICTIMHOOD” SHOULD BE ASHAMED FOR TAKING THE SIDE OF THE OPPRESSOR

"I got a taste of something I had never known — shopping in the men’s department afforded my body the opportunity to take up the amount of space it actually takes up. Masculine people are afforded the privilege of space. Feminine people aren’t. Feminine people are supposed to be so small that they disappear. That they maybe make themselves disappear in that quest for lightness, for smallness, for compactness. Like flowers being pressed until they’re flat. Not all feminine people do it, but I think most of them feel the pressure."
