“One bright pansy popping through a sidewalk crack will get weeded or stepped on; it's not until twenty fabulous flowers bust through and the pavement is ruined anyway that someone decides maybe it isn't a sidewalk at all, but a flower garden. So please, for the love of gender--go bloom.”
S. Bear Bergman, The Nearest Exit May Be Behind You

“So please, for the love of gender- go bloom. Or water someone else while they do.”
S. Bear Bergman, The Nearest Exit May Be Behind You

“I am doing the best I can. I am hoping I am good enough. I am holding you close, as close as I can, hand cradling your head and breath on your hair, my whole body curved around yours, sheltering you as best I can, trying to remember that I cannot keep you safe, but I can keep you loved.”
S. Bear Bergman, Butch Is a Noun
