Roxane Gay
“I embrace the label of bad feminist because I am human. I am messy. I’m not trying to be an example. I am not trying to be perfect. I am not trying to say I have all the answers.

Roxane Gay, Bad Feminist

“Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It's splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.”
