If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.
~ Audre Lorde (February 18, 1934 - November 17, 1992)
We have a double standard, which is to say, a man can show how much he cares by being violent - see, he's jealous, he cares - a woman shows how much she cares by how much she's willing to be hurt; by how much she will take; how much she will endure;
