My brother, who uses a wheelchair, got evaluated and approved this week to start learning how to drive a hand controlled car. He’s gonna take lessons in one and then take his driving test with one, and then he can get his licence and get a car, it just needs to be outfitted with hand controls. I am really proud of him. I’m telling you this story because he just sent me this video of Walt Jr (who has CP just like my brother) with the comment “me in six months”.

It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals. We should stop defining each other by what we are not, and start defining ourselves by who we are.
I want men to take up this mantle so their daughters, sisters and mothers can be free from prejudice but also so their sons have permission to be vulnerable and human, too and in doing so, be a more true and complete version of themselves.
