Message from Writer

Love your body, because you are your body, not in the sense of it being the only thing by which you are judged, but in the sense of it being the vessel for your soul and the protector of your mind.

Ew. She said Ew when two girls kissed on that silver screen. 
My mom.
Uncomfortable. Ella was Uncomfortable when my soon to be girlfriend was sharing a bathroom with her.
”What if she looks at me?”
I can assure you Ella,
lesbian and pervert are not synonymous.
Betrayal. It was betrayal that I didn’t tell my God-fearing baptist parents that I was starting to notice my preference for women,
so we could talk about it
(and they could squash it out of me.)
All of these words and people and still,
only one of each matters.
One word:
Love. 
One person:
You.
