“"Yesterday, we had the follow-up call for the #ManifestingPatriarchy class and the conversation there had me thinking about the ways I’ve contorted myself to try to fit into the standards and expectations that are placed on the shoulders of black girls and womxn. The ways that I’ve actively worked to make myself physically and energetically smaller. How often I’ve made unconscious choices about how I’m willing to show up in a space depending who’s in the room. How I stopped dancing around the same time I started becoming desirable to older boys and men and my body was no longer a safe place to be and partner with, but something to protect and hide." — @andrearanaej captured by @jacquelyntierney #girlgaze”
