Alright, ladies. Who’s read this? . -

I have always had a strange relationship with being a woman. As a child, I was a tomboy in a dress. I raced bikes, was a masterful tree climber, and I taught the neighborhood boys how to do backflips on the trampoline. I had very little fear and would do most anything on a dare. Sure, I liked fashion and dancing—but I hated being labeled “a girl”; I intuitively sensed the limitations. -
.
I was more at home in my skin around guys and had very few girlfriends. The judgment and expectation I felt from women regularly made me say, “No, thanks.” Quite frankly, I didn’t want to be female. I loathed the role women played and pitied any woman who was looking for a man to define her worth. -
.
I questioned and cursed my own beauty when I recognized how much value was placed on it; at 16 I almost shaved my head out of protest. I have a VIVID memory of being 9-years-old and having a friend’s older brother leer at me. He watched us from the deck, while we were in the yard choreographing a dance routine to Bananarama’s song, ‘Venus’. He called his buddy over and said, “Look at her. It’s criminal, man. She’s gonna be such a babe.” I was as naive as they come. I thought being a virgin was a denomination—like being Baptist. I remember feeling so violated by the way he looked at me—a feeling I think most any woman can recall at will. It might have been the first time I was made to feel that way, but by 14 I felt that way anytime I went out in public. -
.
It makes me sad now to realize how much of my life has been spent wishing I’d been born a boy. It’s not been a conscious wish, but it’s there—just below the surface. Spending my whole adult life raising a child alone hasn’t helped the matter. My son’s father chose to walk away (an option, as a woman, I didn’t have). When I told him I was pregnant he very calmly replied, “Well, if it’s a girl, I’m moving to Mexico. If it’s a boy, call me when he turns 9 and I’ll teach him to play ball.” Even in that very statement I was reminded that it’s better to be a boy.

Bit late on the #boomsupfriday but had a big couple of days out in #Prahran sorting nearly 80 cube of building rubble and slabs off this site and giving it a quick scrape to get rid of the excess spoil ready for the plumbers to come in and do their thing. #komatsu #bobcat #truck #excavator #excavate #excavator #alexfraser #starbucktrucks #digdigscrapescrape #siteclean #rubbishbinonwheels #melbourne #onlyoneparkingfine #construction #earthworks #tipper #friyay

Do you also ever crave this level of intimacy? Are you tired of playing games in conversation, too? Exhausted from the effort it takes to stay on the surface, desiring to feel instead the exhaustion of vulnerable connection?

We built this city on rock and roll.....

Within Earth's cratonic roots—thick "inverted mountain" sections of rock beneath most continental plates—quadrillions of tons of diamonds rest, well below where we've ever been able to excavate or drill: https://buff.ly/2n6MCMz… Seen over at @coolhunting
