1. A woman’s death is a tragedy; a man’s death is a happening.

“We’re replaceable. We’re easily discarded. That’s the military view at least, but this mentality spreads throughout. A woman’s death is a tragedy; a man’s death is a happening.”

2. In war, we are the pawns.

“War. We are the pawns. I remember when I had to register with the selective service (mandatory). Thankfully, large scale conflicts are becoming more of a thing of the past, and at least in the US, the draft is not something anymore. But it sorta hit me when I filled out my paperwork that if there ever was some massive conflict again, and they had to call people up, myself, all my childhood male friends, all males in my community etc… would find ourselves in fatigues, buzz cuts and shipping off to god knows where leaving behind moms, sisters, wives and female friends.”

3. Men have no choice when it comes to ‘pro-choice.’

“I’ll probably get killed for this, but anyway, I’m very pro-choice. Women, your body, your decision, zero issue with that. However, I think males should have a choice in whether or not we’re financially on the hook supporting an unwanted child. I’d probably step up anyway, cause I have a conscience, but what’s with the obligation? Athletes/actors/celebs are targets for groupies trying to get a payday.”

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
