I’d like to be among the first to wish this lovely young woman a Happy 18th Birthday. I was there when you entered the world, & have been cheering you on ever since! You are wise beyond your years & your future is so, so bright! My first born. Thank you for making me a Mom. 💝🎂😘 #scrollthrough
For all the times I’ve felt ashamed while my body was critiqued; too thin, too fat, too curvy, too flat.
For all the times I’ve felt ashamed while sitting through sexually suggestive conversations; furiously blushing, avoiding eye contact.
For all the times I’ve felt ashamed while fending off unwanted advances; discreetly exiting to avoid a scene.
For all the times I’ve felt ashamed while my clothing was judged; too tight, too loose, too low, too high, too sexy, too plain.

“Do you understand how there could be any writing in a spider's web?"
"Oh, no," said Dr. Dorian. "I don't understand it. But for that matter I don't understand how a spider learned to spin a web in the first place. When the words appeared, everyone said they were a miracle. But nobody pointed out that the web itself is a miracle."
"What's miraculous about a spider's web?" said Mrs. Arable. "I don't see why you say a web is a miracle- it's just a web."
"Ever try to spin one?" asked Dr. Dorian.
