It’s about equal pay,
but it’s also about feeling safe on the streets at night;
about being able to wear whatever I feel like;
about deciding what to do with my body,
with my time,
with my life.
It’s about breaking free from tradition,
from how things used to be,
from how things used to be done.
It’s about respect,
respect to all human beings.
It’s about kindness.
It’s about common sense.
It’s about understanding that we are all just souls;
and that now you happen to dwell in a male body,
and that I happen to reside in a female one.
