Being a dedicated, practicing Roman Catholic – or, really, a female member of any organized religion that you automatically stereotype as backwards – doesn’t make me less of an empowered, intelligent woman.
Oh, and also, rolling my eyes at right wing budget policies doesn’t make me any less Catholic. Ahem.
Wearing black framed glasses doesn’t make me a hipster. Trust me, my taste in music, entertainment, and clothing is far too mainstream.
Not looking “ethnic” enough, doesn’t make me any “less” Filipino.
Not being a size 4 doesn’t mean I can’t have genuine self esteem.
Being a millennial postgrad doesn’t make me inherently apathetic, directionless, entitled, or unprofessional.
I just thought you should know.
Hugs and kisses,
