For @Hazlitt, a piece two years in the making, I wrote about gender and the word “tomboy”:…

i grew up embracing the term "tomboy" and its related aesthetics because it was the only way i had to express my rejection of traditional gender roles. this fantastic essay is probing, necessary, and calls into question why labels, while divisive, can be empowering as well. #MSWL

stories where the pain and labor of communication between two people in an intimate relationship is palpable; that capture the ease and comfort that belies that inevitable, seemingly insurmountable distance between them. #mswl
