(P.S. look at how streamlined my social media is!! I'm told this is called "branding.")

Is it valid for me to kind of hate programs like Guys Read I mean ???? yeah lets give boys MORE special attention in education.
Not to mention most of these programs are based on the assumption that boys will only like books about war, trains, and fart jokes (aka enhancing the assumption that there are “boy” things and “girl” things) which is doing nothing to promote equality tbh.
sometimes I kiss people I shouldn’t kiss and let them unbutton my jeans sometimes I leave English class without asking and walk in angular circles until I can hear the blood rushing under my skin sometimes I run until I can’t breathe sometimes I sit in the rain sometimes I sleep for six hours in the middle of the day
sometimes I drive too fast and listen to my music so loud that it hurts sometimes I drink until everything goes black and I don’t remember talking about you all night (even though I do)
sometimes I cry about books and about people who died hundreds of years ago sometimes I don’t cry even though I want to more than anything sometimes I ignore the people I love sometimes hold myself to keep everything in because you are not here to do it
sometimes I think I’m alive sometimes I think I probably never will be”
