Thirty-something Texas boy. Lover of graphic and interior design, science, Ninja Turtles and anything shiny.

One of my Facebook friends just posted about how she’s fed up with “well-meaning” male writers who talk about women’s “frustrations or life-choices.” That she would rather these men stop speaking for them and instead allow women to utilize these spaces as a platform to speak about their own struggles. She goes on to say that her frustration grows the more accurate the article is to her own experiences, and that she doesn’t need a man to tell her that she doesn’t need male validation or to speculate about her motivations or goals.

Then she says, “I feel a lot of this applies to treatment of PoC issues as well.”

As a male, I can agree with what she’s saying and say, OK, women should have their voices heard and as long as men keep talking, it’s easy for their voices to be drowned out.

However, as a PoC, her last comment, being from a white lady, seemed awfully hypocritical to the entirety of her post.

Just an update on el ojo mal. The swelling has stabilized and actually reduced a little from earlier today. There’s also very little pain. I hope that means it’s on it’s way out! #swolleneye #me

Swollen eye, day 2. The pain is pretty bad when I shut my eyes. But you can see the difference between the two eyes pretty clearly in this shot. #swolleneye #eye #allergy #stye #me

Woke up with a sore, swollen eye this morning. No reason why, but it’s promising to turn into 2008 all over again. Don’t remember that, just google “swollen eye”. #ojomal #swolleneye #eye #allergy

Imagine an ice cube in the middle of this bowl, and you have my favorite meal from my childhood. #suppers

I’m definitely my father’s son. At 11 p.m. I see something sparkly on the street, stop my car, get out of my car and pick this up. Pretty big rock too… Too bad it’s fake! #diamond #sparkly #pretty #shiny #magpie #rhinestone #glass
