“You know, there’s a solution of the problem of not caring about Harry Potter. Read Harry Potter. And then you’ll be part of the club! And you won’t find it annoying when I talk about Harry Potter for an entire video. Again.”—Hank Green, 24 July 2007 (via speakofmeinpresenttense)
If you are a woman, if you’re a person of colour, if you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, if you are a person of size, if you are a person of intelligence, if you are a person of integrity, then you are considered a minority in this world….
When you don’t have self-esteem you will hesitate before you do anything in your life … You will hesitate to defend yourself when you are discriminated against because of your race, your sexuality, your size, your gender. You will hesitate to vote, you will hesitate to dream.
For us to have self-esteem is truly an act of revolution and our revolution is long overdue.
