District 12 through and through. The black represents all the charcoal or whatever it is they use in that district. Coal? Soot? Whatever. The red are the flames, not unlike the ones that engulf so many young men and women miners every year. They do it so we can have common goods and I really like appreciate that and stuff. So in honor of their deaths every year, for a week, I wear makeup for district 12. My way of giving back. And thanks to Covergirl, I have a sanctioned makeup kit that matches their overall colors and themes of the mining district. I can’t tell you how difficult it was matching colors to a place you have never (and will never) step foot in! Whew.
People hate her, they really do. Did you know that to Yoko someone is a verb in America? It is something that boys say if they’re hanging out with you too much and they’re going to school or they have a band. It’s almost a myth that’s used to suppress women. Y’know, ‘You’re gonna Yoko me. You’re gonna destroy me.’ And this woman put up with racial inequality from Fleet Street, she put up with being accused of breaking up the best band in the world, she put up with people’s idea that she castrated this man and then, worst of all, she had her best friend, her husband, the person she lived for, die in her arms in front of a fortress that she’d hidden herself in for 20 years. And I just feel that the world media should apologize to her because she handled it with so much dignity.

As long as women are using class or race power to dominate other women, feminist sisterhood cannot be fully realized

So yes, you’re fine just the way you are. There’s nothing wrong with how you act, or what you wear, or who your friends are. But if you want to try something new, there’s nothing wrong with that either. It doesn’t mean you have a bad self esteem or you’re not grateful for what you have. I’ve tried to change many things about myself, but it doesn’t mean I love myself any less than I ever did. In fact, I think it’s made me appreciate myself even more. I’m walking around, feeling like a completely exclusive piece of art that I created on my own.

The most powerful thing anyone has ever said to me: “You deserve to take up space.”
SO MUCH THIS.
