And this is not to say that I'm perfect at all; I still mess up, I still get defensive sometimes, and then I try to do better. Whether you have a big platform or not, it's always important to consider. ❤️

Sure, plenty of women did not think those jokes were a problem. But plenty did—and those are the ones that I needed to listen to. We must always listen to the women who criticize us for being problematic, no matter how trivial it may seem to us.

That was 3+ years ago. Since then, I've given dickless-joke talks & workshops all over—including 12 diff countries. As my audience grows, I can’t imagine making those jokes. I can't imagine how those jokes made some people & women feel. I’m embarrassed by that.

A quick note: 5 years ago, when I started speaking a lot, I’d make dick jokes in my presentations. I also talked about my privileges in naive ways. Lots of white dudes thought it was funny, but I was rightfully criticized by some women. I listened to them, learned & I stopped.

My life is like a rom-com that doesn't work out in the end. So a drama I guess.

I know this isn’t for everyone. I happen to not give a fuck though, lol. So chose your own style, but just remember that silence isn’t helping anyone. ❤️

Lastly, chose to not see people if you want. Nothing is more valuable than your mental and emotional health—and if seeing an old friend or an aunt who holds views you find despicable will deeply upset you, then don’t see them. Write them a text or email if you want.

Take a deep breath and look at the notes on your phone. Yes, I have a document that top lines all the bad stuff Trump & this administration has done. It helps me when my brain get’s foggy while talking to a Trump supporting family member. Keep your notes on hand.

Secondly, if you’re up for it, don't be afraid to tell the racist people in your life that they're fucking racist. That doesn’t need to be shouted angrily at them, either… it can be said very calmly—& sometimes hearing it from someone they love can help start a real dialogue.

First thing first: don’t let anyone tell you not to talk “politics” at the dinner table. Remember, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, etc--or supporting someone who gives life to those platforms--isn’t "politics"
