boys and girls

boysandgirls

For every girl who is tired of acting weak when she is strong,
there is a boy tired of appearing strong when he feels vulnerable. For every boy who is burdened with the constant expectation of knowing everything, there is a girl tired of people not trusting her intelligence. For every girl who is tired of being called over-sensitive, there is a boy who fears to be gentle, to weep. For every boy for whom competition is the only way to prove masculinity, there is a girl who is called unfeminine when she competes. For every girl who throws out her E-Z Bake oven, there is boy who wishes to find one. For every boy struggling not to let advertising dictate his desires, there is a girl facing the ad industry‘s attacks on her self-esteem. For every girl who takes a step toward her liberation, there is a boy who finds the way to freedom a little easier.

  1. Immens ze gesinn, dass munch Leit net zu méi pertinenten Reaktiounen fäheg sinn. Ech gesi mech bestätegt.

    Gudden Text!

  2. Ech waar mir ziemlech secher, daat vum Grommel eppes zum Thema Faarwe géif kommen. Ech fannen den Text och gudd, en huet mech bewegt, dofir hunn ech en gebloggt. Schéin ze gesinn, daat en aaneren Leit och gefällt!
    Dofir maachen ech daat lei jo och. Heinsdo.

  3. [Héi stoung een Kommentar vum Chris, deen ech ob seng eegen Nofro hin geläscht hunn. Ebenfalls hunn ech d’Äntwert op deen Kommentar geläscht, well deen soss keen Senn géif erginn. Joël]

  4. Grommel, waat gett et do ze laachen?

    Wann et drem geet eppes ob engem Blog ze zenséieren, zemols bäi deser Thematik, ass et wierklech net un dier ze lol’en.

    Flotten Text awer. :)

  5. Joel:

    Läsch deen ‘lol’ da wgl och well deen woer op dem Chris seng (lo geläschten) Remark bezunn. Net op d’Zensur. De Mr Nic huet jo grad bestätegt, dass dat falsch eriwwer kënt.

  6. Arghs, ech läschen guer naischt méi. Den lol waar am Spamfilter hänke bliwen, dofir hunn ech net gesinn/opgepasst wéini en genee komm ass.

    Zensur? Ech hunn daat geläscht, waat de Chris gefroot huet, ze läschen.

    Kee Problem. Ech wollt just kloerstellen, dass den ‘lol’ net op DENG Erklärung innerhalb vum Chris sengem Post bezunn woer.

    An jo, et woer keng Zensur. Ech hat just Zensur geschriwwen well den Nic Zensur erwähnt hat. Mäi Fehler.
