Men, I would like to give this opportunity to extend your formal invitation. Gender equality is your issue, too. To date, I’ve seen my father’s role as a parent being valued less by society. I’ve seen young men suffering from illness, unable to ask for help for fear it will make them less of a man. I’ve seen men fragile and insecure by what constitutes male success. Men don’t have the benefits of equality, either. We don’t want to talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that they are. When they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence. If men don’t have to be aggressive, women won’t be compelled to be submissive. If men don’t need to control, women won’t have to be controlled. Both men and women should feel free to be strong. It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals. We should stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by who we are. We can all be freer and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom. I want men to take up this mantle so their daughters, sisters and mothers can be free from prejudice but also so their sons have permission to be vulnerable and human, too and in doing so, be a more true and complete version of themselves - Emma Watson for HeForShe UN campaign

He’d seen more death than anyone else in the unit. To the rest of us, death was some rogue wave that would crash down on us from time to time. Hell, Roe was standing out in the surf every day, taking one shot after another.

I’m nervous

And I really wish I wasn’t. Because nerves mean I care and it is better to not care. Because if you don’t care then you can’t really be disappointed, right?

I’ve had my DNA tested on 2 different sites and uploaded my results onto a third in the hopes of finding some kind of paternal relative. So far, out of thousands of DNA matches (thanks, Ashkenazi genes), I’ve only gotten one significant match. It is labelled as a first cousin, but I suspect this guy is maybe my great uncle. Sadly, he refuses to talk to me. At all.

Today 23andMe is changing their settings- everyone who never opted in to see close relatives will automatically be opted in (unless they’ve opted out in the past month, I think). This means if I have any close relatives who tested but never wanted to see close relatives, they might appear on the site- on my list- today.

So, I’m nervous. And I wish I wasn’t. Because chances are a close match will not magically pop up for me in the next 24 hours. But I can’t turn the “what if…” off in my brain. And I just don’t want to feel disappointed and alone again.
