“Femininity in general is seen as frivolous. People often say … that to don a dress, heels, lipstick and big hair is artifice, fake and a distraction. But I knew even as a teenager that my femininity was more than just adornments; they were extensions of me, enabling me to express myself and my identity. My body, my clothes and my makeup are on purpose, just as I am on purpose.” – Janet Mock
