When I was growing up particularly during puberty in my teen years I was so miserable because I elicited so much teasing and meanness from my teenage cohorts.
I was always trying to make up for my size to compensate. So to get people to take you seriously you have to come at things with a great deal of strength. You have to emphasize that the way you are is unusual. That you don’t come along every day.
I can’t be a man. But I can embrace the head of a man the intelligence of a man the spirit of a man.
