I want women to know to just freeze their eggs if they want to. And for younger women, take a minute when you're in your 20's or 30's and just freeze them if you think having kids later in life is important to you. Because life happens - and sometimes things you think will line up, don't.

My Vagina Saved Me

I remember back in 2010, while watching "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," hearing Kandi refer to her vagina (labia) as "beef curtains" and in that moment my whole world began to make sense. Here I was, in my early twenties, exploring my sexuality and beginning to have a very real realization: my vagina did not look like any vagina that I saw. Porn surely had done me no service in providing me with any representation for vaginas that looked even remotely like mine - brown-vagina representation was lacking in the porn industry. For damn sure.

I am not quiet; in fact I am loud and erratic. She loves that I make myself seen and visible in a world that tried to silence her -- to make her less threatening. She stands beside me and demands that of herself in her adulthood -- because if I can, so can she.
