Mica McGriggs

I'm not angry, or even very annoyed, not shocked, or surprised (I'm used to assumption, stereotype, and micro-aggression) but I'm still disappointed. I think I'll keep flying first class (when financially able) just to shake things up.

Being a b*tch doesn't make you a badass. Refusing to compromise your integrity, standing up for the things you believe in, striving for your goals even when it is really, really hard -- that makes you a badass. Trying to make the world a better place? That's badass.
