"Institutional passing would then include the work you do to pass through by passing out of an expectation: you try not to be the angry person of colour, the troublemaker, that difficult person. You have to demonstrate that you are willing to ease the burden of your own difference."

"Nothing is more painful than believing you're close to glory, only to find out you're still in hell."

"I prayed to the whole wide universe and hoped that God would be in it, listening to me. I prayed and prayed, and then I faltered. Not because I couldn't find God, but because suddenly I absolutely did: God was there, I realized, and God had no intention of making things happen or not, of saving my mother's life. God was not a granter of wishes. God was a ruthless bitch."

"You've got to be practical," Mayor Ledger says, "even in the face of tyrants."
"Is that what you are then?" I say. "Practical?"

Difficult Women | Roxane Gay
post image

"When [the crazy woman] leaves work or the bar late, she calls a car service and when they pull up to her building, she quickly scans the street to make sure it's safe to walk the short distance from the curb to the door. She once told a boyfriend about these considerations and he said, "You are completely out of your mind." She told a new friend at work and she said, "Honey, you're not crazy. You're a woman."

"The basic concept [of Borderlands theory] involves the ability to hold multiple social perspectives while simultaneously maintaining a center that revolves around fighting against concrete material forms of oppression."
