There’s a social media campaign going on right now to spread the word on why we need more diversity in our books. It’s really fantastic and inspiring and I am so proud to be a part of it. You can learn more about it here and here.
As a writer and a mom, this campaign is also deeply personal for me. My daughter is 1/2 Korean and 1/2 Jamaican. She loooooves books. I think she might love books more than she loves anything else (including mama!). One day she’ll be able to read them on her own and I want her to be able to find herself in them. I want her to know that girls that look like her can be anyone, can do anything. 
We need diverse books because this is my family.

like there are literally millions of people who suffer from mental illness but can’t access decent care, so every time i see someone go on a tangent about self-diagnosers i want to ask them what they think those people should do instead.

i am dead fucking serious. tell me. what do you recommend they do? because it kinda sounds like you don’t give a fuck, and that makes you an ableist, classist piece of shit.

I hate it when women don’t realize that I’m just carrying tires. Literally always carrying them. Tires 24/7. Hitting that rubber from the minute I get up to the minute I go to sleep. Small tires, big tires, giant tires, it don’t matter to us men, am I right fellas?

We’re living in an era where capturing moments using our phones is more important than actually living these moments with whoever is beside us.

this. 

we’re living in an era where some underpaid employee has to scrub this bullshit off of the public transportation, just because you had a moment of pseudo-profoundness that no one would be aware of if it weren’t for your use of technology in the first place

the world is incredible. there are girls in this world, and there are also dogs. you can put melted cheese on any type of potato.  sometimes flowers grow even when nobody is there to water them. right now on this same planet where we live there are people who are in love with each other kissing each other on the nose. emotions and colours are both things that exist. everything is so great
