    It's Time to Take Pride in Our Bodies & Brains


    "LGBT people are particularly at risk for brain disease. Lesbians are often overweight. LGBTs smoke at much higher rates than the population as a whole. We drink alcohol to be social, and we drink because we're alone. Too many LGBTs are estranged from their families, not out at work, and isolated in so many ways. These are risk factors that significantly increase the risk of stroke, Alzheimer's disease, and other brain diseases."

    It's not just self hate but the Du Bois-described double-consciousness, or how we let the hate of the world effect us. As no man is an island, we are all in some ways effected by environment.

    You can love yourself but still be effected by the hate in the world. Try not to confuse the two. You can love yourself even more so, stalwart against the hate of the world, but then you risk egomania, so we find the best balances that our experiences and skill sets, that our intelligence and personalities allow us to juggle, showing off as strongly and as smoothly as possible without exposing the stickman inside.

    If easier said, why's no one say? But yes, the doing is more difficult, particularly when even the saying isn't so easy. Life is struggle.
