"Intimacy is not who you let touch your genitalia. Intimacy is who you text at 3am about your dreams and fears. Intimacy is giving someone your attention, when ten other people are asking for it. Intimacy is the person always in the back of your mind, no matter how distracted you are."

"On Periods: Let’s put this shit to bed right now: Women don’t lose their minds when they have period-related irritability. It doesn’t lower their ability to reason; it lowers their patience and, hence, tolerance for bullshit. If an issue comes up a lot during “that time of the month,” that doesn’t mean she only cares about it once a month; it means she’s bothered by it all the time and lacks the capacity, once a month, to shove it down and bury it beneath six gulps of willful silence."

And when we have our periods our ‘male’ hormone (testosterone) is actually at its highest level…soooooo…

^ not actually true, testosterone peaks when you ovulate (x).  you don’t need testosterone to not tolerate bullshit, either.  passivity is socialized in women, not a result of biology.

I have always loved Tim Gunn’s attention to detail and kind heart. But when an extremely stylish, well put together man—in a very expensive suit nonetheless—shows no hesitation in getting down on the floor to help a little animal find his ball (as his ear is being licked), makes me love him all the more.

Animals (in my experience) and how people interact with them are the true test of a pure heart. And often I’ve found animals avoid people with negative energy and are instantly drawn to those with positivity and a genuine spirit.

I am so glad the editors decided to leave this clip in. It was honestly the most telling thing I’ve ever seen Tim Gunn do.

I met him at a book signing a few years ago. Absolutely charming. I apologized and told him I was really nervous, and he threw his arms up and said “Don’t be nervous! It’s just me!” Tim’s just the best.
