I am sick of hearing people saying: "run like a man" or "fight like a man" or "grow some balls" as a symbol of growing courage.
Well, first of all, I think you can actually "run like a girl" and win; you can "fight like a girl" and be strong and also win; and definitely, there is absolutely no need to "grow some balls" in order to be courageous. In fact, everybody knows that balls are very delicate. The uterus on the other hand, I think is one of our strongest organs. It can hold and push a baby, taking a hell of a beating during labor, then heal itself, and then repeat.
So, When I made this girl with her "Love Pink & Fight Like a Girl" is a metaphor. We do not need to emulate "like a man" to be strong and courageous. We can be all that and while being girls and/or women, always occupying our own skin.
I am hoping to use this illustration in woven patches and pins that would be available on my etsy.
