“The response that I get from my clothing is a general acceptance of the fact that I am a woman. Yes, my history reaching womanhood is different than a lot of women. But, nevertheless, I am still a woman. And this projects an image that this is who I am. I am strong. I am self-assured. I’m confident. I’m not someone to be trifled with. And, I demand respect, and I will give you respect at the same time.”
