Support each other without distracting each other
"My advice is always just like, not to focus on anyone telling you you can’t do anything or the politics of your situation, but to just focus on the situation. Think of yourself as not a woman, not a minority, not skinny, not whatever. Just think about your art or the thing you wanna do. Because you can get caught up. I can get caught up. I can spend my entire life doing panels on being a chubby woman of colour writing a TV show and it would be useful to some people, but I wouldn’t be writing my TV show. And all my competition, all the white men who are doing the same thing as me are not doing these panels. They are just getting better and better and better at their job.
So for me, the only advice I ever give women is that we wanna support each other without distracting each other.”
