Rowan Blanchard opens up about why she’s trading in apologizing for existing in this amazing new essay for Rookie mag.
The 14-year-old Girl Meets World star wrote, “My codependent relationship with self-blame and self-deprecation as a means of self-defense has held me tightly since I can remember. It has felt safer and less terrifying to silence myself to a degree than to actually engage with people, and make them take responsibility for their own actions. I have treated, specifically, male feelings and ego as superior to and more fragile than my own.”
She added, “My first memory of rejecting my emotions to improve another person’s outlook on me was in the third grade, although I’m sure it happened unconsciously even before that.”
Then Rowan dives into some very real examples from her life, and even gives tips on how she’s learned to trust herself more.
“Will life be easier if you stop playing pretend? Yes and no,” Rowan wrote. “Some things get easier, and so some things get much harder. Then those hard things get easier and new things become harder. It all repeats itself, somehow. But if you listen closely to the tiny voice in your head, the calm one, that is you talking. And if you turn up the volume on it and try to listen, it blocks all the other voices out.”

Rowan Blanchard has labeled herself as queer, in a series of tweets over the weekend.
While chatting with fans over the weekend on Twitter, the 14-year-old actress opened up about her own sexuality.
“In my life – only ever liked boys. However I personally don’t wanna label myself as straight, gay or whateva so I am not gonna give myself labels to stick with – just existing,” Rowan wrote, which sparked fans coming to praise her and yell at her all at once.
When one fan questioned her statement, Rowan added that she was “open to liking any gender in future…is why I identify as queer.”

“My mom put me in theatre and I buried myself in my creative ability to live another life. I was facing not only a crowd but also myself. The internal battles and my parents’ divorce are the reason I am capable and in turn, you are capable,” Kiersey writes. “What they called flaws, I call my fuel. Without you, one can’t make a movie, without each other we can’t make progress. Who I am has given me a platform that hopefully allows others to find the love for themselves through my films or music. The encouragement of self-expression is the first step to changing the world.”
Rowan added in the feature, “I want teens of all races and sexes to know that their voice is valued. An essay I wrote on intersectional feminism received a lot of attention in August. I was discussing how feminists have fought for equality in many different areas, but many times have overlooked how race and gender intersect the sexism that one faces. I feel, also, that teens are often doubted. There is a feeling that we are allowed to have opinions but they won’t ‘matter’ until we are older. I don’t believe there is an age limit for opinion and intelligence.”

Rowan Blanchard just keeps being our favorite in everything — especially when it comes to women’s rights and speaking out for things that she believes in.
In a new essay with Rookie mag, the 14-year-old actress and activist writes about how she was apologizing for everything and how she’s not going to be ‘sorry’ anymore.
“My first memory of rejecting my emotions to improve another person’s outlook on me was in the third grade, although I’m sure it happened unconsciously even before that. We often read books in which dogs died so, naturally, I would cry before, during, and after class. When I realized that crying = boys making fun of you, instead of delivering a lecture about the layers and power in of female emotion and the history of its being used to undermine women (eight-year-old me didn’t really know about that yet), I apologized,” she writes.
Rowan continues, “And when on the first day of middle school, an eager/nervous/anxious/EXCITED TO HAVE A LOCKER!!! me was greeted by teachers who warned me of suspension because of the length of my skirt, I apologized. That same year, when I was just becoming aware of my body, a boy I had formerly considered a friend told me my arms were “so hairy they could be Godzilla’s,” so I told him I was sorry. On that same day, I snuck a razor out of my mom’s bathroom and shaved my legs for the first time, praying that the boy hadn’t seen how Godzilla THEY were. That was also the week I snuck concealer out of my mom’s bathroom and applied it at 6:30 AM because that same boy had told me my under eyes were dishearteningly dark. I’d apologized about that, too.”
