"Shy Butch Club. Everyone is invited. Even if you're not butch. Because fuck exclusive boys clubs. Say NO to toxic masculinity. Say yes to tender masculinity. I have feelings and I'm. Not. Sorry. We'll hang around our tree house and talk about our feelings and support each other. In summary, I've made these pieces because I feel like I have constantly been shamed for or felt shame since I was a kid for having feels, been sensitive etc. So now I just repress everything. Only when I was 30 did I start to embrace it (but I'm still not there yet with full accepting myself)." - Jihan, Brand Owner of Shy Butch Club (@badgaljivi)
