Ruby Rose: ‘Dreamt Big’ when she felt ‘so small.’
“I dreamt of being a famous singer or an actor who, through my work, could inspire others to be themselves or hang in there. I had no idea how I dreamt so big when I felt so small, but I know it got me through each day. I wanted to be the person I couldn’t find in my life.”
Learning about Ruby Rose is quite inspiring, the way she rose to fame to inspiring millions of people through her actions is nothing less than inspiration.
Ruby Rose Langenheim is her full name and Rose was born in Melbourne to Katia Langenheim.
Katia Langenheim was a single mother at the time and Ruby truly describes her mother as a huge inspiration and role model.
She truly is one inspiring mama!
Further, Ruby was able to attend University High School and Footscray City College.
Isn’t it true that college students often change career paths?
It’s amazing how hard Ruby Rose worked her way to the top, from Orange Is the New Black, Pitch Perfect to Batwoman.
The lack of women starring in high-budget films has increased and that alone is inspiring to see, it’s history right in front of our eyes, I mean, she’s making history every single day.
Let’s take a deeper dive into her life, her story truly inspires those who are having a hard time with situations in life.
Facts about Ruby Rose and being gender-neutral.
She was the goddaughter of indigenous Australian boxer Lionel Rose and the great-granddaughter of Alec Campbell [the last surviving soldier from the Australian Battle of Gallipoli].
Inspiringly, Ruby came out as a lesbian when she was 12-years-old. In fact, her sexuality was a cause of bullying, including verbal and physical abuse from schoolmates.
Sadly, this even led her to a suicide attempt.
The truth is hard to digest but the world would not be as great as it is without her presence. Many things attributed to Ruby suffering from depression [like many other people in the world].
Of equal importance, Rose opened up about her sexuality growing up, sharing how she was saving money to transition from female to male.
“It was in my mind as something I wanted to do and then I just… didn’t. I guess I grew out of it. I even used to sleep on my front because I didn’t want to get boobs ever, which I think worked actually.”
Ultimately leading her to discover androgyny, which allowed her to model with different gender expressions.
“I remember being at a yum cha restaurant with my dad and the owner coming up and saying, ‘Excuse me, we’re trying to work out if you’re a handsome boy or a beautiful girl.’ It was a compliment and I was shocked, and when I thought about it I actually wanted to be a handsome boy.”
Presently, Ruby Rose is genderfluid, sharing
“I am very gender fluid and feel more like I wake up everyday sort of gender-neutral. I think at this stage I will stay a woman but … who knows. I’m so comfortable right now I feel wonderful about it, but I also fluctuate a lot.”
All that matters is that she is comfortable and inspiring others to feel the same, as well as to be proud of who they are inside and on the outside.
Isn’t it great that her short film “Break Free,” literally opened a whole new world not only for herself but for her viewers, those she truly wanted to inspire with her short?
Buzzfeed shared a great article about her short-film and how it was made to inspire others to “break free,” from gender identities.
“With over 100,000 shares and 80,000 likes on Facebook – the film, written and produced by Rose herself – has a lot of people talking. She posted the project along with this brief description.
“A short film about gender roles, Trans, and what it is like to have an identity that deviates from the status quo.”
Unfortunately, not one soul in the universe can please every person alive. In fact, after the project dropped, the gorgeous model spoke up bluntly on issues of bullying within the LGBTQ community, right on her Facebook page.
“You know what needs to stop just as much as homophobia, bullying within the LGBT Community…
A ‘bisexual’ isn’t just greedy.. ‘Pansexual’ exists and isn’t a cop-out.. ‘Straight’ people can be gay huge advocates and blessings to the community…
You can identify as trans without surgery, you can be gender fluid…
in fact, guess what… you can be whoever you are and like whoever you like and WE should spread the love and acceptance we constantly say we don’t receive. I will delete any inter fan/follower bullying.. because it’s so backward and does not belong on my page.”
Lastly, she shared how this is her story [even though there were those who still complained about how she chose to share her story].
“In this film, I am telling my story which involved bandaging my breasts in the ’90s. I had no education on the harm Ace bandages cause as I was just a kid. I do not recommend anyone trying to tape down their breasts to use them.”
Honestly, to those who have a problem with how Ruby Rose decided to approach her life, her choices, her sexuality, her visions for film and modeling…
Well, they can just take a seat in the back because negativity will never have a positive outcome.
So, in turn, why not leave the world better than you found it?
For instance, why not take a stand and tell your story, it doesn’t have to be the same as Ruby Rose’s “Break Free.”
In fact, it shouldn’t be the same, we all have a different path.
Are you ready for an honest ending?
Ruby freakin’ Rose has likely become the female crush of those who are even straight, I mean, damn, she is hot.
