Time magazine has a lengthy piece on Miley Cyrus and her new Happy Hippie Foundation’s #Instapride campaign, and how she used to feel about about the difference in dating men and women:

And then when I was with a girl, I felt like, ‘Oh s—, she’s going to need someone to protect her, so I’m going to need to have this macho energy.’ And that didn’t feel right either.”
