Dear old men,
I noticed that when you asked me for my phone number and I rejected you, you were surprised. Are you kidding me? You are old and not attractive. I am young and definitely prettier than you. You sort of remind me of my creepy great-uncle. I thought about telling you that, but I didn’t because I’m nice.
In the process of hitting on me you mentioned your wife several times. Don’t you think that that’s a little bit weird? Maybe next time you try and pick up a teenager you should leave your wife out of the discussion. I am not impressed by your surfing story and I am definitely not impressed by your minimal Spanish vocabulary. Also, Please don’t touch me. I am not interested in touching you. Please don’t touch me.
Beyoncé's super secret album just dropped this morning, causing quite a stir.In one of the songs, “Flawless” she samples Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's TEDx talk on feminism. In the song she says:
We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller
We say to girls – you can have ambition, but not too much
You should aim to be successful but not too successful otherwise you will threaten the man
Because I am female I am expected to aspire to marriage
I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important
A marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support
But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same?
We raise girls to see each other as competitors not for jobs or for accomplishments,
Which I think can be a good thing
But for the attention of men
We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are
Feminist: A person who believes in the economic, social and political equality of the sexes.
this is me toasting a marshmallow with a blow torch in my dorm a few weekends ago
Such a weird night
I enjoy this a lot
