I went to a Women Who Rock exhibit today and it was totally gnarly.

I can’t believe I continued to date this person for the length I did. I feel like our relationship was such a sham because I was like NAR lite for a portion of it. Like seriously… no fart jokes? Never again will I tone myself down to appease someone in that fashion. Take me as I am, duh!
I genuinely would love to know where this shirt went. I am positive it got sucked into the abyss that is known as my mother’s laundry room.

I hadn’t really heard of Nicki until this, but I’ve loved her ever since.
Also, we can all agree that Akiva’s verse skyrockets this thing into the stratosphere, right? His pronunciation of “kettlecorn” and the fact that he “came out clean?”
Men who can’t cook, clean, or even do their own laundry are not “cute” and “in need of a woman to care for them”. They are spoiled brats so dependent on gender roles that they never bothered to learn the minimal skills to take care of themselves.
Plath was a smart, powerful woman plagued by her mental health. Reading her work takes me back to school.
Sometimes the weight of the world feels heavy. Sometimes, being strong in the fat community feels like a deed not just for me, but for every other fat girl fighting.
We must learn from the strong womyn before us. We must read their words, study their actions, watch their movies, and discuss their art. We must listen to the womyn, here and now, speaking out for womyn. We have to protect the smart, talented womyn fighting the weight of the world.
Protect all womyn. Support all womyn.
