I can’t decide who to focus on
what the american school system teaches us
What every school system teaches us*
"Oh, you know girls just mature faster than boys."
Hmm did you ever consider
that might be because boys’ indiscretions are excused with a simple “Boys will be boys,”
while we simultaneously force girls to grow up too fast by sexualizing them at increasingly younger ages?
Girls, romanticize yourselves. You are a queen. You are a warrior. You are an enchantress. You are a mermaid. You are a goddess. You are all of these things and more, you are the stuff of fairytales.
Women, traumatize others. You are a dragon. You are a wolf. You are a bump in the night. You are the last thing they see in the darkness. You are all of these things and more, you are the heart of their fucking nightmares.
I would frame and hang these in my house in a heartbeat.
i’m tired of thinking of this exchange. i’m so tired of caring about this, i am releasing this into the stratosphere and hopefully i will stop thinking about it.
