I still think our names are strange.
Last week, several people said I was “cute” and/or “adorable”. I appreciate compliments but when I’m trying to make a point, I find these kinds of statements like really dismissive. I’m not a pet cat so don’t verbally pat my head yeah? I feel like people sometimes skip over what I have to say because they are uh I don’t even know what. I just know it is irritating and I’d like to be listened to, like actually.
I don’t appreciate statements like “Singhs come from Kaurs” or “Kings are born from Queens”. It connects women’s worth to men. There is no REASON women should be respected but by validating our existence by making it dependent on men, a hierarchy is created; it does not make women equal on all levels but under circumstances. Like they do certain things so that is when they should be respected. Maybe it wasn’t the intention of the statements but those types of words definitely create a type of model.
Aye Maria MIDNIGHT ADVENTURES THIS SUMMER!
You always have a couch in San Francisco to crash on, for as long as you need or want, if that helps at all. If it doesn’t help the offer still stands, though. :)
The temptation to run away again has never been stronger. Except like I’m 20 so in this stupid country I’d just be an “adult”. Like fuck. I can’t function right now.
