Bee polite, smile pretty.
Tonight the fear I felt while walking home from work begged me not to walk home alone again. And again.
It’s ladies night out
It’s the meat market
It’s questionable …
Is it for us or is it for them?
If it’s for them, well I’m insecure and slutty
If it’s for me, I’m encouraged to stay small
So what? Whatever, I don’t mind
It’s just that
It’s shaming us from the day we are born into our little girl skin. It’s concerning. I’m concerned. I’m walking day and night with one headphone out. I’m walking day and night hoping and hoping and holding my breath.
It’s not safe for us … bring your pepper spray! Put that shit on our keychain, grab that key and make a fist,
Fight like a girl?
I know a girl who was nervous around dad’s friend.
Babygirls worst nightmare came true.
shut up, sit down, stay quiet
Remind her to call when she gets home
Cause some don’t make it home. Yes it is GRAPHIC and TRAGIC and SAD And it doesn’t happen to you, unless it does, But I hope that it doesn’t
it’s too close to home
too close to home.
It doesn’t effect me or bother me.
I’m fine. Self loathing tightens and surrounds my chest and a milky white flag begs surrender from my mind
“Maybe don’t take that night class”
“campus is scary at night”
I’m wondering if it was rape or “just” date rape, something in-between
or just my fault?
They say probably should have been smarter. They say that’s not smart. They say take care. Be safe.
It’s being too much. Not enough and something in between.
It’s a little less cleavage, a little more leg!
It’s expensive makeup and being called fake. It’s being told to do it up but do it down. It’s blaming real feelings on PMS cause they are too real or too bitchy
It’s 1,2,3.. all together now!
The whole world feels like one giant violation. Everyone screaming and talking at you …
In between your ears.
Asking you for everything and, and nothing and everything in between.
It’s less drama. More tits!
It’s needing to be good
It’s needing to be seen
I see it now
Let us be
as LOUDLY as we want to be
as loud or quiet or somewhere in-between as we want or need to be …
Let me be.
