I don’t understand why you feel the need to look down on other women.
Anastasia Tesfaye

Hi Anastasia (I love your name btw): To answer your question — no, it’s not intended to be empowering. It was written as a personal essay to express things I saw and felt at a pivotal time in my life. It was a turbulent time and I had turbulent emotions and my goal was to capture them on paper whether they were flattering to me or not.
