Don’t mistake (v.).

Don’t mistake my lowered gaze for my belief in outdated traditions. The only tradition I know is kicking ass.

Don’t mistake my lowered gaze for my religious views. The only religion I know is humanity.

Don’t mistake my lowered gaze for being a good girl. I am awesome.

Don’t mistake my lowered gaze for a lack of confidence. Challenge me to a face off and I will show you why.

I am only lowering my gaze to ensure I don’t step on the remnants of your paan. To ensure I don’t step on your filthy saliva.

I am lowering my gaze to apologize to my dharti ma on behalf of humankind for treating her like a toilet.

I am lowering my gaze in shame.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
