a little somethin' somethin' that makes my eyes happy and my heart full. i'm rediscovering my soul in between the chaos of the world. all we need are the simple things in life... none of the photos posted are mine, unless otherwise stated. thanks for stopping by :)
I am a feminist because I would like to walk to my car without my keys and pepper spray clutched in each hand. I am a feminist because more men have beaten me than kissed me tenderly. I am a feminist because the police interrogator asked what I was wearing. I am a feminist because calling a sensitive man a “girl” is an insult. I am a feminist because of the devaluation of all things “feminine.” I am feminist because male work is also privileged work. I am a feminist because I would like to be paid as much as my male counterparts for the same job. I am a feminist because I have been called a “Femi-Nazi,” as if wanting my gender to be regarded equally is the same as murdering eleven million people. I am a feminist because I am a human being, and I deserve to be treated as such. In short, I am a feminist because there is a need for me to explain why I am a feminist.
