“I don’t know what’s the matter with me—why I’m so adept at distance, why I feel so remote from things, why life feels like a rumor.”—From How Literature Saved My Life by David Shields. (via sashawantsmore)
yesterday, a guys asked my "why aren’t you wearing more makeup?". that makes two times this month. why do men think it is okay to talk to women in such a way? sure, I doll it up more often than not, but if I want to walk around in a dress one day and a beat up tee shirt the next, I’ll do it because it’s what I want to wear. not because I think it’s what men (or women for that matter) want to see. guys like him breed feminism.
