This is really beautiful and resonates with me on many different levels. I hate that the patriarchy has instilled a tightening in my chest at the success/compliments of other women. It feels like we have to scrabble to win over the tiny piece of the pie awarded to women as a group, and as a feminist, it's hard to constantly remind oneself that this is not the case/other women shouldn't bear the brunt of our frustration with this.
One small issue - "some [women] will be actual bitches" - what is an "actual bitch"?
@deathcabforcutes I guess I'm a Beytheist because I don't believe in gods, but I love that picture of Beyonce...
(Also, BRB going to listen to Sandcastle Disco because I've never heard it and I love her True EP so I'm sold!)
THIS IS FASCINATING.
(as a side note, you're winning me over HARD, Jazmine.)
A woman takes a lover. A female lover named Karen. They ride off into the sunset together on a horse, completely fulfilled. Man is still in bar.
This is the first one of these I've read despite being a huge Chloe Angyal/Feministing fan - I LOVED it. I rewatch so many childhood favorites only to be disgusted by their political messages, and sounds like She's All That would be one of them!
I'm over the moon about that first picture. Look at the set of that jaw!
"I'm just maturing really rapidly, I guess. I'm buying red wine." hahahah
I love all of this so much!
(Thanks for getting rid of that awful racism-denial comment! Much appreciated, eds.)
@greyeminence Hell yes, I love you for posting this.
@jannelle If you're annoyed by sentiments about women denying their femininity/being just one of the guys - you agree with the author! She's poking fun at how ridiculous those claims are.
