Tomorrow we march in DC. Today I choose hope. Today I choose solidarity. Today I choose strength. Today I choose unity. Today I choose gratitude. Today I choose empathy. #whyimarch#womensmarch
In two days, we march in DC. I march because my body is my business. It is MY right to make decisions about how I care for it, share it, and use it. #whyimarch#womensmarch
In three days, we march in DC. I march because my grandmother hoped for a better world for my mother, my mother hoped for a better world for me, and I hope and will always work toward a better world for our daughters. #whyimarch#womensmarch
In four days, we march in DC. I march because womanhood should not be considered a liability. #whyimarch#womensmarch
TFW you get called a slut on the subway and are asked to open your legs, so he can get a better view of what's under your coat. And TFW you tell him that he cannot speak to you like that and his disrespect will not tolerated, but the guy sitting next to you just thanks you for saying something because he was talking like that since W4th street and it was annoying. And then comes TFW you realize that shutting down a cat caller is most important because the guy next to you is just trying to focus on his Wall Street Journal. • It tastes the same as TFW when your friend tells you that when her childhood friend was plastered and tried to force himself on her, she had to talk her way out of it for an hour before she could get herself out of the situation. T(even worse)FW she shares this with another friend and his response is 'I'm sorry that happened to you, but I can't think about it anymore bc it makes me too angry'. • Last time, it was TFW you tried to downplay when a drunk guy grabbed your ass in a crowded bar because you just met the people you were talking to and it's seemed too much//too soon to share. It's TFW you absorb all of the fear and shame because you're afraid to make other people aware that you have a body that can be violated with such ease. • The worst tho is TFW you remember how lucky you are that you can get off the train. You can go home and write about it. You can leave the bar. You get to be a listener. Tomorrow, or the next day, or the next, you'll probably forget about what happened this time. Soon enough you'll get TFW again. With fucked up relief comes TFW you realize it could have been much, much worse.
I'm gonna post a lot of pics of myself from now until the foreseeable future.
