  • If you
    were married to yourself
    could you stay with yourself?

    My house
    would be frightening and wild.

    When they ask you how you are
    don’t say fearful. Narrow your eyes and kiss your teeth but don’t say afraid.

    Don’t say more scared and at sea in these latest days then ever before, or floundering. Don’t say lost without cause or that you’re not always sure you can make it.
    Straighten that back
    you are sex. Look like sex.

    Wipe the blood from yourself.
    Don’t tell them what went on when the sun was busy in another street.

    Do that Thing The People do.
    The people who are fine, fine, fine
    until you get home and find them gone, gone gone.

    Keep suffering because it’s your God Given right.
    Brawl with your being. Fight the bad fight.


    If they ask you how you are
    don’t say stolen. Don’t say forgotten, passed over,
    ignored. Don’t you dare say Orphan.
    Don’t say beaten by the system
    oppressed and disturbed
    and don’t you dare say disappointed
    don’t you dare say damaged.

    Smile with all of your teeth, even the rotting ones.
    Even the rotting ones.

    When we live in a world where you can access free content of naked consenting women in less than 5 seconds, why are people still invading the privacy of non-consenting women for nudes?

    Hint: It has something to do with people feeling entitled to making any woman their personal porn, even if it violates or humiliates her in the process.

    “ A hustle is a hustle, regardless of how the next man feels about it. It would be rather unintelligent to NOT capitalize on your pain. Writing a book [of this nature] is as much therapeutic as it is lucrative, kind of like rapping. Why is it taboo for a woman to be as honest in a book about her life as rappers are on albums? ”

    “ Alone, I am a superhero. With you, I am a mere mortal. ”

    Being married was hard on my throat,
    said he.
    Being held
    was tight round my neck.
    Look, I still bear the marks
    said he.
    Listen, I still can’t breathe.

    I’ve been owned for centuries,

    It is love. But I will not stay.
    My father

    It is and
    it will be that way.

    women: *are killed, beaten, raped, and put down constantly for hundreds of years just for being women*

    woman who is also a feminist: *cracks a joke about men on the internet*

    men: ”see this is the problem with feminism it promotes hate speech they’re no better than sexist men why can’t i punch women in the face and why does the guy have to pay on dates #equalitarianism”
