i get so affectionate when i’m sleepy it’s disgusting
— I want in.
We smile when we’re harassed on the street or hit on by jerks. We laugh at sexist jokes. We learn that when we have strong opinions, we’ll be called bitches and that if we get angry, we’ll be called hysterical. When we say what we want, we’re called pushy or aggressive.
Part of learning “ladylike” behavior is about learning to smile politely when someone is being crude. Femininity has long been attached to passivity and to being docile. Men fight, women giggle and fume silently."

Everything moves very quickly
and I can’t help but tell you I love you
right this instant,
even if it isn’t true quite yet.
Don’t think that I have less to give you
just because I’ve lost so much.
The stars still shine enough to light
up the sky years after
their planets burnt out and
everything is a skeleton with love
if you look hard enough.
Things end too quickly
for us to be afraid of each other.
