Seriously wish I was the type of person that could command a room. Seriously wish everyone went quiet and listened when I talked. I have a very weak presence amongst groups of people, and I am very uninterested in speaking around more than 3 people at any given time. I’m very, very soft spoken and unimportant. People either don’t hear me, don’t like me or don’t care. This is partially my fault for never being louder/more confident but it’s pretty difficult for me to speak without bleeding, so I much more easily assume the role of the observer. If I could talk to people without feeling like my organs are being continuously sliced open, I would. I want casual, carefree conversation but I don’t know how.
You know every time you think you’re being empowering by saying “all girls are like this” or “all girls need this” or “all girls want this” or “all girls blah blah” you’re likely being the opposite of empowering.
Like, I really hate hearing any “all girl/every girl” phrases. Stop.
Shoutout to sinuses for giving me a swollen face.
I feel like I’m re-living my 8 year old me chubby days, but just intensified.

There was a really beautiful sunset outside (very intense reds and oranges and pinks) and I called my grandma to come have a look. She told me she had a friend who always used to say we should be thankful for clouds otherwise we would not know that these colours even exist.
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”
Mmm but if Reeva Steenkamp shot Oscar Pistorius instead I’m gonna guess that she would’ve been found guilty of pre-meditated murder and nobody would’ve made her out to be the victim in the situation, even if it was an act of self-defence. And without a doubt the fact that he’s a world famous male athlete would’ve made Reeva even ‘guiltier’.
