I went on a journey of self discovery today
Telling a young girl she can’t wear what she wants because it’s not appropriate encourages the idea that men’s reactions should dictate society’s norms, and that all women are meta-Eves, tempting and ensnaring men with our sultry-eyed gaze. My parents’ culture is steeped in patriarchy, in the philosophy of the one-step machismo machine, where there is just one kind of man, and two kinds of women: the angel and the whore. These limited ideas of masculinity breed men who want ownership of women.

Are you thinking about telling me the meaning of your tattoos? Here is a list of things to consider first.

- I don’t care
- Eat a bowl of dicks
- Shut the fuck up I don’t care
