As women, we are taught to be tiny. To have small bodies, to never be imposing. The ideal of our gender are thin and childlike, hairless and dainty. We are defined by our bodies; defined by our control over them. We are taught to obsess over our physicality and to be repulsed by our desires and intelligences.
We are taught to walk scared late at night. We cradle our keys between our perfectly manicured fingers, walking gracefully like a baby antelope in a herd of lions. That our virginity defines our character. That I am a frigid bitch if I do not fuck him, and a dirty slut if I do.
this breaks my heart. Because I have done exactly this. You see people looking, so you smile, but it almost hurts too much, so within an instant its gone again, and you are back to thinking about what a fucking failure you are. Maybe im just reading too far into this
oh wow this is so fucking powerful I don’t even know why, I had tears in my eyes and I couldn’t stop watching this!
This makes me so sad
