"Don’t brag about yourself let others praise you. -Proverbs 27:2"
"Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It’s a way of understanding it."
"There’s no point to a guy yelling, ‘Hey sexy baby’ at me out of the passenger window of a car as it speeds past. Even if I was into creepy misogynists and wanted to give him my number, I couldn’t. The car didn’t even slow down. But that’s okay, because he wasn’t actually hitting on me. The point wasn’t to proposition me or chat me up. The only point was to remind me, and all women, that our bodies are his to stare at, assess, comment on, even touch. ‘Hey sexy baby’ is the first part of a sentence that finishes, ‘this is your daily message from the patriarchy, reminding you that your body is public property’."
"I admire women who are effortlessly stylish, who laugh easily, who are genuinely kind, and who tell the truth about themselves."
"Breathe. It’s only a bad day, not a bad life."
"when someone’s flaws are not flaws in your eyes, you’re fucked."
Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.
