~My Hidden Nirvana~

We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, “You can have ambition But not too much. You should aim to be successful but not too successful otherwise you will threaten the man.” Because I am female I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of Joy and love and mutual support, but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors- not for jobs or for accomplishments which I think can be a good thing- but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings In the way that boys are. Feminist: a person who believes in the social political, and economic equality of the sexes.

SO I SAW THE NEIGHBOURHOOD TONIGHT AND IT HAD TO BE ONE OF THE BEST CONCERTS IVE EVER BEEN TO. WE SNUCK INTO FRONT ROW AND I WAS LITERALLY 2 FEET FROM JESSE RUTHERFORD AND HE WAS LIKE THRUSTING INTO MY FACE (?!) AND AROUND THE THIRD SONG I GOT KICKED OUT OF THE SEAT BY SECURITY AND WE WENT TO GO TALK TO MY OTHER FRIEND IN FRONT ROW AND TELL HER WHAT HAPPENED AND HE KNEELED DOWN IN FRONT OF US AND WAS LIKE “ARE YOU OKAY GIRLS? EVERYTHING ALRIGHT?” AND I TURNED AROUND AND WAS LIKE WHAT?! AND HE STOPPED THE WHOLE SONG FOR US LIKE PLS NO AND THEN AT ONE POINT DURING LURK I PUT MY HAND OUT FOR HIM TO TOUCH IT AND HE PUT HIS FOOT IN MY HAND INSTEAD AND STARTED LAUGHING AND THEN HE DID IT AGAIN AND WHEN THE SONG ENDED AND EVERYONE GOT QUIET I WAS LIKE “THANKS JESSE” AND HE STARTED LAUGHING AGAIN AND ALL AND ALL IT WAS JUST THE GREATEST. WHEN THEY LEFT THE STAGE MIKEY THREW HIS BASS PICK RIGHT AT ME AND SMILED AND I HAD TO CLIMB HALFWAY UP THE STAGE TO GET IT AND THEN I GOT THE SETLIST WHEN I CRIED TO THE SECURITY GUARD AND I FEEL SO ABSOLUTELY BLESSED THANK YOU THE NEIGHBOURHOOD AND ESPECIALLY JE$$E YOU’VE MADE MY NIGHT I LOVE YOU
