I AM SO EXCITED TO WEAR SWEATERS AGAIN
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.
AUTUMN’S ON IT’S WAY YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS
- HOT CHOCOLATE
- HALLOWEEN AND PUMPKINS
- WATCHING DISNEY FILMS WHILE IT RAINS
- DID I MENTION SWEATERS?!
College is hard and a lot of time consuming work.
Homework is hard. There is thinking involved and having to make your thoughts make sense. But using my brain to think abstractly again is nice.
This piece is wonderful, I highly suggest everyone reads it.
For me this answered and reassured me in a lot of things. It’s okay that I don’t want to start a relationship with someone, even though we like each other. I am 700 miles away and not going to be close any time soon. I am at a very different point in my life. I want things for myself and this relationship would not add to my life, but it would take away at this point. While he is great, it isn’t a good time, nor do I think our feelings, that are probably a minimum to constitute a relationship in the first place, could overcome the negatives and obstacles in the way. This isn’t me being cynical or not wanting to commit or whatever, this is me protecting my interests and life plans. It would not add anything in my life to try and balance a long distance relationship on top of graduate school applications, Navy applications, and 24 credit hours.
I’ve saved this since March to post.
