England is my home. London is my home. New York feels like, if I have to spend a year living in an unfamiliar city, this is a pretty lovely one to spend a year in, but I will be going home at the end of it, certainly.

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.

Hello there, i dont really know how to react on these things, i read your "rant" and im just worried about you. are you okay? do u need something or someone? and if you dont want to talk about it than thats comepletely fine! like i said i was just a little worried c:

hey there friend, let’s just say i’m mostly angry about what just happened and i hate that people wouldn’t understand what’s wrong with the world these days. i also hate using what happened in my life in order to try to make a point (because it’s not only about me obviously) but even that didn’t help my own father realize how wrong he was. i’m still trying to recover and that is definitely not something that i usually talk about, especially not in a rant, but like i said, i’m mostly angry and pissed right now and i needed to get it off my chest. but i’ll be okay anon, thank you so much for caring and asking, thank you for your support, this really means a lot and i’m so grateful for your concern, it helps a lot. also you reacted just fine, no worries. thanks again.

There is something inherently valuable about being a misfit. It’s not to say that every person who has artistic talent was a social outcast, but there is definitely a value for identifying yourself differently and being proud that you are different.
