"I don’t think people love me. They love versions of me I have spun for them, versions of me they have construed in their minds. The easy versions of me, the easy parts of me to love."

"The first time I noticed my
backbone was gone, I was
bent easily in half saying
“anything you want, you
can have; anything that’s
mine is all yours.” Love was
a one-way road - my hipbones
and collarbones looked
better on your floor than
under my skin; I gave you
everything that let me stand
up straight and held your
shoulder for support. The
first time I said no, I vomited
on the carpet and couldn’t
stop apologizing - how dare
my lips speak for the body
they’re on. I’m too soft to be
boneless too. I’m too vibrant
to have no spine to grow on, so
I’m taking back all my misplaced
bones. I’m learning to tell you
what’s yours to share and what’s
mine alone."

"

We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.

"The reason women are turning you down for casual sex seems to be that, for one thing, a lot of you are calling them sluts afterward. Also, a lot of you aren’t bothering to try to be good in bed."

People say “phase” like impermanence means insignificance. Show me a permanent state of the self.
