The Feminist Guide to Chivalry

Feminism. It’s equality. It’s historically and graphically dependent. It’s Roxane Gay taking down Twitter trolls. And, lately, it’s the latest trend. Hillary Clinton’s are spray painted on Williamsburg sidewalks. The Etsy market for feminist baseball hats is booming, and Forever 21 wants to be woke so bad they’re willing to (allegedly) steal for it, which is so not woke. Even though feminism is becoming more widely accepted thanks to graphic tees and tireless politicians, there’s still one term that most…

You Placed Yourself on the Back Burner.

Don't want those who don't want you.

I see your tears and mine well up. I think of your heart breaking, and mine aches. I feel your pain as though it is my own. If everyone in the universe saw you as I do, you'd never be hurt again. If we all loved each other as we do our best friends, I have no idea what our world would be like. Please stop running conversations through your mind wondering what you could have said differently.
