I went to the Met today

I love my skin!

I am so damn passionate about everything in education and students and teaching and them learning content but life skills too and no one can ever relate to me. I go to school with all these people that are going for teaching and never seem fucking excited about it. Never seem joyful about their work. Never seem happy or content with what they are doing. They never seem to look forward to it. Am I just weird? Because I do all those things and literally my whole mind revolves around education and students and what I can do in the classroom and with my students. I don’t have many people that I can relate to or listen to me talk about it. It literally excites me that much!!! I want to talk about it all the time. Why can’t anyone listen to me talk about what I love?

we’ve taught girls to romanticise nearly everything a boy does. when i was younger i thought it was cute that boys chased the girl even after she said no. i loved it when after a girl moved away from a kiss, the guy would pull her back and force it on. i thought a guy saying ‘i won’t take a no for an answer’ was passionate and romantic. we’re literally always teaching girls to romanticise abusive traits.

❝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.❞

❝Of course I am not worried about intimidating men. The type of man who will be intimidated by me is exactly the type of man I have no interest in.❞

❝The problem with gender is that is prescribes how we should be, rather than recognizing how we are. Now imagine how much happier we would be, how much freer, to be our true individual selves, if we didn’t have the weight of gender expectations❞
—  Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (via 254dreaming)

❝We teach girls shame. Close your legs, cover yourself; we make them feel as though being born female they’re already guilty of something. As so, girls grow up to be women who cannot say they have desire. They grow up to be women who silence themselves. They grow to be women who cannot say what they truly think. And they grow up—and this is the worst thing we do to girls—they grow up to be women who have turned pretense into an art form.❞
