 I’ve often been told that I’m a bit strange. I hear that pretty regularly, but it is not how I see myself. I feel like I’m extremely normal. I do have a bizarre face that’s a bit out of proportion. I guess that’s why some people see me as strange. — Clémence Poésy

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.

I wish I could pull an Alana Haim on life and drop out of school to pursue my music dreams and be in a successful band with my sisters but I’m an only child and I have the same talent as a teaspoon.

Hiii so I'm gonna vent bc you're the only other tatted up female I know. I got another tattoo recently and my dad saw it today (keep in mind I'm in college and well past legal adulthood). Apparently I'm "trashy," "a tramp," and look like "a fucking circus freak" bc I have some tattoos (shoulder, thigh) and I lost my car. It's also "a turn off for guys" (um ok) and "disrespectful to my family," says my mom. I was very happy about this tat and now I'm just rly upset. Bodily autonomy, anyone? Ugh.

Wait.. are you saying they took your car away??? Can they do that if you’re an adult? 

All I have to say is don’t listen to them. It’s always hard for parents at first. If they aren’t already ok with it when you start. When I got my first visible tattoo my mom told me no man will ever love me because of it. But hey, guess what? Not true. They will eventually get used to them, or stop saying anything about them. I know my mom especially doesn’t like me being covered. But they are apart of me, they aren’t going anywhere. 

They can be upset with you all they want. But it’s permanent, it’s your choice, your body. You can’t take it back. They will calm down. They wont stay mad at you forever. There’s no point in thinking about what ifs now. Just own it, and love it like you already do. And just be you.
