i really hate the attitude a lot of men have about how women are so different and mysterious and hard to understand, as if women are some kind of foreign species and not fellow human beings and then complain about women being unapproachable and ‘prude’ 

you don’t get to put me on a pedestal and then complain about me being out of reach

"you don’t get to put me on a pedestal and then complain about me being out of reach”

I’ve never heard wiser words.

-reading in the sun
-movies with dreamy music and elaborate costumes that take place in 18th century European kingdoms

Telling a young girl she can’t wear what she wants because it’s not appropriate encourages the idea that men’s reactions should dictate society’s norms, and that all women are meta-Eves, tempting and ensnaring men with our sultry-eyed gaze. My parents’ culture is steeped in patriarchy, in the philosophy of the one-step machismo machine, where there is just one kind of man, and two kinds of women: the angel and the whore. These limited ideas of masculinity breed men who want ownership of women.
