And I realized that when people say “It’s a joke, don’t take it so seriously,” they’re really telling you that they see nothing wrong with what they said and they’re not going to apologize for it.

They aren’t saying “I’m a witty person with a cynical view of the world,” they’re saying, “It’s your fault I made you uncomfortable because you let yourself be angered by something offensive I said. I take no responsibility for this.”

Just be fucking honest about how you feel about people while you’re alive.

some thoughts are so private that you only share them with a therapist or 17,000 people on the internet

"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."
