There was a study done where they got a man to harass a woman in the park
and then they did it the other way around.
Several stopped the man but they let the woman slap and scream
and yank his hair.
They asked a professional who concluded that compared to men,
women aren’t seen as enough to be a threat.

My friend’s principal from three years ago
took his kids and ran
because he kept showing up to work
with bruises put there weekly by his loving wife
and everyone told him to take it like a man.

Last week I listened as a guy laughed off the idea
that a woman could violate him
and I thought of an interview on a news show
where they showed a boy who flinched inwards
every time a girl touched him
because of the exact reason the guy laughed off.

When compared to men,
Women aren’t seen as a threat
so men feel free to take whatever they like.

Women aren’t seen as a threat
so no one takes men seriously
when a woman
breaks them open.

people don’t like me, and i’m okay with it

because the number one reason for the dislike is the same reason people initially give for liking me. i’m opinionated, driven and passionately outspoken about how i feel and about issues that matters to me. that’s a lot for some people, but many like it - until they don’t. because i’ve said something they don’t agree with, or they think i’m like them and i don’t actually say what i mean and must have ulterior motives.

i’m not an easy person to be around. i can see how my personality would be abrasive to some. but i’m upfront and honest about it. what you see if what you get from me from the very beginning. it makes me sad when people don’t take me at my word, but that’s the society we live in. so many people play games, deceive, remain closed-off. then, when they meet someone like me, they get pissed off. because how dare i not give a fuck yet still be compassionate. how dare i be open and honest, for better or worse. how dare i ignore the social convention of “polite discourse” and instead openly discuss whatever it is i’m feeling about an issue.

how dare i exist as i am. how. dare. i.

To be in love with you
is to know that even
on the days you make me
so mad I could scream,
I still want to kiss
the hell out of your face.
