What She Said

literaryjukebox:

Being alone in our present society raises an important question about identity and well-being.

[…]

How have we arrived, in the relatively prosperous developed world, at least, at a cultural moment which values autonomy, personal freedom, fulfillment and human rights, and above all individualism, more highly than they have ever been valued before in human history, but at the same time these autonomous, free, self-fulfilling individuals are terrified of being alone with themselves?

[…]

We live in a society which sees high self-esteem as a proof of well-being, but we do not want to be intimate with this admirable and desirable person.

Sara Maitland in How to Be Alone

Song: “Lonesome” by Dr. Dog

I matched them flowers
I hope pearl jam has a disapproving school marm fetish
Oh just me and the uterus pumpin @acakes29 made me. Happiest day.

I’m pretty sure all I am looking for in a man is someone who will slow dance to Tom Waits -Hang Down Your Head on loop until I’m ready to be done.

the killers and the cops give us special advice 
like cross your legs and act fucking nice
while they kill us off old and fucking young
for breathing, relieving, and having fun
they’ll keep you scared so you have to have a boyfriend
and take your kids away if you’re a la la lesbian
arrest you for whoring then rape you in the car
it’s time we point the finger at who the real criminals are

I don’t give a shit what people think. I know what’s real. I don’t care if people don’t think feminism is important because I know it is.
