I just remembered two things that were once said to me and I feel like sharing because it’s tragically funny:

When I was 16 my friend told me “I had the biggest crush on you until I got to know you”

When I was 17 my English teacher told me, out of the blue, “you’re a very beautiful girl, but you’re damaged on the inside.”

  • Parents of little girls: when a boy is mean to you, it means he likes you!
  • Ten years later: she keeps dating abusive men. We don't know what's wrong with her.

"THIS PICTURE WILL NOT CHANGE THE WORLD, BUT I STILL NEED FEMINISM AND I’M GOING TO REALLY, REALLY TELL YOU WHY":
-Because I got called a whore for wearing a short plaid skirt when I was 10
-and because when Nujood Ali from Yemen was 10 she got divorced
-Because black girls’ names became my classmates’ favorite “joke” when I was 11
-and because when an 11-year-old girl in Texas was raped by 18 men the New York Times wrote of how the girl “dressed older than her age”
-Because I started counting calories when I was 14
-and because when Malala Yousafzai was 14 she was shot in the head for trying to go to school
-Because I heard a boy greet a girl with “hey slut” today at age 16 -and because when a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, Ohio was filmed being raped by two boys at a party while unconscious the CNN reporters talked about how tragic it was because the rapists had such bright futures as athletes
-Because I will have to watch my drink at all bars and parties when I am 22
-and because when CeCe McDonald was 22 she was sentenced to 41 months in prison for defending herself against a man who screamed transphobic, racist insults at her and then slashed her face with a bottle
-Because no matter what age I am the biggest threat to men will still be heart disease, and the biggest threat to women will still be men.
-Because it is not just about me, because it is not just about anger, because it is not just a JOKE, because it is not just about “hating men,” because it is not just about girls with vaginas, because it is not just about ending “slut”, because it is not just about white straight girls in Rookie magazine, because it is not just about writing on backs, because it is not just about the fact that gay men are “fags” but lesbians are “hot,” because it is not just about pictures of thin white girls being the only google image results for the search phrase “beautiful women”, because it is not just about writing signs, because it is not just about what she was wearing or how many times she said yes before she changed her answer to no, because misogyny is not just about one thing and feminism is not just about one thing and it is not just “a trend” and it will not “happen” in just one way.
-And because yes. It is about equality for EVERYONE, but first and foremost it needs to be about equality for girls, because they are not treated equally to men, in every single sense, and you are not going to take feminism away from me and call me bossy/hostile/aggressive and make this about yourself or make it into a joke, because truth be told, I’m not joking and I’m tired of explaining. If you want to call yourself a feminist, you work hard to spread feminism, you do not turn this into a contest of whose struggle is greater and constantly demand to know what you can get out of feminism personally. Feminism is not just about you, or me, it is about everyone. If you’re male and you’re tired of men being stereotyped as hyper-masculine, soulless, sexist, inherent leader-tyrant creatures, then go out and prove the patriarchy wrong and fight for girls, like someone with a soul who believes in equality would. Then, yes, feminism will be about everyone.

Went downtown to check out the set! It was so, so, so cool. They’ve covered a bunch of streets entirely with dirt, made some old train tracks, there’s a train, a bunch of fake storefronts. And there was a group of men talking about shots they wanted to get and stuff. None of the men were Guillermo del Toro haha but they seemed pretty important.

It’s very neat to see all the work going into one day of shooting. 

 I loved it. I’ll try to get down there on Monday but I’m not sure how close they’ll let people get. I imagine they’ll shut down all the surrounding blocks.

Today somebody told me I was “like wikipedia” because I know just a little bit about pop culture.

It was a proud moment for me.

Crimson Peak starring Charlie Hunnam, Tim Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain is filming in my city on Monday. I’m not sure if any of the main actors are going to be here but I’m going to go check out the set this weekend. Maybe I’ll just hang out downtown all weekend, hoping Tom Hiddleston just happens to be wandering around enjoying this gorgeous city.

I applied to be an extra but my hair is too short.
