I'm not the dragon. I'm not the princess either.

College student with senioritis definitely setting in. (What is homework/attendance/I hate you Gen-Ed classes go away.) Also, cover letters suck. Let me write you a haiku telling you why you should hire me instead. Actually, no. Just hire me.

Always seeking stories and adventures. Bring on the Odyssey years, and let them be full of triple chocolate cake and travel and boys with broad shoulders. And employment, that would be nice too.

Most girls are relentlessly told that we will be treated how we demand to be treated. If we want respect, we must respect ourselves.

This does three things. Firstly, it gets men off the hook for being held accountable for how they treat women. And secondly, it makes women feel that the mistreatment and sometimes outright violence they face due to their gender is primarily their fault. And thirdly, it positions women to be unable to speak out against sexism because we are made to believe any sexism we experience would not have happened if we had done something differently.

I cannot demand a man to respect me. No more than I can demand that anybody do anything. I can ask men to be nice to me. But chances are if I even have to ask he does not care to be nice. I can express displeasure when I’m not being respected. But that doesn’t solve the issue that I was disrespected in the first place.

I can choose to not deal with a man once he proves to be disrespectful and/or sexist. But even that does not solve the initial problem of the fact that I had to experience being disrespected in the first place.

As a young girl, I wish that instead of being told that I needed to demand respect from men that I had been told that when I am not respected by men that it’s his fault and not mine. But that would require that we quit having numerous arbitrary standards for what it means to be a “respectable” woman. It would mean that I am not judged as deserving violence based on how I speak, what I wear, what I do, and who I am.

Kittens + books = love

Snuggled with my own kitty, a new book, and a hot cup of tea on this particularly dark evening. Sleep well, loves.
