No. I don’t fall in love. I glide silently into love with both swords drawn.
"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….
First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”
But here is what I think you should know.
You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.
You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.
You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).
You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.
In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.
In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”"
Can you understand the mindset and logic used by the opposite spiritual opinion? An atheist understanding the belief in a higher power and vice versa.
I’m actually really good at seeing from the perspectives of others. It’s a great skill to have.
Would you rather spend one year with your one true love just to never see them again or the rest of your life with second best?
Life with the second best. I’ve spent most of my life being physically disconnected from the people I had the strongest sparks with. It’s painful and emotionally daunting. I would happily share my life with my second love.
You can eliminate one of your five senses to substantially strengthen the others, which one and would you do it?
Smell. I actively need my sight and touch to draw and cannot imagine a world without that. I get far too much enjoyment from music and food to surrender my hearing or taste. Smell is important to me… but out of the five… that’s the one to go. And I’d totally give it up if it was a guaranteed way to increase the effectiveness of those other four… no doubt.
"Hey ______ kinda looks like you."
It’s just a much better way to give that information as it makes them feel more special and important than the common version.
