have you considered that maybe i am not pleasant?

maybe i wear lipstick so that
you will see my pretty pink mouth
wrapping around a coffee cup lid
and be distracted enough not to notice
that i am intelligent and powerful;
a threat.

maybe i draw my brows into high arches
so you will look at my unimpressed skepticism
and overlook my spiteful glare
as a trick of my silly, girlish routine.

maybe i wear my heels so high and thin
so that i grasp your attention with the sway of my hips
as i listen to the click-clack-click against the floor
and know that if you should try to overpower me
i walk on sharpened knives.

maybe when i laugh at your worthless jokes
i am really baring my fangs
waiting patiently for the day
that i sink them into your neck.

i am not made of porcelain pleasantries;
you will find that these things are my armor
to keep you at a distance
so you do not step on me and shatter
my fragile control.

i am not a husk — i am not wilting.
i am turning my head
so that the fire blazing through my eyes
does not catch on the accelerant of your sweaty palms
and burn your bones to dust.

i am not your pretty girl;
i am a fury, a faerie, a phoenix —
a forest of werewolves and wendigos
that will carve out your chest
so that the next time i paint my pretty pink lips
i will taste the copper tang of your dying breaths.

foxfaced:

repeat after me:

  • women owe you nothing
  • women’s bodies are their own
  • nothing you do will ever make you “deserve” a woman
  • you wanting to get your dick sucked will NEVER be more important than a woman’s right to feel safe/comfortable/like an actual human being 
  • how women select partners is not the problem male entitlement is the problem

Once it was [Kanye] West’s turn to speak again, he said, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people”. West’s mic was silenced, and Myers turned, visibly shocked by the comment. […] George W. Bush would later call it “one of the most disgusting moments” of his presidency.

Yeah, not when he stole the Presidential election in 2000.

Not 9/11.

Not Guantánamo.

Not Bagram.

Not all the “rendition” and “interrogations”.

Not when they crafted a media campaign to get people to support another occupation.

Not when we littered Iraq with radioactive waste because we loved our DU shells.

Not when we used White phosphorus on Fallujah in a way that can only be described as a city-wide collective punishment.

Not when that war ate up the national guard and reserves so that the federal government just didn’t have the resources on hand for when Katrina broke the levees.

Not when the Bush administration continued to bungle the response to that, leaving thousands of mostly Black people dead or homeless.

No, Kanye’s the gross one, supposedly.

And Bush said that after he left office I’m pretty sure, so we’re talking about him also disregarding how he bailed out the irresponsible banks while home values tanked.
