I just wanted to state to those who may question this, Feminism is not a cancer! You are not dying or died from Lorde saying:
“Hey, men – do me and yourselves a favour, and don’t underestimate my skill,”
First, I am pretty sure that Lorde was directing this at certain men or a particular man in her life. Second, I’ve always believed if someone’s comment affects you personally, (especially those of people you don’t actually know) maybe you should ask yourself why? Personally I have never been affected by the words of someone I don’t know and haven’t done anything too.
The thing I hate is people comparing Feminism to Cancer, when it’s not a suitable comparison and is disrespectful to people who are fighting cancer, or those who have lost loved ones as a direct result of cancer. No one…man or woman…died or died slowly, or had to go a hospice or had their body quickly deteriorate, because of Lorde and her words. Especially if you are taking a complete strangers words and take them personally. That’s your ego hurting, not cancer. True Feminism wants equality between men and women, that’s the point of it. You can’t have that if you hate either gender, that’s not equality. That would be superiority.
Yes, there are women out there who probably do actually hate men and want women to be superior. We are human after all and I think every group will always have it’s extremist. The majority of women however truly just want equality. When you want to see negative things, guess what? You find them. IF you are looking for something bad or good, you will find what you are looking for.
Next time someone writes something, actually stop, breathe and think “Do these words affect me at all? Why do they?”.
STOP, BREATHE AND THINK
Would you travel into outer space?
Probably not, it’s not that I would most likely feel like I was going to explode. I also get motion sickness, which would probably not be a great thing to have on travelling into outer space.
Which country/city in the world (that you have never been to) would you most like to visit and why?
I have Greece and Rome on my bucket list. I mainly want to visit because one of my favourite subjects is ancient history. I love all the history and the culture that came from those times. The stories and the food!
What could you do to breathe more deeply today?
I need to keep stressing out so much. I had a traumatic experience over the weekend and I am extremely unsure of how to “let it go”.
Complete this sentence: This creamy peanut butter sandwich could really use some …
Are you usually late, early, or right on time?
I am on time all the time (unless something unforeseen happens) I cannot abide lateness. I think it is just plain rude, the amount of people I’ve met in my life who are late for social events, but never for work. I think it’s a complete respect thing. Saying that though, if you say anything to them about they get really annoyed with you.
If you were or are a writer do you prefer writing short stories, poems or novels?
I do like to write, but it’s more for personal writing. I do all three really. They are just going to be published and no one shall ever see them! =D
Where did you live at age ten? Is it the same place or town you live now?
I don’t live at the same house now then when I was 10 (did English make my sense?lol) Where I live we have this joke that no matter where you live in my state you will always know someone who knows someone else you know, even though you have never meet each other.
Would you rather be able to fly or breathe under water?
I would rather be able to breathe under water, it’s one of my fears to be drowned alive. Being able to breathe under water would definitely help with that fear,lol
