next time someone tells you Muslim countries oppress women, let them know Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Turkey, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, and Senegal have all had female Presidents or Prime Ministers and 1/3rd of Egypt’s parliament is female but the US has yet to even have a female vice president and can’t say “vagina” when discussing female reproductive rights
Until last night, I didn’t know how much I needed to draw a PoC fem!Hook, and turns out I now want to make a version of Peter Pan where Peter is a girl and she refuses to grow up because of all the painful bullshit girls have to go through !
I’m still thinking about how Wendy/Wendell should look like, and I’m just so eager to draw the lost girls it’s ridiculous !
Tavi Gevinson ”Lately I’ve found that I’ve been saying ‘This is how this is supposed to feel’ to myself a lot. So I guess keep your expectations low and know that this was never meant to be easy and the world is huge and people are many and now is such a small moment in time so learn about science and let it put everything in perspective instead of making you feel insignificant. But also, be okay with feeling insignificant. And also, consider what every situation is truly about, even if it’s unpleasant. This requires a lot of energy, so sleep often and don’t waste time on dumb websites or with bad friends who make you feel lousy. Most importantly, don’t listen to me.”
