*~Free Figure Revolution’s Body Posi Rally at VCU!~*
[Here’s the entire album of amazingness!]
I think my issue with writing right now is that I so desperately want to portray a woman’s condition as flawed but I then default to the damsel in distress characteristics. But at the same time, that’s still part of the story— there’s not a point in anybody’s life in which they were completely independent of others and never needed saving, even if for a minor issue.
I mean, I could also have the person save themselves, but then I face the conflict of where that power honestly comes from. And all of my current brainstorming seems incredibly superficial in that the process of attaining the power is temporary and doesn’t at all remain with the character in the long run. Which goes against the idea of character development.
Maybe that’s the story then— our tendencies to remain the same despite overcoming obstacles. But that falls so flat to me because I know that human nature doesn’t function in that sense. Yes we are often resistant to change, but our greatest quality as humans are our abilities to change.
I don’t know what to do…
Things that confuse me
Why are people intimidated by me?
Why do people think I’m so reserved?
Why do people expect me to be classy?
Why do people think they know what’s best for me?
Why do people think I care about what they want for me?
Why do people shame me for going overboard once in a while?
Why do people think that I know better?
Why do people expect me to be a lady?
Why are people surprised by the fact that I’ve had a typical teenager experience?
Why do people think that they are allowed to speak for me?
Why do people think that I can’t think for myself?
Why do people think it’s okay to make decisions for me?
Why do people think I’m somebody else I’m actually not?
please be kind to retail employees this holiday season
that guy who’s sold out of the ps4 doesn’t need you making a scene- chances are you’re the fifth person to yell at him today
if nothing else, give your respect to people this Christmas. It could mean a world of difference to the people that don’t get paid enough to deal with the harassment I’ve seen
