Awkward English Nerdd

An angel headed hipster who loves cowboy boots, sun dresses, tattoos, nerds, coffee, reading, Chicago, knitting, people watching, listening to NPR, bike riding, and speaking French. Not all at the same time though.

Meet new people. Go to their houses. Look at their bookshelves. Pay attention to how they take their coffee. Don’t get into bed unless you’re tired or excited. Don’t get out of bed unless you’re ready. Work with passion. Work with rage and sympathy for the world. Smile to yourself sometimes. Remind people that you love them. Listen to songs on repeat. Make your own meals. Try to think like the animal that you are. Drink. Learn to really drink. Drink yourself into someone new. Drink yourself into someone old. You won’t live forever. Nobody does. Savour hellos. Savour goodbyes. Hope. Above all, hope.

  3. Because a girl who mocks men is a bitch, and a boy who mocks women is joking.

  4. Because a girl who has sex is a slut, and a boy who has sex is a man.

  5. Because in a murder, the killer is at fault, but the blame of rape is often put on the victim.

  6. Because we teach girls how not to get raped instead of teaching anyone simply not to rape.

  7. Because a woman should put more clothes on if her outfit makes a man uncomfortable, because his self control is her responsibility.

  8. Because feminists just need to chill out.

  9. Because a 22 year old sex-obsessed virgin can murder 7 people, and the problem is that someone should’ve just slept with him.

  10. Because not all men are predators, but yes, all women are prey.

There’s a fucking womanifesto for you.
