It’s summer! Going to make a new the Healthy Twig blog soon. I might try to design a layout.
This blog really should get more action, and by action I mean that I should post more things. Even if it is tumblr weeds (aka reblog).
You will never again be as young as you are right now…
Westerners: I am policed by the male mind
This is a bit outside of what I talk about on this blog, but I feel it needs to be said. Westerners judge societies that tell their woman to cover up, and yet here in the West we tell our woman that rape is because of how they dress. Rape is caused by rapists, why is this so hard to figure out? In an apparent “free society”, it is considered to be common sense for a woman to sensor what she wears in order to be safe. So our bodies cause men to force violence upon us? I am innately a sexual object, and have to counter this by covering up, how is this way of looking at the female different than the societies who tell their woman to wear burkas and hijabs? In the west we do have more freedom than many societies, yet in the west I too am policed by the male mind. Let us remember that we can be hypocrites. Rapists make rape, not the victim.
Currently, I’m cocooning.
