#Feminism2018 we women can do anything a man can do

I gotta get serious for a bit - a few things have come up for some of my friends this morning with sexual assault and guys being creepy - I've been trying to learn more about some of the shit that women have to deal with, and I'm really not okay with it, so I want to say something about it.
Sorry if I haven't got things right or I'm missing something, but this is an issue I want to give support to and talk about. Please comment and give feedback, I want to help people to feel comfortable talking about this.
Being creepy and making people feel sexually uncomfortable is not okay.
Respect and consideration - down with the creeps
#respectandconsideration #downwiththecreeps

Also I'm a bit sick 🤮

Commercial feminism 🌷

So - on the train and see a beautiful picture of modern feminism. Couldn’t resist a quick candid shot - though I don’t like taking pictures without consent.... (I came clean laters)... 😍#cutecouple #feminism2018 #ilovelondon #theoverground

I used to be ashamed of my features. My big ears, my big and non western nose, my bushy eyebrows. I hated my curls and the thickness of my hair. I remember one school party when this little boy asked every girl in the room if they wanted to dance with him. Everyone except me. The other girls had boyfriends. Having a boyfriend was a measure of beauty. But then something changed. I noticed that I could charm guys. So I started doing that. I could get almost whoever I wanted. It started to become an addiction. I collected flirts, sex partners and guys. I felt I gained control over my body and sexuality by having sex and by acting like a dude. But that was not the case. I acted as if I was in control, but I still felt empty. And since I wanted to be seen as a strong and independent sexual woman I didn't want to admit what I felt, and what situations I experienced.

Being a woman is always wandering a thin line between being too much or too little. A prude or a whore. A frigid or a maneater. And life is a fucking rocky road of adventure and exploitation.
