the worst thing you can say to someone is ‘you’re too sensitive’ because that’s basically saying ‘you feel things more deeply and fully than i do and this inconveniences me because now i have to be more mindful of my own actions’
you’re not too sensitive, the world is just callous and stubborn. sensitivity doesn’t make you weak and callousness doesn’t make you strong.
just think about y’all millions and millions of little dark skinned black girls are going to go to the supermarket with their parents this month and when they’re waiting in line at the check out aisle they’re going to look up and see Lupita Nyong’o being hailed as the most beautiful woman in the world god is amazing
when people be like, “women are just NATURALLY more caring, they just are NATURALLY motherly, they WANT to nurture”
and i’m like, i don’t give a fuck about you and i sure as hell wouldn’t want you as my kid get outta here with that goddamn nonsense naturally motherly my ass i wouldn’t want to nurture your pinky toe
When the ground is damp and the air is just thick enough, a good conversation can help realign the planets, even if it’s just a few or less at a time. Maybe by the morning they will all spread out to separate spots in the solar system, but like all things they will realign again, the next time, on their way back around.
