a preface to the next women's revolution.
by Eli Skipp
i know that i am a sailor
in the same way that i know that i am
i will never admit to it.
last night, i made up my mind:
in an effort at making life worthwhile again
i am going to start the next women's revolution
by loving myself.
shagged and fagged and fashed.
i will do this because we are amazing women.
i will do this because i am not ashamed at being a feminist, and
because we are prettier and
smarter than the men who intimidate us.
and they have no right
this morning i woke up and admired my flyaway hair,
my big thighs, my little paunch.
i know that i enjoy strong coffee more than i enjoy
trying so hard.
Author's Note: "this is what a feminist looks like." i should stop being so vehement.
this one's terrible. urgh.
