state of the me:
- on leave from work because my jacked-updedness level began to outweigh everything in my life. or rather, i finally began to realize to what level it has outweighed everything for a long time.
- hair news: growing out the shaved-sides Nia Long/Angelina Jolie in Hackers ‘do into what I hope to eventually be a Marceline the Vampire Queen
- anxiety sucks
- mega ultimate butts
- but my ‘do is locked down and my eyebrows have returned to the bad brown bitch level that they once held unwaveringly
- so that’s cool
- but I have a fantastic partner. so i can’t complain too much.
when u paint your toenails and you go ahead and leave a blob somewhere on the pinky toe to make it look like maybe you have a nail there if you squint
all these people getting married and havin babies and shit
me and my boo steady eatin cereal for dinner and watching cartoons
I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -
Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.
Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.
If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.
And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.

"We are used to ignoring our own bodies. “These carrots are too spicy” we complained as a child, only to be told no, they were sweet, that the music wasn’t too loud, nobody can hear lights, what you are experiencing is invalid. We heard: you are invalid. You do not experience the world the same way as everyone else, and therefore, your experience is wrong. You learn to ignore the ever-present pain because nothing can be done about it, but then you have a kidney infection and others get mad at you for not noticing sooner. But why should you trust your body when it is always wrong?"

"Whatever pain achieves, it achieves in part through its unsharability, and it ensures this unsharability through its resistance to language. “English,” writes Virginia Woolf, “which can express the thoughts of Hamlet and the tragedy of Lear has no words for the shiver or the headache.” … Physical pain does not simply resist language but actively destroys it."
