For Sarah by Megan Falley
"I know what it is to be the one
who stashes monsters in her own closet. To hope the houseguests don’t notice the coyote-shaped howl, how you hear it
even miles from home. It crescendos
over every conversation, every song.
How avoiding it is like leaving. a house with every unsteady candle lit.”

Can we talk about how Beyoncé is one of the few female entertainers who will proudly and publicly declare herself a feminist but white feminists desperately keep trying to strip her of that identity and force it onto white women who still think feminism = man-hater.

I find it interesting how society doesn’t care when the media sexualizes women, when men sexualizes women, when school and the government sexualizes women. But the second a woman is in control and sexualizes herself willingly it’s wrong and disgusting.
