.:Her Kind:.

I have gone out, a possessed witch,
haunting the black air, braver at night...
A woman like that is not a woman, quite.
A woman like that is misunderstood.
A woman like that is not ashamed to die.
I have been her kind.

~ Anne Sexton

Proverbs 12:25 (NLT)
Worry weighs a person down;
    an encouraging word cheers a person up.

  • Dest: I watched "Escape from Azkaban" last night. You know, the prison?
  • Me: *Laughs for five minutes straight.*
  • Dest: Ohhhh. That's from Harry Potter, isn't it? I meant Alcatraz.
  • Dest: What about that person made you think it was me??
  • Derrick: She has a white face...
  • Derrick: What's a wanker?
  • Me: It just means a derogatory name that people call other people.
  • Derrick: Oh, like "Muggle?"

What is man that You magnify him,
And that You are concerned about him,
That You examine him every morning
And try him every moment?
Will You never turn Your gaze away from me,
Nor let me alone until I swallow my spittle?
Have I sinned? What have I done to You,
O watcher of men?
Why have You set me as Your target,
So that I am a burden to myself?
Why then do You not pardon my transgression
And take away my iniquity?
For now I will lie down in the dust;
And You will seek me, but I will not be.
Job 7:17-21
I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good old days before you’ve actually left them.

Law & Order

Almost every time I speak to teenagers, particularly young female students who want to talk to me about feminism, I find myself staggered by how much they have read, how creatively they think and how curiously bullshit-resistant they are. Because of the subjects I write about, I am often contacted by young people and I see it as a part of my job to reply to all of them - and doing so has confirmed a suspicions I’ve had for some time. I think that the generation about to hit adulthood is going to be rather brilliant.

(…)

Young people getting older is not, in itself, a fascinating new cultural trend. Nonetheless the encroaching adulthood and the people who grew up in a world where expanding technological access collided with the collapse of the neoliberal economic consensus is worth paying attention to. Because these kids are smart, cynical and resilient, and I don’t mind saying that they scare me a little.
