🚺A true story about International Women's Day🚺
  1. •
    My boyfriend Paul mentioned he wrote a paper on feminism today.
  2. •
    (He's a sociology minor)
  3. •
    I said "that's cool" in a fakely chill way, even though I wanted to be like "THATS RAD!!!"
    And ask him a million energetic questions.
  4. •
    A minute later mentioning that sometimes I feel awkward talking about feminism, and how much it means to me, because I don't want to come across as overly opinionated or a bitch, since I hate confrontation.
  5. •
    "Even though I know that's hypocritical haha!" I added lamely.
  6. •
    He said yes, that's contradicting what you believe.
  7. •
    You're going against what you believe if you are worried about being perceived that way.
    (I was all dammit, you're right...)
  8. •
    If you have opinions, you may run into some conflict, and that's okay.
  9. •
    And I said, "Yeah. Thanks."
    It was so sweet and the best

    I hope that everyone has a person who listens to them and builds them up like this. And I hope to do this for others. Here's to Paul, here's to Women's Day! 💕
