Today I was asked, “What makes a strong female character?”
I immediately realized this was probably going to regard feminism and women’s never ending desire to be “equal” with men. What didn’t make sense to me was that a female came up with the question. If a female wants to be equal to a male, she should not ask herself, “What makes a strong female character?” She should ask herself, “What makes a strong character?” If you distinguish between male and female, you’ve already made yourself unequal. Congratulations. Needles to say I didn’t participate in the discussion.
and i don’t know why it’s difficult to admit that i miss you
and i don’t know why we argue
and i just hope that you listen
and if i hurt you, i'm sorry
