I love kittens.

Male fantasies, male fantasies, is everything run by male fantasies? Up on a pedestal or down on your knees, it’s all a male fantasy: that you’re strong enough to take what they dish out, or else too weak to do anything about it. Even pretending you aren’t catering to male fantasies is a male fantasy: pretending you’re unseen, pretending you have a life of your own, that you can wash your feet and comb your hair unconscious of the ever-present watcher peering through the keyhole, peering through the keyhole in your own head, if nowhere else. You are a woman with a man inside watching a woman. You are your own voyeur.

Margaret Atwood, The Robber Bride (via monkeyknifefight)

Shit. Too many feelings about this.

(via soharam)

THIS PASSAGE STILL FUCKS UP MY HEAD. THE MALE VOYEUR IS STILL CREEPING. We are always apologizing the omnipresent male figure in the room. SCARY.

(via comelivewithmeangel)

this quote still gives me the chills. so fucking true.
