  2. My dad interviewed for a job in Korea yesterday.  It would only be for a few years, and I’m honestly really sad at the potential of them leaving.  At the same time, I’m so incredibly happy and excited that for the first time in over 30 years, they’ll be able to actually make a decision based on what is best for them and not what is best for my siblings and I.

    I’ve been waiting for this moment, and I am so, so happy that all their hardwork and sacrifice is beginning to slowly wind down.

    LOL, even though my mom recently told me she has every intention of supporting me until I’m finally completely done with school and have a “real” job.  I don’t think she understands that’ll be in another 8-10 years.

    i was gonna ask why in anti rape ads the dudes are always like “these women are our wifes, daughters, sisters, mothers” but they never call them people instead of defining them by their relation to men but i know exactly why

    "These women are ours."

    It’s so crazy how the most innocuous, good intentioned statements can perpetuate such pervasive and dangerous thoughts.

    Injustice can’t be fought by these thoughts that attempt to reinstate value through our relations with others.  It’s surface level and it attempts to assign value based on extrinsic factors.  It leads to a culture of codependent relationships and finding an unstable, fickle sense of self worth in people and objects beyond our control.

    Women have intrinsic value because people have intrinsic worth.  The discussion isn’t and has never been about reinstating value into us.  It has ALWAYS been about seeing women for who they are.  Not who we’re connected to, not what we do, but who we are and the value that inherently lies there.
