“She’s done such fabulous work this season which you will see. She’s an absolute pleasure.” - Peter Capaldi on working with Jenna Coleman
Broad City 1x10
We are the girls whose fathers tell us,
“wearing a dress while walking alone
in the city is more dangerous than
driving without a seat belt.”
We are the girls who are taught that
saying sorry after no is our protection
instead of the pocket knife or pepper spray.
Being polite is the only shield we’ll have to offer.
We are the girls who must rid our spaghetti
straps and V-necks on hot days, because simple
minded boys can’t seem to control their
“sexual desires” when seeing bare skin
on the shoulders and back.
We are the girls who are expected to be
smart, but not too smart because we’ll
not be seen as sexy to the male eyes.
“She must have a pretty face behind
that book she’s buried in.”
We are the girls who must add, “please.”
Before asking someone not to touch us,
as if we are asking permission instead
of giving demand.
We are the girls whose principal insists
to look at what we are wearing, “what do
you expect? Boys will be boys.”
One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequence.

I was 17 when I wrote that,” she reminds me. “That’s the age you are when you think someone can actually take your boyfriend. Then you grow up and realise no one takes someone from you if they don’t want to leave.
My favorite thing to do is observe white people when they’re eating Indian food and you can visibly see the tears coming out of their eyes and I’m just like “yesss cry bitch cry that’s for colonizing my people how do u like that curry now bitch?”
