I’m deeply afraid for the little girls who are going to look up to the new Ghostbusters movie who will probably be harassed by grown men for not liking the original. Please protect them. Protect all them. Don’t let these ugly men harass and bash them.
remind your little girls
with kinks in their hair
and skin as dazzling as the night sky
that they too are miracles,
that they too are warriors.
remind their little souls
of the goddesses they are always meant to be.
Girl gangs with chapped lips and
Scrapped knees. The irony of cum-
Stained skirts and pink rosaries.
Ripped hosiery. The imagery of
Mother Mary the solemn chapel.
Untouched like core school books
And school lunches rotten apples.
Fight like a girl. The schoolyard’s hard.
Thumb the cross kept safe in your bra.
Bloody braces and bloodied thighs,
Never told – and you thought you’d die.
I thought we’d die, lambs to the slaughter.
We are not scared. We are the whole worlds
Daughters - a manifesto of school-girl lore,
Let us recall all the sisters who fell before.
“I know people hate Frozen and they are sick of it. But nothing makes me happier then the light in little girls eyes when you start talking about Frozen. I just wish people understood how magical that movie is for little kids. I guess you could say Frozen is to this generation what Lion King was to mine.”
