•Let me tell you a story, it starts like this:

There’s a strong feline gene running through the DNA of the women in my family.
So we devour young hearts.
And they make us feel alive. They make us forget that we are feral women.

•Let me tell you a story, it starts like this:

They cover themselves in blood and go spooking the night. Hoping to find us dancing in the woods. They’re waiting and they’re willing.
They feel adventure when they touch us, tracing our veins like a treasure map. We’re a prize to be won, a game of cat and mouse. It’s far too late before they realize we aren’t the ones with our feet stuck.

•Let me tell you a story, it starts like this:

For centuries it has been told that witches often manifest as felines. Maybe that’s why our eyes glow and the air crackles around us when we enter the room.
We’ve always got something brewing. They don’t even notice the spells we’re constantly whispering in their ears.

•Let me tell you a story, it starts like this:

We love them, because we don’t need them. They find victory in the soft purrs they’re able to elicit from our throats.
We find victory in knowing it is only because we have allowed them to.
They can’t even declaw us, but then again they never really wanted to. They wear their scratches with pride; battle wounds of a war they entered with no intentions of exiting.

•Let me tell you a story, it starts like this:

We are magic and chaos.
We are wisdom and honesty.
We are freedom and experience.
We are irresistible and untouchable.
We are wild and untamable.

Because the truth is, a heart already won is no fun. And that’s how the story ends. That’s how it always ends: when the next one finds himself on our doorstep, fur on his sleeves, with no memory of how he’d gotten there.

A man with a big “Jesus saves” sign that approached me said, “Imagine that life is like a candy store and how a kid feels when he can’t have any. He might want to steal some.” And then he compared his analogy to life and stated that, “When men see women dressed like whores, they naturally desire sex.” #freedom #sexyclothes #safety #respect #victimblaming #rapeculture #catcalling #candy #candystore #desire #lust #feminism #feminist #yesallwomen #girlpower #survivor #StopRapeEducate
