man who hated women

I am angry because we teach girls to keep a watchful eye on their drinks while they are out rather than teach people not to drug others
I am angry because we teach girls how to prevent being raped rather than tell people that rape is wrong
I am angry because for every dollar a man makes a woman makes 79 cents
I am angry because when Brock Turner raped a girl he only got 6 months and then was released three months later for “good behavior” while graffiti can earn you five years
I am angry because when people here feminism all they think of is man-hating women on their periods rather than people who want equality and fairness
I am angry because people preach about their right to free speech but when a woman speaks out about unfair treatment they get shut down and called nasty names
I am angry because when someone says girls want equal treatment they immediately think “oh since we are equal we can hit girls!” rather than teaching them violence is wrong
I am angry because feminism is seen as a dirty word
I love my country and my rights. And as a citizen of this great country I am allowed to protest peacefully and freely and complain about unfair treatment when I see fit so hopefully things will be changed

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
