You know, my mom, she liked her wine. She liked to smoke in bed. Virginia Slims. I was playin’ out with the kids in the neighborhood. I could do that with Merle gone. They had bikes, I didn’t. We heard sirens gettin’ louder. They jumped on their bikes, ran after it, you know, hopin’ to see somethin’ worth seein’. I ran after them, but I couldn’t keep up. I ran around a corner and saw my friends lookin’ at me. Hell, I saw everybody lookin’ at me. Fire trucks everywhere. People from the neighborhood. It was my house they were there for. That was my mom in bed burnt down to nothin’. That was the hard part. You know, she was just gone. Erased. Nothin’ left of her. People said it was better that way. I dunno. Just made it seem like it wasn’t real, you know?

Ooh! Thanks! ❤️

3. What do you want to do in the future?

I’d like to go to law school, marry a pretty lady, buy a nice house, have 3-4 kids, and become a judge. 👩🏻‍⚖️

17. What is your favorite smell?

Though I never have smoked, I love the smell of Virginia Slims cigarettes. My grandmother passed recently, and we were really close. We’d sit outside while she smoked and talk about everything. The smell makes me feel closer to her.

28. Comfy or fancy clothes?

Depends. I’ve got an A+ blazer collection for my internship, but usually I’m in jeans, a top, and a hoodie. 

32. Top tumblr users for you?

@drsweetheart is pretty much my Tumblr best friend. She’s literally the nicest person ever, she never fails to give stellar advice, and she always makes me smile. She also has put up with my crappy Spanish, and endless rants. She needs an award, tbh. ❤️

There are so many blogs that I love seeing on my dash, but a few of them off the top of my head are: @heelyqueen@ithinkyoullknxw, @criminal-anatomy, and @pieces-falling-from-me (she and her wife are #couplegoals).

Never forget that Virginia Slims cigarettes- a toxic, highly addictive, cancer-causing product- a product that literally kills people- adopted feminist and women’s-lib rhetoric to peddle their wares… to great success.

Never forget that Virginia Slims cigarettes used feminist language to tap into a new demographic in order to maximize profit and get more people hooked on their dangerous product.

All under the guise of “liberation” “freedom” and “self-expression” for women. 

Sound familiar? Yeah, sounds a lot like the same language makeup companies are using now. 

Corporations don’t care about women’s rights. They don’t care about feminism or “empowerment”. They only care about profits. If they can find a way to sell something to you, they will.
