OF LETTERS

Protolinguist. Loves metadata. Jesus freak. I'm not original. I just reblog things; they are not my own. Anachronistic and cultivating a dangerous sense of nostalgia for a past that never was. Since 2011

Powder your nose, paint your toes. Line your lips and keep ‘em closed. Cross your legs, dot your I’s, and never let ‘em see you cry. Run and hide your crazy and start actin’ like a lady ‘cause I raised you better, gotta keep it together even when you fall apart. This ain’t my mama’s broken heart

I do not spew profanities. I enunciate them clearly, like a fucking lady.

Think about what it means to be ladylike and all of the adjectives that go along with it: elegant, cultured, classy, sophisticated. To be successful at being feminine means being successful at being private, keeping your body’s natural functions behind closed doors and never letting anyone know they exist. It means to be constrained, that you do not let your legs spread wide in public transportation and you do not make noises that are harsh on the ears. It means presenting a polished, shiny surface to the world at all times, one that allows others to project whatever they wish onto you while never showing too much of your true self.
