Never tell a man your name. Never mention where you live, or any place we go. Never let a man take you anywhere; if you take one into the alley to neck, tell one of your sisters, and come back as soon as you can.

Never fall for a man so hard you can’t pull your heart back in time.

We’ll leave without you if we have to.

“I wish I could tell you how lonely I am. How cold and harsh it is here. Everywhere there is conflict and unkindness. I think God has forsaken this place. I believe I have seen hell and it’s white, it’s snow-white.”

britticisms:

I wrote a story about Naughty Nail’z, my favorite nail art salon in Chicago for Tipsy Zine (You’ve seen me rep for them many times before). Here’s a couple of images from the corresponding photo shoot (shot by my friend Helen Maurene Cooper) which took place at Dulcelandia (a dream paradise where I routinely almost ruined my stomach as a kid) & Rico Fresh Market in Chicago.

28 Feminist Writers Recommend Books Every Man Should Read

britticisms:

I’m one of these feminist writers and I’ve got a recommendation for you, fellas. My choice was Written on the Body by Jeanette Winterson, a book I read the summer after I graduated college. I became a little obsessed.

I was thinking about that book recently along with a couple of additional ones I read between the ages of 21 and 24. That was such a heady, transformative moment for me. I’m feeling mentally stagnant. So much of my reading feels like required work. I miss the constant pleasure of reading for pleasure. That was a special time, full of books and novellas that felt like little secrets, ultimately shaping me into the woman I am today.

I am also one of those feminist writers, and I chose The Left Hand Of Darkness. <3
