My name is Andrea. I once liked my name, but people ruined it for me. No, I'm not a hipster.
Director David Lynch and Isabella Rossellini on the set of Blue Velvet (1986)
just because you dont break skin or use a razor doesnt mean it cant be self harm
just because they never hit you doesnt mean it cant be an abusive relationship
just because you can communicate in some circles doesnt mean you cant have anxiety or socializing issues
just because you have a good day doesnt mean you cant have depression
Do not let your perception of how your struggle should be silence you. Your problems are real and they deserve attention.
"This city is like an open sewer, it’s full of filth and scum. Sometimes I can hardly take it." - Taxi Driver (1976)
Today I am thinking of women too often ignored or even hurt by the feminist movement. Trans women, women of color, disabled women, fat women, queer women, elderly women, poor women, women in prison, women who are sex workers, women who are undocumented, women who are more than one of the above. Today is your day, too. I celebrate you and your strengths.
