How many times have you been told that you’re showing “too much skin”? Or that your outfit is “too deep”? Or “too revealing”? Or how many times have you been told that “people will see you like this, it’s inappropriate”? Or that “it’s only for me to see”? Or how many times have you been asked “who are you dressing up sexy for”? As if being attractive is a bad thing. As if being with someone implies that you can’t look hot in public.
I’m not actually a proud supporter of the #freethenipple “movement” (which is banned by instagram by the way). I’m not suggesting that topless pictures or “inappropriate”, in your words, are a breakthrough towards feminism.

And later, we wake up with immense pain.
A war of 5 days.
Laying straight on bed, with those sticky pads rubbing and striking our thighs.
You see us walking with legs wider.
Because it’s inconvenient; it’s so uncomfortable.
Understand.
We feel so hungry, but really don’t wish to eat anything.
