My (finally healed) feminist tatt. This was a measure of strength for me, speaking out against rape culture and being critical of patriarchal influence is hard when everyone just tells you you’re overly sensitive and can’t take a joke. Its even harder when everyone tells you you’re a weak little girl who isn’t tough enough for a fight. For a long time I believed them.  I thought I was wrong for being different, for not being able to just let it go, and that I was too young and didn’t know enough to question the status quo. I had no one to help me stay strong, no one that shared my views. I am still the only feminist I know. This tattoo is a badge, a reminder that I am strong, and that I can fight like a grrrl.
