My grandmother has always been the kind of woman to wear bright blue eyeshadow, even as a 64 year old woman. She wears a big, bejeweled ring on every finger. She curls her hair inward instead of outward. She wears heels that come to a point at the toe, and is never caught without a pair of “nylons” to protect her modesty. I find her curious. I find her curious because she is so many things at once, and the biggest thing she is, is “glamorous”. And although she and I have different concepts of glamour, I want to embody mine as beautifully as she embodies hers. Ever since I was old enough to try on high heels at the department stores, I’ve wanted to be like her.
And probably because of that, I always listen when she talks… But there is one thing that she has shared with me, that has stuck with me more than anything else.

"Always be gracious," she says.

No matter what I’m feeling… No matter how angry I am, or how much of a right I have to be that angry, she always says the same thing. Always be gracious.

It took me a long time to figure out what she means by that, but I think I finally have… Always be gracious…

She means, even when someone or something is tearing you down, or making you angry, or deliberately trying to see how far it can push you, show back the kindest and best part of you. Show love to those who don’t know what love is, and that’s how you learn what it is yourself. The best way to figure out what life is about, is to share love even when we know we won’t get any back.

I don’t know. I just thought it was nice that three little words could mean so much. But then again, we have the words “I love you”.

What fascinates me about women, is how when we think of the situations of oppression we are in in today’s world, we automatically jump to the conclusion that this oppression must be the result of the actions of men.

In many cases, we are equally as responsible for putting ourselves in these situations as men are. The only time women will truly be free of oppression is when we decide not to hold ourselves back. When we decide to stop limiting ourselves with ideas of what others expect and demand of us, and when we stop limiting EACH OTHER with ideas of what a woman should and should not be, that’s when sexism will truly be dead.
A woman is whomever she desires to be. No man, or woman, or society should ever tell her differently. We all have equal responsibility in this.

But whether it’s men who are responsible, or women, or just misunderstanding, it’s so important that we begin to realize that the thought patterns of women play into the issues they face.

I just got in a Twitter argument with someone about Feminism. I’d Tweeted that I believe Feminism is necessary in part because so many women (myself included) still feel that they have to be in a relationship in order to be happy. They also feel, to an extent, that they are giving up their…

"So many women feel that they need a relationship to be happy."

This isn’t a sociological issue, it’s mostly a psychological one. And an equal inner dialogue for men too.

This literally has NOTHING to do with oppression or sexism…..

The fact that we live in a society where women believe they are required to live their lives under a man in order to feel “fulfilled” and “complete” is a VERY serious issue of oppression.
