Mar 16

I blame men
that tell I'm dirty
that my desires are shameful
and think their touch has the power to defile me
they tell me my wants taint my being
damage my estimated price as a woman
reduce me to a wrongly preconcieved notion of femininity

I was first called a slut by my mother
who was a called a slut by hers in turn
who was called a slut by hers
...

I still blame men
