What's My Name

Your awesome Tagline

Today I called a depression hotline
Because I was awake before the sun and
Nobody else was.
A woman on the other end answered.
Just before I opened my mouth
I thought about if anyone ever thought to
Ask them if they were alright.
So I did.
Over the phone I could almost hear her smile as she said
“I’m doing just fine.”

I’ve been conditioned to hold my breath
When I walk by cemeteries or
When ambulances pass by.
Sometimes it is not always beauty that robs your lungs.

In the 5th grade I accidentally broke a boy’s finger.
I feel guilty about it still.

I’ve been single for almost a decade.
When I was telling my friend about
Another botched attempt at getting close with a girl she said
“You’re too soft for a man. You’re too nice.
Girls want to hug boys like you, not kiss them.”

I can’t help that my arms tremble when I hold someone,
I don’t want to break something so precious.
I can’t help that I cry more out of love than I do sadness.

I am not a shell, I am not steel.
My skin is dark but it is not rough.
My body writes checks out to any homeless heart.
My lips bruise trying to talk people into sleep.
I am soft, I am tender.

“You’re Too Soft For A Man.” ” - Nishat Ahmed

Please read guys this is so important, this is Stephen who was diagnosed with   colorectal cancer when he was 15 years old, his condition is no longer curable and he has taken a turn for the worst.
His goal is to raise £1 million (that is $1.6 million US dollars) for the Teenage Cancer Trust before he dies. He is in a very vulnerable position right now, one of his lungs has collapsed, he is in hospital fighting as hard as he can, but it is thought the end for him is very close. He has currently raised £690,000. Can we all please try and get him to £1 million? What better way for him to leave this earth, knowing the difference he has made in his 19 years. Having his life taken away from him so soon is so awful to comprehend, but knowing he has raised such a substantial amount for a charity who has helped him throughout this whole ordeal, a charity that will forever remain close to my heart, and one that helps thousands of teenagers suffering from cancer across the UK and beyond. 
I don’t know how else to spread the word that post it on here and hope that some people will donate, please consider it, if you are unable to, please keep Stephen in your thoughts and pray for his family.

Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.

Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.

Before you think the girl in the middle is a strawman, let me tell you I used to be her, back in my misguided youth. I considered myself the standard to which other people should adhere. But that was stupid. It’s not up to me to tell people how to dress, and it’s much nicer to let everyone choose for themselves.

Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.
