Two-Bit Musings.

Dear Society.

Dear Society:

I love you. Always remember that. We are in this together.

And as your friend, I need to tell you a few things. . .

(clears throat)

. . .

Dear Society:

Please stop assuming the rules don’t apply to you. Every single one of us has places to be.

Please stop spewing out bullshit news articles that haven’t been proofread. You’re embarrassing yourself. And me.

Please stop throwing money at problems that require nothing more than time, expertise, and compassion.

Please stop labeling our writing as Women’s Lit.

Please stop making fun of libraries and post offices. They keep this place sane.

Please stop demonizing people for their mistakes of the past. Accept their apologies and move the fuck on.

Please stop assuming we are the only species that deserves a healthy habitat.

Please stop saying literally when you mean figuratively. No, they shouldn’t just change the definition.

Please stop creating caricatures of entire groups of people, and then freak out when someone draws one of you.

Please stop acting like you were never young.

Please stop feeling sorry for yourself. You are not the only one who has experienced heartache.

Please stop excusing the institutions that oppress our bodies and minds.

And please. . . stop forgetting that everyday we are making history.

We. are. better. than. this.

All of my love,


. . .

  9. Very nice. Thank you for the shout out to libraries and the post office. How could we exist humanely without such places?

  10. This is figuratively my favourite blog post in forever. People who forget they were once young is a pet hate of mine too. No one is born middle aged. Dip your toes in the sea sometimes people!
