Badass Dominicano!!!! (Also check out his tee) 💜😍💜😍

My mistrust [of men] is not, as one might expect, primarily a result of the violent acts done on my body, nor the vicious humiliations done to my dignity. It is, instead, born of the multitude of mundane betrayals that mark my every relationship with a man—the casual rape joke, the use of a female slur, the careless demonization of the feminine in everyday conversation, the accusations of overreaction, the eye rolling and exasperated sighs in response to polite requests to please not use misogynist epithets in my presence.

This. This this this.

Also, this + legislative actions that curtail my human rights and demean my worth as a human being. 

But you know, no biggie right? Just get over it!

I met Junot Diaz! Praise the gods! 
I’ve been waiting for this since I read Oscar Wao for the first time in 2010

I didn’t have a great workshop experience. Not at all. In fact by the start of my second year I was like: get me the fuck out of here.

So what was the problem?

Oh just the standard problem of MFA programs.

That shit was too white.

Junot Diaz, in his New Yorker Piece “MFA vs. POC" (which is a play on the recent n+1 publication MFA vs. NYC)

I’m gonna see Junot Diaz today! Like I still can’t believe that I’m gonna see him…I’ve been waiting years for him to come to Southern California. What should i say to him?

:D
