to Starbucks & opened the door for a man. He was visibly uncomfy
& clumsily walked backwards behind me as I pulled back the door. He
couldn't get access to the door handle because -- well, because I had it
in my own hands. He sputtered a few garbled words as I said, "after
you." He uttered, "Uh, oh, okay; thank you." If a man or woman wants to
open the door for me; that's fine. If a man feels awkward or confused
when a woman opens a door for him, that tells me that we hug our gender
norms too tightly.
I believe story telling is an art form and blogging is a medium in which to share stories and ideas. Within this blog I hope to cover a spectrum of topics. From the serious to the silly. Here you will read my views and inquiries about subjects such as feminism, other various socio-political issues, psychology, spirituality, sexuality, and general interests such as film, art and music. You will also be exposed to my obsession with cupcakes, tea, books, Hello Kitty, and quirky day to day journeys. I enjoy learning from others as I am constantly attempting to introspect, grow and evolve. During this process I will be jotting down musings on this blog. Pull up a comfy chair and a spot of tea and join me!
