Look At This Awesome Thing: The Cotton Project

So this is one of the most beautiful and empowering things I've seen in a while.

It comes from an artist named Grace and her blog The Cotton Project. She made this awesome comic thing that describes just how I feel as a woman when I'm at peak strength and passion. I'd like to get is tattooed on my back.

Here's the first section, one of several:

[Image text: Let me make one thing clear: I don't owe you shit. I can't believe I ever felt bad for being female. I can't believe I let people like you take that power from me.]

I won't post the whole thing here because I want you to go check it out on Grace's blog. Go on. Click away.

My favorite line: "At night I walk home with violence in my chest." YES. This is exactly how I feel. How I have to feel, because walking alone at night is dangerous if you're a woman. I have to be alert, be ready, and be ready to commit violence in self defense. 

Grace should seriously make posters out of this because I would buy those so fast.
