Being told to smile, being told to be grateful, being told to be quiet. It was about teaching me to be obedient. Being told what to wear, how to wear it, when to wear it. It was about teaching me that I didn’t just deserve respect, I had to earn it. Being told what size I should be to be desirable, but not to act on that desire, because that’s what sluts do. It was about making me internalize your gaze. Having the legal system tell me whether I can or can’t have an abortion and having society judge me for it. It’s not about morality, it’s about control. It’s always just been about control. Women who are wild and free scare the world because they have come to understand the power of MY body, MY choice.
