an_sceal: (Live nude women)
You weren't, they weren't, we weren't hurt because of our skirt, the alley, our body language, alcohol, smiling, dancing, singing, or because we were weak and say that last part twice because it needs saying, we were not weak; it was because someone hurt us.

From "so this word "weakness", it's not working for me"

You can know all the things you are supposed to do. You can know, and you can pretend that the knowing should have mattered, and you can spend years living with yourself before you realize that it really wasn't your fault that someone hurt you. That realization was one of the most profound moments of my adult life. I stopped letting myself believe that I should have known better, and I started to understand: No. HE should have known better.

"I used to feel so alone in the city. All those gazillions of people and then me, on the outside. Because how do you meet a new person? I was very stumped by this for many years. And then I realized, you just say, "Hi." They may ignore you. O you may marry them. And that possibility is worth that one word."

So Starbucks has thse zippy little quotes on the back of their cups lately. This was mine today, which was particularly apt as I started thinking more and more about Janska's culture. (I'm sure you are all very, very tired of seeing those names pop up, and I'm sorry.)

"My only regret about being gay is that I repressed it for so long. I surrendered my youth to the people I feared when I could have been out there loving someone. Don't make that mistake yourself. Life's too damn short."
