I’ve noticed an odd backlash towards one of my tumblr drawings. There are a bunch of really angry comments posted in the reblogs. Between you and me, it exhausts me to no end when I see how many people still misconstrue feminist ideas and are so ignorantly vocal about it.
Then again, it’s kind of amazing to see how many more people actually get it.
My ambivalent drawing request: I sometimes think I want a relationship but then I’d be annoyed that I didn’t have enough alone time… Boyfriends can be like having a 2nd or 3rd job! Whats a girl to do? Do I make more effort to seek out a partner & find my true love or **shrug** just face it - my dog’s pretty good company… What else do I need?
Ambivalently Yours: I’ve spent many hours worrying about love getting in the way of life. There is a fine line between being committed to and being consumed by someone else. I’ve definitely been in both of these scenarios.
"intimate relationship can provide a sanctuary from the world of facades, a sacred space where we can be ourselves, as we are…" -John Welwood
Maybe we just have to make time.
