(UNDER)grievances

A haiku, a song, a piece of fluff, a lament, a harangue, a scrapbook, whatever you will, about being a feminist undergraduate at the University of Toronto.

Newsflash: sometimes bad things happen to bad people. And sometimes bad things happen to human people who are just doing what they think they need to do to provide for their children while making minimum wage as a hotel maid. The fact that the woman is less than perfect does not make her any less likely to have been a victim of rape, and the fact that she felt the need to lie about certain aspects of herself shows that she understands that in a rape culture such as this, one has to be the “perfect victim” in order to even have a ghost of a chance at getting justice.
