Remembering this day 13 years ago. I was in high school & I watched the second plane crash into the World Trade Center buildings on the tv in our lunch room. At 14, I couldn’t process what was happening, but my mom came and took me out of school & I knew our country had been changed.

13 years later, I’ve called NYC my home for 5 years & work next to a an area that is threatened by terrorism daily. But we go on & we won’t be afraid, because we are New Yorkers & we are strong.

"A toaster is still a toaster regardless of whether or not you choose to make toast with it. It’s still designed for the expressed purpose of toasting bread; and it still communicates that fact even while sitting unused on your kitchen counter. Likewise, a sex object is still a sex object regardless of whether or not you personally choose to use and abuse her. And that fact, in and of itself, still communicates extremely regressive ideas about women."
