I never really wanted this chair. I guess some part of me knew it would happen, but… I aways dreaded the weight of it. The responsibility. The truth is I can barely make the right choices for myself. I’ve been trying to take this club in a direction I thought made sense, to move us away from the outlaw shit. That hasn’t worked. I think some part of me was trying to buy back all the bad shit I’ve done. The people I’ve hurt. That’s a false pardon. It’s dangerous, and it’s selfish. JT did the same thing, and those choices took away everything from my old man. His family and his patch. I already lost the woman I love. I’m not gonna lose my club.
Lately, feminists like Annie Lennox, bell hooks and Emma Watson have taken issue with Beyoncé’s sexual openness. While trying to discredit Beyoncé as a feminist, they seem to have forgotten one of the most important parts of Chimamanda’s speech in ***Flawless."What does a lady dress like, exactly? And who decided what a lady looks like? What bearing should one’s clothing have on one’s identification as a feminist? This is exactly the kind of misogynist policing we’ve fought tooth and claw against for decades, and to level this line of “reasoning” at Beyoncé is not only antifeminist, it is despicable." (x)
@glassofwhiskey: So, I saw these beauty yesterday while I was walking around the Sony lot. My good god I have missed her. Such good times we had together. The door was locked and I felt really sad that I didn’t have the key.
