my mom presses her fingertips to her eyelids,
as though helping them carry the weight
of always having to be patient.
“why was I given such difficult, such picky daughters?”
I don’t know how to tell her
that she is lucky to have daughters who care more about their happiness
than being wives.
daughters who care more about love
daughters who understand they are not life vests,
(not made to save any man)—
they are the OCEAN,
immense and deep and lovely,
worthy of drowning in.
we are girls who refuse to pale in comparison to any man.
we are girls who vow to never be the moon,
to never feed off another’s light.
we are stars,
“come shine with me.”
The amount of mental gymnastics and cognitive dissonance needed to make this post happen is actually quite amazing. There are people that actually believe this.
You do realize that the Gaza strip..is..Palestinian land…right? You do realize it wasn’t “donated”, it’s not a gift, it’s always been ours? You do realize that those settlers, SETTLERS, were there on Palestinian land against international law?
I can’t even be angry at this post. I am honestly baffled how a victim complex can develop to this point. You’re acting as if the settlers are the original inhabitants and the Palestinians are the foreign immigrants to the land that displaced them. Do you realize that for those settlers to have their settlements in the Gaza strip in the first place..they kinda..had to remove the Palestinians there, right?
Do you realize that Gaza still fits international law’s definition of a military occupation? Israelis didn’t leave Gaza alone, all control of Gaza is still maintained by the Israeli army. Borders, airspace, supplies, everything.
Then, you turn around and compare an occupied strip of land, that will not be fit for human life by 2020, a strip with the worlds highest population density, with two of the wealthiest most powerful nations in the world?
I’m sure you know that most Gazans are refugees in origin? They didn’t “donate” their lands to the Israelis, though. But hey, since when did that stop colonial invaders.
I’ve always known pro Israelis are deluded and ahistorical, but this post takes the cake. There is some seriously next level Orwellian propaganda at work here.
Gaza was “donated” to Palestinians, Palestinians displaced Israelis, Israel is the eternal victim, war is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength.
