hey if you’re not a shitty white person you don’t have to say it.
if you’re not a shitty guy you don’t have to say it.

you were born
you were born fighting
to be alive.
you were born with no further
capabilities but to feel
and yet i’ve seen you now,
so closed off
so ready to turn your head

you were born with a ferocity
only replicated by fire

"did you study today?"
"how much water did you drink?"
"did you get enough sleep?"

What would have once sounded like a “far-fetched feminist fantasy” – women forming the majority of a parliament – is a reality in Rwanda.
In fact, women are making gains throughout Africa, but these achievements have been met with a loud silence from the western feminist movement.
