Stop telling me I’m drunk so you think you have an excuse to touch me. I don’t need you holding my hand while I get a glass of water. I don’t need you to help me sit back down. I don’t need you touching my shoulders to “help” me sit up straight. I especially don’t need you caressing my head while I dozed off.

To My Fellow Women

You are a woman—big, small, silly, serious, passionate, shy, stubborn, sassy, loving, broken, flawed, confident, lonely, gentle, strong. You are a mother, a sister, a friend, a daughter, a lover, an ex, a child. You are wonderful.
