One GirlOne girl; that is what it takes to say “no” in a world of men thinking they know what is best for the girl, never asking. One girl; that is what it takes to run away, in a direction she does not know, except it is not where she came from, and she fears going back. One girl; is a dangerous voice to the men thinking what is best to keep her in a vulnerable place. All she has to do is speak, have someone to listen, and all privilege falls apart. One girl could always be two girls. Two girls could always be four. Then who knows? Everything would be changed and some men do not want that. To some men, girls are cattle or less. It takes more than one man to change, but it takes one girl to say “no.”

God Is Not Amused With What You Are Doing In Her NameWhat would you do if God came down and said, you have it all wrong? What if God was really a woman? What would you do if she brought scales, measured your worth, found your soul was empty? What would you do if she turned you into a woman, suffering? What if she was Circe and turned you into swine? What if you found your sex mutilated? What would it take to make you see you had it all wrong? What if the roles were reversed? It takes little imagination to control so many; it takes more imagination to escape.
