“I have to put out a post.”
I’ve been repeating these words to myself for a week now. I’ve been saying this to myself a lot this year and most times there’s a “BUT” after those words. There is a saying that calls for ignoring all the words said before “but” as we were reminded by Jon Snow in S07E01 of Game of Thrones.
I was excited in the opening act/scene of this season’s GoT when I saw my beloved Arya living up to “a girl has no name”. I smiled with pride when Lady Lyanna Mormont (I have loved that little lady from the first time I saw her on my screen) gave the ultimate speech 👇 that made me text my friend 👇

Sometime ago I commented on a blog post about my stance on feminism and I remember ending that comment with “I am not a feminist, I am all for human rights”. A couple of hours ago, Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche reminded me of why WE SHOULD ALL BE FEMINISTS. This stood out to me in all that I read and I guess it’s mainly because my comment of that blog post keeps “haunting” me, more than a year now.
excerpt from We Should All Be Feminists
In a world where I’ve seen feminism watered down to the role of a female, the role of a woman in marriage, I just want to remind us today who a feminist. Also, that I agree with Chimamanda that WE SHOULD ALL BE PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IN THE SOCIAL, POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC EQUALITY OF THE SEXES because that’s who a feminist is.

To end this, let it be known to us that Feminism is for everyone; Feminism is for all genders.
About putting out a post, thank you; Blessing shares for making me realize that – “a blog post could be just one quote and yes! A potent message is passed across to the great minds reading.”
