He says ‘I don’t get it, why are you still a virgin at 24?’
He says ‘I don’t believe you, I’ve seen you walk, virgins don’t walk like that’
He says, ‘That ain’t natural, people are supposed to fuck.’
He asks ‘Why though? No offence though.’
I ask ‘When was your first time?’
He says ‘I was 12’
He says ‘I know what you’re thinking, that’s too young.’
I look at his knuckles, he has two good hands.
He says ‘She was older than me.’
I ask ‘How old?’
And he says ‘It’s better that the girl is older, that’s how I learnt all things I know’
He licks his lips.
I ask again ‘How old?’
He says ‘I could use one finger to make you sob’
I think of my brother in prison and I can’t remember his face.
I ask again ‘How old?’
He says ‘Boys become men in the laps of women, you know?’
I think of my mothers faced lined with her bad choices in men.
He says ‘If you were mine you wouldn’t get away with this shit, I’d eat you for hours, I’d gut you like fruit.’
I think of my cousins circumcision, how she feels like a mermaid, not human from the waist down.
He says ‘I’d look after you, you know?’
I laugh, I ask for the last time ‘How old?’
He says ‘34.’
He says ‘She was beautiful though and I know what you’re thinking but it’s not like that, I’m a man, I’m a man, I’m a man. No one could ever hurt me’."
Anonymous: do you think taylor was "appropriating black culture" idk i mean she wasn't the director ya know? i was just wondering what you thought bc i'm white so i feel like i don't have a right to defend her
this is literally the only message im going to answer about taylor because you people keep sending them and its really annoying. i am going to be 100% honest with you all: i do not care. i keep posting about ferguson because its important i post about mike brown because its important i am so sorry but i do not care about this. i understand theres uproar because there were black women cast for the twerkers but none for the ballerinas. yes she/whoever was in charge of casting couldve easily had a beautiful dark skinned ballerina thrown in there just like they had some white twerkers thrown in. this is very true. but i dont think shes appropriating anything. when i think of “appropriating twerkers” literally the first thing that comes to mind is miley’s we can’t stop video and honestly taylors video had black people throughout (instead of only for the part that required bootyshaking). there are black people cheerleading. a black ribbon dancer. black people playing instruments. black extras. black interpretive dancers. black hip-hop dancers. a black backup singer. black people are displaying their talents THROUGHOUT the video yet people are only focusing on the twerking?? btw there were only like 3 black women twerking out of 6??? the rest were other ethnicities? if there were ONLY white girls twerking you all would be complaining like “WOW WHY ARE THERE ONLY WHITE GIRLS TWERKING THIS IS A BLACK DANCE” but no you’ve found this to complain about what the hell oh my god please leave this alone and stop sending me message about it i love the song and i think you’re all overreacting this is literally so unimportant to me bye
