I'm shannon, I'm 21 and I live in newcastle, australia. this blog is a muddled amalgamation of my interests in feminist politics, fashion, art and poetry. I'm really interested in drinking irresponsibly, prioritising online purchases before my food for the week and dramatizing how woeful I feel at any given moment. try not to fall in love with me

"One thing that can be very alienating about a misconception of feminism is that girls then think that to be feminists they have to live up to being perfectly consistent in their beliefs, never being insecure, never having doubts, having all the answers… and this is not true and actually recognizing all the contradictions I was feeling became easier once I realized that feminism was not a rulebook but a discussion, a conversation, a process."
