Walked five minutes from my house to get some snacks and roti. Was slightly scared, almost didn’t go. Why the fuck was I scared? The streets are mine too.
My vagina doesn’t negate my right over public spaces. I try to undo years of brainwashing but that tiny little voice is so hard to get rid of. But still, every small step is a victory.
Thank you dhaba walay sir who didn’t look at me weird or mock me. I hope more of you exist.
