y’all can call that girl carrying her mattress around “performance art” and “activism” all you like I guess. that’s shallow and bourgeois and reductive imo. it’s more than that and it should be respected on a way deeper level. it’s the kind of wild don’t give a damn nonsensical shit being raped will make you do and get you locked up for. or kicked out of school. who knows, maybe they’ll do it to her. all victims should get this kind of sympathy and respect when we fucking do this kind of stuff because nobody hears us and nobody cares and there’s literally no way to express even a piece of what has been done to us outside of crazy shit like carrying a mattress w you wherever you go.
