"أحياناً اللَّيْلُ يَسْتَيْقِظُ بِداخِلي
وَ ليسَ بِإمكاني عَمَلُ شَيء
.سِوى أَنْ أكُونَ قَمَراً
-
sometimes the night wakes in the
middle of me
and i can do nothing
but become moon."

night sleepless nights I become the moon

I’m sorry, I have a boyfriend…

If I want to decline attention from a man with a simple “I’m not interested. I have a boyfriend,” that’s my decision. If you decide to go with “I’m not interested because you’re fat and you smell like pizza rolls,” that’s your decision. And I fully support your decision. Amen, hallelujah, high five, and all that jazz.
HOWEVER… please don’t sit there and tell me (as I’ve read in too many op-ed pieces) that I’m perpetuating some sort of misogynistic agenda by doing so or that I’m only using it as an excuse because men are more likely to respect another man’s “territory”.
I choose to decline unwanted attention with “I have a boyfriend” because it’s true, and because at the end of the day men have feelings too. Why should I disregard said feelings if they’re being kind? I was shut down in my single life, and “Sorry, I have a girlfriend” was way easier to hear.
Of course, if someone is being rude and/or disrespectful in their advances, I’ll be the first person to tell them the direction in which they can fuck—Off. The direction is off.

I’m sorry, but I don’t believe every “advance” needs to be seen as a reason to jump on my feminist horse on high. And I expect others to respect my decisions as I respect theirs.

Edit: Actually, no. I’m not sorry.
