P!nk talking about Stupid Girls [2/2]

Don’t play dumb, even if they want you to.

Props to her for pointing out problematic behavior without putting down the women in general.

I’ve seen people complaining that she’s just doing the ‘not like other girls trope’ and no, I don’t think so. Maybe on the surface it can be read that way, but it’s a stretch.

I remember they did an episode of Oprah with Pink about this song and the audience was literally blocked full of young women with whom Pink did a q&a.

I’ll never forget one young girl who stood up and said ‘but what if guys don’t like me if I don’t act dumb?’

You could *SEE* Pink holding back the ‘then fuck ‘em, they’re not worth it’. She ended up giving a more gentle answer that boiled down that, but the moment stuck with me.

Pink isn’t condemning girls for wanting to be feminine. She isn’t condemning girls for liking to get their hair done or anything we consider ‘traditionally feminine’.

She’s going after an industry that infantilizes young women and teaches them their worth is in their cup size.

And, yes, she is calling out the women who go along with and enable it.

And that’s important. It’s all bad enough the way society the treats us, but to go along with it and, worse, teach young girls that this is what owning your sexuality looks like, giving control of it to old white men in suits…

We might not find it comfortable to hear it, but damn someone has to say it.

I hate emotions that I don’t want to feel. I want to shut down my brain into a quiet abyss of nothing, yet the harder I try, the more I fail. I keep thinking ‘what if’ and even though I know what is right and what is best for me, I keep thinking of all the other possibilities as small of a chance they may be. A part of me is happy and wants to be happy and satisfied with all the amazing things going on, but the other part is still unfulfilled and searching for more and better…but what if this is as good as it gets? But those fleeting moments, those butterflies of excitement from the new and unknown, will those end? Can I still feel that? Or am I bound to where I am now? Life keeps moving on and changing, and although a week ago I was so sure of my steps moving forward, within such a small moment, my confidence has faltered and I have burning questions flying through my mind, one after the other. “Should I risk it? Is it worth it? Am I happy? Am I fooling myself to believe I’m happy?” I don’t know. Thoughts keep racing through my damn head and all I want is to be away, by that peaceful lake, away, without a worry in the world except for sun burns and mosquito bites and if the ice is melting in my drink, yet those relaxing moments made the following days such a sensation overload that now, alone at home, all I can do is think and think and think and as I come to realize I should happy with all the amazing things I have right now in life, I still feel like something is missing and I keep grasping for those little moments of excitement that passed so quickly in my mindless haze.

Where’s my off button?

[/rant] Sorry - the angsty teenager just came out but I feel much better. and I wrote this last night but I feel like putting it out there feels good even if it’s ranting to strangers on the internet about my meaningless mind vomit.

Everyone will grow. That is, all of the youngsters who will live on the next age.
