And if your daughter came to you, crying with hunger, would you tell her no? Would you tell her she is too fat, she wants too much, she must shrink into society? No.
Then why would you tell yourself the exact same thing? You are somebody’s daughter.

When women scream you wonder what’s wrong with them. When men yell you get afraid about what they’re going to do.

There are certain phrases that I know I will get shit for, but that feels very right for me. I sing, for example, ‘he hit me and it felt like a kiss,’ a feeling I love. You know when you think it’s love, but it’s so passionate that it becomes aggressive. It is an attractive quality to me. In a world where everyone is bored, I like people with emotion.
