when i was a little girl i was really sad because all i wanted was thick black hair and i had mousey brown hair
now i have hennaed red hair and i like it a lot
I have mousey brown hair too and envied my brother’s flaming carrot locks with a passion.
Now I am glad I don’t sunburn like him.
The principle underlying all seasoning—how you get this effect, how you reach this goal of getting women to believe that our salvation depends on someone else’s behavior — is that you get someone to do everything in relation to someone else who they perceive as more powerful; you get them always to consult an image of someone else in their minds, to say to themselves — to say to ourselves as women, for instance—“Now, how will the men respond to that?” every time we make a decision, or “If we do this, what will they do?” Always to be relational, to consult the masters of our psyches every time — this is bondage.
