By the time we are women, fear is as familiar to us as air. It is our element. We live in it, we inhale it, we exhale it, and most of the time we do not even notice it. Instead of “I am afraid,” we say, “I don’t want to,” or “I don’t know how,” or “I can’t.”
 Andrea Dworkin quotesImogen’s first day at school they had a funeral for all of their ‘I can’t’s’.

They wrote “I can’t” on a piece of paper and their teacher buried them.

I love that.
