Dragon of the air
Fireballs over fashion any day
Just a gem in a cavern of treasure :)
WtW noob trying to write poetry and stuff
Playing with cliches like putty
Labels & stereotypes have a special place—in the garbage can

Tomboy shouldn’t be a word

Girly. Girlish. Feminine.
Why do these words still exist?
Why are they used to describe 
Everything
dainty
pretty
and painfully materialistic  

If I despise fashion
makeup
and I tend to be loud
and watch high-fire competitions on TV
because baking never really appealed to me


Does that make me a tomboy

Oh, sure, society
Because I forgot
We’re still oppressed 
1800’s ideals

While you’re at it
Why don’t you get me one of those ridiculous hoopskirts
So I can walk through doors sideways
That would be very ladylike, 
wouldn’t it?
