"A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle"

The author of this quote remains debatable. Some people believe it to come from Gloria Steinem, others believe Irina Dunn, or maybe it's author is anonymous. But regardless of it's origin, the message is clear. Feminism sometimes get a bad wrap and I do admit, man hating "feminists" do exist, but not all of us feel that way. Personally I believe feminism should be all inclusive and I am definitely an intersectional feminist. With that being said, this post is dedicated to all the strong independent women out there (and the people who support them). You can be independent and self sufficient weather you have a significant other in your life or not. For those of us who are in loving supportive relationships, that's wonderful! Love is a beautiful thing! And for those of us who are single, get it girl! Because at the end of the day the most important relationship you have is with yourself. Love and let love. Happy Valentine's day guys!

  2. happy valentine's day! and I agree with you - there are different types of feminists, but at the end of the day, the relationship you have with yourself is the most important! I'm learning to embrace that even more now <3 I'm so glad I saw you <33

  24. You look so cute in this outfit, and I love the message on your shirt. Feminists do get an inaccurate representation and it drives me nuts. It's really just people who believe men and women should have equal rights... which should be everyone really.
