every girl longs to be a rebel







(drawing, before it became a screen print)

Boys can hit and cuss and make complete fools of themselves, just to fill an expectation.
Girls seldom have chances to be rebels, but I think we all slightly long for it.
I thought I was dangerous when I was little just for jumping off high places or lighting the smallest of fires. Is that what you did, also?

Put so well. I grew up with an older brother and always thought i just wanted to be like him, but I realized in college that it was more about wanting to be rebellious, wanting to play with the boys because the boys don't have to worry about staying pretty, clean, and nice.

Yes! Lovely print. Boys have it easy.

What a darling illustration! And I can certainly support girls being rebels, in fact I wholeheartedly approve x

Lovely! Screen print for a shirt?
I used to feel pretty tough for jumping off of high things too, I also used to eat fire ants in front of my friends but that might be more weird than rebellious.

Yes, me too. I always longed to be a rebel, into my teen years and beyond. I still do. Secretly.

I would love to escape that dainty, expected image now and then.

Your photographs are something.

No boys in my family, so my sister and I had to cause all the commotion. That dress is dreamy, no boy could pull it off as well.

I thought burning incense was the most rebellious thing possible when I was younger. Oh, how wrong I was.

Clementina said...

umm yes, I think that every girl it's a little rebel in her own way..

Yes definitely and I still do these things (light fires, jump off high things, acta fool perhaps, occasionally) to enjoy that sentiment of doing something that i'm fully capable of doing and, really, whos gunna stop me anyway? Being kind and genuine is what I think really matters in life, so you can be a good girl (or fella) and still not follow the rules. Your drawing/screen print is divine!

Don't forget, anarchist can be sweet girls who get things done :)
