When you grow up as a girl, the world tells you the things that you are supposed to be: emotional, loving, beautiful, wanted. And then when you are those things, the world tells you they are inferior: illogical, weak, vain, empty. The world teaches you that the way you exist in it is disgusting — you watch boys cringe backward in your dorm room when you talk about your period, blue water pretending to be blood in a maxi pad commercial. It is little things, and it is constant. In a food court in a mall, after you go to the gynecologist for the first time, you and your friend talk about how much it hurts, and over her shoulder you watch two boys your age turn to look at you and wrinkle their noses: the reality of your life is impolite to talk about. The world says that you don’t have a right to the space you occupy, any place with men in it is not yours, you and your body exist only as far as what men want to do with it. At fifteen, you find fifteen-year-old boys you have never met somehow believe you should bend your body to their will. At almost thirty, you find fifteen-year-old boys you have never met still somehow believe you should bend your body to their will. They are children. They are children. Stevie Nicks (via radiere)

Discussing her “scary” image today, Jones says: “When I perform on stage I become those male bullies, those dominators from my childhood. That’s probably why it’s so scary, because they scared me. I enjoy being feminine, but I like role swapping.”

She leans confidentially toward me. “It’s nice to have your boyfriend cook, don’t you think?” she asks. “And to put some heels on him once in a while, hmm?” She cocks an eyebrow at me. “You should say ‘let me see you walk in these and feel what I feel a little bit’. It’s important that the sexes understand each other. And actually if a guy has really nice legs, a beautiful muscle that can look really good, really interesting. Mmm…” When I ask Jones what she would do if she were a man for a week, she picks a fishbone delicately from between her teeth and tells me she’d run for President. And laughs.
