"T(ex)ting"
Lora Mathis & Kasey Reinbold
August 2014

It’s over.

All that remains in place of a relationship gone sour is a collection of hurt feelings and angry text messages.

Things you couldn’t have said in person. Things you probably shouldn’t have said from behind a keyboard. 

T(ex)ting is a series that explores how the termination of a relationship interrupts routine, and how technology’s capacity to convert the emotional to the tangible (in the form of archived text messages) can prolong the healing process that follows a break-up.

Don’t look up, my love, there’s no war here. The girl on the train works with the peace corps and hanging right next to her backpack is bright pink mace.

Close your eyes when you get home, carry your mother’s best knife with you into the shower. Hold it in your shaky palm. Wait for your family to get home, keep it where you can get it, have it pointed in front of you like the prow of a ship. Cleave the air, wait for the moment when out of the closet or under the bed a man will grab you and use your empty house as an invitation, as asking for it.

Lock your car. Check the backseat before getting in. Don’t sit too long in parking lots. Don’t break down on the side of the road. Don’t get in a vehicle with people you don’t know. Don’t stand up straight, don’t hold your head up high. Don’t cry where someone could see.

Have 911 pre-dialed. Carry a pocket knife the way your brother does. He plays with his because he is a boy scout and he might have to use it. Yours is a weight and you are terrified for the day you will have to use it. Don’t panic when men stand too close to you, don’t breathe too deep, don’t look them in the eye - but don’t look weak, don’t look vulnerable, don’t show that you’re scared, but be scared.

Don’t marry him if he’s mean to his mother, if he’s mean to dogs, if he’s mean to waiters. It’s your fault if he is cruel, you should have seen it coming. Don’t kiss him if you’re drunk and not looking to follow up. Don’t give him the wrong idea. Don’t love him, it’s clingy. Don’t spurn him, it’s heartbreaking.

Let him catcall you from the safety of his four-wheel drive, don’t flip him off. Think about the girls that have died on the edge of the road. Let him trail slowly behind you so that the crunch of his tires matches the grind of your teeth. Get inside whatever building you can find. Hope the car doesn’t loop back around and follow you later. Sooner or later, one of the cars is going to loop back around and follow you later.

Don’t call yourself a feminist, you will become sick of explaining that you don’t hate men. Don’t call yourself a feminist, it’s seen as an attack. Don’t call yourself a feminist, you will hear more slurs against your person than if you had said you wanted to kill the president. Don’t call yourself a feminist, it’s dangerous to want something for yourself. Don’t call yourself a feminist. Hold fast to the idea that girls of all shapes and sizes and colors and bodies deserve the same things as everyone else, fight for it quietly - but don’t call yourself a feminist.

Don’t be like other girls, whatever that means. Don’t be one of those plastic girls. Don’t be one of those gamer girls. Don’t be one of those band geeks. Don’t be one of those hipsters. Don’t be one of those fangirls. If you can, don’t be.

Don’t look up. Don’t breathe. Don’t think. Don’t worry, my love, there’s no war here. It’s in some far-off distant country.

I had a good night. We ended up in a place frequented by middle-aged polish people. They dance like me but more flamboyantly. This is not a good thing. Or maybe it is. I enjoyed.

I’m tired and I have to wake up early tomorrow. But we are on the bus for a long time so it is fine. We’re heading through the Czech Republic to Vienna. I am so excited.

I also made a new friend. I really am lucky right now. Being abroad was a good decision. Even if my body can barely take it, I am doing better than before. I have things to do and people to meet. I’m okay. Maybe better than okay.

2 days ago / 2 notes / personal,

I’m in Poland right now and I am enjoying this more than I thought I would. Honestly I didn’t think anything because I didn’t know much about Poland but it is great here. I highly recommend this place. Not to mention the relative cheapness of food and stuff.

I’m tired all the time because my body doesn’t take traveling well, but I’m surviving. Living even.

Q & A

I know this is ignorant so I'm sorry, but can you explain to me the negativity behind calling people g*psies? I didn't know it was a slur until recently and thought it was a lifestyle/culture. Can you explain why it's offensive and how to not offend?

shitrichcollegekidssay:

To understand I think you should read this actual account of antiziganism from a Romani-American, Maria Catherine Trefil. I can tell you for days why it’s offensive, but I feel it’s best to read the words from someone who actually faces this type of discrimination. 

[Warning: racial slurs below]

I see the sign at the entrance of the thrift store — “GYPSIE’S SPECIAL: 75% OFF EVERYTHING” — and, automatically, my blood is boiling, but I am silent. It’s not the first time that I’ve seen signs like it. From flat-out racism to the encouragement of well-meant, but nonetheless offensive, stereotypes I’ve already heard everything in reference to my people and, previously, there have been few instances, outside of college classrooms, where I felt safe enough to speak out against such things.

well he really should have worn more protective clothing if he didn’t want that to happensounds to me like he was asking for it

Are we really sure he was actually shot and decapitated? Idk, sounds like something he would’ve made up. Guys make false decapitation accusations all the time, you know. 

If he didn’t want to be decapitated, he shouldn’t have worn a shirt that showed off his neck

I mean, not all woman decapitate people. I’m not like that.

New York Times asserted that Michael Brown is “no angel.”

This is literally the most exciting thing that I’ve ever seen.

In case y’all don’t know, I’m going abroad for the next semester to France. Before the semester starts I have a seminar and I’m gonna be in Berlin, Vienna and a couple other places! I’m excited but also stressed for some reason. I’ve been stressed all week. Like yesterday I wasn’t done packing but somehow I managed to play 60℅ of a video game. And I went out for milkshakes. And then to dinner where I drank two badam milks. And we somehow stayed out until 11 and then I had to come home and start packing for my 6:50 am flight. So I slept like 3 hours maybe. But I finished packing and I even finished cleaning my room so yay good for me! Anyways yeah if I don’t post much it’s because my internet sucks and I have actual things to do. Bye bye USA!
