Lost and Found

I feel like I’ve kind of lost myself and I think the @Khaleejigirl followers may have noticed. I haven’t written for a very very long time.

Misogyny is the oldest prejudice in the world, it’s not just feelings of hate or superiority over women, but it’s also the disdain or disrespect of women.
