The Female Boxers of Afghanistan

Afghanistan’s female boxing team is fighting against the odds to compete at the 2016 Olympics. The Afghanistan National Olympic Committee boxing club has fewer than a dozen members and little money—but the women spar together and support one another in their bid to attain Olympic glory.

YES THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY. BECAUSE I WAS THE ONLY FEMALE ON MY BOXING TEAM IN SCHOOL. AND BEING A HIJABI AND BOXING WITH A WHOLE BUNCH OF MEN WAS REALLY DIFFICULT. THIS IS WHAT WE NEED. THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING.

Someday my pain, someday my pain
Will mark you
Harness your blame, harness your blame
And walk through

With the wild wolves around you
In the morning, I’ll call you
Send it farther on

Solace my game, solace my game
It stars you
Swing wide your crane, swing wide your crane
And run me through

And the story’s all over you
In the morning i’ll call you
Can’t you find a clue when your eyes are all painted Sinatra blue

What might have been lost -
Don’t bother me

At Stanford there was this Professor who was a total bitch and she taught British Literature, which was cool. Except she taught only her opinions of the books and it didn’t help me as a writer. I went to school to learn new things to improve my craft, not have someone else’s opinions carved onto my forehead.

So anyway, for our final project, she asked us to write a ten page paper on why the color symbolism in Othello was so significant. I did some research and it turned out that she did her entire graduate thesis on this very subject. I was mad. This wasn’t teaching, this was boosting her ego. SO I wrote a ten page essay on why color symbolism in Othello wasn’t significant, satirizing it to the point of no return, saying that her opinion was an opinion and shouldn’t be taken seriously.

SHe failed me, needless to say. So in retaliation, I responded by baking a batch of brownies laced with weed and laxatives and delivered them myself to the professor hours before her big graduation speech. I told her that it was a peace offering, my way of apologizing and asking if I could do anything to fix my grade.

She refused to fix my grade.

In the end, she shit herself on stage.

I didn’t regret it.

No mercy.

in this crazy fucked up world, i’m so glad we have this.

How did we get through high school without being taught Dr. King
spent two decades having panic attacks?
Avoided Windows, jumped at thunder

I think we are all part flight the fight
Part run for your life
Part ‘please please please like me’
Part can’t breathe
Part scared to say you’re scared
Part say it anyway

You panic button collector
You clock of beautiful ticks
You run out the door if you need to
You flock to the front row of your own class
You feather everything until you know you can always
Always shake like a leaf on my family tree and know you belong here

You belong here and everything you feel is okay
Everything you feel is okay.
