Sorry this took me so long! I started writing this a few weeks ago but then stopped to write my PiP story. This is a little bit different than the prompt, but the main idea is still absolutely there. It got away from me a little too, so it’s technically about the size of 30 drabbles if you go by the 100 words = a drabble belief lol.
This “drabble” is NSWF.
Katniss wasn’t one for birthday parties. In fact, she’d spent most of her life worming her way out of having them at all. She didn’t like the attention, she didn’t like making anyone feel obligated to buy her a present, and a room full of people on a day where all eyes would be on her was bound to wear her down fast.
So why had she let Johanna and Madge talk her into throwing a twenty-first birthday celebration at their apartment?
They were persuasive, that’s why. While Madge whined in that high-pitched squeal that always weaseled an extra fifty bucks from her father during their weekly phone call, Johanna prattled on about Katniss grabbing her twenty-first birthday by the balls and squeezing. After that, throwing a birthday party didn’t seem like such a big deal if it’d just shut them up.
But now, in the stuffy and crowded apartment that already reeked of stale beer and cheap deodorant, Katniss was starting to second-guess her choice to throw a party. The once small guest list had somehow multiplied like a fungus. She didn’t even recognize half of the people there. And where had Madge and Johanna gone? She tried to stay close to them, and she’d been successful most of the night up until now.

- be the media’s idea of perfection

- have a vagina
This is very true, but it’s important to remember that if a woman is feminine, graceful, shaves, diets, wears make up, or does any of these things in the list, it doesn’t make her a slave to patriarchy or any less of a feminist than you.
She doesn’t know Peeta Mellark – or, well, she knows of him, but just in the vague sense that he’s the guy that her friends want to set her up with – before Delly drags her out for her birthday, and they meet a bunch of people that Katniss doesn’t really know, and for good reason. Cato is there, and he’s the biggest asshat in the history of the world.
As evidenced by the conversation that he’s having when she shows up. A blond guy with curly hair and glasses is standing in front of Cato, arms crossed, eyebrows raised. Like he’s clearly not going to be convinced by whatever he has to say. She hesitates before she breaks fully into the cluster of twenty-somethings that Johanna invited tonight, because she sort of wants to see where this is going.
“I just mean that calling it feminism is kind of sexist, isn’t it? Men have problems, too, and you can’t just decide that you wanna make women all-powerful or whatever, ‘cause that’s never gonna work.”
“What should we call it, then?” the blond challenges.
“I don’t know. I saw, like, egalitarian. Or humanist.”
The feminist rolls his eyes, and Katniss sort of smiles at the thought of Cato being put in his place. “Those aren’t real things, man. You’re not gonna get anyone anywhere by trying to make your own thing when there’s an existing group doing a perfectly fine job of addressing most of the problems men face.”

Peeta would have nothing to come home to anyway. Except me…
