I’m feeling in the mood to rant today so I think I’ll share something else that has been bothering me lately. It’s been said a thousand times, that men feel entitled to women’s bodies but it’s only recently that I’ve begun to recognise the times it’s happened to me.
I’ve always been chubby, which is something I’m quite happy to be. When I was pregnant I gained a lot of weight and became ‘fat’. Personally I would have said that how much fat a person has is nobody’s business but theirs. Men seem to feel differently. Random strangers would give me disgusted looks, and one guy even came up to me, falsely complimented my appearance and then laughed in my face. Because my looks are such a great joke right?
So I decided to lose some weight, and I did. But now the attention I receive from men is even more uncomfortable and at times scary. A guy in his car curb crawled along next to me trying to get my phone number, which I refused to give and luckily got to run inside my dad’s house before I had to deal with him further. And the men who called me a bitch today.
So it seems like I have to choose between being openly reviled or menanced. Fucking excellent job guys, way to not treat us like human beings.
So I’ve only been awake for an hour and already I’ve felt like a bad feminist and been terrorized. I was walking to work this morning and two men who appeared to be doing the same (one on a bicycle) decided to start shouting “bitch” at me for the crime of…walking while being a woman I’m assuming. And I really wanted to turn around and cuss them out, like, who the Fuck do they think they are? But I didn’t because it was 7 in the morning, there were two of them and there was no one else around. And I really doubt I could outrun someone on a bicycle.
Dear snow, I think you are lost. It’s March now, and we are not Canada or Scotland.
DAVID TENNANT IS A FUCKING BABE
I nearly died when I met him and he said my name was pretty. Ok, so I was 16 but I’d probably still melt into an awkward puddle at 23 :/
That new underwear looks nice.
It'd be a shame if something...
...happened to it.
Im a guy and i would have to have good friends discourage me from wearing this.
Gosh I need this. If this doesn’t get me laid nothing will
Fuck. I hate falling in love first.
