Story time I guess? So I had a friend that saw this on my dash and he immediately freaked out and was like, “I hate things like that, girls can make weapons out of anything.” Or something really stupid like that. The point is, he didn’t like these adorable selfdefense keychains. I didn’t say anything at the time, but now I’m thinking back to all those times I’ve been in a dark parking lot trying to find my car, holding my keys like a knife, and hoping that it’ll be enough if someone tries to take advantage of me.
I didn’t understand why he would think that these are so awful, like no one is going to use one on him he’s a decent guy, but then I realized he probably has never felt unsafe enough to think that these are a good idea.
Anyways. These keychains are brilliant, and super cute.
Um girl you have to stop this
I first learned about this hair-touching thing in college. File that under privilege, that I didn’t know this was a thing, that I couldn’t even conceive that this was a thing, and the first time I heard about it I thought I must have misheard it or misunderstood because I was just like, “but why? why would they do that? i don’t understand????” because the idea of glad-handing anybody was so outside my understanding of how you behave that the particular white supremacy bent of “oh I get to do this because I have curiosities and you’re here for my amusement” was just… why? why? why would you ever? why would you even have the impulse to grab at other people in the first place? that is beyond me
I don’t know what particular classroom in White Supremacy land I avoided so that I didn’t get indoctrinated into this particular racist aggression and hostility to consent. Not that I wasn’t indoctrinated into plenty others. Just this one still remains a mystery of “how did you end up so hateful, jesus christ, let me know your last name so I can avoid whoever raised you, too”
this never gets old
I met the creator of this a month ago and he said he got a lot of hate mail from dudebros who thought that he was a woman complaining about these problems.
no one can ever, ever tell me that I should feel bad or wrong for taking selfies and appreciating my appearance. I will not go back to hating my body and face so much that I couldn’t look at myself without wanting to tear my skin off. no one will ever have a valid reason for why I should feel ashamed of taking photos of myself. I will not put their feelings before my own. I will NOT give up the love I have for myself because it makes somebody uncomfortable or jealous.
a brony called me unattractive
because i have hair on my legs
Self absorbed Bitch.
i’m a bitch because i can recognize that i’m not ugly, that i can laugh at someone calling me unattractive for reasons as petty as hair on my legs which EVERYONE grows?
She is most definitely not a Bitch, but yes, self absorbed I’d say from the copious amounts of selfies she takes.
i want to create a tv show about a group of friends where they’re all queer except the one token cishet friend who’s only there to say stereotypical “straight” things for laughs like “macklemore got me into rap” and “my mom and i got into a fight because she wouldn’t buy me a fourth obey snapback”
Or we could just stop stereotyping people.
