I hate feeling like my voice isn’t heard. I hate the social training that teaches me to shut my mouth and steam and not punch entitled dicks in the mouth when they’re being sexist. I hate that if I did I’d be seen as a crazy bitch instead of totally justified because I’m being disrespected so badly. I hate being told that I can “stop being so feminist” because I’ve “made my point” when I do. I’m not “being feminist” fucktard I’m speaking up for myself.
I hate feeling like my friends are going through shit in their lives and I can’t do anything to change their positions. I hate feeling like I can’t convince them to treat themselves better. I hate being far away from them and yet hate that sometimes it’s totally necessary because sometimes their sadness just wears my own soul down.
I hate that I have so far to go in making myself physically strong. I hate that the exercising I’ve started doing all of a sudden feels like work now instead of fun and empowering like it was a month ago. I hate feeling unsure on how far I could push myself if I had to. I hate that I have such a deficit to make up before I see any real progress.
I drew a comic for my boyfriend cuz he’s a sweetie and I love him.
This reminds me of the way my girlfriend calls me “cuddly” and it makes me actually feel happy about being fat.
I mean I really don’t feel ashamed of my body but I sometimes feel frustrated with it anyway. I wish I was more athletic rather than more thin, because I want to be stronger and more in shape and sometimes I get frustrated at how arduous the process of becoming a BAMF is. But when she tells me I am cuddly it makes me okay with the process taking a little longer.
Pull rope to call nurse.: Why im against a woman doctor -
Im a girl myself so im not being sexist but it would be too complicated for the doctor to have a total sex change im sure even on Galifrey you’re born ethier a girl or a boy and thats how you stay otherwise how would they reproduce cos im pretty sure the only that changes in…
Also Time Lord’s are woven in the Loom from other Time Lords’ DNA so I don’t think having sex is a problem.
This man won’t stop starting at me no matter where I move in the train. Even when I take this obvious photo he won’t stop. Sadly this isn’t the first, second or third time this has happened to me and it won’t be the last. As a girl I have dealt with this since I’ve been in middle school and it is sickening.
There is nothing I can do but put this mans face on the internet. I hate to ask this sort of thing but if you could please reblog I would greatly appreciate it.
Wow, what a grade-a piece of shit! >:C Is this a daily thing with this particular individual? Because there is absolutely something you can do about it. If he continues to be a bother, call the non-emergency police number when you get off the train and report his ass. The operators are usually very nice about situations like this; just tell them you’ve seen a suspicious individual on the train, describe him and what he was doing (ooh, especially if it’s chronic, they’ll want to know about that), and request heavier patrols along that route. If the asshole follows you, request emergency response and ask them to continue to remain on the line until an officer arrives. Don’t be afraid to use that non-emergency line liberally; it’s saved my ass more than a couple times.
Unfortunately, this kind of shit won’t stop unless you do something about it. Hopefully one day no one will have to worry about people like this piece of shit. Until then, good luck, and stay safe.
311 is the non-emergency number in NYC, for future reference. A lot of big cities also use 311 as the non-emergency police code, but sometimes in smaller towns, you just need to call your local police department. I think having that on hand in your phone will help you feel safer. You can usually google it.
And since it’s non-emergency, you don’t ever have to feel guilty about using it. :)
No matter where I move this guy won’t stop starting at me. Fucking gross.
Flip him off.
No seriously. If you’re in a safe place around other people and he won’t stop staring, flip him off. He’s being rude and creepy. And then go tell an authority figure.
I’ve flipped men of countless times and it does absolutely nothing. Sometimes they even smile. I just moved to the next car over.
Well no, but that’s also why you tell an authority figure.
Flipping them off accomplishes two things: 1) it lets them know you see them, that you’ve looked at them and can identify them, and 2) it lets them know that you won’t keep quiet and will cause them a problem if they try anything. Speaking up and being like “Do you have some sort of problem? Stop staring at me.” also works, as well as alerting others around you that there’s a guy being hella sketchy.
It can be dangerous in a place where there aren’t other people around to help you if the situation turns badly, but when you’re in public, it’s the most discouraging option. Heck, if you feel unsafe doing so in public then yeah, just moving to another car or just walking by also works.
BUT, you also can report them. Even if they DO stop bothering you, report them. If there is some sort of formal complaint lodged against them, it makes it more noticeable if someone else lodges a complaint later, maybe someone who ended up worse than you.
I just really haven’t found in my personal experience that “just ignoring them” works. This sort of thing is already treated like it doesn’t happen, so how does us doing the same thing and treating it like it’s not happening help it stop?
Still— the most important thing is that you get safe so I’m glad that that was your first priority, and that you did move and also took his picture. Keep staying safe.
im not sure that it matters to anybody, but my thoughts are with the LGBT community in Russia. Stay strong guys. I’m so fucking sorry.
