And then, everything you see on the Internet you want to set in fire. Fuck your opinions, even if I agree with them!
This thing happened at work. It’s complicated, but it just means more work, more time, and no extra pay, and it absolutely killed my mood. I went from being in an alright head space to just strait depressed. Like locking up the breaks at 60. I’m doing ok avoiding a binge, worked through about 5 of my usual alternative behaviors, was able to eat a regular dinner, but its all I can think about right now. Just gonna grab a granola bar and get back to work where I’ll be able to avoid bingeing until I get home from work.
We have a new candidate for asshole of the year.
And how precious is it that this man decided that he gets to define something which overwhelmingly affects women more than men? It’s just adorable. As Bilmon said, "Leaving aside vicious sexism & rape denialism, it is amusing when RW white (& white collar) elites try to pander to their blue collar marks."
Patriarchy backfiring on men is not sexism against men.
Alright, here’s something funny. These boys in my hall went outside in their undies to take some photos in the snow. Funny, right? They’re trying to get attention and it’s hilarious. Us ladies choose to do the same, we are wearing more clothing, and are doing the exact same poses. We are wearing as much clothing as is acceptable at the pool or the beach, at the gym, etc.
There is a serious double standard here— us girls have gotten responses like:
"What’s the point of being half naked?"
"*ahem* sluts *ahem*"
"What’s wrong with you females?"
Or worse, what my mother said. Her initial shock was apparently because she thought I was in my underwear, but when I told her I was in a swimsuit, she was suddenly happy I was having fun in college.
The idea here is that we are doing the same thing. When arguing this point with one of my hallmates, he said “But men’s bodies aren’t built the same, you don’t see girls getting pumped up over a topless guy, but how many guys do you think are gonna get all crazy over a topless girl?” Seriously? Really? Women don’t need to dress in order to avoid a reaction from men. You’re mad because you can’t control yourself? Men can pose in their undies in the snow without an issue because women aren’t going to go wild over it? Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours.
The double standards are killin’ me.
"Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours." Is literally one of the best quotes I’ve ever heard. Thank you.
this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1
White people are still the ~standard so that’s not so revolutionary.
A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes
A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes
A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes
A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes
A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes
That’s some bullshit right there.

That last bit, about leveling up. dead.
Pre-preparing my meals is a big part of my success that I don’t practice. I work a crazy work schedule, easiest is what I need, and often that is fast food. So it’s Sunday night and I’ve made 5 sandwiches for breakfast this week.
Yes, these sandwiches are for breakfast b.c I need flip my calorie I take. More in my first meal, less in my later meals. Front load for energy so I’m less prone to OverEating/binge eating.
So these sandwiches are intended to satisfy two goals.
We’re also cooking up a huge batch of meat sauce and pasta for lunches and dinners this week.
