Some men who want to compliment random women on the street are genuinely good guys who just don’t understand why their comments might be unwelcome. Some men who want to compliment random women on the street are creepy predators. Most are somewhere in between, and guess what? I don’t know you, I don’t know your life, and I have no idea if you’re going to leave it at “Hey, you look good in that dress!” or follow it up with “But you’d look better without it! Har har! C’mon, where’re you going? I know you heard me! Fucking cunt, nobody wants your fat ass anyway, bitch.”
When you compliment a random woman who doesn’t know you, no matter how nice you are about it, there’s a good chance she’s going to freak out internally because for all she knows, you could be that latter type. And I get that it’s really unfair that women would just assume that about you. I get that it sucks that sometimes, expressing totally reasonable opinions like “hey you’re hot” will make women terrified of you or furious at you. That’s not fair.
But if you’re going to lay the blame for that somewhere, for fuck’s sake, don’t blame the woman. Blame all the guys who have called her a bitch and a cunt for ignoring their advances. Blame all the guys who may have harassed, abused, or assaulted her in the past. Blame all the people who may never do such a thing themselves, but who were quick to blame her and tell her to just get over it. Blame the fact that if she stops and talks to you and then something bad happens, people will blame her for stopping and talking to you.

“I couldn’t hold back a smile, I still wish I could have seen you having sex in the morning, your love was foreign to me. It made me think maybe human’s not such a bad thing to be. So I just lay there in protest, entirely fucked. It’s such a stubborn reminder one perfect night’s not enough”

DIY Tee Shirt and Beads Braided Tall Basket Tutorial from Corner Blog here. This basket is much bigger than it looks and was made my moms in conjunction with their kids as a school art project and then auctioned off at a school function. They asked for an old tee from each student and then purchased a yard of jersey. Love how it turned out - in this case looking homemade is a definite plus. First seen at Design Crush here.
If you think abortions ok, remember what Horton says.
Awkward. Dr. Seuss and his wife were really liberal and pro-choice. They’ve even threatened to sue pro-life organizations for using this quote the wrong way (the way you’re doing it actually). I guess you didn’t already know that Horton Hears a Who is about the American occupation of Japan post-WWII. He even dedicated it to his dear Japanese friend.
Mrs. Geisel (Mrs. Seuss) continued donating to Planned Parenthood and advocating for reproductive health and rights after her husband died.
“It was all shock, awe, conquer - it was about devastating the competition. Right before the first take I felt like I almost left my body - a sudden surge of nerves. Then, all of a sudden, it was like coasting downhill on an old Schwinn Cruiser, like I could do no wrong.” Robert Downey Jr (about his Iron Man screentest)
He literally stayed like this for five minutes. Oh, Weasley.
