Update one of the AA employees that drive the luggage carts,outside, circled around to where I’m sitting by the window and waived at me until I looked at him, he then proceeded to hand gesture for my number and if we could meet up to which I gestured pointing to my ring finger to tell him I was married ( I’m not married but just try and hand gesture that I have a bf). It was sweet kinda in a weird way. Ive certainly never been hit on that way before. Also should I be worried that the plane isn’t here yet if we are supposed to be boarding in a bit?
A Message to Women From a Man: You Are Not "Crazy"
"You’re so sensitive. You’re so emotional. You’re defensive. You’re overreacting. Calm down. Relax. Stop freaking out! You’re crazy! I was just joking, don’t you have a sense of humor? You’re so dramatic. Just get over it already!
If you’re a woman, it probably does.
Do you ever hear any of these comments from your spouse, partner, boss, friends, colleagues, or relatives after you have expressed frustration, sadness, or anger about something they have done or said?
When someone says these things to you, it’s not an example of inconsiderate behavior. When your spouse shows up half an hour late to dinner without calling — that’s inconsiderate behavior. A remark intended to shut you down like, “Calm down, you’re overreacting,” after you just addressed someone else’s bad behavior, is emotional manipulation, pure and simple.
And this is the sort of emotional manipulation that feeds an epidemic in our country, an epidemic that defines women as crazy, irrational, overly sensitive, unhinged. This epidemic helps fuel the idea that women need only the slightest provocation to unleash their (crazy) emotions. It’s patently false and unfair.”
“NEVER FORGET THAT YOU ARE A WOMAN, AND THE GREATEST POWERS YOU CAN EMPLOY AS A WITCH ARE TOTALLY DEPENDENT UPON YOUR OWN SELF-REALIZATION THAT IN BEING A WOMAN YOU ARE DIFFERENT FROM A MAN AND THAT VERY DIFFERENCE MUST BE EXPLOITED!”—
last night a friend of a friend told me about how she was sexually assaulted by a cab driver and when she reported it the police asked if she provoked it and then suggested she was a prostitute….lazy fucking victim blaming Chicago cops do your job to serve and protect the citizens THAT INCLUDES WOMEN!!!!
“During the manufacturing process, the tampons were contaminated with the bacterium Enterobacter sakazakii, which can cause UTIs, pelvic inflammatory disease, and potentially life-threatening vaginal infections.”

“Fashion is one of the very few forms of expression in which women have more freedom than men. And I don’t think it’s an accident that it’s typically seen as shallow, trivial, and vain. It is the height of irony that women are valued for our looks, encouraged to make ourselves beautiful and ornamental… and are then derided as shallow and vain for doing so. And it’s a subtle but definite form of sexism to take one of the few forms of expression where women have more freedom, and treat it as a form of expression that’s inherently superficial and trivial. Like it or not, fashion and style are primarily a women’s art form. And I think it gets treated as trivial because women get treated as trivial.”—
I hate days when i get down on myself, when i look in the mirror and see something so unremarkable it brings me to tears. I hate that on days like this I am susceptible to all the poisonous thoughts that float through the air.
