Male privilege is this typical Nice Guy™ ******** being lauded to the tune of over 275k notes at the time of this submission (and gaining more by the minute), with such shining examples as “someone give this guy a mother****in’ certificate,” “I wanna slap that girl and I want that guy,” and gifs of applause. She’s vilified by guys and girls alike as a heartless, manipulative ***** for not being interested in someone who clearly can’t take a hint (seriously, guy, you kept trying for YEARS even though she could not have made it more obvious she wasn’t into you and it’s somehow her fault that you’re so ****ing obtuse) and the guy gets all the props for finally putting her in her place, but if the situation were reversed you can bet the girl would still be slammed and laughed at for being desperate, annoying, and creepy and the guy would still get all the support for having to put up with some delusional female.

Male privilege is feeling entitled to the attention/affection of whatever girl you please with no regard to said girl’s feelings or desires and then having hundreds of thousands of other people validate that false entitlement when you don’t get what you supposedly deserve.

I've been waiting tables for two weeks.

There's a regular who is in there twice a day at the bar.

He keeps putting his arm around me and rubbing my back even though I pull away every time and aren't overly nice to him at all. (He also REEKS of cigars/cigarettes, so that doesn't help.)

I'm really annoyed and disgusted. He does this to all the girls.

Why on earth is it okay???????????

Have you said something? I've worked places where patrons were asked to leave if they behaved inappropriately with servers.

That man's a stalker. Pursuing someone who's made it clear they're not interested is creepy as hell.

How pathetic do you have to be to pine over someone for years when they've blatantly brushed you off several times?

You know, I had a coworker who would handle cases like this by leaning in real close (I know, I know, bear with me), and say in a sweet, low voice so only he can hear, "Hey love, I don't think it's such a great idea to touch my back... I have a little poison ivy going on." And, if he ever said something, she would deny, deny, deny... Usually, the perv would never touch her again.

Don't know if that's your style... I usually say really loud (with witnesses) that I'd appreciate it if he'd keep his hands to himself.

This long weekend has been brought to you by the letter C, for Cape Codder.

And the letter S, for Sea Breeze.

And the number 2.

Good idea!

It makes me very, very angry that men get away with this garbage. Sometimes I really hate the vulnerability that comes with being a woman.

My first name: Fantasy, adobo, and time. With a dash of Photoshop.

Wtf?!? I do love adobo... But photoshop? Does that mean I'm fake? I don't like this. Grr....

My full name: music, Folk, and soil. With a dash of Ramen.

Ok. I do like some folk music. I like soil. And I can only afford ramen to eat so this one works better...

My middle name: Instrumental, rice, and fury. With a dash of foreveralone.

So sad.

Curlminx is made of web comics, crepes, and time. With a dash of the West.

I am from the west. And I guess I gots nothing but time. Time to read web comics and eat crepes!

W_S, you need to keep up on them. I called and they didn't call me for three or four days. My mom finally kicked my butt into gear and told me: you are the one that wants the help. You need to go get it. If that means walking in there, you need to make it clear that you want help. So I waited two days and then called.

So, you need to go. You need to pursue. If we want better, we need to make it happen for us. Those around us don't get it. They may want to, but they don't. So let's get better because we are ready to be better!

And I think that working on the tasks that you can work on in terms of the car is a good thing. It seems to me like you have a clear idea that there are things within your ability/power and things outside of that. You can always start with what you are capable of. I need an oil change. While I can't afford one right now, I can buy a couple of quarts and make sure I don't kill my engine before the middle of the month and my first paycheck. I can buy the $10 ac filter and change it myself too. Not much, but it is something. And it makes me feel good to do something. I feel good while keeping busy.

My mom also convinced me to start a to-do list. Of easy things, so that I can cross stuff off it and get a bit of a boost at accomplishing stuff. And it works. A bit.

And I love where your mind went with all of it.
