Man, I sleep like crap thanks to this stupid ankle. Honestly, it's probably as much the giant bulky air cast as it is the actual injury.

So. Tired.

Lol that picture has lightened my heavy heart. Thank you, I almost fell over walking.

There's something extra wrong with my brain. I probably failed this exam (you can tutor me now ss). I studied. I honesty did but for some reason I blanked and then my brain had the nerve to be triffling because all I could hear was everyone sniffling and coughing. It was all. I. Could. HEAR. And someone would do it every second. EVERYSECOND. I wanted to cry it was so annoying. I couldn't hear myself think at.....why is this ************* staring at me in the library. I will stare back and mean mug you. Find someone else to stare at before my eyes turn into laser beams please.

Ughhhhhhhhhh

He's still staring. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH he ugly of course. If you're gonna stare at least be not ugly.

OMG, all this beautiful truth about liberal feminism:

actually, no... a bunch of post-liberal-feminist women in Toronto did in reaction to a very specific incident involving a representative of the police force in that city.

"liberal feminism believes the concept of making a choice is so subversive"

oh PUH-LEEZE...

TRUE liberal feminism, as i learned it in the 1970s, is about respecting the choices women make for themselves, no matter what that choice is. it is NOT about forcing any view of "feminism" on women!

there are still WAY more important things to worry about than whether or not my wearing lipstick and mascara means i'm buying into some patriarchy - wage parity, sexual freedom (and that includes wanting to reclaim the term "slut" or rejecting it as you see fit), and education for women and girls around the world - just for starters!

Originally Posted by rouquinne

But this whole concept of "respecting the choices women make for themselves" assumes that women can make, and are making, free choices on the major issues that affect them. This is a LUXURY that white, middle-class, western women have and others don't. You guys can agonize about whether to have kids, whether to get married, whether to take his name, whether to be a stay-at-home parent, whether to wear a white wedding dress, what to wear to work and whether it's "slutty", whether to wear makeup etc. All the other women in the world have it forced on them what to wear, who and when to marry, to have kid after kid.... or they nominally make those choices but are burdened with a disproportionate share of the household responsibilities, or they technically have those choices but in reality they are just illusions. And even white middle class women are subject to domestic and sexual violence that they don't choose, which disproportionately affects disenfranchised communities of women.

Wage parity and education play into all of that because even here in the west, lower wages for women dictate womens' life and family choices and womens' lack of education also affect those things. So they are not separate issues.

The "slut walk" concept is actually "forcing" things on women because it's taking certain dress/behaviours and labelling it as "slutty" and then calling this clever/ironic/subversive or what have you. But it's not actually calling into question the fact that womens' flesh and how it is displayed is policed far more than necessary and that this is a pathology in our society. It's saying "I have the right to be slutty if I want" - so now anyone who wears a skirt above the knees or tight pants can been labelled as "doing a slut walk" and "being slutty." What if I just happen to like that length of skirt and don't think other peoples' view of my legs is of any serious concern? How dare they try to call me a "slut" or imply that there is anything sexual about my "choice?" As a Black, Latina woman, there are some who think I am a "slut" just for existing - why would I want to embrace that term any more than I'd call myself a n------r?

Liberal feminism is like "post-racial thinking" or "colour blindness" - you can only get there if you ignore a lot of peoples' realities and focus only on the privileged few.

All other women don't have these things forced on them. This is VERY real in some cultures, but there are many cultures that this isn't the case.

I do agree with you that this is an issue and needs to be addressed, I just don't want to get race and culture mixed up.

I just used the vacuum to suck up the largest centipede I've ever seen. Ugh. Granted, it's only probably an inch or so larger than any other centipede I've seen. But it seemed huge.

Evil, jumping, effers!

Skinks used come in a business I formerly worked at. People would scream, and run. I couldn't help but laugh. They are completely harmless, and beautiful

murrrr, maybe you have misophonia.

TNB, you should see how FAST those things move. All those legs mean they skedaddle like nothing I've ever seen. Imagine getting into the shower and seeing one; there is something even worse about seeing one when you're naked.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
All right.

Someone's got to say it, and it might as well be me, although I know I'll regret it.

I think the real issue about rou responding to Saria as she did (and rou, if I'm in error, please let me know) is that Saria's posts are often negative and critical of others. That's her choice. However, I wonder if the real issue isn't the fact that she (Saria) is unhappy in various ways, and criticizing others is a way of displacing that.

I personally wish the best for Saria, who is beautiful and talented and often very, very thoughtful. I have found, in my own life, however, that it's easier to dislike or criticize others when it was I who needed to make a change.

Many people here won't believe it, but no harm or unkind judgement is meant by this post.

Peace.

I don't think Saria is unhappy.

I think she just made a very valid criticism on the current feminist movement. In that one of it's many shortcomings is it does not acknowledge of issues of WOC.

One of the reasons I have a hard time identifying with feminism--lack of intersectionality. (except when males are around, then I'm a feminist and misandrist).

The wearing lipstick and heels was just an example of how the feminist movement limits what liberation and empowerment mean. If that makes any sense. Idk.

It's not that complicated.
