- Friend: What costumes are you bringing to DragonCon?
- Me: *sweats nervously*
It sucks when someone you have feelings for doesn’t share those feelings; it happens to women all the time, too. We hear “I just want to be friends” and “you’re like one of the guys” and “you’re like a sister to me” just as often. But you’ll never hear a woman complain that guys just don’t appreciate a Nice Girl because we’re taught it’s our own fucking fault when we’re rejected—we aren’t pretty enough or thin enough or sexy enough, we weren’t sexual enough or were too sexual, we put out too much or too little or too soon or not soon enough, we didn’t wear our hair the right way or our skirt the right length, we’re “too tomboyish” or “too butch” or “too feminine”, or we’re “not their type”, or we’re otherwise not good enough in various ways to entice the man to grace us with his affection.
But when we’re not interested in someone, we’re vilified. We’re the bitch that lead them on, the bitch who let them buy us dinner but didn’t want to date them, the bitch who doesn’t appreciate a nice guy, the bitch they were nice to and then got nothing in return from.
And, frankly, fuck those people. Showing interest in me, being friendly with me, getting close to me, or eating a meal with me (even if they paid for it) doesn’t obligate me to open my heart or my legs. And anyone who doesn’t appreciate my friendship sure as hell doesn’t deserve my love or my pussy.—
READ IT. READ IT ALL.
whereas a brown guy with literally a TRACE of bedbug spray on his clothes wasn’t allowed to board a plane, the authorities were notified immediately, he was interrogated, harassed, questioned about his religious beliefs, was treated like a piece of shit, forced to dish out $700 for a new ticket, had his apartment checked, and a bunch of other shit all for a trace of bedbug spray…and if you think this is ridiculous, it gets even worse
when the police actually got to murphy, his slap on the wrist was a one year probation and a $100 fine
LET ME CLARIFY.
HE HAD A BOMB. A LEGITIMATE THREAT TO SAFETY FOR OTHER PASSENGERS. THEY STILL LET HIM ON BOARD AND THEY ASKED HIM IF HE WANTED TO TAKE THE BOMB WITH HIM LIKE FOR FUCKING REAL…LETS PLEASE CLOSE OUR EYES AND IMAGINE IF A BROWN GUY NAMED MOHAMMED HIS AGE WAS CARRYING TWEEZERS ON BOARD. HOME BOY WOULD BE ON A NO FLY LIST SO LONG IT’D BE 20 YEARS BEFORE HE COULD EVER STEP ON A PLANE AGAIN LIKE YOU KNOW IM RIGHT
