stop replacing mirrors with ‘you look fine’ signs i know i look fine that’s why i want to look in the mirror
This drives me mad. I used to work in a bookstore, and was talking to my coworker and he just yelled out “stop flirting with me!” at this ridiculous volume and it was humiliating because
1. I wasn’t
2. I got in trouble for acting unprofessional
3. He embarrassed me in front of a line of people
4. And he only stopped insisting that I was flirting when my boyfriend (who is now my husband) said, “dude, trust me, she’s not flirting with you” to him
That asshole respected my BOYFRIEND saying I wasn’t flirting more than he respected me saying it and I was the one who was talking! The whole scene got me in trouble at work. And the most ridiculous part is we were talking about a fucking book. In a bookstore.
One time, my ex boyfriend had a crush on some girl, and said that he thought he might have “a chance” with her.
When I asked him what made him think that, he said “Well, she talks to me.”
And this is why it is so difficult to be a girl and be friends with men who are attracted to women.
Can we also add that this is why a lot of women do the resting bitch face when out in public. Cause dudes swear a glance or a smile is flirting.
So yesterday something that perfectly illustrates this happened. I work at a fast food place and this guy comes in at 7am on a Sunday, still probably drunk from the night before, and when I smiled and said goodmorning he said “Did you just say that because you’re being paid to say that?”
I repressed my urge to sarcastically answer, and said “Nope, I just enjoy saying hi to everyone!” To which he responded, “Oh, so you weren’t flirting with me then.”
Dude, I’m not flirting with your gross 7am-on-a-Sunday-ass, trust me.
My defense mechanism when I’m uncomfortable at work is to smile, so I did that and said “Is there anything I can get you this morning?” to which he responded,
"There, you just smiled! What does that mean?"
At this point I was fed up, so I said,
"I smile at everyone sir, its just what I do. What can I get you, coffee, a bagel?"
And he said “I’m gonna be watching to see if you smile at everyone. I don’t like it when girls lie to me” and then ordered a coffee and a muffin like he hadn’t just said something at 11 on the “Is this guy a serial rapist” scale (where 0 is ‘no’ and 10 is ‘Yes, run away as fast as you can right now.”).
Then he sat there for another hour and a half, staring at me from his table. When he got up and left he came back to the counter, and said “You do smile at everyone. That’s fucked up.” and walked out.
I can’t even be innocuously polite and pleasant to people at my job (where customer service is the number one thing we are supposed to be focusing on) for fear of this shit happening. What happens if he had decided to wait until my shift was over?
New Rule: If she’s at work, SHE’S NOT FLIRTING WITH YOU.
Please read the petition, sign, and share as much as you can. There are breakthroughs in IC to be pursued, they just need funding.
My sister has had Interstitial Cystitis (IC) for almost a year now. It started innocuously at first and then got much much worse over the next few months. She started to miss classes, she couldn’t focus on schoolwork, she couldn’t sleep for nights on end. She tried altering her diet bit by bit and when nothing worked she just stopped eating in an effort to make the pain stop just so she could just rest for a little while. My parents and I had to convince her to start eating more food again because we were worried she’d just starve to death.
She’s been to many doctors and taken many meds and painkillers, but nothing really works.If she’s lucky some of the meds will make her feel a little better for a few days but it’s mostly random. She’s down for days to weeks and then okay for a little while now and then. We think she’s improving very very slowly now. But she never knows when it’s going to be worse or what will cause it. Something will just change and suddenly it’ll hurt too much to sleep, to sit, to leave the house at all and it can go on for a day or for a month with no way to tell what it’s going to be or when it’s going to end.
Interstitial Cystitis affects millions of men and women in the US and around the world. For some people it gets better. Why? Nobody really knows. And for some people it doesn’t. Without treatment, the constant pain turns living into simply surviving. It makes seemingly ordinary activities impossible, and can lead to depression and sometimes suicide.
I don’t want my sister’s or anyone else’s suffering to be as random and baseless as IC makes it. Imagine all your plans for your future eclipsed by a disease with no cause and no discernible end. Imagine what it must be like to live in unremitting pain day after day with no treatment or relief available. And imagine what it must be like to have a string of good, pain-free days, feel a single twinge, and not know if you’ll be able to sleep or stand for the next month. Imagine what people who have IC go through. I want them to find answers and I want them to find treatments so people can get their lives back. September is IC awareness month. Please read and sign the petition. Reblog, and do what you can to increase awareness. Thanks.
Life is so hard when you no longer have netflix and your laptop needs a new battery.
do not let anyone make you feel like shit for putting yourself first
you are the only person that is guaranteed to be with you throughout your whole life so you might as well have a loving relationship with yourself

How did I not notice that ‘bitch please’ face before?
I will answer injustice with justice.
On the character Loki (x)
I will never get over how adorably serious he is when he talks about poor Loki
