Worker Woes

The shit we put up with.

Have you ever noticed that humans have made it so difficult and complicated to “survive” in this world? It’s a vicious cycle. You go to school, and try really hard, so that you can get into a good college, and then you try really hard at college to get a good job, and then you try really hard at your job, so you can make money. And then your kids do the same thing. And everyone just keeps on doing this and no one even stops to think WHY they’re doing it anymore. Everyone just does it because it’s what you’re supposed to do. And like, before, when the human race had just started, the goal was to just SURVIVE. People just lived. I mean, that’s what really matters, right? Survival. Because after you die, it doesn’t matter what college you went to.

I just got seriously depressed. Oh well, if it means I can take care of my parents after all their sacrifices, so be it.

F-ing Creepers!

 So this happened today:

Before I launch into an epic rant of massive proportions, I would like to acknowledge the good parts of today. 1. Had a fun time with a friend, and played Scrabble! Yay! 2. I understood more math, even though I had a headache that pounded out. 3. Met some nice people, on my walk. Okay, now for my rant. I went for a walk with Sandy today, dirt trail behind the apartments, hey no big deal, it’s my usual haunt, when I don’t feel like going the Lowe’s Loop. Some dude passes me on a bike, says hello, I automatically respond, since it’s basically been ingrained in me since a child to be polite. Here’s where it get’s good: The dude came back on his freaking bike, and said,  ”this will sound weird.” (you can bet your ass, I was already wary, why the hell come back, and want to ask me questions?) He goes on, “what kind of attention do women want, how do I best acknowledge them as a women?” I tell him women want to be left alone and not accosted by strangers, (fascinating how that flew over his head, or he’s a persistent creeper.) He keeps trying to ask me, but oh my wonderful, psychotic dog (who is usually unruly and deranged on our walks, and a massive chicken when my dad tries to act like a burglar to “test” her protectiveness) gets in front of me and starts growling, reeaallllllly loud. The creepy dude says, “I was just asking.” I respond, “I’m going to keep going on my way, leave me alone.” Turn around and leave, and take a circuitous trail back to my house, (sure as hell wasn’t going to keep on the same path as the creepy dude on a bike.) I should mention I also had in my hand, (and fully in position to use immediately) my pepper spray (my dad had gotten it for me for this exact reason.) Now, what pisses me off is that, as a woman, this will be the rest of my life. It fucking sucks that I can’t go anywhere by myself without the constant dread of running into a creeper. As a woman, I will always have to be on my guard. I will always have to expect the worst of strange men I meet, because I have learned at an early age that many men are not to be trusted. If I were a man, life would be soooo easy. I could walk the streets without fear (unless i’m a minority), go to places alone, not have the adage, “their is safety in numbers” drummed into me. As a woman I will always have to carry pepper spray, my knife, and phone on me at all times. As a woman, I have to wear a bitch face on my walks so people (men) won’t want to talk to me, because as I have learned, being polite seems to be some sort of consent for creepers to try and assault you. As a woman, the society we live in disgusts me. That a woman can’t walk her dog by herself in broad fucking daylight, is so incredibly stupid, and it angers me beyond measure. I’m so incredibly ashamed to admit I was terrified, today. That every day I go out, I have some measure of fear in me knowing this could happen again, and again, as it has happened before. That I can’t go to the places I want to walk, because I should be in populated areas where other people can see me angers me. I have to be deprived of joyous, calming sights because of creepy men angers me. I’m angry and disgusted, what kind of society do we live in? “Oh, if I had been born a man!”- Beatrice.

I struggle with opening up to friends about how I'm feeling..

giraffewrangler:

because most of my friends are either dealing with a lot of things, have mental health problems of their own, or they’re really happy and bubbly and I don’t want to weight them down with my problems. I don’t want to be that “dark cloud” friend. I also don’t want to be the friend that everyone is…

This is exactly how I feel a lot of the time.

What men don’t understand is that women are FIERCELY PROTECTIVE of underage girls because we remember when we were young and some adult man made us uncomfortable or manipulated us or was inappropriate with us and we were powerless.

   

Correct
