And WHY we aren’t there.
Sometimes I kind of feel sorry for misogynists who try to troll me. Because, Firstly, I talk down to them so hard they must feel like naughty toddlers, but the minute one of them tries to sexually harass me, I report them so hard it’s not funny.

My relationship with female action hero’s is complicated. I find them empowering, but their bodies trigger me.

Tinkerbell measuring her hips in peter pan impacted me greatly.
I know it’s wrong, but I can’t help but feel incredibly pissed off.
Some racist fuckwit is getting a reward for murdering an african american kid worth hundreds of thousands of dollars through gofundme, and I am struggling to raise the funds for my PhD.
Are you fucking kidding me???
I know this isn’t about me, but I still feel fucking pissed off. On SO MANY levels.
