In this episode we conclude 6 Things You Might Not Think Are Harassment But Definitely Are (Because Apparently We Need To Clear A Few Things Up) by Kat George.
But first, let us digress.
Me: with unshaven legs, wearing the nanna panties, possibly pushing that one extra day without washing my hair (when it’s starting to look kind of Loki from Thor — manky, oily, and sticking to my head), staying home all day on Sunday not wearing a bra and forgetting to clean my teeth in the morning. I get slack because there’s no one to impress but myself, and putting on a new pair of tights when the ones I wore yesterday aren’t visibly dirty just seems a bit luxurious when no one else is going to smell my feet at the end of the day but me.

Not that I’m saying there’s anything wrong with being gross; being gross is the best, but not being gross shouldn’t be a precondition of dating (or maybe it’s the other way around and we should just all agree to smash down the fourth wall and be gross all the time?). Also, and maybe more importantly, there’s nothing wrong with being alone and actually admitting that I’ve come to really enjoy and appreciate my own company, probably a lot more than I enjoy the company of a lot of the guys I’ve dated.
Kat spent Valentines Day alone. How shocked are you?
Title: 12 Super Sexist Things About The ’90s You’ve Probably Blocked Out
5. The Fact That Our “Feminist” Icons Were All Super White
Gwen Stefani, Fiona Apple, Winona Ryder, Drew Barrymore, Buffy, Romy and Michelle, Murphy Brown, Lisa Loeb, Shirley Mason… so many of the feminist icons we celebrated in the ’90s were white. But we know that representation is key, and when our feminist icons are so limited, that’s a big problem for intersectionality and inclusivity.
10. The Invention Of The Friend Zone
Invented by Joey on Friends, the Friend Zone, bred under the notion that women somehow owe men something for their time, has plagued us since the ’90s. Once Joey declared Ross the “mayor of the Friend Zone” after another woman he was nice to rebuffed his advances, it became open season for “nice guys” everywhere to feel indignant when girls weren’t attracted to them.
Twitter wisdom from Kat:
Attention whoring on social media:
Finally, a woman has EVERY right to ignore a man harassing her on the street. She’s more than at liberty to walk by in silence. When a man becomes angered over this, or seeks a reaction out of the woman, THAT IS A FURTHER HARASSMENT.
OMG I’M TYPING IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS!!!! PATRIARCHY!!!!!!
So much strong, so much independent, so much fish bicycle. And that’s why I have to change my behaviour to manage her emotions.
Wall hitting women on feministbook talk about how much physical violence they want to do to men who tell them to smile. Because if women ran the world there would be no wars or violence.
The take away from these comments: Women are allowed to threaten violence against men if the men make them uncomfortable.
But if you say that Muslims raping women and children and makes you uncomfortable that’s a hate crime.
If you are going to buy things for a woman and hope (hope is not a process) that she will have sex with you do so via my Amazon affiliate link at cls.link/amazon. I promise you I will buy this Supergirl figurine so I can objectify women.
Send some commies to Canada. They said they would go if the Trumpenfuhrer was elected President but they are too dumb to figure out Canada is to the north and too poor to get there ’cause they have liberal arts degrees. Commies To Canada.
