Is there a kosher way to ask people to do the keep me in their prayers/thoughts thing as I go about getting a chronic injury treated? Like, I honestly kind of want the warm vibes; it looks like it’s going to be a process and the entire situation makes me feel really anxious and angry. Anxious, because it’s a process, and angry because it’s a leftover from the asshole I left last year. I would like some peace about it all.

minimum wage doesn’t even TOUCH a living wage, racism and sexism are alive and well, children are killed in schools on a regular basis, those who make it to college end up with hundreds of thousands in debt, our basic rights are being stripped from us daily, and adults actually believe that SELFIES are the cause for this generation’s demise

"

If you kill a person, you’re a murderer. If you steal, no one would hesitate to call you a thief. But in America, when you force yourself on someone sexually, some people will jump through flaming hoops not to call you a rapist.

As reported by Al Jazeera America, colleges across the country are replacing the word “rape” in their sexual assault policies with “non-consensual sex” because schools don’t want label students “rapists”.

This really is every representation debate in sci-fi and fantasy ever.

Imagining dragons and elves and hobbits is fine, but imagining a world not inhabited entirely by white people? That would be unrealistic.

Confession time: I hang out enough in /r/relationships on reddit, mostly because I enjoy reading up on how to navigate relationships like an adult, and partially because I think I’ve learned a lot on how to handle the asshole type in the last few years. One of my reddit buddies told me I should write a book on how to navigate break ups and the shit people say involving them and called it the Dragon Lady’s Guide to Break Ups. At first I was kinda ‘eh’ about it, but for some reason now, I can kind of see a cover with Traci Lords with a pop art design saying “Beat it, creep”.

I have this little inkling of an idea with it. Stuff as a young woman I wish people told me about relationships. Navigating that no, I don’t have to ultimately please anyone but me, no, consent means yes and nothing else, and I don’t “owe” anyone anything. How to navigate the bullshit things assholes of any gender say after it ends, because you know you learn more about a person when they don’t get what they want rather than when they do. How to take care of yourself and not find it again. Life after abuse. Basically, how to not fall into every trap I managed to, and how to climb out if you do. 

…that’s if my book on North Korea doesn’t pan out. I still want to make my thesis a book, but there’s a lot on North Korea written by Westerners, and not enough books written by women for women on how to deal with assholes. None of that patronizing crap Cosmo writes. Real stuff. 

Eh? Worth thinking about?

Our generation needs to get over themselves. You’re going to hear things you don’t like. GET OVER IT. Nobody is obligated to like you or everything you do.
