"There’s a voice inside my head constantly thinking ‘I need to feel thin.’"

Professionalism and the Search
Ok, so I’ve been working since my junior year of high school and have had my first real adult job and am therefore no stranger to the workforce.  I have a pretty strong resume compared to most millennials my age.  I am a hard worker.  I have an intense work ethic.  I know how to conduct myself professionally.  I work extremely well with others.  I am in grad school, so, clearly, I am educated and driven.  Why is it so difficult for me to find a simple, part-time job to help pay my bills (and student loans) while I work on my Master’s Degree?  Yes, I will have my degree and a lot more opportunities by this time next year, but I am not comfortable without work.  I keep hearing that I am overqualified or that I need to be more available.  Should the fact that I have already had a salaried job hurt my progress?  Is it fair that my degree is keeping me from making money?  Should my pursuit of higher education really count against me?

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!?!

This is floating around on Facebook and I am seething.  If you are raped, you are apparently being a selfish individual unless you keep a living reminder of the harsh act of violence that you already have to hold in your memories forever.

Rape Culture? What is this “Rape Culture” you speak of?Seriously though, this is terrifying. God forbid I wear a skirt outside — I’m just ASKING   to be raped if I do that.

The 58% statistic actually terrifies me more than any other. Suddenly change the word and you don’t care? 
No one will ever be able to convince me that words hold no power.

this makes me sick to my stomach with anger and fear

Alright, my lovelies! I’m on a tirade today.  I have seen first hand that misogyny is alive and well and ignorant people do not want to be educated.  I was told that because I believe that a person should be able to where whatever he or she wants, go wherever he or she wants, or drink as much as he or she wants that if I were to get drunk and raped that I would deserve it.  NEWS FLASH! That HAS happened to me.  FUCK THIS PATRIARCHAL BULLSHIT!

Also, apparently, breaking up with my ex because he cheated on my while he was drinking is victim blaming (this was seriously the argument thrown my way and attempt to use my words against me).

Enjoy the above clip!  Feminism, friends! Dig it!
