This happens all the time. Every car horn, every whistle, every cat call and lewd exclamation, strengthens the lesson I’ve been taught over and over and over again throughout my entire life: as a lady, my body is on public display and open for judgment—from anyone.
Most men who will see this are decent, rational guys who will sympathize with my feelings. A small, vocal handful of dudes will send me private messages about how women like me can’t “take a fucking compliment.” This is not for either of you. This is for the guys who don’t know yet that attracting unwanted attention doesn’t make women feel good, no matter how nice their intentions are. I can’t speak for everyone, but I can say that I personally get embarrassed, often scared, and always—ALWAYS—ashamed, in some way, in how I look.
So… now that you know, cut it out. Tell all the girls how nice they are and how amazing they are at their jobs instead.
this sort of thing happens to me all the time as i walk around town and it just completely bums my day.
I’ve embraced my inner domestic goddess, (deep, deep, very deep within me).
But seriously. I have learnt so much about myself and my lack of common sense.
At first, I was baking up a storm…
Then, this has happened:
But, I still managed to make some scrum-didly-umptuous baked goodies! :D
Choc Chip Cookies (XXL)
Red Velvet Cupcakes
Hansel & Gretel Themed Gingerbread House (The bane of my existence)
So, bow down.
It took me a week to build that gingerbread house and it’s still ugly.
I burnt 2 cupcakes (how does that even happen? 2 in a batch of 18?!)
And those choc chip cookies were more like chocolate chips with added dough (but that’s cool).
Now, I’m fat.
Be very careful when admiring this gifset. In fact, you probably shouldn’t look at it at all unless you’re over 17.
I’d almost wish for someone to ask me this just so I could give this response
I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO DISRESPECTED
I AM IN AUSTRALIA, NOT FUCKING NARNIA
