The last photo is me doing my usual 'depressed' walk. I get in this position when I am either a) tired b) feel like relaxing c) carrying a heavy bag (such as my cross body school bag). I swear I don't do it for attention or because I want help or because I am DEPRESSED! I only call it the depressed position because that's what it looks like -- although I often do it for the sole reason of exhaustion overcoming me. I just continue walking.. Having a normal conversation, whilst looking like a zombie. Just wanted to let y'all know that.. My pals are used to it now.
ANYWAYS, there's something I'd like to talk about -- street *sexual* harassment. I can't make sense of men staring on the street to ladies, both young and older, in a really disturbing manner when we wear thigh highs or stockings. It's something I unfortunately don't think I'll ever be able to grasp.
Is it because it's sexier? How, though? Wouldn't NOT wearing knee highs and revealing the bare leg be more sexy? I just don't understand. I really don't.. I have spent hours just thinking about this and nothing has popped into my mind. It's not fathomable, to me at least.
The way I dress is not related in any way to my sexual life and preferences.. I'm being real, here. Have these people ever thought for a quick second that whether or not I am sexually active is none of their business? For that reason, shouting offensive remarks and blatantly degrading my gender should not even be considered.. These misogynistic idiots don't deserve the right to dictate what I can wear. Now, that brings me to slut-shaming.. But if I go into that, then this blog post would turn into a novel.
I remember reading this tweet: "Hoodies cause death the same way miniskirts cause rape. Stop victim blaming; persecute hate crimes, racism and violence, not clothing." -- and they are 110% right. Everyone has the right to wear whatever the hell they want whether it be a suit to the local grocery store or a bikini to a high-class restaurant.
This is all just a product of a bunch of thoughts that have been idle in my mind until I decided to write them down after reading Shevah's blog post here. Screw society.. I can't help but feel so hopeless when I see these things happen or when I experience them. Something else that makes me feel futile about this world is when I read things like this. This mother lied about her address so her son could attend a good elementary school in another school district, miles from theirs which has notoriety for being awful.
Okay, well thanks for still stickin' around, guys! I will post regularly now.. I hope. I will. I promise. But I am terrible with promises, but I really promise this time. *triple double donut daze pinky promise*
