everyone just acts like boys asking you out is a normal thing that happens a lot and its never happened to me so idk whats wrong with me

in a display of painful pragmatism I always figured it has to do with the company one keeps and attracts? like, dudes *I* have historically associated with romantically (although not by conscious effort) have been underfed nerds with social anxiety issues - I don’t hang out with, nor fit the conventional standards for attractiveness, of the outgoing dudebros who make a habit of asking girls out

Like, asking a girl out at random would require that dude to be prepared to either be rejected or go out and do a thing with a stranger and just by mere observation most college guys have egos far too fragile for such a risk unless they have a thick armor of douchebaggery built up ahead of time

like that time that one dude on the street said his friend thought i was cute like yes that is perfect i will graciously take this nugget and run as fast as i can in the other direction and we will never see each other again or make eye contact

i’d like to know that boys think i’m attractive without ever having to see or speak to them or reveal my identity in any way

"Meanwhile, the presumed stockpile of penis photos taken by Hollywood actors remains curiously untouched"

A line from an EW article questioning why it’s only women in Hollywood who have their privacy violated x (via pansycakeofwesteros)

Funny that.

Dana Goldstein, author of The Teacher Wars: A History of America’s Most Embattled Profession, spoke to Fresh Air about how teachers have become both “resented and idealized” over 200 years of history.  
In the interview Goldstein explains how teaching became a woman’s profession:

"A lot of people are surprised to learn that back in 1800, 90 percent of American teachers were actually male. Today we know that actually 76 percent of [them are] female, so how did this huge flip happen?
The answer is that as school reformers began to realize in the 1820s that schooling should be compulsory — that parents should be forced to send their kids to school, and public education should be universal — they had to come up with a way to do this basically in an affordable manner, because raising taxes was just about as unpopular back then as it is now. So what we see is this alliance between politicians and education reformers in the early 19th century to redefine teaching as a female profession.
They do this in a couple ways: First, they argue that women are more moral in a Christian sense than men. They depict men as alcoholic, intemperate, lash-wielding, horrible teachers who are abusive to children. They make this argument that women can do a better job because they’re more naturally suited to spend time with kids, on a biological level. Then they are also quite explicit about the fact that [they] can pay women about 50 percent as much — and this is going to be a great thing for the taxpayer.”

there’s a comic book store in my town that gives ladies a 10% discount and the people who work there are really friendly so lots of ladies show up to hang out and buy comics and one time i was looking through some new releases and this guy walked in, saw all the ladies, did a double take, and said really loudly and condescendingly, ‘there sure are a lot of girls in here for a comic store!’ and laughed but no one else laughed with him and it was glorious
