opera142: (The Precious)
Ugh, today's been a hot mess and I just barked at two campaign volunteers who showed up on my doorstep. Beyond the basic humanity fail, I tripped over one of my own lines in the sand: that treating the woman in front of you with respect and kindness is equally as important than learnin' everyone on yet another way women are getting shunted to the side.

Long, shameful story short. Two campaign volunteers come to our door, and want to speak with Moe, and I'm like "my opinion doesn't matter?" and the lady is like, "sure. but we want to speak with [Moe]."

and I'm like, so only the dude's voice from this house matters?

and she's all, his name is on our list.

Me *walks away*

So, now my day is still a hot mess, and I've got bonus self-made basic decency fail. Casual disregard of other people: I want to be better than that.

I'm trying to find articles/discussions about the fine line girls feel they need to walk regarding sexual activity. Too much and you're a slut, not enough and you're repressed, and all Google gives me is: Everything's fine! Women are free now YAY.

Lies and cover-ups!

Too tl:dr for you? Fags and women are ruining church for the cool, hip males! Wah!

The poor males, denied hearing the word because they were too lazy or too "cool, hip" or too not interested or too watching football or too asleep from staying up all night playing Rock Band, too whatever reason, I don't care women and their wussified version Jesus are lamers.

How about going to a place of worship and showing a little faith because it's something that isn't only about you? How about showing you have the basic brain power and the minimal amounts of compassion and empathy necessary to comprehend that not everything said or believed or repeated by the other 6 billion beings on the planet has to totally jive with your little life?
