Your job is now your Time Lord name. The last digit of your phone number is the current regeneration you are in. The nearest clothing item to your right is now the most notable item in your current wardrobe. The last person you texted is your current companion. Your favorite word is now your catchphrase.
Every time I am in public and I hear a man chide a woman on her use of profanity: I get even angrier when I hear men say, “Don’t you know any other words” or “That’s not very lady-like.” First, equating profanity to sub-par intelligence is just insulting and frankly elitist. Intelligent people swear. Second, any woman has the right to define for herself her own relationship to her womanhood. She has the right to build for herself, her own femininity. Period. She doesn’t need some man telling her what is or isn’t “lady-like.”
Street Harassment: I saw this with a lot more frequency when I was living in Baltimore, but I’ve seen it or heard about it once or twice in Southern California too. In Baltimore, one particularly bad instance of it happened when I was walking home from a bar. I was a block away from my apartment, when this guy drove up beside me, said, “Baby, I love you” then mimed for me his (lack of) cunnilingual skill. In Los Angeles, a good friend of mine was driving home from her teaching job, and on the freeway, a truck driver pulled up beside her car and pressed a paper with his phone number accompanied by an amateur sketch of what (he thinks) his junk looks like. This shit isn’t flattering. This shit isn’t going to get you laid. In fact, doing this shit might one day get some very hot beverage “accidentally” spilled on your junk. Just saying.
The Weeping Angel you called ugly? She can't even look at herself in the mirror. See that unemotional Cyberman? He used to be one of us. The Oods that you make fun of? They get treated as slaves everyday. The lady that you called crazy? She knows all of time and space. See the weird man with the bowtie and the fez? He's the loneliest man in the universe. 95% of you won't reblog this. Reblog this if you're against bullying in the Time-Space Continuum.
