    tough choice

  2. So this afternoon I was walking in town trying to get to the bookstore the Boyfriend & I were supposed to meet up and I was carrying a very very heavy bag of things I’d just bought.
    And that guy in a wheelchair who was coming in the opposite direction (he was 40ish, had black dirty hair and was dressed in what looked like pyjamas * ) started making “eh! eh!” noises that were apparently meant to attract my attention and when I ignored him he proceeded to wheel himself in front of me, blocking my way, all the time yelling “eh, eh madame”.
    "C’est quoi le problème?" I answered very VERY aggressively before stepping aside to walk around him and his wheelchair and he reversed, bumped into my leg, almost making me fall over, and said "eh t’es jolie, donne moi ton numéro et je te laisse passer" (give me your phone number and i’ll let you walk past me).
    I swear that wheelchair or not, disabled guy or not, I felt an urge to hurl my heavy as hell bag of shopping into his face but i took a deep breath, stepped off the pavement onto the street (without looking if a car was coming, fortunately there wasn’t) and telling him “allez casse-toi, va, tu m’énerves.”

    I’m just SO DONE with people.

    * Since the first question girls are asked is “what were you wearing to provoke it” and they’re required to thoroughly describe their clothes, hair and makeup, i’ve decided to reverse it and describe the men involved instead.

  3. For just one second, look at your life and see how perfect it is. Stop looking for the next secret door that is going to lead you to your real life. Stop waiting. This is it: there’s nothing else. It’s here, and you’d better decide to enjoy it or you’re going to be miserable wherever you go, for the rest of your life, forever.

  5. The ‘New Adult’ Genre Is Still Condescending and Pointless

    " […] as many writers and readers of fantasy and science fiction will tell you, for a robust literary world, we need fewer genre distinctions, not more."

    Also, to answer the (rhetorical) question in the articl: yes it IS sexist to market something based on the assumption that women aged 18 to 25 need an extra intellectual step between young adult literature and adult literature.

    And sorry, but the journalist is also being condescending by making this gradation which suggests that YA is intellectually inferior to “proper genres”. There are no “proper genres”. There are different genres for different tastes. I’m not into YA but I could feed on SF. I like myself an occasional high fantasy but wouldn’t try to read ever new publication. I try to keep an eye on literary fiction. It’s a matter of taste.
    In my opinion, the only real difference between books is whether writers did their job or just thought the reader would be silly enough not to notice they didn’t even proof read the thing.

    • Early Feminists: Oh hey, we see that you can vote. We would like to vote also. I mean, since most of those laws effect us too and all.
    • Men: YOU JUST WANT SUPERIORITY OVER MEN!
    • Mid-century Feminists: Hey, that whole thing about how you can have careers and earn a living wage outside the home? Yes that sounds nice, we'd like the option to do that as well.
    • Men: YOU WANT A MATRIARCHY, THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT!
    • Late 20th century Feminists: Hey we would like to make our own choices about our reproductive health, just like you've always had.
    • Men: YOU ARE TRYING TO TAKE MEN'S RIGHTS AWAY!
    • Modern-day feminists: Hey, if you could you stop sexually assaulting/harassing us and them blaming us for it, that'd be pretty great.
    • Men: THIS IS MISANDRY, MISANDRY I SAY! FEMINISTS HAVE GONE TOO FAR!
    • Feminists: Um...
    • Men: THE END OF MEN IS NIGH! MALE OPPRESSION IS REAL! THE MATRIARCHAL AGE IS UPON US!

    I love when people randomly follow me because I assume they’ve just seen something I said and went “ah yes. This nerd seems particularly strange. Let’s see what else it does”
