A most excellent lesson in self-defense à la Agent Gracie Hart.

Friendly reminder that Miss Congeniality featured a practical self-defense lesson in the middle of a Hollywood movie while also dealing with with issues of sexual assault and victim blaming, dismantling the myth that all feminists need to look and act a certain way, featuring women of color in the pageant without it being any kind of issue, and bringing in an awesome female villain because women can be any kind of character thank you very much.

Rock on, Gracie Lou.

So, work used to be like a safe space where I only worked directly with women but now we hired this dude to replace the girl who quit.

And, not only do I have to deal with all the stupid, sexist shit that will inevitably occur with this man working with me. But. They are reorganizing our department, so now one of my two work friends is moving from the cube next to me to the other side of the office. And everyone is like, “Jess won’t be sad, she will love working with the dude!”

I don’t know what the fuck I did to give the impression that I would love working with a dude ever. I. Hate. Dudes. 

Filed under i creeped on his facebook and i think he is queer but that is only a slight improvement on a straight dude i am actually very bummed and not excited to meet this guy on monday or not sit by my friend anymore i just really fucking hate dudes and i was so blissful not having to see them literally ever we even just got a new lady ceo but no we hired a new fucking guy and he is going to sit next to me and want to like talk to me and stuff i don't care if this seems childish i just don't want to have to worry about like him making more money than me or moving up faster or like making little sexist dude comments or everyone like liking him more than me because dudes get praised more for doing the same things and i am mostly mad that my friend is sitting far away now like she is one of the only people i feel like I can talk to there ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh work blogging inane text post
