So today wasn’t really a great day. For starters, I was nearly ten minutes late to Geometry and I found out I might not be able to go to Ben Gibbard’s first solo NYC show. And secondly, during Chem class I was sexually harassed by the three MORONS in my Chem TABLE. (The dictionary defines Sexual Harassment as “Harassment (typically of a woman) in a workplace, or other professional or social situation, involving the making of unwanted sexual advances”). Despite the fact that I asked them to Please Stop, and shot them several I-am-Seriously-Considering-Murder Looks over the course of the two-hour long Lab period they just kept going. Even when the teacher asked them to STOP, they persevered. WHY? I have no idea. WHY did they feel the need to tell me that If I was SMART, then I would MAKE OUT with them? WHY did they THINK I would even LIKE to make out with them? WHY, of all things, did The Biggest Moron of All of Them¹ imply that I WAS LUCKY to HAVE HIM TALK TO ME? WHY would he THINK it was okay TO MAKE ME UNCOMFORTABLE even when I (assertively) asked him to? MOST IMPORTANTLY, WHY DID THEY FEEL THE NEED TO REDUCE ME TO NOTHING MORE THAN THE BUTT OF THEIR JOKES? WHY DID THEY FEEL THE NEED TO HUMILIATE ME LIKE THAT? (I wonder, is it because I AM AT LEAST TWICE AS SMART AS THEY WILL EVER BE????)
I. JUST. DON’T. GET. IT.
I’ve never expressed interest in any of those guys in any way, other than to ask them to PLEASE SHUT UP AND LET ME DO MY WORK, or to PLEASE PASS ME THE FREAKING BEAKERS, BECAUSE I AM THE ONE DOING ALL THE FRACKING LAB-WORK.
AND EVEN THIS KID M²,
whom I though was somewhat decent, WAS MAKING JOKES ABOUT HOW I WAS PROBABLY TOO “INNOCENT AND BRAINY” TO EVEN MAKE OUT WITH A GUY. AND HE MOCKED ME FOR NEVER HAVING DATED A GUY, LET ALONE MADE OUT WITH ONE. I NEVER KNEW BEING SMART AND BEING A FEMALE WERE MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE! THANK THE LORD FOR PUTTING SUCH AN INTELLECTUAL/PHILOSOPHICAL GIANT IN MY PATH! I HAVE BEEN ENLIGHTENED.
NO WONDER OUR SOCIETY IS THE WAY IT IS. NO WONDER THERE ARE SO MANY GIRLS WHO FEEL THEY CAN NEVER BE GOOD ENOUGH FOR A GUY UNLESS SHE MAKES OUT WITH HIM/HAS SEX WITH HIM. OH MY GOD. I AM SICK OF IT. I AM SICK OF BEING TOLD THAT WOMEN ARE MEN’S EQUALS BY SOCIETY, AND THEN HAVE SOCIETY ITSELF COMPLETELY REFUTE WHAT IT SAID, THROUGH IT’S OWN ACTIONS AND THOUGHTS AND EVERYTHING ELSE OUT THERE. I AM SICK OF HORNY, INSECURE HIGH SCHOOL BOYS SAYING SHIT TO GIRLS BECAUSE IT WILL MAKE THEM FEEL BETTER.♦
