The Sociological Cinema
There was actually research that was done that found that women who used an “I have a boyfriend/husband” excuse to reject unwanted sexual attention and harassment by their bosses were more likely to be left alone than those who used any other excuse (including “I’m not interested”)
a gross old man on the train last month asked if I was interested in older men so I told him I was a lesbian AND HE JUST KEPT ON HITTING ON ME like bro I don’t understand how I can be more explicit about my TOTAL LACK OF INTEREST IN YOUR CREEPY SEXUAL ADVANCES. clearly I should have just told him another dude had first dibs!
sometimes I forget that Americans have to pay for university upfront like what the fuck is that are u guys ok
No we’re not okay.
We’re not okay at all.
let’s put it this way: it is now six months since I finished being in school, marking the time when I have to start paying back my student loans. I am about $15,000 in debt. and I am the luckiest person I know to only have that much to pay back. I was fully funded for all of my graduate degrees and my parents paid off a big chunk of one of my undergraduate loans for me before I took over the payments. “just fifteen thousand dollars” in debt for my undergraduate degree. the American university system is hella fucked up.
Since it’s International Men’s Day, I asked a bunch of women who definitely exist to tell me styles men rock that they hate. (Inspired by this post.)
“I never really liked a man wearing an oxford. They always reminded me of Catholic school and priests, and not in a hot porn kind of way. Just way too uptight.” — Sharona, 32
“Clearly you didn’t feel like trying when you woke up this morning and decided to put on a t-shirt.” — Krystal, 27
“Belts really raise a red flag for me because like, clearly you can’t afford a tailor if you need a belt. No thanks.” — Veronica, 25
On scarves… “What’s it like being stuck in the closet?” — Kayla, 21
“Suits are just too formal. Don’t make me feel like I have to like, always be ready to go to a gala. Sometimes I just want to relax and watch TV!” — Riley, 28
“I’d rather become celibate than date a guy who wears jeans. Only slobs wear jeans.” — Leilani, 29
On plaid shorts… “I don’t want to be dating some douche from Vampire Weekend.” — Hanna, 19
“Ties are a sure sign that a dude has some sort of complex where he’s trying to be like his father. Ties are for old dudes.” — Lucy, 21
“No offense, but cologne is for sluts. Sorry.” — Susie, 20
On bow ties… “Yeah, no. Go back to England, Doctor Who.” — Katrina, 28
“Sorry you were rejected from the minor leagues. Wearing a baseball hat isn’t going to change the fact that you’re a failed athlete. Oh and are you really even a fan of that team or are you just wearing it because the colors go with your outfit?” — Jennifer, 30
“Polo shirts. Do you even really play polo? No. It’s so fake.” — Faye, 23
On sunglasses… “What, you can’t look at me in the eyes? What’s your problem?” — Quinn, 25
“I can’t stand a man in boxers. Sure sign of a man stunted in his teens if he’s still wearing boxers.” — Gayle, 34
“Tighty whities. Who are you, Walter White? Are you a meth dealer? Because that is so not something I want in my life.” — Liz, 25
On jackets… “They’re a little gimmicky.” — Melonie, 18
“I can’t stand it when a guy’s hair is done up with hair gel. I like it natural, but it still needs to be styled. Hair gel proves to me that you’re trying way too hard.” — Parker, 35
“Khakis are so nasty. If I wanted to fuck a dude from Best Buy, I’d fuck a dude from Best Buy.” — Denise, 20
On sports jerseys… “You’re walking around with another man’s name on your back. Isn’t that kind of gay?” — Shannon, 31
“Beanies always make guys heads look fat. Gross.” — Tara, 24

On watches… “Are you too much of a hipster to look at your phone like the rest of us?” — Elsa, 29
“I always wonder why men wear cargo shorts. Why do you need that many pockets? Are you storing up acorns and berries for the winter?” — Connie, 31
“Those New Balance sneakers always rubbed me the wrong way. So you’d rather be comfortable than look good for me? I see how it is.” — Becca, 31
On v-necks… “Slutty.” — Monique, 27
“Men who carry around big shoulder bags always seemed high maintenance to me. I don’t need to date a man like that.” — Nina, 39
“Colorful dress socks always made me think that like whoever was wearing them must have really low self-esteem. You’re just pleading for attention. I don’t have time for that.” — Tracie, 27
On peacoats… “A little too 1940s for my taste. You’re not in the Navy getting ready to hop on a battleship to sail to Guadalcanal. Get over yourself.” — Brandy, 30
