What I Meant to Write In My Whiny Post:

Posted on

1. Damn, I am really really busy, and it’s giving me a sleepy.

2. It’s not enough to be a political feminist; you have to be a personal feminist too. You have to look at the way you treat your friends and family; you have to examine your individual biases, your contradictions. Feminism is not just theoretical. It doesn’t just apply to Other People. It should spill over into all your interactions.

3. Probably don’t tell your kid that nobody will ever love them, since, if nothing else, you should love your kid, and yes, while I get the point you’re making (“you’re a heinous bitch who no man will ever want”), 1) a huge fuck you on behalf of single ladies everywhere, and 2) wow, really?

4. Basically what I said. “Yes, he’s kind of a misogynist, but I still like him” = unacceptable. People who are sexist, racist, and/or classist are bad people. It really is that simple! Someone with biases who is working to become more understanding and aware = great! Someone who is a dick and doesn’t care = not great. Not great at all. These things are dealbreakers in much the way that puppy-kicking is a dealbreaker.

5. This part of South Dakota has some pretty scenery, but politically it is a backwards shithole, and the town is cliquey, and we suffer from a dearth of maple trees. I can haz Vermont?

6. Rape Threat Tyler is a terrible person, and I’m not sorry he got head-injured.

7. Munchausen’s Mike is also a terrible person, and I hope his life is lousy.

8. I haven’t had a normal meal since I was 12, which blows.

9. Vodka is a hell of a substance.

Also, here is a puppy with a puppy:

About Paprika

Paprika Davis is a perpetually annoyed twenty-something college student waitress who would rather be a squirrel. The lack of commas in the previous sentence bothers her, but her laziness overrides her desire to improve the writing.

  1. 1. Alcohol + no sleep + stress = sad pandas. And that’s not just you.

    2. Feminism, like being anti-phobias and anti-rape and anti-bullying, isn’t about theoretical conversations. Sure, those things are great in their own right, and hopefully they change some minds (which have to be open for changing in the first place – otherwise we’re all just here to make our own arguments sound better. for ourselves). But. The really nitty-gritty of these things is when they are physically applied to life.

    3. Dealbreakers are dealbreakers. Period.

    4. There still exist terrible people in the world. *le heavy sigh*. I’d be happy to never have a conversation about rape culture and the patriarchy again if that were no longer true.

    5. Make that phone call, k? Please? For me? I’m the one on the other side of that. Not making the phone call leads nowhere good.
