6:05 – 6:58 can be, i think in my opinion, applied to most stressed nations.

it’s difficult, though, because politics aren’t the only thing that make a stable nation. stability hangs in the balance of 5 parts and if one doesn’t support it’s own weight, the whole thing seems to collapse.

slut-shaming

do you slut shame? then ask yourself these questions:

  1. who are you to police another person’s body?
  2. does that person’s actions directly affect you? (ie your health, well being.) N.B i don’t include happiness in this as this is something that is relative and completely your choice.
  3. who are you to reduce someone’s person (qualities, personality, etc) to a single word?
  4. do you think oppression is more socially acceptable than a person’s “rampant sex life”? (spoiler alert: it’s less.) ***
  5. do you believe in living in a patriarchy? (a system of society or government in which the father or eldest male is head of the family and descent is traced through the male line.) no? then quit encouraging misogyny. 
  6. what do you gain calling someone a slut? like really. honestly. do you gain happiness? money? fame? glory? self-satisfaction? chances are, the answer is no.

*** op·pres·sion

  1. The unjust use of power to enforce an unequal relationship and deny others rights or value.”

How to talk to your daughter about her body, step one: Don’t talk to your daughter about her body, except to teach her how it works. Don’t say anything if she’s lost weight. Don’t say anything if she’s gained weight. Here are some things you can say instead:

i remember my mother setting poor examples but she was not afraid to cook with butter.

i love bacon and butter and salt and chocolate and chips. she never said “don’t eat that. you’ll get fat” and for that, i thank her every. single. day.

she just chose to make comments on herself in front of me as well as comments about women / men on the telly.

it’s hard to believe i was starting work 12 hours ago

and it was my first day on DTOB (Drive-Thru bar) and it was bananas!

it took me a while to really get the groove of things and i’m happy they didn’t have me start during a rush.

but my drive-thru times were, and i quote, ‘NOT BAD’ for my first time. 

it was really tough today, though. i found out someone i really cared about passed away yesterday. i couldn’t bail on work, though, as 

  1. i was the 3rd in so they needed me, and;
  2. work helped take my mind off of things.

anyway, i’m really tired so i’ll keep this short.
