Now Playing Tracks

It’s 2am. 

I need to get off tumblr and go to bed. 

It’s Monday. So I guess I’ll talk to you guys on Thursday night! No classes Friday, which is a yay, since lots of finals and whatnot the next week. 

Be back Thursday. 

sometimes, it bothers me how much people go on about the lack of opportunities for women in general, as if it’s that way for every single woman. and while I acknowledge that there are definitely inequalities that need to be address, sometimes I feel bad because I haven’t experienced any of them. in fact, I’ve found quite the opposite. 

Because I’m a girl and not a guy, I was allowed to wear a hat in class, because the rule was written in male pronouns and didn’t apply to me. 

Because I’m a girl and not a guy, I didn’t get suspended the many times that I punched other girls, or guys for that matter. While they guys who gave each other dirty looks and vaguely ripped some homework. Hell, I was actively beating up this douche once, and all the hall monitor said was, ” be careful you don’t break your silence.” because it was day of silence. had that been a boy, they woulda been down to the APO so fast. 

Because I’m a girl and not a guy, people make assumptions that I follow the rules, and that the guys who say I don’t are liars. Which is why one time when I “stabbed” this kid with a pencil, he got in trouble and I didn’t. 

Because I’m a girl and not a guy, I got away with treating people like shit. Everyone says girls can’t be abusers and they’re wrong. 

Because I’m a girl and not a guy, I’ve always gotten away with wearing boys clothes without a single comment that didn’t come from a five year old. 

Because I’m a girl and not a guy, I’ve never gotten shit for chasing a small child into the bathroom of the opposite gender. 

And even beyond that. Okay. As a not-straight girl, I’ve experience almost no discrimination. 

I met one homophobe that actually said anything. We had an interesting conversation. He doesn’t like that I’m gay. I don’t like that he hunts. We moved on with our days because you never like everything about those around you. I’ve never gotten shit for liking girls, and I’ve never actively hid that I did. (For some reason, several people have been surprised to learn that I’m not straight, and I am unsure of why as I was literally a human rainbow for awhile.)

I don’t know.

Just my experience. 

I’ve found more benefits than downfalls of being a girl. And a not-straight girl. 

punsicle:

have you ever stayed up late with someone texting or chatting and known as the hours ticked by that you’d be ridiculously tired in the morning but it didnt matter because it was really fun and totally worth losing sleep over just to laugh with someone and enjoy their company maybe and then the next day you keep tiredly recalling how much fun it was while you’re falling asleep in class and that makes it not so bad that you’re tired anymore
