this is truly a great list. i identify with the last one.
@themmases WORRRRRD. "only in a rape culture do some dude's private, wishful feelings get to redefine an entire relationship over my public, accurate ones." yes.
@shantasybaby not cray; you are in fact doing it right.
that article is nonsense. it's a skill, like any, you practice it and eventually you can do it. keep practicing and later on you can do it well or more often. i have legs like tree trunks and matching booty...well over 150lbs, but i can still do 2 or 3 unaided, and a whole bunch more with the rubber band thing from the bar to my foot. took some time though.
this article is relevant to my interests. feel u, girl.
to all of you considering taking up a combat art but feeling intimidated/don't want dudes to be weird about it: START TODAY. having this stuff as a hobby is a great way of kinda automatically weeding out insecure douchebags and guys that can't handle a little playing with gender roles.
ahh! this was amazing and brought me to tears!
@The Kendragon exactly my reaction, i feel like i miss these people too and i'll never meet them. truly a sign of good writing.
oh my god i love this! the whole december capricorn paragraph was genius! i want to go swimming now.
i love this comment thread and this article SO HARD.
@H.E. Ladypants Yes, other women feel the same way. That's me. Usually I feel best when wearing boyish clothes but even with my crewcut I have a "feminine face" so I don't pass for male in public very often. When I put on a dress and makeup and heels for social purposes I feel like such a fake, and am a little anxious that people will notice.
