Sidenote: it might just be my occasional ineptitude at distinguishing the dark green links from the black text, but I can't find a link to the original article in this post?
@wallsdonotfall I was giggling pretty madly at that screenshot gallery. In public.
@MollyculeTheory Got rejected from every school I'd applied to. Time for plan b!
@wee_ramekin It's an epidemic!! I definitely don't want to date my fuckbuddies either (see: sleeping with my hottie/deadbeat drug dealer), and part of his garbled explanation for why he didn't want to hurt me had to do with him explaining that he's "not a good guy," like he was effing James Dean or something. You're good where it counts, buddy, the rest is pretty irrelevant for my purposes!
I know it's late and Open Thread is long over (I have a new job where my computer screen faces out so everyone can see it and my Hairpin time has decreased by 500%) but I got a rant brewing.
Can we PLEASE get a moratorium on guys saying they "just don't want to hurt" us?? Especially when we're just talking about a casual sexual situation? SO disrespectful and autonomy-grabbing. I'm a grown lady, let me make my own decisions! I get that sometimes it's just a 'nicer' way of saying they want to end it for other reasons, but tonight when my FWB pulled that literally all it took was for me to say something along the lines of, "What? But I don't want to date you, I just want to bang. I like banging you!" for him to say, "Oh! Okay then, great, never mind, we're good!" WHYYYY do they need this weird reassurance, if I've already told you that I just want to hook up and not date then maybe, just maybe, that is actually what I meant? This is the third time this has happened to me and my bestie in as many months. The WORST. End rant, goodnight fair Hairpin, may you all be getting laid or not laid tonight according to your desires.
