So, after two days of pretty decent blog posts (if I may say so myself), I have nothing to say. So I figured I'll let others say it for me.
HERE is a short post by writer and publisher Hayden Trenholm about casual sexism, and how it is so casual and normal that we generally don't notice it (as a result some wrongfully declare sexism "dead" and feminism "unnecessary").
I just want to add here that I notice casual sexism. I notice it because I experience it. Every. Single. Day. It is a constant weight I feel I'm continually pushing against just to stand up. It's exhausting. And worse, there are people who flat out refuse to acknowledge it exists, and they tell me just how wrong I am, and how wrong it is I feel what I feel. Trying to get those people to understand is about as easy as trying to grow wings with wishes.
It's nice to see that some people, even if they're not as directly affected (casual sexism hurts men too), acknowledge it. Thanks, Hayden. I appreciate it.
Do you know someone with anxiety or depression? What to support them? HERE's a quick guide on how to tread around them. While not the same, the two are linked, and I've found the advice here to my liking when applied to people with depression.
And HERE are some animal buddies that might melt your hearts. Except for the fox and bunny. I'm pretty sure that bunny is dead as door nails...
Well, that is enough to be getting on with don't you think? Enjoy these reasons for procrastination. I'm off to attempt more Welsh.
