THERE ARE MANY THINGS I SHOULD BE DOING but instead I'm gonna tell you guys all about the yuri I'm reading, because I'm responsible like that.

I've been reading a lot of light, fluffy yuri lately. I was reluctant at first to read stuff that's set in high school, but now I kind of love it. It's perfect when you want something cute and fun to read. :D Anyway, ONTO THE MANGA!

pictures within, nothing too bad )

NEW LAYOUT! CHECK IT OUT, BITCHES.

I recently read Batwoman: Elegy, and it was amaaaaaaaazing. (Highly recommended! Lesbian ex-military superheroine who both kicks ass AND has a personality. So much love ♥_♥) And my livejournal needed a facelift anyway, so. :D

So, ~ladies, do you ever notice guys acting overly condescending to you but not towards other guys?

I've noticed it a lot lately. I've been reluctant to say anything because I thought it was my shitty self-esteem imagining things or me being oversensitive, but I'm noticing a definite trend here. :|

To the story: we did peer reviews in my writing class. My essay was shit and too short, so I wasn't happy with it. I was in a group with two guys and we traded papers. Then came concrit. Like I said, my essay was too short and shitty, but one of the guys was just... idk, there was a definite condescending vibe in the room. And his essay definitely wasn't any better than mine.

SIGH. I guess it could be run-of-the-mill everyday smugness, but when I'm dealing with smug women the dynamic is never quite the same. :/ I think maybe it's a combination of the two -- doesn't have to be either or, amirite?

I hate being in situations where I'm the only girl. I never felt this way before! But now even when the guys are being nice enough I tend to feel uncomfortable. There's this feeling of inadequacy that I get less around women, but I'm not sure if that's the guys or me. I could be projecting.

idk, flist. I DO NOT KNOW. It's also 3 in the morning so I shouldn't be posting rn, lol.
cornhobble: (Xena will fuck your shit up)
FLIST! How many of you have seen Xena: the Warrior Princess? I remember watching a couple episodes when I was a kid and being impressed by her badass-ery, but that was it until recently.

I watched the first 4 episodes yesterday, and OMG. I AM IN LOVE. IT IS SO CAMPY AND AMAZING. Xena is badass and hot and Gabrielle is funny and also hot. It has RIDICULOUS FIGHTSCENES where Xena kills like 5 guys with one throw of her magical sentient Frisbee. Xena can stop swords with her motherfucking BARE HANDS, because she is that much cooler than you.

She has a TORTURED PAST and is trying to be good now but everyone thinks she is still evil!warrior!Xena but in reality she is good!warrior!Xena, new and improved and still hot.

I love her outfit and I love the horses (yay horses \o/) and I love the Xena/Gabrielle scenes. Gabrielle! I love Gabrielle. At first I thought she was annoying but then I realized that no, she is just talkative and cute and compliments Xena's smirkyness perfectly.

She and Gabrielle ride around and fight crime and stuff and stuff. It's amazing, okay. I loooooooove it. The ridiculousness makes me lol a lot, but in a good way. It's fun! I wish I had someone to watch with me, but I don't know cool people irl. :(

pet peeves

What are your pet peeves, flist?

For me it's when I hold the door open for a guy and they freak out and insist I go through first. Before anyone calls me a ~humorless feminist~, I am so cool with dudes holding the door open for me. In fact, I think holding the door for someone (regardless of gender~) is the polite thing to do.

But I don't appreciate a guy being all 'OH HOLY SHIT IS THAT A FAIR MAIDEN HOLDING THE DOOR FOR ME? I AM FAILING IN MY MANLY DUTIES, AND SHE MIGHT FAINT FROM THE EFFORT. OH NO, DON'T TAX YOUR ARM LIKE THAT, LET ME HELP.'

SIGH. Look dude, if I reach the door first I'm going to hold it for you. The only other two options would be (1) to slam it in your face, or (2) to stop and wait for you to open it for me. Both of these options are distinctly unappealing. :|

My dad told me that most guys didn't find women with short hair attractive.

I was like, 'omg, thank you! When I make decisions concerning my physical appearance, my main concern is getting the approval of (straight) dudes, how did you know? BRB, GETTING EXTENSIONS.'

wtf people, wtf

When you have friends that turn out to be somewhat sexist/homophobic/ist, what do you do?

There's this one guy I'm rather close with, but he's turned to be completely fail-y when it comes to women. Dude is totally sexist.

I've chosen to continue being friends with him in spite of it. I don't necessarily feel bad about this decision, because I don't think I should be obligated to be the perfect feminist who only surrounds herself with fellow perfect people (lol, that's not even possible).

But at the same time, it's like - can this friendship even last? I never let his sexism pass; if he says something misogynistic, I'll call him out on it. I can't help but think at some point he'll just get tired of arguing and cut off contact. I'm not going to stop being the Annoying Bitchy Feminist for anyone, but... I'd actually miss talking to him. :/

And knowing his ~tendencies... I judge him, ngl. That's probably not conductive to much of anything.

Sigh. idk, livejournal, I'm feeling a little melancholy and lonely today.

I don't understand why these boots aren't in my life. Or these. I mean, shit. LOOK AT THEM, THEY'RE AMAZING.

When I'm feeling bored and masochistic, I troll the internet for boots I want but will never be able to buy. ;_; Lately I've been looking at clothing, too. SIGH WHY WASN'T I BORN A MILLIONAIRE.

I got a haircut! It's just above chin level and kind of ~boyish in an unfashionable way, but I like it. I can't stand long hair, it's so annoying.

I need an icon of boots or something, you guys. IT WOULD NEVER NOT BE APPROPRIATE.

Hellooooo livejournal! MY LURKER TENDENCIES HAVE BECOME APPARENT, I THINK. My flist is probably all 'who is this stranger bitch' rn, lol~

Once when I was 12 I dressed up as a Native American for Halloween.

D: D: D:

I totally forgot about it for the longest time, but looking back... holy shit. I'm kind of ashamed of my 12-year-old self, because that racist shit just isn't cool, for a multitude of reasons. I mentioned this to my sister today, and she's like BUT WHY? I DON'T THINK THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT.

I D:'d, and then we got into an argument that ended nowhere good. Somehow the concept of blackface was brought up and both of my sisters AND my mom said they didn't know what blackface was and they didn't see the problem with (a white person) dressing up as a black political figure for halloween (for example, Obama). They asked if it was okay to dress up as other presidents (like George Bush), and when I said it was fine they said I was the racist one. RIGHT. Because it's not like blackface is SERIOUS BUSINESS or everything, people are so OVERSENSITIVE these days.

Then they said if it was okay to dress up as a police officer for Halloween, it was okay to dress up as a Native American. BECAUSE THEY'RE THE SAME THING, OBVS.

I'm so angry right, now idekjskla; jagdsfefdjkdf dsa RAGE RAGE RAGE

Fuuuuuuck.

I really want a Rihanna icon from Eminem's 'Love the Way You Lie' video, because she looks amaaaaaaaaaaaazing in it. Red hair is definitely her thing. ♥_♥

But I hate Eminem (CREEPY BIGOTED DOUCHEBAG) and I also hated the music video in question, which was badly done and I could write an essay on how problematic it was, but I'll spare you the details. I don't want to look like I support the video or think it's awesome or anything. :( SIGH. Talk about first-world problems.

On another note, on lj spotlight I keep reading "Russian-based photography" as "Russian-based pornography." Every single time, and then I giggle like an immature 12 yr old boy who just told a 'UR MOM' joke. (Interesting sidenote! I love your mom jokes. I make them ALL THE TIME. Don't judge me. :'( )

My Spanish-speaking, non-American mother thinks it's "ridiculous" that when calling customer services you have to press 1 for English, because English is the LANGUAGE OF AMERICA and should be considered so. >:[

I was just like... what? WAT? I mean, she speaks English too, and I know she's v.v. conservative, but. idk, I really didn't expect her to be with the unreasonable 'OMGZ BITCH I WON'T PRESS ONE' crowd. O_o
cornhobble: (.Brittany - You look terrible. I look aw)
Wow, I haven't posted in what feels like aaaaaaaages.

So I (attempted) to dye my hair purple. IT WAS A DISASTUH. Like, I was trying to dye streaks, not the whole thing, but the purple didn't take and now I have streaks of grayish-blonde in my hair. ;_; It's kind of lulzy, I must admit. I'm going to try again, which is possibly a really bad idea but I will prevail~~

veganism

So remember when I was vegan for, like, 5 months? Needless to say it didn't take. What can I say, cheese is my kryptonite.

I think I'm going to try again. I know, I know, but veganism makes sense (for me) on several levels. It's just the next step after vegetarianism, kinda. The next, immensely more difficult step, devoid of cheese and milk chocolate and ice cream without soybeans. ;_;

In any case, I figure if I post about this decision ~in writing~ I'll be more likely to stick with it. What do you mean, it didn't work last time? GO AWAY AND TAKE YOUR LOGIC WITH YOU >:(

So I watched True Blood 3.01 last night, and... I HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS~~

UGH I AM SUCH A FUCKING ASSHOLE.

I was supposed to help someone out with a presentation, but I forgot about it and instead of, you know, behaving like a reasonable adult and contacting the person in question I skipped the event. Later I just told him that my computer was messed up and I'd lost info. EVEN MY LIES ARE SHIT :(

He said it was fine and that I next time I should just give him a heads up. Then he said that other people had signed up, too, but they were pretty flaky and he hadn't expected then to actually show. He hadn't been worried about it because he'd figured that I would come through, because I've always been a reliable person.*

...

SUCH. A. MOTHERFUCKING. ASSHOLE. ._. THE GUILT, IT BURNS.

*I don't know why people think this, I am so far away from reliable it's depressing. Apparently I give a good first impression? Why do I suck so much. :(
