I'd fucking love to stay at home and do fuck all. I haven't found a job that fulfils me, I've just been working to support myself. If I won the lottery maybe I'd find a volunteer position I could do part time and live off my money but that's a pipe dream. Let's be honest a lot of people would love to not work and just… » 1/29/15 5:58pm Yesterday 5:58pm

That's not harassment fella, you've been disagreed with and someone has insulted you. It's harassment when people repeatedly insult you (like more than one person more than once) or threaten to kill you or rape you or your family or you know actually do more than tell you you are not really understanding the point… » 1/29/15 5:30pm Yesterday 5:30pm

The corner of my mum's road (where I grew up) is where Mary Wollstonecraft went to chapel and where she opened her ground breaking school for girls. There is an awesome piece of graffiti of her on the side of the Unitarian Chapel (which they fucking love) and a campaign to get a statue of her in the Green there (… » 1/29/15 4:25pm Yesterday 4:25pm

The issue for me is "what if we did an all male version of X female show" is that there are already male versions of pretty much all female shows, one all female show sticks out in the crowd so these men just don't notice the thousands of shows full of men. » 1/29/15 7:48am Yesterday 7:48am

I'm a grown ass woman and I cry maybe 6 times a year. Like really proper crying.Last time was because my downstairs neighbour shouted at me by intercom after I had a bath and he didn't like the buzzing of my fan. Valid reason. I have cried because my father died, even then I cried every day for like 2 weeks then it… » 1/26/15 7:50pm Monday 7:50pm

I need a solid 10 hours to function. I once stapled my own thumb during a conversation where I wasn't really paying attention to what I was fiddling with so spilling coke is an improvement. I also got all the way to work on Thursday with my fly down. » 1/26/15 1:21pm Monday 1:21pm

Oh look another shitty story about a British subject where the writer thinks they are amusingly using "British" words but comes across as a xenophobic arsehole. Gawker is bad enough about pretending the rest of the world doesn't exist or being confused about stories that come from anywhere else but this sort of stuff… » 1/26/15 11:44am Monday 11:44am

There is a young adult book series by Jean Ure called Plague 99, After the Plague and Watchers of the Shrine. In the first there is a pandemic then the second two books are set 100 years later, in them there is a community set up by a yuong woman who was harassed and possibly raped following the plague. In this… » 1/26/15 11:28am Monday 11:28am

Honestly, I'd double down. This is total bullshit. Just say: "look, I don't think you appreciate that your lack of ability to "empathise" with what I've said is not really my problem. Maybe you need to look at how you are talking to people; expecting them to change their tone to make you more comfortable is something… » 1/26/15 11:03am Monday 11:03am
