  8. the fact that the media is calling what he did “flirting” should tell you a lot about how women are treated in society. this is how men “flirt” with us. “hey can i fuck u? do you have a bf? i mean, am i stepping on another man’s toes here? i wouldn’t want to do that. i respect men. you? not so much. you i just need to know one thing from. can i fuck you? i won’t stop asking you until i can fuck you so can i fuck you?”

    A point missed in this “dialogue” the “media” is having - is that in the eyes of the law, we as a society have concluded that minors are generally economically, socially, and legally unequal to adults. By making it illegal for an adult to have sex with a minor, statutory rape laws aim to give the minor some protection against adults in a position of power over the youth. So, the whole point of whether or not he did or didn’t *actually* have sex, or whether his actions were “flirting” is neither here nor there - statutory rape law justifications should still be taken into consideration which is that we as a society want to protect (not defend) against predatory behaviours - regardless of who the predator is. In fact, I dare say, ESPECIALLY BECAUSE of the the predator is. 

  9. Good Morning ...

    • Colleague:
      Morning Taiss!

    • Me:
      morning indeed *sigh*

    • Colleague:
      what's the matter, aren't you living the dream!?

    • Me:
      oh, I definitely am ...

    • Colleague:
      ...

    • Me:
      just to be clear, we're both referring to the one where you have an exam in twenty minutes for a class you weren't enrolled in and you can't escape, right?

    • Colleague:
      *rapidly steps away*


  10. The difference ...

    • Scene:
      discussing a fellow train passenger who told her about her belief is karma, reincarnation and why it made sense. We then discussed how one religion's views were another's make believe.

    • Me:
      So ... what is the difference between a religious dogma and a fairy tale?

    • Her:
      The critical mass of belief.
