Watch Your Step After Dark

If you're in the Boston area, breathing and have a vagina you've probably been told this news story by concerned friends and family who keep up on the news. Yes..another assault has occurred along the Esplanade in the wee hours of the morning.

I'm just taking the time to remind all you ladies to not walk alone at night if it's not necessary...Oh wait, you already knew that? Duhhh!! Most females know it's dangerous to walk alone at night. It's just not fair that having a vagina makes you handicap and incapable of making it home safely.

Everytime I leave my friend's house, a bar etc. and it's late and I'm alone..hell yeah I'm scared of what's lurking in the dark. But I've still walked home and I'm thankful every time I make it safely to my front door.

This whole violence against women/rape culture that we live in is pathetic. No wonder men have more money than women it's because women have spend all their money on cabs---well ya know what I'm saying.

I wish we all lived in a world where things like this didn't happen..but we don't. So our best defense if we must walk at night, be proactive about it.
-Have your keys (or another sharp, painful object) and cell in hand (with local police set on one of your speed dials)
-get pepper spray
-walk the long way, if it's more lit and populated
-fuck it, walk in the street, so people can't snatch you from the sidewalk
-don't wear your hair in a long ponytail or braid (easier target-can be grabbed)

to all you fellow nightly walking women..be safe and stay strong

haha whale tale

According to a SHEunlimited interview; whale tails are a fashion don't on the work front.

I'm going to have to agree with this one...all you ladies out there don't get your panties in a bunch and be caught with a whale tail...that's not hot..haha maybe that's why Lindsay and Brit don't wear panties..to avoid the whale tail!

Thank you Akon for taking the blame and going out there and talking about what happened. It wasn't the best situation ever, but I'm glad Akon stepped up and took responsibility for his actions. Although when I first saw that clip of Akon savagely humping that girl it disgusted me..and well still does. I appreciate him coming clean about it and talking about it..and well I do enjoy the song--I just hope other people that are jammin’ to it get the message behind it.

rock4rights :: stop violence against women

fair trial? I think not

Okay so in an assault trail how the hell do you take away the constitutional first amendment right of freedom of speech??!?!?! In this particular situation the defendant's (Pamir Safi, an Army reservist)defense attorney (Clarence Mock) argued to have the words "rape," "victim," "assault," and “sexual assault kit” from the testimony throughout the trail.
I just don't get it. How do you not allow certain words (especially those) to not be used in court? I'm just confused, and pissed off.

It’s hard enough, embarrassing enough, and emotional to be put on trial as a victim of rape..and then on top of the judge isn't going to allow you to identify yourself as a victim..what is going on in the world? I feel bad for this woman...it doesn't matter if she was drunk..drunk women don't say "hey I would like to be taken advantage of now". This world is just ridiculous.

It is not the judge's right to out-law certain words, it's the jury's choice to decide if Tory Bowen was raped, assaulted, and a victim.

I can only imagine what Bowen is feeling right now..or should I say for the last three years because this incident occurred in 2004. I would be a wreck...so yeah I think outlawing the first amendment is bullshit...come on this is suppose to be America people!

Minge is the new Cunt?!

Okay so I just discovered..or was rather was introduced to the word minge. It's another vulgar term for vagina..However just as I have learned to embraced such vulgar terms to call a woman and their reproductive whatnots (CUNT and BITCH)..I am now going to continue on and welcome the word minge into my vocab..and plus it's way more fun to say than cunt...haha

Thornton's supports the V squad

So after work I was partaking in a little Friday night fun with some coworkers at Thornton's Fenway Grille. When it came time to break the seal I was amazed at what I found in the ladies’ room...free feminine products! It’s was such a surprise…lotion, hairspray, tampons and pads oh my! Every ladies room should have these things on hand for their patrons. It’s the little things in life ya know..well I just thought it was fabulous..of course the sink was clogged but I suppose you can only ask for so much in this life..haha..thank you Thornton’s for makin a girls life a little bit easier.
