Somnambulism

1- I hate it when people drastically change a social situation, and then turn around and get upset when they learn that things are different. It's like they want to change their behavior completely without anyone acting differently.

2- I hate it when my friends are insensitive to a mutual friend of ours. I usually don't notice when people aren't there for me; I don't expect them to be. But when people purposely ignore their friend's feelings, I get pissed off.

3- I hate how it's somehow okay to mock people who are overweight. I hate all the victim blaming that comes with it. I hate that some obese people are to ashamed to even complain about all the horrible things people say about them, because they internalize this "it's my fault" attitude.

4- I hate that I feel the need to explain that I am not overweight, and never have been.

5- I hate gender assumptions. I hate it when people tell me I won't understand something because of my gender. I concede that it might be true, but why not try?

6- I hate people who excuse bad behavior with demographics. "It's okay that she's moody and distant; she's a teenager." or "Don't worry about the teasing; boys will be boys." I mean, Christ, would it kill you to acknowledge that people are individuals? Do we always have to attribute their behavior to their age and sex?

7- I hate listening to straight girls whine about how there aren't any good guys out there. Or worse yet, how hard it is to meet good guys.

8- I hate re-fried beans. Also, tofurky. And black olives. Black olives are pretty nasty.

Like most other Americans, I get tired of pretending to be happy all the time. When this happens, I stay up late and write extremely negative journals that (hopefully) will never be attributed to me.

3- I understand that it

3- I understand that it sometimes isn't anyone's fault that they're overweight. My aunt is obese, but if she walks too much, her feet swell up and bleed. Not fair.

5- I don't understand what you mean here. Give an example.

6- I'd rather my parents think it's okay that I'm distant because of my age. I don't want to be confronted about it. I hate that.

7- That is indeed horrible. At least they get to talk about it. I've thought a lot of times about how much easier it would be if I were straight.

8- I love refried beans so much.

I am happy most of the time.

5) "You would never

5) "You would never understand about the kind of treatment women get because you're male"
- Great. Instead of people saying that, they could actually explain... about the kind of treatment women get.

"You're a girl, there's no point in asking you about this maths homework. I'm going to ask some incompetent fool sitting next to you who gets crap grades."
- BITCH I'M AMAZING AT MATHS NOW HEAR ME RAWR
