"If we’re destroying our trees and destroying our environment and hurting animals and hurting one another and all that stuff—there’s got to be a very powerful energy to fight that.
I think we need more love in the world.
We need more kindness, more compassion, more joy, more laughter.
I definitely want to contribute to that.”
— Ellen DeGeneres

For inbox spam, I was expecting to be annoyed by this video. But I actually really dig this. Pleasantly surprised. I’ll have to check out more of this band.
Thank you for your kind words anonymous. It means a lot.
Verbal abuse at home
Sexual harassment outside of my house….
I just want to run away to be honest
Fuck this shit
Rape culture doesn’t exist?

The amount of sexual objectification I’ve been put through these past few days has been making me feel physically ill.
There’s this foreign guy at my work who is constantly telling me and everyone around that he’s in love with me. He touches me all the time, and I always tell him to stop. He tells people he’s going to marry me. He doesn’t know a god damn thing about me except that I like to sing, and that I work where he works. He tells me that I’m hot. It feels like he really only views me as a sex object. Last night when my coworkers and I went out, he came up to me and literally said “I wanna fuck you, I’m so horny right now” and he kept touching me and I had to keep pushing him off and telling him that he was making me feel uncomfortable. that fucking crossed the line. I seriously cannot stand one more sexual comment or touch from him. I thought he was my friend before but friends don’t make advances on you after you’ve told them to stop because you’re uncomfortable.
I told my friend//one of the managers and he said he’s going to have a talk with him, and that it was unacceptable. I hope it does stop soon because I can’t work in that environment and if something isn’t done about this situation, I’m going to have to quit. I know that he’s from another country and male dominance is probably strongly emphasized and maybe even encouraged over there…. But that does not make this okay at all. And the comment he made last night shouldn’t be acceptable anywhere. I couldn’t sleep last night because I felt like I was going to puke from how upset I was. I wanted to take a bath at 3 in the morning to make myself feel better and to soak off the situation…idk make myself feel less dirty. But I couldn’t because everyone was sleeping in my house. So I fell asleep totally on edge. I haven’t eaten anything today yet because I still feel sick.
Aside from this situation, the other night my friend and I went to this concert, and the headlining band ended up having to cancel after all the openers played. Because of this, everyone was bummed out and a lot of the crowd was like ‘fuck it…let’s get blackout drunk’. So there was this free dance party next door to the concert venue. My friend went over there, and this guy tried to touch both of us as we walked by him (on our backs, but still he was looking at us like sexual objects and it was disgusting and I didn’t want to be touched). After a few minutes my friend and I decided to call for our ride and leave because the music they were playing was some shitty house remixes. So we went outside and were sitting on the ground in this corner of the bar patio. I joked about how we probably looked homeless. Then this guy comes out and at first he seemed nice and friendly. He was like “are you two okay? Do you need some pizza? A beer? Some money? Haha you guys kind of look homeless” and my friend tried to be like “oh that’s funny we were just talking about how we probably look homeless.” But then he went on to say ” hahaha you should have signs that say ‘will give blowjobs for beer’ ” and that’s when we were like…… -.- are you fucking serious. I absolutely HATE it how sexual objectification increases dramatically when people are drinking. It’s fucked up that this is happening in society.
