When will it end?
I need feminism because today I was going to buy this t-shirt from the men’s section of a clothing store. The shop assistant tried to take it from me because “it’s a men’s t-shirt. It isn’t made for female bodies.” I said that I had tried it on and liked it, so I wanted to buy it. A group of nearby middle-aged men then started scoffing, and one said, “you don’t want to buy that shirt anyway. It gives men the wrong impression.” What wrong impression? What? Just let me buy the damn shirt without making me feel like I’m doing something wrong as a woman just because I wear men’s t-shirts. I don’t need or want your comments. (men’s t-shirts are usually cooler than women’s t-shirts anyway.)
TIME’s new cover makes me so mad I could write essays about it, but instead I’m going to keep job hunting since in today’s world a university degree means nothing and therefore like much of my generation, I’m stuck choosing between minimum wage jobs and internships that I can’t afford to accept in an attempt to pay off my tens of thousands of dollars worth of student debt.
I’d be interested in reading this article to see exactly what makes us entitled and lazy. Are we lazy because more of us are completing high school and going to college than ever before? Are we entitled because our standard of living is declining? Do we live with our parents because we’re too slothful to leave or is because our education costs are getting steeper and steeper while we’re getting less and less aid?
Tell us, Time Magazine, about how we’re narcissistic little slugs when we’re faced with an economic crisis that resulted in a lowering of our standard of living, an increase in tuition costs and how when we get out of our very expensive schools, more and more of us are going to end up working minimum wage jobs.
I’m interested in the comment below it “Why they’ll save us all”
Though all thing said above. Yes god damn yes.
