Get Yo Drank, Girl

To add to the debate of what is more feminist-y.

Someone bought me a drink at the bar for my first time a week ago. I mean like the kind you see in movies. Not a guy who was talking to me, but one where the bartender said, “There’s a gentlemen over there who wants to pay for your next drink.”

I peek around to the corner of the bar and got a wave from a gray-haired man with an open polo and sunglasses hanging from the collar. I looked at the bartender and said, “What does this mean?”

Why do movies make it seem like they send over cocktails or martinis? All I had was, “Do you accept this drink?”

Like fack yeah it’s free. So he left an empty shot glass upside down in front of me. My dumbass tried to buy a shot until, luckily, my friend coerced me into getting a drink. I, unashamedly, did not speak to that old man for the rest of the night. The truth is: I love this sh*t about being a woman. I love when dumb men really think I’m careless enough to take their drink and go back with them. And I know there are women who scoff at me and with a great scene deny such drinks and such men, but I say they are wasting a great moment. I used to be one of those women. I had to prove through words and actions that I am the superior gender and would never let a man buy me a drink.

But I’m not.

I love free shit. Alcohol is expensive and there’s nothing more exciting to me than men who are stupid enough to waste upwards of 10 dollars on my vodka-cran. Then they feel proud of my accepting it as I sashay to the opposite side of the room for an even cuter guy to dance with. It’s arguably 10x bitchier than what I could do in telling them to shove the 10 dollars up their ass, but I would also argue that everyone’s having a good time.

At the end of the day this is a short article on my opinion and probably doesn’t matter in the least bit. This is a thank you to all of the women who turn down a man’s drink so that they come to my side of the bar with it in the hopes of a good night, and for allowing me to crush that hope drunker than when I walked in.


I swear I’m not an alcoholic

The importance of Memorial Day

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.
