I Rated The Most Sexist Comments I've Received In The Past Month And, Folks, Misogyny Is Alive And Real

Misogyny isn't dead, and if you think it is, you're about to be disappointed.

I Rated The Most Sexist Comments I've Received In The Past Month And, Folks, Misogyny Is Alive And Real

I'm not one to talk about personal issues, like the first-hand misogyny I experience as a woman, usually because it makes close family and friends uncomfortable. However, I have recently become exhausted with the number of comments I get, so I decided to rate all the ones I received in the past month to prove that misogyny is alive and real.

1. "God has blessed me today." 10/10

I went on a trip to Louisiana, and although fun, it does require a thick skin if you want to get around the city. Although there are never any "good comments" from catcallers, it still wasn't the grossest thing that has been said to me and it was kind of sweet... I'm glad he felt blessed by my presence. For that reason, this person gets a solid 10/10.

2. "I want to kiss whatever is underneath that mask." -4/10

The purpose of masks is to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Personally, I've liked the ability to sneak around without detection, pretending I'm a ninja on a mission. My favorite about these masks is not having to smile or be told, "You'd look prettier if you'd smile." I was hoping I'd be relieved from misogyny for a while with the mask rules, but just like the pandemic curve, I was wrong.

3. "You'd be cuter if you talked less." -300/10​

This happened after a presentation required for my class, which I ended up getting an A on. You'd think being a Public Relations major at a school with a 1:5 female ratio would prevent this from happening...

4. "F*** you, b****es, just take them!" 2/10

This was said as he threw a bundle of flowers at me and my roommate. It was rude and unnecessary, but at least I got free flowers out of it.

5. *Whistle* 5/10

This is the basic b**** of catcalling. Definitely unwarranted and not very creative, but at least he didn't actually say anything.

6. "Come sit on Papa's lap." -3049/10

No. I don't have enough daddy issues to deal with this.

7. *Rolls window down and blasts "Careless Whisper" from car* 12/10

This one was a little creepy, however, I freaking LOVE "Careless Whisper" with a burning passion.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves.

I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
