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.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.
