The male equivalent of “what, this old thing?”
I used to not address men as anything at work, not even their names, I just looked them in the face and talked to them. It got back to me that some asked my boss why I didn’t address them by name (which includes a fancy title)?
I can’t win.
So dude, I’m just calling your sir in the same way I call people “hon”. Except you’re a stranger and *socially* superior to me so I call you sir. It’s not some compliment. It speaks to your position over me. Let’s not pretend the difference isn’t there with an “awwww shucks but no thanks”…You’re the master, the mister, the sire, the SIR here, as patriarchy has ensured, so let’s be honest about it. Don’t worry: if feminists have anything to say about it, unearned titles will disappear.
Still trying to train myself out of shaking hands with men. What? As if we were on the same social level, as if I can agree to pretend with you that the elephant in the room is not there and that makes it our totally amicable interaction sensible? It’s a joke.
Literally what the fuck are you going on about
Anonymous asked: Who is Victoria and what happened?
Victoria is my girlfriend, and she’s been having a hard time lately. She has a tendency to withdraw from everyone and push everyone away when she’s having a rough time. I thought the same thing was happening again, but it didn’t :)
