If You’re Arguing With Me, Chances Are You’re a Dude

“So, here’s my advice to you, Dudes:

Stop.

Stop telling women they’ve got it wrong* when they speak out about the problems they see in the world. Stop telling us we’re thinking, writing, and saying the wrong things. Stop telling us the things we see as problems aren’t—your belief is not required, and your disbelief doesn’t magically erase an issue from existence. Stop insisting on our time and energy like needy children—if you’ll read the fine print, you’ll find we don’t actually owe you a debate, a conversation, or even a hello. Stop pretending you have any idea what it’s like to be us, and for Petunia’s sake, stop whipping out your “woman-friend-who-agrees-with-me.” ”

Aurora Borealis Crystal Necklace Earring Set

I am seriously addicted to glass and crystal with an aurora borealis finish.  It’s probably my most favorite kind of bead in the universe.
