"A good man's guide to catcalling"

FINALLY, someone gets it!

http://goodmenproject.com/ethics-values/good-man-catcall-street-harassment-guys-guide/

Now, I don't consider myself a feminist at all. I like it when guys hold open doors for me, take care of me, and act chivalrous towards women in general. I also find the fact that the above link is called the "Good Men Project" a bit disturbing. But I can most certainly agree that shouting to a girl in the middle of the street telling her how nice her ass is, is most definitely not the way to her heart.

When you do that, you're pretty much saying, "hi, I only see you as a piece of meat, so I am going to treat you as such."

Not cool.

I've spent a good majority of my teenage years/young adult life getting these sort of cat-calls. And let me tell you now, it is most certainly not due to the way I dress. I've had this happen to me in the summer, fall, winter, and spring. Whether I am dressed head to toe, or in a pair of short shorts and a tank top, I will be the recipient of this kind of unwanted attention. I don't ask for it, and I most certainly don't want it. Sometimes it's nothing more than a whoop or a holler, a car honk, or a whistle. But sometimes it's something more degrading like "I WANT TO SUCK YOUR P*SSY."

Honestly, I could go on and on about how inappropriate is kind of behavior is to women and the underlying issues that arise with it, but I think this article sums it up quite nicely. As you can see, there's a very clear distinction between going up to a girl, introducing yourself, looking her in the eye, and telling her that she's beautiful...or telling her that you'd like to f*ck her titties.

Don't do that.

my latest obsession~

Wow, triple post today! You guys are lucky ;)

I've mentioned earrings like these before in this blog. However, I've been secretly building up a small collection of them since late last year. They're so much fun! They're very unique and I get tons of compliments on them everywhere I go ^^


And I'm still expanding my collection! I've recently ordered two more, coming from Indonesia. So I'm probably going to have to wait about 1-2 months before they get here XD but it's worth the wait! I get these all from etsy, from various sellers:

Leginayba (SALE OMG)

what I wore 11

I wasn't going to do another one of these tonight, but I did anyway ^^ 
This poncho was pretty much the best thing I bought in Peru. It's so cute! And it surprisingly does a really good job at keeping me warm, especially through those nights when we were in hotels with no heater ;_; The best part is, when you sit down, it drapes over your knees, so it looks like you have a blanket on :D 


poncho: purchased in Peru
shorts: DEB
boots: Vince Camuto outlet store
hoodie underneath: Gilly Hicks



what I wore 1o

It's been a while since I've done one of these!

I'd love to bring back my old goth girl style to my wardrobe. But I've got to figure out how to do that without looking like a fifteen year old. @_@

New art blog on tumblr

I've decided to create a new blog that will be completely dedicated to my artwork. I'll still be using this one, but only for blogging about the usual y'know, fashion, undies, stuff like that :)

So if you're interested in seeing more work in progresses, speedpaints, doodles, etc., feel free to follow me: http://meganmissfit.tumblr.com/
