The magic is in the make up.
the past was fucked up
I know a lot of bloggers that could use one of them baby cages
Dude, you don’t want a baby cage? I want a babycage. With a duvet and my laptop. Hey Santa from the past—time warp me a babycage?
I experience this “gaslighting” ALL the time, from most of the men in my life. I’m so grateful for this article, because I’ve never been one to just brush off rudeness, I stand up for myself. And by doing so, I get told that I’m overreacting, they were “joking”, or I’m crazy. And I’m tired of having to explain to them that being rude to someone is not the same thing as joking- you can’t be mean, hurt someone’s feelings, and then sugar coat it by calling it a joke. That’s not how people’s feeling work. I am not overreacting by demanding respect. I am not crazy, and I won’t tolerate being told I am, either- that’s abuse. To use my gender against me “women are crazy”, or “you must be on your period”, simply because you can’t use those big balls you glorify so much to do something so out of your league as to apologise.
To anyone, of any gender who does this- Learn to take responsibility for the things you do and say to people. To try and turn your actions around on somebody, and try to make them responsible for what YOU said, making yourself the victim, is pretty redundant
