Let's do point by point, that seems to work well.
And here's an awesome necklace I want!

  1. Duck Dynasty and all social equality movements. What the fuck. I feel like I'm drowning, like we're fighting this uphill battle and making no progress. I've seen a couple people on my FB feed like some of the posts in support of Phil. And a couple others calling for civil discourse from both sides, all you angry libruls getting your panties in a bunch, amirite? Then I fell down the slippery slope of comment reading, never good. Then I tried to look up some heartening feminist stuff, but of course it's threaded with so much anti-feminist bullshit. Even my google search for 'feminist cat' (for the necklace!) came up with some depressing shit. I have someone in my FB feed who actually posted one of those "I don't need feminism because" pictures. I'm on my way to delete her how, I'm sick of this shit.
  2. We just had a friend come stay with us for a few days. Our first non relative visitor, and I was expecting it to be fun. He was the best man at our wedding, my husband has known him for 20 years and I've known him for over 10. Turns out his inability to communicate with his non sexual wife coupled with his porn addiction has turned him into a misogynist ass. He related a story about an argument with his wife where he said something along the lines of "spandex shouldn't come in 3x" - his wife gave him what for, I told him she's right and the world isn't made for his pleasure. He told sexist and homophobic jokes, then said he had bad delivery when I didn't laugh. I told him I wouldn't find those jokes funny no matter who told them or how. He treats me simultaneously like a bro and a little girl. I know full well about my husband's sexual past, I really like some of his exes, but I don't need to reminisce about specific events. I also don't need to be guided by the small of my back or talked down to. My husband has made serious strides in awareness and action in the 15 years I've known him, I'm disappointed that our friend has regressed so much. Oh! He also flat out asked to have sex when my husband was at work and the kids were asleep! When I said no, he tried to play it off as a joke and said he wouldn't know how to react if anyone ever said yes. As though he's doing this sort of thing all the time?
  3. (Selfish and inane, avert your eyes!) My hair is driving me up the fucking wall and I want to get a haircut, but I spent all our money on presents because Build A Bear brought back Pinky Pie so I had to get her and Fluttershy for my 8yo brony. He doesn't know they brought back Pinky Pie though, so I can wait another month to get a haircut because the look on his face will be worth it.
