Hi. Alex, 15 and probably the most social awkward person to meet. Call the Midwife, Downton Abbey, Doctor Who, and who knows what else!

In San Francisco last year, a man stabbed a woman in the face and arm after she didn’t respond positively to his sexually harassing her on the street.

In Bradenton, Fla., a man shot a high school senior to death after she and her friends refused to perform oral sex at his request.

In Chicago, a scared 15-year-old was hit by a car and died after she tried escaping from harassers on a bus.

Again, in Chicago, a man grabbed a 19-year-old walking on a public thoroughfare, pulled her onto a gangway and assaulted her.

In Savannah, Georgia, a woman was walking alone at night and three men approached her. She ignored them, but they pushed her to the ground and sexually assaulted her.

In Manhattan, a 29-year-old pregnant woman was killed when men catcalling from a van drove onto the sidewalk and hit her and her friend.

Last week, a runner in California — a woman — was stopped and asked, by a strange man in a car, if she wanted a ride. When she declined he ran her over twice.

FUCK YOU if you think that street harassment is a “compliment” or “no big deal” or that it’s “irrational” of us to be afraid because “what’s actually gonna happen.” Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you some more.

wow THIS THO

Someday, I hope to actually laugh at these comics.

but seriously fuck people who think our generation had everything handed to us. we may not be first generation college students, but we’re paying double/triple what you paid for an education of more questionable quality. i’m not saying we don’t have it better, but we’re not as lazy as you think.

plus, a college education doesn’t mean what it used to. I know people who have degrees who are still working in retail because there are too many people who are qualified for the job they want.

Disclaimer: I think sara-wrote-this actually wrote the canon-true version of this, but since I can’t leave well enough alone and had it in the works for a while, here’s a lesser version. To be followed by 2 additional parts.

This is such an interesting part of the narrative arc to explore because it provides so much potential to illuminate the relationship between Sister Bernadette & Sister Julienne. As a writer you seem to get deep within the thoughts of the characters so I very much looking forward to reading how Sister Julienne will react to news of who Sister Bernadette’s ‘young man’ is.
