This guy was leaning really close to me this morning- which at first was creeping me out, cuz it almost felt aggressive-but then i realised he was just simply standing so close in front of me so i could hear him whisper “i am weird and have no respect for your personal space.” who wants to stand in front of people so close like this at 6AM, on a nearly empty train? And why are men so comfortable making contact with your body in public? It leaves me with no way to communicate my unhappiness through body language! No matter how much I push, or lean into them, they like can’t feel it somehow. Like when their nasty hairy leg is leaning against my not nasty hairy leg on the subway, no matter how much i try to move over so that we are not touching, they always manage to creep over a little further, so that we still touch. This of course leads to my worst nightmare of mutual sweat forming between the two of us, which is like so bad for me emotionally. So bad.
I want men not to touch me. I want men to not want to touch me. I want them to respond to my body like a hot flame.
This is my new favorite blog. Also read her post on “The Mancave”:
Today at work, my coworker who keeps telling me “you need to learn how to laugh” was telling me about his ‘mancave’ that he built in his house. I stopped paying attention halfway through his story (the guy talks like he has 14 marbles in his mouth), but what I gathered was that a man apparently needs his own space (?). I mean i thought they had their own space and it was nicknamed the world but who am i. Anyway- this space should have a large TV with speakers, a computer, a refrigerator for beer and some other weird stuff- and I was just thinking um… don’t you have a living room and a kitchen? Don’t you live in a house with a family you have both chosen and created yourself? It’s more than likely everyone in his house would want their own “cave,” but few are probably rude enough to create some off limits space in their family home. And why so off limits marble man? Are you stacking handmade crystal angels in there?
Why not try and learn how to hang out with your wife and kids for the few hours you are home after work and before you go to sleep? In your other cave AKA your house.
