I am highly skeptical of this because women are socialized to speak in higher, softer tones to all men in informal circumstances, and is considered ‘loud,’ ‘pushy,’ or even ‘nagging’ if she speaks assertively or with a normal, medium tone. There’s also a racial element to this, too— to be demure and to be high-pitched and quiet is a trait associated with whiteness in women; black women especially are hawked on for “verbal transgressions” and get typecast as the loud/angry black woman if they dare speak at all, even in academia.
this picture has tons of uncomfortable baggage hanging off it that I think needs to get unpacked

While being angry is a valid emotional response:
- Anger is not a free pass to do whatever you want.
- Anger is not an excuse for damaging, or abusive behavior.
- Anger is not protection from repercussions of that behavior.
You are accountable for what you do, even while angry.

Your drafts are as good as my finals…
These bad bits are sort of also the good bits because they were picked for humor— and also the reason why drafts can be ‘bad’ but have good passages is because effectiveness is also in structure and how these are put together.
I’m going to have to rework a lot of transitions and normalize run-ons and a lot of awkward phrasing, and I may even have to macro edit the beginning to make it compliant with the end when I finally get there.
So don’t really worry about how ‘good’ a few passages are phrased. All rough drafts have a lot of gold in them, just most of it looks like a car crash victim that was really attractive before getting their body parts jumbled up and twisted in ways somewhat ineffective for continued homeostasis.
Okay so I’m looking for something cool to use as my text message noise so I’m browsing some Zelda sounds on this really quality website that I highly reccomend for any Legend of Zelda sound effects and on the Skyward Sword one they have all the Groose noises…holy shit they are all so fucking fantastic but this one from when he divebombs Link in midair is by far the best

I’m sure everyone will think you’re more sexually promiscuous with groupies than you are, despite never actually going to your concerts or seeing you or even hearing your music at all.
