if you ever feel like a failure, just remember that jack crawford and the fbi arrested a vegan as the main suspect on a cannibal case
Not every guy who compliments you on the street or says something nice to you is trying to get with you. A dude can say hello and wave to some of you women and you’ll mace him and cry street harassment.
like you can have the best intentions in the world but women can still have reasons to not trust you like when I’m walking home at night and someone slows down their car to ask if I’m okay or something. I hope it’s innocent but that doesn’t mean I’m obligated to take that risk
I’m rly over this “NOT ALL MEN” bullshit when 1. it doesn’t matter if it’s all men, statistically, it’s enough of them to validate our concerns. 2. Women are supposed to be responsible for our safety, and we’re expected to somehow magically know which people are good people and which ones are bad. We’re berated for being suspicious of people and also insulted when something bad happens to us because “we should have known”. I don’t know if you’re trying to tell me my shoe is untied or if you’re trying to harass me or if your intentions are even more devious than that.
Leave women the fuck alone, it’s terrifying to be approached by random ass men on the streets.
oh my god yes please preach to these backwards motherfuckers i will not STAND for this shit. nobody is fucking obliged to accept your approach as friendly. Thank your fellow men for that shit, and go berate them instead, since you’re so different.
Look have you ever heard of this thing called ‘Stranger Danger’? I don’t know who the fuck you are. IDK if you’ve devoted your whole life to saving folks from human trafficking and won a Nobel Peace Prize or if you’re an abusive shithead with three DV convictions and are on the sex offender registry. Or an upstanding member of the community who secretly gets women drunk so you can pressure them into sex. Or whatever.
If you say hello to me, there is a statistically significant chance that you are being a fucking creeper. And if I say hello back or smile and youare a creeper, there is an 100% chance I will get blamed for whatever you do to me, because I was not careful and ‘led you on’.
You want to bitch? Fix the shitheads in your own gender that make it unsafe for me to walk down the street and be nice to strangers.
i bet all the howling commandos asked for steve to draw them
it started when one wanted to send his sweetheart a picture of him
some posing in silly poses and others being like, “draw me pretty, cap”
and like bucky never asked but steve would idly draw him while they were camped down by the rain on the front
I’ll bet somewhere in Steve’s papers, there’s a sketch of all the Commandos together, looking solid and heroic, like he remembers them being.
There’s a picture of Dum-Dum posing like a muscle man that Dugan carried with him in his wallet until the day he died, a picture that had made all the Commandos howl with laughter when Steve had first drawn it.
There’s a profile of Gabriel because Steve had really liked the line of his nose and the shape of his jaw, and another sketch of him and Dernier sitting around a table, laughing and drinking, that Steve drew from memory.
There’s a detailed drawing of Falsworth sitting formally in a chair, looking neat and dignified the way he never did when he was in the field.
There’s a couple of sketches of Morita stretched out on the ground, smiling cockily and giving Steve a thumbs-up. (One of the other pictures is of Morita flipping Steve off because it was just Jim.)
(There are also some official Army documents that have a few quick, lovely sketches of Peggy Carter on them, and only Nick Fury and Alexander Pierce have access to them because only they have the clearance.)
