my foot hurts, so i'm blogging.

Well, as you know. I effed up my foot about two weeks ago. I'm amazed it's been that long and it's literally still hurting. I'm honestly broke, so I have to wait until after I get paid next to go for my follow up appointment. Broke college kid probs. :/

I was super worried that I would have to end up getting cortisone injections in my foot. But, I consulted Dr. Google, and she said that usually doctors wont do that for my type of injury. I guess that's good, but to be quite honest, I'm not even sure which tendon I messed up. BLAH.

In other news, I'm really digging the #yesallwomen on Twitter! I've been getting lots of fave's and retweets from women and men around the world! It's not a secret I'm a feminist. I'm not sure why people view that as a bad thing, or something to hide. Being a feminist means I believe in equal rights for BOTH genders. Trust me, not a man hater over here! I'm kinda shocked I haven't gotten a negative reply on anything I've had to say. I guess it's story time about one of my #yesallwomen tweets.

When I was a little bit younger, probably around 13,14ish. Hanging out in the front yard or walking to the local park was the fun thing to do! However, it was not fun being catcalled from random men in cars. Uh, hello? I'm BARELY a teenager. It's NOT okay for someone to lean out of the window and say "What up sexy" or "Looking good babe!" to anyone! This led to me being scared to walk anywhere by my self. I was scared that I would be abducted and raped if I wasn't with someone else. My parents would drive my friends home who lived down the street, which mind you I grew up in a pretty suburban area. This is rape culture. The fact I've always been told that I need to be walking in a group, instead of walking somewhere by my self. The fact I cant go for a jog (Okay, not like I can run on my foot currently, but you get the point) in my current neighborhood without my roommates and boyfriend being worried sick about me. I think all women can relate to this. 

To be honest, I kind of suck at writing feminist posts, but I think everyone gets the point that I'm trying to put across. I just want to live in a world where women can feel safe to go somewhere by themselves, and be able to tell a man no with out being called a crazy bitch. Is that too much to ask for?
