To All Survivors:
You are fucking incredible. You are still here. And you’re a fucking warrior for that.
If you don’t make it to lecture today, that is okay. This is one of the biggest days of the year for you. Do whatever the fuck you need to do to get ready.
Can’t Handle Asking For Consent?
Not Ready To Have Sex
(I don’t think it is, but) is that too long for a poster? Can anyone think of better phrasing?
Other options aka compilation from photos of awesome SlutWalk signs I’ve seen:

Yes I want a stuffed puppy. Determined. Like this one. OMFG. Ahem anyway…
today: shower. breakfast. clean room. make TBTN sign. pack bag/plan for weird day. early lunch. Gender & Sexuality in Antiquity MAYBE but MAYBE NOT since today is nuts. snack. contact improv. snack/hang out with Friend L. group. dash home: super-fast shower/get dressed, dinner-while walking. TAKE BACK THE NIGHT with roomies. listen @ rally. scream and hold up sign and march. listen to survivors share their stories. home: something soothing (movie?) to get my mind in a better place before going to sleep.
today is going to be intense.
It is nearly 3 pm. At 4:30 I have to leave, not learn, the house and lead a discussion section. I have been lying around reblogging funny things and weeping since lunch. (I also made a cookie cake.) Between 3 and 4:15 I will
email Ms.S re: job stuff
send in job app #3
write out a plan for section
* clean my room
drink a lot of water to make this huge headache go away
have a snack? really?!
When I get back this evening I will have dinner (ON MY OWN OH CHRIST), Skype with my boyfriend, do my Gender & Sexuality in Antiquity homework, and make my Take Back the Night sign. Any suggestions?
