It's that time of the "week" where I ask you to read things and vote for me. :D
LJ Idol vote is here: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/966583.html
My entry, eeyore_grrl, is here: http://eeyore-grrl.livejournal.com/639183.html
The topic was a Wayne Gretsky quote, "I don't skate to where the puck is. I skate to where the puck is going to be."
A few words from clauderainsrm: It’s Week 4 of LJ Idol, and we aren’t going to where the season is - we are going to where we want it to be! Wayne Gretzy may have supplied the quote, but our talented group of writers took it from there! Before we get to the action, there were a some people…

It's that time of my life where I ask you to go read a bunch of stuff and, hopefully, vote for me in LJ Idol Season 10. I'm eeyore_grrl and I'm in the first poll.

I tried to sleep, but my body hurts. Then my brain racing with quotes from the news. Not quotes, but quotes and instances of sexual aggression. Of gropes and the one time a guy I was dating threw me across the hotel room.

Those aren't the things that are going through my head the most though. Not the things that are cycling over and over. The things cycling are the words that take me down. Me and my sisters and mothers and daughters. The words I heard as a small girl that taught me that I wasn't safe.

Of the boys in 2nd grade walking by our classmate's desk and kissing her on the cheek, even when she said that she didn't like it and told them to stop.

Of overhearing my mother's boyfriend tell his friend that she told him that if she ever caught him with me she'd cut his dick off.
Of sitting uncomfortably at my desk in homeroom on the first day of tenth grade, in a new school, while two or three male classmates had a loud conversation about whether they could see my underwear or not. They asked blatant questions about sexual things and went out of their way to make me uncomfortable. To make me know that I wasn't safe.

And I'm one of the lucky women I know; I was never raped.
