fuck the assumption that if you are female in an otherwise all-male environment, you will be grateful when another female person shows up. i just spent 28 months in an all-male environment and it was a fucking delight. and as far as i can tell, all it took for me to be treated as a true equal was the first time they witnessed me cursing the fuck out of something i was supposed to be working on. precise opposite of an effort. seriously, as long as i'm surrounded by people with roughly the same level of education, everything is good? because there's actually no such thing as a potential conversation subject that's truly exclusive to a single gender or sex? sure, there are things that only one sex experiences, or that only one gender experiences in our particular society, but i'm a firm believer that we should talk about them anyway, because how else are we ever going to get rid of shitty stereotypes. how will things that should be normal everyday subjects ever stop feeling uncomfortable if everyone just keeps on avoiding them. certainly not by crying about ~*misogyny*~ on the internet.

tl;dr i feel very sorry for everyone who may end up hoping for ~*female solidarity*~ from me at any point in the future, cause they're not going to get it, and it's very possible that i will begin to actively avoid them. stop acting like it's a great challenge to interact with other human beings.
