Wow how did I not know Fitz and the Tantrums before?? also Noelle Scaggs voice is literally amazing.
if anyone has suggestions on how to explain to a friend in a polite enough way how not to act in sexist ways towards me.. they would be gladly appreciated.
I always get somewhat shocked when I get to know a new guy friend who then goes to ridiculous lengths to open doors for me, pay for me, walk me ALL the way home and I can’t think of a response to get them to stop that’s not bitchy and aggressive, so I usually just hesitatingly accept.
It really does bother me though, when someone my exact same age insists on paying for every meal (even when we’re eating in a group!), accompanying me home to my non-sketchy part of town in the safest city in Europe, and quoting such gems as “let me just get her (me) home and I’ll join you guys later.”
I don’t need to be “gotten home.” The amount of long walks alone in the dark in BERLIN I did last fall… (in BERLIN!). I am an independent 20 year old fucking woman, goddamn it.
Vienna struggles: going on a date with a guy that turns into Deutsch Übung after he realizes I speak German. I am bad enough flirting with people in English..trying to think of ways to be clever and grammatically correct gleichzeitig is not going to happen.
I’M STILL NOT OVER THE FACT THAT A CYBERMAN HEAD WAS GIVEN MORE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT THAN CLARA HAS EVER HAD
