Girls Who Don’t Like Other Girls aka. Aren’t We Getting Too Old For This?

The girl who doesn’t like other girls. Sometimes diplomatically labelled ‘a guy’s girl.’

All girls are mean to each other, not just this specific breed. This is an unfortunate truth, yet hardly surprising considering how often we are exposed to conflict between women or girls in the media. It almost seems to be an obvious fact in our society that an inherent rift exists between females yet this effect is a complete social construction. Thanks a lot, The Bachelor, now women everywhere hate each other.

Okay, I realize it’s not quite that simple.

unapologetically-black:

Women insult and shame other women in order to gain the approval of men. They want the ‘good girl’ stamp. They feel validated by it. Their self worth rides on outdated and oppressive ideas of womanhood and femininity.

Also, many of them (often subconsciously) envy the freedom of the ‘bad girl’ or the ‘slut.’ She does things they want to but would never do. She represents a part of themselves that they suppress.

Subi has a bit of a rant about girl hate, and how deeply entrenched this awful way of thinking is.

PREACH!

END GIRL HATE

(via weavegirlhate)

“It’s a basic divide and conquer thing isn’t it? Like, if we keep the women fighting within each other then they’re never gonna actually see that it was society that was shitting on them in the first place. This is why we need more girl love, we need more solidarity, and we need sisterhood.”

This is a warning. I’m doing research on girl hate and solidarity, and there’s gonna be a flood of posts coming up. I’m tagging them on “girl hate”, so block the tag if you feel like it.

This is a great movie.

What I want to say EVERY SINGLE TIME. 

Baristas are paid minimum wage to follow their company’s policies. That includes using whatever terms their company decides on for branding purposes. If you want a frappuccino instead of a frappe, a large instead of a venti, or whatever other thing you wanna call your drink, that’s fine. Your barista? They are paid shitty wages and work shitty hours and have to deal with hundreds of people telling them medium instead of grande, or large instead of venti (which refers to the fact that it is, actually, 20 oz of liquid, meaning you’re being a jackass for no reason).

Your barista isn’t stupid. They know what a fucking ‘large’ is and they know their store’s branding and slang sounds dumb to a lot of people. So how about, instead of being an asshole to a minimum wage worker, you consider why you keep buying $6 coffees instead of making that shit at home.

I’ll say that one more time.

Your barista is not stupid.

They know what a large is, what a medium is, and what a small is.

They also know they can be fired for not toeing the company line. And they can be fired for not standing there and taking the abuse you’re spewing at them.

They are being paid to not fight back. They are being paid to stand there all day and translate medium to grande and venti and large and regular and all while you bitch about the specific words you “have” to use. They are being paid to be welcoming and friendly and nice to you while you call them stupid.

Bitch, I know baristas with Ph.Ds, okay? Back the fuck off.

bless you

I wholeheartedly agree that being shitty to anyone is terrible, but on the same side they don’t necessarily have to correct you, either. I work at Tim Hortons and will repeat back ” medium double double” if someone says they’d like a “medium coffee 2 cream, 2 sugar”, so they know why I mark their lid “DD”, but i don’t care what you call it. As long as we both know what you’re talking about, there’s no need for either of us to correct the other. 

You realize that this ‘but’ commentary amounts to ‘The coffee place I personally worked at didn’t require this of us, and therefor no coffee place ever requires this of their employees’ on a thread where MANY people have explained at length that the coffee places they worked at did in fact require them to translate a customer’s order into the location’s specific jargon for a variety of reasons, right?

That basically you’re saying ‘my experience is clearly absolute truth, disregard what these other people are saying’?

Also that YOU DID EXACTLY WHAT THE EMPLOYEE IN THE GIFSET DID, BECAUSE IT WAS YOUR JOB TO DO SO? YOU CORRECTED THE CUSTOMER IN THE SAME WAY THAT SHE CORRECTED THE CUSTOMER, IF WE’RE USING THE WORD ‘CORRECTED’ TO MEAN ‘TRANSLATED ALOUD INTO STORE JARGON’.
