Hmmm, that all sounds like I'm lucky to be a non A-hOle Man. I'm sorry 😐. You sound really nice and I'm sorry I can't be there to tell these Delta Bravos to leave you alone before you go Wookie on them and go to prison for tearing some Dill holes arms off. Don't get me wrong, I'm a very happily married man (been with my wife for 9 years) I want to be there for you as a big brother type (6' 195lbs) Good luck, sister!

I'm short, have big brown eyes, smile a lot and I cry when I pet new dogs. It seems like it's natural for (mostly) men to immediately give me some type of attention. I get asked for my number, cat-called, flirted with.. No complaints here because there's nothing to complain about with any of this behavior. I think it's all pretty normal for a girl to experience. Even some girls (younger in age, but taller than me) tend to call me "cute" "tiny" and such.
*Men are not pigs.
**I don't have a very strong, commanding personality.
The problems comes with the following (today):
Using my head or shoulder as an arm rest... I want to rip your arm off now, thank you.
Assuming I cannot carry anything heavier than a gallon of milk. Did I ask you for a hand? No? Can a rip that one off?
Hugging me. Suddenly. When did it become OK to randomly hold onto someone 1) you don't know that well 2) who did not invite you to smother them or 3) wants to rip your arms off?
Threatening me when I'm upset. ???? You're going to "hurt" me if you see me looking upset again?!?2rwegjwrgwrglrg
Asking me if I have my period.. then telling me how gross periods are. While making vomit noises. GO F*CK YOURSELF!!!
Telling me it's ok that I don't know a lot about a topic because I'm small, cute and can get away with being stupid. My eyes are up to your chin, so ripping your throat out...
This isn't some crazy-feminist (no issue with feminism) rant. This is just sh*t that happened today that drives me crazy and I feel like it's because I'm a small female. I don't want this type of sh*t to happen. I openly tell people to leave me alone, politely or however I need to say it to get my point across. I don't laugh it off after a certain line has been crossed.
I don't complain so much but I needed to just rant about this a little bit tonight. Too much has gone on recently, with 4 deaths in the family and other problems popping up around every corner. This hasn't been a particularly hard day or anything, but a couple of things happened that made me want to rant a little bit about it.. I went to work, was annoyed, got home, that was that. These aren't the worst things I've had happen to me.. Like I said, I just felt like ranting about them tonight.
It's just one of those days,
edit: this is honestly just a short meaningless rant that i needed to get out before the day was through. don't take offense to anything i've said.
edit: changed the title of my post since it's bothering people.
** my bad mood was mainly because i've had 4 deaths in the family this year, the most recently my grandma a couple of days ago. the way i was expressing myself was by keeping to myself instead of chattering away with everyone like i would normally do at work.

well i'm 21 years old, i get it mainly from the guys around my age, older men don't bother me so much as visit me at work often and make polite small talk, which never bothers me.
i'm just ranting about today, but i know this happens to basically everyone and one point or other based on how they look, if they're male or female, etc hahaha
