My name is Victoria. I’m a twenty five year old college student. I model and run a fashion blog. I live in Connecticut, where I’m dating a great guy and play kitty-mommy to two tuxedo kittens. This is my tumblr about my search for a kidney transplant and organ donation.
Although a blogger…
One of my frilly friends, looking for some help.
An amazing story out of Bucharest—a 13 year old girl has taken it upon herself to take in stray dogs off the streets, get them vetted, and use Facebook to adopt them out to families all over Europe. The money for the vaccinations, micro-chipping and international passports for the dogs is coming out of her own family’s money. She hopes one day to be a doctor, and until then she wants to save as many dogs as she can.
I honestly cannot fathom why, when two guys see a girl walking alone on a deserted street in the dark, they automatically think “yeah, let’s whistle at her.” She’s by herself, there are TWO of you, both of you are obviously stronger than her, it’s dark out, and she’s spent her whole life being told by her father, her mother, her teachers, pretty much everyone, that women get raped when they’re walking alone at night on darkened streets. What reaction other than paralyzing FEAR could they possibly expect out of her? Even if you’re going to protest “The whistle was a compliment! Why are women always afraid that every guy is a rapist?” I just don’t get how you can overlook the fact that women are taught to be wary in the dark, by themselves. Even I wouldn’t go up to a child by themselves and offer them candy. They’re taught that people who do that are CREEPY and are probably trying to HURT THEM. I wouldn’t blame them for thinking I was creepy if I did it. So why do men expect any response other than FEAR when they whistle at a woman who is alone on a dark street?
