I love rush-hour Metro fights. Generally, because I know that even if I'm fighting with some random guy, he can't really do much since the metro is super crowded, which gives me free license to pretty much say and do as I please and not have to worry that death is imminent.

I'm on my way to get on the train at Farragut North, but shit! It's crowded. The group of people I was in was waiting until all the passengers had gotten off the train already, and then started to get on. All of a sudden this woman barrels out of the car and slams into me when I'm halfway into the car. I scream, on instinct, "HOLY FUCKING CHRIST" and push past her and onto the train.

This guy, about thirty or so, screams at me: "YOU NEED TO WAIT UNTIL ALL THE PASSENGERS ARE OFF THE TRAIN BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO TRY TO GET ON," I'm all, "Buh? Who is this guy? What do my train adventures (or misadventures) matter to him?"

I look at him and decide that he's a total asshole who didn't care one way or the other, and just decided to be a dick for fun.

The sarcasm dripped from my voice: "Oh, HAY THERE. In case you didn't notice, sir, the group of people waiting for the train, including myself, waited until we thought no one else was getting off... Oh, and by the way, I don't remember asking you. Thanks."
He immediately countered with "BITCH" - in that kind of "This is supposed to be quiet but I want everyone else around us to hear as well" way.

The only response needed? "Yeah, so I've been told. Doesn't bother me any, so I guess it just sucks for you."
He shut up then, but only because his friend told him to. I could have kept going all the way til Shady Grove, but it's probably just as well that was that.

After he got off the train at Adams-Morgan, the old lady next to me says, "I  actually say this as a compliment - you are kind of a bitch."
Everyone around her laughed.
I was flattered.

I feel like people always decide to get hit by Metro trains when I have to be somewhere. Luckily, I think it was the train before mine that hit her, so I was on my way to the station and was able to get out to go see Regina Spektor. Luce and Erin weren't so lucky though, they had to walk from Metro station. And you know, maybe it sounds like I don't care that a woman got hit, that I'm only concerned with my concert, but yeah. It's pretty much true. What on earth are you doing lying between the tracks

The Vault Review of GW Law says this:

About GW - As far as fun events, every Thursday the Student Bar Assocation sponsors two kegs and snack food in the law school's main lounge from 4-6PM and many students partake. On Thursday nights, the SBA has "Bar Review" each week at a different bar in DC with drinks specials and 1Ls, 2Ls and 3Ls alike are present at these (especially in the beginning of the semester and during warm weather).

Why bother calling me a bitch when you can just shoot me?

An 18 year old girl and her friends rebuffed a catcaller's advances.
Him and the group of men he was with follow them in their car, try to run them off the road, and then shoot one of them.

What the fucking fuck.
This is why I have a hugely pissed off look on my face as I go on my daily travels through DC.
I don't want anyone thinking they have a right to approach me to make "small talk", ask me for my number, or participate in a variety of other asshat like behaviors I've witnessed in the city.

But I mean, I guess they could just shoot me anyway.

Snatched from Fetch Me My Axe:

Cos, right - here's a radical thing - if you get raped, it's the man's fault. A man fucks you without your consent - that's not porn's fault, that's not your top's fault, that's not your skirt's fault, that's not a prostitute's fault. It's the man's fault. Cos he's a scumbag. And some men are scumbags and some men will do that to you and they deserve to have their fucking bollocks cut off. And he can blame your top, your skirt, the porn, his bitch mam, that prostitute or whatever, but the fact is, you've probably walked past a million men wearing your skirt and top and those men who've looked at you and thought, "Wow!" watch porn, have dreadful mothers, live in a society where prostitution actually happens and think that that top you're wearing makes you look like Mz Berlin or Darenzia or Marilyn Monroe or whoever floats your boat. But they aren't raping you. So why did the other fucker?

if ONE MORE hillary clinton supporter throws a fit because NARAL endorsed Obama, seriously, stop.
being the owner of a vagina does not automatically mean you get that endorsement, just like it doesn't automatically make you "the feminist candidate".

and if you would stop and take a minute to realize that your suggestion that the DNC just names Sen. Clinton the nominee anyway, please remember 2000. Were you butthurt that the Supreme Court decided our president instead of the voters? if you were, then shut the fuck up.

Recently, the College Republicans on campus held an "Anti-Feminist Bake Sale".
Recently, I wrote about it on my blog over at Choice USA.
And recently, the anti-choice, anti-feminist masses came out to call me anti-marriage - "you'll be saving some would-be poor bastard from a lifetime of misery", call me "unintelligent", and just otherwise argue that they know more about feminism than say, feminists.
18 comments later, this is just too good to pass up. I predict a discussion about Boolean Operators coming, since "Mark" didn't know what th word "or" means.

It's hit over at feministing where most comments are supportive, but KellyMac just can't get over the fact that people don't agree with her.

It was pretty great to tell Matt that I wouldn't cause him anything but misery - he's probably thinking of ending things with anti-male, anti-marriage me.

Well, that interview was simple.
She asked me one question, about TVM, and then said "I've met you before, I know your work, you're a wonderful candidate," and that was it.

So it seems that even if a job on the Hill doesn't materialize, I should be in DC for the summer, should everything work out.
