someone i dont really know posted a facebook status today that vaguely addressed all army girlfriends in general, and said something along the lines of, ‘im sorry but army girlfriends, how DARE you support the army as an institution, because women who serve are sometimes raped’
sorry, what..? to me her comment smacks of “catholic priests are sometimes molesters, so ANYONE WHO IS RELIGIOUS IS EVIL” or “terrorists came from X country, lets HATE EVERY INHABITANT OF X”
Correct me if im wrong, but army girlfriends are women who have an S/O that serves. that DOESNT mean they agree with what the Army does, or even with what their S/O does! it’s pretty damning to accuse every girlfriend of an officer with supporting rape.
i guess in certain circles its hip to hate on ‘backwards americans’ nowadays but as a self proclaimed feminist with higher education in sociology and anthropology she should think a bit harder before throwing around such generalizations
I show affection for my pets by holding them against me and whispering I love you repeatedly as they struggle to escape from my arms
Regardless of how you feel about other people’s pets, whether they’re rats or snakes or spiders or lizards or whatever else, don’t be a dick. Do not make jokes about killing them, do not comment on how disgusting they are and do not act like the animal is a contagious disease that you need to get away from. These are our beloved pets. You wouldn’t like it if someone treated your pets like that, so please don’t do it to ours just because they’re a little bit different.
