    And I keep replaying the response to me, as a not-so-attractive female and just feel despair

  3. And somehow from there it ended up in a lot of really bad words and then I considered a photo and then...she lunged.

    And I'm kind of just shocked at the world, how this stereotypically pretty blonde who physically made contact with me was treated

  5. And I feel... if I didn't look so ugly - not some sloppy flu ridden mother - then the center management & police would have shown empathy

    And a lot of the time I feel like ppl like me for my brain but barely want to know me for how I look

    I figure so much of what happens isn’t about right or wrong, it’s about looks.

  10. @RachelHaywire she could be bawling incomprehensibly, saying whatever but she would still get positive attention for how pretty she looked

  12. And it’s taboo. I’ve had so many msgs from well presented women about how hard it is to be only taken at face value…

    but hardly any msgs from women at the other end of the stick as a result society’s fucked up values

    And that’s because we’re taught to internalise it, taught there’s something wrong with us if we don’t look like the way society demands

    I back myself up twenty different ways nowadays because frankly I don’t believe most ppl take the time to see me as a person

  22. @Asher_Wolf It's funny how easy social interactions are now that I conform to required type (tall,blond,thin)...no more unsolicited advice.

  26. @Asher_Wolf Some people are pretty open about seeing me as basically a friendly idiot, and I strongly suspect it has to do with appearance.

    @Asher_Wolf The fact that I'm highly intelligent, highly technical, and a fucking *researcher* is frequently left unconsidered. =/
