i am at my most vulnerable when the “check engine” light comes on in my car.

i suddenly feel the urge to call up every guy i know and ask if they can telepathically tell me what is wrong with my vehicle…

and even though it almost always means that it’s time for my oil change, it’s kind of comforting knowing that i can pull out my girly card and become the damsel in distress.

being a girl has some perks…

sometimes.

sure, we get the shitty part of the gender deal what with all of the periods and cramps and birthing bits that we have to tolerate…

but for the most part, i don’t think i would choose being male over female.

and let’s be realistic here, nowadays you most certainly have that as an option…

nonetheless, there are a number of things that frustrate me about the assumptions that guys make about girls:

  • do not presume that simply because i am moody or have an angry disposition, that it is “that time of the month”…

there are millions of other factors that could be the cause of that, and maybe, just maybe, one of them is that moronic fucking statement that boys love to so easily blame it on.

  • just because i am fully capable of opening the car door for myself, it doesn’t mean that it wouldn’t be a nice gesture if you went out of your way to do it for me instead…

who in the fuck killed chivalry and why didn’t anybody try to revive it?

  • do not presume that all girls are whores who are looking to hook up with any guy that gives them the teensiest bit of attention…

being flirty and being friendly are actually two different things, so when we’re just being polite, it’s probably best that you don’t think we’re just being prostitutes.

  • just because i am coming to you with a problem, it doesn’t necessarily mean that i need you to solve it…

sometimes, it’s just nice to have someone to vent to that will simply listen and be mute.

naturally, this list can overflow as could the ‘what girls do to irk guys’ one, but i’m sure those topics have also been exhausted ad nauseam.

needless to say, i may not always need a hero…

but i wouldn’t mind having someone to save the day, once in a while.
