i spent the whole of yesterday evening talking to a bunch of cute postgrads in the union jazz bar about our favourite diogenes of sinope anecdotes while they took turns getting up on stage to play with the band im literally such a winner how did i become so great

#1 pet hate: the assumption around here that anything i write will be on “Gender in [x]”. yes, that’s the spirit! replace “never talking about women” with “only talk about women… unless you’re a man, obviously”! women don’t get to have interests, they get Women’s Issues! incredible

oh anon, now that it’s not 4am and im not drunkblogging from a kebab shop after putting one of my friends in the recovery position on the pavement outside, i am now pretty sure it’s not actually the heels! im not actually that tall and although scottish men tend to be a bit on the stumpy side they are not that short! i have reconsidered and decided that my frankly excessive level of baby-face which makes people question the actual legality of hitting on me prrrrrooooooooobably has a lot more to do with it. wear the heels and be fab! (I also refer you to the cogent advice of my previous anon: fuck what anybody else thinks and wear the heels if you feel like it)

i like your style

ajax-daughter-of-telamon said: wait ... if you're 5'5", and you like five-inch heels, that only makes you 5'10" when you're wearing them ... ??? is that really too tall for most guys to hit on you? (I'm 5'8", don't get hit on, but I tend to attribute that to other things about me than my relatively unremarkable height)

apparently! i tend to get hit on in clubs a lot more when I wear flats, but I hate wearing flats because it means i can’t see anything and it makes me feel claustrophobic. it’s not exactly scientific but it’s the only thing i can think of that changes, hence my conclusion that men around here are weak and also kind of short

a 4am conundrum: all the heels that make my legs look as great as i want them to also make me too tall for 97% of men to hit on me and too straight for 100% of girls to hit on me. why can’t I just wear a big sign saying I AM NOT A STRAIGHT PERSON, ASK ME HOW. why must i be five foot five. why must i like five-inch heels so much. why are men so weak

a friend of mine keeps posting pictures of her weekend trip to her family estate in northumbria (yeah) where the national trust have asked her to be on the board of directors at the age of 21 (yeah) because her family name “speaks louder than money ever could” (FUCKING YEAH) and its so beautiful she will be first against the wall when the revolution comes
