#WhenIWas

WhenIWas

I usually don’t follow much on Twitter but recently there has been a major trend with the hashtag #WhenIWas and it really resonated with me. And it made me think back on all my experiences growing up as a female. For the most part girls are brought up being told (or conditioned) that our goal in life is to find a husband and get married. And this involves heavily on us being attractive to the opposite sex and acting a certain way to attract a male even to the point of “fishing” for compliments and dumbing ourselves down. As young girls we are told to say “thank you” and smile for strange men who give us compliments on the way we look. Regardless if it makes us feel uncomfortable or not. Why is this okay? And why is this still going on today? Case in point, I’m almost 32 years old and my mother still tells me to look “decent” in public and that I need to find a man to take care of me, one who preferably likes big girls as she likes to point out. Clearly, I’m fucking over it. So here’s my list, because really what girl only has just one instance of harassment? These are only just a few of the big ones that really kind of shaped me as a woman.

#WhenIWas 8 years old I was sexually molested by my Aunt’s second husband. I didn’t tell anybody until I was 18.

#WhenIWas 12 years old a male teacher used his laser pointer to point to mine and other girls breasts and butts. He never got in trouble even when I did go to the Vice Principle.

#WhenIWas 17 years old a neighbor of my parents who was also a policeman at the time grabbed my hand and tried to put it down his pants. I did tell my parents but they were afraid of retaliation so until he moved whenever I walked outside to my car my dad would follow me.

F Gender Roles

So I promised more Pose Fair goodies and I’m here to deliver! WetCat has come out with this amazingly sexy pose set for couples. All To Myself includes 4 separate poses and mesh color-change tank tops. Here’s the tricky part: the tank is part of the pose and can not be worn separately. So demoing is a must along with a mesh body (there is an alpha to transfer to your partner if they still use the regular SL body.) Good news is that it is modify and can be stretched or shrunk for a better fit.

Small Moments is just one of the newest releases by WetCat at this months Pose Lover. I think it’s so cute and what girl doesn’t love to be kissed on the forehead? I know I do.  Maybe it’s just because we’re still in February but I’ve been in a major romantic mood and loving all the floral furniture that’s been coming out. All the decor you see here is from Six O’Clock Rosed collection at SaNaRae along with this adorable jacket from M.I.X.

Like I’m Gonna Lose You

Like I'm Gonna Lose You

I found myself dreaming
In silver and gold
Like a scene from a movie
That every broken heart knows we were walking on moonlight
And you pulled me close
Split second and you disappeared and then I was all alone
I woke up in tears
With you by my side
A breath of relief
And I realized
No, we’re not promised tomorrow
So I’m gonna love you
Like I’m gonna lose you
I’m gonna hold you
Like I’m saying goodbye wherever we’re standing
I won’t take you for granted ’cause we’ll never know when
When we’ll run out of time so I’m gonna love you
Like I’m gonna lose you
I’m gonna love you like I’m gonna lose you
