Being a woman sometimes (always?) feels like

judgeisonvinyl:

You can’t have an opinion because its inherently wrong, you can’t be firm because then you’re just being a bitch, you can’t provide advice because it will be ignored until a dude says the same fucking shit and then its all “eureka! what great advice!” You can’t be sexually adventurous because then you’re a slut, you can’t speak up OR shut up because somehow both are wrong, and then on top of it you bleed out of your bottom half once a fucking month (or twice if youre really fucked!), have to give birth, go through menopause, and still do 1,000 things to help the fucking world run but we’re still just weak, dumb bitches who are products of the male gaze and unequal pay so lol it doesn’t even really matter, does it?

Basically.

Number #494 on the Rolling Stone list [what this is about]

You may be surprised to learn that this song made the Rolling Stone 500 greatest songs list. Me? I’m not surprised. I’ve carried a torch for “Ignition” since its inception, since the first time I heard the words “you must be a football coach” because, come on, has there ever been a love song where a desired woman is compared to a football coach? I think not. That is some forward thinking right there, a masterpiece of lyricism. 

But he doesn’t stop there. No, this one is full of gems. From the “toot toot” and “beep beep” to the “Murder She Wrote” reference, “Ignition” is just a joy to sing. R. Kelly is a master at shoving euphemistic phrases in your face and while “I’m about to take my key and stick it in the ignition” is probably the most base of them all, it totally works here.

I like to play this song every Friday on my way home from work. While I may not be poppin’ a bottle of Cristal in a Navigator or going to the hotel lobby for a party, it’s still the freakin’ weekend baby and I’m about to have me some fun. Sure, my idea of fun is sitting in my pajamas on the couch surfing the internet for ten hours straight, but I think I can get a “toot toot” and a “beep beep” for that.

extremelymisc and I are pretty fond of Ignition.

Humans, go DIAF.

Some lady just forced herself into the six inches of space between myself and the back of a row of seats on the train instead of the four feet of space open to my right. I proceed to move into that space because HI I DON’T LIKE STANDING ON TOP OF OTHER PEOPLE when there’s ample room on the train. Guess what that bitch does? Thirty seconds later she sits down in a seat that was open the entire time.

I seriously cannot stand the human race.

So it’s like this.
The small mountain town where my dad teaches has this totally rad community garden and they’re trying to win some much-needed grant money in this online contest. They’re up against way bigger towns who likely have a bigger voting bloc so I’m playing ringer and trying to get the word out. 
If you could follow these simple steps and throw them some votes I (and they) would really appreciate it. 
1. Go here: www.seedsofchangegrant.com 
2. Search for “West Point Community Garden – Harvesting Change” or the zip code 95255 
3. Vote! 
Bonus Item: Go back and vote once a day (don’t worry, I’ll remind you). 
It’s easy as hell and best of all there’s no sign up (there is a captcha so as long as you’re not a robot or a sentient computer virus or something you should be fine) all you have to do is find the right garden and click the vote button. 
Thank you, I love you, the West Point Community Garden loves you, and vegetables in general love you. 

I love Ed, and his Dad, and his Dad’s goats, so I voted and you should too. It really was easy peasy.
