This is the main reason for my general annoyance with lack of size regulation in the fashion industry…


men’s pants are labeled by waist and inseam measurement. women’s pants are labeled by voodoo. even though i do not buy women’s pants, i can recognize this as objectively dumb.


THE NOTES ON THIS


because i can’t stress this enough. this is why i don’t let the numbers get to me. as jumpingjacktrash so eloquently said “women’s pants are labeled by voodoo.” 

BUT THISTHISTHISTHISTHIS

so when boys make fun of girls taking forever to shop and trying everything on
WE FUCKING HAVE TO OR NOTHING WILL FIT

Forever grateful for this post for removing the shame of going into a different store and finding that the pants do not fit me even though I am WEARING the “same size” pants right that moment.

when i worked in retail, i tried to explain this concept to customers all the time, and they always got angry with me like i was lying about how ridiculous women’s sizing is.

I work in a clothing store and out of nowhere they decided to scale ALL of the women’s sizes down. No warning. They didn’t even tell us, the people selling them! Just all of a sudden everyone (including myself) had to go up a size. Total voodoo, not even consistent within the brand. The number literally means shit.

Two MSU basketball players raped a woman in the dorms then one admitted to it. Their only consequence was that they had to move out of the dorms. This picture is of me and one other woman holding up this banner during Midnight Madness. Two other brave souls had a banner on the other side for a while before some jerk started playing tug or war with them over it. This was taken before we got booed at by 10,000 people and police escorted from the stadium. 

How screwed up are people to boo at this? 

Let’s keep reposting this. Rapists should be charged.

how is sport more important than the lives of women? like honestly baffling

Do you want a copy of Amy Poehler’s new book? Do you want me to pay for it?! Well, congratulations, here’s your chance. In honor of Amy’s book, I am giving away a $25 e-giftcard to Amazon so you can have a copy all to yourself! That should be enough to order the book and pay for the shipping, with maybe a little left over. You win and you get the gift card code which will apply $25 to your Amazon account.[Technically speaking you don’t have to buy her book you could just use the money but that’s on your conscience not mine.] 

Rules
you don’t have to follow me, although it is appreciated. 
have to have an American account for Amazon. The gift card won’t work for other countries. 
reblog or like this post. you can do it more than once if you want but don’t spam it because that’s annoying. 
This will end on October 19, 2014 at 5:00 PM. I will notify the winner that night, if I don’t get a response in 24 hours, I’ll pick again.

My lawyer gives the same speech to everyone who wants to do business with me now. ‘Nicki is not one of those artists who allow her representatives to make decisions for her.’ I’m on conference calls all day with lawyers, accountants, and executives—people of power—and they treat me with respect. Because I command respect. I’m not cocky, but I deserve to know what’s going on. It’s my brand and my life. That’s my advice to women in general: Even if you’re doing a nine-to-five job, treat yourself like a boss. Not arrogant, but be sure of what you want—and don’t allow people to run anything for you without your knowledge. You want everyone to know, Okay, I can’t play games with her. I have to do right by this woman. That’s what it’s all about.
