“There’s no need to stir up any more trouble than is necessary. The connections you cultivate are crucial keys to your success.”
So, I found it extremely ironic and fitting that part of my horoscope advised me to not “stir up any more trouble than necessary.” My article was issued in the school newspaper yesterday. Overnight, people got really turned up. I mean, I woke up and went to the bathroom to shower….is my dorm room neighbor staring me down? Hmmm…Oh, and then I hear whispers that people are talking about me. I am a celebrity. My boyfriend tells me that people are having a huge fight on Facebook. I don’t have one because I think it is overrated, but apparently people are accusing my boyfriend of sexually harassing me, that I would never write an article like that unless someone was forcing me to. I died laughing when I heard this. People here are ridiculous; they refuse to see what is right in front of them. This school and the people in it are OPPRESSIVE! I did not write that article for my health, nor did I do it because someone forced me to. I was actually inspired by my own will and the fact that all of my guy friends can say nothing without it relating back to them having male privilege.
I have never felt so happy and wonderful in all my life. I don’t give a freak what people think or say, because I know I did the right thing. This morning a guy approached me – the guy who was the center of the shirtless issue and was “demonized” and told that he was exercising his male privilege – asked me as we were walking to class, “How does it feel to be Enemy #1 on campus?” My answer: “Great!! I don’t give a flip what people say about me!”
And, it’s going to stay that way. I opened people’s eyes, and you know what? People are siding with me.
