“What if women had minstrel cycles instead of menstrual cycles? You’d just have a guy with a lute follow you around for a week every month and play you songs constantly?”

#no but can you imagine if that was how you learned once a month you weren’t pregnant#by some dude singing songs about the victory of it#you wake up and he’s there and you are so happy#this dude becomes your favorite dude#but then you realize you haven’t seen your friend’s minstrel in a while#I mean everyone notices#like half the people are on the same cycle so for one week out of four your job is just flooded with fucking minstrels everywhere#the cacophony#but Mary over there is all alone#and she’s like my minstrel is late#but we all fucking know#her minstrel has gone off to find her a baby#a nine month journey he must make alone#and until he comes back there is no music in her life#what a glorious world this would be#I love the minstrels (@onionjuggler)

“Most women in the modern Western world have no space of our own in the home—no den, basement workshop, garage, outside domain, or special chair in the living room. Though the kitchen and bedroom often are thought of as “her” rooms, they are hers only as spaces in which she is expected to provide services to and for her man. Private space—space in which she can just be, space where she does not have to justify her presence by being engaged in work—is nonexistent unless she actively creates and maintains it.”

and its interesting that when watching tv or reading things the “man cave” always gets brought up as a half joke but really more serious thing that every man “needs” but then when women have craft rooms or other similar things related to their own interest it is always the butt of a joke (haha silly wimminz wanting space of their own)

We’re looking for our next house right now and we are looking for one with enough space that I can have a craft room. That’s non negotiable, I craft a lot and it’s good for my mental health but mostly it’s important to me and therefore it’s important to my boyfriend too.

When I tell people that there is a LOT of pushback. They act like we are being extravagant (I’m aware we are very privileged to be able to afford this but this is fro. People with three cars and five tvs) or say thing like ‘where will [boyfriend] go?!’

Oh I dunno, LITERALLY ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE WHOLE HOUSE, which is also his? Where will he watch tv? Probably the lounge room. You know. Where the tv is.

Or they say ‘will he at least get a shed??’ No, since he hates gardening. Probably I will get a shed.

It makes me so mad, but I hadn’t really articulated why until this post.

This is why the thought of marriage or living with a romantic partner makes me queasy. I NEED my space. I’m not being selfish or cold, I really, honestly need a private place of my own in order to be happy. I’m afraid that if I get married or move in with a partner (specifically a male partner) that I’ll have to give up my private space and I’ll end up making my partner miserable with my own unhappiness. I’m sure LOTS of other women feel this way. Why is it considered so weird and selfish for a woman to want a place of her own? Why can men have “man caves” and garages and workshops to get away from UGH ALL MY WIFE’S STUFF UGH but women are obligated to share all their space with their male partners and children? It’s not fair and it makes me SO MAD.

I took a workshop run by a pretty well known embroiderer earlier this year and she told the class that when she and her husband had a second shed built because she really needed her own space (her embroidery being both her hobby and her livelihood) she was watching the work and a contractor made the comment that her husband was a lucky guy, “he gets two sheds.”

At which point she told him that the second shed being built was for herself. Apparently he then threw the pipes he was carrying on the ground in disgust and they had to hire someone else because he stopped working effectively on the shed.

I am now the proud owner of three volumes of Saga bought soley on the basis of the caps I’ve seen on Tumblr. 

I am a poor shopper.

Also a new adventure time comic.
