Hot weather + freedom of speech = rude ass men making comments out loud just cuz i'm wearing a dress.
As much as i love the weather these days, i can't stand how some men behave because of it. Yes, i understand women are going to receive a certain amount of attention because of our attire but that doesn't justify kissing noises and catcalls. And the older i get, the less patient i am with it. I'm quick to flip a bird or scream on someone. My trigger is hair-like.
and speaking of screaming on someone...i damn near got into a 3-on-2 brawl on Saturday night. yeah. me. anyone who knows me and is reading this right now (yeah right) would be highly shocked at that declaration...ok so what had happened was:
Jehan and i had gone out to see Paul Mooney at Caroline's. lemme tangent real quick and say that his show was beyond disappointing. This man is a comedy legend from way back and has now reduced himself to the most bitter, angry, and embarrassing nigger/fuck/bitch laden rants i've ever heard. There were very few "jokes"...i think the audience (and me) laughed mostly out of a sense of "i can't believe he just said that". It was wholly uncreative, lazy and annoying. He said nigger so much that it apparently made the non-black people in the audience think it was ok. I say this because when we were leaving to get our car from a parking garage, there was this drunk Italian-looking girl (she was at the show too) who saw fit to use the word a couple times, offhandedly talking about some guy. Well i don't let that kinda shit slide so i spoke up and told her that i was offended by her blatant usage of that word in my presence. In true drunk fashion, she waved me off w/her hand than proceeded to yell at me about how it was none of my business what she said since she wasn't talking to me or about me, etc. Then her two other drunk cohorts jumped in and one said what "they" all say: Your people say it! All 5 of us are yelling at each other and the situation was definitely escalating so thankfully my car showed up when it did and Jehan and I sped off into the night...
So thanks, Mr. Paul Mooney. you're doing SUCH a great job.
