How Nice is too Nice? A Rant.

I'm continually amazed at how tactless people are when they feel they know you, but don't. Case in point: men who have to nitpick women on the radio just because they're women. I don't just assume a guy is a "skank" or a "slut" because he's on the air, why are those the easiest things to call women they hear? Do they honestly think, "She's on the radio, she's a slut?" Is that the question that goes through their heads? Amazing that these people who don't even know me think I'm an "idiot," a "slut," a "skank," a "teeny-bopper jerk."

Thick skin. Fine, you have to have thick skin, but sometimes I don't. It's hard enough to get up, try to do a good job at work, try to have a bit of a life, take care of yourself, make sure the oil in your car is changed... the normal stuff everyone else deals with too. And yet, some person has to ruin your day by just sending an email out of the blue personally insulting you for absolutely nothing. Nothing constructive, just the fact that you're on the radio so you're a "skank."

Token woman. When will society get to the point where the female isn't the "token?" Will we ever deem a man "token?" And why is it that when a women works off her ass and tries to get ahead in her career, she's nothing more than just a "token?" Not a "hard-worker" not "good at what she does" but a "token."

At what point do you stop having the will not to believe all the bad stuff? Never, I will rant and I will go on. Opinions are like assholes, everybody's got one, and so do I.

Yeah for more glitter! No one is as thick skinned as they would like to me. Negative feedback hurts. No way around that one missy.

As far as I'm concerned, you're not a "token" anything. You're total fab! Period.

I see where you are frustrated over comments on the show blog. Not always easy to be in the line of fire. I can not help but wonder if the Jake knows you. Dave was right when he posted that the boy sure knows a lot about you.
Surly ex boyfriend perhaps?

I will DEFINITELY include more glitter on this blog!!

THANKS for taking the time to read, and I will FOR REAL update this one too with fun stuff!

Glen, I don't know who that Jake person is, I don't know if it's anyone from my past. I didn't think I had any past enemies, but you never know. And you certainly can't make everyone like you so we do what we can. I'm just trying to reserve the show blog for show stuff, and that's where it gets tough.
