calloused
Nineteen. Living between robin's egg blue mountains and swirling rivers. I'm married to the Blue Ridge Mountains and I don't know much about living, but I know a lot about surviving. I'm a little bit happy and a lot a bit sad and I'm doing the best I can.

I am about to publish my first book and am raising money to do so.

Please help if you can.

The link to my Facebook page is on the donation page. You're all rad as fuck.

All I want out of life is my book in people's calloused hands and my very own avocado tree planted outside of my very own bookstore.

HAPPY EARTH DAY! EARTH DAY! EARTH DAY! THE DAY FOR EARTH!

Go run around in the woods!
Pet a fungus! Mushrooms are your friends!
Don’t step on anthills!
Moss is good to sleep on!
Look for cool river rocks weathered by years of rushing water!
Look! Snails! Snails just want to be places in their own time! Help them out of the way of foot traffic!
Build a fire using dead trees and clear out your yard or what have you for new growth! And then look at the stars while you tend the fire!
Take pictures!
Lay out in dappled sunlight and relax, slowly let go of your muscle tension and feel your body meld to the dirt beneath you!
YOU’RE ON A MAGMA CRUST! THAT SHIFTS AND MOVES AND YOU CAN’T TELL ME THAT ISN’T COOL AS FUCK!
Warm honey in your veins.

EARTH DAY. EARTH DAY. EARTH DAY. LET’S GO OUTSIDE.

You want to say Hi to the cute girl on the subway. How will she react? Fortunately, I can tell you with some certainty, because she’s already sending messages to you. Looking out the window, reading a book, working on a computer, arms folded across chest, body away from you = do not disturb. So, y’know, don’t disturb her. Really. Even to say that you like her hair, shoes, or book. A compliment is not always a reason for women to smile and say thank you. You are a threat, remember? You are Schrödinger’s Rapist. Don’t assume that whatever you have to say will win her over with charm or flattery. Believe what she’s signaling, and back off.

If you speak, and she responds in a monosyllabic way without looking at you, she’s saying, “I don’t want to be rude, but please leave me alone.” You don’t know why. It could be “Please leave me alone because I am trying to memorize Beowulf.” It could be “Please leave me alone because you are a scary, scary man with breath like a water buffalo.” It could be “Please leave me alone because I am planning my assassination of a major geopolitical figure and I will have to kill you if you are able to recognize me and blow my cover.”

On the other hand, if she is turned towards you, making eye contact, and she responds in a friendly and talkative manner when you speak to her, you are getting a green light. You can continue the conversation until you start getting signals to back off.

The fourth point: If you fail to respect what women say, you label yourself a problem.

There’s a man with whom I went out on a single date—afternoon coffee, for one hour by the clock—on July 25th. In the two days after the date, he sent me about fifteen e-mails, scolding me for non-responsiveness. I e-mailed him back, saying, “Look, this is a disproportionate response to a single date. You are making me uncomfortable. Do not contact me again.” It is now October 7th. Does he still e-mail?

Yeah. He does. About every two weeks.

This man scores higher on the threat level scale than Man with the Cockroach Tattoos. (Who, after all, is guilty of nothing more than terrifying bad taste.) You see, Mr. E-mail has made it clear that he ignores what I say when he wants something from me. Now, I don’t know if he is an actual rapist, and I sincerely hope he’s not. But he is certainly Schrödinger’s Rapist, and this particular Schrödinger’s Rapist has a probability ratio greater than one in sixty. Because a man who ignores a woman’s NO in a non-sexual setting is more likely to ignore NO in a sexual setting, as well.

So if you speak to a woman who is otherwise occupied, you’re sending a subtle message. It is that your desire to interact trumps her right to be left alone. If you pursue a conversation when she’s tried to cut it off, you send a message. It is that your desire to speak trumps her right to be left alone. And each of those messages indicates that you believe your desires are a legitimate reason to override her rights.

For women, who are watching you very closely to determine how much of a threat you are, this is an important piece of data.

an excerpt from Phaedra Starling’s “Schrödinger’s Rapist: or a guy’s guide to approaching strange women without being maced” (via lostgrrrls)

women being afraid of Shrodinger’s Rapists (oh my god i still can’t get over the encompassing brilliance of this phrase) is a conditioned, learned response from being immersed in rape culture and the evolution of sexism and sexual violence in our society from the day we’re born. And unfortunately, it’s very difficult to unlearn without the efforts of all genders to dismantle it. Which is where you come in.
