But, no seriously. The whole ‘mic drop’ thing…. As a techie, this makes me cringe, because, well…
DO YOU KNOW HOW EXPENSIVE THEH ARE? DO YOU KNOW HOW FUCKING DELICATE THEY ARE? DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE GOD AWFUL NOISE THEY MAKE WHEN YOH DROP THEM? I MEAN, REALLY!!!! I KNOW YOUR POINT IS IMPORTANT BUT, DO YOU REALLY HAVE TO MAKE MY JOB SUPER DIFFICULT TO MAKE IT?!
Also, it may cause the techie to have to come out and replace the mic and that’s just not cool, because every time a techie is seen by an audience member a fairy dies. And no one wants that to happen now do they?
People think feminism means that there’s a group of women somewhere that want to take trousers with pockets away from men and give them to women, and give men trousers with fake pockets, while in reality feminism is the general idea that everyone should have trousers with pockets, because pockets are awesome.
“There’s no point to a guy yelling, “Hey sexy baby” at me out of the passenger window of a car as it speeds past. Even if I was into creepy misogynists and wanted to give him my number, I couldn’t. The car didn’t even slow down. But that’s okay, because he wasn’t actually hitting on me. The point wasn’t to proposition me or chat me up. The only point was to remind me, and all women, that our bodies are his to stare at, assess, comment on, even touch. “Hey sexy baby” is the first part of a sentence that finishes, “this is your daily message from the patriarchy, reminding you that your body is public property”.”—My First Name Ain’t Baby: ‘Hey Baby’ and Street Harassment (via official-mens-frights-activist)
