so basically i had glasses in year 4-5 bc i cant see for shit and i was getting headaches and stuff but people started making fun of me for being a smart person with glasses and made me feel super ugly when they were on so i stopped wearing them bc i wanted to fit in. But then i grew up and now in retrospect that was a stupid ass thing like wtf i couldn’t see fuck those little shits i was beautiful.
So grade 11 is a thing that happened and id just moved schools and had been there for like 2 or 3 months and i was like this is crazy I’m blind af time to get some glasses. but then the first day i wore them some douche dick was like “you look better without glasses” and i was pissed bc like how dare he, a 16 year old boy, still do the same bullshit as these 10 year old bullies??? surely he had matured? apparently not. So I was like “Why’s that?” and he said (I shit you not) “When girls wear glasses they look smarter and no guy wants a girl who is smarter than them”
i literally had to explain to a person that i wore the glasses because i have shitty vision and not because i wanted to attract a male. it took a whole hour.
then right at the end he goes “okay keep the glasses then, but you’re going to have to act dumb if you want a boyfriend” and this ladies, gentlemen and non-binaries is a fine example of the frailty of the uneducated straight male brain.
