There has been construction going on around my apartment building for a few months now and one thing that has been bothering me is the signage posted in the buildings and outside along the fences. Every 10 metres or so they have a “Danger Men Working” sign, about 10 signs in total.

I think what bothers me isn’t just the fact that this construction company has posted these signs that seem to (and want to?) exclude women from their construction site, but also that some manufacturer has mass created these signs, implying many construction companies expect (or want) no women to be working on their sites?

After hearing me try to express my issues with these signs for several weeks, my girlfriend and I were walking past them one night and she happened to have a permanent marker in her bag. So she made some edits to them, which is what the top picture is of. She wrote ‘Or Women’ between where it says “Men Working” on them.

But a week later, and the ‘Or Women’ additions that she had made have now been somehow removed from all the signs she wrote on. So I am going to try to find a marker that is harder to remove, and re-edit the signs until they stop erasing it.

Hey guys, I try not to ask for too much, but I’d really like your help with something.

I just entered into a scholarship competition that requires me to get a lot of votes, but if I somehow manage to get into first place by May 29th, I could win $1,000. 

I’d really appreciate it if you would take just a second to vote for me, and pass it on to your friends!


PS.

 I really really really need this, so I’ve decided to offer a little extra bonus to you guys. After voting, if you want, you can send me a message with the vote number, and any fic prompt you want, and I’ll write you a little minific (anywhere from 3 sentences to 1k words depending on my mood) in thanks.

From last night, bleghhhhh. Anyway, happy birthday to the supreme queen Siouxsie Sioux & also the elder of horror, Vincent Price. May they reign eternally in the dream house on haunted hill. ~ ♥🎃♥👻♥💀♥ Have a swell Wednesday, ya bats.

Please Don’t Unfollow While I’m Gone

Hi, guys! In case you didn’t know, I will be leaving on an amazing adventure this weekend- I’m going to PERU! I’ll be gone pretty much the entire month of June, and while I hope that I can occasionally share a photo or two with you all, I can’t guarantee much activity while I’m gone! WiFi will be spotty, and let’s be real here- I’m gonna be too busy adventuring to tumblr!

So please don’t unfollow thinking I am inactive. I am just abroad, and I promise to share all the amazing pictures and adventures I have when I get back!

Thanks so much!
