A small rant for you all to contend with:

Whilst walking to maths earlier today, two guys the same age as me happened to be walking behind me. I don’t know the two of them all that well, I speak to them when I have to – but we’re not what I’d call ‘friends’. The moment I overtook them, one made some kind of noise – obviously meaning something to them. The other responded to said noise with “no, she’s not that bad. Maybe, a 6 on a scale of 1 to 10.” The first boy argued back, saying she was “an absolute maximum of 5”. The debate went on a little, and I managed to gather from the nature of comments such as “she’s no Megan Fox” that they were referring to this person’s looks. I turned around and asked, curiously, who they were talking about. The response went along the lines of “a particular girl who he thinks is really ugly, but I think she’s alright”. A further response referred to said girl as a certain guy’s girlfriend. And guess what? I happen to be that certain guy’s girlfriend. I turned back around and their conversation continued, despite them being fully aware that I could hear them.

And what’s so wrong with this, you ask? Firstly, it is generally rude to discuss someone negatively when they’re right infront of you and know it’s them. Secondly, I was referred to not by my name, but as someone’s girlfriend – as if I am merely ‘property’. Thirdly, they spoke as though their judgement on my physical appearance is somehow the epitome of my existence. Fourthly, the fact I was referred to as ‘a girlfriend’ suggests that they do not deem my offence at this, and that they are merely judging my boyfriend (whose name I am keeping anonymous) on how well he ‘scored’.

So, allow me to summarise. I am more than my boyfriend’s property. I am worth more than my physical appearance. The opinion of two chauvinistic males in no way influences how I wish to present myself, nor is it the be-all and end-all of my entire life.
