i learned that two Canadian schoolboys hacked into an ATM using a manual found online (x)
Having beaten the system, the boys decided not to steal any money, but rather change the welcome message to customers to “Go Away. This machine has been hacked.” At this point they went into their local bank branch to report the discovery to rather bemused staff.
Later on, the boys realized they’re late for class so the bank manager wrote a note to their teacher saying “helping BMO with its security”.
While I was growing up, and even now to be honest, men have made me feel like I shouldnt exist the way that I do. However in particular when I was younger and more vulnerable and naive, their entitlement in what they deemed as unacceptable about my body, to the point where grown men would feel the need to point out directly or indirectly about my body hair in public spaces… Just thinking about it makes me feel sick, because I’ve realised that I’ve repressed so much of my trauma, that now I cant even imagine how I felt when I faced that amount of humiliation when I was so young. I was just a kid existing, who hadn’t fully understood that I had a hormonal condition and was very hairy. Like the damage is done now, all that bullying from boys and men, from my own dad first of all. And I need to start understanding that this is one of the reasons why I am so extremely convinced that I cannot expect anything other than repulsiveness and disapproval towards my body from men. Idk, the intense fear and anxiety of a man ever seeing my body has lessened at least, but this feeling didnt just come from nowhere, and I’m genuinely so tired of feeling like I shouldnt exist.
