The RN: Turning Over a New Leaf

I don't really have anything to say. Well, that's not exactly true I think I've written half of at least 3 more blogs, but none of them are close to being finished. And none of them seems like the right thing to say going into the New Year.

As some of you may recall, I didn't have the best New Year's last year. I am actively working to be happier about New Year's this year. I have worked to spend less time with people who don't respect my boundaries and for the most part it's working. I'm way less stressed than I used to be and in general everything is working out better.

So, for the first time in a while, I have no angry rant today. I know, I know, that's not as entertaining, but it's still healthier for me. I'm turning over a new leaf with 2016. I'm letting go of my anger and not letting things sit there and simmer.

I'll just leave you with this:
Happy 2016!

The RN: Calendar Worthy

So, I was super excited to see this new calendar was coming out. Historically this calendar was full of "hot naked chicks" and had been for decades. Next year the calendar will be full of successful women. Regardless of their size, shape, or age. I was excited to see a long tradition of objectifying women* turning into respecting women. Here's the picture of Amy Schumer:

Pretty awesome in my book.

Then I ran across some jackhole who just had to turn into something stupid. I don't even want to read the original article, this commentary is enough to make me mad.

I don't understand why men like this think my worth as a woman, as a person, has anything to do with whether my picture makes his dick hard. Or why he thinks I care whether my picture makes his dick hard.

*Yes, reducing women to sex objects for viewing pleasure (by either men or women) is objectifying them. No, that doesn't mean I'm against pin up calendars or porn.
