I saw a news report about this on T.V., she was a straight A Student who had perfect attendance and everything. Everyone loved and respected her for her skills, but when she started this experiment and people thought she was pregnant, they started treating her like garbage. Even her teachers started looking down on her like she was scum of the earth. The only people who knew she was doing this as an experiment were her school principle, her health care teacher and her father. Her own mother thought she was pregnant.
I mean even her friends turned on her, it was horrid. Very very sad, and as soon as she revealed during an assembly that the pregnancy was false, a lot of people were in shock as she brought up all the horrible things they said and did to her because they thought she was pregnant.
The reason for the experiment was to see how people would react and treat her if they thought she was pregnant, as opposed as to treating her as the straight A “Perfect” student they usually did. And it proved that people were horrible scumbags to her as soon as they thought she was.
holy shit. this is fucking awesome
Let’s not forget the fact that if she were a Becky, she would have gotten a TV show.
There’s a movie on Lifetime with Alexa Vega playing as her, so technically, she’s getting better than a show. She’s getting a whole movie about her and her experiences.
Sizes are just numbers assigned to garments to make shopping easier. Ever thought of it that way? They’re numbers, put in order, that are designed to make our lives easier when we go shopping. They’re not telling you you’re EXTRA LARGE, or SMALL. They’re like, “oh hey this top is smaller than that one, just FYI” So you can be like, “Why thank you size tag, you just saved me so much time!” Size tags should not hurt your feelings. You should be thankful that they exist! And besides, every size is dependent on the brand. There is no universal size. They’re sized in comparison to other items of the same variety, for your convenience. Just don’t be scared of a number on a tag, okay?
To the men who have told me that I’m overreacting and “it’s the 21st century women are equal now”
Note that the “women make only 77.5 cents for every dollar that men earn” statistic applies only to white women. Women of color make significantly less.
- Black women make about $0.68 to a man’s dollar.
- Latina women make about $0.58 to a man’s dollar.
