A lot of fluff and a tiny bit of historical stuff. Mainly Doctor Who, Sherlock, Harry Potter, Supernatural, Firefly, and numerous other nerdy things :D

I’m not even a man but I’m a black woman and I’ve experienced this on the subway, elevators, etc. And I ALWAYS want to do that “boo!” Part.

I was walking down the street one day and passed a girl and a guy sitting on a bench. I had my big messenger bag (w/ laptop and a couple of books) with me that day and, as I passed, I moved the bag a little so I wouldn’t hit the people sitting on the bench.

At that point the young woman started saying, “Oh, can’t trust your bag near me? What, you think I’m just gonna snatch it off your arm? You listening to me? Hey!”

I had just kept walking b/c I didn’t realize she was talking to me. When I did, I thought about getting mad, but then I just got upset. How many times have people moved their bags away from her, not because they didn’t want to accidentally hit her with it but because they thought she was going to steal it? A nice young girl, probably a college student (the college was right there, so I just assumed she went there), being treated like a criminal? 

Yes, I generally clutch at my bag when men walk by. Unfortunately, that’s not so much a “what you’re wearing/your skin tone” sort of thing, but a “you’re a male who towers over my five-foot and who could easily overpower me” thing. I clutch at my purse in case I need to run, in case I need to defend myself.

Or sometimes it’s super heavy and I don’t want to accidentally give you a bruise.

i want to open a book store that is 24 hours and people can finally go out at like 2am and be like “i just finished the first book in the series i need the next one stat” or if people are just having a stressful night and want to be surrounded by books

My favorite part about this post is that someone understands that it’s calming to be surrounded by books

a book nightclub.

read responsibly.

Someone make this happen pls.
