Friendly Reminder: DON’T TOUCH ME!

Friendly Reminder: DON’T TOUCH ME!

Helloooo everyone! This past weekend, I had a late birthday outing with my BFF, Lea, to Sarah’s Vineyard. They were having a summer solstice event the day we happened to go and it was a blast! We enjoyed doing wine tastings and both got a big ol’ sangria to drink while we caught up with each other.

Everything was going just SWELL and it was so nice to be able to hang out Lea because it had been way too long. While we were chit chatting, I thought I felt a bug on my leg, so I turned around quickly to discover it was some woman bent down near my derriere and touching the back of my thighs. When I loudly said “can you NOT?” she replied with “I was just trying to look at your tattoos”. I told her not to touch me and she got all attitudey with “well FINE I won’t look at them” and blah, blah, blah.

It was such an off putting situation to be in and I was left feeling pretty gross. I am used to the dirty looks that I get as a heavily tattooed woman (I have over forty, I think!), but I have never been touched before by a random stranger and especially in such an inappropriate area. Honestly, I just wanted to shove the girl away from me but I kept my cool and remained calm during the situation. However, if she would have continued to bother me, then trust and believe there would have been an issue.

It is NEVER okay to touch anyone without their consent and please remember that those of us with body mods are nine times out of ten NOT OKAY with being touched whether that be on our piercings or tattoos. We are not here to be ogled at and poked and prodded like some kind of circus side show. I thought that this should be an obvious thing, but APPARENTLY NOT! Je-sus. *massive eye roll*

What is something that people bother you about in public? How do you deal with it? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Shameful Specimens: Kylie Jenner Edition

Shameful Specimens: Kylie Jenner Edition

Helloooo everyone and welcome to a new edition of Shameful Specimens. Usually I don’t care to put celebrities “on blast” but I hardly consider Kylie Jenner worthy of being called a celebrity, so it’s okay. I had the misfortune of stumbling upon Jenner’s disgusting photo shoot for Interview magazine and I just had to say something. Especially as someone who:

  • Has a brother with special needs
  • Β Is a figure skating coach for the Special Olympics
  • Has a job interviewing people with developmental disabilities to help provide them with the best services and care possible
  • Has a mother who is a developmental pediatrician
  • Also, as someone who sees the glamorization of disabilities as severely wrong

I’m not going to post the pictures because I don’t care to, but if you haven’t seen them – just think of a blow up doll sitting in a wheelchair with a blank expression and a rigid body. Then in other pictures imagine the same thing except with Kylie’s legs lifted in a position that a wheelchair bound person more than likely can’t achieve on their own. I saw these pictures and they made me sick.

Anyone with an ounce of intelligence or sensitivity would know that these photos are offensive. These photos show a disabled person as powerless and as if to make it worse, Jenner is wearing fetish style garb which enhances this statement even more. It really is just shameful and I’m baffled as to why anyone thought that this was a good idea. Disabilities aren’t a fashion statement.

Clearly, the Jenner/Kardashian clan who never had to work for anything in their life compliments of Kim’s sex tape have never encountered anyone less than perfect, by their standards. Had they ever had one day in the real world, interacting with normal people, they would meet someone bound to a wheelchair, someone with an amputation, or a developmental disability and realize just how wrong this photo shoot is.

Get off your high horses, come down from whatever high you’re on that makes you so gassed up as to think that you can’t do anything wrong or offensive and at least apologize to a community that has a difficult time enough as is. I praise those who have voiced their distaste for this “high fashion” shoot via social media and I adore the photos that people have posted in their wheelchairs with captions such as my personal favorite, “Oh I see! When I’m in my wheelchair no one can look me in the eye but when Kylie Jenner sits in a wheelchair it’s FASHION. silly me,” from @amysgotmilk on Twitter.

Usually I bite my tongue when it comes to celebrity offenses and mishaps but I just had to take a stand on this because it really is shameful and it hits so close to home for me. Kylie Jenner, you are my Shameful Specimen of the week and I hope you grow up and mature enough to understand the severity of your little photo shoot.

So there you have it, this week’s Shameful Specimens: Kylie Jenner edition. I know I’m going to get some backlash for this and I don’t care. I can’t stand the Kardashian/Jenner family as is so let’s add some fuel to the fire. Who has seen Kylie Jenner’s Interview photo shoot? What did you think about it? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Best Boyfriend Ever? Best Boyfriend Ever.

Best Boyfriend Ever? Best Boyfriend Ever.

Hello everyone and happy weekend! I know I mention my darling boyfriend, Kyle, quite frequently but I just can’t help it – he’s seriously the best. We had a wonderful day on Thursday together. Kyle accompanied me to the skating rink because every Thursday night I coach figure skating for the Special Olympics. Kyle got to meet all of my students and watch our hour long session and it warmed my bitter, cold, black heart. After practice we went to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants followed by a Netflix movie session at his place. It really was a perfect day!

So cute, right? Kyle is the best boyfriend ever for many reasons, one of them being how forgiving he is. On Thursday one of the literal most embarrassing moments of our relationship occurred. I’m shocked that he didn’t dump me right then and there! It was all thanks to some precious cuddling and the fact that I’m getting over a nasty cold…Shameful.

Kyle and I were all snuggled up on the futon watching Not Another Teen Movie. My beau turned to say something to me and ended up resting his head on my shoulder for a spell. All the while, I was sniffling up a storm and trying to get my snot to go back up my nose. I bent my head slightly to make a stupid comment to him and then…it happened. My snotty nose began to drip drip drip right onto his face. I. Was. MORTIFIED.

I almost didn’t believe it happened until Kyle reached up to touch his face and ended up getting a handful of my snot. At this point, my nose was dripping like a goddamned faucet and I put a finger in each nostril, walrus-style, to plug up the leak. I ambushed him with apologies and luckily after telling him how much I disgust myself, we were able to laugh it off. But ohmygod, I could have DIED!

One of the things that I love so much about Kyle is his silly sense of humor so I am so happy that we were able to find the joke in my snot falling on his face. Our relationship is going stronger than ever and if Kyle is mad at me about it, he’s doing a good job of covering it up! And he also didn’t kick me out of his house right after the “incident” happened. SCORE!! ❀

^^^ Success Baby says it best!

I’m so lucky that I have the Best Boyfriend Ever and I’m so excited to see him again so I can drip more snot on him, maybe! What is the most embarrassing moment that has ever happened with your significant other? What is everyone up to this weekend? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Whatsup everyone and TGIF! So last night I had the misfortune of stumbling upon pictures of the outfits Miley Cyrus wore during her stint at hosting the VMA’s and all I have is one word to sum up my feelings: SHAMEFUL!!!! I refuse to post pictures of her to add to her popularity as a so called “celebrity” but I do have some general opinions about Miss Cyrus, considering she’s setting a horrid example for young people everywhere, so let’s discuss with some Lil Red Words Of Wisdom:

  • ACT LIKE A LADY! Yeah, that’s right. I get that Miley doesn’t want to be a role model for anyone and yada, yada, yada but dude, you have a little sister. What the hell kind of a role model are you to her? Not a very good one. Put some clothes on, stick your tongue back in your fucking mouth, and get some class.
  • Reevaluate your career…seriously: People might be curious as to why young people, like myself, despise Cyrus so much and the answer is simple…She’s literally giving the teens and twenty-somethings across the globe a bad name. FYI – not every millennial is a sex crazed druggie with a fetish for putting their assets on display every chance they get. I can’t name one person in my vast social circle in real life or via social media who likes her, so clearly she’s doing nothing right with her career. #obviously
  • Drop the “I’m cool because I smoke weed” act: You’re not. Do I have a problem with people who smoke? No, absolutely not and I firmly believe that marijuana should be legalized in all fifty states. Do I have a problem with people who flaunt their habits for the world to see? Yes, I do. It’s trashy and NO ONE CARES!!! Those who partake in good ol’ Mary Jane are no cooler than the people who don’t. Put your joint away and shut the fuck up. Thanks! ❀
  • Get back in touch with your roots: Yeah, we get it – you’re too old for the Disney channel, hence why you’ve been flashing your cooch for everyone. BUT, before Miley turned into the most Shameful Specimen that I can think of, she was sweet, wholesome, and had a lot of people looking up to her. Cyrus claims that she’s “all grown up” but she has so much maturing to do that it’s not even funny. No sane grown up would enter into a concert venue on a giant inflatable penis. Such trash.

^^^ Lol, it seemed appropriate! πŸ˜‰

So do I sound bitchy? Probably. Do I care? Absolutely not. I REFUSE to ever be associated with the crass classlessness that is Miley Cyrus merely because we’re in the same age group. Cyrus should take a lesson from all of the teens and twenty-somethings that are out in the world making amazing things happen because of sheer talent and hard work – not because ninety-seven percent of their clothes is off. What does everyone think of Miley? Who is one celebrity that you really can’t stand? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

PS: Sorry for the rant, but I really had to get these feelings off of my chest. I was seriously so disgusted by the VMA outfit pics that I wanted to throw up everywhere! πŸ™‚

Busted, Disgusted, Never to be Trusted

Busted, Disgusted, Never to be Trusted

So I was browsing on http://www.elle.com yesterday night to find some new fashion ideas and ended up in a world of disgust from this page: http://www.elle.com/news/fashion-style/accessory-du-jour-hyein-seo-fear-mink-stoles-1

If you don’t feel like looking at the article, at least check out the picture that the article was about:

elle-accessory-du-jour-blog

These mink stoles were featured in designer Hyein Seo’s collection. As a HUGE animal rights advocate, vegetarian of over eleven years, and a gal who puts her foot down to wearing any type of non man made material – I am horrified. Anyone who thinks that wearing the fur of an animal who was tortured and mutilated is okay, can go ahead and stop reading my post now. The use of fur in the name of “fashion” is absolutely ludicrous. The minks that were used in the stoles in Seo’s collection more than likely came from a fur farm. It pains me too much to even retype some of the methods of murder used in the fashion industries personal hells on earth. If you’d like to further educate yourself, I highly recommend checking these websites out: http://www.bornfreeusa.org/a2_fashion.php and http://www.peta.org/issues/animals-used-for-clothing/animals-used-clothing-factsheets/inside-fur-industry-factory-farms/.

So many people refuse to wear cosmetic products not tested on animals, and the same should go for clothing as well. Every fashion designer who used fur or exotic skins in his or her collection is contributing to the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of animals per year. Shoppers and fashion enthusiasts alike need to show compassion towards our sweet animal friends. Maybe then the blood of millions of little creatures will begin to wash off the hands of big names in fashion such as Burberry, Alexander Wang, and Valentino to name a few.

Be a friend to animals and buy fur free. Buy non animal tested products. Sign petitions to give the fur industry what for! Be kind to every thing with a beating heart. -Sarah
