impulse bought myself a new toy

"Nobody has the right to turn out and tell me that I can’t wear a certain outfit, that I can’t go out to a certain place because I would be safer, or because a man looks at me…"

"what was she wearing?"
"was she drunk?"
"did she sleep around?"

here’s the thing: rape happens regardless of these factors.  that’s why it’s happened for centuries and that’s why it also happens to men, children, and people of all ages.  rape is not about sex.  it’s about exerting power over someone.  stop protecting rapists.

Fun fact: if you approach an employee and insist that they go ‘check the back’ for an item that’s not on the shelf, there is a 90% chance that they’ll go to the back room, scratch their ass and check their text messages for five minutes, and come back out with a sympathetic smile and a ‘Sorry!’ because they know without even looking that the stock isn’t there.

Or the old “can you ask a manager?”

As a retail employee, I can verify that this is 100% accurate.

I have to tell customers like 5-10 times a day that we keep everything out on the sales floor. Which we do. And then sometimes they still don’t believe me.

I work in a warehouse with “warehouse” in the title of the store, and people still ask me to look “out the back”. NO!

we used to literally put the overstock above the stacked items. if we were out of stock they could clearly see for themselves if we had more in store or not. i still had to go through this with every customer
