"LET us go then, you and I,
When the evening is spread out against the sky
Like a patient etherized upon a table;
Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets,"

These are forms of male aggression that only women see. But even when men are afforded a front seat to harassment, they don’t always have the correct vantage point for recognizing the subtlety of its operation. Four years before the murders, I was sitting in a bar in Washington, D.C. with a male friend. Another young woman was alone at the bar when an older man scooted next to her. He was aggressive, wasted, and sitting too close, but she smiled curtly at his ramblings and laughed softly at his jokes as she patiently downed her drink. ‘Why is she humoring him?’ my friend asked me. ‘You would never do that.’ I was too embarrassed to say: ‘Because he looks scary’ and ‘I do it all the time.’

Women who have experienced this can recognize that placating these men is a rational choice, a form of self-defense to protect against setting off an aggressor. But to male bystanders, it often looks like a warm welcome, and that helps to shift blame in the public eye from the harasser and onto his target, who’s failed to respond with the type of masculine bravado that men more easily recognize.

do you ever go to the mall and spend $100 on gotg themed t-shirts right before the midnight screening of the gotg movie and your bank account cries because it’s steadily depleting and then you cry because when did comic books become so important to you that you spend thousands of dollars on merchandise in the past two years

Victor can’t help burst out laughing at her choice of words for encouraging himself. “I generally only resort to that sort of language when I’m well and truly angry, but I’ll keep that in mind,” he promises. “And I swear, I’m not like this all the time. It just — flares up every so often.” He pauses, considers that a moment. “That makes my feelings about my parents sound like a bad rash.”

"Really? People put sweaters on their pets?" Victor’s never heard of this before, but it sounds downright adorable. He tries to picture his crew wearing sweaters. "Now I’m going to have to resist the urge to see if any would fit these three — especially Moonlight." He picks up the fire lizard, transferring him to his shoulder. "Though I doubt I’d find anything that would accommodate your wings."

Helena smiles as he lightens up. “Good. That kind of language is incredibly foul and should only be used when you’re angry— or in pain. Physical pain.” Helena adds, rubbing Victor’s arm. ” I know you’re not like this, I just don’t like seeing it when your emotions towards your parents take over— in a sense their bad past with you is a rash. It’s hard to get rid of and sometime can be very overwhelming. Just keep in mind that I, as well as your friends and family, are here to help get rid of it.”

"It’s kind of adorable but pets don’t seem to like it all to much." Helena replies, watching him pick up the dragon-lizard from her shoulder. "I’m sure you can cut holes to fit his wings through and let him fly around in the little sweater." Helena pets Petri, trying to picture her in a little sweater- tube thing.
