mis·an·ther·a·py (n.) — therapy for misanthropes

I'm just, ya know, trying to stop hating mankind so much.

Anyway, I'm Cat, a 22-year-old weirdo with a taste for absurdity. My dream is to make fun of myself for a living and to become Beyonce. In the meantime, I'm trying to increase my smarts at Berkeley as an English major and an arts writer for the school newspaper. But my smarts only seem to go to my ass.

I mostly reblog stuff, but I'll occasionally link to articles I've written.

If you like posts involving nostalgia, indie music, cats, Pokemon, anime, smoking, feminism, androgyny, existentialism, rain, kitsch, inappropriate jokes, aesthetic theory, and/or hot men, you're in the right place. Otherwise, GIT OUT!

Just thought I’d share this charming piece of graffiti from near my home.
By the way, this is the ONLY women’s library in the country, it has only women’s work in it and also serves as a sort of feminist museum. They’re affiliated with a university close by and hold regular events such as workshops and talks on subjects like the poetry of immigrant women of colour or the representation of mental health in women’s literature. Its also due to be closed down by the Conservatives.

Can men go in and borrow books written by women?

Yeah, totally, they even do events for men by women on intro to feminism, rape culture stuff sometimes!

god forbid women have a single fucking thing without men getting jealous like fucking children
