when people say years young instead of years old
In January, Sam Pepper uploaded a video called “How To Get A Girlfriend Easy” in which he sneaks up behind or beside unsuspecting women on the street and handcuffs them to himself. He then tells them they’re “his girlfriend now.”
When one victim reacts furiously, saying “No! I don’t know you! Take it off!” and demands that he remove the handcuffs, he refuses and replies with “We’re dating now.” She tries again, “Look, I don’t know where you’re from, but we don’t do this in America. Take this off,” while fighting with the cuffs. He refuses again, insisting they’re “going on a date.” She then tells him that she’s married, to which he says “No, you’re married to me now,” and refuses yet again to remove the handcuffs.
At the end of the video, another woman is pleading with him to undo the handcuffs, and he refuses to until she kisses him on the lips. Pepper appears to think the entire scenario is hilarious at best and endearingly misguided at worst, while the women being “pranked” are visibly livid, terrified, and profoundly uncomfortable.
NONE OF THESE THINGS ARE PRANKS.
We need to stop calling assault by white men on men of color and women of all races “pranks,” because it makes them seem lighthearted and fun, not like the violent criminal acts they are.
OMG Like the 3rd girl’s reaction! Holy shit. She called him out for the legality of this and he KEEPS going.
REMINDER: if you have a vagina and want to use Plan B as an emergency contraceptive, it loses effectiveness if you weigh more than 165 lbs (74.84 kg) and is completely ineffective for those that weight more than 176 lbs (79.83 kg) (x)
Let me spread the shit out of this.
This is horrifying. And sadly true.
Soooo you’re telling me that I one time wasted $50 on this shit because it doesn’t work form me?
Like I just touched my roots and they are so soft.
So I am about to wash my hair for day 1. I am not going to go full no shampoo tonight, as my hair is super oily from the weekend already as I never fully wash my hair on weekends to give it a break from the week.
I’ll summarize what my hair washing schedule is already before starting this journey. I wash my hair Monday/Wednesday/Friday. I don’t condition my hair every time I wash it, only on special days.
My goal for no poo washing will be that I wash my hair Sunday and Wednesday as most sites that I’ve done my research on says 3-5 days.
I trimmed my hair to get rid of spilt ends. I still should have cut it more but I wasn’t willing to lose too much length. Part of my desire for doing this so that it grows longer and healthier than it does now.
I’ll post after and first thoughts after I shower.
