The MCAT is totally being redone for 2015 and I’ve been looking into the changes and at the moment all I feel is fear and anxiety. I already paid another $2000 for another Kaplan course because I really need this time to be THE time.

I’m scared of the unknown aspect of not only the test, but how medical schools will evaluate us on something so new. All in all, being a guinea pig is going to be rough…

Wish me luck, friends, I’m going to need it.

You’re going to kill it, you badass

He does something to me, that boy. Every time. It’s his only detriment. He steps on my heart. He makes me cry.

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.
