Statistically, a woman is more likely to be hurt by a man than she is to ever be eaten by a shark, hit by a car, be attacked by a bear, crash in a plane, or be bitten by a spider. When a woman expresses fear of any of these events, she is still seen as a rational person. When I tell people that I am afraid of swimming in the ocean because I’m afraid of sharks, they accept it almost without question. But, when I tell people that I’m afraid of men, that men scare me more than sharks and spiders and freak plane accidents all combined, I immediately lose their respect. I am considered elitist. I am considered sub-human.

I decided that my circumstance was severe enough to start a gofundme campaign. Please take a moment to read my current situation.

 I’m Ashley. I’m a 20 year old animation student in Atlanta Georgia. When I started college almost 4 years ago, I thought my time here would fly by easily. Unfortunately, during the winter break of my first year at SCAD, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The numbness in my feet and hands meant that I had to drop art classes and take lectures instead. I’ve accepted that I have to get through school at my own pace and that “graduating on time” doesn’t really have a meaning for me. 

Since my diagnosis, I’ve lived in constant stress over bills. I have no health insurance. I do not come from a wealthy family. I’ve had trouble keeping any minimum wage job because of my health. My parents still receive my hospital bills from several years ago and they’ve been slowly paying them off and deferring my student loan payments. 

Recently, I’ve experienced an attack similar to a heart attack. Considering my age and the fact that I haven’t had any sort of treatment for my MS in months, the doctors at the ER agreed it was more of a musculoskeletal problem than anything affecting my heart. Regardless, many tests were run on me during the countless hours I was at that hospital and I fear the bills that the trip to the ER have created. 

My girlfriend and I are both unemployed and I am too weak and unable to provide any sort of work for money. 

So I’m here asking for help.

More information about my situation and how to help can be found on my Gofundme campaign.

I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -

Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.

Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.

If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.

And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.

Drew some armor with my KCAI buddy Zoe Van Djik, and then I ran some errands. I got called a chink while crossing the street near Washington Square Park, and then 30 minutes later I got interviewed by a guy from WNYC about what I thought about how Ebola was being covered in the media.
