What Is My Problem with Men? I Want to Know What Is Mens Problem with Me

*Content warning: Survivors of sexual violence, harassment and abuse may find parts of this post upsetting*Id spent weeks chatting to him on MSN, texting him while the teachers back was turned and curling up under my duvet, whispering secrets to him through my Motorola flip phone.Even though wed never met, he called himself my boyfriend. I was 15 and he was 18. He offered to beat up the kids whod been picking on me at school. He said hed drive me to Alton Towers on my birthday. He told me all about the job he had that most people would consider heroic.We arranged to meet up and go to the cinema together. I wore jeans, a navy blue vest top from H&M, a red Bench jacket, a pair of Nike trainers, and a gold necklace with a J on it.When we met in Manchesters Piccadilly Gardens, he told me that hed forgotten his wallet and didnt have enough money to pay for the cinema.Come to my house instead, he suggested, before telling me that his mum would be home and shed make us some food.

I said no. I knew how ridiculous it would be to go back to the house of a guy Id just met and I didnt particularly want to meet his mum. I offered to pay for his cinema ticket using money Id earned from my paper round but he wouldnt take no for an answer. In the end, I gave in. I didnt want to let him down or waste all the time wed spent getting to know one another.

I convinced myself I had nothing to worry about. I probably wont get murdered, I thought to myself, as I handed my change to the driver and the bus set off for a town in East Manchester Id never been to before.When we arrived at his house, it quickly became clear that his mum wasnt home. He held my hand and took me to his room. Closing the door behind me, he immediately began tugging at my clothes. When I protested, he said: If you dont do exactly what I say, Ill throw you out with no clothes and no shoes on.Even though I cried and I begged him to stop and I pleaded with him to let me go home, I convinced myself that what happened was my own fault and that I was nothing more than a cheap slag whod put out on the first date.

*That summer, I left school and started working at a supermarket part-time. A few months into the job, an episode of The Simpsons was on the TV in the break room. It was the episode where Marge turns up at the power plant and Homer sweeps her off her feet before yelling to his workmates: Im going to the backseat of my car with the woman I love and I wont be back for 10 minutes!A man I worked with but had never spoken to before called out to me: What does he mean by that?What? I replied.

Can you explain the joke, please? Why is he taking her to his car?Silence.Erm I I think you know what it means.Yes, but I want you to say it.I I looked around the room for help but all the other middle aged men either looked down at their phones or continued to turn the pages of their newspapers. I felt like I was invisible to everyone but him. I wondered whether this conversation was only taking place in my head.How old are you? He asked, after what felt like an eternity of silence.16Youre 16 and you cant say the word sex?My face was burning up and I wanted the ground to swallow me whole. I was filled with rage but I couldnt work out why.When I went back to college the next day, I told my friend Tom what had happened.Why didnt you just say sex? He asked.I dont know, I replied. I was just so embarrassed.He didnt know what the man had done wrong and to tell you the truth, I didnt really know either. I asked Tom if his dad would ever speak to a girl like that. He shrugged and looked at me in silence.I know that my dad would never speak to a 16-year-old girl like that, I said.I worked at the supermarket for 7 years and the man  who Im guessing was at least 20 years older than me  continued to bother me for most of my time there. Sometimes wed cross paths in the crisp aisle and hed tell me to walk in front of him so he could watch my arse move. You have a bigone...for a white girl, he said.On Saturday evenings, hed corner me alone in the break room to ask me personal questions about my sex life. One time, he picked up a copy of The Sun, opened it at Page 3, and began stroking the models breasts and pretending to lick her. It was so cringe-worthy that Id have been embarrassed for him if I wasnt so intimidated. Whenever he approached me, Id freeze and go silent. One time, I mustered the courage to tell him to off. He leaned over and with his face close to mine he whispered thats not very polite, is it?After a few years of trying my best to ignore him, I told some of my colleagues what was going on.Youre only bothered because youre into all this feminist shit now, one of them said. Stop taking it so seriously. Youre overreacting.I started to wonder if they were right.*When I was 20, I started dating a 29-year-old and I couldnt believe my luck. He was intelligent and would proof-read my essays. He was generous and would pay for most of my meals and drinks. He was softly spoken and thoughtful. He had a large group of friends. He had his shit together.We must have been dating for a couple of months when he began to change. He called me stupid. He called me pathetic. He called me an attention seeker. Hed put me down until I got upset or angry and then hed spin things around so that Id be the one to apologise.Id arrive at his apartment block and stare at my reflection in the lift. Dont it up, Id tell myself. If you dont do or say anything stupid, he cant have a go at you.

Id plead with myself not to it up. My heart would be pounding and tears would sully my freshly applied mascara. Id send the lift back down again until Id composed myself. But no matter how hard I tried, I always ed it up. Hed always find something to shout at me for.Sometimes Id leave in the middle of the night before returning a few hours later with my tail between my legs.

I knew youd come crawling back, he said.I told him a watered-down version of what happened to me when I was 15 but he didnt believe me. He suggested I was making it up for attention. I decided he was probably right.

I never feared for my safety, but the fact I could walk away and leave at any time is precisely what made me stay. Its not like hes hitting me, I said to myself.One morning I awoke to find his arm wrapped tightly around me and his face nuzzled tenderly into my neck. I was desperate for the toilet but I didnt want to leave him. It had become so rare for him to show me any affection that I wanted to cherish this moment and lap up every second of intimacy even if he was fast asleep. I lay there savouring his touch and praying my bladder wouldnt let me down. Eventually I couldnt take it any longer and I gently lifted his arm from my body before rushing to the toilet. When I climbed back into bed, I put my arm around his waist. He immediately batted it away. Get off, he said.When my grandmother died, I messaged him to let him know that Id lost her.

I didnt hear from him for weeks. When he eventually got in touch, I asked where the hell hed been when I needed him.He suggested I was using my grandmothers death for attention. Again, I decided he was probably right.*At the age of 26, I fell asleep on the bus on my way home from work. When I woke up, I felt something touching my left breast. I looked down and realised it was the hand of the man sat behind me.I looked over my shoulder and his face felt very close to mine. I looked him in the eyes. He looked right back at me but kept his hand exactly where it was.I looked down at his hand again and mentally confirmed that it was indeed, resting on my breast. It was as if I was taking a mental snapshot so that I wouldnt doubt or question my own sanity later. I needed to be 100% sure.

Will you move your hand, please? I asked. I was amazed that the words left my mouth with such confidence and authority.He snatched his hand away.I told the bus driver what had happened but the man insisted it was an accident. He looked me in the eyes and kept insisting he didnt do it on purpose. I started to worry that I was wrong. I imagined him having a girlfriend or wife. I imagined him having kids. I imagined ruining his life. I had to remind myself that just minutes earlier Id been 100% sure. I felt his hand. I saw his hand. He was lying; not me.

That night I contacted the police and some weeks later I received a phone call to say that theyd found the man responsible. Hed done it to another woman on the bus too.Waiting to go into the court room in March 2017, I thought about telling my police officer what happened to me when I was 15. I still didnt know the word for what happened, but it was something that had been eating away at me for years. I wanted an answer. I wanted closure.Just tell him his name, I said to myself. Just say his name and see if hes done anything else.

I couldnt bring myself to say the words but little did I know that just a few months later, hed be in court too. Little did I know that hed be found guilty of sexually exploiting a 14-year-old girl in 2015 and possessing indecent images of children  almost a decade after what he did to me.*In February this year, I Googled his name and saw what he did.

Id Googled his name dozens of times before. Id looked through his tweets and Id looked for him on Facebook, but I never found evidence to suggest he was anything other than a regular guy with friends, a family, a dog, and a job that was, in many peoples eyes, heroic.But as I stared at his mugshot online and read about the other thing that hed done, all the memories of that day in 2006 came flooding back. Finally, I knew that this and all the things to happen since werent my fault. I wasnt imagining them. I wasnt overreacting. All these things happened and they were just as bad as I thought they were.I remembered him pushing my naked body up in front of the window after Id begged him to close the curtains. I remembered him taking my clothes from me so I couldnt run away when I went to the bathroom. I remembered thinking that maybe if I did it really badly I wouldnt get asked to do it again like the dishes. I remembered him lying on top of me and saying: Im not going to rape you, Jenni.

I picked up the phone and finally, after 12 years, I called the police. I tried to condense all my thoughts into a succinct explanation. I still didnt know the proper word for what happened to me. Was it assault? Was it abuse?An officer came to visit me that same day and he took a statement. It was only then, when I told him the details of what happened, that I learned that what happened to me was rape.Id spent years flicking between telling myself that I was the problem and thinking that maybe Id made it all up in my head. Taking responsibility for the things that happened to me became a way of coping.But now, as I finally said every single horrible detail out loud for the first time, it became clear to me that I was not the problem and I never had been.*I have more stories but if I listed all the horrible things Id experienced as a result of mens actions, wed be here all day.

Its true that only a very small number of the men Ive encountered throughout my life have done these awful things. As far as Im aware, most of the men I know are not rapists, abusers or perverts who grab boobs on buses.However, one thing that most of the so-called good men I know have in common is that, while they arent raping or abusing us, theyre doing nothing to stop the men who are.

Desmond Tutu famously said that if youre silent in situations of injustice, youve chosen the side of the oppressor. And I feel thats certainly the case here.Even some of my closest male friends are quicker to pick holes in my feminist rants than they are to question the misogynist actions of other men.

Im exhausted. Im so tired of fighting. Ive been carrying the weight of these things for so many years and its devastating how little the men in my life are doing to try to help women like me. So many women have shared their #MeToo stories in the last year and its good that our voices are finally being heard, but the silence of the so-called good guys is deafening.I want men to be heroic and to stand up for women and to show that they care for us as much as we care for them. But I repeatedly feel let down. Sometimes I wonder if I should lower my expectations but I think you can probably see from the stories Ive shared above that my bar is pretty ing low. Ive repeatedly tried to overlook the inhumane actions of menIveencountered. Despite the things that have happened to me, I keep dating men, I keep kissing men, I keep sleeping with men, and I keep loving men.

When I talk about the importance of the #MeToo movement, when I tweet about toxic masculinity, when I share articles about gender inequality, Im asked why I hate men. But almost everything leading up to this point in my life has me wondering why men hate me

Does UVC light penetrate duvets and pillows?

I believe similar to sunlight, if the intensity of the UV light can penetrate the object I presume the radiation will also.. But may only be effectively killing the bacteria on the surface.. With UVC radiation the bacteria that needs to be irradiated must be exposed for at least 10 seconds at a distance of 6 inches to be effectively neutralized and disabled. .Duvets and pillows being thick I don't believe the UVC light can penetrate and pass through to disinfect them.. Another problem is, the UVC radiation is also subject to the inverse square law, which means that intensity and radiation strength loses its power 4X time when the distance between the source and he object is doubled!Does UVC light penetrate duvets and pillows?

New! Creative Ideas on Choosing Your Window Covering Style
New! Creative Ideas on Choosing Your Window Covering Style
Window coverings have a process on how you should choose your window curtains and drapes. You have three basic choices to decide from on what window treatment is best for your homes decor. You first have to decide whether you want informal or formal window coverings? Secondly unlined or lined? And thirdly the style and type of heading desired. After you have decided on the type of window treatment you are looking for you can start to finalize the design. Window coverings are influenced by several elements, which include the function of the space, the style of the architecture of the home, and the window treatment preferences of the homeowner. The resulting factor is the same window design can be treated very differently depending on the person's taste. Imagine a dining room that has a bay window. This type of window style is usually a multi layered floor length window treatment - basically it's a formal window covering. If your taste is a more casual laid-back style you may introduce an informal appearance of café curtains with some sill length and some tied back side panels.What is a full formal window treatment? A formal window covering usually will have two or three layers. The first layer may be the casement curtain and will be installed within your Windows trim area. Usually you would use a sheer, solid or maybe a lace panel that will lay straight or either gathered at the top. Over draperies usually called just draperies will be your second layer. Generally they will cover the trim and window and if there is room left stretched further to each side or even the area that is above your window. Optionally the third layer of your full formal window treatment will be a valance this is also known as pelnet that horizontally runs across the top of your window and will cover the curtain or drapery heading. Another piece of the formal window treatment is a hard valance, also known as a lanbre-quin or a cornice. It is normally made with wood, which is then covered with upholstery or some fabric. To some people by not using the third treatment it will appear like the window covering is unfinished but in all sense this depends on the taste and style that you are trying to obtain. By using heavy but curious fabrics which would include brocades, Tapestries, silks, Damasks and velvet you will enhance the prestige of the formal treatment. The downside of these fabrics is that they will require cleaning from professionals every couple of years. What is an Informal window treatment?An informal window treatment can consist of one or two basic layers or you may decide on having nothing at all. If you have a great window location with privacy a beautiful window can look great even without a dressing especially if you have a great view. Sometimes just some basic casement curtains look great for a casual room. If you need to cover only the lower half of the window a Café curtain can offer you privacy and not block the light. Fabrics that are used for the informal look consist of chitz, ticking, linen, muslin and gingham. A benefit to the informal window coverings over the formal window coverings is that most of these are washable and easy to take care of. Window drapes and curtain linings Depending whether you have a formal or informal curtain or drape covering it will often decide if your window treatment will be lined. Factors will include the amount of natural light you want in your room and the length of time you expect the arrangement will last. Unlined curtains diffuse daylight but won't exclude it. Being the simplest form for your window covering it is still very effective by itself as a window under treatment. The unlined treatment doesn't have the extra thickness of a lining and will stack lightly back. A good choice is to use a fabric that looks attractive from both sides so there will not be a right or wrong side for the inside or outside of your window covering. Classic choices for unlined treatments would consist of lace, mobile, Muslim and sheers that are made out of cotton or silk organza. You may even have textured fabrics that have open weaves; an unlined curtain will filter the light beautifully and give you some privacy in the evening when the lamp is on. Try consolidating sheers with window blinds and shades. Unlined curtain drawbacks are the damage from the sunlight on the window treatment because there is no lining for your window fabric for protection it will deteriorate rapidly. Lined curtains and drapes Lined curtains and drapes have more body, which will give you softer and deeper folds and improve the window treatment appearance. The lining will block sunlight and protect the window fabric from fading. A lining also preserves the color and increases your privacy and will reduce noise from outside. Look for linings that are treated to resist sun damage and rot, once the lining becomes deteriorated you can just realign it or just hang the window covering without the lining on. The rule of thumb is that if you line one curtain in the room do all the rest the same so they will match, Usually the lining fabric will be off-white or white although you can get colored linings you should know that this will affect the hue of the window covering when light passes through it especially in a lightweight curtain fabric get samples and test them together for a color change.
Gael Monfils Get Unofficial Towel During Rafa Nadal Match ...
Gael Monfils Get Unofficial Towel During Rafa Nadal Match ...
From the exact order he towels himself down after each point to how his water bottles are placed on the sidelines, Rafael Nadal is famous for his rituals on the tennis court.But it was his French opponent Gael Monfils who drew attention on Monday night with a bizarre display of his own.After going to a quick break of serve down at 2-0 in the first set, Monfils made his way over to the umpire's chair where he requested a new set of towels.Not just any towels, however, he requested a set of non-regulation white bath towels, and asked the ball boy to have them ready by the end of the next service game.It is not clear why Monfils had a problem with the game towels, though 7 commentator Lleyton Hewitt suggested several possibly explanations.'Sometimes players prefer to use the white towel when they're out there,' he said.'Sometimes the fluff from the new tournament towels comes off.'Jim Courier added that the tournament towels often do not absorb sweat very well, which makes sense, considering the high humidity in Melbourne at the time.Temperatures had reached 36C in the city during the day, but as night fell and rain was forecast, humidity jumped above 80 per cent.The rain threat also forced tournament bosses to close the roof, further upping the temperature inside the arena.Monfils was not the only one suffering in the heat - Nadal was also dripping with sweat from the first game on, with Twitter users describing him as 'leaking like a tap.'In fact the sweat issue became so bad at one point that one of the ball boys had to towel it off the line close to where he was serving.To the Spaniard's credit, he did acknowledge the volunteer's effort, patting them on the back as they completed the thankless task.Monfils also received his request of white bath towels, but they did not appear to help him, as he lost the first set 6-3, having failed to recover from the early break.The second set went the same way, with Nadal triumphing 6-3, before a comeback by Monfils in the third, which went to him 6-4.He also threatened to take the fourth, breaking Nadal earlier on, but the former world number one battled back to claim it 6-4.Nadal will now play No. 3 seed Milos Raonic, who he lost to in Brisbane earlier this month, in the quarterfinal.

An Introduction to fuzzy bathrobeKamarion,Whoa! Hold your horses young lad. If you want to be Marine infantry you should have no trouble for Marines ARE infantry. They are amphibious infantry who specialize in going ashore and holding a beach against overwhelming opposition. And if you are a Marine you ARE on the front lines even if you are in a combat support role.But for now I would recommend reading everything you can get your hands on about American History, World History, and Military History. The more you read the better you will write. If you write really well you will succeed in any walk of life.Work on your math. If you want to enlist you will have to take the ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery). If you ace the math section you will qualify for many technical specialities.There is a stereotype about combat officers, promoted by MASH, that they are brutal war hawks who love sending young men into the "jaws of death." Sometimes this is true as when generals in WW1 "tried to defeat the machine gun with young men's chests" as George Will has written. But in most cases, military officers have been serious intellectuals who have dedicated their lives to studying the "art of war."There is also the wisecrack that "military intelligence is an oxymoron." We just saw how an odd duck in a bathrobe and fuzzy slippers like LCDR Joe Rocheford determined that the Japanese fleet was headed for Midway.So, Kamarion, lay off the war movies and hit the books. I read years ago that the Marine Corps has a reading list of classics in military science that enlisted men and women are expected to study in their off duty hours. I don't know if they still require this but if they do you will be ahead of the game. Put down the cell phone and get to the library.This whole "kneading" cat thing, what is up with my cat? of fuzzy bathrobeI also have a cat who does this, and it might be because of the texture of the robe. We have a soft fuzzy blanket, and the working theory is that he was taken away from his mom too young; one of the other things kneading does is it's basically a 'milking' motion. Because the blanket is so soft and fuzzy - and maybe too because the person under it is so nice and warm - for these once-abandoned kitties, they have some sort of strange notion that the person is 'mom', and the kneading and 'chewing' is the act of feeding. I really don't know how you would stop this, except to get a bathrobe made out of a less fur-like material, like waffle weave or silk or something. I have baby kittens right now who do the same thing with my (fuzzy) bathrobe - but they're so cute I don't mindMy dad needs ideas for my moms of fuzzy bathrobeMom gifts can be tough (especially for Dads) The best thing my husband ever got me was a two day vacation to the beach (Halfmoon Bay in Cali) he got the room and had it decorated with candles and flowers and had my favorite book sitting on the bed.It was relaxing and EXACTLY a Moms paradise....two days to bubble bath and read or watch a movie and just veg out.I know this is not the cheap route but it was by far the best gift I have gotten....A little more cost reasonable would be a fuzzy bathrobe in her fav color with bath salts or bath beads and lotion with a CD of rainforrest or nature music to lock herself in the bath and relax.... put it all in a basket and wrap it....OR-Simply write her a letter telling her all the wonderful qualities she has and why you adore and appreciate her with a gift card to her fav place to shop so she can get herself something without possibly being dissappointed.DEFINATELY DO NOT............ get her an animal, or any living thing that she will have to care for, any appliances ie; blender, vacumm (even if she said in November that she really wanted it), lingerie (women hate this for Christmas- it is a valentines day type thing) or clothes- it is best to let her shop for herself).Hope that helped!
Why Supermarket Chiller Aisles May soon Not Be so Chilly
Why Supermarket Chiller Aisles May soon Not Be so Chilly
Have you ever gone food shopping on a lovely hot day only to be turned into an icicle walking past the supermarket's open chiller cabinets?Suddenly that shorts and T-shirt combo doesn't seem like such a smart idea as you dive in to grab your organic yoghurts.Well all that chilly discomfort could soon be history thanks to a gadget inspired by Formula 1 racing cars.The device is basically a thin strip of aluminium and plastic shaped like a wing that is attached to the front of the cabinet shelves. "The aerofoil acts like the rear wing of an F1 car and guides the air to create an air curtain," explains Craig Wilson, managing director of Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE)."It stops cold air spilling out into the stores."The strip, a result of a collaboration between WAE, the offshoot of the Williams F1 team, and Aerofoil Energy, may look simple, but it could save supermarkets millions in refrigeration costs.UK supermarket chain Sainsbury's is so impressed it has decided to fit the aerofoils in as many of its 1,400 supermarkets and convenience stores as it can."My wife used to moan at me incessantly about the cold when she went shopping at our local store," says Paul Crewe, Sainsbury's head of sustainability."But after we fitted the aerofoils she thought we'd turned the heating up." Of course, it's not just about customer comfort. The supermarket chain's annual electricity bill is "in the hundreds of millions of pounds", he says, and refrigeration accounts for about half of that.Fitting the aerofoils is reducing the chain's refrigeration costs by up to 15%, says Mr Crewe - a potential annual saving of nearly £10m."By looking outside of our industry, and borrowing technology from an industry that is renowned for its speed and efficiency, we are accelerating how we are reducing the impact on the environment, whilst making shopping in Sainsbury's stores a more comfortable experience," he says.But why do we have open chiller cabinets in the first place? Wouldn't cabinets with doors be much more efficient?"Consumers didn't like having to open and close doors on fridges, so we needed a new solution," argues Mr Crewe.But Myles McCarthy, director of implementation at the Carbon Trust, a sustainability consultancy that does a lot of work with supermarkets, suspects this has more to do with marketing."They think we'll buy less if there's a barrier between the products and the consumer," he says.While he welcomes the aerofoil innovation, he says: "This is just a stop-gap. The best way to reduce energy consumption is to put sliding or pull-out doors on all their fridges - this could cut electricity usage by 30%-40%."He thinks all the leading supermarkets should get together and all agree to put doors on their fridges by a certain date.This would "achieve their sustainability goals and save a lot of money," he argues, "and then they wouldn't lose competitive advantage."But in the fiercely competitive, price-driven world of supermarket retailing, it's hard to see such consensus breaking out any time soon. One of the problems with refrigeration - apart from the high electricity consumption - is that the traditional coolants used - hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) - are extremely polluting greenhouse gases that inevitably leak into the atmosphere, contributing to global warming.So there are moves within the industry to switch to natural refrigerants based, ironically, on carbon dioxide (CO2), another greenhouse gas.But these natural CO2 alternatives are a thousand times less polluting than HFCs and HCFCs.Earlier this year, German discount supermarket group Aldi announced that it was spending £20m on installing natural refrigerants across all of its UK stores to reduce its environmental impact.Tesco, the largest UK supermarket chain, says it has reduced its refrigerant emissions by 14% since 2015/16.Of course, this is a global issue.Last year in Rwanda, nearly 200 countries agreed to amend the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer and begin phasing out HFCs.Supermarkets in general have been trying to reduce their energy consumption and carbon footprints in a number of ways to combat global warming.For example, Sainsbury's is switching 250,000 lights to lower-energy LED fittings in its larger stores, slashing lighting energy consumption by 58% and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 3.4% annually, the company says.Others have been making greater use of natural light, fitting solar panels on to store roofs, and working with suppliers to reduce their energy consumption.Tesco has committed to running entirely on renewable energy in the UK and Ireland by the end of this year, and worldwide by 2030. "A food retail business could reduce its energy use by 20%-40% just by implementing a range of existing technologies," says Mr McCarthy. "These companies are committing to significant long-term decarbonisation of their businesses and to the use of renewables - which is very encouraging."
