6 Months of Grief Project: Day 139

Navigating the Patriarchy is Exhausting

This is Day 139 of my #6MonthsOfGrief Project. To learn more about this practice, feel free to visit Day One, where I explain this project in more detail.

Online dating is THE WORST. Being a strong, powerful, openly sexual, over 40, fat feminist in the wild, gross seas of hook-ups, Bro Dudes and Hustlers is exhausting. The sexism of our patriarchal culture is alive and well on the Internet, and no matter how quickly I jab and move, I seem to still get stung by slut-shamers, liars and cold-hearted conquerers. Just like I wish there was a Widow Island, where we could all retreat for at least a year, I wish there was some sort of Widow Stud Stable of kind gentleman that could show a lady a good time without having to lie, cheat and hustle. Why can't we all just be honest with each other? Why are we all so broken?


I am very aware that this project can bring up a lot around yours or other's grief and loss, I will always follow every post with some online grief support resources that have helped me. Please feel free to let me know of online support that you have found healing in your grief, as well:

Living with Grief Resources:

And remember, I am sharing this project on a variety of platforms, including my InstagramTwitter, & Facebook feeds, as well as my Pinterest page on Grief. I use the hashtag #6MonthsOfGrief, so it can easily be found on any platform. Please share this project with anyone you think might need it.

Thank you, and see you tomorrow.
