A 14 year-old boy was recently raped at knife-point by a 20 year-old woman. When the story broke, it was primarily men who claimed he should have enjoyed it. It was feminists who validated his pain and spoke in support of him.

Okay, I have this problem with entering contests. But, I mainly do contests because I’m getting paid barely above minimum wage, work 27 hours a week, and have to pay for school somehow.
And so, I know the amount of contests I compete in probably makes it less likely for people to help me. And that’s okay. People don’t need to help me. But, I do my best to help other people in similar situations, so I at least feel relatively justified in annoying people.
Anyway, my college sent me this contest to win $250 for school. That’s half my second installment of my tuition, so it’s a decent chunk of change. All I have to do is get 100 people to sign up for some social media community. It takes less than a minute to sign up, so I feel like this shouldn’t be that difficult.
But, it is. Because I don’t want to bug people. Because I’ve bugged people before. So, I’ll start with bugging some of my closer online friends and Tumblr and see where that gets me.
Between work, school, comics, and coaching, I’ve been very stressed out, and this contest is adding a stupid amount of stress to it. I don’t know why. I am very type A, so this just feels like another task I need to complete, and it’s hard to complete it.
Enough rambling. My community is located here: http://www.kumbuya.com/puns/
You can keep track of my progress in the contest here: http://www.kumbuya.com/collegecontest/fhsu/tracking/
If you could join my community, that would make me very, very happy. Of course, as always, if there’s anything I can do in return for you, I’m more than happy to do it.
I’d also be thrilled if this got reblogged by someone, anyone. Because maybe a random stranger will decide that their random act of kindness for today is signing up for a weird ass social media site.
Thanks, guys. <3@4 weeks ago with 1 note
