Taylor Swift "Reputation" First Impression Review

Song by Song Rating:    ...Ready For It – I’m still pretty split on this song. There are quite a few lines that are pretty cringe-worthy, especially the delivery of them. I can’t really enjoy her “rapping” delivery in this song. It sounds pretty forced. That being said, I like the production. The chorus and the bridge are nice. It’s also the perfect track to open the album, I think. – 6/10   End Game – This song actually isn’t all that bad. The production is much more hip-hop as opposed to electro or trip-hop. I’m not a huge fan of modern rap, but Future’s verse was alright. Ed Sheeran was okay, too. It’s still kind of funny to me how both Ed and Taylor have been trying to ‘rap’ a lot lately. Taylor’s ‘rapping’ feels less annoying in this song, for some reason. Maybe it’s because it fits better with the vibe of the song. Her flow is quicker and slicker, with well written lyrics and a better delivery. I like the chorus a lot. A good next single choice. – 7/10   I Did Something Bad – I quite like the instrumentation and production of this song. It’s definitely much more electronic and dubstep-like. I wish it was a little more catchy. The chorus is fine enough, but I feel like this song could have been bigger with some changes. I don’t mind this song, but it’s not that infectious for me to come back enough times. I don’t like the bridge, the phrase “they’re burning witches even if you aren’t one” is very sloppy sounding and I don’t like the excessive autotune. – 6/10   Delicate – This song is kind of middle of the road for me. It has a very smooth instrumental and vibe. However, it’s very sonically uninteresting. It feels like every other downtempo pop song on the radio in the past year or two, so Taylor’s not really doing anything all that special. That being said, this song has some of the best lyrics on the album. The phrasing isn’t disjointed and it flows rather well. The lyrics aren’t cringey or too self-obsessed, although I do feel like Taylor sort of reuses a lot of the same themes, ideas, and observations. Despite being somewhat boring, I feel it balances out some of the low quality songs on the album. I think it’ll be a grower for me. – 8/10   Don’t Blame Me – I think this is the only song on that album that got me really moving. I was already singing along to the chorus by the end of my first listen. A decently good pop song with a groovy, electro beat. I don’t really have much else to say, other than I really liked it. – 9/10   Look What You Made Me Do – I was very unimpressed by this song when it was first released, but listening to it now, it’s obvious this one of the better composed songs on the album. It still has some cringey moments here and there, and the chorus is a little bit of a letdown after the build-ups of the verses/pre-choruses. I don’t think I’ll ever enjoy the uppity, self-obsession running through this track – and most of the album – but like I said, it’s well-structured and decently produced, so it’s one of the better songs on the album – 6/10   So It Goes... – I take back what I said about ‘Delicate’ being a “middle of the road” song. This song describes that much more. Very typical production and I can’t really dictate any interesting lyrics. I don’t hate it, but it doesn’t really grab me. – 6/10   Gorgeous – I know that everyone really hates this song, and I admit that the lyrics are pretty dumb in places. But it makes up for that by being catchy and having a fun, bubbly production. I honestly don’t think it’s any better or worse than the other singles. If I could carve out the “go home to my cats” line, I would feel much better about this song. – 6/10   Getaway Car – I don’t really know what the fuck the narrative is supposed to be in this song, but that doesn’t really matter. It sounds good. There are some poor rhyming attempts in the pre-chorus. But, this is probably the best chorus on the entire album. The instrumentation and production on the chorus is also really great. I really like this song. I hope it grows more on me, but I get the feeling that it might have the opposite effect. – 9/10   King of My Heart – Oh my god, what a fucking letdown. The verses and the first part of the choruses are all really nice. But the instrumentation and production on the pre-chorus is so disrupting and ugly. It’s literally because of the pre-chorus – and the latter half of the chorus – that make this song so disappointing. I don’t know why they had to add such an annoying trip-hop element to the song, when the other parts sound so good. – 4/10   Dancing With Our Hands Tied – I was impressed by this song the first time I heard it, and listening a second time, I really, really enjoy the instrumentation and production throughout the song, especially the verses. I think the phrase ‘dancing with our hands tied’ doesn’t really make sense and is kind of stupid, but that is overshadowed by the better elements of the song. I think this will be a grower. – 9/10   Dress – This feels like ‘Delicate’ and ‘So It Goes…’ for me. I like the higher, breathy vocals that she’s using on this song. I actually really like the phrase “I only bought this dress for you to take it off”. Sexy! I don’t really have much else to say about this song, other than I do enjoy it. – 8/10   This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things – The only thing this song has going for is the title. I don’t like the verses at all. I really cringe at the whole ‘party-thuggery’ of the whole first verse. The choruses are actually pretty infectious, I can’t lie… I found myself singing along to “did you really think I wouldn't hear all the things you say about may-ay-ay-ay-ay-ayyy”. I don’t know, I’m very torn on this song, I’ll just give a middle rating for now. – 5/10   Call It What You Want – The production is really nice and I do enjoy the tone of it. Like I said when it first came out, I’m not a big fan of the “fuck the haters, they don’t understand us.” theme of the lyrics. However, I found myself enjoying the song overall the second time listening to it. – 6/10   New Years Day – Okay, the first thing I need to say about this song is that it feels like they recorded this with an old piano where some of the keys kind of scratch/check next to each other. I know this sound because my mother’s piano had a few keys like that. Please let me if yo guys know what I’m talking about. It’s either that, or I can hear the foot pedals being pushed. But anyway… the lyrics are very nice and pleasant. There is a soft, and even a somberness to this song that I really enjoy. I feel like Taylor is finally showing her vulnerable side. It’s sad that a ballad would be so typically shoehorned in at the end of the album, but its songs like these this I enjoy from Taylor. Even with that weird sound to it, I really like the piano. It’s tone feels something like Regina Spektor. “Please don’t ever become a stranger who’s laugh I could recognize anywhere” is a really nice lyric. – 10/10   Overview:   Overall, I didn’t hate this album as much as I thought I would. All of the singles were mostly letdowns to me, and the album provided some better tracks, but nothing that really blew me away. There were plenty of songs on her past two album that really caught my attention upon first listen, while this album was pretty moderate through and through.  I just don’t think I enjoy the musical direction Taylor’s been going in. The genre is moving towards a weird electro-dubstep with trip-hop elements. The delivery of her vocals turned to talk-rapping in a few of the songs and I don’t really enjoy it. I actually think working with all of these pop producers has depleted the nature of her songwriting. It’s gotten worse. I wasn’t ever truly impressed by any of her lyrics on Reputation, and there were plenty of times that I rolled my eyes at them. The album is all attitude, coyness, sultriness, and other fuckery. There isn't much vulnerability or emotion available from Taylor. The production and the themes are pretty cold and shallow, and it’s even a disappointment that we don’t get to hear any real instruments until the very last song.   Anyway, I did like some of the songs. I rated each song pretty liberally, but there are plenty of them that I probably won’t go back to.   Songs that I will use: End Game, Delicate, Don’t Blame Me, Getaway Car, Dancing With Our Hands Tied, New Years Day   Songs that I will probably use: Gorgeous, Dress     Based on my song ranking, I give this album a 7/10

#321 | #1 Wait, #8 All Time Low, #39 Anywhere, #40 New Rules

Jon Bellion is still going strong with 24 appearances in this weeks chart, although Broken Back's newest single Wait climbs to the top making this his first #1. One More Time by Jon Bellion is the highest debut at #2 as last week there were so many Jon Bellion songs that I listened to, this song got snubbed but not this week. Fell in love with Kendji Girac's song Jamais à genoux all over again which is why it's the highest climber, climbing 41 places. Only its third week on the chart, I Was Never Yours by Martin Brothers drops 44 places to #48, making it the highest faller. The longest runner goes to Kendji Girac with his song Andalouse after re-entering the chart and racking up its 112th week since the chart started. Finally, a quick shameless promo shoutout that Jon is up for Best Push at this year's MTV EMAs and you can vote for him here.

#USUM: Rainbow Rocket, Ultra Wormholes & The Battle Agency

Hello. Little Mewtwonsters      A LOT has happened today and there are now THREE trailers we need to discuss as well as other little titbits from the Pokemon website. One of these trailers is in English and two are in Japanese but you really need to view all three of them to have a grip of what's going on. I'll link them below so watch them and then meet me after the jump!      Ok, so now that we're done with that. Where do we begin? Usually I'd go through each trailer one-by-one but there is SOOOO much to discuss this time. So instead, I'm going to discuss the main points first and then round off with little things from the website and the individual trailers. So strap yourselves in coz it's time for a journey through an ultra wormhole!     To the surprise of no-one with half-a-brain that's been updated on #USUM and its leaks, Team Rainbow Rocket is now confirmed. Giovanni is its leader! The team is made up of all teams from the past generations - excluding the Gamecube spin-offs. That's Giovanni, Maxie, Archie, Cyrus, Ghetsis and Lysandre. It also seems like Faba is somehow involved as the seventh member of the rainbow organisation. Giovanni and the other bosses - who allegedly come from universes where they actually completed their objectives - take over Aether Paradise, and after a breaking news segment, it's your job to stop them. Unfortunately for you, these bosses are now super-equipped with a new warehouse of traps, mega evolutions... and legendary Pokemon in their disposal; such as Giovanni using Mega Mewtwo Y.     Next up, let's look more into depth for Legendary Pokemon themselves. All past Legendary Pokemon - note, not mythicals - are now confirmed to return for Ultra Sun and Moon. Some of these are available in both games without any extra objectives (Mewtwo, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Regice, Regirock, Registeel, Uxie, Azelf, Mesprit, Cresselia, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion and Zygarde). Some of these are version exclusive to Ultra Sun (Ho-Oh, Raikou, Groudon, Dialga, Latios, Heatran, Reshiram, Tornadus and Xerneas) or to Ultra Moon (Lugia, Entei, Kyogre, Palkia, Latias, Regigigas, Zekrom, Thundurus and Yveltal), and the remaining legendaries are available in both games but only when you have certain specific version exclusive Pokemon in your party. These ones are Suicune (Raikou and Entei), Rayquaza (Kyogre and Groudon), Giratina (Dialga and Palkia), Landorus (Thundurus and Tornadus) and Kyurem (Reshiram and Zekrom).      But how do you find these Pokemon? Simple. You travel on Lunala or Solgaleo through the Ultra Wormhole, and just like the Ultra Beasts' own environments, the legendaries also seem to be found in their own locations reminiscent to that of the original games. It doesn't seem to be a massive environment or a fully-fledge dungeon, but it seems similar to the Ultra Space equivalents that the likes of Pheromosa and Xurkitree are now found in.  As it stands, Lugia, Giratina and Mewtwo have been seen in their own environments.      Next, let's have a look at some other old Pokemon that you can get in a new way. These ones aren't really that old; they were established last year in Sun and Moon; Totem Pokemon. That's right, in Ultra Sun and Moon, you can now gain access to these Totem Pokemon. Instead of Zygarde Cells, this year, you are tasked with finding Totem Stickers which are scattered around Alola. And the more of these stickers that you collect, the more Totem Pokemon that you can unlock for use. So far, Gumshoos is available in both games while Lurantis is exclusive to Ultra Sun and Salazzle is exclusive to Ultra Moon. Interestingly, it appeared that Salazzle is no longer a Totem Pokemon in this game as Alolan Marowak is now the Totem at Wela Volcano Park, so either totems from both games are included or some other Pokemon who weren't previously totems will also have totem forms!      Now, let's look at something else that people have been asking for, for a very long time; the return of the Battle Factory. While not a direct copy of the Battle Factory, Ultra Sun and Moon have introduced us to a new facility; the Battle Agency. This facility allows you to rent Pokemon and battle in single battle style against opponents. Each player will use three Pokemon. These Pokemon will have pre-determined stats, movesets and items. By battling through the agency, you can battle other unique characters - like Sophocles - and earn rare items - such as gold bottle caps. As you continue battling, you will earn more powerful Pokemon to use and eventually earn a higher grade. In addition, this feature allows - and is encouraged - for multi-player use. By connecting with other agents online, you'll be able to rent even more powerful Pokemon.      Now, with the main reveals out of the way, let's look at some of the other changes we've seen so far for Ultra Sun and Moon. Firstly, let's begin with the English trailer. The only other thing here to note is that new Island Scan Pokemon are set to appear. From what we've seen so far, these include Charmander, Grovyle and Greninja!      Moving onto the Japanese trailer there's a lot of little things here. We get some new footage of Lusamine dangerously close to an Ultra Wormhole and still looking rather sinister. In the post-game episode, it seems like Team Skull's leader Guzma is helping you against Rainbow Rocket. It also shows a confrontation between the player, Lillie, Guzma, Lusamine and the members of the Ultra Recon Squad at the altar of the Sunne or Moone. Finally, the bottom screen menu in Ultra Sun and Moon looks a lot more exciting than it did in the original releases!     Ok, so that's all from me for today! It's only fifteen more days until Ultra Sun and Moon releases, and actually, I'm pleased - and surprised - to say that we'll have even more information coming in 8 days time; on November the 10th (5am UTC). If I had to guess, I'd say New Alola Forms and the 2nd battle facility will be revealed along with a few more Z-Moves. See ya then Lil Lusamines.

#320 | #1 2 Rocking Chairs, #2 Mi Mala, #13 All Time Low

More charts this week: Artist | Album
I'll try to keep up with these charts from now on. So I've finally had time this week to listen to a past Jon Bellion mixtape thanks to him releasing them all on streaming services, went for The Separation and wasn't disappointed. This guy is so talented, he can: rap, sing, write but most importantly he can produce very creative and well-polished songs, which is what I fell in love with his music in the first place from listening to The Human Condition and The Definition already. 2 Rocking Chairs is the sweetest song I have listened to in a long time and it was love at first listen which frankly goes to all the songs on the mixtape. It's natural that I listened to his recent songs again which is why some songs on THC and TD charted this week, I am not complaining lol. I highly suggest you check this guy out, you won't find 2 songs that are the same. When I first heard Mi Mala by Mau y Ricky, I was shocked to find reggaeton beats in there since they're a mostly Latin indie/pop duo but it's a bop and a half. And finally, Broken Back enters back on the chart with some songs from his newest debut album. What an unusual voice that works with the deep/tropical house sounds. I didn't get the chance to listen and spam the album fully this week so it could be Broken Back's chart next week.

What I bought at Comic-Con

Doctor Strange and Mr. Fantastic (these are somewhat old and you can't take them out of the box without cutting it open, so I won't be doing so)     The Shadow (debated getting the regular version or the Lamont Cranston/Alec Baldwin one that turns into the Shadow, landed on the former). Again, not gonna open it.     Batman (1989) blast shield (action figure included) and Batwing, still boxed.     Movie-based Dick Tracy toys that I had wanted for a really long time, and was lucky to find for very cheap (Dick Tracy, Big Boy Caprice, Flattop).     And this doll.     Ultimate Thor and AoU Hulk.     Black Widow and Lady Deathstrike.     And the Penguin.

A poem for Dr.Slay

Um... Dr.Slay I think you’re really cool And I just wanted say  Hey And do you still like Gaga? Applause is her best song And when it comes on the radio That beat really goes off But I’m sure that you knew that I mean you do Stan talent  You speak English so fluent Sylks tits are not congruent  But mine are and that makes me superior  So @Dr. Slay This is me just saying  Hey Sincerely, NicoleRichiePurpleHair.jpg (:

Similarities Between Madonna and Mariah Carey

Similarities Between Madonna and Mariah Carey   Madonna and Mariah Carey are two artists that stans here seem to compare a lot. It always ends up being such an ugly squabble about sales and talent.
As a fan of both of these artists, I started to think about things that they had in common – if any. Although it may seem odd to think that these two might
have any parallels, but I was able to make a list of statistics about both their personal and professional lives that seem to align.   Personal Lives - Both were married two times First Marriages: - Both married when they were relatively young Madonna: (1985) 27 years old Mariah Carey: (1993) 23 years old - Both first marriages were short-lived Madonna: (1985–1989) 4 years Mariah Carey: (1993–1997) 4 years - Both first husbands were abusive Madonna: Husband Sean Penn was known at the time for his short temper, having physically lashed out at paparazzi and being arrested for altercations during Madonna’s Who’s That Girl World Tour. It was reported that he physically abused her – hitting her and tying her to a chair – but no charges were brought to court. Madonna’s song "Till Death Do Us Part" and her music video for "Oh Father" both hint at marital abuse. Mariah Carey: Husband Tommy Mattola was very controlling of Mariah’s personal and professional life. He dictated what she could wear in promotional videos and controlled who she worked with. It was reported that he listened in on her phone conversations and had her followed when she left their house – which she allegedly nicknamed “Sing Sing”. There was no reports of actual physical abuse. Second Marriages: - Both second marriages were more successful than their first Madonna: Guy Ritchie (2000–2008) 8 years Mariah Carey: Nick Cannon (2008–2016) 8 years - Both second marriages produced children Madonna: Rocco Ritchie (2000, biological) David (adopted 2005) Mariah Carey: Moroccan & Monroe Cannon (2011, biological)   Professional - Both achieved their most recent – and thus far their last – Number One around the same time in their careers: Madonna: “Music” (2000) 17 years after debut (1983) Mariah Carey: “Touch My Body” (2008) 18 years after debut (1990) - Both achieved successful comebacks not long after major dips in their careers. Madonna: In 1992, the release of Erotica and the coffee table book S.E.X. saw a major backlash in Madonna’s public image. The album and its subsequent singles failed to reach the top spot on Billboard charts. She was scrutinized and panned for her raunchy artistry. In 1994, the release of Bedtime Stories saw the singles “Secret” at #3 and “Take A Bow” at #1, retrieving her success public approval.  Mariah Carey: In 2001, the film project Glitter was a commercial and critical failure, with the soundtrack album also performing poorly. This was followed by a personal breakdown in which Mariah was hospitalized for exhaustion. Her following effort, Charmbracelet, did not fare any better. In 2005, The Emancipation of Mimi saw the singles “We Belong Together” at #1, “Shake It Off” at #2, and “Don’t Forget About Us” at #1, returning her former success and appeal. - Both aforementioned ‘comebacks’ saw them achieving their longest-running Solo Number One hits of their career Madonna: “Take A Bow”, #1 for 7 weeks Mariah Carey: “We Belong Together”, #1 for 14 weeks - Both released what are arguably their most personal and critically praised albums of their careers around the same time Madonna: Ray of Light, March 1998 (#2 Billboard 200) Mariah Carey: Butterfly, September 1997 (#1 Billboard 200)

Top 10 90s Whitney Songs

In the 90s we saw whitney mature, vocally and artistcally. She still sang about love, but also about children and world peace and of course, her love for God. Here, im gonna count her top 10 songs from the decade that gave us so many of her best songs.   I Have Nothing- Every performance of this song brings me chills. She sounded soft and powerful, mature and novice. She sang this song with all she had and that what made it the classic it is. I Will Always Love You- The most inspiring song sang by a female vocalist, Whitney set the benchmark even higher with this materpiece. She owned this song just as much as Dolly did.   Its Not Right But Its Okay- Its not right but ist okay, its her best bop anyway. Some real sass, let us know how Whitney's marriage was going. Just a bit. Im Every Woman- I really love this song, i know all the words. Whitney was the only one who could do a Chaka song justice  My Love is Your Love- I love this songs. She sounded relaxed and happy in the recording and it reminds us that lve between two people of a group of people can be unbreakable- in a way only Whitney could say.  Im Your Baby Tonight- A bop that had amazing visuals, Whitney's evolution had taken place in my opinion  Run to You- This would have been a hit if the Bodyguard hadnt been selling as well as it did. She shattered the world with these vocals she was so full. She made even a song about being lonely sound great.  All the Man That I Need- She once more took the art of singing to another level with another vocal gymnastic of a song. She had so much feeling with this, which only intensified when she sang it live.  Exhale(Shoop Shoop)- A calm song with a new, mature Whitney. Slay queen. Heartbreak Hotel- When R&B's greatest singers come together to make a masterpiece like that, its isnt a small thing and the charts showed that.

My sexual harassment story

I haven't talked about this much before, but after everything that's been going on in the news I feel compelled to share my own story. I want to preface this by saying that it isn't my intention to derail the #MeToo movement, which is primarily about abuse and harassment perpetrated by men and women's solidarity and I hope that this doesn't come off as whataboutism since I'm a guy and one of my stories involves a girl.   I was sitting in chorus class in eighth grade. At this point in my education all of my friends had dropped out of chorus, so I was the last one left and I was pretty much a loner in there. In between songs, our teacher took a break and let the class talk to their friends for a few minutes. This girl who had previously always winked at me and brushed up against me creepily approached me, and started by touching my leg and then began working her way up until she was in my lap and touching my dick through my pants and humping me. She was saying all kinds of perverted things and gave me this evil look in her eye which told me that she knew exactly what she was doing and she was going to get away with it, and I tried to fight her off (slapping her and trying to throw her off of myself) but she wouldn't let go and kept laughing. She even tried to take off my pants. She was really strong despite her size, but looking back I think I was afraid to do any serious damage even in self-defense because she was a girl and it would look bad if I hurt her. Almost everyone else was busy doing their own thing and talking to their friends so they didn't even notice, except for a few people who were watching. They thought it was funny and didn't even try to help me. The part that hurt the most was that it was in broad daylight in a room full of people, and hardly anyone noticed and none of those who did cared or asked if I was okay.  Our chorus class was a split block with a lunch break in between, so I had lunch at the same time as this girl and she followed me around for the next few days and tried to make me feel uncomfortable. It seemed like she was everywhere I looked, with those creepy eyes and that smile. She even said a few times that she had a surprise for me (thank god I never found out what it was). I ended up staying a few minutes after class one day and telling our teacher that this girl kept following me, and even though I was trying to keep it together I ended up crying but didn't reveal what really happened. My teacher could tell that there were more details I wasn't sharing with her but she didn't ask any questions. I ended up quitting chorus later that week because I "wasn't interested anymore," even though I loved to sing. I told my friends, my family, my teacher, and my guidance counselor the same thing and no one questioned it. There were a few reasons why I never said anything. First of all, this girl was a special needs student so I thought people would excuse it by saying she didn't know any better and she didn't know what she was doing...which is complete bullshit, because I saw it in her eyes. She was one hundred percent aware of what was going on and lived for the fact that she made me feel embarrassed and powerless and would get away with it because she wouldn't be held accountable even if I were to say something. Also, male victims of sexual harassment tend to face ridicule and are made fun of for not wanting it. They're told that they must be gay for not wanting to get laid, and not that being gay is a bad thing but it's not a good label to have in middle school where kids will bully you for it. People already teased me for being fruity, and coming forward with this just would have made it worse. I also felt like what happened "wasn't bad enough," because I never got drugged and raped or anything like that. I've never called it assault and I've always considered it harassment, but truthfully I don't know where one draws the line. Even the online friends I've confided in about this thought the mental image of a special needs girl humping me in the middle of chorus class was funny and didn't seem too concerned about how I felt or thought it was that serious. And lastly, there were rumors that she herself was being raped by her grandfather and I didn't want her to get in trouble if she might have been an abuse victim herself.   The next time, I was 16 and working at my first job. It was at an amusement park and I operated kiddie rides. There were two new employees one day, and they set off my gaydar. They were in their early/mid 20s, and after their very first shift the taller, younger one came up behind me while I was clocking out for the day and whispered "Hey Hermione" right in my ear in this flop trying-to-be-seductive-but-coming-off-as-extremely-creepy deep voice. I probably jumped up several inches because it completely took me by surprise. When I did, I saw that he was winking. I replied "Hi" in a shaky voice because saying hi back is my natural reflex and then I bolted out of there. Once again, this was in a room full of people and nobody noticed. I later started hearing rumors that they lived together and were secretly engaged, and even though they didn't talk about their relationship at work it was obvious that they were a couple. Since they ran the adult rides I barely saw them except for pre and post-shift (when they always stared at me, with looks I couldn't tell were dirty or aroused), until one day when my assigned ride was on the border between the kiddie and adult rides. The shorter, older one was operating the one right next to me, and after an hour of no interactions he walked over to the fence between our rides when our side of the park was empty and we had no customers. This was about two months after they started working there, and I was now newly 17. Between customers he would come over and ask me questions like how old I was, what school I went to, what some of my hobbies were, and finally officially introduced himself. We gossiped a little bit about the place too, and he told me that he trained our manager on his very first ride years ago and decided to come back this year since he moved back to the area. The questions eventually turned to my sexuality, which were obviously making me uncomfortable especially since he had asked my age and knew I was a minor. The age of consent is 17 here, but I still felt like it was inappropriate for this 23 year old man I barely knew to be asking me this stuff especially since I was still in high school and looked like a little boy. He also said that all the other guys who worked there were ugly, including my friends, and that I was the only cute one. He kept leaving and going to the fence on the other side of his ride where his boyfriend was working (the one who whispered in my ear), and I got the feeling he was reporting my answers back to him and they were planning something. They kept looking over at me with lust in their eyes. Eventually he asked if I would want to come home with them after work and hang out (presumably for a threesome), and my heart started racing. I said no and he looked really offended and then asked why, and I said, with my voice shaking, "Don't you think I'm too young to be hanging out with you guys?" and he didn't really say anything else. Another one of my coworkers eventually came over to my ride while the guy was busy, and I told her everything while holding back tears. She wasn't that busy that day so she agreed to stay with me for the rest of my shift, because I knew he wouldn't try to talk to me again if someone else was there to hear it. I wrote an email to our boss saying what happened, but I never had the courage to send it. It sat in my drafts for a few weeks, and I finally decided against it and deleted it. 17 is the age of consent so flirting with me was technically legal even if I was still a minor, and they backed off once I wasn't interested. Not to mention that I doubted my managers would even believe my story, since he had history with them and I was just a kid at my first job. I told my coworkers and it turned into the hot gossip at work (and again, treated like a joke rather than something that actually messed with me) but it never made its way to the managers, and a year later I found out that they tried the same thing with my friend and even told him that he was the only cute one and the rest of us were ugly. I told him what happened at the time, but he never confessed that they tried hooking up with him too until a text much later on. Apparently they messaged him on Facebook too, and he was still 16 at the time. We walked everywhere together at work after that, because we were both afraid of being alone around these guys. The worst part of this story is that I have the older guy's Twitter, and around the Kesha trial he was tweeting all of this stuff about how horrible Dr. Luke is despite being creepy and preying on underage boys himself. I never told my family about this because they're pretty homophobic, and I didn't want it to add to their negative image of gay people.   I still know all three of their names, both the girl from middle school and the gay couple from my old job, and I could expose them if I wanted but I have this weird desire to protect them from the consequences for some reason even though they deserve it. I'm fine now and don't have any long-term issues from either instance, but it sucks so much that I'm made to feel like I'm overreacting for this stuff because it's "not as bad" as other cases people have spoken up about. Whenever I think about them I tend to second-guess myself and wonder if my feelings are justified and that I'm not just being oversensitive or a drama queen. Anyway, I know this doesn't really have an inspiring message but I just needed to get it out because I'm sick of bottling it up. I don't need your pity nor your assessment of whether this was "real" sexual harassment.
