Okay, this is actually what you do if you’re being sexually harassed in any kind of public space. Draw attention to it, preferably pull away and let EVERYONE know that someone is touching you. This will not only get him to get off you but he’ll definitely think about this situation next time he wants to do something like this.
Spreading the word.

The Norse Goddess of Winter, Mountains, Skiing and Bow-hunting
In all sources, Skaði is the daughter of the deceased Þjazi, hence she is a giantess - a jötunn. Skaði married the sea god Njörðr as part of the compensation provided by the gods for killing her father Þjazi. In Heimskringla, Skaði is described as having split up with Njörðr and as later having married the god Odin, and that the two produced many children together.
She also had close ties with the trickster god Loki: in one story he tried to make her laugh by tying the ends of a rope to a goat’s beard and his testicles (she laughed when they both shrieked in pain).
In both the Poetic Edda and the Prose Edda, Skaði is responsible for placing the serpent that drips venom onto the bound Loki.
The origin of “Scandinavia” may be related to the name Skaði (potentially meaning “Skaði’s island”) or the name may be connected to an Old Norse noun meaning “harm”.
49. “Light art thou, Loki, | but longer thou mayst not
In freedom flourish thy tail;
On the rocks the gods bind thee | with bowels torn
Forth from thy frost-cold son.”
50. “Though on rocks the gods bind me | with bowels torn
Forth from my frost-cold son,I was first and last | at the deadly fight
There where Thjazi we caught.”
51. “Wert thou first and last | at the deadly fight
There where Thjazi was caught,
From my dwellings and fields | shall ever come forth
A counsel cold for thee.”
52. “More lightly thou spakest | with Laufey’s son,
When thou badst me come to thy bed;
Such things must be known | if now we two
Shall seek our sins to tell.”
(from the Poetic Edda: Lokasenna)
Hipster Witch Says: Yes. Wicca often uses witchcraft as its practice. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME THING… Wicca is a religion that uses witchcraft much like all the other religions that use witchcraft as its practice. Wicca is a religion. Witchcraft is a Practice. One may be a part of the other but it is not automatically the SAME thing.
Sorry for the shit image, and that this is so long.
Alright, so I was in class today and this asshole is sitting in front of me.
Last class he sat by my boyfriend, my friend Chelsea, and I. He talked through most of the lecture, goes on Facebook, and then tracks both my friend and I down on FB (not my boyfriend though) after not introducing himself to me, I don’t know what his name is. I don’t think he added me, but he definitely added her. He kept talking about how he’s doing poorly in this class, and how it must be sooooooo hard for anyone to pass (Most people do really well because this is a really easy class mostly taken by freshmen). Gee I wonder why you’re not doing well, when you go on Facebook throughout the whole class. I found it really annoying and creepy, and after I asked Chelsea how she knew him and she said she didn’t. She helped him on ONE hw question ONE time.
Today he came in and sat down in front of us:
1. That girl on his left is one of the TAs
2. He’s on facebook
3. He’s in the 2nd row, right in front of the professor.
4. HE PUT HIS FEET ON THE FUCKING CHAIRS IN FRONT OF HIM RENDERING THEM USELESS. Also really encroaching on the TA’s personal space. His leg was on top of her desk, and she has to take notes too. WTF move the fuck over!
Even worse, the professor asked us a question, “What is refraction, can anyone remember from when we talked about it a long time ago?” Obviously no one did, so this kid looked it up on his tablet, and gave him the textbook definition. He didn’t preface it by saying “I looked it up just now…” nope, he gave it to him straight like he was a genius and remembered it off the top of his head. I was so annoyed. I really don’t like it when people do that, and take up so much space that they make people feel uncomfortable, and somehow finding my fb, without knowing my name, was really creepy even though he probably found it through my friend’s. I don’t care, that’s not ok, none of it was ok.
