As long as the fact that over here in Australia there is no such category as first degree homicide, and as long as there is intent for death it is called homicide is ignored, this title is supremely applicable to my current situation.

 Since typing the above paragraph I have calmed down quite a bit, but the fact remains that I am severely pissed off at my younger brothers. It could probably be said that I am no longer at a murder level, and more at a ‘report-to-the-correct-authorities-and-sit-smugly-and-watch’ level, despite my knowledge that I shall be quite uncomfortable if said situation arises.

 Household chores are boring, rote and annoying at best, but I do not appreciate having that tension exacerbated by my brothers acting like racist, sexist, stupid, idiotic, bogan, rude gits. When they were making fun of stereotyped Japanese speech patterns – which they have repeatedly been told not to do – I attempted to stop them by making a comment relying heavily on the fact that they were deliberately mispronouncing their words.

 At which point the elder brother informed me, grinning widely and in the same stupid accent, that I was a “stupid woman”.

 At which point I put down my tea towel, stopped drying clean bowls and retreated to my room in an attempt to prevent myself from either a) screaming at them and increasing the hilarity of the situation in their eyes, or b) physically hurting them, which I sincerely doubted would have turned out well in any respect.

 I intended to stay in my bedroom for a couple of minutes in order to cool off and then return to the chore and complete it quickly. I did not except to be followed and offered a false bribe to return. From both of them. Neither of them seemed to see what was wrong with their actions, even after my explaining.

 And that is the reason for the title of this post.

Don't know what to think about that, but I'm feeling pretty pissed off from reading it. False bribe? Jeez, Dick Move much? How old are your brothers? I'm guessing 8 or so because of the "making fun of stereotyped Japanese speech patterns" and the comment about stupid woman *eye-roll*. If they're teens or something and they say something like that again remind them how in the hell will either of them actually get a chick if they think we're stupid.

When I was fourteen at high school none of the guys in my maths class would hang around any girls (unless they knew them well, thank God for growing up together) and a few were sexist pigs whom the girls would avoid and the they'd avoid us, too, (apart from the odd offensive comment) until I couldn't take it anymore and told them if they wanted to keep hating girls forever that was fine, so long as they new they'd forever be virgins. I got detention, since I hadn't noticed the teacher walk into the room, but it was worth it. They're not as bad now and it might have been that fact that they were laughed at by the whole class.

I'm honestly not sure why I just told you that, but I thought it was sort of an important story. Don't put up with sexist pigs, okay hon? ;)
