The Intentional Necklace | Silver
Those of us obsessed with true crime - specifically fellow 'My Favorite Murder' fans - are familiar with the phrase "Fuck politeness."
It stems from the idea that victims, especially female victims, must play nice with aggressors who simply won't take "no" for an answer in order to maintain some aspect of their safety.
When you're at the bar and someone hitting on you repeatedly asks for your number and you say 'no I'm not interested' or make up excuses, but they go so far as to guilt you into giving it because they bought you a drink... or they're a 'nice' guy. When you're walking down the street and a group of dudes aggressively catcall and make obscene gestures, so you politely smile and speed up your pace.
The phrase calls on us to equally, assertively, make it clear that we do not welcome the advances of the aggressor. And when we need a little reminder, this pendant can be just that.
