Advice, Being Alone, and America: Anna Breslaw
 @annabreslavw
 My sister is doing arn
 experiment: Whenever men
 walk towards her, she doesn't
 move out of the way first. So
 far she has collided with 28
 men.

Okay but after seeing this I started doing it too and it’s amazing how many men I’ve run into bc they expected me to move

Gotta try it


I work (and walk) on a college campus. I’ve lost count of how many men I’ve smacked shoulders with.


Recently, I was standing outside my son’s classroom waiting to talk to his teacher. I stood on one side of the hallway, not even close to the center. At some point, a man came walking along. I was standing right in his path, but the hallway was empty, so I logically expected him to swerve around me. Instead he kept walking right toward me, got to me, and stopped, as if waiting for me to get out of his way. I didn’t; I just smiled politely at him. He finally walked around me, clearly annoyed that I hadn’t leapt out of his manly path. 
Now I’m wishing I’d leapt aside, taken off my jacket and laid it on the floor before him, then bowed deeply and said, “My Liege!”


I also work at a college campus. I smack shoulders sometimes, but I find that if I stare straight ahead and follow the advice below, people get the heck out of the way.


Honestly this post changed how I carry myself when walking alone in public, or in a situation where I’m the one leading. People definitely move for the murder gaze.


Confirmed. I once had to rush back inside a convention hall as the con was closing in order to a retrieve a sick friend’s medication, and I didn’t understand why people in the crowd were jumping out of my way (literally—one guy vaulted a table) until I realized I was dressed as the Winter Soldier and doing the Murder Walk because that’s just how I walk in those boots. I got the meds, got out, and made a mental note.
I repeated the experiment later, wearing the boots but otherwise my usual clothing and mimicking the expression I thought I’d had at that moment. People parted like I was Charlton Heston.
I now wear that style of boots whenever possible. I recently had a man do a double-take as I walked by and ask me, politely, where I had served because I “looked like a soldier.” I’m not current or former military. I was wearing a flowy purple peasant top and looked as un-soldierlike as possible.
Moral of the story: wear comfortable shoes, square your shoulders, and walk like you’ve been sent to murder Captain America.


WALK LIKE YOU’VE BEEN SENT TO MURDER CAPTAIN AMERICA




It’s called the Murder Strut.

IT’S BACK!!!!!! I was searching for this to show my daughter the other day and couldn’t find it. I’m so glad IT’S BACK!! I will always reblog the Murder Strut!!


A guy on a bike went around me because he could tell I had no intention of moving. Thanks to this post. 

One day and I bumped into a guy while doing the Murder Strut and he apologized to me even though I was the one who had bumped into him.
It works wonders.


In case you were wondering, yes you can do this in a wheelchair. Same look in your eyes and let ‘em know you will run them down. Just picture yourself in a sports car accelerating towards someone with the intention of flattening them. 
If there’s anything more satisfying than watching Abled men leap out of my way when they realize I’m not moving for them, I can’t think of it atm. 


Walk like you’ve been sent to murder Captain America.
Wheel like you’re gonna win the Indy 500 and don’t care how.
Your crutches are short swords; walk like you can see them buried in the bodies of anyone who crosses (in front of) you.

Anna Breslaw @annabreslavw My sister is doing arn experiment Whenever men walk towards her she doesn't move out of the way first So far she has collided with 28 men 121314 504 PNM marithlizard taraljc seperis sapphic-pink-kryptonite phoenixonwheels linkedsoul little-miss-stan elegantmess100 blossombarnes retroasgardian reddobastard onethingconstant songbirde108 mercurialkitty emmagrant01 clevermanka youcangofindatree moremetalthanyourmom Okay but after seeing this I started doing it too and it’s amazing how many men I’ve run into bc they expected me to move Gotta try it I work and walk on a college campus I’ve lost count of how many men I’ve smacked shoulders with Recently I was standing outside my son’s classroom waiting to talk to his teacher I stood on one side of the hallway not even close to the center At some point a man came walking along I was standing right in his path but the hallway was empty so I logically expected him to swerve around me Instead he kept walking right toward me got to me and stopped as if waiting for me to get out of his way I didn’t I just smiled politely at him He finally walked around me clearly annoyed that I hadn’t leapt out of his manly path Now I’m wishing I’d leapt aside taken off my jacket and laid it on the floor before him then bowed deeply and said “My Liege!” I also work at a college campus I smack shoulders sometimes but I find that if I stare straight ahead and follow the advice below people get the heck out of the way Honestly this post changed how I carry myself when walking alone in public or in a situation where I’m the one leading People definitely move for the murder gaze Confirmed I once had to rush back inside a convention hall as the con was closing in order to a retrieve a sick friend’s medication and I didn’t understand why people in the crowd were jumping out of my way literally—one guy vaulted a table until I realized I was dressed as the Winter Soldier and doing the Murder Walk because that’s just how I walk in those boots I got the meds got out and made a mental note I repeated the experiment later wearing the boots but otherwise my usual clothing and mimicking the expression I thought I’d had at that moment People parted like I was Charlton Heston I now wear that style of boots whenever possible I recently had a man do a double-take as I walked by and ask me politely where I had served because I “looked like a soldier” I’m not current or former military I was wearing a flowy purple peasant top and looked as un-soldierlike as possible Moral of the story wear comfortable shoes square your shoulders and walk like you’ve been sent to murder Captain America WALK LIKE YOU’VE BEEN SENT TO MURDER CAPTAIN AMERICA It’s called the Murder Strut IT’S BACK!!!!!! I was searching for this to show my daughter the other day and couldn’t find it I’m so glad IT’S BACK!! I will always reblog the Murder Strut!! A guy on a bike went around me because he could tell I had no intention of moving Thanks to this post One day and I bumped into a guy while doing the Murder Strut and he apologized to me even though I was the one who had bumped into him It works wonders In case you were wondering yes you can do this in a wheelchair Same look in your eyes and let ‘em know you will run them down Just picture yourself in a sports car accelerating towards someone with the intention of flattening them If there’s anything more satisfying than watching Abled men leap out of my way when they realize I’m not moving for them I can’t think of it atm Walk like you’ve been sent to murder Captain America Wheel like you’re gonna win the Indy 500 and don’t care how Your crutches are short swords walk like you can see them buried in the bodies of anyone who crosses in front of you Tumblr teaching women how to be Moses and part the fucking Red Sea with the power of their minds I had never seen these updates to the Patriarchy Chicken Game before and they are all a goddam DELIGHT Patriarchy Chicken and The Murder Strut dance names for the new millenium Meme
