Meh, what do you even do, in that kind of setting? I'd probably get more aggressive about it, myself, but it's easier for me, being male. I've seen plenty of situations in which they're even rougher against women than men, because women are supposed to be the ones with the "servant heart" or some crap like that.
You planning on getting the hell out of there, after you finish school? The small-town part is the biggest bit that would bother me. Of course I was raised in the suburbs of Chicago, so I guess my objection to being stuck in a small town is just because of what I'm used to.
Sorry about the long delay there. Had a wonky week.
