Wanting people to listen, you can’t just tap them on the shoulder anymore. You have to hit them with a sledgehammer, and then you’ll notice you’ve got their strict attention.
unfortunately, i did not evolve the ability to feel shame.
i don’t care about straight girls who are afraid to cut their hair short in case they get called lesbians, i care about the fact that lesbians are being used as fucking insults
every single person you know has something in their life and past that is probably worth collapsing to the ground in an uncontrollably sobbing heap over, so be nice to each other and tell good jokes

She had no time for sleep, with the weight of the world upon her shoulders. And she feared to dream. Sleep is a little death, dreams the whisperings of the Other, who would drag us all into his eternal night. She would sooner sit bathed in the ruddy glow of her red lord’s blessed flames, her cheeks flushed by the wash of heat as if by a lover’s kisses. Some nights she drowsed, but never for more than an hour. One day, Melisandre prayed, she would not sleep at all. One day she would be free of dreams. Melony, she thought. Lot Seven.
QUT criminologist says Disney princesses have a lot to answer for when it comes to domestic abuse.
How many Disney films centred around the princess while the prince doesn’t even merit a name. How many evil bad men does the prince fight in order to save the life of the princess at serious risk to his own. How many good men are there in these films besides her prince?
And now, they’re seriously saying that after they have risked their very existence to save the person they love, they’re all going to beat the shit out of them. After all the crap the Disney princes get for merely being the object of a female character’s affection this shouldn’t come as a shock but it is a disgusting new low.
The message from everywhere is even if a man endures tremendous suffering with no thanks and no expectation of reward, risks his very life to save yours or just to make you more comfortable, he is a monster.
I love how the “scientist” here boasts what men do when women aren’t around. As if women don’t say sexist, horrible shit about men when they leave the room sometimes. As if all men are just counting down the seconds until women leave the room so their unchallenged sexism can begin.
She literally treats the bro code like some patriarchal conspiracy law.
Funny how when you say violent video games are responsible for school shootings and increases in violent tendencies among children and teenagers, the entire nation goes up in arms about how ‘media has no correlation on the actions of their players/watchers!’ but then when you have crap like this, everyone just sort of nods and agrees like some sort of hivemind.
