i started this at first to just like and re-blog things i found hilarious but now i am finding i might actually have something to say. most of the time this blog is just ridiculousness, but with a splash of science, religion and politics... oh and kitties!!!
At no time and in no parallel universe will I ever be able to speak that fast about that much.
I love that Henry is doing this all month.
It’s people like this, who think they are my doctor, that need to stop speaking immediately. It boggles my mind when people assume I am unhealthy. I actually work out 4 times a week between cardio and muscle toning. I don’t smoke, I also don’t drink and last time I checked, I haven’t been to meg_thatchic M.D. For my routine check up. being fit and toned does not make you healthy, for instance Lance Armstrong. Being fit doesn’t make some “real” either. Sit the fuck down.
So um, i dont really know too much about rape culture. I mean, i know the basics, im not totally blind. But..i dont really know..all the forms of rape i guess? what all should be considered rape
but idk, this kinda doesnt feel right to me….am i just worrying too much? or is this like a legit problem?
That is rape. Having sex you don’t want because you’re trying to avoid harassment is not enthusiastic consent. Attacking a confused victim with blame? That’s rape culture.
Notice that the female is the harshest accuser of this poor victim? Sometimes rape culture works through projection: in trying to avoid being called those things herself, she likely became so resentful of her lost freedoms that she began taking it out on victims (who she perceived as having more sexual freedom than her.) That not an excuse, but it is an explanation.
Regardless of gender, if a person is participating in victim blaming like this, they are part of rape culture.
(likes and reblogs always taken as support)
omg this is horrific :( “giving in” is not consenting, it’s understanding that whoever you’re with doesn’t care whether you consent or not, so you might as well make it easier for yourself. Making your rape less difficult does not mean it’s not rape.
Tumblr has taught me more about feminism, women rights, rape culture, slut shaming, etc, more than school ever had. And there is something wrong with that.
i cant even make it past the table of contents im laughing too hard
WHAT IS THIS BOOK!?!
It’s called “Zeus Grants Stupid Wishes: A No-Bullshit Guide to World Mythology”
By Cory O’Brien, and it looks highly entertaining. :D
Gilgamesh: THE ULTIMATE BROMANCE
Give it here, now.
Sweet Fluffy Gods why is there not an audiobook version?
I need to find this book.
The first time Iv’e wanted to read something since Metro 2033.
The Japanese and the Indian one (though they really should be specific about their creation myths in this context) are pretty spot on. Also, Susanoo Has No Idea What He’s Doing is pretty much one of the most hilarious explanations of that part of Japanese mythology I’ve ever heard.
