why does tumblr always personify introversion as a tiny cute girl who drinks tea reads books and wears sweaters like i’m a 190 pound man who hangs out in the gym and in the woods doin manly shit but people still make me nervous like damn
my hand slipped.
OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD I FUCKING LOVE THIS
You may think that that ace post about asexuals feeling broken is exagerated but let me tell you Ive went through over hundred pages in my psychology textbook and every 3/4 pages is repeated how EVERYONE has to have sex to be NORMAL and those who DON’T are STUNTED and BROKEN and need to be REPAIRED and let me tell you it’s fucking me up a lot
my own psychiatrist basically told me there was something wrong with me and took me off my antidepressants in the hopes it would stimulate some kind of interest in sex or sexual attraction
asexuaity is basically considered a mental illness and its really dangerous for asexual people

I’m gonna depress the hell out of all of you. ready? ok go
so, that “stop devaluing feminized work post”
nice idea and all
but the thing is, as soon as a decent number of women enter any field, it becomes “feminized,” and it becomes devalued.
as women enter a field in greater number, people become less willing to pay for it, the respect for it drops, and it’s seen as less of a big deal. it’s not about the job- it’s about the number of women in the job.
observe what happened with biology. it’s STEM, sure, but anyone in a male-dominated science will sneer at the idea of it being ‘for real,’ nevermind that everyone sure took it more seriously when it was a male dominated field. so has happened with scores of other areas; nursing comes to mind
so the thing is, it’s not the work or the job that has to be uplifted and seen as more respectable. it will never work out, until people start seeing women as respectable
but there’s a doozy and who the fuck knows if it’s ever happening in my life time
"observe what happened with biology. it’s STEM, sure, but anyone in a male-dominated science will sneer at the idea of it being ‘for real,’ nevermind that everyone sure took it more seriously when it was a male dominated field."
Personal anecdote time! I’m in a biology graduate program. An acquaintance wanted to introduce some guy to me because his son was thinking about becoming an undergrad science major. When he found out I was in the biology department, he grinned and said, “Well, I guess that’s kind of related to science.”
I gave him what I hope was an icy look and said, “Isn’t it strange how men outside the field started saying that right around the time biology majors shifted from mostly male to mostly female?”
The guy got this look on his face like he was about to play the “just a joke” card, and then an older woman who had been standing nearby, talking to someone else, turned to me and said, “The same thing happened with real estate.” She went on to explain that, over the course of the career, the male-to-female ratio among real estate agents had dropped, and the pay and “prestige factor” of that job dropped along with it.
breaking news rapunzel is actually ten feet tall
well in their defense it does say rapunzel isn’t a typical disney princess
But than means everyone else in the movie was about 10 ft tall too..
WE DID IT. WE FOUND THE TITANS’ VILLAGE.
SIE SIND DAS PRINCESS UND WIR SIND FLYNN RIDER
I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE TITIANS VILLAGE IS BUT WHY DOES THE ABOVE SENTENCE SAY “THEY ARE THE PRINCESS AND WE ARE FLYNN RIDER” IN GERMAN
this week on “i didnt know it was attack on titan”
JonTron just linked this image as an example of how men are stereotyped and exploited in video games I’m literally laughing out loud holy shit
for anyone who still doesn’t get it notice the background please
Fun fact: topless slave girls are COLLECTIBLES in this game.
See, the problem is that the guys objectification is empowering. You’re empowered because you’re taking advantage of the other objectified people.
Also, can my followers who like guys please comment on whether or not they find this guy sexually attractive?
nah, too much muscle. Muscle is hard… I want something soft to rest my head on! :P the only guy that i’ve ever been attracted to who has looked like this is Jason Momoa.
I personally like muscles. I adore them. They fascinate me.
But this Conan doesn’t look sexually attractive. He looks like he’s gonna kill me - he’s intimidating and forceful. I’d better stay away from him.
If he looked like this
I’d say “Well, hello sexy.”
Objectification and sexualization don’t really depend on character’s looks, even if they use it to objectificate and sexualize. They depend on character’s purpose and agency.
A girl character can run around with her titties exposed but still could be not sexualized.
Just my 2 cents
If like, Conan was a bit of a dorky outcast amongst a village of a ton of hypermasculine men and objectified women, who set off to prove his worth having been raised in this mindset and instead wound up saving the world with badass female warrior who kicks a ton of ass but is also a really sweet and complex character as well, and the entire thing is just a huge tongue-in-cheek critique of the misrepresentation of gender in western society and how “manliness” has inherently nothing to do with how big your muscles are or how many bitches you fuck, and femininity isn’t about having tig ol bitties and being a collectors item- they are the respect you give to others and the courage to be yourself in the face of all this bullshit where every character conquers their ill relationship to these harmful stereotypes by the end
oh wait that already exists as a movie
Ronal the Barbarian, it’s sooo R-rated like only european animation can be but it’s hilariously awesome, go find the subtitled danish version that isn’t butchered in English and see what I mean
the best part is that it’s advertising campaign/trailers were basically jabs at how shitty movies that they’re riffing on are advertised, too, with boobs and explosions, it’s amazing
….I should stream it. hmm
You need Discworld in your life.
You may not know you need Discworld in your life but you need it nonetheless.
