Apparently everybody could use a little penis in their lives.
Liquid is the classical state of matter with a definite volume but no fixed shape.
cats are liquid
How the fuck do cats work.
A single panel comic created by York University students Jane Kim, Shayna Lauer, Helén Marton to raise awareness about sexual assault and combat victim blaming.
Article from the Toronto Star about it here.
This sounds like a good campaign, and taking a different tactic to raising awareness and getting people’s attention, hopefully people get the message and don’t just laugh it off.
I know the obvious point is “it would be ridiculous if Superman was blamed because he wore tights right?” But, I think using Superman is also really powerful, because (besides the use of him in tights to send the message about clothing) it shows that no matter how physically powerful you are, or if you’re a man, you can still be assaulted. The clothing message is the obvious one, but by using a powerful superhero icon, there’s also the messages about not victim blaming people by speculating on if they could have fought back, or inventing ways of how they could have fought back (and therefore should have) or “but you’re so much bigger than them”, “why didn’t you try to escape?”, or that you must believe somebody has to be “weak” to be a victim of sexual assault (either claiming they must have wanted it because they’re not that “weak”, or insisting that they are because they were assaulted).
And if we can believe Superman can be assaulted, then maybe we can believe the non-powered people we meet IRL when they say so too.
I wanted to share this because it’s about superheroes and feminism, and using superheroes to get a really important message out.
I would say it’s less “Feminism” and more “Rape Culture” in general because if it’s indicating the often overlooked victims.
I want to know that I’m not alone in this…
Every single day
Thought you guys might appreciate some hot guys in kilts. I don’t own any of these images.
Hell yes ;DD
This is crazy, right? Yeah… yeah, this is really crazy. But I’m going to ask for your assistance nonetheless.
I’m aware of the concerns that all viewers have in regards to reality programming and how nerds are portrayed on TV. Believe me, they’re concerns I’ve always had, too. So, if this just outright angers or sickens you, obviously, you don’t need to go out of your way to do anything. But, you know what? Why not? I mean, really, why not? What if it turned out to be a really cool experience to walk away from? What if I learned something? What if I walked away gaining something from it? And I’m not even talking about prizes. Though, believe me, as I state in the video, if voted in, I’m definitely in it to win it. But not for me, necessarily. For the sake of nerds all over the place.
So, here’s what I’m asking. Those of you who follow me, you know me, you know what kind of a nerd I am. Watch my video that I’ve submitted to these guys and see if it lines up with the kind of person you would want representing you on a show such as King of the Nerds. If not, don’t vote for me. Look through the videos and vote for somebody else.
You can vote once a day, it seems. And, seriously, don’t try to rig the system or anything, guys, it’s really only once a day and doing it more than once will cancel out votes, so that helps nobody. Unless you’re trying to sink my battleship, in which case, go ahead and sink me, I totally understand.
There’s really not a lot of time left to do this, so whoever feels like they are willing to lend a click in the amount of time left, I’d greatly appreciate it.
Whatever happens happens. But, you know, let’s just see where this goes, okay? You never know. The experience for all of us together (and believe me, you guys in the community around me are in on this ride) could actually turn out to be pretty fun.
“Yes, yes,” said the Beast, “my heart is good, but still I am a monster.”
“Among mankind,” says Beauty, “there are many that deserve that name more than you, and I prefer you, just as you are, to those, who, under a human form, hide a treacherous, corrupt, and ungrateful heart.”
is there a gender-swapped version of Beauty and the Beast? if not, then why?
