Just finished a class discussing racist, victim blaming gross stories. Cheering myself up like a true whitey with a pumpkin spice latte, fuckin’ try and stop me
If you are a man who thinks it’s funny to make misogynist jokes purely to make your female friends uncomfortable/angry, then you are a misogynist. It is not “just a joke.” You literally are finding humor in the discomfort and dehumanization of women. You are not helping, you are not making satire. You are just being misogynist.
Yes, this includes you gay men.

This is so accurate. At school, we literally have children who will watch our facial expressions to see if them falling is as bad as they think it might be.
CORRECT CHILD INJURY PROCEDURE:
- do not react. at the most, maybe wince and go “ooooh”
- go over to the child to assess panic level and severity of injury
- if they’re like, dying, remain calm, but they’re probably not.
- look them in the eye and ask, “you okay?” they will nod. possibly all teary-eyed. then ask, “are we gonna need to cut it off?”
- the child is thrown off. if they giggle, you’re in the money. if they do not, put a bandaid on and do some sympathetic patting. they are probably a little teary. let the sad little bug sit out for a minute. they will quickly get bored.
- works every time
"sad little bug" is the cutest and most accurate term ive heard used to describe a child because sometimes bugs are kinda super cute sometimes bugs are really fucking annoying and sometimes bugs are downright TERRIFYING
When I worked at zoo camp over the summer, asking the kids when they had fallen at the water park was, “Do you need to sit down for a minute?” and it was always met with the most vigorous “NO” and they’d go scampering off happy as a clam.
I also always made sure, after the kid was calm, I went WAAAAY over the top so they’d know I was paying attention. “Okay, turn your hands over slowly. Now back. Can you close your fist? Good, good. Wiggle your fingers? Awesome. All right, you’ve got your full range of motion, and I don’t see any blood or bones, so I think you’re gonna be juuuust fine. You think so, too?” Cause you have to remember, they’re just little people; sometimes you just want and need a “That sucks, and I totally understand.” It always worked like a charm.
There have been plenty of times watching the show where I have had to jump up from the sofa and run around the room going ‘Oh my god, oh my God, oh my God, that’s so disgusting! I can’t believe they did that!’
The guy with the skin and the sewing and the ripping, I was like ‘Jesus Christ!’
When I go home and my family’s… Everybody’s Cuban, and they’re all like, ‘We can’t watch dis, dis is so bloody!’”
The element even on set, which you’re so aware of what— of how fake things are? In this case, you’re aware of how fake they’re not.
Part of me wants Sirius to be totally inconspicuous about his gender/sexual identity because he thinks it’s no ones business and a part of me wants him to dramatically stand up at breakfast, say “I’m too queer to be here” and go back to bed
im watching Bones again and i’m on the ep where hodgins finds out that one of his sex tricks is written into bones’ novel…. like ok i haven’t had sex with that many people but the entire concept of men having foolproof sex tricks just seems like a joke??? what are these mythical ‘moves’ that keep appearing in fiction that supposedly make sex so good that ppl talk about them and revere them like trophies of their masculinity
like someone should write abt a mythical sex move and then at the end it’s revealed it’s just fisting. like, there’s one guy at the office that’s just really really incredibly irredeemably good at fisting
ahah guess what fuckwad just realized that the 23 hard copies of his story he brought in to class last Monday were not sufficient evidence that he had done the fucking assignment, but also had to submit it online as well and has now done that almost a WEEK late fuck this fuck everything
