WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH STRAIGHT BOYS
I feel this on a whole notha level
I read several dozen stories a year from miserable, lonely guys who insist that women won’t come near them despite the fact that they are just the nicest guys in the world.
..I’m asking what do you offer? Are you smart? Funny? Interesting? Talented? Ambitious? Creative? OK, now what do you do to demonstrate those attributes to the world? Don’t say that you’re a nice guy — that’s the bare minimum.
“Well, I’m not sexist or racist or greedy or shallow or abusive! Not like those other douchebags!”
I’m sorry, I know that this is hard to hear, but if all you can do is list a bunch of faults you don’t have, then back the fuck away…
Don’t complain about how girls fall for jerks; they fall for those jerks because those jerks have other things they can offer. “But I’m a great listener!” Are you? Because you’re willing to sit quietly in exchange for the chance to be in the proximity of a pretty girl (and spend every second imagining how soft her skin must be)? Well guess what, there’s another guy in her life who also knows how to do that, and he can play the guitar. Saying that you’re a nice guy is like a restaurant whose only selling point is that the food doesn’t make you sick. You’re like a new movie whose title is This Movie Is in English, and its tagline is “The actors are clearly visible”.
IM GONNA PEE IT LOOKS LIKE SOME SHOUNEN BATTLE IS ABOUT TO BEGIN
I was about to scroll past but then I got it.
h my god
This is real.
Why does it take actual effort to sound calm and normal during phone calls.
this is what I mean by it shouldn’t be any different the other way round
"Anne Bonny and Mary Read were pirates, as renowned for their ruthlessness as for their gender, and during their short careers challenged the sailors’ adage that a woman’s presence on shipboard invites bad luck."
Sculpture by Erik Christianson.
I’m not entirely sure that the statue really needed to have a tit out.
How dare women try to have nipples.
Actually I’ve seen this before and I can tell you— it’s because these women were bad ass pirates and when they killed someone they’d expose one or both breasts so that when their victim died, (s)he knew that they were killed by a woman.
ACTUALLY Anne Bonny purposely wore loose fitting clothes and displayed her breasts openly at all times during battle - mainly because men were distracted by them, and she took pleasure in killing said men while they were too busy staring at her breasts. Mary Read dressed mainly as a man (after posing as her deceased brother, Mark, for the entirety of her childhood) and both ladies cross-dressed from time to time, hopping between ships. They were known as the ‘fierce hell cats’ due to their ferocious tempers, and were key elements to Captain ‘Calico Jack’ Rackham’s crew - they were the only two known female pirate’s in the Golden Age of Caribbean piracy. IN FACT when the ship was captured by the British Navy, Anne and Mary were the ONLY TWO pirates who fought while the males of the crew hid - they were all tried to be hung as pirates but Bonny and Read were both pregnant and were pardoned.
Calico Jack was a lover to Bonny, and as he was to be hung, Bonny’s final words to him were, “Had you fought like a man, you need not be hung like a dog.” Bonny and Read were possibly two of the most badass fucking pirates and they were FEMALE. The more you know.
(also Anne Bonny and I almost share a birthday - she was born March 8th, I was born March 4th. oh fuck yes.)
why shouldn’t being asian, a trait that 60% of the world’s population possess, be considered the default for humanity?
because human beings are diverse and there are a million ways to be normal and non-heterosexuals have been oppressed for centuries by the idea of heterosexuality as the default you little shit
Anyone who thinks that a group being the “default” is based solely on that group being a majority is lying to themselves. Intersex people and red-haired people exist in about the same proportions in the US (and consequently, gay, bi and ace people outnumber red-haired people by quite a bit), yet being intersex is seen as a deviation from the default whereas red hair is seen as a natural, albeit rare, variation in human hair colors. The idea of a “default” race, sexuality, gender identity, etc. is 100% socially constructed.
for that matter, women slightly outnumber men, but maleness is still considered default. think of the language we use for mixed groups: “dudes”, “guys”, “fellas”. there are more women on earth than there are men, but how do you think folks would react if I walked into a mixed gender party and hollered, “hey, ladies, how are y’all doing tonight?”
yeah. “normal” is bullshit. “default” is bullshit. the word you want is “common”, and something being common doesn’t automatically make it special than something being rare.
If we’re gonna go by numbers, insects are the default. Sorry straight people.
i will do a lot of things but admitting im cold to my mum who told me to bring a jacket isn’t one of them
