how does one tell a boy that one likes him
I am a boy and have a foolproof plan for this:
- text them and start playing one of those 20q games
- if they start being a dodgy fella drop em
- if they ask “You like anyone?”
reply Yeah, you.
- If they give you a negative reply sayin they dont like you back then just correct yourself to “*Yeah, you?”
dude that is genius
slow clappin’ it out.

If you’re not a feminist, you either don’t know what feminism is, or you’re a bag of dicks.
That is all.
I never gave much notice of this statistic. Until I found out that a co-worker with the same job title as me was being paid $2/hour more than I was. Although I had been working a year longer than he had.
I thought, oh prob a mistake. No, my other co worker (female) with the same job who was hired a month after him was being paid $2 less as well.
The ironic part is that I found out about this, bc he and I were talking about feminism. And he says women are equal, and I pointed out women are paid less. And when I told him how much I was paid, his jaw dropped. Sadly, I proved my point.

I think Vampirella is still recovering from her fight with a giant crab.
I was using this picture as an example for a post on Escher Girls of the straight (cis) male gaze influencing panel construction and how we are forced to view a character from a certain perspective in a scene, and I finally realized what was going on here.
I’ve never really looked at it carefully, I just always thought she was changing or just posing or something. I only now realized she’s supposed to be morphing her clothes and destroying the house. But, because it’s just like butt shot, butt shot, butt shot, butt shot, I never picked up on what was going on because the panel focus is so much on her butt and that one shot of her body that it’s hard to know what exactly is going on, especially since she’s barely moving, it’s just static butt shots (and the same one copy pasted 3 times at the end). The main focus was to give us butt shots & a full body shot featuring her boobs and crotch.
Not just can it be distracting to constantly have this kind of perspective, but sometimes it can really detract from your immersion and understanding of a scene if you feel like the “camera” is just so focused on looking at women’s butts and breasts that the other, often important, storytelling elements are being ignored.
Just a follow up/example on the last post with the video about the straight (cis) male gaze.

I couldn’t find a good quality of this on Tumblr, so I decided to add one myself. It’s old, but I love it. I actually cried while reading this.

I was just thinking about this comic (oh wow, this was made in 2005) ever since people started posting Animal Crossing New Leaf stuff on Tumblr.
Tempted to order this game online but I’m gonna wait till the local game shop has the game…
tears tears TEARS
i’ve always seen this as a gif (first time i saw it was on 4chan i think back in 06 or 07) but im glad there’s FINALLY a source to both the comic and where it was first written. i cry every time i read it.

fill a tray with water. blow, fan, stir, dab, and drag paint or colored ink across its surface. put a sheet of washi paper on top to stain it with the floating art.
though called “turkish” paper marbling by europeans, this design technique was developed in east asia, central asia, and the islamic world. it is an important part of turkic, tajik, indian, and other asian and middle eastern cultures.
