gummy bear colour ratio is not something to be taken lightly
if I was a mosquito and I saw a giant human kill all my friends as they approached her, i’d stay the fuck away
just occurred to me that the three people I’ve dated in order have the birthdays september 17, 18, and 19. i should be cautious around anyone with a birthday in two days.
what happens if you’re distracted by the pro-life monsters waving their signs at your car in front of planned parenthood and you accidentally run one over? that’s so excusable yeah? hey and then their ‘p.p. kills’ would be accurate and you’d be doing them that favour
Teachers are often unaware of the gender distribution of talk in their classrooms. They usually consider that they give equal amounts of attention to girls and boys, and it is only when they make a tape recording that they realize that boys are dominating the interactions. Dale Spender, an Australian feminist who has been a strong advocate of female rights in this area, noted that teachers who tried to restore the balance by deliberately ‘favouring’ the girls were astounded to find that despite their efforts they continued to devote more time to the boys in their classrooms. Another study reported that a male science teacher who managed to create an atmosphere in which girls and boys contributed more equally to discussion felt that he was devoting 90 per cent of his attention to the girls. And so did his male pupils. They complained vociferously that the girls were getting too much talking time.
In other public contexts, too, such as seminars and debates, when women and men are deliberately given an equal amount of the highly valued talking time, there is often a perception that they are getting more than their fair share. Dale Spender explains this as follows:
“The talkativeness of women has been gauged in comparison not with men but with silence. Women have not been judged on the grounds of whether they talk more than men, but of whether they talk more than silent women.”
In other words, if women talk at all, this may be perceived as ‘too much’ by men who expect them to provide a silent, decorative background in many social contexts.
everyone is afraid of me when i have bad days which is on one hand good because you’re right I don’t want to talk to you and if you look at me i hope your eyes combust but then it sucks because i don’t want you to ignore me
this mac n cheese sucks because you shouldn’t trust anything so easy and vegan and don’t get anything with mustard seed unless you don’t hate mustard seed. I’m even more furious I have to go to work. I’d much rather boil myself alive in simmering cheese shit.
