I’m not like other girls!XD
I only have guy friends. I mean all girls do is start drama.
Oh my god, i hate sluts!
Other girls my age like to drink and party but i like to stay inside and read or watch netflix! I’m so weird.
All the girls in my school care about is makeup and shopping and all i care about is FOOD and VIDEO GAMES. lol sometimes i think i was born a guy.
This is everything.
Can I just say that these are amazing… mostly because I totally believe Lucille Bluth *would* give these looks in response to all these statements… but for totally different reasons.
Also my dash just needs more Lucille.
And we said NAY, WE ARE BUT MEN!
Since I started this blog four years ago I’ve reported on problematic merchandise featuring DC Comics IP too many times to mention. And it seems to go the same way:
1. Post on item
2. Get worked over in comments, Twitter and comics forums by people stating one or more of…
Now follow it up by having Superman and Wonder Woman both go ‘wait, what are we doing? This is stupid, let’s go back to our original love interests and never speak of this again.”
Seriously Supes and WW together is just…
watch the fat guy version of this video—where it’s a skinny guy turned fat and the girls meet up with him. it goes SO DIFFERENT. they actually talk about things other than his weight, and he even gets kissed.
go and look at the opposite video on youtube then look at the comments. Even though the women are clearly nicer and less judging than the men they still try to justify the men’s reactions and put down the women. It’s kind of disgusting actually. It’s one of those things that makes you sad that you live in this society.
"it makes me so sad to lie in a society where you can’t get sex or a free male out of a man you’ve lied to on the internet"
The experiment is actually a sham.
The ‘fat guy’ is an admitted dating expert. As in, he has a goddamn youtube channel. He knows how to date, he knows how to engage somebody and he knows immediately how to keep somebody sticking around. The woman? Not so much.
Look at the two videos. The woman literally talks about herself, doesn’t even attempt to engage the guy and doesn’t try to make him interested in her as a person. Like, when the girls call the guy out on being fat, guess what? He says “Yeah, it is an old photo, about 3 or 3 years”, she says “Oh, maybe 6 months” and CONSTANTLY tries to underplay it like she’s being cute.
The guy at least owned the fact that he was fat. The girl sat there was did pretty much everything to deflect. The guy did his best to put his dates at ease, when at the start you could see they were shocked and a bit put off. The girl didn’t, she deflected, made excuses, put the blame on the guy, and guess what? That doesn’t make somebody want to sit down and continue the date. It only makes them more agitated.
If anything, this highlights exactly what the problem is with hetero dating. uys are expected to be everything they can, to take the reigns, to lead the date by being engaging and funny. The girl doesn’t and is expected to sit there and be cute. Guess what? When all you’re expected to do is sit there and be entertained by your date, your date isn’t going to be fucking happy when you show up not looking like your profile.
Maybe if the girl actually, I dunno, acknowledged she was fat, didn’t try to shift blame, didn’t try to be ‘cute’ and tried to actually engage the guy, it might’ve worked.
And here’s the thing. Not only is this experiment massively biased, the fucking odds aren’t that bad either. Four men and four women. 4/4 women stayed, 1/4 men stayed. Guess what? With that margin of error you could’ve just had 4 nice women and 3 asshole guys. Hell, for all we know, they specifically selected women who listed “okay with fat guys” on their Tindr and picked men who listed “no fat women” on theirs.
As somebody who is actually taking courses on research, this is a goddamn travesty of a ‘social experiment’.
Always reblog schooling tumblr
Ah good, now i’ll reblog it.
There’s also the fact that - ignoring the fact the weight all together for a moment - yeah, you did lie to these people. In a dating situation, Fair or not… that’s one of the worst times to start things with a lie.
Dating is a hard thing to do and requires a lot of trust so… lying to 8 people and then declaring the three that left to be assholes is… not fair? Wouldn’t a better experiment be to just see how people who are overweight do *in general* on something like this?
Like, no deception whatsoever, just ‘hey let’s look at the statistics and get one person who is conventionally attractive and one person who isn’t and see how they both do on Tinder.
I mean… that seems like the best way to demonstrate social bias against overweight women?
But yeah either way, not a great experiment…
And you’ll never have one.
Totes reblogging for emphasis on that last line.
Yesterday, me and a number of friends were left disgusted by the racial stereotyping and casual misogyny running rife through the latest episode of Doctor Who, “The Caretaker”.
This morning, hellotailor made a comment on twitter that, in order to make any kind of…
Oh I’m going to regret this but…
I have a beef with saying that the Doctor’s comments about Danny’s intelligence had anything to do with race. It was made pretty clear from the outset that it was a lot more to do with the fact that Danny is a soldier and the Doctor hates soldiers.
Now is this stupid? Yes, incredibly and it was over-played. The Doctor’s dislike of soldiers has been wildly inconsistent in the past, so him acting like a total douche in the Caretaker was… stupid. Really, really stupid.
But racially motivated stupid? Probably not.
Everything else is more than valid though. The fact that apparently the big new thing they wanted to try now that the Doctor isn’t a love interest is ‘I hope he approves of my boyfriend’ is just… insulting. The fact that the only delinquent children so far have been black… probably unintentional but tone deaf.
I guess I’m saying, yes the Caretaker was horribly, offensively stupid… but I don’t think he was insulting Danny for not being white.
But this is why you don’t clumsily force in a sudden, passionate hatred for soldiers like this.
Oh Helios, you really are a daddy’s boy and you know it…
