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 annoying and sometimes bugs are downright TERRIFYING
When it comes to objectification, this is a great example of why comparing male strip clubs to Hooters is a “false equivalent.”
i’m creating a kickstarter for cojones right now
HOLY SHIT THO
If by ‘fuck the police’ you mean fuck the corrupt, prejudiced, racist system then yes, fuck the police, but if you mean fuck the police for stopping you from smoking weed and getting away with illegal behaviour then no, fuck you.
But what if I mean “I wish to have intercourse with that man in uniform”
then fuck the police
Half of the women I spoke to said , would he admit that’s he’s bit of a sexist, misogynistic — he sees women only in sexual terms? (x)
This is it, this is how I’m going to explain privilege to the next one.
THOSE LAST TWO GIF THOUGH. MALE FEMINISTS, PLEASE TAKE NOTE. I KNOW YOU DON’T WANNA BE SEXIST BUT PLEASE LISTEN TO WOMEN IF THEY TRY TO EXPLAIN HOW SOMETHING YOU SAID/DID IS PROBLEMATIC AND TAKE IT TO HEART, THANK YOU!
I agree with him. If you think I’m being sexist, let me know and I’ll work on it. I won’t get mad, promise.
honestly this mindset works for any kind of privilege - if someone from an oppressed group calls you out, don’t argue. Fix it.
RUSSEL BRAND IS MORE INTELLIGENT THAN ANYONE IN A POSITION OF POWER AND CUTE TO BOOT I AM SO ANGRY WHY IS HE NOT RULER OF THE WORLD
(pulled from transformers prime episode “evolution”, which is still new, so spoiler warning.)
so i have spent a lot of time telling my non-tf friends how fucking amazing the animation is in prime, and how its quality even increases in the later seasons
but fuck, this fight scene? i can watch this repeatedly and still be entranced
how magnus strains with the weight of his hammer, how predaking all but dances in order to regain his balance, how clean wheeljack’s flipping sequences are, how seamlessly the characters and background interact.
this shit is stunning.
not to mention the musical score.
also, if you think about it, they showed a full-on shot of magnus’ crushed and dismembered hand. if that were a human hand, that would be considered too graphic for a kid’s show. however, because it’s robotics, it’s kid safe.
but magnus still lost his fucking hand.
that’s fucking gruesome.
Theres a lot of fucking terrifying robot gore in the show i mean
Bulkhead RIPS OUT A MECH’S INNER WORKINGS FFS
People who make it a mission to use the word fuck in almost every sentence are so annoying like nobody cares how edgy you are relax and eat some vitamins
Why you trippin
Yeah why the fucking fuck are you tripping? How fucking dare you oh my fucking god I cannot fucking believe you think I just use fuck to sound edgy. I fucking pick out every single fucking word I say so particularly like fucking fuck off oh my fucking god FUCK
Case in point
the more you say a word the less it means
Six hundred goddamn AD
Six hundred. Goddamn AD.
This needs to be en-grained in every single living human.
i love this so much
[homestucks nodding as they reblog]
I swear I’ve never seen a fandom as chill about hate as Homestuck. Someone goes “HOMESTUCK SUCKS BLUH BLUH” and the Homestuck it’s directed at will just high-five them and go “DAMN STRAIGHT LOOK AT THIS BULLSHIT”
I’m actually pretty sure it was a homestuck who made this post
its funny to me because Homestuck is the most complex and deep and heart-wrenching story ive ever read but if you insult Homestuck i and every other person in this fandom will just agree without a second thought
More annoying asshole AUs please, like:
• kept kicking the back of my chair at the theatre au
• tried breaking into my flat when they were drunk bc they thought it was theirs au
• always arrives at the cafeteria 30 seconds before me and takes the last sandwich I like au
• repeatedly comes into the shop I work at and picks up a lettuce then half way through the shop decides they don’t want the lettuce and puts it back on the shelf next to them regardless of what aisle they’re in au
It reminds me of the “bike to work” movement. That is also portrayed as white, but in my city more than half of the people on bike are not white. I was once talking to a white activist who was photographing “bike commuters” and had only pictures of white people with the occasional “Black professional” I asked her why she didn’t photograph the delivery people, construction workers etc. … ie. the Black and [Latin@] and Asian people… and she mumbled something about trying to “improve the image of biking” then admitted that she didn’t really see them as part of the “green movement” since they “probably have no choice” –
I was so mad I wanted to quit working on the project she and I were collaborating on.
So, in the same way when people in a poor neighborhood grow food in their yards … it’s just being poor– but when white people do it they are saving the earth or something.
