Okay, so it’s been a week and a half and I am still hopping mad about the Time War retcon. I know, I know. I know. I mean, it’s not keeping me up nights or anything, but every time I try to engage with fandom I just end up
So this is my attempt to just lay it all out, say my piece, make all of my totally correct and completely cogent arguments and hopefully just go back to “yeah that”ing in other people’s posts.
It’s rull long. You’ve been warned.
A study on masculinity and aggression from the University of South Florida found that innocuous – yet feminine – tasks could produce profound anxiety in men. As part of the study, a group of men were asked to perform a stereotypically feminine act – braiding hair in this case - while a control group braided rope. Following the act, the men were given the option to either solve a puzzle or punch a heavy bag. Not surprisingly, the men who performed the task that threatened their masculinity were far more likely to punch the bag; again, violence serving as a way to reestablish their masculine identity. A follow-up had both groups punch the bag after braiding either hair or rope; the men who braided the hair punched the bag much harder. A third experiment, all the participants braided hair, but were split into two groups: those who got to punch the bag afterwards and those who didn’t. The men who were prevented from punching the bag started to show acute signs of anxiety and distress from not being able to reconfirm their masculinity.
Lol men are fucking lunatics.
- Shut up and listen
- Ask me, don’t tell me
- Prepare to be wrong
- Call fellow men out on problematic behaviour
- Never dismiss the lived experiences of women
- Do not attempt to take a leadership role
PREPARE TO BE WRONG.
they don’t do the shut up and listen part well….
somehow lists like this always end up about hurt man-feels, which means they didn’t understand the list and where it said “shut up and listen”
"It is a Herculean task for women to try to define the meaning and worth of their lives in terms different from those that prevail in their community. So some security can always be found in surrendering to, and even helping to strengthen, the accepted gender norms." — Karen McCarthy Brown
ok the ebay listing for the HUGE prototype wing piece i made is live!
I MUST stress that this is an experimental piece, it is NOT perfect! Please read the description carefully before bidding.
I will make more of these super huge style wings with a similar layering look as well as the smaller 90” wool ones that i just sold. These take a pretty long time to do and cost a good amount to make ( they burn through the fancy dye pretty fast!) but i love the look and would like to make more costume-y stuff.
And of course pleaaaaase do not bid if you cannot pay. I will not break up the cost into installments and i can’t wait a few weeks to be paid. Please remember this is my job so these auctions are my paycheck. We all like to get our paychecks on time! :)
This is a handmade wing shawl/wrap PROTOTYPE that i created to explore the patterns and techniques that would be ideal for my wraps. It is very much a rough + experimental piece! It is vital that the bidder understand that this is a prototype and has imperfections. It can still serve as a wearable piece but is heavier and more stiff than i wanted..also HUGE! So please do not expect perfection. I’m just selling this to cover the cost of this experimentation ( materials cost so much) and because i honestly dont know what im going to do with it. I think it could make someone else very happy.
It is made from dyed and hand painted felt layers. It measures 111” across. Do not machine wash or dry clean, spot clean by hand with cold water. Dye is heat set so it will last but do treat it with a little care.
I have a MIGHTY NEEEEEED
this is super awesome
white people need to stop thinking shit is a matter of opinion.
you are getting proven wrong with statistics, experiences, research and facts. you have people defending their own humanity and existence and you think we’re arguing “opinion vs. opinion”?
Things that are matters of opinion: “McDonald’s fries taste awful.” “Blue is a lovely color.” “Puppies are cuter than kittens.” Things that are NOT matters of opinion: A person’s right to exist, to love, to eat, to fuck, to create, to have space, to work, to have medical care, to be free from oppression and hatred and violence.
