Humorous photo manips from HBO's amazing "Game of Thrones" series, the occasional screensaver and maybe even some artwork, just for your viewing enjoyment.
*waits for the 8 bazillion posts about how stupid Tyrion is for not leaving when he had the chance*
What men mean when they talk about their “crazy” ex-girlfriend is often that she was someone who cried a lot, or texted too often, or had an eating disorder, or wanted too much/too little sex, or generally felt anything beyond the realm of emotionally undemanding agreement. That does not make these women crazy. That makes those women human beings, who have flaws, and emotional weak spots. However, deciding that any behavior that he does not like must be insane– well, that does make a man a jerk.
And when men do this on a regular basis, remember that, if you are a woman, you are not the exception. You are not so cool and fabulous and levelheaded that they will totally get where you are coming from when you show emotions other than “pleasant agreement.”
When men say “most women are crazy, but not you, you’re so cool” the subtext is not, “I love you, be the mother to my children.” The subtext is “do not step out of line, here.” If you get close enough to the men who say things like this, eventually, you will do something that they do not find pleasant. They will decide you are crazy, because this is something they have already decided about women in general.
Calling a woman ‘crazy’ annoys me on so many levels. It’s a huge oversimplification, it’s ableist, and it’s fucking lazy.
I have a theory as to why it’s so popular with men, though.
See, dealing with other people’s emotions is really, really difficult. This is true whether you’re male or female or kumquat or whatever. Sometimes we don’t feel like dealing with it, because it really is a lot.
But men, thanks to the patriarchy, have an easy out when it comes to women. If they don’t feel like dealing with a woman’s feelings, whatever they might be, they can just dismiss her as ‘crazy’. They don’t care (and some really don’t know) that doing this is horrible, dehumanizing, and belittling. The men who do this have what they want in the short term.
And that, I’m sorry, is fucking lazy. You do not get to dehumanize people because YOU are lazy. It says way more about the guy’s sense of basic human decency than it does about the woman’s sanity.
really done with this whole “breaking out” thing
i mean i know 95% is from the fact that it’s been so freaking humid and i’ve been sweating and gross
and 5% is hormones
but come on
can we not
Yep I know exactly what you mean. I break out like I’m a teenager and it’s effing ridiculous. Even when it’s not one bieberillion degrees out. :/
there is literally nothing a man who I am not attracted to in any shape or form can do to make me want him
I hate this idea that there are tips and tricks to getting women like the fact that you have to essentially deceive and disguise yourself in order for someone to like you is sf scary and weird to me
it also reinforces the idea that when a woman says no she means convince me or continue to try different things
like wtf that’s scary and violent thinking
I see this shit perpetuated in so many narratives within movies, television it’s scary af
and there are men who think this shit is normal that scares me
