Like this is legitimately interesting and I’m not trying to make a point but honestly curious- why do artists apparently draw women as male torsos + breasts??0

because apart from amount of breast tissue, all humans have the same chest anatomy. If you ever have the opportunity to look at cadavers, without skin and fat we’re all basically identical.

This is actually sadly relevant. I had a lecture this summer about sign languages and Deaf culture and when I was finished, one hearing girl from the audience stayed behind to ask me some more question.
She asked me: “And your parents use sign language, right?” Like it was the most obvious thing in the world and why is she even asking this, of course my parents must know sign language.
"No… They don’t, actually."
"And how do you communicate, then?"
"Talking?"
"But… isn’t that complicated for you?"
"It is, sometimes."
"They probably didn’t have time for it…" she said. And I haven’t the heart to tell her that my father was offered sign language courses several times, that I offered to teach them some signs and that they always refused.
But I did told her: “It is not that rare. Most of deaf people I know have hearing parents who don’t sign.”
It’s the sad truth. People are willing to pay for surgeries to “repair” their children, but they are not willing to learn something to communicate with them.

i’d like to add onto this with my own personal experience, too. i was born hearing, but as soon as i was diagnosed as HoH, my parents didn’t do anything to learn ASL. they were quick to put me in classes, but they wouldn’t when i suggested to them that they take the classes with me so that we could learn.
i’ve tried to teach my mom how to sign numerous times, but she always says that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” to which i tell her that she can learn, she just doesn’t want to. which is true. neither of my parents want to learn how to sign, but they want me to be able to hear perfectly so they don’t have to repeat themselves.
little do they know that their frustration with me not being able to hear them would be solved if they would just learn how to sign. maybe signing something to me once instead of repeating themselves four times and then getting mad would be more beneficial.

I’m absolutely shocked at this, it’s never crossed my mind that many parents wouldn’t even try to meet their hard of hearing kids halfway.

This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.

Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.

AJ even confirmed that this is what this scene was a metaphor for (x) - just because i saw someone say today that this is not what this scene is about

'We were very conscious that it was a metaphor for rape': The actress explained how the scene in which her character has her wings ripped off her body while in a drug-induced sleep had to be something 'so violent and aggressive' that it would make her 'lose all sense of her maternity, her womanhood and her softness'

They had it comin’ all along. ’Cause if they used us and they abused us. How could they tell us that we were wrong?

Day 39 (or so). When I started this little project, I guessed I would use approximately 2-2½ months, or 60-75 days, and so far I would have to say I’m doing pretty well ^^

The next time a man starts yelling at you, cut him off and tell him you just can’t talk to him when he’s being so emotional.

I have done this and can confirm that is a LOT of fun to watch them implode afterward.

Bonus points: Tell them you think it’s cute when they get so angry.

The fact that asexuals feel obligated and pressured to have unwanted sex makes me so upset

Protect and support asexuals at all costs

Pictures, memes, and cartoons that depict mental illnesses like this are uninformed, lazy, and just plain obnoxious. Honestly, they annoy me in a way reserved for very few things in life.

And here’s why: people who don’t have ADD/ADHD, bipolar disorder, or OCD see these things and laugh, thinking, “OMG THAT IS SO ME” just because they relate to the image. It trivializes the importance of mental disorders by reducing them to a caricature of what society thinks the disorders are. There are non-insulting ways to humorously share the relatable parts of these mental disorders. But the images above range from insensitive to obnoxious to just fucking ignorant.

Images like these also perpetuate misinformation and misundersanding of the disorders and their symptoms. You don’t have OCD just because you like order and symmetry; you’re not bipolar just because you have a wide-range of emotions; and you don’t have ADD or ADHD because you also have a non-linear thought process, as depicted above.

Mental disorders are much more than memes on the internet.

Oh my god I’m so glad someone finally made a post about this… I haven’t seen the others before but one time I was in Kitson looking for a specific shirt and I saw a cute sweater with writing on it.  I unfolded it to read it and I saw the text from the last meme and I just… I had no idea how to react.  I was half angry and half confused as to how anybody, no, MULTIPLE people could actually have the ignorance to write this, suggest it for a sweater, approve it, run it through manufacturing, and sell it.  It’s disgusting.
