The fits and starts of a mind focused on the stories, worlds and universes that emerge from the primordial depths... That and random stuff I do to procrastinate and/or break through my writer's block.
Deconstructing Masculinity & Manhood with Michael Kimmel @ Dartmouth College
You know what I like, and feel is so important? That he doesn’t say “Men thinks those are THEIR positions”. He says “We think those are OUR positions.”
As a male feminist, he still doesn’t exclude himself from the group of men.
I wish those men he schooled got his point but somehow I doubt that. Obtuseness is a prerequisite to these people’s bubble of entitlement and privilege as well as the continued maintenance of said obliviousness..

There was an idea, Stark knows this, called The Avengers Initiative. The idea was to bring together a group of remarkable people, see if they could become something more. See if they could work together when we needed them to, to fight the battles that we never could. Phil Coulson died still believing in that idea, in heroes.Well, it’s an old fashioned notion.

which fucking fedora wearing friendzoned nerd made this thing
yeah but notice that the seal’s intent is to eat those fish and the shark offers a mutually beneficial relationship for them
in which a dudebro unintentionally makes a really accurate analogy for the reason that they’re single forever
That’s a whale shark. They’re docile and in no way threatening to people or those fish depicted. Seals, by contrast, will attack people, possibly out of a frustrated sense of entitlement combined with poor socialization skills.
When analogies fail but then actually are super truthful.
I think someone needs to put a fedora on the seal
LOLing forever at how the attempted insult on female intelligence boomeranged on the anonymous dudebro.
Way to go, dudebro. You sure showed us how smart and pithy you were by preaching the truth—the truth of how much of a douchebag you are.

Science has been severely misrepresented by authors. If you want to write about scientific worldviews accurately, here are some tips.
- If the scientific community saw something supernatural and could be assured it existed, they wouldn’t scream “that’s impossible!” or try to destroy it because it doesn’t fit their worldview. They would be more likely to say “How interesting. I wonder how this will change my theories. I’d better incorporate it into my worldview.”
- Scientists have morals just like the rest of us. In fact, many people become scientists because they want to help humanity. How is that so hard to understand?
- A whole lot of scientists love nature and want to preserve it.
- Scientists who have helped to create deadly weapons almost always regret it. Politicians who order those weapons to be used don’t.
- Science in general would be attracted to magic, not repulsed by it. A new thing to study with possible new applications to help mankind? How wonderful!
- How well a scientist understands people and gets along socially is up to the individual. They’re not an entire profession of evil, cold robots.
