So, I have a huge problem with the scishow video on trypophobia. I watched it a couple hours ago and I’m still not calm. I knew I have a mild case of it before, so I clicked the video thinking it’d be nice to know its possible source. While I realized it might contain some images I may not like, I wasn’t expecting the fest of triggering images at the end of the video. The smallpox one or that effing frog will be stuck in my brain for the next couple weeks, thank you very much. I ended watching it with my stomach at my throat, my skin crawling and my heath throbbing.
Essentially, it’s like talking about arachnophobia and showing pictures of spiders while going “do you like this spider? How about this one? Or maybe THIS one?”. A little bit cruel, imho.
I watched it a while before midnight. It’s past 3am and I wasn’t able to fall asleep due to this video, so I’m annoyed, stressed and rambling.
Men who can’t cook, clean, or even do their own laundry are not “cute” and “in need of a woman to care for them”. They are spoiled brats so dependent on gender roles that they never bothered to learn the minimal skills to take care of themselves.
OK, so I finished my modelmaking course at college a couple of months ago now and finally got round to posting about one model in particular. One of our last group projects was a client model of a narrow gauge heritage railway down in Corris, Wales. It will be put on display in the museum there where it will reside for the next 30+ years, so we had to do a good job on it. On one side of the model is a graveyard and I was allocated the task of drawing up the plans for the gravestones in AutoCAD. I suggested to the class that as they were going to be so small, (only 40mm high as I recall) we should engrave our names on them as a lasting and subtle note of who constructed it all. Everyone was up for it so we all get a front row gravestone but with less than twenty of us in the class and nearly fifty gravestones to make, we needed more names…sooo… :P
Many are tributes to actors, modelmakers and artists of note but most are of our favourite fictional characters and come on, I couldn’t let this opportunity go by without paying tribute to some of my favourite, and sadly dearly departed fictional friends.
Calo and Galdo Sanza share a grave as I thought they’d probably argue over who got the best stone, while Ezri gets her own (and she got the fanciest one IMO). Father Chains got a little extra text added to his stone because I thought he’d have appreciated it. Bug has his full name on his too, though someone else glued the stones on so he’s now sitting between The Doctor and Shepard Book from Firefly rather than being with his friends which is a little sad, but he’s not too far away so that’s something. I sadly ran out of time to do one for Nazca but she’s there in spirit I hope.
So yeah, a little far from Camorr, but if any GB fans are ever in Wales, go visit Corris and see a permanent tribute to some of the most sorely missed characters ever. (also, praise the model very loudly - it took most of our sanity to get the godsdamned thing finished!)Oh my god. This is exceedingly awesome, but it was the headstone marked PRACTICAL EFFECTS that slew me.
“kill myself” was the most common answer when they contemplated the possibility of life as a girl
Yeah, tell me again how misogyny “isn’t real” and men and boys actually “love”, “like” and “respect the female sex”? This is how deep misogynistic propaganda runs in this world. Men and boys are so viscerally contemptuous of anything or anyone who/that is female or feminine, or perceived to be female or feminine, that they would rather commit suicide than to be associated with— or become a member of— the female sex. As Germaine Greer said, “women have no idea how much men hate them.”
they would rather die then be treated how they treat us
Evening Post: August 12, 1899.
"She immediately alighted, caught hold of the astonished youth, and gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists in a scientific fashion…”
I would love to know what this means.
I think that might be code for “punched him in the balls with devastating accuracy”.
