“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
yeah but think about this from the boy’s perspective too
this doesn’t NECESSARILY mean the boys have a deep set contempt for anything “girly”. they are terrified.
they are terrified of how they would be seen by their male counterparts if they showed some desire to do anything feminine. i don’t care what you say, for the majority of junior high school boys, it is a challenge to say that you’d like to try putting on makeup or wearing a dress. can you IMAGINE the backlash from that in most cases?
even if there wouldn’t be a backlash, there’s still stigma. if boys that age show empathy, emotions or anything else deemed ‘feminine’ they are bullied to within an inch of their lives, from other boys who just don’t know any better.
please stop making feminism all about hating men because it’s NOT WORKING and you’re just distancing yourself even more from the people who also need help.
also, i notice there is no source here, or anything at all about the method of study. DON’T TRY AND MAKE A JUDGEMENTAL POINT FROM SOMETHING YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT KJGAHLDKJF. were they interviewed as a group? individually? in pairs? interviewed by someone their own gender? we don’t know. would have been nice for that citation ‘103’ to have been given.
Can we appreciate that this is a really good example of how tumblr is just a bit toxic because it illustrates really well how unwilling people are to better themselves and how everyone seems to feel justified in their being this way? It’s just It really disappoints me sometimes, I’m sorry.
^^ It’s not just a bit toxic, it’s really toxic. It’s not okay to just do nothing and accomplish nothing. Sure you have some bad days, but you tried and you need to keep on trying. It could be with anything, be it work, school, a project, and even yourself and self discovery.
Somedays you want a break and that fine and few days to just relax is always fine. But to get stuff done is something that’s just part of life. The main picture is actually a good step process on how to tackle problems or your day.
A sense of humor can make everything better. Sex isn’t like it is in the movies or in porn. There will be strange and weird and awkward sounds, there might be a silly interruption like the cat or a kid… you might knock heads or trip getting undressed. Sex is funny, foreplay is funny and sometimes you need to just laugh. It will keep things from getting awkward! If you take sex too seriously you aren’t truly enjoying it!
Not to mention a sense of humor can be really sexy no matter what your gender identity is!
this comic is literally my favorite thing on tumblr.
i’ve always said if you can’t laugh with the person you’re having sex with while you’re having sex with them you shouldn’t be having sex with them.
My husband once walked up behind me while i was sitting in the living room just watching t.v…and he put his penis on my shoulder and said “hello..”
THIS WAS HIS SEDUCTION.
THIS WAS HIS IDEA OF HOW TO GET ME INTO BED.
it worked, but not before I laughed for days.
For that last comment.
I always had a ton of weird funky condoms at my place because I volunteered with Planned Parenthood and did a lot of sex education and sex positive work. I literally had no less than like thirty different types of condoms at a time. So when it came time to grabbing a condom it was a grab bag of WHO KNOWS what you’ll end up with.
Long story short, my boyfriend grabs one, puts it on, heat of the moment type thing, a some point we both look down and see it’s an ELECTRIC GREEN condom. Dead pan he looks me straight in the eye and in his best impression goes “HEY HO. KERMIT DEE FROG HERE.” And I COMPLETELY LOST IT.
On a totally different occasion I said “don’t stop” and he sang ALL of Don’t Stop Believing. All of it. All of it. Right then and there. Without stopping.
Literally every time this is reblogged it’s yet another story added that could easily be about Robin and I’s sex life.
For the Journey reference.
i was masturbating on my bed once and my bf walked in completely non-plussed. he could see what i was doing and he said “don’t forget the groceries are coming between 12 and 1 tomorrow” and got into bed and went to sleep
