So…I’m sitting in the kitchen with a few people i’m close with, and and I happen to over hear the following exchange:
Mr. X: “Oh, what’s that scent you’re wearing? It screams ‘Rape me!’”.
Ms Y: *Embarrassed/Nervous Laughter*
After I got over the shock of hearing something so horrendous, I tried to tell him that that’s not an acceptable thing to say, but he guffawed rather loudly, cut me off, then called me a ”Feminazi”, and stated that my claiming that there even -is- such a thing as male privilege is rubbish. I replied that a woman has a right to wear whatever scent she likes, purely for the purpose of personal edification, and that at no point is it alright to say that something a woman does/wears makes the idea of raping her a funny one. He then laughed this off, said I should lighten up, and that the reason I have no boyfriend is that I’m “not submissive enough” about things like this.
I won’t even waste my time contemplating how mind mindbogglingly stupid that idea is, but there’s no point when something like this can just be shrugged off. This? Is -pure- ignorance…and i’m honestly really ashamed to have to admit that this happened between me and someone I’m familiar with. I know I don’t normally make posts this long, or this personal…but i’m really upset about this right now.
From Why Evolution is True:
This is one of those times when scientists discover a structure whose function is absolutely mysterious. Piotr (Peter) Naskrecki, an entomologist, photographer and author working the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard, is currently in Mozambique, documenting his adventures at a website called The Smaller Majority. Piotr is one of the best animal photographers ever, and his Mozambique entries are not disappointing. His latest entry, “Mozambique Diary: Alipes“, recounts his finding a bizarre centipede, pictured below. It’s so new, in fact, that I don’t think it yet has a species name: it’s simply called Alipes (the genus) “sp.” (species).
Have a look at this baby, and realize that those appendages are not in the front, but are the modified rear legs of this arthropod. And their function is completely unknown.
lessons learned from anime
- don’t get inside the robot
- people with bad haircuts always lose
- the cute girl is psycho
- the cute guy isn’t human
- when in doubt scream “baka” and run away
- glasses should be adjusted with one finger in a condescending manner
- gotta catch em all
- and maybe probably respect your elders
IT’S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN
