Words, pictures and whatnot of a twenty-something nerdy girl. Still figuring out who I am, what life is and how to combine the two.

I can confidently acknowledge that this character greatly influenced me as a teenager

Dear Man, Please help me to deal with the men who incessantly explain everything to me. In the past fortnight I have been subjected to long and unsolicited explanations of how gaslights, steam engines and the telegraph function. Worse yet, I am well enough aware of modern science to know that many of these explanations are wrong. How can I put off the next man who assails my sense and sensibilities so? - Considering Earmuffs in August

ask-a-man:

Dear Earmuffs,

There is, alas, no way to accomplish your objective. The man who wishes to lecture you on a subject you already understand will lecture you no matter what you do. If you protest strenuously, he will assume you an ignoramus for ignoring his maleness, and he will speak all the more loudly and at length. If you fall silent, he will take your lack of speech as consent to hear more, and will go on and on. Short of coshing him over the head—an activity which, while temporarily satisfying, may have lengthier repercussions—I have no suggestions.

This sort of ordeal is only unbearable because you have no control over it. It is like an avalanche: it starts on high, and by the time it reaches your position, you are buried under it. But while you cannot stop it, you can control it—and I suspect that I am about to give a great many women an occupation for dinner parties for years to come.

Change your objective. Instead of wanting to put him off, draw him out. The more incorrect his statements, the more false praise you must heap upon his head.

"What is this? I did not know that the telegraph was based on scarcely perceptible sounds. Please tell me more! What would these noises sound like? Can you repeat them? Can you repeat them louder?"

Men who insist on knowing everything about everything cannot fail to answer such a question. The more ridiculous a man is, the more you should draw him out—and the more he will hang himself, as you quietly, sweetly hand him the rope.

Meet the eye of the other women around the table and share a quiet laugh with them. Award each other points for every ridiculous statement a man makes. When you reach ten, throw a party and do not invite any men.

Sincerely yours,
Stephen Shaughnessy
Imperturbably Male

Just imagine the Avengers going to Ikea, and Thor is the only one who can pronounce the name of anything. 

This is disproportionately hilarious to me.

Always reblog

Woah

well he really should have worn more protective clothing if he didn’t want that to happen
sounds to me like he was asking for it

Are we really sure he was actually shot and decapitated? Idk, sounds like something he would’ve made up. Guys make false decapitation accusations all the time, you know. 

If he didn’t want to be decapitated, he shouldn’t have worn a shirt that showed off his neck

I mean, not all woman decapitate people. I’m not like that.

Being an atheist is ok.
Being an atheist and shaming religion and spirituality as silly or not real is not ok.

Being a Christian is ok.
Being a homophobic, misogynistic, racist, or otherwise hateful person in the name of Christianity is not ok.

Being a reindeer is ok.
Bullying and excluding another reindeer because he has a shiny red nose is not ok.

As most of you probably know, someone somewhere dumped a deluge of purported nude photographs of a number of female celebrities online yesterday. The victims include the likes of Kate Upton, Victoria Justice, Ariana Grande, Kirsten Dunst, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Krysten Ritter, Yvonne Strahovski, and Teresa Palmer. But the focal point for this story has been Hunger Games/American Hustle actress Jennifer Lawrence, since the Oscar winning actress is perhaps the most famous actress on the planet right now. Without going into sordid details ( Justice and Grande have claimed their respective photos are fake, others have confirmed they are real), I’d like to make two very specific points. Ms. Lawrence and the other victims have absolutely nothing to apologize for in terms of the contents of the photos or the nature in which they were leaked. The story itself should not be addressed as if it were a scandal, but rather what it is: A sex crime involving theft of personal property and the exploitation of the female body.

Outlets as mainstream as People and CNN are referring to the photo leak as a “scandal.” All due respect, it’s not a scandal. The actresses and musicians involved did nothing immoral or legally wrong by choosing to take nude pictures of themselves and put them on their personal cell phones. You may argue, without any intended malice, that it may be unwise in this day-and-age to put nude pictures of yourself on a cell phone which can be act and/or stolen. But without discounting that statement, the issue is that these women have the absolute right and privilege to put whatever they want on their cell phones with the expectation that said contents will remain private or exclusive to whomever is permitted to see them just like their male peers. The burden of moral guilt is on the people who stole said property and on those who chose to consume said stolen property for titillation and/or sexual gratification.
