It’s ridiculous to me when people claim that behavioural sex differences are intrinsic without even being aware of the subtle ways in which male and female children are taught that they are fundamentally different from one another (most obviously, through dress). When you dress a boy in a t shirt and pants and a girl in a skirt and a halter top (yes, it happens), you are marking their differences and implying that these differences are meaningful (that is the purpose of feminine clothing, after all). I’ve seen little girls try to climb trees while wearing dresses and ridiculous baby-heels with pink fluff on them. I’ve seen little girls try to chase after their friends on the playground only to promptly twist an ankle or slip due to wearing wedges or dress-shoes. I’ve seen little girls get told off for hanging upside-down on monkey bars because their dresses fell down around their heads and exposed their underwear. Parents and society both incapacitate girls from the get go, teaching them that their appearance comes before their enjoyment and physical capabilities, and then they have the gall to go on and on about how cute it is that, despite their liberal views on ‘gender (*cough*)’, their daughter was never really active and outdoorsy, preferring to just sit and play with dolls.
my mum sent me a frantic email today saying “PLEASE give me all information about your finances ASAP so i can send in your FAFSA”
and i emailed her back with the information but at the end said “wow i thought the deadline wasn’t until may?”
my mum: “it is, i just want to make sure we get it done in time”
One of the biggest regrets I’ve ever had was joining this Internet space.
lmao. i love this. the pro-european protesters in ukraine were brave freedom fighters who want ‘liberty’. the pro-russian protesters in sevastopol are brainwashed dupes who are so stupid and scared of change that they’re blindly agitating for radical ‘autonomy’ :(
idk why i care so much. if my roommate hates me i know why she does and i wasn’t in the wrong. but it bothers me!!!
i went down to a different floor to use their laundry room and i saw my roommate in their common room just chillin’. by herself. she could’ve used our floor’s common room, or even, you know, our actual dorm room, but no, she went to an entirely different floor. this makes me feel a bit better actually because this can’t all be because of how much she hates me, yeah? like
