this won’t get 1% of the women’s version of this post.
the world we live in, and people in general don’t care about men. we are pretty much robots who aren’t allowed to show emotion. we’re taught from a young age that boys don’t cry.
fact is women are sexualised, men are idealised. because men can’t be raped because they’re big and strong right? right? yea, pretty much the idiots view of living.
signal boost this shit
reblogging because I cannot stand when people act like women are the only things in the world
how about you stop using tragic stories of men who were raped just to get a dig in at women? you shouldn’t be reblogging this because ‘people act like women are the only things in the world’ you should be reblogging it because these men deserve to have their stories told and we need more awareness for male rape.
stop using the horrible, violently wrong and tragic things that happened to these man to turn this into a sly dig at women.
that “idiots view of living” in which men are seen as too “strong” for rape is exactly the sort of patriarchal idea that feminism tries to fight, but i’m sure you knew that already
Totally thought I had answered this already… Sorry Jess!!
189. Last Book I Read:
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. It took me over a year to read because there were so many other books that were so much shorter. But I did finally finish it! And I’m currently working on reading his second book. Which is also AMAZING.
176. Last YouTube Video Watched:
I can honestly say that I haven’t the slightest clue. It has been so long since I’ve been on YouTube that I’m not even sure I could tell you when the last time was. xD
170. What did you do yesterday?
I was working in a soils lab doing triaxial strength tests~! I think it’s super fun & cool… but probably because I am an engineer and a total nerd. Here’s a picture of the sand failure we produced by squishing it. :)
166. [I Believe In…] Myself:
Generally speaking, yes. I have my doubts about how well I will cope with being completely financially independent once I graduate from college, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.
160. [I Believe In…] Soul Mates:
I believe there are men out there who are perfect for me. But that’s just it, I believe there are men. I would still call them soul mates, and I definitely believe they exist. But I don’t believe that every single person in the world only has one perfect match out there.
I also believe that you can find the right person at the wrong time. In which case, even if you do belong together, you won’t end up together. I believe this because I have experienced it. But I also believe there is another Mr. Right out there, and we will find each other at the right time.
109. [Here’s what I think about…] Gas Prices:
I think it’s hilarious that as you move towards the center of town, gas prices increase. There is a difference of $0.10/gallon between where I live on the outskirts and where the university is 7 miles away.
104. [Here’s what I think about…] the future:
I’m excited and nervous. Three of my closest friends graduate this year and I haven’t the faintest clue what I will do without them next year. :(
But I can’t wait to go out and get a job in civil engineering. I kind of want to fast forward through my master’s degree because I’ve heard it’s hell. But other than that, I’m very optimistic about the future :)
95. [Last time I…] got my nails done:
Saturday. :) But, my mom and I do our own. She does my gel tips and I paint her nails. haha
82. I have gotten a speeding ticket:
Never. *knocks on wood*
60. I lose all respect for people who:
do things they know will hurt someone else. Also people who ask for your advice multiple times and then ignore it and come back for more advice. I ALREADY TOLD YOU WHAT TO DO. LISTEN. *smacks over the head*
6. [My Favorites] Flower:
Star Gazing Lilies. Alstroemeria come in a close second, though. :3
Game of Thrones AU: in which Joffrey is transformed into a llama and forced to travel cross-kingdom, all whilst learning the true meaning of humility and friendship
Or… Maybe whilst traveling, llama Joffrey encounters the roving band of wolves everyone talks about. And it’s lead by Nymeria. And the pack eats him.
That moment when you’re finally on your crush’s radar, but he’s asking for advice on his girl problems…
2: What was the last book you read?
City of Glass by Cassandra Clare. I’d read the first two, but hadn’t finished the first trilogy, so I thought I should. xD
3: What is the worst book you’ve ever read?
Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury. I had to read it for 7th Grade Lit.
22: Do you mark/highlight/dog ear your books or keep them in perfect condition?
If it’s for a class, I fold corners, highlight, and write in the margins. But… if it’s for fun, I try to keep them as perfect as possible. I do have the habit of folding over spines in paperbacks, and reading near water… so generally not perfect. xD Books should look loved. :3
31: Favorite villain in a book?
The main masterminds in American Gods by Neil Gaiman. I would tell you, but it would ruin the entire book. So suffice to say, they’re both tricky little bastards. ;D
