SCIENCE HAS CONFIRMED THAT DOGS LOVE US BACK BECAUSE THEY GET THE SAME RUSH OF OXYTOCIN WHEN THEY LOOK AT US THAT WE GET WHEN WE LOOK AT THEM

robina-otaku:

Are you telling me that dogs are looking up to us and think “omg what an adorable fucking cutiepie”?

dear-bunni:

a while ago I read an article about how dogs love us back, but recognize that we’re different from them, while cats see us as bigger and clumsier than them, but do not consider us different  

princess-shatter:

Dogs: I am fuzzy creature and you are a different adorable creature and I love you!!!!!
Cats: I am lanky and graceful and you are a giant mess

purrypixel:

This is why cats occasionally try to bathe and feed us

deadmomjokes:

It’s true; cats see us as giant dumb hairless babies. That’s why they bring us half-dead prey– to teach us how to hunt and eat properly. That’s why they attack when we rub their bellies– that’s how parent cats teach kittens to defend themselves. That’s also why they meow– cats communicate with other adults on a frequency we can’t hear, but meow at kittens because their ears aren’t fully developed. They even specialized a set of meows they use only for humans, because we are especially deaf babies.

We are all of us dumb kittens.

Girls, romanticize yourselves. You are a queen. You are a warrior. You are an enchantress. You are a mermaid. You are a goddess. You are all these things and more, you are the stuff of fairytales.

Women, traumatize others. You are a dragon. You are a wolf. You are a bump in the night. You are the last thing they see in the darkness. You are all of these things and more, you are the heart of their fucking nightmares

Just something that’s been on my mind. Tumblr has this specific way of handling communities. These are just the ones that come by on my dash, I’m sure there are plenty more examples.

First they start out nice, tolerant, willing to listen and learn.

But they quickly become too nice and tolerant. Rather than simply accepting group X, they begin to overglorify them. They make them into something more special than people outside of group X, and coupled with their compulsive need to belong and feel special, desire to be a part of it too.

In comes the appropriation. If they can’t be a part of it, they’ll make themselves a part of it, one way or another. And is someone in group X not acting the way their fantasy version of them acts? Call them out on it!

They become so fanatical that they begin to talk over, or drive out the original people of group X.

And then finally they manage to become so hateful, their initial tolerance has turned into cold, terrifying intolerance. Calling gay/trans men privileged over white straight cis women, telling transsexual people to die, purposefully triggering people they dislike into panic attacks, defending Muslims to the point of calling the attack on Charlie Hebdo justified. And sending death threats to anyone who dares to disagree.

Being excluded from a group or community because you don’t belong there is not oppression.

It simply means that group does not describe or fit you as an individual.

If you can’t accept that, you have far deeper issues than your imagined ‘oppression’.

Inb4 tons of hate messages and death threats.

poppypicklesticks:

I think there needs to be one about disability and mental illness.  Diagnosis privilege is a thing?  Accusations of gatekeeping?  Non-disabled people policing disabled people about “ableist” language often whilst calling them retards on anon? 

not-reality:

Ha! This is actually a really neat little diagram of how Tumblr as a whole “thinks”.

"We are advocates for human rights. What? Them? No, they aren’t human"

tenaflyviper:

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED TO TUMBLR.

THIS IS HOW IT ALL WENT WRONG.

nenilein:

I am so sure I am going to have people unfollow me for this, but this dangerously worrying tendency is something that has really been scaring me for a while now, so I really need to support this post. 

Of course, all generalization is imperfect, so there are certainly many cases where this model doesn’t apply, but from what I have seen in the past 20 months? A large part of tumblr is on this exact slippery slope and it’s toxic, frightening and destructive for all intelligent discourse on this website. 


I just hope Soup won't turn out like this

Jessica Wise: How Fiction Can Change Reality

Reading and stories can be an escape from real life, a window into another world — but have you ever considered how new fictional experiences might change your perspective on real, everyday life.

When we identify with characters in stories, we are more likely to adopt their behaviours.  Cool beans.  Check out Nedra Weinreich’s blog for more on using storytelling in health promotion.

The real problem with people fussing over Pluto all the time is it represents the priorities of the public - preserving traditions rather than accepting facts. The pursuit of science is about building a sustainable catalog of truths, and there is no advantage in altering truths to appease nostalgia.

Boob sizes and perception
Sort of a continuation of the Pants comic here.
(I might turn these things into a webcomic series.)

And it's also based on my actual frustration, cuz honestly, my boobs are average-sized, but since people *coughmyfamilycough* keep calling them big, I counterattacked them & prefer to call them small & say I'm amost flat-chested most of the time. If they were actually big then lying down on my stomach would be uncomfortable, and I lie down & sleep on my stomach a lot.
(also I was mistaken for a boy a lot too which means my boobs can't be that big).

Cheers to people with the same problem *toasts*

ChaosLife: Wig Worry Part 2

When K and I made last week’s comic, we already had a plan to include a Part 2 that featured some of the reactions my more feminine appearance elicited from men. I’d like to start this out by saying: Of course not all men are like this/do this/say these things, etc. K and I are surrounded by awesome men in our lives daily, which I think is what made this experience even more jarring for me. I know men can act like decent, respectable human beings — but for some reason when I appear more feminine of center it seems to invite a certain type of somewhat invasive attention that I don’t ordinarily experience.

I usually appear masculine, if not just downright surly and I’m used to being respected. That’s a sentence I just had to type. I’m used to being respected for appearing more like a dude. That’s the unfortunate rub of it and the experience of being treated in any other way is just a sobering feeling. I’d also like to make a point that other than the wig, no, nothing was different from my usual appearance or carriage, yet as soon as I popped it on and tied it out of my face (I’m still not used to hair in my eyes) it was like turning into a different person in society’s eyes. I was a glowing beacon, apparently saying “Come bother me! And by all means, interrupt whatever I’m doing!”

What’s most odd about the experience was that a lot men seemed to feel entitled to my time, appearance and even my groceries. I didn’t detail everything that happened in the days since I’ve had the wig, but there were plenty of times where men would go out of their way to demand something of me — hell, even just being told to “smile”? Really? Should I have curtsied when our conversation was at an end and thanked him for his polite instruction on the way I held my face?

We keep teaching boys it’s okay to behave this way. “Boys will be boys” is not a motto that belongs in any society. At best, it’s disrespectful to others and at worst, it’s a poisonous concept that creates dangerous situations and a lack of boundaries.

All in all, it was an eye-opening few days. Sorry for those of you disappointed in the lack of punchline in this comic, but once we sat down and compiled some events that fit the theme, it just didn’t strike us as that funny either.

ChaosLife: Wig Worry

Of all the reactions I expected to get from wearing my new wig, I never anticipated the level of hostility I would face from passing many women in public. At the first couple of dirty glares, I just brushed it off as odd, but once I started noticing less-than-friendly looks from more than half of the women I passed, I had to remark about it to K. Surprisingly (to me), she didn’t seem shocked and instead shrugged it off, “that’s just how it is. Welcome to my day.”

I can’t deny it: women can be freaking terrifying to (those they perceive as) other women. Maybe be nicer to each other, everyone, okay?

(Read more in the blog on our site.)

aburningrose:

They perceive you as a threat. Whatever you do, don’t move. Their vision is based on movement. But seriously, that’s freakin’ nuts. And also kinda scary.

Ok….. SOME women can react to this. Men can too though. Everyone can to anyone they think is attractive. it’s not just a woman thing. Feminine  beauty is a double edged sword. People think you owe them something for your looks and others can get upset because they don’t think of themselves as “attractive” as you. Honestly though, its not like… an everyday thing… and i dunno why but this comic kinda made me a little upset. Just a little I think mainly because you make it seem as though women are outwardly hostile towards all women all the time. Though I know you said CAN which is totally true, sometimes people are dicks for no reason, but… I dunno. Maybe I’m just being too sensitive. Or I don’t get perceived as a threat to others (which is true. I’m not really traditionally attractive by any means and usually people forget I’m a lady until they hear me or remember my boobs). Sorry… rambling. 

It seems to have rubbed a few people the wrong way, so you’re not the only one. In the comments section of our site, there are literally women saying I look “competitive” or “bitchy” when in my mind I am just looking neutral.

Despite lots of comment speculation, I don’t personally offer any explanation as to why this particular thing happened. I just know how people look at me most days and then noticed the huge difference in shady looks once I popped on the wig for an outing. My wife noticed it. My grandma noticed it. My friends noticed it. So it wasn’t “projection” of any sort, it was just right there in our faces and I made a comic about it, because I’m honestly puzzled.

Others have offered that it could have been: jealousy, gender policing (since I look more masculine), looks of insecurity instead of hostility and several YouTube videos explaining the phenomenon that I’m not even going to click on.

Maybe we live in a particularly appearance-hostile neighborhood or I was near a more shallow demographic of ladies at the time, who knows. By all means, I would never suggest that “ALL WOMEN” do/experience/say this (or anything else), let alone attempt an explanation. I’m sorry if the comic comes across in any way like that. As always, we were just making a literal account of an experience that happened and made me very confused and upset.

I felt so angry at the UCSB massacre (an article about this incident and a script of his video’s speech) and the sexism we’re blind to everyday so I drew about my opinions on sexism to channel my rage.

I’m very happy the #YesAllWomen tag is going strong on U.S. Twitter right now. :D

See this… this is how it’s done.

No “you don’t look chunky, you look beautiful.”
No “you don’t look chunky” at all.

Just complete acceptance. Yeah, you look how you do, and how you look is beautiful. Mama gets it.

lmao you know it interesting, people poke so much fun at this family but they have way better values and approach things so much better than many

grand-illusions:
The Retinex Theory was devised by Edwin Land in 1977. It is sometimes also known as the Land Effect.

Colour constancy is the well known tendency for an object to always appear to have the same colour, no matter what the viewing conditions are. In other words a bright red post box appears red by daylight, by moonlight, and even under sodium street lights.

According to Land, we decide the colour of something by comparing its ability to reflect short, medium and long wavelengths with that of adjoining objects. Land considered that the eye and the brain (the retina and cortex) form a single optical system, which he called the retinex.

Have a look at the picture above. What colours do you see? Red, range, green, yellow, brown maybe? In fact this is a demonstration of the Land Effect, since you are looking at a monochrome red image, with a black and white overlay. The only 'real ' colour here is red. However our brain tends to 'see' other colours being present. The illusion works best under slightly yellow light, in other words direct sunlight is not the best way to view this illusion.
