I have a friend whose past three girlfriends have been “crazy.” After the last one I asked him if he could think of a common element between the relationships.

There has only been five female characters comfirmed playable compared to fifteen male characters.

I’m amazed at those exact numbers because 33% is the point where men will start thinking there’s a majority of women in a group.

I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again - 

Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone. 

Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.

If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time. 

And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office. 

Amazing

I’ve seen this a few times and now I’ve seen it just enough to warrant reblogging it instead of giving a silent nod of approval and letting it pass by.

7 Things Women Writers are sick of hearing.

See more here.

"Why is your lead always a girl?"

"Who’s her love interest, then?"

"What kind of young adult do you write?" (I don’t write YA…)

"Oh, you do fantasy? Like Twilight?"

"Women just can’t write men. I mean, men can kind of do both just because it’s been done so much, but women always write men too girly."

"Are you going to hide your name like JK Rowling so you can get published?"

AND THE WORST ONE: Upon hearing my writing group is predominantly women… “Oh, I don’t think that’s for me. I do serious writing.”

I always hate the subtle slam on YA and romance in these things. I write YA and I love romance, but I will still kick your ass.

Amie and I get a lot of “This is pretty good for girl sci-fi.” As if “girl sci-fi” is its own thing, and as if it’s somehow less enjoyable than whatever “boy sci-fi” is. *eyeroll*

Remember that when Marissa Alexander fired her warning shot to save her own life, she caused no injuries. Now she’s facing the very real possibility of spending the rest of her life in prison for that act of self-defense,” said advocate Sumayya Fire in the statement. “That should send a chill down the back of every person in this country who believes that women who are attacked have the right to defend themselves.

Shailene Woodley won’t let the media turn her against J Law

The media loves a catfight. 

Now that the highly anticipated film adaptation of Divergent — a Hunger Games-esque dystopian tale — is officially in theaters, comparisons between its star Shailene Woodley and Jennifer Lawrence are rolling in. According to Joanna Robinson of Vanity Fair’s “The Next Jennifer Lawrence?,” “If Woodley’s other adaptation of a popular Y.A. book, The Fault in Our Stars, doesn’t do well then J. Law can breath a sigh of relief that her supremacy is safe. For now.”

Apparently being an “It Girl” is just like being the Lord of the Rings: There can only be one.

Again and again, the media pits successful women against each other, making one’s rise contingent on another’s fall. And this is bullshit. Even when recently goaded to dish about her supposed rival, Woodley wouldn’t bite

Breast cancer is a made of suck disease that attacks one of my very favourite organs of ladies.
— 

Renowned Feminist John Green

[Reblogged by Hank on 3/10/2014 in a Twenty Funniest and Most Adorable John Green Quotes post?????]

Haven’t we reached a pretty unanimous consensus that you shouldn’t sexualize breasts when talking about breast cancer?

Cause you know, breast cancer is actually not about your boner John?

Ughhhh what’s it gonna take for men to understand WOMEN’S ENTIRE EXISTENCE DOES NOT REVOLVE ABOUT YOUR BONER?

(via nerdfighterfighter)

Just the organs. Not the actual people who have to deal with it. We just care about the breasts, not the people attached to them. Good job. A+ way to make this about him. I didn’t think it could be done.His fiction skills are truly beyond mine.

(via macgyvergirl)

Exactly. EXACTLY.

The fact that this was considered one of his “most adorable” quotes is like… what.

(via nerdfighterfighter)

Breasts aren’t organs, they’re glands.

(via antiporn-activist)

I saw some people crying the age old, “But this quote was taken out of context!” Which… this doesn’t even need context, but I watched the video anyway just to hear it “in context”. Now I can officially say the context doesn’t matter. It’s just like his quote about nerd girls as “resources”. UGGGGGGH.

Teachers are often unaware of the gender distribution of talk in their classrooms. They usually consider that they give equal amounts of attention to girls and boys, and it is only when they make a tape recording that they realize that boys are dominating the interactions.

Dale Spender, an Australian feminist who has been a strong advocate of female rights in this area, noted that teachers who tried to restore the balance by deliberately ‘favouring’ the girls were astounded to find that despite their efforts they continued to devote more time to the boys in their classrooms. Another study reported that a male science teacher who managed to create an atmosphere in which girls and boys contributed more equally to discussion felt that he was devoting 90 per cent of his attention to the girls. And so did his male pupils. They complained vociferously that the girls were getting too much talking time.

In other public contexts, too, such as seminars and debates, when women and men are deliberately given an equal amount of the highly valued talking time, there is often a perception that they are getting more than their fair share. Dale Spender explains this as follows:

The talkativeness of women has been gauged in comparison not with men but with silence. Women have not been judged on the grounds of whether they talk more than men, but of whether they talk more than silent women.

In other words, if women talk at all, this may be perceived as ‘too much’ by men who expect them to provide a silent, decorative background in many social contexts. This may sound outrageous, but think about how you react when precocious children dominate the talk at an adult party. As women begin to make inroads into formerly ‘male’ domains such as business and professional contexts, we should not be surprised to find that their contributions are not always perceived positively or even accurately.

As a teacher, I give girls what I hope is a lot of attention.  I don’t know if I give girls their fair share, but I aspire to, especially after noticing that boys are willing to use their greater share of teachers’ attention to get girls who they feel aren’t being quiet and docile enough punished.  I have therefore acquired a reputation for “caring more about the girls.”  This has had two marked results: Some straight boys have gotten more hostile toward me, and most girls have gotten more confident around me.  This makes me think I’m doing something right.

Longer thoughts on how this phenomenon relates to sexual harassment in classrooms, if you’re interested: The girls figured out I won’t report them if they hit boys who are sexually harassing them, I’ll only report the boys.  This led to an increase in how often girls got the last word and boys got smacked in my classes, and, also, to a DECREASE IN HOW OFTEN GIRLS GOT SEXUALLY HARASSED.  The sexual harassers seem to have been depending on the sort of “equal blame” and “retaliation is never warranted” and “don’t hurt others’ feelings” perspectives so many schools try to instill in kids; the sexual harassers were usually the ones bringing me into the situation by saying, “Miss, she hit me!  You should write her up!”  Once they figured out I was only ever going to respond, “If you don’t treat girls like that, they won’t hit you,” the girls got more confident and the sexual harassers largely shut the fuck up.

In schools, fighting against sexual harassment is often punished exactly the same as, or more severely than, sexual harassment — a lot of discipline codes make no distinction between violence and violence in self-defence, and violence is ALWAYS the highest level of disciplinary infraction, whereas verbal sexual harassment rarely is.  Sexual harassers, at least in the schools I’ve been in, rely heavily on GETTING GIRLS IN TROUBLE WITH HIGHER AUTHORITIES as a strategy of harassment — creating an external punishment that penalises girls for and therefore discourages girls from fighting back.  Sexual harassers are willing to use their greater share of floorspace to ask to get girls who won’t date them punished.  By and large, teachers do punish those girls when they swear or hit.  Schools condition girls to ignore sexual harassment by punishing them when they speak up or fight back instead.

Once the sexual harassers in my classes understood that girls wouldn’t be punished for rejecting them, they backed off around me.  And there started to be a flip in what conversations I get called into — girls are telling me when boys are being nasty (too loud and dominant), instead of boys telling me when girls are being uncooperative (louder and more dominant than boys think they should be).

I need to learn how to draw a decent Batman pic.

So what you’re trying to say is that women people prefer well-drawn pictures of their favorite superheroes over really shitty indie comics about boobs?
Sounds right.

Are we supposed to feel sorry for the person whose humor comic featuring a disembodied pair of breasts on the cover is getting passed over?Incredible.

this feels like it should be a parody but it isnt and that’s hilarious
maybe try not being sexist unfunny douchelords next time

HEY, WE DO A HUMOR COMIC ABOUT [SOMETHING THAT LOOKS EXTREMELY SEXIST] HEY WHERE ARE YOU GOING

No, no way is this a serious complaint (I said to myself). No one’s that un-self aware. This has got to be a parody about gross “indie” comics skeeving up the con atmosphere, and the schadenfreude we’re totally intended to feel at their failure.
So I went to the OP’s tumblr to check context and.

This was just supposed to be a comic about how hard it can be for the unknowns to find their audience. Anything else you see is your own interpretation of the page.

They are serious. 
That is more hilarious than any punchline actually in the comic. I’m honestly crying with laughter right now.

"how hard it can be for the unknowns to find their audience"
Hey genuis, here’s a tip:  If you’re aiming for an audience that isn’t exclusively made up of fratty dudebros and actual breastfeeding infants, try putting more than a pair of tits on the cover of your comic, you sexist dipshit.
