I think I’ve said this exact thing before but it’s so freaking weird that we put breasts on so many alien creatures and anthropomorphic animals because the two prominent boobs are something totally unique to humans.
That’s like if we were chicken people and gave all our fictional beings cock’s combs. Even robots and cartoon bugs and shit.
Or maybe if we were turtle people and our version of Star Trek assumed a vast majority of alien races would have turtle shells cause that’s just so normal to us and marketing executives assume nobody will buy a game or watch a movie where the characters don’t have turtle shells.
Walrus pop culture where everything has tusks.
Termite people giving all their female characters huge colossal pulsating abdomens even if they’re cats or fish or humans.
Proboscis monkey pop culture where anything designated “male” has a big dangly fat nose to make it sexier.
thts rules from my boyfriend not rules to my boyfriend js
alright sorry but these rules are definitely abusive
How is it abusive when she 100% consents too and agrees with them
Someone’s got trust issues.
I have a huge, massive problem with any relationship where the power is entirely in someone else’s hands, and NO, the “power” to be a sexual object for someone else isn’t a thing. No one said it’s not consensual. But it’s not healthy, and it presents a horrifying opportunity for abuse. People who are abusive don’t immediately gun it on treating you like shit; they have to get the power from you first. Relationships like this put all of the power entirely in the dom’s hands; from always capitalizing Dom, He, Him, His, and the dom’s Name, to always making the submissive partner’s lowercase, because they don’t get to a proper noun, they are an object, to this:
"A Daddy Dom will treat His babygirl as His most prized possession, one that He guards with His life. A Daddy naturally teaches His girl all that He knows, all that He wishes her to be. A babygirl longs to learn and if allowed to question that which she doesn’t know or understand, enabling a Daddy to guide her, fulfilling His need as well.”
It doesn’t have to be literally or figuratively incestuous for that to be genuinely horrifying, especially because someone in that situation does not have power. “If you fail to tell me you’re hurt or scared, you’ll be punished. If you fail to tell me anything you think, you’ll be punished. If you see something upsetting and get upset, I’ll punish you, and the worse you feel the harder I’ll hurt you because your feelings aren’t okay.” That’s not healthy, even for “someone’s own good.”
The girl in question has said she consents, that she likes it, that she doesn’t want any power at all, that she wants to be owned and controlled and that she has to be to keep her safe from being, well, herself, I guess?
Ask any therapist if a relationship like this does jack shit to fix it; at best, a relationship like that is going to provide limited escapism with feelings of powerlessness and inferiority that compound an inherently abuse-oriented situation. Yeah, even if the submissive and dom don’t actually intend any abuse. You don’t have to go into a situation with abusive intent to end up doing just that.
That’s not cute or romantic. Being treated like a stupid, sexualized baby who doesn’t know anything and isn’t allowed to speak to anyone without permission, to get attention from anyone, to be seen by anyone, to have bodily functions deemed unsexy, to dress like they want, to eat or rest if they want, that’s not okay. Not even if it’s wrapped up in “princess” and “cutie” and sterilized with words like “intimate relations” instead of “fuck.”
I’m not saying her boyfriend is actually abusive. I don’t know if he is. She’s said he’s a very kind person who loves her and that she enjoys her relationship, and that’s GREAT. But that doesn’t make that category of relationship, or his rules for her, any less genuinely upsetting.
unless your teachers are abusive assholes there is no fucking reason to disrespect them
they are literally trying their hardest to get you an education
teachers have every right to complain about rude students or the amount of papers they have to grade because their salary is low as shit
oh wow, your math teacher yelled at you because you were ignoring the lesson and talking to your friend
i wonder why
jesus christ teachers have it hard enough dont be an asshole
And if you don’t believe me, you’ve never been a married woman who kept her family name. I have had students hold that up as proof of my “sexism.”
My own brother told me that he could never marry a woman who kept her name because “everyone would know who ruled that relationship.” Perfect equality – my husband keeps his name and I keep mine – is held as a statement of superiority on my part."
Also in a mixed-gender group, when women talk 25% of the time or less, it’s seen as being equally balanced. If women talk between 25% and 50% of the time, they are seen as “dominating the conversation.” One of the most mind-bending statistics I ever read in college.
