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.

REALLY just wanna take this chance to remind the people who follow me to not kill/trap opossums if they’re in your yard, and do not call animal control! Seriously.

  1. Opossums are literally 100% BIOLOGICALLY INCAPABLE of carrying rabies. Their body temperature is too cool to incubate it properly.
  2. Opossums are actually quite gentle and NOCTURNAL, so if they’re roaming, they’ve probably gotten lost, been injured, and are looking for a place to hide.
  3. Young opossums tend to try to climb into garbage cans when they’re starving. This is because THEY ARE LITERALLY STARVING. Don’t fucking shoot them or hit them with things because you wanna be some fucking macho top-of-the-food-chain cocksucker.
  4. Mama possums are amazing mothers and if you encounter an “aggressive” opossum, it’s probably because she’s got babies hanging off her nipple and she’s freaking out. They’re clumsy. Sometimes they don’t hear you coming and  you catch each other off guard.
  5. Wanna lure an opossum off of your property? You can set up a box with some greens and cat kibble in it, hide it well, and lure them out that way. They’re actually quite harmless and keep other predators away. they eat lotsa gross stuff.
  6. Opossum mamas who get hit by cars often still have their helpless babies attached to them. Possums get a bad rep and people say they are “the dumbest animal”, but they are incredible creatures who have been around since the days of fucking dinosaurs so treat them well, okay?

Aww!!!

More important facts about opossums:

1. Opossums, like cats, are meticulous groomers, resulting in them being one of the top predators for ticks in the wild. This make them an important deterrent in the spread of lyme disease.

2. The act of “playing dead” is not a conscious decision on the part of the opossum, but a defense mechanism that automatically activates when the animal is panicked. It might seem funny to you to see an opossum flop over, but you’re literally scaring them into fainting when you startle them, and potentially leaving them vulnerable to carrion eaters, so DON’T DO IT.

3. Opossums are not naturally aggressive, and will usually only bite as an absolute last resort if they feel cornered. They will hiss and drool and try to seem as intimidating as possible, but this is just an act, as opossums are terrible at physically defending themselves. Your dog is not in danger of being hurt by the “mean ol’ possum” because that fight is ALWAYS in the dog’s favor.

4. If you have to pick up an adult opossum, please don’t do it by the tail. It’s fine for babies and juveniles to hang from them, but as they get older, their bodies become too heavy and it puts a lot of strain on their muscles to be carried by the tail. You wouldn’t pick up a cat by their tail, so don’t pick up a possum that way either.

look at rnortal’s rules for anyone unfortunate enough to date her holy shit

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.

"True gender equality is actually perceived as inequality. A group that is made up of 50% women is perceived as being mostly women. A situation that is perfectly equal between men and women is perceived as being biased in favor of women.
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."

Lucy, When Worlds Collide: Fandom and Male Privilege.  (via subconciousevolution)

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.
