Some interesting info: This is very reminiscent of the Baby X experiments, in which it was discovered that people reacted differently to a baby’s behavior depending on whether or not they believed the baby to be male or female.  People were asked to watch a video of a baby reacting to a startling image (a Jack-in-the-box popping up), and describe the baby’s emotional state.  When people believed the baby to be female, they described the baby as being scared and upset; when they thought the baby was male, they perceived the baby to be angry.  This was very telling, as it showed that literally identical behavior could be construed differently based on the perceived gender of the subject.

Now imagine a lifetime of gender specific socialization- male anger is par for the course while the same emotion in a woman is personal weakness. Ha oh sorry don’t have to imagine THAT’S REALITY 

Yes.

There was a post across my dash earlier about “If you’re cis, sit down and think about your gender identity and what it means to you” and there was someone in the comment who thought it was pointless for a cis person to think about why they are their gender and what that means because that’s the whole point of being cis but no. No. This is why it’s important to think about your gender and what it means, because if you’ve never thought about it you are not defining it for yourself.

Imagine the Guardians/Avengers trying to come up with a plan to stop Thanos

Peter:Any ideas Rocket?
Tony:We're taking advice from a talking raccoon on how to take down the big evil purple man?
Rocket:Yeah, you are, so shut it and listen up tin can. Alright, first thing, I'm gonna need his arm.
Bucky:My arm?
Groot:I am Groot.

In the heat of battle, photographer Horace Bristol captured one of the most unique and erotic photos of WWII.
Bristol photographed a young crewman of a US Navy “Dumbo” PBY rescue mission, manning his gun after having stripped naked and jumped into the water of Rabaul Harbor to rescue a badly burned Marine pilot. The Marine was shot down while bombing the Japanese-held fortress of Rabaul.
 “…we got a call to pick up an airman who was down in the Bay. The Japanese were shooting at him from the island, and when they saw us they started shooting at us. The man who was shot down was temporarily blinded, so one of our crew stripped off his clothes and jumped in to bring him aboard. He couldn’t have swum very well wearing his boots and clothes. As soon as we could, we took off. We weren’t waiting around for anybody to put on formal clothes. We were being shot at and wanted to get the hell out of there. The naked man got back into his position at his gun in the blister (turret) of the plane.”

you know how much pressure there is on girls to be good at every video game they play, because if they fuck up once there’s going to be a heck of a lot of people saying how girls suck and how they shouldn’t play video games
