A Widdershins Girl: To the girls who say they want a nice guy.

Shut the fuck up. All us nice guys stuck in fucking friendzone know what you really want is some asshole to complain about to us. GTFO. We’re tired of it.

You sound super nice. I don’t know why no one wants to date you.

What a mystery.

I’ve had a bad day ok. I’ve pretty much given this girl, who I’m really close with, my heart and she shoots me down and starts telling me about all the guy problems. It just really fucking hurts and I felt here would be a better place to vent then some of my other options.

You know what? I know what it feels like to rejected. It fucking sucks and a lot of people are able to relate to what you’re feeling. You know what else I know? I know what it feels like to build a friendship with a guy. A guy that was nice and treated me like a human being instead of walking vagina he wants to fuck. I know what it’s like to become friends with a guy like this and slowly start to trust him. Slowly we build a really meaningful relationship and I let my guard down and I start to show him vulnerable parts of myself. I start to share my fears and weaknesses with him. I start relying on this important person in my life for support when I find out that I’m being dicked around by another guy who only sees me as a walking vagina he wants to fuck. And then this guy that I really care about tells me that he has feelings for me and when I tell him that  I don’t feel the same way, he turns around and calls me a bitch. He says I friendzoned him and he goes on some social networking site and starts blasting me and all of his friends are like “wow what a bitch. She doesn’t know what she’s missing” and he gets to pity himself and feel validated. I, on the other hand, am left with the realization that my friendship, that this closeness we shared didn’t mean jack shit. That this guy I trusted didn’t care enough about me as a person to not turn on me the second he found out I wouldn’t date/have sex with him. Suddenly, I’m feeling this whole time, everything I thought we had, was only as important to him as his chances to get in my pants. And let me tell you, that hurts way more than rejection. 

Here’s the thing, buddy. You’re not just one guy who’s having a bad day because you had your heart broken. Browse the friend zone tag. You’re just one of the many guys that post things like  pictures that say “when a girl starts telling you about her problems, she’s not complaining. It means she trust you” and the caption says “Aaaannnd you’ve been friendzoned”  like having a platonic, meaningful relationship with a woman is just THE WORST FUCKING THING EVER. Do you know how shitty it feels to know that your friendship and your trust is so fucking undesirable that there’s a goddamn meme about it? Do you know how shitty it feels to know that your guy friends only care you as long as they can hold on to the possibility of one day fucking you? Do you know how infuriating it is to know that that guy, that asshole who made you think he cared about you as a person, gets to flame you for daring to not be attracted to him? Because if you don’t know what that feels like, let me tell you that you’re not the one who got the shit end of the deal.

Will this “men are people, women are objects” mindset never die out?  Even the nicest (to the point where he’s pretty much a doormat) friend of mine can’t wrap his mind around this, with extensive explanation.  “You *owe* me something, for being nice to you,” even if it’s less explicit than the average d-bag.

In Regard to the State of My Gender: An Incomplete List of Noteable People I've Delivered Pizzas To

tybaar:

It’s coming up on a year now since I got my current job as a pizza delivery girl, and I thought this would be a good time to delve into the little ever-expanding “WTFPIZZA” note I keep on my cell that helps me remember some of my more, uh - interesting deliveries.

So without further ado and in no…

People are…something else.

TW: Violence against women

slavicinferno:

“I heard police or ambulancemen, standing in our house, say, “She must have provoked him,” or, “Mrs Stewart, it takes two to make a fight.” They had no idea. The truth is my mother did nothing to deserve the violence she endured. She did not provoke my father, and even if she had, violence is an unacceptable way of dealing with conflict. Violence is a choice a man makes and he alone is responsible for it.”

-Patrick Stewart

Okay, this man has just became even more AWESOME in my eyes.

8 month old baby hearing his mother’s voice for the first time with cochlear implant

This is the most beautiful thing ever.

thank you science

THE BINKY JUST…….

DROPPED

HE WAS JUST MINDING HIS BUSINESS WITH THAT BINKY
AND THEN HE HEARD IT, AND HE STARTED SCRAMBLING TO RECOGNIZE IT
AND WHEN HE DID, OH GOD THE WAY THE BINKY JUST DROPPED
LOOK AT HIM HE’S SO HAPPY UGH

The fourth gif is the most beautiful… he’s looking at his mama, just shocked and then the smile forms on his face, and I’m crying.

This is so freaking adorable. :)

This is actually really not OK.

To quote the lovely Gabi, who is herself a deaf person.

I’m so so sick of seeing this on my dash. 
I don’t care if this makes me sound like a bad person. 
This baby was not broken and did not need to be fixed. 
I realize that it is easier for the parents and society if the baby is made to hear. 
But he was perfectly fine deaf. 
A cochlear implant should not be a parents decisions. 
It should be the child’s.  

I am of mixed feelings here.  By the time the child is old enough to say whether they want a cochlear implant or not, they’ll have missed the age it’s easiest for children to learn language.  Presumably, the parents here aren’t Deaf, and likely no relatives are, so there’s no telling how much of a chance the child would have to be exposed to Deaf culture, or if he’d be raised thinking he’s a burden and taught speechreading rather than ASL.  The unfortunate thing is, you can’t *make* anyone respect - hell, even tolerate, sometimes - their child the way they are - if that were the case, Autism Speaks would look an awful lot different.  (Not to mention the murder stats for disabled kids.)

I don’t think children should be getting CIs without their parents knowing that they’re not the only option, though - when someone learns their child can’t hear, the consultation with the doctor for a CI shouldn’t be the end of things.  Before any decision is made, they should have to have a meeting with a Deaf person to share the other side of the story, let them know what their child’s life will be like without it, and that there’s a community they’ll fit into.  A lot of people just don’t *know* this, and aren’t necessarily going to be told that by doctors.

This goes for an autism diagnosis, too.  Parents should meet adult autistics - oh, wait, that would require acknowledging that such things *exist*…

That said, I have a deaf-blind acquaintance with a CI, and her life’s far easier with it - I’m not sure how she’d manage to play hockey without being able to see *or* hear the puck.

Dog-lovers base their whole case on these commonplace, servile, and plebeian qualities, and amusingly judge the intelligence of a pet by its degree of conformity to their own wishes. Catlovers escape this delusion, repudiate the idea that cringing subservience and sidling companionship to man are supreme merits, and stand free to worship aristocratic independence, self-respect, and individual personality joined to extreme grace and beauty as typified by the cool, lithe, cynical, and unconquered lord of the housetops.

Management seems to judge intelligence the same way, and reward it accordingly.  Thus, the teeming mass of mindless incompetence at the top of the shitheap.

For women, heart attacks look different.

distractedbyshinyobjects:

Follow me down the rabbit hole for a second:

I’ve long wondered if this - that women don’t recognize the symptoms of a heart attack in themselves, and consequently don’t get the fast care that is vital for heart attack survival - is the reason heart disease is the #1 killer in women. Women statistically take better care of themselves health-wise, than men do. Women see doctors more frequently and are more likely to follow those doctors’ recommendations closely. Why would both men and women have the same most common cause of death?

Heart attack symptoms in men are well known. We all know what it means when a guy on TV clutches his chest or left arm and falls over. This scene is often followed by a rush to the emergency room in an ambulance, and a shirtless guy being shocked back to sinus rhythm with the electric paddles. “CLEAR!” Right? Everyone knows that’s what a heart attack looks like. Because of TV.

Except you can’t show a topless woman on TV - and you can’t defibrillate a woman in a bra. So victims of heart attacks on TV are *always* male. Did you know that a woman having a heart attack is more likely to have back or jaw pain than chest or left arm pain? I didn’t - because I’ve never seen a woman having a heart attack. I’ve been trained in CPR and Advanced First Aid by the Red Cross over 15 times in my life, the videos and booklets always have a guy and say the same thing about clutching his chest and/or bicep.

And people laugh when I tell them women are still invisible in this world.

UPDATE: So, it’s been brought to my attention that the language/information in both the original article and my commentary is not trans* friendly, and for my part of that, I sincerely apologize.

I’m not a doctor and I don’t know how a heart attack would present itself in a M2F or F2M on hormone therapy, or with any other medical differences that affect this kind of thing. I also don’t know if there’s been enough research for the medical community at large to know either - cursory googling hasn’t given me any satisfactory info. If this affects you, I’d recommend asking your trusted physician. Talk about being invisible.

THIS is why vegans frustrate me really deeply. Wearing a leather jacket is the same to those reblogging this picture uncritically as the means of establishing and maintaining class structures among human beings that depend on more-than/less-than relationships based on wholly superficial distinctions and dependent upon violence to maintain.

This person’s lack of any sense of visual hierarchy also really bothers me. I mean seriously, OMGWTF is up with the colors and random highlight blocks???

The blue and purple should be switched, or possibly moved to the bottom to create a proper rainbow, but I think that was the effect they were going for…
…and I reblogged this thinking the “speciesism” meant they were otherkin-friendly.

A Widdershins Girl: your reminder that not only is ex-trans therapy still legal

ikilledcaptainclown:

mattachinereview:

but that the APA hired Zucker, ex-trans therapy’s premiere practitioner, to head the committee on transness for the DSM V, which just came out

there is a waiting list for cis adults to put their children into Zucker’s “care”

this “care” involves punishing them when they do “gender inappropriate” things and rewarding them when they do “gender appropriate” things

there is a waiting list, you heard me kids, literally a waiting list for medical abuse

and if you don’t think that makes Zucker dubiously credible, guess who he’s totally coauthored stuff with before? J Michael Bailey, notorious transmisogynist and also the fucksaw guy

I feel comfortable calling Bailey “the fucksaw guy” because he’s the first result when I google “fucksaw,” which is a feat considering that this is the internet after all—google it if you’d like an explanation, but be forewarned, it’s exactly as ludicrous as it sounds

the evidence for cis people not having their shit together and being generally incompetent and rapacious and a bit evil—

the evidence is becoming compelling

ohhhhh how positively wonderful. -_-/le sarcasm

One would think in Canada’s largest city, trans* services would be easy to access, compared to the rest of the country.  Not with Zucker trying to run the show from CAMH, and a wait list quoted to me in *years* by the other clinic…
