"‘Men get raped and molested,’ should be a whole sentence. If you have to tack on the word ‘too,’ then you’re using the experience of male victims to silence females instead of giving them their own space." -

(via goldenphoenixgirl)

Not sure if I’ve reblogged this before but it always bears repeating.

(via thebicker)

Why is too silencing? Too means “also”, it’s additive. It adds, but takes nothing away from the previous statement. If you think that using the word too somehow takes away from talking about women, then you need to figure that out - the language is fine. Why does it need it’s own space? People get raped and abused - full stop. How does talking about all the people who are raped and abused in the same space (since they are, you know, the same) “take away” from women? It doesn’t.

As someone who wants to study the human consciousness I found this very interesting.

Scott Routley was a “vegetable”. A car accident seriously injured both sides of his brain, and for 12 years, he was completely unresponsive.

Unable to speak or track people with his eyes, it seemed that Routley was unaware of his surroundings, and doctors assumed he was lost in limbo. They were wrong.

In 2012, Professor Adrian Owen decided to run tests on comatose patients like Scott Routley. Curious if some “vegetables” were actually conscious, Owen put Routley in an fMRI and told him to imagine walking through his home. Suddenly, the brain scan showed activity. Routley not only heard Owen, he was responding.

Next, the two worked out a code. Owen asked a series of “yes or no” questions, and if the answer was “yes,” Routley thought about walking around his house. If the answer was “no,” Routley thought about playing tennis.

These different actions showed activity different parts of the brain. Owen started off with easy questions like, “Is the sky blue?” However, they changed medical science when Owen asked, “Are you in pain?” and Routley answered, “No.” It was the first time a comatose patient with serious brain damage had let doctors know about his condition.

While Scott Routley is still trapped in his body, he finally has a way to reach out to the people around him. This finding has huge implications.

HOLY STEAMING SHITFUCKS

WHY IS EVERYONE NOT LOSING THEIR SHIT ABOUT THIS

What a fucking nightmare, just kill me.

I know a girl who was hit by a drunk driver and in that state for a year. When she woke up the first thing she did was tell off the doctor who tried to convince her mom to pull the plug. She heard *everything* while being called brain dead.

OH MY FUCK

this is awful, omg

can I ask someone who knows more about the study of neurology, how do you determine if someone is brain dead? Don’t they have to actually do brain scans and testing before they determine that…?

“Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”Shut up already.

The ALS Association has a 4-star rating from Charity Watchdog. 
And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection. 

As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…

A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier.  Her dad has ALS.  The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.
This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp.  And they did.  She posted pics.
So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.

So, I watched Lucy, a movie that received some hate here on Tumblr because of reasons I don't remember, annnnd... it's actually really damn good. I'm even impressed right now. It's not about a woman being badass or anything like that, but feminists are going to take it as their new propaganda machine.

I personally refuse to ever watch it because the plot is based on that “hur humans only use 10% of their brain dur” thing.

it could be the best movie ever apart from that and i just refuse to ever watch it.

But humans do only use 10% of their brain at any given time and the capabilities of our brains it’s alot

No. We do not actually. That’s a myth. X

Writer of the book “Energies of Man” William James and many other scientists have argued that yes it’s a myth but it is a fact that we are not using our brains to its full capacity.

“We are making use of only a small part of our possible mental and physical resources.” - Quote by William James.

And the move is pretty kickass even if they should have done a little more homework.

I’m not sure if you clicked the link to the source I provided on that but it talks about what you just mentioned. And William James was more of a philosopher and a psychologist than anything… As far as I know he wasn’t a Neuroscientist. Also, that book was written in 1908 before reaching the medical advances we have today to study the brain and how it works.

I thought feminists hated this movie just based on the trailer? I know I didn’t at all think it looked good. You think they’ll like it now?

Brain imaging scans clearly show that almost all regions of the brain are active during even fairly routine tasks such as talking, walking, and listening to music. 

Brain mapping research has yet to find any region of the brain that does not serve a function. “Numerous types of brain imaging studies show that no area of the brain is completely silent or inactive,” wrote Dr. Rachel C. Vreeman and Dr. Aaron E. Carroll in a study of medical myths. 

You can even infer this from common knowledge - you see brain scans in media sometimes and they certainly look completely active. You hear about this, that and the other area of the brain and all their functions - and it certainly seems to cover the whole brain. I’m not sure why people continue to believe the 10% thing. Even if we happen to not be using absolutely all of our brain, it’s definitely a hell of a lot more than 10%.

10 year old Yemeni girl smiling after she was granted a divorce from her husband- a 30 year old man
Here’s what I found after looking into it. 
Nujood Ali was nine when her parents arranged a marriage to Faez Ali Thamer, a man in his thirties. Regularly beaten by her in-laws and raped by her husband, Ali escaped on April 2, 2008, two months after the wedding. 
On the advice of her father’s second wife, she went directly to court to seek a divorce. After waiting for half a day, she was noticed by a judge, Mohammed al-għadha who gave her refuge. He had both her father and husband taken into custody.
Indeed, publicity surrounding Ali’s case is said to have inspired efforts to annul other child marriages, including that of an 8 year old Saudi girl who was allowed to divorce a middle-aged man in 2009.
But in 2013 Ali reported to the media that her father had forced her out of their home and is withholding her money granted by publishers. Her father has also arranged a marriage for her younger sister, Haifa.
Also this girl has her own book

I just want some feminists to focus more on this than on defending Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian.

Realistically, what can they do? Most of the feminists that you likely encounter are based in USA, Canada, maybe UK. What can they do to affect attitudes and policies in a place like Yemen?

They can raise awareness. Tumblr is a global site where you can donate to people in many countries to aid them. A very good thing they can do, for one, is set up donations for this kid or other kids. They can put efforts to start up shelters for such incidents. There’s a lot of things western feminists can do. This post only has almost 9k posts, whereas a post about male tears has 36K.

someone made a really good point in the commentary of a post once which basically boiled down to the fact that james and lily’s patronuses are complements of each other (stag / doe) as opposed to snape and lily’s (doe / doe) which just goes to show how love and obsession are not the same thing at all thank u for ur time

whoa.

As much as I agree that Snape’s feelings for Lily were messed up, this still pisses me the fuck off. It’s way too close to the idea that same-sex love is narcissistic and obsessive as opposed to heterosexual love which is meaningful and pure and real.

I don’t think that was point at all. The idea is that Snape was so obsessed that his patronus is exactly like Lily’s. Not in the fact that it was a female-sexed animal, but just that it was exactly the same. If Lily’s patronus would have been a sexless amoeba, Snape’s patronus would have been the same. Although yes, it can smack of ‘sanctity of the heterosexual relationship!!’
