‘got herself pregnant’ is the dumbest phrase in the world like forreal if it was possible to get pregnant by ourselves we’d have eaten all the men long ago
it actually is possible to get pregnant (without the sperm of a man whatsoever) using bone marrow from another woman! a child conceived this way can only be female so actually, men are entirely useless. fun fact
let’s begin the feast
Jack is hardcore as fuck
scare me like one of your french girls
For money money, the most interesting thing about this confrontation is how completely it inverts the final scenes of a typical Disney film. In most cases, the hero is physically and/or supernaturally outmatched, and triumphs through determination and ingenuity; here, the villain spends the the whole fight running scared, while the protagonist casually no-sells everything that’s thrown at him. And there’s no ironic Disney Death keeping the protagonist’s hands clean, either. Jack just straight-up murders Oogie with malice aforethought while Oogie is running away - and by having Santa Claus himself strike the final blow, the film legitimises Jack’s killing of Oogie as the morally correct course of action.
You don’t fuck around with the motherfucking pumpkin king
Someone I don’t follow just messaged me asking why I dislike Gwyneth Paltrow.
Is water wet?
Beige. That’s why. The answer is beige.
"Another reason we thought it was men all along… ‘[M]ale archaeologists were doing the work," Snow said, and it’s possible that “had something to do with it.’”
This is exciting both in its own right, and as an example of how science can be improved by elimination of patriarchal values that attribute works to one gender or another based on assumption, rather than evidence.
In other words, it is exciting to see that so many early artists were women, and equally exciting to see scientists breaking through conditioned patriarchal thinking in order to reach better conclusions.
The erasure of women’s roles in human history is tantamount to violence. To this day, men - prominent men - feel totally comfortable saying women just aren’t good artists or writers. Admitting women are good at something - as good as men! maybe better! - means admitting that men have had an undeserved level of access to success in that field.
Last week, a few news sources reported on a recent study that suggests women are generally better investors than men. I saw it posted on Facebook, and because I’m a masochist, I read the comments. To paraphrase the majority of comments left by men: “But ladies be shoppin! LOLLLL” Even when we’re proven, statistically, to be better at something, men feel the need to tear us down. (You can’t really prove with math that women artists are just as good as men, but with something that’s entirely numbers-based like investing, it’s a little easier.) And in the case of the story above, it’s just assumed that something culturally and historically significant was done by men. A fist bump across time and space to the cave ladies making art before it was cool.
Possibly had something to do with it? No, definitely had something to do with it.
