A scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it

-Max Planck

I used to think there was no politics in science and boy I was dead wrong.

this only has 800 something notes and that is seriously fucking sad

SIGNAL BOOST THIS SHOULD HAVE MORE THAN A FEW FUCKING NOTES REBLOG UNTIL WE BREAK THE LIMIT

plz direct yrself to THIS post if you think that comics like this are necessary and that cisphobia is a pressing issue thank you

it’s not to do with whether or not cisphobia is a genuine problem it’s about not fucking bullying people

No one is perfectly safe here unless they happen to be a person who is practically every repressed minority possible who conforms to all of Tumblr’s ideals, and even then someone would find a problem with you. No matter where you go you won’t find a true safe haven. people will always find reasons to send people hate. opinions, lifestyle, physical looks…

Seriously, guys. Just because Majority groups seem to have it made doesn’t mean that they don’t face their own problems because of it. And you don’t support one group of people by putting down another group of people. If you do that then YOU are creating the problem.

Its OK to be *insert Gender identity*
Its OK to be *Insert Sexuality*
It’s OK to be *Insert skin color*
Its OK to be *Insert body type*
It’s OK to be from *Insert country*
It’s OK to be struggling with *Insert mental or physical problems*
It’s OK to be yourself

It is NOT ok to shame, harass, bully, etc. other people for being different than you or being something they have no control over.

Thank you!  This describes so much of the issue I see on Tumblr, and sometimes even in the LBGQT community.  I have friends of all varieties of gender, sexuality, race, and so forth.  I just happen to be a white, straight, cis, woman.  I respect people regardless of their choices and believe in equality for everyone.  And I will fight with those people who are different from me because everyone deserves happiness and respect.  

But for some reason, because I’m not *insert minority group here*, I see all kinds of flack.  And it hurts, because I’m being told my friendship and my support mean nothing.  

I’m not accusing anyone.  I’ve met so many nice people of all kinds and there are so few people who seem to have any issues.  But its that tiny majority that seem to be so active on tumblr.

Just puttin that out there.

if i had a dollar…

If I had a brick

sorry if I’m off topic but I’m so sick of people characterizing violent crime as “musta been mental illness” it throws us mentally ill people under the bus by perpetuating the stereotype that we’re dangerous

cant we just say there was something going on with that one guy?

ur totally right, many men don’t react violently when faced with rejection.
it was only this one guy.












And that’s why I will forever spite anyone who judges women for lying about having a boyfriend or being gay to avoid just plain out rejecting men.
Even that can get us violence, the girl talked about in the tweet actually HAD a boyfriend.

Can I just say that this actually makes me really scared to every reject guys over anything? And I really don’t want to feel that way.

Mentally sound people don’t do things like that. End of story. It’s not a “male” problem, it’s a “mental health” problem.

Yo, I have mental health problems and when a girl tells me no, I say okay. If I liked her a lot, I might go home and cry and moodily eat an ice cream bar or some other terrible-for-me sugar-laden food in front of anime reruns. And then I get over it. 
Yes, there are women who have done this to men, but on the whole the number disproportionately men doing it to women. The problem is not mental health—it’s that we teach men from a young age that they should get what they want, the “nice guy” (who’s rarely nice at all) always gets the girl, girls exist for sexual gratification and as trophies … . and then some guys never get past that infantile, “I want it now and I’m going to have it and if I don’t get it I’M GOING TO DO AWFUL THINGS UNTIL I DO GET IT” toddler state.

I’m not saying that eveyone with mental health problems is angry and overly aggressive! I’m saying more that a guy with already existing anger problems or another issue is a lot more likely to react in a violent way. In fact, if a guy is violent due to rejection, I’d probably assume somethings wrong in his head. I don’t think all guys feel entitled. I’ve been physically threatened by a LOT more lesbians than guys. Why? Because girls, for whatever reason, find out that I’m bisexual and decide that they’d like to have sex with me and if I say no, im “homophobic” and a “fake bisexual”. That’s obviously not to say all lesbians are violent, either. I think what I’m trying to say is that if a man (or woman) feels entitled to something (a date, sex, a relationship, whatever), then there probably IS an underlying problem that needs to be dealt with. Because most people just don’t act violent or rude when someone rejects them!

And the problem is systemic. It’s in how we teach our boys.

Megamind - 'Bad Guy' vs ‘Nice Guy’

Seriously, if you haven’t see this movie, you really, really should. There are so many great things about Megamind: anti-bullying, great female character, funny jokes, touching scenes, very detailed animation, super awesome music… The gif set above is probably my favourite thing, however: Nice Guy is the bad guy.

Yeah I’ve kinda wanted to talk about this a lot.

Megamind is the villain, the “bad guy”. She makes it clear that she doesn’t want him. He respects it and walks off. It comes up a few more times but it’s more of an “are you sure?” or “thats how it is” than any sort of demand.

Hal is the new “hero”. His crush on Roxanne turns into an immediate “You love me now because I’m a superhero!” and when she makes it clear that she doesn’t want him, his reaction is to tantrum, then destroy the city, inevitably killing people, and attempting to kill both Roxanne and Megamind.

Hal’s legitimately scary because women have to deal with behavior like his on a constant basis. Don’t be a Hal. Be a Megamind. RESPECT THE “NO”.

Unrelated, but my other favorite thing, besides the whole “villain is a Nice Guy”, is that Minion cross-dresses and Megamind is completely serious when he says “you look fantastic”. Megamind is totally cool about his best friend cross-dressing and encourages it. That’s very important.

Roxanne also is the only character that moves the story along. All the other characters are having an existential crisis. Roxanne throws things and steps up first and is just a fucking queen.

Also I am like 200% convinced Megamind is bi. BUT THATS ME NOT OFFICIAL CANON although Dreamworks has like abandoned Megamind entirely so fandom says he’s bi THE END fandom-canon is now canon fight me on this

Sometimes I think this movie came out a few years too early. Tumblr would have loved the shit out of this. This movie fucks with stereotyped gender roles and Nice Guy thinking and just augh Dreamworks why did you let go of this why why why that was the worst decision ever why

do you ever stop and realize that people probably discuss you from time to time when you aren’t around to witness it

not even in a specifically positive or negative way just like

people mention you, or think of you, you occur to people sometimes

thats the most unnerving thing that i can think of, thats so weird, that i exist to people when im not even interacting with them

omg that’s a gif not a picture^
