Charts from OKCupid, showing how straight women and men rate each other based on ages. For women, the men they find most attractive are roughly their own age. For men, the women they find most attractive are roughly the same age - 20 to 23 - regardless of the age of the man. (538)

Good fucking Christ.

men are shit

daily reminder that men are fucking gross, as if you need one

WOW OK

FIRST OF ALL NO ONE HAS VIRTUALLY ANY CONTROL OVER WHO THEY FIND ATTRACTIVE

BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY

THERE’S THIS THING THAT FUCKING HAPPENED CALLED FUCKING EVOLUTIONWHICH YOU SHITSTAINS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IF YOUVE TAKEN A SINGLE DAY OF SCIENCE CLASS.

EVOLUTION SHAPED EVERY SINGLE ONE OF OUR CURRENT SEXUAL BEHAVIORS. ITS ONLY JOB WAS TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR ANCESTORS HAD THE MOST SUITABLE TRAITS TO RAISE LOTS OF HEALTHY BABIES.

WHAT DID THAT MEAN FOR WOMEN?? WELL LET ME TELL YOU THAT BABIES ARE A SHITLOAD OF WORK. SO CAVEWOMEN HAD TO FIND A MATE THAT WAS NOT ONLY GENETICALLY SUITABLE BUT ALSO SEEMED LIKE HE WOULD STICK AROUND AND TAKE CARE OF THE FUCKING BABY. A REAL MATURE TRUSTWORTHY KINDA GUY. I.E., SOMEONE HER OWN AGE PROBABLY.

AND MEN???? WELL, SHIT, ALL THEY NEEDED TO DO WAS MAKE SURE THEIR SPERM WENT TOWARDS MAKING A HEALTHY ASS BABY. YOU KNOW WHO USUALLY GIVES BIRTH TO HEALTHY BABIES? YOUNG WOMEN. AS WOMEN AGE THE RISK OF NATURAL GENETIC DEFECTS INCREASES EXPONENTIALLY.

MEN BEING ATTRACTED TO YOUNG WOMEN IS NOT A CHOICE ON THEIR PART, AND IT IS NOT “DISGUSTING” OR EVIDENCE THAT MEN ARE “SHIT”. IT IS A BIOLOGICALLY, EVOLUTIONARILY ENCODED TRAIT. AND FURTHERMORE, BEING ATTRACTED TO YOUNG WOMEN IS NOT THE SAME THING AS CHASING AFTER OR HARRASSING THEM. THIS CHART SAYS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT MORAL CHARACTER.

FUCKING SHIT, I AM A YOUNG LESBIAN. IF ANYTHING I SHOULD FEEL THE MOST VICTIMIZED BY THIS CHART.

BUT I DON’T. BECAUSE I UNDERSTAND FUCKING SCIENCE. GOODBYE

or thin white women under thirty are pushed relentlessly as the only acceptable definition of attractive while white men of all ages are accepted and pushed by the media as attractive, and that’s misogynistic and gross no matter what role evolution may have once distantly played in it, if any, and being a lesbian does not make you a universal authority on what is and is not a result of misogyny.

idk though apparently adult bi women are not woman enough to know about these sorts of things, I will have to weigh in when I am younger and gayer

Evo psych isn’t science, and I understand it just fine, which is why I find it and the social structures it aims to justify repugnant. /signed, experimental psych MS, current med student, ludicrously intelligent, bisexual cis woman

I think straight people genuinely don’t know the meaning of the word “Gay”… 

No, I mean literally both readable signs in this picture say BISEXUAL and TRANS and straight people still go “gay and lesbian”.

This is one of the most accurate things I have ever seen.

There are two core effects in play here:
First, there’s microaggression. Basically, this is the fact that minor shit adds up to major shit if you’re constantly experiencing it from pretty much everyone around you.
Second, there’s the fact that something which seems minor to someone in a position of privilege is often very much not minor from the perspective of the actual victim.
“Tumblr overreaction” is a function of people having a reasonably safe space to sincerely vent from the net result of all the shit they’re experiencing in their lives, not people who “want to be offended by everything”.

Anyone ever consider that the second graph is in fact accurate, but not because “lol sjws get mad at everything” but instead because EVERYTHING REALLY IS THAT APPALLING?

i feel like “tumblr” is codeword for “marginalized people speaking openly about oppression” so the dichotomy is “normal people” and “oppressed people who don’t know their place” so literally if you agree with the original post i have nothing to say to you except you’re garbage

I’m looking forward to authoritarian personality types trying to figure out a way to blame her for you know…being arrested for waiting for her family outside of a restaurant. 

Nevermind the “free advice” the arresting officer gives about being “in America”. 

oops

U know what would have changed my world growing up? A depiction of a gay character in children’s media as a fully fleshed out person and a positive role model

U know what is and has always been perfectly useless? “Queer representation” in the form of throwaway gay jokes aimed at adult audiences. If you think that’s good enough for our youth then fuck you

"One of the most malevolent characteristics of racist thought is that it never produces new knowledge. It seems able to merely reformulate and refigure itself in multiple but static assertions. It has no referent in the material world; like the concept of black blood or white blood or blue blood, it is designed to construct artificial borders and maintain them against all reason and all evidence to the contrary. And while racist thought and language have an almost unmitigated force in political and social life, the realm of racial difference has been allowed an intellectual weight to which it has no claim. It is truly a realm that is no realm at all — an all-consuming vacancy that is both common and strange."

Toni Morrison  (via knowledgeequalsblackpower)

Evidence for this: see the ceaseless scramble by white intellectuals throughout history to find a material referent for racism

do not let white academia fool you into thinking that

  • the greatest authors that were and ever will be are white men
  • every great philosopher came out of europe
  • mathematics and science were at their highest point when used by white men
  • the most beautiful city in the world is paris
  • colonialism was a golden age
  • europe is the pinnacle of civilization

I am a (female) fashion designer. I create unique dresses, mostly for cocktail parties and weddings.

Me: So here is my quote for the cocktail gown that we discussed last week.

Client: Thanks… I understand the lines for fabric and other material, but what is the last…
