"It’s like presenting a dog with a sirloin steak and expecting him not to eat it."
You’ve probably heard some twit try and use an analogy like that to try and ‘excuse’ rape or creepy behavior toward women at some point.
I presented my two dogs with an actual sirloin steak, then told them no.
Woofles didn’t even approach it when I set it down, as I hadn’t told him it was okay to do so.
Quinn approached it, completely ready to take it from the plate (as her manners are not yet as good as Woofles’ manners), was told no, and immediately backed off.
When Woofles heard the no, he turned away as well because he knew that steak was not for him to eat.
Notice how they didn’t ‘argue’, didn’t take it anyway, didn’t get aggressive, didn’t beg, or didn’t try to somehow persuade me that they should be able to have it.
They were told no, they backed off.
Dogs can understand the concept of “no”.
Dogs are capable of learning the concept of “no”.
Dogs are capable of respecting the concept of “no”.
People who rape should really not be compared to dogs, as dogs (as you can see) can easily understand the idea of, “No.”
So, essentially, if you use that analogy to excuse rape, you’re saying you have less self control and fewer basic social manners than my two dogs.
That also probably means you should be neutered and kept on a leash.

This is the young man that was walking with Mike Brown,
cause the world needs to continue to see
this is the saddest and most terrifying shit ever.
This breaks my heart.
This is the true story. Don’t believe anything the news has reported. This is legit.
Fudge recipe on a headstone
Looking through the Ferguson tag, with people going “They’re just after the looters. It’s the looters fault.”
Then tell me why I just watched the police launch rubber bullets and tear gas at a group of people doing nothing but chanting, holding up their hands, and screaming…
It is 2014.
MLK did not die for this bullshit.
THIS IMAGE SHOULD BE A HUGE WARNING SIGN FOR PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF FERGUSON. The people of Ferguson should be concerned, yes, because of everything that’s happening,
BUT WHEN THE KKK IS PROTESTING FOR THE POLICE WHO HAVE ARRESTED AND ATTACKED PEOPLE FOR A PEACEFUL PROTEST THAT’S WHEN YOU KNOW THE U.S. HAS A PROBLEM.
DO WE NOT REMEMBER OUR HISTORY? THAT THE KKK WAS PROMOTING SEGREGATION IN THE 1950s AND BEFORE THAT? THAT THEY WOULD HANG AND KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE - BLACK PEOPLE - WHO WERE PROTESTING FOR THEIR RIGHTS?
DOES ANYONE SEE HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF OR ARE WE JUST GOING TO REMAIN IGNORANT?
wow I didn’t know fuckin chocolate eggs were gendered
OKAY LET ME TELL YOU A STORY ABOUT THE FUCKING PINK EGGS.
I work at a concession stand in an ice rink. We sell a bunch of chocolate bars and snacks and shit including Kinder Surprise eggs.
So one day this woman comes up to the counter with her two little kids, a girl who’s probably about 6 or 7 and a little boy, maybe 3 or 4. The mom asks what they want, the little girl points at the Kinder eggs and says “One of those!”. I asked if she wanted the white or the pink egg. She said pink. The little boy pointed to the Kinder eggs and says “One of those!”. I asked if he wanted the white or the pink egg. He said pink. HOLY SHIT IT WAS LIKE I OPENED THE GATES OF HELL. The mom absolutely FLIPPED and was like “YOU ARE NOT GETTING THE PINK EGG IT’S ONLY FOR GIRLS. YOU CAN GET THE WHITE ONE OR NOTHING AT ALL”. The little boy looked at his mom and said “But I want the same as ______ (whatever the sister’s name was)”. The mom completely ignored him and turned to me and gave me a death glare. “He can have the white egg.”
I had to give a little boy a white egg when he wanted the pink so that he could be the same as his big sister and he started crying. The mom just reiterated that the pink egg was for girls and told him that boys don’t cry.
And this is why we shouldn’t gender fucking chocolate eggs.
This is actually a relatively new thing, originally Kinder Eggs were all white like the ones on the left. I don’t know at what point they decided to make ‘girl’s’ Kinder Eggs, but I do not like it.
Holy shit do not even get me started on how moms constantly police their sons’ masculinity. I’ve seen mothers do it WAY more often than fathers.
I used to work at a bakery that specialized in creating custom cakes. We had this feature where we could print out any image off the computer and put it on a cake (with rice paper). One day this lady comes in and asks for an image we had of the baby Sesame Street characters. They’re all together with cake and confetti, and she asks, “Oh, well since it’s a boy, can you please change all of the little pink confettis into blue confetti? I mean, he’s a boy, you know.”
The fucking confetti.
It barely covered 5% of the image.
Another instance was when a lady asked me for an image of four superheroes to put on her son’s cake because her son was turning four. She admitted to not knowing any superheroes, so I offered the most obvious choice—The Fantastic Four. I pulled up a picture of them and she goes, “Oh no no, we can’t have that. Let’s do another one.” Confused, I pulled up a Justice League one with Batman, Superman, The Flash, and Wonder Woman. Again, she said no. I asked her if she needed anything specific (she didn’t know superheroes, why was she so picky?), and she just said, “Oh, it’s just that he’s a boy, you know? We can’t have a girl superhero on his cake.”
I nearly lost my shit. I did temporarily lose my customer service face and ask why, women have been superheroes all the time, Wonder Woman is iconic, etc etc and she was like, “It’s just that my son has been playing with Barbie dolls lately and I really don’t want him to end up… well, you know.”
This shit has got to stop. When you teach boys that certain things are only for girls, you’re limiting them and you’re teaching them that girls or “girly things” are bad. If you want gender equality as an adult, you better make DAMN sure that you’re teaching the same thing to your kids.
So this woman did not want her son to turn out ‘you know’ and her plan for that was to get him a cake with spandex-clad manly men AND ONLY MEN on it? I don’t think she thought that one through too well…
#in which Bruce Banner finally finds somebody who isn’t afraid to kid around with him #because he has a sense of humour after all #’i’m sorry, that was mean’ anyone? #but everybody tiptoes around him because ‘oh shit, he’s a monster’ #but then he meets Tony #someone who’s not afraid to be around him #someone who might actually be a friend #and that means so much to him and permeates so deep that even when he’s the fucking Hulk he still wants to save Tony’s ass #because by not treating the Hulk like a monster, Tony stopped him from being one
#SCIENCE BRO FEELS

There’s like a million different ways to say “I love you.”
'Put your seat belt on.'
‘Watch your step.’
‘Get some rest.’
…you just gotta listen.
