I PROMISE you that every single depressed person has been told to exercise already, you are never ever ever going to be the first person to suggest that to any depressed person ever.
I want to see a reality tv show where straight dudes have to read the shitty messages they send to women to their mothers.

Yeah, it goes to the “DISMISS ANYTHING WOMEN SAY” part of his brain, while he thinks about doing violence towards her. Men=shit.
A male friend of mine that develops AAA games told me, “When a woman criticizes me, it goes to a different part of my brain than when a man on my team does. I get defensive really quickly. I’m trying to get better about it.” I don’t think his is a unique experience.
We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.
This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.
they’re probably really boring so make sure your phones fully charged
I think I’m going to write my major research paper on pornography. We have to have a driving question and I think I’ll make it something along the lines of “how is pornography impacting our culture?” … I’m going to go talk to my prof about it, she’s hilarious and cool. She reminds me of my high school English teacher who I adored.
Regular users of pornography are less likely to convict for a rape, and less likely to give a harsh sentence to a rapist if in fact convicted. Conversely, individuals who do not use pornography are more likely to convict an accused rapist.
