ok but seriously my favourite prehistoric animal is definitely andrewsarchus

THEIR JAW WAS A METER LONG

LOOK AT THAT SIZE COMPARISON

BUT THAT’S NOT THE BEST BIT

YOU SEE THEIR CLOSEST LIVING RELATIVES AREN’T BEARS

OR WOLVES

NO

THEIR CLOSEST LIVING RELATIVES
imageARE SHEEP

their flesh eating sheep?

Not really, they say their closest relatives are from Ruminants Sub Order, which yes, includes sheeps, but also includes antelopes, cattle, goats and deers.

So saying they are flesh eating sheeps is stretching it A LOT, andrewsarchus belong to the Cetruminantia sub order which evolved into Ruminantia and the Whippomorpha which then split into Hippopotamidae (Hippos) and Cetacea (Whales and Dolphins), so that is why it is said that Ruminants are their most direct  descendants.

So no my friend, they are not flesh eating sheeps, sheeps and other animals in the ruminant sub order evolved from them, basically they went from eating flesh to eating plants, evolution is a  wonderful thing don’t you agree?

it’s emotional abuse

Cinderella: Do nothing to help yourself. Accept the abuse you get, because one day a fairy person might come out of nowhere and magic you a better life.

Sleeping Beauty: You are not a person in your own right. You exist only to be a pretty thing to look at and drive the plot.

Snow White: Accept whatever offer a stranger makes to you. (I’m not kidding - she does it three times in the original story.)

Jasmine, technically Aladdin: The story is not about you. You are the love interest. You are the prize.

Ariel: It’s completely okay to make a deal with the devil and give up your entire life and free agency (i.e. your voice) for a man you’ve never met. Everything’ll turn out just fine in the end.

Some disney princesses were ok, but some of them could be seen as somewhat sexist ( their stories, not so much the actual princesses,) but a lot of these disney movies were made when people were less enlightened about gender issues in general.

I think it’s important to realize when most of these movies came out.

Aurora was grateful to the fairies for caring for her and gladly helped them when needed.

Jasmine wanted to go against the expected norms and marry for love, not just for status.

Ariel wanted to be part of the human world BEFORE she met Eric ( “Part of Your World” ring a bell?)  Eric was just icing on the cake and Ursula, like any good salesman, successfully used that point to make a deal.

IM SORRY DID YOU COMPLETELY IGNORE JASMINE’S ENTIRE CHARACTER ABOUT WANTING TO CHOOSE HER OWN LOVE AND INSTEAD CLAIM SHE’S NOTHING BUT A PRIZE?!?!?!!

YEAH, FUCK FEMALES THINKING FOR THEMSELVES AND DOING WHAT THEY WANT, CLEARLY SINCE SHE MARRIED THAT MAKES HER NOTHING BUT A PRIZE. I MEAN IT’S NOT LIKE THAT’S THE ENTIRE POINT OF FEMINISM OR ANYTHING.

THERE’S PROBABLY SOME MORE BULLSHIT IN OP’S STATEMENTS IN HE OTHERS, (LIKE THE FACT THAT CINDERELLA WAS FUCKING ABUSED), BUT IM TOO PISSED TO GO INTO THEM RIGHT NOW.

It’s not like Jasmine totally ranted IN THE MOVIE about how she isn’t a prize to be won and only wanted “Prince Ali” AFTER he stopped acting like the stereotypical stuck up prince and more like himself.

Yeah that totally didn’t happen

To address the image post: it matters for a few reasons. (And I’m using ‘gay princess’ as an example here because it’s most relevant to me, but substitute any other marginalised group.)

Most of the reasons come down to normalising lesbianism; making it something that people don’t gawk at with the attitude of ‘how weird’. A couple of important parts of that:

- Disney is a major children’s franchise, and as such it has a lot of publicity and a lot of respect and familiarity. For me, if I’d heard about a Disney film with a gay princess when I was younger, that would have gone quite a way towards giving me some notification that not everyone thought being gay was an abomination. Sure, the people round me who thought that wouldn’t have changed their mind, but this major franchise, aimed at children, showing that they didn’t think being gay was an abomination would have shown that it was by no means just crazy evil people on the fringe of society.

- Disney being specifically a children’s franchise also means that it would combat the idea that LGBT themes - and, by extension, LGBT people - are an ‘adult’ issue, and are not appropriate for children. Obviously that’s not the case; you can substitute a Disney prince/princess couple with a princess/princess couple without adding anything more explicit than is already there, but it’s a common assumption/stigma.

- Additionally, Disney shapes a lot of the cultural narratives for a lot of little girls; again, for me at least, showing that there was an option beyond ‘you have to get married to a guy and live happily/unhappily ever after’ would have been incredibly valuable. (And Disney has been doing this, most recently with Brave, which makes me incredibly excited; a princess choosing not to get married was such an important thing for me. So I’m not decrying the value of that at all.)

So yeah. Sure, there are good and useful lessons in Disney. I cried at Mulan, watching it recently, because I related to her struggles with the societal ideals imposed on her. I loved that Brave let Merida choose not to marry. But that doesn’t mean that representation isn’t important, and that having a gay princess wouldn’t mean a huge amount to a lot of people.

((Also, unless I’m parsing wrongly, takashi0 seems to be implying that Cinderella wasn’t abused, which is just bemusing.)

I am sorry but if you need a cartoon to validate a choice you supposedly made because you wanted to, you feel happy with and know very well the consequences of chosing that but you don’t care because you’re supposedly happy with your choice NO MATTER what people tell you…then I think you might not be sure of what you want.

Disney doesn’t have the moral obligation to appeal to marginalized groups so these groups will feel special loved and accepted, they know people who think gays are wrong won’t change their minds because they show a lesbian princess, quite the contrary, it’ll turn those people against them and it’ll be bad for bussiness, which rememeber, they are a company first.

Disney will get to make a story with an homosexual princess, I am sure they will, but they’ll do it when the time is right and the focus will be to tell an amazing engaging story, not to please you all.

But yeah, if you have accepted to be gay in these day and age, you don’t need Disney to bless you, you chose it, it was your will to chose because you’re confident in your desires and that is all you need.

Being gay isn’t a choice, dipshit, and I didn’t choose it.

And media with LGBTQ themes from main(ish)stream places is, oddly enough, selling rather well. Because we are so desperate to see people like us onscreen.

Again with that.

Why are gay/Trans people so offended by the idea that their preferences are not “Natural” and they weren’t born like that, why is that a problem? I don’t like that notion because it means your life has been chosen before you’re even out of the womb, I am more of the idea of free will, YOU chose what to do with your life and no one, not even nature can tell you otherwise.

You not being “Born that Way” isn’t an insult, it doesn’t have to be an insult, quite the contrary, is a comfirmation that YOU have the power over your life, no one else.

I know they sell well and it’d be wonderful if they did, but remember Disney is a massive company that appeals an incredibly wide range of people and some of them are still with doubts regarding homosexuality, like I said, that doesn’t mean they won’t make gay characters, hell they made Justin Hammer gay, so that is a step forward, give them time, they didn’t become a massive wealthy company by makign rash and impulsive decisions, they know marketing much better than you and I, give them time and they’ll give you a gay Disney character.

cleareyesfullheartscantlosee asked:

Why are you so misogynist by denying women the right to have their own opinions about anything, especially feminism? That's one of the most unfeminist things I've ever seen. If a woman doesn't want to be a feminist, it's her own choice. And acting like this isn't going to help matters any.

javo01:

Hello,

Sorry you misunderstood. Women clearly have the right to have their own opinions about anything…wherever feminism has had important success.

In many countries in the world, women are not allowed to express their own opinions, to choose who they marry, or to choose what to do with their lives. 140 million girls and women worldwide do not even have the right to keep their genitalia!

I know the cartoon is disgusting. Violence against women is disgusting. Sadly, it is real. It is happening as I write this.

Feminism is important because it is fighting to change this. To give women all over the world the rights they don’t have. That’s my opinion, and you and any other woman can have theirs.

And feminism is not important only far away in developing countries. Did you know 83% of girls aged 12 to 16 in public schools in the United States have been sexually harassed in some way?

I know many feminists are extremists. And all extremes tend to be bad and unwelcoming to the external. But feminism does not equal extremism. And it is so important to have people supporting feminism, to end violence against women worldwide, and to protect their human rights!

I don’t know whether acting like this is going to help. But I do my best. Usually acting makes the difference.

Cheers.

Compadre creo que te metistes con algo que no entiendes del todo.

Segun tu las Anti Feministas en Tumblr son mujeres que estan en contra del feminismo y sus ideales y tu como todo buen caballero en armadura blanca (Y por que probablemente tu eres un feminista tambien) salistes a hacer algo y hicistes ese dibujo.

Entiendo lo que trabas de hacer, pero la CAGASTES de una manera que no tienes idea.

Llegastes con la idea de que “Oh malditas Anti Feministas queriendo destruir un movimiento que TODOS necesitan, debo detenerlas” y viendo tus respuesta se nota que no sabes absolutamente NADA sobre las Anti Feministas y las pintas como pendejas maltratadas a las que el patriarcado les ha lavado el cerebro, ese fue tu error.

El Anti Feminismo en Tumblr  esta en contra de lo que el feminismo se ha convertido, un movimiento de odio contra los hombres y que perpetua la idea de que ironicamente, las mujeres son debiles y estan sometidas.

El feminismo en el primer mundo ya hace años dejo de ser lo que originalmente era, ya se corrompio demasiado, por eso es que tuvo que nacer el movimiento Anti Feminista, para ponerlas en su lugar y que hicieron ellas? Decir que tenian Misoginia Interna y que no sabian lo que querian, que eran ignorantes y unas estupidas.

Ellas no lo son, no son mujeres tontas, ellas son chicas muy inteligentes que ven lo que el feminismo actual trata de vender y no estan de acuerdo, ven todos los problemas que traeria si se aceptan cosas como la Cultura de la Violacion etc y estan tratando de evitar que eso pase, no por que no quieran derechos para la mujer, todo lo contrario, estan tratando de evitar que el feminismo destruya todo lo que ha creado.

En algo tienes razon, paises como en latino america, medio oriente, africa si necesitan el feminismo, pero tambien considera que el feminismo de estas zonas es MUY diferente al del primer mundo, aun esta en una etapa de aprendizaje y lo peor que le puede pasar es que trate de imitar al feminismo del primer mundo, por que entonces dejarian de ser personas que luchan por igualdad de oportunidades y respeto para la mujer y se convertiria en uno de odio hacia hombres y la popularizacion de la victimimizacion de la mujer.

De nuevo, se nota que tu intencion era buena, pero como dicen los de 4chan, te falto “Lurkear MOAR” por decirlo asi, te hubieras ahorrado muchas puteadas si lo hubieras hecho.

About Anti-Feminism.

Sobre la nueva tendencia anti-feminista, y el tumblr de mujeres contra el feminismo. A ustedes, mujeres contra el feminismo, abran los ojos: hay mucho mundo más allá del novio perfecto que pudieron haberse conseguido. Hay muchas mujeres pasándola muy mal. Tal vez no compartas algunas perspectivas de algunas feministas que se pasan de la raya, pero en el fondo, el feminismo lucha por proteger a esas mujeres que hoy se encuentran desprotegidas ante una sociedad chauvinista y machista.

About the new anti-feminist trend, tumblr and women against feminism. To you women against feminism, open your eyes: there is much world beyond perfect boyfriend that could have been achieved. There are many women facing dire straits. Maybe not share some perspectives of some feminists who step out of line, but basically, feminism you fight to protect these women who are now unprotected against a chauvinistic and sexist society.”

Seeing some of the posts in his blog, I get what he is trying to do  but he didn’t deliver his message in the most efficient manner.

Spreading the aproach of “Women Against Feminist are just Brainwashed Girls by the Patriarchy”

No they’re not you idiots, they are women who see beyond the lies and can see the true nature of what feminism has become and have chosen to reject everything is trying to impose in society.

There is no influence of the Patriarchy Here, these are smart women who can take care of themselves just fine and don’t need to play the victim card.

If anything he should go against ACTUAL Tumblr Feminist because they are the ones who can’t see beyond their own ass into the rest of the world and try to measure it with their first world system.

So yeah, good intentions but completely misguided.

Tumblr can teach you many different methods to win any kind of argument you find yourself into, just follow the one you prefer the most and you’ll ALWAYS win because……… ¿?

Remember a few points before using any of them: Use as many insults as you can, the more you insult your openent, the better,…

WOW YOU ARE A REALLY DISGUSTING PERSON LOL.

politicalsexkitten still laughing at this ridiculousness and this mf wanna follow me and cry some mo.

Why not? You seem like an interesting individual, so I felt like following you, It might be fun.

skeletonteaparty asked:

Thank you :)

Your welcome :D

Keep doing what you do, you look great, it is pointless to argue with sjw, no matter what you do or say, you will always be an evil person.

And with people that advocate Cultural Appropriation is even worst because 9 out of 10, they have no idea or full understanding about the things they try to protect, they just want to feel enlighted and amazing for protecting minorities, it’s not even a genuine act of love.

But you seem like a person who do know and understand what you do, as long as you do that, you’ll always be doing the right thing so don’t let them get to you.

Have a nice day n_n

So much ignorance caught on camera. It’s not cute to dress up as Native or stick a bindi on your forehead to look cute for some lame honky festival.  Y’all aren’t cute, but merely racist.

-Melanie

Cultural Appropriation.

What the fuck am I looking at?

Disgusting.

Plain as day racism. The one on the left looks like she’s wearing some appropriative clothing as well.

Come over here so I can kick your ass.

stay out of the god damn tags because you for damn sure aren’t Native American 

Okay, so perhaps like all of you sheep, I should jump on the next bandwagon and encourage segregation and hate, like you all seem to be in complete favour of. Or, perhaps, I’ll just keep being me, celebrating the multiculturalism I appreciate and love other people and continue having fun. It sounds a whole lot better to me, than sitting there vilifying, attacking and condemning someone I don’t know based on a single photo they posted on the internet. Haters gonna hate.

ooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhmyyyyyyyyyyyyyygooooooooddddd sooooooo much cultural appropriation going on here and the white tears here is just..just…smh x10000000

Oh wow this is amazing, go on girl, you look great.

Chemicals? Umm no, how about you go back to your high school chemistry lessons? When you put things in chemicals they fizz or break apart. There is no way they are chemicals in our body.

OH! AND BEFORE YOU SAY BUT “DNA”. I googled something, I did my research. DNA stands for “Deoxyribonucleic acid”. That’s right. Acid. When you put things in acid they melt? So why are we not all melting? 

THEY ARE NO CHEMICALS IN OUR BODY PLEASE GO BACK TO SCHOOL. 

Almost Everything is a chemical you dumbfuck. Hormones are chemicals. Water is a chemical. You’re honestly just such an idiot.
