at my school there’s an english teacher and an american teacher and they always glare at each other and when they pass each other in the hallway the american teacher will say ‘good show governor’ or something and the english teacher will say ‘god bless the land of the free’ and both in terrible accents and like the whole school ships it

when i first read this i thought to myself, what school teaches american as a subject?

The first time I held a human brain in Anatomy Lab I was completely speechless. I looked at my classmates expecting a similar reaction and they looked back at me confused like…”dude let’s start identifying the structures.” I had to take a step back and let it process…in my hands was someone’s entire life. From start to finish, every memory, every emotion, every bodily control…was right there in my hands. 

I don’t care if people unfollow this is spectacular

This post just fucked me up literally

Rather, what makes Tumblr culture such a safe space for women might ironically be the thing that made it so easy for Macedo to wear the “disguise” of an enlightened geek boy. When you frame yourself as an outside-the-establishment liberal who understands the struggles that women face, it puts you in an elevated, respected position—and it becomes easier to abuse your power in the community.

The Daily Dot

I think any of my fellow men on tumblr who find themselves in any sort of elevated or respected positions need to examine themselves (myself included!) on this matter. If we’re only using our so called enlightenment to further our own social position, win brownie points, or get sex, then we are hacks that are no better than the common misogynist save for our more exceptional manipulation skills.

We (as straight cis men, generally, though this could apply to anyone else I guess) need to think hard and ask ourselves “Am I only identifying as a feminist to impress my peers, especially if said peers are women?” and if the answer is yes then we need to take a fucking step back and stop being such terrible fucking people.
