Hazel-Sage: Beware of Fangirl

Here you will see a lot of Merlin, Harry Potter, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Supernatural, etc. Plus random pictures of cats because who doesn't love cats? I'm a bit obsessive, especially when it comes to Merthur, Harry/Ginny, and Johnlock, so look out for that! Also, hope you don't mind feminism, as that will most certainly come up frequently. Enjoy :)

So I know this is pretty late, but we have a fourth of July parade in my town that I’m in every year and my barn decided our theme was superheroes. I immediately decided to snap up Captain America and thought Tumblr would appreciate my horse (though I’m still too shy to show my face)!

do you guys remember that one post about how men feel entitled to take up so much space and women have to deal with a lot less?

This is actually a documented thing. You always see men on the subway or tube or whatever using both armrests while women sit with their arms hunched together into their laps. That’s why I always make a point to take up at least one if not both armrests of the tube so men can be uncomfortable for once.

^ again, for all the people telling me posting this picture is complaining too much.

In my college classes (and high school too) guys were always stretching, sticking fists and elbows in my face, leaning their heads back over my desk, over my work, spreading their legs out, kicking my bag with their dirty shoes. And let’s not pretend they were in other guys’ space as much as they were in women’s.

It’s so true, this happens to me every day on the train. Same with the walking thing, women will weave out of the way whereas men just walk straight and plow down anything in their path. I always end up playing chicken with men on the sidewalk now, because I refuse to move out of their way.

I love playing chicken with dudes who hog the sidewalk. BODY CHECK! Fucking assholes.
“NOT ALL MEN ARE LIKE THIS!” FUCK OFF.
“AS A MAN, I THINK THAT…” FUCK OFF.
Men always have the same defensive bullshit to spout every time they get called out on their shit. AND IT IS BORING. They remind me of those toys where you pull a string an they have like 5 phrases they can say. Over and over and over.

same here with playing chicken, its hilarious sometimes because they get this flash of realization in their eyes that says ‘holy shit, she’s NOT going to move/??? what do????’ because THEY ARE SO USED TO EVERYONE MOVING FOR THEM

when i was younger my grandpa drew this on a piece of paper,

and he asked me how i, as the red circle, would get around the two people (black circles) if i was walking down the street.
so of course i came back with

moving out of the way for them as i walked.
he asked me if i thought men would do the same and, at the time, i did because i thought it was just common courtesy. but he told me that men would barrel straight through without giving a shit and that i should do the exact same. because i was the one walking and they were the ones in the way. so that’s exactly what i do.


i find this really fascinating because this actually what defines so-called masculine and feminine traits and gestures. the whole limp-wrist thing? that’s someone decreasing the amount of space they take up by not extending their arm fully. same with crossing one’s legs, how it’s considered more masculine to swing your shoulders when you walk creating a wider gait instead of your hips, how someone who holds their elbows tightly into their torso instead of letting them fall more loosely at their sides is considered feminine.
taking up space is not just a frequent habit of males in our culture, its actually how society thinks masculinity is supposed to be expressed.

It’s also why you can seriously freak people out if you’re a woman by sitting back in your chair and draping your arm over the backrest of the one beside it.
Try it.
It’s claiming space, and more importantly, it’s powerful body language. In primates (including humans), the individual that “opens” its chest—that is, leaves it open to attack—is the most dominant of them, precisely because it shows a confidence that no one WILL attack you.
Look at someone who’s comfortable vs someone who’s uncomfortable—the uncomfortable person will inevitably cross their arms or cover their chest to in an instinct to protect the thoracic cavity.
So, when you want to look HELLA confident, open up your chest and make direct eye contact. It feels weird (for women!) at first, but it’s the fastest way to freak a dude out. They genuinely do not know what to do when a woman displays behaviour they recognize as confident.

This was interesting. Literally never thought about it before. 

I never actually thought about it until now, but I’ve experienced this in classes. I always feel terrible when I try to stretch my back or my hair is down and when I lean back a little it touches the desk behind me, so I try not to do it much, but I have literally had a guy rest his foot on the small hole in the back of chairs and when I sat too far back, his foot was touching my butt. And of course, he didn’t move; I perched on my chair for the entire class (and this happened multiple times throughout the quarter) instead of telling him off.
Seriously, it’s not like he couldn’t feel that his foot was practically up my butt. So why didn’t I say something? It was my seat for God’s sake! Definitely going to put some of the ideas above to use if I can get my confidence up - I’m sick and tired of crap like this. In what situation is that normal behavior? My space, he’s not entitled to it.

A woman pours so much hand sanitizer on her hands that it runs off and spills all over the floor. It is pooling at her feet. She continues pouring it. A security guard comes over. Ma’am, you’re causing a disturbance. I’m going to have to ask you to leave. The security guard slips, falls. The security guard is covered in hand sanitizer. The security guard is so clean. The woman is so clean. The woman’s hands are so clean.

And now, the weather…

Heosemys spinosa is an endangered species. 

punks almost dead

That is not a Heosemys Spinosa,its a Graptemys nigrinoda. 
they are in the low risk list, therefore, not endangered.

Punks not as almost dead as we thought.
