Research and Besmirch

On tumblr, the statement, 'Hell hath no fury like a researcher's information' proves to be a truth in such a social network where feelings are what justify social movements, political agendas and the like.

I'm here to represent that statement and to give an input biased towards evidence.

self diagnosing is so hard because everytime you’re like “maybe I am mentally ill” theres also a big part of you going “nah you’re probably just a naturally lazy/nasty/disgusting/useless person trying to find an excuse for your behavior” because of the institutionalized ableism that runs through everything

So go to the doctor and get an actual diagnosis?

Why don’t poor people just buy more money?

Remind me again what you’re supposed to do with a self-diagnosis.

There’s always a reminder on those little tests that say something close to, “This does not in any way substitute for a professional opinion.” There’s a good reason why they have those on there.

Also, it is somewhat challenging to determine mental illness because it deals mostly with behavior. That sort of thing brings in subjective elements to the answer that can change from Psy expert to Psy expert.

Two MSU basketball players raped a woman in the dorms then one admitted to it. Their only consequence was that they had to move out of the dorms. This picture is of me and one other woman holding up this banner during Midnight Madness. Two other brave souls had a banner on the other side for a while before some jerk started playing tug or war with them over it. This was taken before we got booed at by 10,000 people and police escorted from the stadium. 

How screwed up are people to boo at this? 

Let’s keep reposting this. Rapists should be charged.

how is sport more important than the lives of women? like honestly baffling

When you bring on something depressing that people tend to avoid talking about into a place where people typically go to for entertainment and expect enjoyment, you’re gonna get booed at. It’s somewhat inappropriate especially due to it being extremely direct without explanation.
Are you all seriously ignoring context to villainize people?
On a sidenote, MSU is under a federal investigation which could be linked to the rape in 2010. Yes, this wasn’t recent.

Say that you want to practice the lifestyle of a baby once more to relive the glory days.

That’s hella weird.

How about asking your partner to do some sexual roleplay without actually referring to what’s involved in that?

These males claiming “I’m not like one of those guys” that make us feel uncomfortable, catcall, and harass women. So how come whenever any of that happens; none of you fucking step up and use your damn male privilege. If you’re staying silent when women are getting harassed from walking down the street you’re apart of the problem too.

so many feminists be like “women don’t owe you shit” then say crap like this lmao

yeah because having some human decency must mean we gotta owe guys blowjobs… I swear people come up with the dumbest shit

"I have a vagina, so men are required to defend me from things that make me feel uncomfortable."

Fuckin dumbass cunt trying to act like they are so morally superior for demanding protection from hurt fee-fees.

"If you’re staying silent when women are getting harassed from walking down the street you’re apart of the problem too.”

Don’t worry guys. We’re apart from the problem as the OP states. Although the methods to concluding at that point are somewhat foggy.

In other news, the OP needs to learn a thing or two about grammar and spelling.

Obviously, when a black guy is shot by a white dude, it’s always racist. That oppression from the times of black slavery is just carried through genetically. You just can’t trust those white dudes. For all we know, they’re just carrying whips at the ready.

Who’s Alex?
Billboard demonstrating gender stereotypes as most people automatically assume that Alex is the boy.

Or maybe it’s photo composition.  The attention is focused on Chris, so you’re going to assume he’s Alex, regardless of gender stereotypes.

I agree with you on that. Chris is really centered here on this photo and just makes you assume that he’s the subject of the photo. Not to mention that the name Alex is next to Chris, and we generally assume that the name next or on the person is their actual name.
I’d also like to point out that the girl’s hue in this photo is at the point where the background color and her are close in color, making her sort of blend in better. That just highlights Chris even more as the subject.
This billboard is misleading in its methods of getting their point across.

sometimes i forget that usa is basically a bunch of little countries clustered together that pay taxes to their government overlords.

No. That’d be the UN we’re talking about who also destroy traditions of countries for the sake of ‘productivity’.

The difference between her and Iggy

#why are we still even comparing her to iggy it’s like comparing a Ferrari to a razor scooter (x)

oh wow tumblr star nicki minaj does a publicity stunt and everyone believes her
right after she skinny-shames girls who can’t help it and overall chooses who she gets to represent with her ‘feminism’.
She’s not a real feminist if she chooses who she supports, and she’s so rich that she doesn’t even pay the taxes she’s complaining about paying
We pay for every trial thank you very much it’s called the legal system it’s like half a cent for every trial you idiot.
Also jesus christ just because someone doesn’t mention something that isn’t huge news it doesn’t mean they’re inferior. You weren’t saying anything when she ignored gamergate, or any of the other semi-important recent events, but the second she does you all go into a nicki-loving frenzy and yell that everyone else is terrible because they didn’t talk about it. Throwing your opinion into the wind like that isn’t going to do anything except make you look like an intolerant ass.
Furthermore, you fucking goddamned idiots, the man was INNOCENT. That was decided by a group of fucking American men and women who weren’t involved and only had what they’d heard from the trial to work with.
And they said he was innocent.
So shut the hell up about racism and shit.The boy attacked someoneAnd gotShot.The end.Game over.Thanks for playing.Goodbye.

Evidence sways the court, not feelings. ‘little’ and ‘boy’ can be so misleading most of the time.
