nOW I KNOW WHAT THE BACK LOOKS LIKE
This was suppose to be for the Hijack Week Blind AU but I couldn’t finish the other days so I’m just gonna post this now as is. Sorry xP
Cause aerinzephyr said ‘theatre au’ and it has to start somewhere owo
among clownfish, gender can be changed and is chosen based on size. the biggest member of a group is always female. if that female dies, the next biggest fish becomes female.
so in an accurate version of finding nemo, marlin would’ve transitioned instantaneously into a female when his wife died.
instead, a real scientific occurrence was alluded to only symbolically, as a joke - of a male assuming the “female role” of nurturing a child.
it’s one of my favorite movies of all time and it’s not like i expect scientific accuracy in a film where animal consciousness is the same as a human’s.
i just like to think sometimes about how the societal concept of gender is considered more relevant and more relatable than science that may happen to make some people uncomfortable even in fucking pixar films.
not that i even fully blame them, how the hell are they gonna sell a film where within the first few minutes of the story, a creature very obviously designated in mannerisms and voice as male suddenly, and naturally, becomes female? you know how many among their target audiences would boycott the movie? you know how many corporations and executives would refuse support or funding or commercial deals of any kind?
you know, honestly it wouldn’t even have to be a remotely different movie for it. the story wouldn’t have to change at all just for the fact of a main character being female instead of male, even given that the character was introduced initially as male.
but i get that it would be such a distracting point for so many people, audiences would get too preoccupied with that detail to appreciate the rest of the movie and it’s cleverness and beauty.
…this is the just kind of stuff i think about sometimes idk. :\
False rape accusations are an anomaly.
True rape accusations are a norm.
You’re, quite literally, more likely to be killed by a comet than falsely accused of rape.
Re-blog now, read later.
"Because 1 in 33 men will be raped in his lifetime, men are 82,000x more likely to be raped than falsely accused of rape. It seems many of us would do well to pay more attention to how rape culture affects us all than be paranoid about false accusers.”
ok but for one, these numbers are arbitrary. statistics do not include unreported or unproven instances, and without direct information as to exactly how these stats were collected, there could well be extreme bias involved in the collection.
for two, yeah, some people use the topic of false rape accusations to derail the focus from rape victims.
the rest are just damn tired of feminists laughing in their face with claims that a very real problem is WAY LESS IMPORTANT than the problem that generally pertains more to the female gender…
for three, exactly how is belittling the legitimacy of false rape accusations NOT alienating, and fighting fire with fire by shooting the same snide indifference at the perceived source - the male gender (i identify as female and i believe the legitimacy and frequency of false rape accusations are not to be dismissed - really this doesn’t have only to do with men)?
for four, feminism in no way is the immature and unproductive comparison of one legitimate problem to another.
i understand that feminists didnt bring up the comparison in the first place. but feminists ARE exacerbating the issue by retaliating with unreliable statistics and essentially telling men: suck it, your problems are way tinier than mine.
attacking one another’s claims of offense gets neither party anywhere. it must be acknowledged that false rape accusations are real and ruin lives. it must be acknowledged rape itself is real and ruins lives.
instead of squabbling over which is worse, can we please be adults about this and recognize the detriments of both? thanks.
the unfamiliar, unbelievable feeling he’s experiencing during this.
Things Girls Have To Do In The Shower:

-wash the body
-try to get conditioner out & fail to get it all out

Things Boys Have To Do In The Shower:
-i dunno i think my brother uses soap sometimes
Don’t complain when my shower’s not 5 minutes long
Cleanliness and pampering are not comparable, and demanding that they be considered equivalents is juvenilely conflating presentation preferences with absolute health/sanitation necessities…
You can take a damn five minute shower and conserve water and focus on bare needs instead of dedicating that much energy and time and resources towards a feminine presentation. You don’t have to change your presentation, no one does. But you also don’t have to act like it is only to be expected of your ~gender~ and perpetuate the very ideals you probably claim to be against like patriarchal sexism… just because this time, emphasizing the artificial differences between the gender binary is beneficial to YOU.
You benefit from the definition of feminine beauty as a physical, sexual, cosmetic, ~obligatory~ thing, at least in the sense that this means you “can’t help it” if your shower is over 5 mins, etc.
Don’t just toss the concept of equality the second it means you have to justify yourself less. That would be one of the original sources of the problem in the first place…
haven’t dolled up older hiccup and colonial jack enuff :B
