I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -
Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.
Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.
If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.
And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.
You’re much stronger than you think you are
I’m never gonna pass off the chance to reblog this because hell, sometimes knowing that some one fictional will be there in times like there really does help.
This makes me love Superman even more.
I prefer Michael Straczynski take on a similar scene
Superman: A being capable of moving the heavens and Earth itself, will always take the time to let you just how important you really are
Why do police have quotas? If a doctor went around intentionally sneezing on people to get more patients, that would be seen as a travesty to their profession. But police, can sit around and wait for someone to turn on a red light or commit other mundane ‘offenses’ because they have quotas to meet. Quotas are all the proof we need that policing is not a public service vocation; it’s a business and a subsidiary of Wall Street.
Alright here, I finished up the few Mary Marvel pictures from today that I liked.

I went to the Renaissance faire dressed as a warrior. I had a real sword with me, too. I was standing (in character) next to a sword-fighting ring, where kids of all ages got the chance to pick up a sword and challenge the champion. Some woman walks by, with her little girl. The girl starts walking towards the ring, saying she wants to fight. But the mom pulled her away hella sharply, and was like, “That’s for boys.” You don’t want to be a BOY, do you?” And the girl looked around and saw me. I think she thought I was a boy; I had my hair in a ponytail, and was wearing a hood. So she comes up to me and asks me, “Do you think girls can be fighters, too?” And her mom looks like she’s silently gloating. Like she thinks I’m going to say no. So I take off my hood, untie my hair so that it flows freely, and kneel before her. And I’m like, “Milady, anyone can be a fighter.” I swear, the look on that mother’s face made my day.
The Line Between Advice and Blame
Some people don’t seem to get this. They say “If you don’t want your noodz stolen, don’t put them on iCloud!” And then everyone’s freaks out and they’re like “I’m just giving advice!”
Because there’s two ways that sentence could be understood. To them it sounds like “Here is some helpful advice I am providing for you that will decrease the overall number of distressed people in the world.”
But to the person who’s just had a terrible thing happen to them (or the people actually capable of empathizing with them) it sounds like “If you put your noodz on iCloud, you basically deserve this.”
I think that there are a lot of people to blame for this…the hacker, of course, who I hope feels like complete dirt and gets caught and goes to jail. But also all of the people perpetuating a culture in which some people’s bodies become de facto property of everyone just because they’re actors or whatever.
But blaming the victims is like saying “You deserved to have all of your stuff stolen because you didn’t have an alarm system.”
There is, however, a place for advice (not just for celebrities (though I dearly hope that all of my YouTuber friends are being careful with sensitive stuff) but for everyone) about the best ways to keep sensitive data secure.
Just like celebrities tend to have good home security, there are steps that should be taken (and I’m sure are being taken) to secure their data. And just like we all have locks on our doors, there are also things we can do to decrease the chance that information will be stolen from us.
So let’s take the world as it presents itself and ensure that all advice comes free of blame.
