IT’S BEAUTIFUL! #darksouls
Imagine a wall full of circular holes, that circles can keep walking in and out of with no difficulty.
Now imagine that the triangles manage to get the resources together, after years of not being able to fit through the circle’s holes, to drill a single triangle space into the wall.
Now imagine that the circle — who previously supported the triangle’s efforts because they are well-rounded (har) and value equality — comes along and sees the construction project. But instead of being happy, they get angry.
“Well, I won’t be able to fit through your hole!!!!” the circle cries.
“I helped you get the drill!!!!” the circle shrieks.
“Make it fit me too!!!!” the circle demands.
The triangles, barely holding it together enough to get a triangle hole together, stare at the circle in confusion.
“You have all the holes you need,” the triangles explain. “This is for us. You don’t need to fit through our hole, too.”
“YOU’RE BEING UNEQUAL AND HURTING MY FEELINGS!” the circle wails. “I DON’T SUPPORT YOUR HOLE IF IT DOESN’T FIT ME TOO. GIVE ME MY DRILL BACK.”
“It’s not your drill, it’s our drill. You helped us get it, because you said you cared.”
“I ONLY CARED WHEN I THOUGHT YOU’D MAKE A HOLE EVERYONE COULD FIT THROUGH. YOU’RE PERPETUATING INEQUALITY!!!”
“Why is it up to us, the small group that has never been able to fit through the wall at all, to make a hole everyone can use? Why isn’t it up to you, the people who have been able to cross back and forth at will for years? We just want to see the other side; why are you yelling at us?”
“I DIDN’T ASK TO BE BORN A CIRCLE, OMG. I’VE HAD TO WORK HARD ALL MY LIFE TOO. YOU’RE JUST BEING BIGOTED AGAINST ME BECAUSE OF SOMETHING I CAN’T CONTROL, JUST LIKE EVERYONE IS AGAINST YOU.”
“You are interfering with our project and asking us to comfort you while we’re trying to make progress. Please leave.”
“I’m going to tell everyone about this,” the circle warns. “Nobody will support you now.”
“Apparently nobody ever did,” the triangles sigh, getting back to work.
It’s kind of sad
That we have to draw comics using colorful shapes
To explain systematic inequality to people
we’d probably already have hoverboards if we didn’t spend so much time arguing over whether women are people and if they should be allowed to do science
I mean yeah cause hover boards are more essential to life than basic fucking human rights.
you probably misunderstood this post
#this is not an exaggeration okay #children do say this #children do wonder why they can’t find themselves in the media #don’t fucking tell me it doesn’t matter #it matters so much #children NEED to see themselves represented #or else they grow up feeling inferior and not worthy
THIS IS FROM AGENTS OF SHIELD YOU COMPLETE ARSE
SCREW YOU TUMBLR, OKAY THE KID NEVER SAID THAT THE LEGIT LINE IS “I’m okay” THIS KID’S FAMILY REALLY POOR OKAY AND HE DIDN’T WANT HIS DAD TO SPEND MONEY FOR HIS BIRTHDAY GOD DAMN IT
GET OUT OF HERE WITH YOUR PRETENTIOUS SOCIAL JUSTICE BLOGGING
IS THIS FOR REAL HAHAHA I JUST LAUGHED MYSELF TO DEATH BYE
No seriously. His lip movement obviously doesn’t match the subs
social justice bloggers are the worst
Even knowing that it’s from Agents of Shield, and knowing that’s not what he’s saying, I still think those tags are saying something important. Representation does matter. But so does context.
im gonna cry omg this is so cute i love Gordon Ramsey so much
Our entire world history nailed.
Things which remain consistant - Sex, death and war.
this is the greatest thing I have seen on tumblr.
I had to have this
This is incredible
You know what else stays constant in these images? The way women are depicted. Men are shown in different sizes, ages, with different careers, while the women are all just copies of one another, merely in a different outfit. They’re all tall, thin, young and beautiful, used as objects for sex and the entertainment of men. In the mean time the men go to battle, make discoveries, make progress happen.
Yeah, what about no. This may be an accurate depiction of how many men see the role of women, but you can go suck a horse dick if you think this is an accurate description of the role women actually played in history.
^ FUCKING THANK YOU
I would believe that the reason all the women are tall, thin, young, and beautiful is because they were the ideals in each of these societies, just like the outfits in each picture. And almost all of them were patriarchies, where the men did rule and the women were desired for sex, kids, and maintaining the home and were unable to do much else. That’s not saying there weren’t great ladies in each era, but history according to us has hidden most of them, and personally I think this photo is trying to depict the norms of each society in human history: sex, death, and war.
Pretty clear how the white western world feels about women and minorities.
Yeah, would also like to point out that this isn’t a depiction of world history, it’s a depiction of white, predominantly English or American history. With some colour thrown in as to try and not appear racist.
I found this in my developmental psychology textbook.
Seeing studies like this always make me want to scream at the people who say that men are naturally superior in science and mathematics and women are simply naturally oriented toward literature and history. Imagine if girls were just raised like boys and given the opportunities to be successful or encouraged to pursue STEM education. How much “smarter” would women be if we began the race at the starting line instead of 100 feet behind?
Went to the Field Museum a couple weekends ago and the amount of things kids were completely wrong in thinking (both boys and girls) that their parents didn’t correct, even though I was written in plain English right in front of them on said exhibit, was just appalling.
This doesn’t surprise me, it just makes me sick, and makes it so much clearer why women can’t catch up regardless the leaps forward we’re making.
