*INSTANTLY FALLS IN LOVE*
I AM SO DOWN WITH THIS.
allison growing up and going into the police academy and going to the sheriff for help and encouragement (*｀･ω･)ゞ
the sheriff calming allison down after she freaks out about her final tests (*≧∀≦*)
allison being the new rookie cop on beacon hills police force and the sheriff teasing her but pulling her aside every once in a while to keep her in check (●’ｗ’●)
crappy diner meals at 5am after the sheriff and allison both get off the late shift and just eating in silence (｡･ˇдˇ･｡)
ALLISON AND THE SHERIFF ヽ(.◕ฺˇд ˇ◕ฺ;)ﾉ
I do not understand this “male privilege” bullshit.
What. Fucking. Privileges. Do. Men. Have.???????
Name them. I swear, I challenge you to name these “male privileges” and be able to prove them.
Come on, I fucking dare you.
Oh boy. Well, as a man, I’ll tell you my male privilege.
- My odds of being hired for a job, when competing against female applicants, are probably skewed in my favor. The more prestigious the job, the larger the odds are skewed.
- I can be confident in the fact that my co-workers won’t think that I was hired/promoted because of my sex - despite the fact that it’s probably true.
- If I ever am promoted when a woman of my peers is better suited for the job, it is because of my sex.
- If i ever fail at my job or career, it won’t be seen as a blacklist against my sex’s capabilities.
- I am far less likely to face sexual harassment than my female peers.
- If I do the same task as a woman, and if the measurement is at all subjective, chances are people will think I did a better job.
- If I am a teen or an adult, and I stay out of prison, my odds of getting raped are relatively low.
- On average, I’m taught that walking alone after dark by myself is less than dangerous than it is for my female peers.
- If I choose not to have children, my masculinity will not be questioned.
- If I do have children but I do not provide primary care for them, my masculinity will not be questioned.
- If I have children and I do care for them, I’ll be praised even if my care is only marginally competent.
- If I have children and a career, no one will think I’m selfish for not staying at home.
- If I seek political office, my relationship with my children or who I deem to take care of them will more often not be scrutinized by the press.
- My elected representatives are mostly people of my own sex. The more prestigious the position, the more this is true.
- When i seek out “the person in charge”, it is likely that they will be someone of my own sex. The higher the position, the more often this is true.
- As a child, chances are I am encouraged to be more active and outgoing than my sisters.
- As a child, I could choose from an almost infinite variety of children’s media featuring positive, active, non-stereotyped heroes of my own sex. I never had to look for it; male protagonists were (and are) the default.
- As a child, chances are I got more teacher attention than girls who raised their hands just as often.
- If my day, week or year is going badly, I need not ask of each negative episode or situation whether or not it has sexist overtones. (Nobody’s going to ask if I’m upset because I’m menstruating.)
- I can turn on the television or glance at the front page of the newspaper and see people of my own sex widely represented.
- If I’m careless with my financial affairs it won’t be attributed to my sex.
- If I’m careless with my driving it won’t be attributed to my sex.
- I can speak in public to a large group without putting my sex on trial.
- Even if I sleep with a lot of women, there is little to no chance that I will be seriously labeled a “slut,” nor is there any male counterpart to “slut-bashing.”
- I do not have to worry about the message my wardrobe sends about my sexual availability.
- My clothing is typically less expensive and better-constructed than women’s clothing for the same social status. While I have fewer options, my clothes will probably fit better than a woman’s without tailoring.
- The grooming regimen expected of me is relatively cheap and consumes little time.
- If I buy a new car, chances are I’ll be offered a better price than a woman buying the same car. The same goes for other expensive merchandise.
- If I’m not conventionally attractive, the disadvantages are relatively small and easy to ignore.
- I can be loud with no fear of being called a shrew. I can be aggressive with no fear of being called a bitch.
- I can ask for legal protection from violence that happens mostly to men without being seen as a selfish special interest, since that kind of violence is called “crime” and is a general social concern. (Violence that happens mostly to women is usually called “domestic violence” or “acquaintance rape,” and is seen as a special interest issue.)
- I can be confident that the ordinary language of day-to-day existence will always include my sex. “All men are created equal,” mailman, chairman, freshman, he.
- My ability to make important decisions and my capability in general will never be questioned depending on what time of the month it is.
- I will never be expected to change my name upon marriage or questioned if I don’t change my name.
- The decision to hire me will not be based on assumptions about whether or not I might choose to have a family sometime soon.
- Every major religion in the world is led primarily by people of my own sex. Even God, in most major religions, is pictured as male.
- Most major religions argue that I should be the head of my household, while my wife and children should be subservient to me.
- If I have a wife or live-in girlfriend, chances are we’ll divide up household chores so that she does most of the labor, and in particular the most repetitive and unrewarding tasks.
- If I have children with my girlfriend or wife, I can expect her to do most of the basic childcare such as changing diapers and feeding.
- If I have children with my wife or girlfriend, and it turns out that one of us needs to make career sacrifices to raise the kids, chances are we’ll both assume the career sacrificed should be hers.
- Assuming I am heterosexual, magazines, billboards, television, movies, pornography, and virtually all of media is filled with images of scantily-clad women intended to appeal to me sexually. Such images of men exist, but are rarer.
- In general, I am under much less pressure to be thin than my female counterparts are. If I am over-weight, I probably suffer fewer social and economic consequences for being fat than over-weight women do.
- If I am heterosexual, it’s incredibly unlikely that I’ll ever be beaten up by a spouse or lover.
- Complete strangers generally do not walk up to me on the street and tell me to “smile.”
- Sexual harassment on the street virtually never happens to me. I do not need to plot my movements through public space in order to avoid being sexually harassed, or to mitigate sexual harassment.
- On average, I am not interrupted by women as often as women are interrupted by men.
- On average, I will have the privilege of not knowing about my male privilege.
And lastly, I am taken as a more credible feminist than my female peers, despite the fact that the feminist movement is not liberating to my sex.
This is male privilege.
THIS. THIS IS HOW YOU BE A MALE FEMINIST.
Also if we men have more than a passing knowledge on a subject we are talking about we are looked upon as experts even if there are females present that have far superior knowledge than ours,
People will come to us automatically for advice to do with anything technical, financial etc.
If a man cries, he is seen as being “in touch” with his emotions and generally applauded, if a woman is in tears more often than not they are seen as attention seekers and emotionally unstable.
A man stands up and shouts out to the world that a woman’s body is her own and no one has the right to tell her what to do with it, he is called a hero etc. A woman does the self same thing and is largely ignored or shamed by certain sections of society.
These are further examples of Male Privilege and why we need feminism.

Literature Meme:2/3 Genres
- Utopian/Dystopian society
The utopia and its offshoot, the dystopia, are genres of literature that explore social and political structures. Utopian fiction is the creation of an ideal society, or utopia, as the setting for a novel. Dystopian fiction is the opposite: creation of an utterly horrible or degraded society, or dystopia. Many novels combine both, often as a metaphor for the different directions humanity can take in its choices, ending up with one of two possible futures. Both utopias and dystopias are commonly found in science fiction and other speculative fiction genres, and arguably are by definition a type of speculative fiction.
The word utopia was first used in direct context by Sir Thomas More in his 1516 work Utopia. The word utopia resembles both the Greek words “no place”, “outopos”, and “good place”, “eutopos”.
Dystopia is defined as a society characterized by a focus on mass poverty, squalor, suffering, or oppression. Most authors of dystopian fiction explore at least one reason why things are that way, often as an analogy for similar issues in the real world. Dystopias usually extrapolate elements of contemporary society and are read by many as political warnings. Many purported utopias reveal a dystopian character by suppressing justice, freedom and happiness.
The Chamber of Secrets was thought to be just a legend. The story says Salazar Slytherin built the chamber to house a monster capable of purging the school of all those he felt were unworthy of studying magic. However the school had been searched numerous times since the Middle Ages but no chamber was ever found. It wasn’t until the 20th century the existence of the chamber became unquestionable, when several students were petrified and one died as a result of its opening. The entrance turned out to be located in the second floor girls’ bathroom through a hidden passage behind a sink with an engraved snake tap. Only an heir of Slytherin or speaking parseltongue will reveal the entrance. Inside is a labyrinth of tunnels and a large statue of Salazar, yet only his head is now visible as the chamber was flooded prior to its last opening. The monster, a basilisk, was found living within the chamber but was killed in 1993.

#just think about the fact that each one of those giant broken robots #represents a pair of dead jaeger pilots #who died trapped in each other’s heads #feeling each other’s terror pain and sense of failure at holding off the kaiju (via analogized)
#and if you think about it #that makes stacker pentecost and chuck hansen at the bottom of the ocean #a continuation of a jaeger pilot tradition #of holding the line no matter what #of self sacrifice #and probably also the realisation of both stacker pentecost and herc hansen’s worst nightmares #stacker leaving his daughter in a jaeger and not knowing if she’ll come out safely #and herc seeing his son pull the self destruct #just like he always pictured himself doing one day #where would you rather die: here or in a jaeger #tell me that for the first gen pilots #the answer could be anything else other than in a jaeger (tags via analogized)
