so you’re telling me there’s an alien who regenerates into a completely random form, that he cannot control or determine himself, and who understandably could take millions of different appearances, but who all 13 times just turned into a different skinny white guy
I love when you find out somebody’s personality secret… like the secret reason why they act the way that they do. for example, Thomas is aggressive towards women to overcompensate for his tiny penis and balloon fetish. Bridget is overly-social because she is actually being piloted by a small brain slug. Gregor is shy because he is a figment of your imagination. I love Psychology.
“People hate that I flip two cigarettes
Upside down in each pack
But I hate that people notice
When you gain three pounds,
But not when you buy a new hat.
I’ve been told that the way I sleep
With one leg draped over
The person lying next to me
But I think it’s annoying
When people tell me
I look pretty,
But only when I paint my face.
I’ve heard that old men
Like to touch the girls who work late at bars,
But I want to know
Why they never kiss the women they married
fourty-two years ago.
I’ve noticed that mothers teach their daughters
That it’s rude to refuse a hug
From an uncle they’ve met three times,
But forget to teach them
That they aren’t obliged to kiss
The boy who paid for dinner.”—(via olivia-ross)
“Ok so our ideal Vampire Weekend. We get a black convertible. um, cruise down Melrose, and pick up two or three goth chicks. Then you got the goth chicks in the car, and you drive out to a goth club. And you hang out at the goth club and you drink mojitos, and bloody marys, and beer. And then after that you get a designated driver to drive you and the goth chicks to the beach and it’s still night time at that point. You have a bonfire, and you hang out, and you sing songs. Next morning get breakfast, sleep in, do it all again Saturday night. Sunday, take it a little easier. With the goth chicks. Sunday take it easy with the goth chicks maybe lay off the booze cause you’re a little hung over, and buy cherry cokes for everybody. And then you drink cherry cokes with the goth chicks, drop them off at their mom’s house, return the car, and guess what it’s Monday time for work but uh. You had a great weekend, you don’t have the Monday blues, you had a Vampire Weekend, ok?”—Ezra Koenig (via harry2016)
date a boy who’s a wolf. not figuratively a wolf literally date a fucking wolf. wolves are strong and cute and have powerful jaws for crushing the bones of men who harass you on the street. wolves are better than men in every respect. have you ever seen a man kill an elk with his teeth, howl at the moon, run at speeds of 35 mph. wolves CANNOT call you slurs
1. HORMONES MAKE TEAR PRODUCTION HARDER FOR MEN, EASIER FOR WOMEN.
Think men don’t cry as often because they’re “strong” or lack emotion? Well, you can’t cry if you don’t have the tears to do it. Before puberty, girls and boys cry in equal amounts, and for pretty much the exact same reasons. When puberty hits and we get our hormones on (testosterone for the fellas and prolactin for ladies), our ability to PRODUCE tears changes. Testosterone may inhibit tear production in men, while prolactin actually makes crying easier (and encourages it) for women. Though the experience of feeling emotion may be exactly the same between the sexes, men’s bodies are simply less likely to produce tears as a response (while women’s bodies may produce them automatically, especially in response to stress). This hormonal difference also means that in situations where men & women BEGIN to cry, men may be able to shut down the reflex more easily, whereas women may have a much harder time holding them back. Women with especially high prolactin levels (preggers, post-preggers, hormonally imbalance like me, etc) may find they can cry almost indefinitely when emotions run high. I call it “leaking”, lol. In general, women are QUEENS of the “good, long cry”. Women may produce more tears than normal when depressed/anxious because of higher levels of tear producing stress hormone.
For men trying to understand a female cry response, it’s kind of like a boner for your eyeballs: sometimes it happens for no reason and you can’t shut it off right away EVEN when you desperately wanna. That’s not to say women are emotionally irrational or somehow unable to function when crying: we just have a physical response to emotion that makes us more likely to express it with tears. Tears (or lack of tears) are also NOT an indicator of depth of feeling or lack of emotion: a man can be devastated and simply be unable to produce tears (or will produce just a few). A woman can be mildly upset or stressed and cry whole heartedly.
Speaking as a transman who has started testosterone, this is absolutely true. I would start crying much more easily pre-t and now it’s damnably hard to start, especially in situations where I just want a good cry like I used to.
My cousin asked why I wasn’t eating turkey and I said I’m just not a big fan of turkey and he asked “what’re you, gay?” and I was like “well yeah but I don’t think that’s why I don’t like turkey” and that’s how I came out to my cousin, happy thanksgiving
