As a man I can only imagine people being attracted to me if I actually imagine myself as a woman.
I’ve never been particularly bullied or told that I’m ugly or unattractive, but I really just can’t imagine anyone being attracted to my male body. Let me clarify by saying that I’m perfectly comfortable being a man, and I know that this doesn’t happen to everyone, but… Really, after hearing so many people complaining about being made objects of desire, it’s kind of sad for me to feel that I won’t ever be one. Logically I know it’s not necessarily true, but that is my emotional reaction the the thought. To me, and I’m really just guessing, I think it may be based upon never really seeing men complimented for their appearance unless they have rock-solid abs and a perfect face, which I simply don’t possess.
Don’t bother with the ‘crycry fedoraneckbeardman coz no girls want to sleep with you’ bullcrap, because you all know that I’m just a human, like all of you, that wants to feel attractive and ‘want-able’.
I wholeheartedly agree. I’ve had severe insecurity and body-image issues during my younger days due to the fact that no girl wanted me, where it had prompted me to workout and diet. Now that I’ve got a relatively good body, a fair set of muscles and a six-pack, I tend to get a bit more girl attention and I honestly love it. I know sexual objectification may not be the most positive gesture towards women but it’s sure as hell a lot better than feeling undesired and ignored.
Do men really feel this way?
When I was a kid I thought I might be trans because of stuff like this. Ultimately I decided I didn’t much care and got over it, but yeah I definitely see where this guy’s coming from. It probably helps that I tend for strange fashions and tend to get random compliments on my outfits and hair from people as well.
this is something I’ve felt as well. not feeling attractive cause you don’t possess a body that you feel women would go for is a bit disheartening. just like envy, the comment above me, i sorta ignore it but i do think about it at times.
Same story as above, really. I can look at myself in the mirror and go “hey, I actually look kinda good.” But then I look at my body and ask myself if it’s “good enough.” I like to tell myself that there’s someone out there who will like me for who I am, I see it everywhere else, but I’m on that precipice where it’s “Alright.” I’m right there where I’m easily overlookable, and it really is disheartening.
Add on top of that the fact that I’ve only really had one girlfriend, that that didn’t last too terribly long, and it just adds to that kind of depression I get even more. It feels like it confirms the fact. I’m smart enough that it doesn’t matter, shouldn’t matter, and that I’m just as good as anyone else out there, but when you’re kindness and compassion (in before “ermergerd fedorablaaahhh!”) are, quite honestly, your best traits, it’s REALLY hard to show those off, and harder still to make others believe it, or so it feels.
Again, like the other guys, I can mostly ignore it. It’s not terribly hard, I know who I am and what I do and I’m fine with it, but every once in a while it gets really disheartening.
Here are some scientific facts about blood loss for all you
psychopathswriters out there.
I would like to know what is in those bottles.
It’s Siracha!!!! Siracha is life!
That’s actually highly useful.
May as well put this here, always good to know, even in cartooning (especially if you have one of them “serious” comics and stuff)
Dad: Why do you think they do that?
Girl: Because the companies who make these try to trick the girls into buying the pink stuff instead of stuff boys want to buy. [x]
that awkward moment when a child understands the harm of forcing gender roles better than most grown male politicians.
I’m surprised that I haven’t reblogged this, to be honest.
I love that last gif. She looks so frustrated. Like “Um, hello, obviously girls and boys can like anything why doesn’t anybody get that???”
She does have a point though..
Kids who are smarter than adults though.
I saw this once, way back when I didn’t reblog and wasn’t quite into posting anything… Now, though, it NEEDS to be spread, much further then ever XD
I found this extremely trippy, weird supposedly psychological test, where they ask you to tie together these shapes and give them characteristics.
I just posted a few questions up. As you can see it’s really, really odd and slightly creepy.
At the end of the test they gave you a personality description based on your choices.
the fuck, took this test and its scary accurate like they ask the dumbest questions it makes no sense.
some messages I got. this is actually really crazy
I did this test and got a diagnosis; I was like yeah, yeah, this could be about anybody. Right until the end, then it hit home like a dagger in the back.
If you have photosensitive epilepsy, you shouldn’t go on this site because the entire test is fuzzy, subtly moving, hypnotizing animation.
I…. call Bullshit? I really don’t know. I got some response from the first test saying I see things in black and white. Am fine by myself with a good book or puzzle. All this introverted bullshit. And at first I’m like “okay, scrap that idea” since I LOVE going out and doing things! I have NOT picked up a book since I was 13, and I don’t really like puzzles that much. I LIKE thinking, yes, but creatively. I try to find ways outside of the normal ways of doing things…
But this god damn test. I had to sit here and ask myself “How does the question have anything to do with the pictures shown.” and “Does… Does B even have a picture?” Like, I can understand the first few questions, where it’s like “Which picture gives you the feeling of aggression towards you,” and stuff like that, but… Then the quiz just gets… Strange. Like, it’s almost like it’s saying, as Mitch Hedberg would put it “Ah, You’re a comedian… So Can you act?” To questions that are just kind of “Here’s a picture! Based on this picture, what’s the square root of 144!” The questions don’t make sense with the pictures shown, the pictures don’t give off a FEELING that give an answer to the questions, and as such, I got lost and confused half-way through.
It’s…. A strange thing to try to put into words, really. I mean, in a sense, i was kinda thinking that there was a right and wrong answer, but when you’re asked to answer as C, but are only presented with the options A and B, you kinda start pressing buttons and going “this one… I guess.” Which makes me wonder if there IS a “C” option for some of those questions…
REALLY just wanna take this chance to remind the people who follow me to not kill/trap opossums if they’re in your yard, and do not call animal control! Seriously.
- Opossums are literally 100% BIOLOGICALLY INCAPABLE of carrying rabies. Their body temperature is too cool to incubate it properly.
- Opossums are actually quite gentle and NOCTURNAL, so if they’re roaming, they’ve probably gotten lost, been injured, and are looking for a place to hide.
- Young opossums tend to try to climb into garbage cans when they’re starving. This is because THEY ARE LITERALLY STARVING. Don’t fucking shoot them or hit them with things because you wanna be some fucking macho top-of-the-food-chain cocksucker.
- Mama possums are amazing mothers and if you encounter an “aggressive” opossum, it’s probably because she’s got babies hanging off her nipple and she’s freaking out. They’re clumsy. Sometimes they don’t hear you coming and you catch each other off guard.
- Wanna lure an opossum off of your property? You can set up a box with some greens and cat kibble in it, hide it well, and lure them out that way. They’re actually quite harmless and keep other predators away. they eat lotsa gross stuff.
- Opossum mamas who get hit by cars often still have their helpless babies attached to them. Possums get a bad rep and people say they are “the dumbest animal”, but they are incredible creatures who have been around since the days of fucking dinosaurs so treat them well, okay?
This show is a treasure. It’s too bad that tumblr spends its time bemoaning the brony phenom and making fun of the fanbase and conveniently forgets that the core material is pretty fantastic and worthy of praise.
I keep noticing awesome themes as I watch this show, and it makes me happy.
People who equate liking my little pony with bronies drive me nuts my little pony is great
this season has been so great, they’ve really been pushing disabled characters this season, too! First Scoots and now Dashie!!!
Mod: you have no idea how much this episode hit me! I was diagnosed with a learning disability when I was little. My heart explode when this scene happened!
Okay, this episode also hit me, kinda like the person above me. See, I hadn’t ever been diagnosed with a learning disability, but I’m pretty sure I should have been. I was watching this particular episode, and the point where rainbow dash started dancing in her stool, I just started to laugh, just pure joy.
But, watching again, and again, I realized that was me, sitting in that chair. That’s what I would do in that situation. I could NOT sit still as a kid, and every time I did (to listen to lecture, or whatever), I was so focused on sitting still that I COULD NOT pay attention to what everyone was talking about.
Then, later in the episode, when RBD says she pays attention to EVERYTHING when she’s flying, got me to thinking about how my Mom remedied this (when we were still home-schooled). She told me to do what it was I did, to not sit still, and just do whatever, so long as I payed attention. And it worked. I DID pay attention, while spinning in circles, trying to make it look like the world was spinning, but the ceiling fan was sitting still. I could answer questions that were asked, and I did it all the while NOT sitting still.
This was how I learned… And so heading to school in the 5th grade was hard. I may love Applejack, and she may be my favorite character, but I connect so much with RBD, it’s kinda scary.
