“NO HOMO” i scream at my dog Homo as he shits on the carpet
A picture of the Ritsurin Gardens in Japan that I took got a massive spike in likes and reblogs today for some reason. It’s been up for months, but it’s cool that people seem to like it.
Some of the phrasing in cognitive psychology journal articles just makes me laugh. There’s a great quote in a paper I’m reading at the moment -
"Domain knowledge is one of the key conditions influencing self regulated learning, (study) found that higher prior knowledge predicted better performance, but the question remains as to how this occurs."
Ah psychology, there is some truth to the stereotype that you’re explaining things that should be common sense in technical terms.
I don’t think people realise how hard it is to re-discover the person you were before depression or even try to remember your own personality
and if you’ve had depression since early childhood you don’t even know if you have your own personality
you didn’t have time to be a person before depression
and it’s scary having no idea who you are
I’ve had this experience after overcoming depression and again after coming out of a bad relationship, it’s really shitty. It can be an opportunity to change yourself to be more like you want to be though, both times I used it for that, and those changes are what got me to where I am today.
when girls wear ‘boy clothes’ shes seen as ‘cool’ or ‘hipster’
but as soon as a guy wears ‘girls clothes’ he gets called gay, or fag
if you dont think thats fucked up what is wrong with you?
because society thinks its degrading to be a woman
Whilst it’s true women are given a lower status in western society than men, it’s not as simple as this, and trying to reduce it to this explanation glosses over the deeper issues behind it. Women don’t get disgusted glances and snyde comments from passers by in the same way simply for expressing themselves.
Acting in accordance with your gender roles carries no shame, but once you transgress those roles you’re in for some trouble. Women don’t get the same treatment as men for doing this because there’s been a real push in society for people to accept women dressing and acting how they want, a woman should be able to do anything a man can. There hasn’t been as much focus on doing the same for men and as such society looks at men doing the same thing in a far harsher light. We carry the stigma of transgressing gender roles to a far greater extent.
