A study on masculinity and aggression from the University of South Florida found that innocuous – yet feminine – tasks could produce profound anxiety in men. As part of the study, a group of men were asked to perform a stereotypically feminine act – braiding hair in this case - while a control group braided rope. Following the act, the men were given the option to either solve a puzzle or punch a heavy bag. Not surprisingly, the men who performed the task that threatened their masculinity were far more likely to punch the bag; again, violence serving as a way to reestablish their masculine identity. A follow-up had both groups punch the bag after braiding either hair or rope; the men who braided the hair punched the bag much harder. A third experiment, all the participants braided hair, but were split into two groups: those who got to punch the bag afterwards and those who didn’t. The men who were prevented from punching the bag started to show acute signs of anxiety and distress from not being able to reconfirm their masculinity.

Brazilian police clash with indigenous groups protesting World Cup.

This is important.

The only kind of thing I’ll be posting about the World Cup

We will not see this on the main stream news.

Oh hey, let’s keep spreading this because apparently soccer is more important than the rights of poor and indigenous Brazilians.

(Like, there’s nothing wrong with liking soccer but there is EVERYTHING wrong with an organization that will literally fucking murder little children for a soccer event, and the fact that no one in the mainstream is talking about indigenous protesters being assaulted and favelas being cleared with the use of deadly force in order to make room for a stadium is sickening.)

judging anyone watching the WC rn, idc if you like ~soccer~ this shit is DISGUSTING. 

human beings »»»»»»»»» kicking a stupid ball ffs

FIFA is bad and you should feel bad if you support their organization ONE IOTA. please remove yourself from my blog & punch yourself in the face until you’re unconcious.

Here’s a friendly reminder:

-You cannot be sexist toward men. Sexism is based on a system of oppression. You CAN be discriminatory, rude, inconsiderate, and/or prejudiced against men but you CANNOT be sexist toward them.

-You cannot be racist towards white people. Racism is based on a system of oppression. You CAN be discriminatory, rude, inconsiderate, and/or prejudiced against white people but you CANNOT be racist toward them.

This is not difficult.

This is a comic about my own emotions, made to release my own emotions, and to cope with my own emotions.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate this. And how JUST because someone has friends, or a boyfriend or ANYTHING.. it doesn’t fucking mean they should be happy. I’ve had so many people tell me to be happy because I have nothing to be depressed about. It’s the most stupid thing I’ve heard in my life.

This is so great. Anons do this so much.

This is literally so fucking relevant to me it HURTS.
