I saw once a lot of complains about the lack of poc villians and honestly, the only thing I could think about was if there was a poc villian nowdays all the sjws will hit the roof screamign about look at the white people demonizing poc

To be fair though, sometimes when they’re made the villain they’re written as a bunch of negative stererotypes (“Black Villain” in that American Dad episode that was a Bond parody springs to mind)

But if the character is well written (Fish Mooney from Gotham hot dayum) and the sjws still go with the “they’re demonizing black people!” then it’s like “Do you even WATCH the damn thing?”

Researchers found that overweight people repeatedly placed in a stressful situation exhibited increasing amounts of interleukin-6, a protein that promotes inflammation in the body, in their saliva. Normal weight people did not exhibit this escalation in interleukin-6 levels when exposed to repeated stress.

The inflammation caused by interleukin-6 has been associated with a number of conditions for which obesity itself creates an increased risk, including hardening of the arteries, type 2 diabetes, cancer and fatty liver disease, the researchers said.

Just dropping in to let you all know that I’m not dead, just extremely exhausted. Work is basically taking all of my spoons and I just don’t have the energy to deal with anything.

Granted, I am slightly active on the Egyptian gods blog, as well as khaleesipersephone, but that’s not ignoring this blog as much as it is that I’m pretty exclusively mobile and those are attached to my main account, so it’s less work to post there.

Unfortunately, with the retail holiday season starting, this is probably going to be a regular occurrence, my schedule is going to be really erratic and I’m working with severely limited spoons already, so they’re pretty much all dedicated to work. I’ll try to hop on over here at least once a week, and if you want to get in touch, khaleesipersephone or egyptiangodsforsocialjustice (ask for Nephthys).

My Thoughts on Emma Watson’s HeForShe Campaign

This blog has been getting a lot of asks regarding opinions on the campaign. Here are mine:

Is this campaign a perfect solution? No. Hell, its not even above average. But its an impressive step forward. 

Why? Because it acknowledges men’s issues. Specifically. It doesn’t really do so in an attempt to derail that argument (“well I know men have issues too, but let me move on with my point…”), but rather it actually lists a very select few. It doesn’t really call for action on those issues, but it acknowledges  their existence, which is lightyears ahead of everything else out there.

I mean, look at it this way. We’ve all seen celebrities reject feminism before. And thats well and good, right? But none of them ever really give much of a reason, beyond the “We’re already equal” argument. They don’t touch even a single one of the many ways feminism has hurt (intentionally or not) others (yes mainly men).  Occasionally they do, but often thats not the case. If they were to bring up mens issues, nobody would take them seriously. We all know that. Nobody touches these issues for a reason. Everyone has seen shitty feminists’ news or youtube comments that “logically” explain why its common sense that men can’t be raped, or why anyone with half a brain knows that domestic violence is exclusively a women’s issue. But the fact is these are predominate views in our society, which is why they are often preached and rarely challenged.

So, even though its not good enough, the fact that Emma Watson was willing to touch mens issues specifically in a way that didn’t serve to derail arguments is huge. No, its not enough, and yes, the HeForShe campaign is far from perfect, but several aspects of it are a huge step in the right direction.

Baby steps. Nothing is going to change overnight, but this is definitely something new.

If you’re grocery shopping and they’re understaffed, not every register will have both a cashier and a bagger.  If you don’t have a bagger, help the cashier out by bagging your groceries.  It takes some of the pressure off of them, helps the line move faster and is just a nice thing to do.

—Dionysus (*obviously I mean if you’re physically able to help.)

They have separate people scan and bag things where you’re from? ~mod luna

In some grocery stores yeah.  Publix, Winn-Dixie, Albertsons (when we had that).  Unless it’s the 10 or less aisle there’s usually a cashier and a bagger, and sometimes the bagger will push your cart to your car for you (which I never take that option). 

But when it’s busy or they’re understaffed then not every aisle will have a bagger and cashier.

—Dionysus

There is only a few places here that have baggers. And those places do not allow you to bag your own stuff at all. You would get told to stop and let staff handle it.

Well from a safety/potential lawsuit standpoint I could see why.  But if every open aisle has long as fuck lines and only one person scanning AND bagging you’d think they’d let you bag your own shit to help speed the line along.

I tend to see a lot of posts implying that it's the man's responsibility to wear a condom and that he's weak if he doesn't like using them, but yet it seems that people forget about female condoms or they write them off for being uncomfortable.

I’m of the view that everyone who’s sexually active, regardless of gender, should have a supply of: condoms (either kind), lubes, spermicides.  This is not only to keep themselves safe, but also stop the excuse of “oh I didn’t bring a condom with me but I’m totally safe/on the pill”
