There was a study done where they got a man to harass a woman in the park
and then they did it the other way around.
Several stopped the man but they let the woman slap and scream
and yank his hair.
They asked a professional who concluded that compared to men,
women aren’t seen as enough to be a threat.

My friend’s principal from three years ago
took his kids and ran
because he kept showing up to work
with bruises put there weekly by his loving wife
and everyone told him to take it like a man.

Last week I listened as a guy laughed off the idea
that a woman could violate him
and I thought of an interview on a news show
where they showed a boy who flinched inwards
every time a girl touched him
because of the exact reason the guy laughed off.

When compared to men,
Women aren’t seen as a threat
so men feel free to take whatever they like.

Women aren’t seen as a threat
so no one takes men seriously
when a woman
breaks them open.

Can I just say that it’s so nice to see something about women abusing men that doesn’t try to say feminism is the root of all evil, and in fact realizes the sexism against women is part of why this shit happens?

Shut the fuck up about Pluto

When we learn new facts, we have to reconsider our systems of categorization. Science adapts to new information—in this case, the increasing number of other Kuiper belt objects we’ve discovered, including ones bigger than Pluto. They’re not new planets, so neither is Pluto. Not to mention the orbital behavior.

It’s still there. It’s still called Pluto. It’s just a Kuiper belt object.

Science adapts to new facts. This Pluto nostalgia isn’t cute and it has an undercurrent of anti-science, anti-intellectual backwardness. Get over the outdated models you learned in first grade and learn something new about the goddamn solar system, because the solar system is exciting and we learn amazing new things about it literally every single day.

The universe doesn’t give a fuck about your grade school nostalgia.
