    a practical guide to becoming a true pun master

    animeteen:

    1. accept that no pun is actually Good, but that the true nature of a good pun is to be so terrible that it becomes good.
    2. say every pun that occurs to you. i’m so serious about this, sometimes the most well received puns will be ones you considered not saying.
    3. ALWAYS laugh at your own puns, even if nobody else is. (especially if nobody else is.)
    4. know that you are hilarious. puns are a limitless resource and you have taken it as your duty to bring this gift to humanity. you are a hero.

Arizona Professor Offers Extra Credit To Female Students Who Stop Shaving Their Armpits

Professor Breanne Fahs offers female students extra-credit if they “stop shaving their legs and underarms for ten weeks during the semester while keeping a journal to document their experiences.” For Fahs, who teaches women and gender studies, the purpose is to get students thinking critically about societal norms and gender roles.A similar opportunity is available to men in Fahs’ classes who recieve extra credit for shaving all of their hair from the neck down.One student, Stephanie Robinson, described it as a “life-changing experience:"Many of my friends didn’t want to work out next to me or hear about the assignment, and my mother was distraught at the idea that I would be getting married in a white dress with armpit hair. I also noticed the looks on faces of strangers and people around campus who seemed utterly disgusted by my body hair. It definitely made me realize that if you’re not strictly adhering to socially prescribed gender roles, your body becomes a site for contestation and public opinion."

They published a paper about this the first time someone did it, and it showed that non-white young women experienced a lot more pressure from friends and relatives to remove their hair. The authors suggested that because beauty standards are white - long, fine, flowy blonde hair, blue eyes, etc, etc - his body hair non-conformity was more troubling in WOC, as they crossed yet another boundary of femininity. They were also more likely to have darker or thicker body hair, so it would stand out more than on the blonde women, for example. For me that sort of exemplifies why it’s so important to have multiple, intersectional feminisms. Because “let’s not shave our legs!” might be a powerful and important message, but it’s ultimately one of white privilege that sort of ignores the whiteness of these beauty standards in the first place.

What are men supposed to do? Shut off the part of them that makes them human? She knows what she’s doing wearing what she’s wearing by posing like that. She knows the cause and effect with those sultry looks she’s showing. She’s sexually objectifying herself and she’s doing it on purpose so we’ll look. She’s fishing. However men are shammed when they take this bait. We’re pigs for checking her out. It could be an 18 year old or a 21 year old, 25 year old, 35 year old, etc dressed while posing like this.That’s sexism against men because you want us to repress our sexuality while teasing us in the process. 

Today’s repugnant opinion of the day is brought to you by professional whiner and potential rapist “conservativeatheist”.

"You’re making me feel bad for not seeing a 16 yr old girl as a human… Sexism against men!!!" - anti-fem logic

"All men objectify women and are physically incapable of respecting women who don’t obey the modesty police. It’s what makes them human."
- conservativeatheist

"Men can’t tell the difference between a child performing sexuality (i.e., trying to look "like a grown up"/"more adult") and actual adult women performing sexuality. Asking men to please not objectify children is sexism against men, because children are more responsible for adult men’s sexuality than actual adult men are."

Expecting men to be able to control themselves and not be pedophiles is sexism against men. #misandry
