why is there even such a controversy over why girls are doing better in school. why is this an issue. why cant you just accept for once that men are not fucking better than everything. there is actual proof that girls perform better than boys in school in england but men literally can’t handle that and they have to make up like ten million fucking excuses holy shit

"Boys can’t sit still! Boys can’t listen to directions! Boys have to make noise! Boys are kinesthetic learners! The system favors girls! Feminist female teachers who can’t hannndle little boys the way they are created a school system that favors girls!"

Listen up, fuckwads:

Leaving aside the assumption that it is NATURAL for little girls to sit still and do as they’re told, and NATURAL for little boys to fidget and act out, and has nothing to do with socialization, THIS SYSTEM WAS FUCKING CREATED AT A TIME WHEN MORE BOYS THAN GIRLS WERE IN FORMAL EDUCATION, AND FOR LONGER. ‘Sit them in straight lines, make them be quiet and listen and do neat work’ was a system evolved BY MEN to educate BOYS. So if you now find it doesn’t work well, fucking fix it, but don’t DARE pretend that feminism and girly weak teachers did this shit to you.

One thing that is really striking is how the people who go ‘boys are doing worse than girls in school, the system must be changed!’ always, always place the blame on the system itself. 

If it was girls doing worse, people would assume without question that it was because girls were unsuited for academic learning somehow. You’d have droves of people going ‘well, it’s not the system, it’s just girls’. But since it’s boys? No, no, the system which was designed specifically to favour boys must be at fault. Nothing could possibly be wrong with the boys.

"Shoot! Shoot!

The counter protesters in Ferguson have been portrayed in the media as mostly reasonable supporters of law enforcement. They don’t appear to be white supremacists or militia members.
But when you’re shouting “Shoot! Shoot!” in reaction to “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” it hardly matters how you present yourself or whether you have connections to extremist groups. The base id behind that sentiment is just as ugly.

And just as racist. Right-wingers are filth.

so you’re telling me there’s an alien who regenerates into a completely random form, that he cannot control or determine himself, and who understandably could take millions of different appearances, but who all 13 times just turned into a different skinny white guy

And he takes the form, now, of a Roman who looked about as much like a Roman as a cat looks like a frog.

I’m about to cry. My 60 year old mother watched a netflix documentary and only just now found out she’s asexual. I’ve been trying to figure out how to bring up this idea to her for years. I am so glad to hear her, she’s so happy and saying “there really is nothing wrong with me!” I didn’t realize it wore on her like that. God bless the internet.
