Teacher:

Reading a book is better than sex.

[Class titters]

Teacher:

It’s like a 10-hour orgasm!

[Laughter increases]

Girl pipes up:

Yeah, and with a book I actually get to finish!

[Boys’ laughter dies off almost instantly as the girls hoot]

"People are perfectly happy to see women as sex objects, but the actual biologic of our bodies is apparently gross and unmentionable."
- Our Bodies, Ourselves.

The best part? If the string weren’t visible, this photo could be used in any number of advertisements without complaint. The string is a reminder that we aren’t looking at a mannequin or sex doll. It also shows straight male viewers that the model is not currently sexually available to them, which is their greatest fear.Ugh.

People with vaginas can safely have sex while menstruating….. But I digress.

We can, and I do, but not while a tampon is occupying the space. I should have clarified further.

And here they are:
Thermoception:  Ability to sense heat and cold. Thermoceptors in the brain are used for monitoring internal body temperature.
Proprioception: The sense of where your body parts are located relevant to each other. 
Chronoception: Sense of the passing of time. Your body has an internal clock. 
Equilibrioception:  The sense that allows you to keep your balance and sense body movement in terms of acceleration and directional changes. 
Magentoception:  This is the ability to detect magnetic fields. Unlike most birds, humans do not have a strong magentoception, however, experiments have demonstrated that we do tend to have some sense of magnetic fields. 
Tension Sensors:  These are found in such places as your muscles and allow the brain the ability to monitor muscle tension.
Nociception:  In a word, pain.  This was once thought to simply be the result of overloading other senses, such as “touch”, but it has it’s own unique sensory system.  There are three distinct types of pain receptors: cutaneous (skin), somatic (bones and joints), and visceral (body organs).

Assassin's Creed Unity:

*no playable female Assassins*

Male gamers:

This is just fine, so shut up! What's important isn't the character's gender, it's the story they are in! Who cares about the characters' genders? Stop trying to ruin other people's fun!

Hyrule Warriors:

*10 playable characters, 8 of them are women*

Male gamers:

WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?!?! There are too many girls in this game! What about us, the male fans? Why the female fans have more options? Women aren't interesting, if you don't include more men in the game then the story will become boring!

Reading this now.  My therapist recommended it & it is a very helpful, quick read.  It helps with those of us who have issues with parental guilt & manipulation.  It’s purpose is to help you regain your self worth & develop new ways to interact.

One of the best books I’ve ever read. It literally changed my life.
Anyone who thinks they may have been abused in any way by a parent or caregiver should read this book. 

please share.

I wish there were a way to download this book. I want it, but I don’t want my parents to find it. :/

Passing this along for people who need it!

That dropbox link doesn’t work for me, but this one does:

Not sure I agree with everything in the book, but it might be useful to some people.  (I’m still reading it.  I’m not huge into some of the therapy stuff, but it makes some good points, too.)
One warning, by the way:  The book sometimes seems to make it sound like parents with chronic illnesses or mental illnesses are somehow abandoning their children or “forcing their children to be adults/caretakers” just by being sick.  So… if you’re disabled, be aware of that before reading.  I’ve heard that line a lot before, I didn’t know it probably was popularized in this book.

“People who dismiss the unemployed and dependent as ‘parasites’ fail to understand economics and parasitism. A successful parasite is one that is not recognized by its host, one that can make its host work for it without appearing as a burden. Such is the ruling class in a capitalist society.”
