A male friend of mine that develops AAA games told me, “When a woman criticizes me, it goes to a different part of my brain than when a man on my team does. I get defensive really quickly. I’m trying to get better about it.” I don’t think his is a unique experience.

We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.

Yeah, it goes to the “DISMISS ANYTHING WOMEN SAY” part of his brain, while he thinks about doing violence towards her. Men=shit.

Émilie Régnier: Mali Passport

via foam: ‘I am really driven by the idea of showing a West African society that is growing,’ says Régnier. That means ignoring the easy and the rote: pictures of elites quaffing champagne, or images cataloguing the atrocities of war. Witnessing with a camera takes many forms. For Régnier, photographic truth is located in the bodily presence of young West Africans proudly negotiating their future, a diverse future of many possibilities.’

About:

'ow do?

I'm Alice and I'm 19. Londoner born and raised, studying and living between Coventry and Leamington, destined for Bristol and the world.

I write; stories, screenplay and a little bit of poetry. This is what I want to make a career out of and its scary. Currently I'm worldbuilding, so watch this space. If I were you I'd read 'The Five People you Meet in Heaven', 'Metamorphosis', 'Kokoro', 'A Scanner Darkly', 'Fight Club' and 'The Catcher in the Rye'. I'd also watch Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Buffy, OITNB, The Royal Tenenbaums and Peep Show.

I model. Please contact me if you like my portfolio and wish to work with me.

Otherwise, I get angry and protest about things, like feminism. I'm broadly socialist because I'm too realistic to be an anarchist. I'm also queer, and I have the best man ever, and lots of beautiful, beautiful friends. Currently I am catless but this shall not last for long, even if I have to train myself to not be allergy-y around them.

Anyway, here is my personal tag.
