colloquials:

"He sees what kind of man he wants to be, too.  He wants to be strong, and brave, and a hero, but not the kind that rides around on a white horse.  He wants to be Samwise Gamgee.  It’s hard, though, to reconcile the desire to be a humble gardener, when you have a humble gardener.  Or, actually, a lawn crew.  It’s also hard to be simple when you’re kind of thinky.  But he’s got the worrying down pat and the being small and dark and solid (maybe a little too solid he admits—his mom says he’s just padding for a growth spurt, though).  If he’s honest, part of the appeal is also having someone tell him what to do.  And right now, he imagines what Mr. Frodo would tell him to do, girds his loins and makes the decision to go about the dangerous business of stepping out his door.”

Baby!Blainers reading Lord of the Rings. Fanart for my favourite fic that ever was in existence. Soothing little half hour sketch. Sigh, calming colour palette is calming.

I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -

Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.

Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.

If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.

And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.

Testosterone levels are also higher (which is why you get more our of your workout when you do so during your period) so lol we handle assholes like you all the time and y’all can’t handle us and a little blood.

I remember talking to my mother and seeing Snow White and wondering if there’d ever be Chocolate Brown or something like that. But my parents were very good at making sure I had dolls that looked like me, and books with brown children in them, and birthday cards with brown children on them. They were very aware. When you discount a child from fantasy, it’s a very strong statement. You think, Wow, somebody made an entire movie with elves, and trees that talk, and things that fly, and there was no room for me.
