You can call me Delta, unless you know me as something else.
I'm always up for asks and conversation, so hit me up if you have any questions or just want to talk.
If I'm following you, I would really appreciate it if you tagged posts depicting blood, gore, and body horror. If there's anything you'd like me to tag, just let me know.
Semi-hiatus through 4/29
In the past three months I have moved halfway across the country
started a new job
lost the place I was living, been rendered essentially homeless, and moved into a hotel
broke up with my boyfriend of almost six years
moved into a different hotel with a friend
had over $1,000 stolen from me by my ex
in two weeks I’m moving into a different hotel
in two months I’m moving to another city, in another state, for a new job and a new roommate
I am so ready for this period of my life to be over and for the next one to begin
If putting someone else’s needs above your own is love
then putting your needs above someone else’s is self-love
and I’m trying to remind myself that there isn’t anything wrong with that
so… I have internet again but no computer, so my tumblr presence will be sparse for a bit
Spend 7 minutes of your life watching this show on gendered marketing
This is brilliant. I specifically buy razors and shaving cream marketed to men because it’s at least 30% cheaper in the US, and yet the quality is way better.
This is really interesting
There was a study done where they got a man to harass a woman in the park
and then they did it the other way around.
Several stopped the man but they let the woman slap and scream
and yank his hair.
They asked a professional who concluded that compared to men,
women aren’t seen as enough to be a threat.
My friend’s principal from three years ago
took his kids and ran
because he kept showing up to work
with bruises put there weekly by his loving wife
and everyone told him to take it like a man.
Last week I listened as a guy laughed off the idea
that a woman could violate him
and I thought of an interview on a news show
where they showed a boy who flinched inwards
every time a girl touched him
because of the exact reason the guy laughed off.
When compared to men,
Women aren’t seen as a threat
so men feel free to take whatever they like.
Women aren’t seen as a threat
so no one takes men seriously
when a woman
breaks them open.

Can I just say that it’s so nice to see something about women abusing men that doesn’t try to say feminism is the root of all evil, and in fact realizes the sexism against women is part of why this shit happens?
I’m glad I’m not the only person who capitalizes the #SCIENCE tag on their posts.
I’m glad I’m not the only person who is childishly excited about these things.
It’s a little thing but it makes a difference to me.
Sometimes I still catch myself trying to force myself to think and feel and want things I don’t, and it’s irritating and frustrating and confusing. Even moreso when I catch myself but keep doing it.
