Tough Guise: Violence, Media & The Crisis in Masculinity

with Ed. M, Ph.D Jackson Katz

Same for mass shootings which are almost entirely done by white males.

If it was done by, literally, ANYONE ELSE of any other race or gender, I can’t even IMAGINE the shit that would be said by people.

I read somewhere, someone had this theory that the reason shootings are mainly committed by white males is because when women or poc feel alienated, depressed, etc, we are trained to keep it to ourselves, whereas white men are raised with a sense of entitlement that allows them to make their own problems everyone’s problem.

I wonder if it is true for shooting or for road rage or both or neither.

the bolded!

This is a really good documentary.

**URGENT: $1100 NEEDED TOMORROW FRIDAY 4/4 FOR HOUSING! DISABLED And HOMELESS!**New THANK YOU REWARDS!**

I have been homeless 8 months. With a severe disability needing complex care. When I do stay at my parents’, I’m assaulted and injured.

Above is the apartment where Tumblr helped me qualify. It’s safe for my disability and finally available! HOWEVER:

I MUST $1100 BY 9PM FRIDAY 4/4 TO SIGN THE LEASE! It’s security deposit and 1st month rent- not covered by my rent subsidy! Otherwise I LOSE THE ONLY APARTMENT TO COME UP IN OVER A YEAR! I also LOSE MY RENT SUBSIDY, MY ONLY MEANS OF HOUSING! They’re HOLDING THE LAST FUNDING SLOT for me, but can’t after this.

I know it seems impossible, so here is a sort of FAQ with more detail! And so, sadly, I must ask:

PLEASE HELP ME over this LAST OBSTACLE to SAFETY!

~So far people have donated $180! Thank you! 1 Day Left for the rest!~

*DONATE: I set up PayPal as email LARTPOURLARTNOW@GMAIL.COM (select “send money to a friend” to safe the fee in the US).

*SHARE: Please Help Spread the Word! Even without donating, this is the biggest help! The more who see it in time, the more who can help!

*THANK YOU INCENTIVES: see the updated full list here! Great new stuff is being added! Let me know if you’d like to offer something!

*MORE INFO AND PROOF: Here is that FAQ again! Here are details about my medical and overall condition. Here’s the post from when I qualified.

I hate asking this, truly. But I know that if anyone can do it, it’s the dedicated and good people here on Tumblr!

PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD, DONATE IF YOU CAN, and HELP ME BE SAFE AT LAST!

Yesterday, when asked, I told Commissioners and Executive Directors of City Agencies all you’ve done. They were amazed! One cried. They all said: You are inspiring!

THANK YOU ALL!!

[Yes, that’s me in that photo! I don’t have my cane because I’m secure against that radiator.]

SIGNAL BOOST

Folks, PLEASE help spread the word at least

Please, she only has until tomorrow <333

I showed this post to my boyfriend and he tried to take his shirt off like a girl and 

uh

yeah

Out of the 82k notes my post got this is by far the best comment holy shit thank u for being u

So i tried it both ways and uh

i mean how do you do the first one without pulling out all your hair?

this made me laugh really hard….

and it made me realize that girls and boys pull their shirt off differently. /amazed

but seriously I think girls just do the cross arm thing because of HAIR like demonstrated 

So one year, one URL change, and a hair cut later, I decide to try again… FOR SCIENCE! 

Its not science unless you write it down so 

First method:

Well done, i guess…

Second:

I fucked up

Girls… how?

I DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW WE CAN HAVE SUCH DIFFERENT WAYS OF TAKING OFF SHIRTS AND SO MUCH DIFFICULTY DOING IT THE OTHER WAY

Guide to Self-Studying Japanese
A large proportion of Japanese learners self-study. Finding places to learn Japanese in a classroom environment can be difficult and expensive. Here’s a guide on how you can learn Japanese for free and from the comfort of your sofa.

When learning Japanese, the most important step is to learn Hiragana and Katakana, the writing alphabets of Japanese.
The best way I’ve found to do that is to make flashcards. Make sure you practice writing as well as recognizing them, this will not only be a great skill to have but will also reinforce the shapes in your mind.
Resources:
[Hiragana 42], the best guide I’ve found to learn the Hiragana (in a day!)[Hiranana and Katakana Quiz Site][Kana Invaders Game][Anki] An amazing program that will make sure you never forget any Vocabulary….

The next step is to start learning vocabulary. Where can you find what to learn? Use a site like Memrise to find word lists (for example, there is a word list for all the vocabulary in starter textbooks like Genki), and use the amazing interface to learn them and keep them in your long term memory.
Resources:
[Memrise] as mentioned above to find and learn vocabulary lists.[Most Common Words List][Anki] An amazing program that will make sure you never forget any Kanji….

While encountering vocabulary, you’re likely to be coming across super-complicated-looking Kanji. You can learn Kanji through Memrise as above, but there are some other websites that may be of interest.
Resources:
[Kanji Damage] A great site where you can learn Kanji through Mnemonics.[WaniKani] by the same people ho make TextFugu (below) can help you learn Kanji from scratch.[Anki] An amazing program that will make sure you never forget any Kanji….

The next step is to apply that new vocabulary to grammar points and start making sentences.
If you can’t get your hands on textbooks like Genki, don’t fear! There are a lot of great online grammar resources.
Resources:
[TextFugu] a highly rated ‘online textbook’ which will guide you right from the beginning of learning Japanese.[Guide to Japanese] another online textbook with a lot of grammar points and excellent explanations.

The Fun Parts: Using Japanese Online Media
So you probably have learnt Japanese because you have some interest in Japanese media. Time to start using it to your learning advantage!
Aside from the obvious watching Anime, J-dramas and films, why not try Reading Japanese News? Watching Japanese TV? Just make sure you are making these activities productive - note down new vocabulary, add them to Anki, and keep learning! It’s much easier to learn things you’re interested in. Try translating Japanese songs, etc.

The most important but difficult part of self-studying Japanese is getting your own compositions checked. Utilize all that grammar and vocabulary and write a short piece, it could be a diary entry or a short essay. Get it recorded for you by a native on RhinoSpike, and checked for grammar and consistencies on Lang-8.These sites also give you the chance to connect with Japanese natives, and perhaps start up some language exchanges!

I genuinely consider twitch!Trainer Red as its own character who happens to be a human Spiritomb trying to listen to commands from tens of thousands of voices simultaneously. And a lot of those voices happen to belong to spirits of the past that were part of a cult worshipping the Pokemon Omanyte that is now the Helix Fossil in their possession.
