rodney mckay fans are so interesting i want to study them like a scientist
because they aren't fans of the rodney mckay we see in canon is the thing.
they are in love with this version of him everyone seems to have perfect knowledge of where he's this gay little nerd man who respects women and isn't a complete asshole (derogatory)
and they're somehow able to watch the show without constantly being brought crashing back to the horrible reality of how he's depicted in canon
Cottage Industry in particular was and is a common pattern in agarian societies and it's one of those things that in retropect seems blindingly obvious but isn't quite a matchup for the vague pictures derived from generalities. If there are no factories producing goods en masse in relative bulk, someone still has to produce them. 'Someone' ending up being women and children, in Europe, and different mixtures of all of these in other societies across the world. In some Indigenous societies almost all of this kind of work was done by women while men had all the fun in life and relatively little to no actual labor (and the thought of having to do what of it white men did was reacted to by them as slavery and drudgery, a lesson in the nuances of how cultural imperialism tends to unfold in practice. It also played into a European view of Indigenous men as lazy good for nothings who left women to do men's work, where Indigenous men thought European mean were womanish in everything but their guns).
For women, industrialism is almost always at minimum a short-term loss as the productive role and a great deal of what women in agrarian societies actually do, at least at the levels beneath nobles/elites, is swept away as if it never was.

@enchantngs (I just made this for you! I hope you like it!)
There I was, minding my own business in the grocery store checkout line, where I was waiting to purchase eggs and some cupcake liners. An employee wiped a station down and beckoned me over. I thanked them for cleaning the area, and they gave me a knowing glance and responded with, “Oh, you know how us women are, always wanting things to be clean!”
I cringed so hard at the phrase “us women” — not even because I’m enby and don’t use that word in reference to myself (which this person doesn’t know about me), but because of the insinuation that women are inherently obsessive about cleaning, and men are slobs that don’t care about germs.
chickens are like so wronged in alot of furry media its weird like why do you have to do them like that
german friends to me: haha you wear house slippers, that’s so typically german
me: *thinking about how other cultures also wear house slippers and it’s not just a german thing*
dom with a thick southern accent calling me "hun" or "darling" or "sweetheart" as he breeds me, murmuring praises in my ear for taking his cock so well, telling me how he's gonna make me huge and heavy with his kids

when advertising algorithms see people as unique individuals but film creators still stereotype groups of people, it makes you wonder if the world would be a better place if robots take over
I feel like we became so American centric that now other countries have started thinking they don't have any racism problem, if you point it out they will immediately get defensive and say things like "atleast we are not USA"
Which just seems to me like they are saying "be grateful that atleast we are not like USA and will try to treat you as a human"
Imo admitting you have a racism problem is way better than pretending there is no racism, it might boost your ego but facts remain facts

I’m A Spinster! And I’m Not Just Some Regular Word!
I’m a spinster! Please, if you can skip making those faces in front of me! It’s rude if you must know! Well, being a spinster is far worse than being rude. In other words, everything is better than being a spinster! I know exactly what goes through your mind and what images your conditioned imagination creates for you. I even know what emotions make you suddenly quiver. Desperate, neurotic, a…

My mom had an encounter with a muslim guy and I had a revelation. Idk where else to put this but i just wanna voice out my thoughts LOL. My mom's job was to sell my step dad's products online and so in order to ship the orders to the customer we use grab drivers. My mom got a grab driver and was having a hard time pronouncing his name as it obviously was foreign. She went out of the house to meet him and ask him about his name as she was handing the products and he said "Ah my ny name is ____ Hassam po ma'am." "Im a muslim" then abrutly said "Oh but I'm a kind muslim don't worry." and I was just sad that even if my mom wasn't racist, for fear of prejudice he really had to indicate that he was a kind muslim. and you know those tags whether or not a muslim is nice or "bad" they shouldn't exist because not all muslims are the damn same. What hurt me more was the fact that he said "don't worry" don't worry???? It's so sad that this muslim guy JUST DOING HIS JOB has to reassure everyone he isnt some terrorist because of the stereotypes society has structured. I'm beyond speechless. Honestly I'm sorry for all the minorities or people who are subjected to racism had to reassure others so many times that they mean no harm.
They're constantly living their lives walking on eggshells,,,
my fave genre of charles picture is the kind where it’s obvious what a big pointy french nose he has
