I'm Reesa. Queer, nonbinary, autistic spectrum, ace, mental health issues, completely messed up (but in a good way), interested in a whole range of things and passionate about some of them. They/them/theirs (although I keep trying to convince people that "or" would make a fantastic pronoun). Let me know if you need things tagged.
17% of cardiac surgeons are women, 17% of tenured professors are women. It just goes on and on. And isn’t that strange that that’s also the percentage of women in crowd scenes in movies? What if we’re actually training people to see that ratio as normal so that when you’re an adult, you don’t notice?
…We just heard a fascinating and disturbing study where they looked at the ratio of men and women in groups. And they found that if there’s 17% women, the men in the group think it’s 50-50. And if there’s 33% women, the men perceive that as there being more women in the room than men.
I bought my friend an elephant for their room.
They said “Thank you.”
I said “Don’t mention it.”
Final for my Time Arts class. Nothing gets you in touch with your own anger quite like listening to this and thinking about all the times you’ve been objectified and belittled.
Retro-style posters that were given out to the cast and crew of the Captain America films. I absolutely love these, and really wish they’d been the official one-sheets. The First Avenger poster is absolutely beautiful.
