Chito and Pocho

Chito says goodbye to his bestfriend Pocho, the seventeen foot half ton crocodile.

Gilberto “Chito” Shedden found Pocho over 20 years wounded and near death. Pocho had been shot in the left eye by a cattle farmer. Chito didn’t have the heart to leave him, so he took him back home and nursed him back to health. A decade of friendship later, someone saw Chito and Pocho swimming together and told the local media.

By the summer of 2000, they had become stars after their first show. Large groups of people would gather to watch these two perform tricks like winking, rolling over and allowing Chito to put his head inside the giants mouth.

Chito and Pocho grew closer and closer with each amazing performance. Not only were the performances amazing, but also the fact that a human and crocodile could become such close friends. People were amazed. It’s always beautiful to see a strange friendship like the one Chito and Pocho had.

A grown man believes this. Really, truly believes this (and called me a creeper and bully for rting this). Just let that sink in. He really truly dwells in some movie-tinged dreamworld where packs of cruel women cackle that nerds are gross, that they should be hurt and shown their place. That all our feigned nerdery and sexism-talk is just a cover for this. 

Think of the world we live in - Where he isn’t the only one who thinks this, not by a long shot. A world where  SJWs are out to steal happiness from nerds. 

Sexism fucking makes this world BIZARRE. 

I see stuff like this about Escher Girls and Feminist Frequency and other things sometimes.  Insistence that what we say our reasons and criticisms are are all a lie, that really this is all about popular girls being mean to geeks, (or sometimes hatred and jealousy of artists/creators) but NOT AT ALL EVER WHAT WE SAY. e_e

And it’s easier this way.  It’s easier because it means they don’t have to pay attention to anything we say.  It’s easier because it means they don’t have to examine anything or wonder why real thinking human beings have issues with stuff they like, or wonder if they’re the ones being exlusionary or bullying.  Instead they just dismiss it all as just background noise to MEAN GIRL BULLYING.  Everything we say is just a distraction, the point is we’re just meany meanies and high school never ends.  It also means they can feel like brave rebels when they lash out at us, threaten us, dox us, etc, because they’re the brave underclass nerds (which girls can’t be because our lives are sunshine, gumdrops, non stop parties, and free meals) fighting against people who exist only to hurt them and have no legitimate concerns at all.

It’s kinda sad. :\

Several studies have shown that portrayals of women enjoying rape and other kinds of sexual violence can lead to increased acceptance of rape myths in both males and females.

One group of college students were shown a pornographic depiction in which a woman was portrayed as sexually aroused by sexual violence, and a second group was exposed to control materials.

Subsequently, all subjects were shown a second rape portrayal.

The students who had been exposed to the pornographic depiction of rape were significantly more likely than the students in the control group:

(1) to perceive the second rape victim as suffering less trauma; (2) to believe that she actually enjoyed it; and (3) to believe that women in general enjoy rape and forced sexual acts.

why is nobody talking about the fact that there is an actual heart on a piece of paper

it’s true love, you wouldn’t understand

I thought we agreed to never be creative again.

Be more terrifying if the heart on the paper was still beating
*I love you till the last beat of my heart*
