True gender equality is actually perceived as inequality. A group that is made up of 50% women is perceived as being mostly women. A situation that is perfectly equal between men and women is perceived as being biased in favor of women.
And if you don’t believe me, you’ve never been a married woman who kept her family name. I have had students hold that up as proof of my “sexism.”
My own brother told me that he could never marry a woman who kept her name because “everyone would know who ruled that relationship.” Perfect equality – my husband keeps his name and I keep mine – is held as a statement of superiority on my part.

Also in a mixed-gender group, when women talk 25% of the time or less, it’s seen as being equally balanced. If women talk between 25% and 50% of the time, they are seen as “dominating the conversation.” One of the most mind-bending statistics I ever read in college.

ganon probably quotes twilight at zelda. he probably even identified with it. zelda groans but she won’t admit she read every ya vampire series that came out in 2009. she probably read on her lunch break when she worked at gamestop. between shifts of dealing with gross dudebros. she always was happy to help the little girl gamers find their perfect game. of course she chews her pencil. ganon bites through his.
i really don’t know how else tickling goes if ganon doesn’t let her win. maybe she suspends him in a spell. that’d be fun.
CAT VIDEOS. of course zelda loves cats but ganon is SO FASCINATED with them. they are fickle, small, and kind of cruel as a general rule. he is enamored. but the cat videos… too cute. he ran up their data usage downloading them. zelda doesn’t understand. hahahahaha this last one.
when they first started dating, they begin to make out. ganon thinks of twinrova and it’s shit, bc “this is how you conquer hyrule?? HA” he is too sick to go on. they cackle at him mercilessly when he actually tells them this.



i see a lot of people spending time thinking about “who tops” in their otp when they should be thinking about

  • who quotes twilight at the other person
  • who appreciates cat videos more
  • who spent a hellish summer working in the worst gamestop you can imagine
  • who lets the other person win in ticklefights
  • who chews on their pencil
  • who’s the person who accidentally thinks of their grandparents one time while they’re making out and kills the mood


why do straight ppl think they can whine about gay ppl “throwing their sexuality in our faces” when almost every waking second of every minute of every day of my life is filled with heterosexual romance media and heteronormativity. like u think 2 girls holding hands in public is rubbing their sexuality in ur face you have no fucking idea what queer people go through on a daily basis shut the fuck up
