this also kind of describes tumblr, but sorrow is accurate (if un-cheerful) and crayons are nice pretty much across the board
!!!!! those are all good things, and they’re all accurate! (≧◡≦) ❤️❤️❤️!
(if i could put tags on this it would say ‘especially kittens and pink’)
(it is really unsettling to not be able to tag asks, whoa)
so i kind of remind you of tumblr, in a sense
What/who do you associate with me?
I’m curious. What are the, say, top 5 things you associate with me?
Can be a tumblr user, a book, movie, character, actor etc.

even though it’s 12:30 am, do this? it’d be nice
maybe i’m just tired of winter and my stupid hair and FOOD and not feeling pretty when that’s like one of the very few not actively destructive ways i have of feeling better when i feel awful. i’m not even at ‘awful’ i just have that awareness of if i get there, there’s less standing between me and shutdown than i’m comfortable with.
i hope it’s just winter.
A study on masculinity and aggression from the University of South Florida found that innocuous – yet feminine – tasks could produce profound anxiety in men. As part of the study, a group of men were asked to perform a stereotypically feminine act – braiding hair in this case - while a control group braided rope. Following the act, the men were given the option to either solve a puzzle or punch a heavy bag. Not surprisingly, the men who performed the task that threatened their masculinity were far more likely to punch the bag; again, violence serving as a way to reestablish their masculine identity. A follow-up had both groups punch the bag after braiding either hair or rope; the men who braided the hair punched the bag much harder. A third experiment, all the participants braided hair, but were split into two groups: those who got to punch the bag afterwards and those who didn’t. The men who were prevented from punching the bag started to show acute signs of anxiety and distress from not being able to reconfirm their masculinity.
