I just found this on my computer and I’m so confused
I tried to google what a chortle sounded like but found this instead
- it’s okay to be genderfluid but usually a girl
- it’s okay to be genderfluid but usually a boy
- it’s okay to be agender one day and bigender the next
- it’s okay to not identify as any specific gender
- it’s okay to keep your gender to yourself
- your gender is your own goddamn business
The recent release of “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" reminded me of one of my favorite ape vs. man films – this 1932 video that shows a baby chimpanzee and a baby human undergoing the same basic psychological tests.
Its gets weirder – the human baby (Donald) and the chimpanzee baby (Gua) were both raised as humans by their biological/adopted father Winthrop Niles Kellogg. Kellogg was a comparative psychologist fascinated by the interplay between nature and nurture, and he devised a fascinating (and questionably ethical) experiment to study it:
Suppose an anthropoid were taken into a typical human family at the day of birth and reared as a child. Suppose he were fed upon a bottle, clothed, washed, bathed, fondled, and given a characteristically human environment; that he were spoken to like the human infant from the moment of parturition; that he had an adopted human mother and an adopted human father.
First, Kellogg had to convince his pregnant wife he wasn’t crazy:
…the enthusiasm of one of us met with so much resistance from the other that it appeared likely we could never come to an agreement upon whether or not we should even attempt such an undertaking.
She apparently gave in, because Donald and Gua were raised, for nine months, as brother and sister. Much like Caesar in the “Planet of the Apes” movies, Gua developed faster than her “brother,” and often outperformed him in tasks. But she soon hit a cognitive wall, and the experiment came to an end. (Probably for the best, as Donald had begun to speak chimpanzee.)
This is the most adorable experiment that has ever been done.
read the paper. shot out to Florida State University… as much as it pained me to type that.
This story that’s been going around has been pissing me off so much. Like wow, maybe if you actually put a tenth of the effort that was put into this spreadsheet into figuring out what turns your wife on and off (hint: passive aggressive spreadsheet-making is probably a turn off), you wouldn’t be getting turned down so damn often.
Ugh I hate this so much. And of course, never read the comments. I saw so many saying “Sex is just a natural part of a relationship! Especially for men! Men have needs!”
1. Not everyone is interested in sex
2. Stop with the “men are just naturally more sexual” bullshit
3. You do not owe anyone sex ever. Can it be a bummer if you want it more often that your partner? Yeah, but that’s when you have to be an adult and talk to your partner about it.
"You do not owe anyone sex ever" being married doesn’t entitle you to another person’s body. Like why is that such a hard concept to grasp?
Exactly. You are never entitled to another persons’s body.
h/t to amomenttothink for retweeting this.
Please spread this around
I’ve always wondered if eevee might have other evolutions that we haven’t discovered yet. Maybe they’d look something like this?
how come you can name your kid Lily or Rose and that’s totally acceptable but you trying calling em Baby’s Breath and everyone flips
