I never understood why cops ask questions like:
"Do you know why I’m standing here?"
"Do you know why I stopped you?"
"Do you know why I’m here?"
Like, figure out your spatial, existential issues elsewhere, bruh.
Pssst spoilers for real life: It’s because they’re trying to get you to self-incriminate. Always respond to such questions by reflecting the question respectfully.
"Do you know why I stopped you?"
"Why did you stop me, Officer?"

and let’s take a moment to appreciate the fact that michaelangelo had probably never seen a girl naked and when he want to sculpt or paint them his mentality seems to be “wow, everyone likes women….they must be like…..buff dudes. i love buff dudes. women are buff dudes but with little chest lumps and no wiener”
And my personal favorite, Adam and Eve
he literally painted adam and steve
"If a woman has [the right to abortion], why shouldn’t a man be free to use his superior strength to force himself on a woman? At least the rapist’s pursuit of sexual freedom doesn’t result in anyone’s death."
-Something Maine lawmaker Lawrence Lockman actually said
If you can physically recover from stab wounds, then I why shouldn’t I have the right to stab you? At least my pursuit of anger management didn’t result in your death.
“Researchers have found that, more often than not, African Americans and women tend to minimize experiences of discrimination, subconsciously denying or knowingly ignoring bias. When other people mistreat them because they are Black or female, they often find it less painful to heap blame on themselves than to acknowledge the racist or sexist animus that led to the situation.
For example, in a series of laboratory experiments, Karen Ruggiero of Harvard University and her colleagues asked volunteer subjects to take a test. The experimenter informed the Black research subject that one member of a panel of white judges would evaluate his or her test. The experimenter also confided that either none, some, or all of the members of the panel discriminate against Blacks. Similarly, in the gender study, women research subjects were told that one member of a panel of male judges would evaluate their test, and that either none, some, or all of the members discriminate against women.
After the test had presumably been graded by one of the panelists, the test booklet was returned to the subject with the grade F. Subjects were then asked to complete measures that assess how they make sense of the feedback and how they feel about themselves. Ruggiero and her colleagues found that although Blacks and women sometimes perceived discrimination, they were more likely to minimize discrimination and to blame themselves for their failures.
A similar study with white males as the subjects had rather different findings. White males were substantially less likely to blame themselves and more likely to see discrimination as the reason for their poor performance.”

i watched an episode of the thing you like
i am about to tell you literally everything about the thing
dragons are mentioned in almost all cultures all across the world even before they had interaction with each other and you’re telling me they didn’t exist
wow it’s almost like some kind of large lizard-like creatures roamed the earth at some point and left fossilized remnants of their bodies behind that ancient cultures were trying to make sense of
I have a lot of questions about Arendelle’s political system
