Take note: this is how to properly disarm someone. Always go to the outside of the arm, not the inside.

ah yes I have been doing it wrong the whole time it seems cowering in fear was not the first step

But I agree with you. It bothers me that I’m always told that I do strong female characters. When in reality, I look at my characters and I feel like they were all broken. They all came from a very devastating past. They were trying to achieve something, they had hope, and they wanted to get someplace, like everything other character that has a meaningful and relevant arc in the story.

It’s because we don’t really know women. We don’t write women accurately. We don’t see women the way that we should see women as a society, as a human race. When you see a real woman, you shouldn’t be saying she’s strong, you should be saying she’s real.

I’m not saying that Gamora is an exception, but you look at my character in Columbiana, and she’s stealthy, she’s agile, she’s physical. But even if I wasn’t physically agile, she would still carry the baggage of whatever happened in my childhood. And I handle myself in the way that I feel a woman should be. I don’t create it. It’s just something that comes natural.

So when people think they are paying me a compliment, in reality what we are saying as a society and as an art society, is that we need to focus more on the real aspect of what a woman is, and not the superficial cosmetic features of a woman as a muse to inspire us to create calendar girls. To create bombshells. To create serviceable characters, beautiful paintings of the girl with a pearl earring: if there’s nothing there behind it, it’s just her face - what’s the story?

is that a supernatural video game

Give me this video game

JESUS CHRIST

WHERE CAN I PLAY THIS GAME

WHERE CAN YOU FIND THIS GAME??

WHAT IS IT GIVE TO MY

WHY ARE WE NOT GETTING ANSWERS?!

That’d be because I was asleep! Sorry ( ̄▽ ̄)

It’s an SPN fan game that I’m trying to make! It’ll be for PC and hopefully mac, too… It’s taking a lot longer than expected because I’m pretty busy and I’m not great at parallax mapping (so I end up spending hours on each map), but when it’s finished a download link will be put on my blog.

For now, all game updates are tagged “#supernatural survival horror” uwu

MORE NOTES PLEZ.

Fun little trick I learned in therapy: validation. When someone is upset, don’t try to fix the problem, point out the cause, or tell them it could be worse. Just validate their emotions. Be like, ‘shit yeah man, that sucks. I’m sorry you’re going through that. I’m here for you.’ That’s literally all you have to do to make them feel better. Thank you and goodnight.

Dominance Behavior in Canids

I didn’t really even WANT to make a post about this.

The alpha-beta-omega model of wolf packs is dead in scientific literature, hammered into the ground, so to speak, and it’s been dead for over ten years. So why am I still hearing about it on TV and reading about it in articles? Why are popular dog trainers that encourage you to “be the alpha” still taken seriously?

I think the unfortunate truth is that the idea that there are strong and ferocious leaders in wolf packs and that you, too, can take on that role with your dog is just somehow appealing to people. Almost romantic, in the older sense of the word. And because of this, it makes money. It sells werewolf media. It sells dog training classes. Educational science channels that have no business promoting this false ideology keep it on board because it gets people watching.

If you couldn’t tell, I’m pretty fed up with the whole thing.

Okay, let’s talk about dominance, particularly what the word even means, because popular media does a terrible job of explaining it.

Read more…

This is fantastic. I roll my eyes so hard every time I see yet another writer trotting out the alpha/beta shit for their werewolf packs.

If you want to write about a group of werewolves that are emotionally and physically assaulted by the individual they elected to lead them on a regular basis, fine. But don’t pretend that’s really how wolf packs work.

(Although, that would be pretty interesting, actually. If the author recognized that she was writing an unhealthy and abusive dynamic and actually portrayed it as such? Pack alpha character actually a violent, terrorist cult leader? Pretty neat. I’d read it.)

Although I have to point out that there was a piece of speculative science fiction called The Blazing World published by one Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 1666, slightly predating Mary Shelley.

This is the thing. Women have been doing awesome shit since there was awesome shit to do, we’ve BEEN THERE, if anyone bothered to look.

Oh, they looked. And then maliciously and willfully erased us from the books to keep anyone else from “getting ideas.”

Hell, the first named author in history? Enheduanna, a Sumerian high priestess, poet and lyricist. She’s known as the Shakespeare of Sumerian literature.

 #make way for the booty parade

Reblogging again bc I’ve been watching it for awhile (for characterization purposes!) and I thought Widow was running a little, erm, poorly. But then I remembered her ankle got pinned under that beam when the Helicarrier was attacked and this AMAZING BITCH IS RUNNING ON A BROKEN ANKLE.

ain’t no broken limb gonna stop the truly fierce one

No but the amazing thing is that things like that often get forgotten about in filmmaking. Oh she’s got a broken ankle huh? Oh well, I’m sure the fans won’t notice. BUT WE NOTICED AND THEY ARE AMAZING AT DETAIL IN THIS MOVIE.
