lifehack: if you’re having trouble opening a jar, let the bottom half sit in hot water for a bit so the jar’s warmed up but the lid is dry and not slippery, then try again. The thermal expansion causes the metal lid to become looser and come off a lot more easily. There you go, now you don’t need no man to do it for you.
What the hell?
Niggas out here trappin women
Then wonder how your ass got burned
what the fuck…
I’ve had a dude do that before. that shit is terrifying. Dude went across the room like he typically would to get one. Came back and I didn’t know that he didn’t have one until he pulled out.
I FLIPPED. Cried all the way home. Cried for days. Got tested. Bought the morning after pill. Seriously, fuck dudes that do this. There should be laws against it.
There ARE laws against this. It’s called rape by deception or fraudulent rape and basically, it’s anytime the conditions of your consent are compromised. In a situation like this, you consented to protected sex. By having sex in a way you did not consent to, a crime WAS committed and he could be charged if any physical effects like pregnancy or STD occurred. Remember, ANY SEXUAL ACTIVITY YOU DON’T CONSENT TO IS RAPE.
If a guy does this, it’s rape. Call the cops. Ruin his life since he has no problem risking yours. Make him fucking learn. Rapists belong in jail. Rape by deception is rape, not a funny “meme”.
This is incredibly important for everyone to see!! EVERYONE
yes YOU NEED THIS ON YOUR DASH EVERYONE
what the fuck that is NOT okay
"Rape by deception" also includes those charming romantic “comedy” setups in which a guy A has sex with a woman who thinks he’s guy B (because it’s dark, or he’s an identical twin, or she’s drunk, or because magic or whatever). All of this, in addition to the condom thing, is illegal and absolutely is something you can file charges for.

Is a ship or a car a “she”, but only until it becomes sentient and gains agency and a personality of its own
(Check out the one lady here.)
In bee and ant colonies, all workers and soldiers are female, but only until they become animated characters
…And then we’re right back to the ‘token female’ rule.
"Mostly/exclusively male except for the queen and whatever other characters have to be female to be broodmothers or straight love interests” is not how these species work.
And before anyone says “well, some of those ants and bees in that homogenous crowd of blocky background characters might be females! You don’t know that they aren’t!”, yes we kind of do. The studios in question made sure of that by going out of their way to give every confirmedly female bee/ant/car an exceptionally sleek and curvy and twirly shape, a more pinkish colour, eyelashes, or all of the above. They shot themselves in the foot and now we know 99% of those universe’s characters are dudes because they lack those characteristics.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Pixar and Dreamworks, but wow holy shit they are not very good at avoiding the ‘male by default’ pitfall. If “realism” can be used as an excuse for there being virtually no women in anything with a historical setting (protip: it’s not, and you need to pay more attention to Women’s History Month), then I want my females where biology says they would be. I want my all-female colony of ants and bees, with the only males being these tiny useless creatures that only exist to fertilise the queen’s eggs and then die off. I want my forbidden romance between a female ant princess and a lowly female worker ant who likes inventing things. I want all my Cars to be ladies except for a few that come from other countries where the ‘object owned and steered by a man = female’ rule isn’t present in culture.
Because realism, right?
The fact that it’s so bloody difficult to find a female character in a movie who’s not involved in romance (compared to male characters) is just the other side of the coin of how much characters are male by default unless specified otherwise. Unless a character is needed as an incubator, straight love interest, or kidnap/horror movie victim who’ll seem more vulnerable as a female, they’re going to be male. Almost all female characters with romances on TV are characters who would’ve been male if the writers had decided to cut the romance.

GUYS THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT
This is some action movie shit
The first and second are the most useful. Everything else, you’re probably going to forget in a state of shock. You’re better off using your body anyway as you’re gonna have a great shot of adrenaline to back up that punch.
We all like to think we’d be James Bond in a situation like this, but we won’t.
