The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology has dealt a devastating blow to the notion that men and women are fundamentally different when it comes to how they think and act.

“Although gender differences on average are not under dispute, the idea of consistently and inflexibly gender-typed individuals is,” Bobbi J. Carothers of Washington University in St. Louis and Harry T. Reis of the University of Rochester explained in their study. “That is, there are not two distinct genders, but instead there are linear gradations of variables associated with sex, such as masculinity or intimacy, all of which are continuous.”

Analyzing 122 different characteristics from 13,301 individuals in 13 studies, the researchers concluded that differences between men and women were best seen as dimensional rather than categorical. In other words, the differences between men and women should be viewed as a matter of degree rather than a sign of consistent differences between two distinct groups.

No fucking shit.

This is probably the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen.

Of course this is unsettling to realize, but I’ve heard this multiple times now from various science news blogs.

As someone who’s already had a tumor cut out of one of my breasts (not cancer), and someone who’s also had family members with breast cancer, this is something I’d love to avoid…

It’s part of the reason I don’t eat dairy, and I never sleep wearing a bra, but during the day, I’ll never go without one, mostly because I prefer feeling gender neutral and hate noticing that I have breasts, I’d rather them be as not annoying as possible. Is it really a situation with no upside?

Art note #31

You don’t get a free pass on stealing forms of art just because the artist is famous and or rich.

You don’t get a free pass on stealing forms of art because the artist’s fame means a corporation gets part of the money.

If the artist truly offers free downloads, as a fan, you should be respectful enough to tip them whenever possible.

Just because a website lets you save the HQ file of an illustration doesn’t mean you should try to get away without buying a print.

"The other person is you" idea doesn’t vanish when the artist "too rich or popular to notice", it adds up.

Just because the artist is dead doesn’t mean the money doesn’t stay within the art community and perpetuate art education.

Just because it’s legal doesn’t mean it’s okay, for example Pandora (online radio) pays artists/singers/songwriters .00002 cents per track played.

Respecting artists doesn’t have made up stopping points, if you can’t be enough of a fan to respect them and their work, then move on.

I love people who are hardcore about their art.

Vegan note #77 “Vegan privilege”

Vegan privilege is using 16-20x the slave labor because eating what you want matters more than poor people’s very lives — wait, that’s meat, never mind.

Let me try again, vegan privilege is having your food subsidized by everyone’s taxes just so you can have it be affordable for you when meat eater’s have to pay what it’s worth to the consumers —- wait, no, I got that one backwards too…

Vegan privilege is having the option of putting the very planet and it’s environment secondary to flavors you prefer, or an extra dollar or two a month, because you have that option. Crap, I got it wrong again.

Vegan privilege is living in the West where meat can be eaten freely unlike in any 3rd world country… I meant veggies, not meat, whoops.

Trying again… uhm, vegan privilege is having the option to afford to live as harmlessly as possible, for cheaper if you count how little risk your health will now be at, and simply not choosing to even try because you don’t care about anyone, including your own body or the very water you drink, ugh, no that’s still meat, dammit I keep getting this wrong…

Hmm… vegan privilege is…. *thinks*

Vegan note #76

I often hear meat eaters say “Well, you use slave labor to gain your food too!”

To which I have to say “Yep, I use 1 for every 16-20 that you use (and that only applies to the meat farms and grain farms for their food, not the transport, not the food you season your meat with because it tastes awful plain), now what’s your excuse?”

Here’s the difference, not eating is not an option, so what do you do when harm can’t be 100% avoided? Minimalize it. Simple as that.

PS - With that argument, from a non-vegan, you’re doing one of two things; assuming slave labor might not even exist, but it sounds like a good argument, so you’re giving it a try based on zero knowledge, or you do have knowledge that slave labor exists AND YOU COULDN’T CARE LESS to reduce that because “mmmm steak”, right?
