Supposedly invented by the Chinese, there is an ancient form of torture that is nothing more than cold, tiny drops falling upon a person’s forehead.
On its own, a single drop is nothing. It falls upon the brow making a tiny splash. It doesn’t hurt. No real harm comes from it.
In multitudes, the drops are still fairly harmless. Other than a damp forehead, there really is no cause for concern.
The key to the torture is being restrained. You cannot move. You must feel each drop. You have lost all control over stopping these drops of water from splashing on your forehead.
It still doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. But person after person, time and time again—would completely unravel psychologically. They all had a breaking point where each drop turned into a horror. Building and building until all sense of sanity was completely lost.
"It was just a joke, quite being so sensitive."
"They used the wrong pronoun, big deal."
"So your parents don’t understand, it could be worse."
Day after day. Drop after drop. It builds up. A single instance on its own is no big deal. A few drops, not a problem. But when you are restrained, when you cannot escape the drops, when it is unending—these drops can be agony.
People aren’t sensitive because they can’t take a joke. Because they can’t take being misgendered one time. Because they lack a thick skin.
People are sensitive because the drops are unending and they have no escape from them.
You are only seeing the tiny, harmless, single drop hitting these so-called “sensitive” people. You are failing to see the thousands of drops endured before that. You are failing to see the restraints that make them inescapable.
Another, other, other reminder that thefrogman is a pretty great ally.
Holy shit this breakdown is brilliant.
This is why I like asking their preferred pronouns. I have seen so many faces light up when I ask.
Mermaids, the most beautiful creatures of the sea, are often very mysterious and live in the deepest depths of the ocean waters. This golden mermaid is shown diving into the ocean, making a splash on her way down. No piercings required to be worn. Sold on Etsy.
Oh my Geezuhs! I needs it!

SIGNAL BOOST THIS NEWS! Seriously, how come this isn’t all over tumblr? Angelina Jolie presided over the largest ever global anti-rape summit. She is using her celebrity for good. She is addressing rape in wartime and in conflict zones, which is where it is perpetuated on the most massive scale and in which context always has been used as a weapon.
Feminists of tumblr should get behind this woman. Let’s stop the perpetual erasure and trivialization of women in the media through their sexualization and start looking at the work that they do. Her acts here are easily in danger of being eclipsed by her image in the tabloids which is more concerned with her relationship to Brad Pitt and the fact that she is a sex symbol than the important feminist work that she is performing RIGHT NOW.
I am such a fan of this lady… and she does not deserve to be trivialized for being a woman, a sex symbol, and a celebrity. Here, she is working for social justice for women all over the world. She’s doing what’s right.
A Voice for Men, a men’s rights site that is most notable for being featured as a hate site by the Southern Poverty Law Center, is currently hosting a conference on men’s issues in Detroit.
The images above are direct quotes of what some of the speakers at this men’s rights conference have said.
Sit back and marvel at the newest human rights movement.
Please share this post far and wide so everyone knows exactly what men’s rights activists believe!
Men’s rights activism is a hate group.
Huh. Well THIS is terrifying.
Have you read any of these?! Disgusting and backwards.
A fun evening spent cartooning this Batman Archer mash up. It makes me laugh. Hope you like it as well :)
Hey guys. I could really use your help in signal boosting this.
I’ve been seeing this sweater being shared around, and being sold at various sites online. This is my artwork and I never authorized the production or selling of these sweaters. I have been trying to track down all of the sites that sell it to get them to remove and stop selling the item, but I’m afraid it’s spread to a point where it is difficult to control.
Here are a few of the sites I found still selling them, though I did send them Copyright Infringement notices, so hopefully they won’t be up for long:
They are all from China, I think, so it has been hard tracking down the original manufacturer.
Please don’t buy or promote these sweaters. If you can spread the word, I would greatly appreciate it.
If you’re interested in shirts and sweaters with my work on it, you can head over to my RedBubble. I have the Catvengers, Purrlock Holmes, Supurrnatural, among others on there. :3
Thanks so much!
Share for the artist…if not that…for the KITTIES!
