I’m going to take a break from Tumblr for awhile. You’ll see my instagram posts, but I need to start reading more and pulling myself away from social media. This is an indefinite break.
that settles it
we have to get rid of the ocean
Cape Romano Dome House
"Built in 1981 on the southern tip of Marco Island, the Dome House is an igloo-like concrete complex made up of white dome chambers, now decaying and slipping slowly into the ocean. Many know about it’s whereabouts but it’s origins were up to debate; from alien to secret cults. In truth, it was built by a retired oil producer and inventor… The structures remain there to this day but are so far from the shore due to changing shoreline, that any attempt at saving them has probably long been lost.” [via]
Anonymous said: But breasts ARE sexual organs? They release oxytocin when stimulated, that makes them sexual.
ive had to deal w this argument before ok listen here
boobs do the oxytocin thing when theyre stimulated yes, nipples are an erogenous zone. Men’s nipples do this too. Now read over those two sentences and let the double standard dawn on you okay? Think about it if both kinds of nips release oxytocin when you do the touch touch on them, why is only one kind of nip considered a sexual nip? sexism that’s why
it’s ridiculous and technically makes a dude’s nipples more inappropriate than a lady’s nipples because boy nipples serve virtually no other purpose than to be stimulated by temperature change or by sexual activity, while girl nipples serve the added purpose of oh you know, feeding babies no big deal
but nah man nah both can be aroused so both nips are sexual or no nips are so make up your mind
you know where else is an erogenous zone?? ears. Are you wearing an ear bra/?? Why the fuck arent you wearing your fucking ear bra you trash put on yoourfucking ear bra youre not allowed to show your fucking ears thats so inappropriate and its makinng me horny its distracting me from my school work youre not following the dresscode wear your fucking ear bra yo ufucking
Things like this annoy me. I am feminist but SERIOUSLY. Boobs are genitalia. Accept it. And if you can’t then walk around in public topless. Completely topless. Enjoy embarrassing yourself.
Breasts are not genitalia. They are secondary sex characteristics, just like facial hair is for men. If you need a complete description of what “genitalia” really are, read this article on wikipedia (some photos are NSFW).
Our concept of topless being “shameful” and “embarassing” is purely cultural and it isn’t absolute. In other cultures women walk around topless and men simply don’t care. For them, seeing a woman’s breasts is as normal as seeing her face.
Oxytocin is released during labour which is about the least sexy time possible. We use artificial versions to induce labour/birth and it does absolutely nothing for arousal (in my experience it just makes things cramp and hurt and I only had the post-birth version).
Oxytocin is the LOVE (/connection) hormone which helps us bond with people including our children after a lot of pain (which breastfeeding is for many people which is why it’s useful there), it is not the fucking hormone (that’s more connected to testosterone). I’m not sure how that got confused. Nipples/breasts are not genitals in any species. That doesn’t even make sense, they’re to feed babies, any other benefits are secondary and certainly not universal.
They don’t even necessarily serve a sexual function. Some women don’t get any pleasure from having their nipples stimulated.
i know people who get turned on when their ears are played with we gonna go banning ears too

We’re emotional illiterates. We’ve been taught about anatomy and farming methods in Africa. We’ve learned mathematical formulas by heart. But we haven’t been taught a thing about our souls. We’re tremendously ignorant about what makes people tick.
