woman slaps man

holmes interacts with irene for a grand total of… maybe an hour? he helps her marry her husband, and he rests in her sitting room for a few minutes

that’s it. that’s the entirety of their “relationship”

and yet somehow, here we are, with 126 years’ worth of he loves her he loves her he loves her!

Let Me Get This Straight: Equal Fights
  • Someone on imgur: Here's a post of a woman slapping around a man, and he retaliates in self-defense.
  • Imgur feminists: Urgh, you only like these sorts of posts because they're about hitting women!
  • Me (SYABM) : Okay, prove it.
  • Imgur feminists: What do you mean, "prove it"?
  • Me: Prove that misogyny is the only reason. I'll wait.
  • Imgur feminists: Well...there's never any popular posts about a woman hitting a man in self-defense!
  • Me: That's because no one cares when a woman hits a man, but a man isn't supposed to defend himself.
  • Me: And when men do defend themselves, people get uncomfortable.
  • Me: And then they call people sexist because they like it when someone CAN'T hide behind gender privilege.
  • Me: I see more comments from you lot COMPLAINING about this alleged sexism than actual sexism.
  • Imgur feminists: Look at all the creepy comments!
  • Me: Oh, well, as long as they're creepy, that's sorted, then.
Men get abused, too.(Yoongi scenario)

Ok so I decided to write this because I hate to see or read about the woman slapping the man. It gets me upset. If the woman was slapped in the same type of situation it would be unacceptable but it’s ok for men to get slapped? No! 

^^Sorry just watched another drama^^

Slap
Right across the face.
He stood with his hand cupping his cheek, mouth hanging open. Your eyes still narrowed at him.
“Y-You slapped me.”
You crossed your arms. “Yeah.”
Without a word he started grabbing random things of his.
Keys. Phone. Hoodie. Charger.
Stuffing them into a backpack with a look a anger fixed on his face.
“Yoongi what the hell are you doing?” You asked, uninterested.
“Leaving.”
You raised an eyebrow. “What?”
“You heard me. I don’t like being disrespected.” His face melted into version of his normal don’t give a care face.
“We aren’t even done talking.”
“You slapped me so yes we are.” He slung his backpack over his shoulder.
As he passed you to leave the room, you grabbed his shoulder but he brushed you off rather harshly.
“Yoongi it isn’t even that serious, don’t be a wimp.”
He turned to face you. “How am I being a wimp?”
“All I did was slap you.”
“Yes which is disrespectful.”
You rolled your eyes.
“Do you really think what you did was ok?” He asked, letting his backpack rest on the floor as he took a step toward you. “This isn’t even the first time you’d done this.”
You hesitated but nodded. You were starting to rethink your action. And it was true, a few times before you had slapped him similar to the way you just had. He gripped your arm tightly before letting go with a slight push. “Suck it up Yoongi.”
He put on his best look of fury before raising his hand. You flinched.
Your eyes were closed but after feeling nothing, you opened them to see him standing with his arms crossed.
Pleased at the confused look on your face he sneered. “You thought I was going to hit you. Right?”
You looked away.
“Exactly. Would that have been ok?”
You shook your head.
“Right, so what makes it ok for you to slap me?”
Your face burned with embarrassment as you rubbed your neck in shame. “I don’t know.”
“Look, I’m fine but if we’re going to continue our relationship and have mutual respect for each other you have to understand something: men get abused too.”
You looked up and saw how serious he was.
“I don’t agree with hitting women OR men. If we are, as genders, truly equal people need to keep that in mind. Next time you get upset can you just tell me how you feel instead of hitting me to shut me up? Because it doesn’t make my opinions any less valid.”
You nodded shamefully. “I’m sorry Yoongi.”
He hugged you gently.
Despite the hug you knew you lost some of his trust and respect. The same words repeated in your head over & over as you tried to enjoy the hug that was now missing something.
Men get abused too.

Woman?” She chuckled. “Is that meant to insult me? I would return the slap, if I took you for a man.” Dany met his stare. “I am Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, the Unburnt, Mother of Dragons, khaleesi to Drogo’s riders, and queen of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.

rh college au

Robin and Marian went to grad school together. They had the same advisor and wrote on the same things and had an intense affair (romantic, sexual, intellectual, emotional), but it all fell to pieces when their adviser, Roy Richards, left for another institution, taking with him Robin but not Marian. In the end, Marian was the one who wound up with the plum r1 tt job. She was always the more diligent worker, and more willing to jump through the “bullshit” [in Robin’s words] professionalization hoops the job market demands. Robin wound up languishing too long on his dissertation, mired in perfectionism, as their erstwhile advisor became increasingly unreliable and unavailable, wrapped up in an administrative post and new projects. Five years later, after bouncing from one postdoc to another, he winds up with a one-year visiting position at Marian’s institution, which just so happens to be in Robin’s home town.

Yo, hi. Yes, another masterlist from yours truly. Under the cut is informal words / sentences or phrases a British person would say, requested by anonymous. If there’s things in here that people in your country say, don’t freak out, we’re not completely different to America, Canada and Australia. It’s kind of in alphabetical order. If you happen to use this, a like or reblog would be hella rad.
