NO. Ducks are way worse than geese

why (ducks are bad tho yes)

"In species where forced copulation is common, males have evolved longer penises, but females have coevolved convoluted vaginas with dead-end cul-de-sacs and spirals in the opposite direction of the male penis," said Patricia L.R. Brennan, a researcher in the Yale Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. - source

also look how fucking smug that duck is

Yay! Feminist Anthropology time!

Prehistoric Cave Prints Show Most Early Artists Were Women

I added the emphasis in bold, but the “that” was already italicized in the article, and it’s probably my favorite part. I love this article, although I’m not a huge fan of the fact that it’s considered so incredibly shocking and radical to imagine that women possibly participated in society 40,000 years ago.

In other awesome feminist anthropology news: it is now somewhat accepted that the venus sculptures, rather than being depictions of female beauty by male artists, were self-portraits by women looking down at their own bodies. The paleolithic figurines lose their distorted proportions and acquire representational realism if we understand that they are self-portraits created by women looking down at their own bodies.

When I was a student at Cambridge I remember an anthropology professor holding up a picture of a bone with 28 incisions carved in it. ‘This is often considered to be man’s first attempt at a calendar’ she explained. She paused as we dutifully wrote this down. ‘My question to you is this – what man needs to mark 28 days? I would suggest to you that this is woman’s first attempt at a calendar.’

It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions? How often had I sped past them as I learned of male achievement and men’s place in the history books? Then I read Rosalind Miles’s book The Women’s History of the World (recently republished as Who Cooked the Last Supper?) and I knew I needed to look again. History is full of fabulous females who have been systematically ignored, forgotten or simply written out of the records. They’re not all saints, they’re not all geniuses, but they do deserve remembering.

the willendorf sculpture and others like her were /the first selfies/ and its amazing

The paleolithic figurines lose their distorted proportions and acquire representational realism if we understand that they are self-portraits created by women looking down at their own bodies.

I really, really love this sentence.

captain america stuff!  (theoretically. i didn’t have any references with me so please forgive weird faces.)
i have this AU idea (because this is me so of course it’s AU). basically:
(do i even need to say? HERE BE SPOILERS.)
what if:  when captain america was found in the ice, it was HYDRA moles who got their hands on him and the entire thing was kept hush-hush to the world.  they basically tried to do to him what they did to Bucky Barnes:  brainwash and reprogram him.  they think they succeed and start to send him on missions, but even though he always does what they ask him to, he always ends up wandering, too.  marveling at the world and feeling things, because no matter what HYDRA does they can’t destroy that part of him.
some genius in HYDRA decides to send him on a mission with the winter soldier (to keep him on task because the winter soldier is indeed the perfect soldier — also HYDRA takes perverse pleasure in reuniting Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes like that).  even though neither of them can remember themselves or each other, they start to pull at each other and things (or the very beginning of things, at least) start to fall into place — and they sort of realize what’s been (is being) done to them by HYDRA.
so they don’t go back.  they go on the run.  they don’t remember their names, so they go by Beta and Rho because that was HYDRA’s code for them, and because they are both fucking badass HYDRA can’t catch them again.
along the way they help fix each other.  they don’t remember who they were (only pieces here and there), but they find out who they are.
and things are epic and kinda really gay and they start getting back at HYDRA and become heroes and shit.
wooh, word barf, there you have it.

One of Amy Schumer’s comedy routines begins with the declaration, “I’m a little sluttier than the average bear. I really am.”
Degrees of sluttiness may be hard to define, but Schumer does talk frankly about many subjects — including sex — that can be uncomfortable for people, both in her stand-up act and on her Comedy Central series, Inside Amy Schumer, now in its second season. 
When Amy spoke with Terry Gross last year, she revealed why she’s so at ease talking about sex:  

"I have a joke where I say, ‘Oh, I’m going to bring [my mom] to a soccer game because I want to show her what boundaries look like.’ I just grew up in a house where things weren’t that taboo to talk about. And my mom, when she was teaching us to say our different body parts, taught me how to say ‘vagina’ the same that she taught me how to say ‘ear.’I think she wanted us to be able to tell her if we were ever molested without being embarrassed — and so there wasn’t this sense of shame. And I was running around naked to an age that probably wasn’t appropriate and just never was made to feel embarrassed or shamed because of my body or think anything was wrong with me, probably to a fault."
