what doesnt kill you gives you exp points
Alright, here’s something funny. These boys in my hall went outside in their undies to take some photos in the snow. Funny, right? They’re trying to get attention and it’s hilarious. Us ladies choose to do the same, we are wearing more clothing, and are doing the exact same poses. We are wearing as much clothing as is acceptable at the pool or the beach, at the gym, etc.
There is a serious double standard here— us girls have gotten responses like:
"What’s the point of being half naked?"
"*ahem* sluts *ahem*"
"What’s wrong with you females?"
Or worse, what my mother said. Her initial shock was apparently because she thought I was in my underwear, but when I told her I was in a swimsuit, she was suddenly happy I was having fun in college.
The idea here is that we are doing the same thing. When arguing this point with one of my hallmates, he said “But men’s bodies aren’t built the same, you don’t see girls getting pumped up over a topless guy, but how many guys do you think are gonna get all crazy over a topless girl?” Seriously? Really? Women don’t need to dress in order to avoid a reaction from men. You’re mad because you can’t control yourself? Men can pose in their undies in the snow without an issue because women aren’t going to go wild over it? Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours.
The double standards are killin’ me.
"Keep it in your pants, that’s your responsibility, not ours." Is literally one of the best quotes I’ve ever heard. Thank you.
"Her initial shock was apparently because she thought I was in my underwear, but when I told her I was in a swimsuit, she was suddenly happy I was having fun in college."
the male-female double standard on nudity is awful and needs to be discussed but the underwear-swimsuit paradox pisses me off even more at times. because it makes absolutely no fucking sense. there is literally no basis for it, there aren’t even any stupid sexist rationales that people can whip out when the topic comes up and yet it remains. underwear and bikini swimsuits give the exact same amount of bodily coverage and are often totally indistinguishable and yet one is taboo and the other is completely acceptable I don’t even
I’m deeply amused by this guy who thinks a) girls don’t have a reaction to topless guys, and b) he’s obviously not considered all the gay guys who will certainly notice. Also all of the above. People. ugh.

Do you ever have a character where every time they make an appearance you just
