why do people say “don’t be a pussy” when talking about weakness more like “don’t be a man’s ego” because you know there isn’t nothing more fragile than that
because “pussy” is the shortened form of the word “pusillanimous”, which means “timid, cowardly”
and not the slang word for the female genital region?
literally no one else knows this. nobody.
Have you heard of Ban Bossy? It’s the new initiative from Lean In and the Girl Scouts that’s trying to ban “bossy” and similar words that are used to bring down girls that are ambitious, take risks, and speak up. By changing the way we treat girls who lead, hopefully our generation will someday see more women in leadership roles.
バトルロワイヤル (2000) Dir. Kinji Fukasaku
" Battle Royale is jagged and brutal and honest. From the very opening scene, which depicts the previous year’s combat, it’s bright and loud and garish and triumphalist. It doesn’t try to critically frame the spectacle; it is the spectacle, the same entertainment that the morally corrupt masses are watching. It doesn’t allow you any moral distance: if you are watching this film you, like them, are deriving entertainment from watching young people murder each other in horrific ways. It won’t allow you to get away from that. But in order to make that critique, BR has to sacrifice the intimacy and emotion that comes with a film seeking psychological realism—it can’t let us get too close to its characters, because the inhuman detachment of the audience is precisely the point. So it’s utterly crammed with irony; the violence is all cartoonish and excessive; the spurting gushing blood looks like ketchup. It’s pure satire. (And sharp as a knife, which is why it was so widely censored and banned.)” by Elucipher
