For The Masses:
this vine is too real
My AP Psych teacher from high school keeps binders and notebooks with dicks drawn on them to use as visual aids for the Freudian unit.
One time she did this life changing little “experiment” where she ever so calmly asked guys why they draw penises on things. They tried to say “it’s just funny” or “you don’t understand” and she just kept saying “you’re right, I don’t understand. Explain to me. You already know what a penis looks like, why do you have to draw it on things? Are you marking it? Are you tagging it? Girls don’t draw vaginas on things.” And the guys suddenly started questioning their motives for everything they do and one guy was like “ms, stop talking about penises, you’re making us uncomfortable.” And she shouted “HOW DO YOU THINK WE FEEL SEEING DICKS DRAWN ON STUFF ALL THE TIME?”
I can imagine a cis girl who, since age 10, just draws vulvas on everything. And people are like “What is wrong with this girl?”. Her family puts her in therapy, they’re all worried about her mental health since she thinks drawing vulvas on every surface is so hilarious. Everyone assumes she’s a slut or she was sexually abused. But if you replace that one girl with ALL adolescent boys, it’s just a guy thing and normal and totally not weird at all.
What people think recovery looks like vs. what it really looks like
"you’re so full of yourself" no i had a lot of insecurites and a low self esteem which i worked extremely hard to overcome and now i realize that im awesome and i dont care if you think otherwise
