If a disproportionate amount of Tumblr users are INTJs, this would explain a LOT about the culture on here.
According to personality tests, I am an INTJ. What do you mean?
I keep having anxiety dreams so today I woke up at 6-ish (after staying up past midnight) and never went back to sleep so now I’m exhausted and Shabbat service is so late tonight and I just want to stay home but I really want to go at the same time.
I love to see children who are so delicate and gentle with animals. It warms my heart amidst a sea of brats pulling cats’ tails and getting whacked.
Also JESUS THAT’S A SNUGGLY CHICKEN.
I love how she reaches up on her tippy toes to snuggle into his shoulder.
The idea of the lurking monster is no doubt a useful myth, one we can use to defuse any fear of the women we love being hurt, without the need to examine ourselves or our male-dominated society. It is also an excuse to implement a set of rules on women on “how not to get raped”, which is a strange cocktail of naiveté and cynicism. It is naive because it views rapists as a monolithic group of thigh-rubbing predators with a checklist rather than the bloke you just passed in the office, pub or gym, and cynical because these rules allow us to classify victims. If the victim was wearing X or drinking Y, well then of course the monster is going to attack – didn’t she read the rules?
"Very important. General rule for English speakers - if you don’t do it in the human context, don’t do it in the nonhuman context.
Just make a little effort to say “she or he” or “her or him” if you don’t know the sex. It’s a little effort with a very important social message.
Nonhuman animals are *persons*, not *things*. Therefore, we should refer to a nonhuman animal as a “she” or “he,” never as an “it.””
Since when are animals considered people? What personhood do they have according to law?
Stuff like this is completely bizarre to me. You can safely argue for animal welfare (and even animal rights) without insisting that animals are people. If anything, it diminishes the intrinsic, unique worth of non-human animals even more if you have to treat or think of animals as people in order to care about them. This applies doubly for dogs who, while capable of reading and imitating our social cues due to thousands of years of co-evolution, are definitely not people and should not have the same rights or freedoms as people. Your dog doesn’t care about democratic freedoms, and the aforementioned chick sure as hell doesn’t care about being misgendered.
