I’m still an undergrad, but seeing as this happened in an academic setting and is a serious count of mansplaining by a professor, I thought it would fit.
I’m a psychology student in my junior year and recently signed up for a Neuroscience class in order to help prepare me for my selected field. I…
I think this guy is an asshole but the “simply PMS” bit pisses me off. I have depression caused by a hormone deficiency. I manage it with the pill, but for a week every month I am… pretty badly off. “Simply PMS” is not so simple.
In fact, let me be blunt - I don't want them to end up in bed together. That's just not what the show is for.

Robert often calls it a bromance, but one of the bros just happens to be a woman. I think it's a really apt description because there's this idea that a man and woman can't be together - on a show, especially - without needing to be together sexually or in love or whatever.

their leader flew over 200 missions and was never captured.
how the fuck is this not taught in every single history class ever
pretty sure I’ve reblogged this before but it can happen again
