I'm David, and welcome to my blog! I'm a Psychology major at OCCC/The University of Oklahoma and I love to talk into microphones, or just talk in general, so feel free to message me anything for any reason!
I am by no means a therapist (yet!) but I play one on the Internet.
Make sure to check out my links!

My sexual nature has a theme song.
straight boys think girls can’t take compliments, and that’s ridiculous cause i’ve seen so many girls compliment each other, i’ve seen conversations & friendships blossom from girls complimenting each other in line, on the street, at school waiting for the bys, pretty much anywhere.
the problem is straight boys think sexual harassment & assault are compliments.
Ohohoho- that notion is SO fucking sexist its repulsive.
I reblogged a quote the other day that expresses how I feel about this pretty dead on:
“There’s a strategy behind talking about young women as out-of-control girls gone wild or innocent damsels in distress. If we’re no more than sluts or victims, then it’s reasonable for society to make our decisions for us.
For those young women who are considered victims or potential victims, like the purity princess or the young, white, suburban girls whose parents live in fear of internet stalkers and the corrupting influence of MTV, a “Daddy knows best” paternalism is omnipresent. Whether it manifests itself in the form of forcing girls to take virginity pledges and go to purity balls, or even is propagated by a casual joke when parents laugh about how they’re going to have to lock their teen daughter away until she’s twenty-one, the idea that these young women need protection spreads perpetually." (x)
I am not saying that parents shouldn’t look out for their children or in anyway not help guide them and protect them into adulthood. I am saying that the double-standard that is perpetuated by society; that young girls are either out of control “whores”, or damsels in distress, with little room in between is fucked up and godawful.
I despise the notion that fathers are going to shoot with a gun (What is it with men and guns? It’s gotta be a territorial super violent stand in for their dicks, right?) all potential ~prospects~, until the little virginal ceramic princess finds “the one” which will then win the fathers approval and she will ceremonially be walked down the isle to be given up to another man. (Another practice that I abhor and will never take part in as I am not livestock handed down from man to man.)
The patriarchal bullshit that intense paternalism is heroic is incorrect, and bad for society as a whole.
