Being Alone, Dude, and Food: Professor: Wings-Eating Show Hot Ones Is Problematic for Women By KATHERINE TIMPF July 12, 2018 6:33 PM oo O O O Hot Ones host Sean Evans (YouTube screengrab via First We Feast) A YouTube show that challenges contestants to eat increasingly spicy chicken wings has raised the ire of a Tulsa media-studies professor. ccording to a professor of media studies at the University of Tulsa, the YouTube show Hot Ones is problematic because it "manipulates inequitable gender hierarchies." In case you aren't familiar with Hot Ones, it's a show where the host challenges his guests to eat increasingly spicy chicken wings. Seems pretty harmless, right? An innocent chicken-eating show couldn't possibly be something that's actually hurting women, could it? Well, Professor Emily J. H. Contois thinks it could. According to her paper, "The spicy spectacular food, gender, and celebrity on Hot Ones," published in the journal Feminist Media Studies, the show "creates, maintains, and manipulates inequitable gender hierarchies through the interrelated performances of gender, food consumption, and celebrity." In other words: According to Contois, society just doesn't accept the idea of women eating spicy foods, and that is the reason that only eleven women have appeared as contestants on the show so far. Women, she argues, know that they don't really stand a chance on Hot Ones, because gender binaries "create power hierarchies by feminizing dainty, light, and sweet flavors and foods, eaten in small portions with restraint." The paper goes on to claim that society conditions people to believe that "real men" are supposed to "seek out and conquer" spicy foods, and that "being the type of dude who loves hot sauce is part of performing conventional masculinity.. through actions like disregarding risk and facing danger fearlessly" Women, on the other hand, aren't supposed to eat messy foods like wings, or to discuss topics such as the effects that spicy foods might have on their digestive tracts, because these topics are "often considered taboo for women to openly discuss, let alone as part of a celebrity persona" without adopting a sort of "cool girl" persona, which some women might not want to do. <p><a href="https://feminismisahatemovement.tumblr.com/post/175942345598/alaija-mogai-watch-oh-my-god-stop-a" class="tumblr_blog">feminismisahatemovement</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://alaija.tumblr.com/post/175942082248/mogai-watch-oh-my-god-stop-a-woman-who" class="tumblr_blog">alaija</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://mogai-watch.tumblr.com/post/175941005491/oh-my-god-stop-a-woman-who-eats-hella-spicy" class="tumblr_blog">mogai-watch</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>Oh<br/> My<br/> God.<br/> Stop.<br/> -A woman who eats hella spicy wings and doesn’t appreciate this kind of nonsense “academia” getting funded while departments contributing more than virtue-signaling and divisive dreck are chronically under-funded.</p></blockquote> <p>Some brave woman just needs to smash the piquant ceiling!!!</p> <p><br/></p> <p>Or just have a Thai woman go on there…</p> </blockquote> <p>Go easy on them, feminists ran out of things to be plausibly outraged about in around 1982.

Anaconda, Dude, and Family: 1 H Proglodyte 8720 points 17 hours ago I never really understood the whole Sugar Daddy fetish until I started seeing a girl who makes significantly less money than I do. I took her to a nice restaurant she could never afford on her own and seeing how happy she was with a big smile on her face got the ball rolling. After that even doing mundane things like going grocery shopping with her was a huge turn on for me. On her own she mostly just eats rice, but I took her to a grocery store and let her fill her cart up with whatever she wanted. For the first time in her life she had a grocery bill over $100 and she's 33. She insisted on going through self checkout and every few items she would look at me with this huge smile. It's not a fetish I ever knew I had, but I love to indulge it now. Her mom's fridge was destroyed in a flood, so I bought her a new one. Her niece wanted to go to a science convention, but it was too expensive for her family so I paid for that too. Seeing that elated look on her face when I help out her or her family just really does it for me. permalink save report give gold reply <p><a href="http://derpomatic.tumblr.com/post/174417423165/siryouarebeingmocked-scdk-nsfw-milloboi" class="tumblr_blog">derpomatic</a>:</p><blockquote> <p><a href="http://siryouarebeingmocked.tumblr.com/post/174417345305/scdk-nsfw-milloboi-etirabys-i-did-not" class="tumblr_blog">siryouarebeingmocked</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://scdk-nsfw.tumblr.com/post/174241230635" class="tumblr_blog">scdk-nsfw</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://milloboi.tumblr.com/post/159891964066/etirabys-i-did-not-expect-to-be-touched-while" class="tumblr_blog">milloboi</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://etirabys.tumblr.com/post/156508238094/i-did-not-expect-to-be-touched-while-skimming-a" class="tumblr_blog">etirabys</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>…i did not expect to be <i>touched</i> while skimming a reddit thread on fetish origin stories</p></blockquote> <p>that dudes fetish is called: being a loving and caring dude</p> </blockquote> <p>Clearly, when you’re not being taught as a child what generosity and altruism are; when you finally experience someone else’s joy and happiness as result of your own actions - unable to understand these emotions you go through… you start to vilify yourself by calling it a fetish, as if something is wrong with you, in this current current age where a large majority of the people are selfish and looking out only for themselves…</p> <p style="">Yeah, I can see why he thinks himself a Sugar Daddy.<br/></p> </blockquote> <figure data-orig-height="164" data-orig-width="230"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/f940962a3b6288159bfa1f6be444eba2/tumblr_inline_opeozifJaa1r9bq4i_250.jpg" data-orig-height="164" data-orig-width="230"/></figure></blockquote> <p>He’s getting turned on by being nice to her and her family?<br/><br/>That must make family dinner awkward.<br/><br/>“pass the salt please”<br/>“thank you!”<br/><br/>“hnnnnnggggghuuuuuhhh”<br/></p> </blockquote> <p>Yikes</p>

Golden eagles make this sound when receiving allopreening and similar affectionate and soothing treatment from their parents and mates. It’s the “I am safe and well fed, and somebody familiar is taking good care of me” sound. Angry raptors and wounded raptors make some pretty dramatic hisses and shrieks; frightened raptors go dead silent and try to hide if they can, or fluff up big and get loud and in-your-face if hiding isn’t an option. They can easily sever a finger or break the bones of a human hand or wrist, and even with a very thick leather falconer’s gauntlet, I’ve known falconers to leave a mews (hawk house) with graphic punctures THROUGH the gauntlet into the meat of their hands and arms, just from buteos and kestrels way smaller than this eagle. A pissed off hawk will make damn sure you don’t try twice whatever you pulled that pissed her off, even if she’s been human-imprinted.</p> <p>If you’re ever unsure about an animal’s level of okayness with something that’s happening, there are three spot-check questions you can ask, to common-sense your way through it:</p> <p>1. Is the animal capable of defending itself or making a threatening or fearful display, or otherwise giving protest, and if so, is it using this ability? (e.g. dog snarling or biting, swan hissing, horse kicking or biting) <br/><br/>2. Does the animal experience an incentive-based relationship with the human? (i.e. does the animal have a reason, in the animal’s frame of reference, for being near this human? e.g. dog sharing companionship / food / shelter, hawk receiving good quality abundant food and shelter and medical care from a falconer)</p> <p>3. Is the animal a domesticated species, with at least a full century of consistent species cohabitation with humans? (Domesticated animals frequently are conditioned from birth or by selective breeding to be unbothered by human actions that upset their feral nearest relatives.)</p> <p>In this situation, YES the eagle can self-defend, YES the eagle has incentive to cooperate with and trust the human handler, and NO the eagle is not a domesticated species, meaning we can expect a high level of reactivity to distress, compared to domestic animals: if the eagle was distressed, it would be pretty visible and apparent to the viewer. These aren’t a universally applicable metric, but they’re a good start for mammal and bird interactions.</p> <p>Pair that with the knowledge that eagles reserve those chirps for calm environments, and you can be pretty secure and comfy in the knowledge that the big honkin’ birb is happy and cozy.</p> <p>Also, to anybody wondering, falconers are almost single-handedly responsible for the recovery from near-extinction of several raptor species, including and especially peregrine falcons. Most hawks only live with the falconer for a year, and most of that year is spent getting the bird in ideal condition for survival and success as a wild breeding adult. Falconers are extensively trained and dedicated wildlife conservationists, pretty much by definition, especially in the continental USA, and they make up an unspeakably important part of the overall conservation of predatory bird species. Predatory birds are an important part of every ecosystem they inhabit. Just like apiarists and their bees, the relationship between falconer and hawk is one of great benefit to the animal and the ecosystem, in exchange for a huge amount of time, effort, expense, and education on the part of the human, for very little personal benefit to that one human. It’s definitely not exploitation of the bird, and most hawks working with falconers are hawks who absolutely would not have reached adulthood without human help: the sick, the injured, and the “runts” of the nest who don’t receive adequate resources from their own parents. These are, by and large, wonderful people who are in love with the natural world and putting a lifetime of knowledge and sheer exhausting <i>work</i> into conserving it and its winged wonders.</p> </blockquote> <p>reblogged for excellent info, I’m so glad that big gorgeous birb really is as happy as it looks!</p> </blockquote> <p>Today’s bit of <a href="http://osberend.tumblr.com/post/152834355142/lately-ive-been-thinking-about-positive-and">positive activism</a>: A reminder that, although the world may contain many bad and awful things, it also contains an enormous winged predator clucking happily as a human gives it a belly rub.<br/></p> </blockquote>

White people didn’t make this happen alone, the stigmas against mental health in racial communities held by poc also are a huge factor in helping to cause this. And then people wonder why mental health issues aren’t taken seriously in poc communities. </p> <p>But how can anyone take an issue seriously when no one wants to address it responsibly? Or see it as the non-racial occurrence it is - mental health issues happen to everyone, race has nothing to do with it. Stop racializing mental health issues. A lot of poc blame mental health stigma on white people, but you can’t, you can’t blame others for what is perpetuated in someone’s own community by someone’s own community members.</p> <p>So that’s why everyone, <i>everyone</i> needs to step up for mental health.</p> </blockquote> <p>This is so important.

Being Alone, Children, and Money: Children Killed by One Parent: 2001-2006 Mother, alone or with other 70.8% Father, alone or with other 29.2% Source: U.S. DHHS Child Maltreatment reports 2001-2006 <p><a href="http://feminismisahatemovement.tumblr.com/post/160554214303/the-us-department-of-health-and-human-services" class="tumblr_blog">feminismisahatemovement</a>:</p> <blockquote><p style=""> The U.S Department of Health and Human Services “Child Maltreatment” reports from 2001-2006, show that of children abused by one parent, 70.6% were abused by their mothers, whereas only 29.4% were abused by their fathers, and of children who died at the hands of one parent, 70.8% were killed by their mothers, whereas only 29.2% were killed by their fathers. <br/></p><p>A common and seemingly reasonable response to this is “well, women, as the primary caregivers, are exposed to children more often, so of course the data would show them as being more often the perpetrators of child abuse, by virtue of frequent exposure.” However, this removes all moral responsibility from the female, essentially citing exposure as an excuse for immoral behavior. <br/></p><p>Exposure does <i>not </i>excuse immoral behavior.<i> “Well, I work at a bank, so of course I had to steal the money.” </i>Adults should be expected to exercise self-control. Whether or not the data would be more balanced if men were more frequently exposed to the children (which we might know, if women didn’t win custody in over 90% of divorce proceedings, and if men weren’t still expected to be the primary financial providers), there still remains a problem, there still remains a victim, and there still remains a perpetrator who must be held accountable for their actions.<br/></p></blockquote> <p>Feminists won’t waste a single opportunity to point out that men more frequently perpetrate domestic violence but when you show them women commit child abuse more frequently you could hear a pin drop.</p>

Apparently, Bad, and Makeup: Tyga Gets Himself and His 5-Year-Old Son Sued After Putting King Cairo's Name On a Lease And Refusing To Pay Rent @balleralert IGETONMYLEVEL Tyga Gets Himself and His 5-Year-Old Son Sued After Putting King Cairo’s Name On a Lease And Refusing To Pay Rent – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tyga’s legal troubles have officially gone from bad to worse, and now his poor innocent son is involved in the madness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to TMZ, Tyga has been slapped with a lawsuit once again for unpaid bills, but this time, the “Rack City” rapper isn’t the only one facing the consequences of his actions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a lawsuit filed by Simon Cowell’s makeup artist, Mezhgan Hussainy, she says the rapper rented out her Beverly Hills home for $40k a month. Apparently, things were all good when Tyga moved in back in March of 2017, but he reportedly stopped paying rent in January and made no effort to catch up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a result, Hussainy wants him out of her home. She also wants the money he owes her for the back rent. Problem is, Tyga’s son, King Cairo, is also listed as a defendant in the lawsuit, as the rapper put his name on the lease upon signing.

Africa, cnn.com, and Memes: White South African Woman Becomes First To Be Jailed For Hate Speech After Video Of Her Racist Rant Goes Viral; Sentenced To Three Years @balleralert White South African Woman Becomes First To Be Jailed For Hate Speech After Video Of Her Racist Rant Goes Viral; Sentenced To Three Years – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While racist, hate speech should never be tolerated, it is strictly prohibited in South Africa, as it is specifically excluded from the protection of free speech in the Constitution. In fact, according to the NY Times, back in 2016, the country released a draft law that would criminalize racism, meaning hate speech cases would go to criminal courts instead of civil and would be punishable by up to 10 years in prison. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since then, the nation has moved to implement the new rules and subsequently make an example of a white South African woman. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to CNN, Vicki Momberg was found guilty in November for crimen injuria, better known as the willful injuring of someone’s dignity in her racist verbal attack on a black police officer. The incident was caught on camera and quickly went viral. Since then, Momberg has been prosecuted and sentenced to three years in prison with one year suspended sentence, as she becomes the first South African to be jailed for the offense. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We’ve had crimen injuria (cases before), but they have always been coupled by other charges. This is the first for a prison sentence for crimen injuria on its own,” a spokesperson said of the sentencing. “We are pleased with the sentence. This sends a clear message to those who undermine other people’s rights.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the incident that led to the sentencing, Momberg was caught on video hurling racial slurs at South African police officers after they stopped to help her after her car was broken into in Johannesburg. According to reports, she repeatedly used words that were used to insult black people during the apartheid. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, Momberg will have two years behind bars to think about her actions.
