Brains, Girls, and Lazy: icecream-eaterrr I just heard this woman say "you procrastinate because you are afraid of rejection. It's a defense mechanism, you are trying to protect yourself without even trying." and I think I just realized what was wrong with me eupheme-butterfly Yep, this is a very, very common reason for procrastinating. It's also why procrastination, even though it's often associated with laziness, is a fairly common trait in a lot of people with anxiety and perfectionism issues dsudiS This idea - You're not lazy, you're protecting yourself- hit me really hard while reading, of all things, Emily Nagoski's Come As You Are which turns out to be as much about how brains work and how relationships work as how orgasms work. In an early part of the book she talks about Fight/Flight/Freeze responses to threats-the example she uses is being attacked by a lion You fight, if you think you can defeat the lion; you run away, if you think you can escape the lion; and when you think there's nothing you can do, when you feel the lion's jaws closing on your neck, you freeze, because dying will hurt less that way. You just stop and go numb and wait for it to be over, because that is the last way to protect any scrap of yourself Later in the book, she talks about the brain process that motivates you to pursue incentives, describing it as a little monitor that gauges your progress toward a goal versus the effort you're expending. If it feels like too little progress is being made you get frustrated, get angry, and, eventually, yo.. despair. You stop trying You go numb and wait for it to be over, because that's the only way left to protect yourself So it occurred to me that these are basically the same thing-when facing a difficult task, where failure feels like a Threat, you can get frustrated and fight it out-INCREASE DOING THE THING until you get where you're going Or you can flee-try to solve the problem some other way than straight on, changing your goal, changing your approach, whatever. Fight or flight. But both of those only apply when you think the problem is solvable, right? If the problem isn't solvable, then you freeze. You despair. And if you're one of those Smart Kids (Smart Girls, especially) who was praised for being smart so that all tasks in the world came to be divided between Ooh This Is Easy and I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN DO THAT AND IFI FUCK UP I WILL DIE, then... it's pretty easy to see how you lose the frustration/anger stage of working toward a goal, because your brain goes straight to freeze/despair every time. Things are easy and routine or they are straight up impossible So, you know, any time you manage to pull yourself up and give that lion a smack on the nose, or go stumbling away from it instead of just falling down like a fainting goat as soon as you spot it on the horizon, give yourself a gold star from me. Because this is some deeply wired survival-brain stuff. Even if logically you know that that term paper is not a lion, it really is like that sometimes Source: icecream-eaterrr 517,124 notes
Ass, Bitch, and Friends: goosegoblin i have so many Feelings about the word 'bitch'. i love when it's used humorously (i'm out here ruining my own life as always bitch'), i love when it's reclaimed (i'm a boss-ass bitch), i love when my female friends call me jokingly (listen here bitch'), but when a man says it? sirens, warning lights when a man calls a woman it it comes with such hatred. it's stabbing. it's sharp and vile and it drips misogyny. it's funny how the word can be fine 95% of the time and the other 5% of the time it genuinely fills me with fear silverbastardgoldenfool This is the nature of reclamation! In 2019 "bitch" is for women. Gay jokes are for Igbtqia+ people. The n word is for African Americans. And the list goes on. There's a rea- son why those words feel different depending on their source; just because we've reclaimed the word for ourselves does not mean we've reclaimed it for everyone. It doesn't mean that word is cleansed of its history and stripped of its weight. And it certainly doesn't mean that the groups who used to wield those words as weapons against us can't still hurt us with them - even if that's not their intention naamahdarling Yes. A word CANNOT be reclaimed by, or for, a group it never described And we are not obligated to GIVE BACK "bitch" (or "queer" or any other reclaimed slur) to our oppressors, even if we use it daily to describe ourselves They don't get to use it to describe us anymore. Not for a very long time, and maybe never Source: goosegoblin 38,927 notes
College, Fucking, and Saw: greyliliyladyalexb Follow deadcatwithaflamethrower people l still want to stab over a decade later: Creative Writing Professor at a former college: Welcome to creative writing! By the way, you will not write fantasy, ghost stories, pranormal, or science fiction in this class, as this is a creative writing course. morgynleri What the ever loving fuck is with "creative" writing professors who think that speculative fiction of any stripe ISN'T CREATIVE? hebibliosphere I still remember my own creative writing teacher telling me this because he saw the Terry Pratchett book on my desk and got this smug smirk on his face like "aha, gotcha". He had the nerve to pick it up and call it "popularist fiction', like somehow being popular and easily accessible made it less inherent in intellectual value. I had it in my back pack because I did my final thesis on the evolution of mythology and folk tails into fantasy and sci-fi and the societal importance of telling stories (before anyone asks, no l don't have it, I lost it when I moved continents), and I used Terry Pratchett because there wasn't a single humanitarian issue the man did not touch on. Which I told him. And then he kind of floundered and went "ah, well but, it's...well I mean it's not exactl Shakespeare or Dickens you self-important turnip. Dickens was literally selling his stories by the chapter. He was the popular author of his time. Shakespeare was too, he fucking made up words and phrases all the time because the language he needed to express himself didn't exist in the way he needed it too. " like neither the fuck was Intellectual elitism is nothing more than a hold over from class warfare and the belief that only certain people should get to be truly educated. And it needs to be smashed #Writing #All types have their own value. #Queue 108,090 notes
