"The paradox of vengefulness is that it makes men dependent upon those who have harmed them, believing that their release from pain will come only when their tormentors suffer."

Fragmented Sculptures Convey Powerful Strength

Edge Sculpture website

This striking collection of contemporary sculptures is filled with a powerful strength conveyed through dramatic gestures and unique forms. Entitled Edge Sculpture, the collection was designed and sculpted by Matt Buckley, the Creative Director of Robert Harrop Designs. The series includes a variety of animals, humans, and mythical creatures ranging from a Cobra to a penguin, a dragon, a unicorn, and a warrior.

It’s even cooler when you stand back and squint your eyes.

Or take your glasses off

or take your glasses off

The only pic that’s ever made me exercise

for the first time being short sighted is good for something.i pity the people with perfect vision who can’t remove their glasses and appreciate this.

I am a person with perfect vision who used to have glasses, but still has the ability to squint and unfocus her vision.  (As well as some other nifty stuff that my doctor probably doesn’t want me to do, like see in double) 
So I’m having FUN with this

Let me talk to you about books.
Specifically, one book. This book.
This book should be a best seller. This book should be required reading for graduating from high school. Before you get that diploma, you read this book.
This book deals with debunking “Neurosexism,” which is a very fancy term for all of that evolutionary psychology bullshit that people spill about those “brain differences” between boys and girls.
This book debunks such myths as:
Boys are better at math than girls
Women make crappy lawyers/business CEOs/etc, as their brains are not cut out for aggression.
Men make crappy counselors/primary school teachers/primary parents/etc, as their brains are not cut out for empathy.
MEN ARE BUILT FOR GOING OUT AND HUNTING WHILE WOMEN ARE BUILT FOR STAYING HOME AND BABYMAKING IT’S NOT SEXISM IT’S JUST BIOLOGY
And many other such myths.
Furthermore, this book covers topics such as: 
Neurosexism and gender perceptions in multiple races (as this is not a singularly white experience, just as the western world isn’t a singularly white experience)
Sex discrimination in the workplace, and how women are (or, more often, are not) allowed to behave
How science is used (badly) to support many of these claims
Experiences of trans people, both through interviews and empirical studies.
AND FINALLY - It is all brilliantly researched, cited, compiled - and it’s easy to read! Cordelia Fine actually manages to be funny while writing this, which I think is important, because it makes all of this information infinitely accessible.
Delusions of Gender has reinforced what Oberlin taught me: The gender binary is stupid and arbitrary, and dangerous. And it is a self-perpetuating bias that needs to be addressed to be overcome.

So adding this to my to-read list.

And it’s currently available on Kindle for $3.34.

THIS BOOK IS EVERYTHING
Cordelia Fine is a damn good psychologist and this book is approachable and fun to a lay reader, but also PACKED with important research results, clearly conveyed. Strongly recommend this puppy to anyone who is interested in neuropsychology, evolutionary psychology (which is a crock of shit, by the way), developmental psychology, gender, or childrearing. Every new parent should read it. Every misguided gender essentialist should read it. Everybody. It’s so good. 

Wait let’s do a book club about this too.
