biorhythmicadaar asked:

Look on the bright side. You’re alive, aren’t you?

apostatemosquito answered:

"I thought you’d be bigger."

"I could say the same about you."

The scruffy brunet eyed the tattooed elf across the table, his insolent response at odds with the dangerous set of his hands as they hovered near his daggers. A massive qunari nearly wider than the doorway shifted toward the pair of humans standing before the Inquisitor but the elf merely raised his hand without taking his eyes off of them.

"Easy, Bull," he said mildly. Rising to his feet in a rustle of cloth, the Dalish mage stepped around his desk and approached the two men. He noted the way the brunet shifted his stance, a subtle motion but one that nonetheless put him slightly in front of his companion. Ah, so that was the way of it. He had heard rumors, of course, but one could never be sure.

Shae paused in front of the two men, head tilted up to inspect the tall human, green eyes focused on tawny brown. “So. The famous Champion, here in my Keep. I have heard much about you, though I’m certain it can’t all be true.” To his credit, Hawke didn’t flinch, but the blond behind him shifted and Shae’s attention turned to the mage.

What would you do if you woke up and you had a dick and a hairy chest and big bones and muscles and a beard and everyone thought you were a man?

appropriately-inappropriate answered:

Get a job, run for President and walk alone at night without carrying mace and looking over my shoulder.

I’d also take the opportunity to travel to places a woman can never go unaccompanied; I’d travel alone, I’d see Tunisia and Morocco and go skiing in Iran and see Russia and Mexico and camp alone.

You say this like I’d wake up shocked and horrified and appalled, but all it means to me is that I’d be free:

Free to leave dishes in the sink knowing someone else will handle them, free to have a sense of humour and take up space and not have men harass me and creep at me and make rape jokes, and free to hold a woman’s hand in public and not fear for my life.

Free to make more money, do more things, meet more people. I’d be a Human, not a woman.

This isn’t realistic whatsoever. More than likely you would get gender dysphoria. 

Besides that women can already do all of those things, granted with more difficulty with some of those (barely any with a lot of them though)

I might get sex dysphoria, when I looked down and went “sweet fuck what is this weird sausage shit hanging from my crotch?”,
But I’d get over it when I saw my next paycheque and had my opinions taken seriously at my place of employment and was considered for a promotion ahead of qualified female colleagues.

I’d miss my tits, but not bad enough to cry about potentially running for office without my sex being held against me.

It’s not too wise to predict the impact of something you’ve never experienced.

You’re right. As a woman, I’ve never experienced an equal standing in the workforce and know that should I run for office, they’ll ask me about my hair, clothes and whether I think I can juggle having a family and a high powered career, as they did to Hillary Rodham-Clinton.

That’s the entire point. I’d LOVE to think I could one day be promoted to CEO of a Fortune 50 company. Of a Fortune 500. Of any company, really.

But my sex is an automatic blow to that aspiration, because men are vastly over represented in law, politics, business and health care. When in those fields, women make considerably less, even when all factors are accounted for.

So I’ll try anyways, but you’re right. I’ll probably never experience it.

I was talking about sex dysphoria not the social capital that comes with being a man. You made a prediction that money would assuage whatever sex dysphoria came with suddenly waking up in a male body.

"Get over it"

OP has no fuckin idea what dysphoria is like

OP is also trying too hard to claim shit that’s been debunked way too many goddamn times.

Then debunk them.

Go ahead, let’s see these sources. I can cite mine, what about you?

Prepare thy anus.

It’s bullshit. 1

2 women are the majority in the work force

3 male unemployment sky high

4 some fields have women make more

5 Dads wish they had more family time.

6 (women avoid math related fields.)

7 multiple sources.

8 More sources.

Shit ton of sources.

Countries with most equal laws and culture have the biggest gaps in careers due to people being free to choose their own field rather than take whatever job is available. And there is evidence that there are intrinsic differences in male vs females interest in the first day in life.

The 15 Jobs Where Women Earn More Than Menhttp://www.forbes.com/sites/jennagoudreau/2011/03/14/jobs-where-women-earn-more-than-men/

Women aged between 22 and 29 earn over £10 per hour on average, compared to men their same age who earn just under this amount. http://www.womenintechnology.co.uk/news/young-women-earn-more-than-men—news-800761492

Young women now earn more than men in UKhttp://www.womensviewsonnews.org/2011/10/young-women-now-earn-more-than-men-in-uk/

The only chairwoman in the FTSE 100 index of biggest British companies, when asked about government efforts to force companies to make at least 25% of board member to be female said: “there’s no real evidence to suggest women being on a board makes the companies any better – what we’re doing here is forcing an experiment.” This was further supported in the book “Why Men Earn More” by Warren Farrell, Ph.D., examined 25 career/life choices men and women make (hours, commute times, etc.) that lead to men earning more and women having more balanced lives, and that showed how men in surveys prioritize money while women prioritize flexibility, shorter hours, shorter commutes, less physical risk and other factors conducive to their choice to be primary parents, an option men still largely don’t have. That is why never-married childless women outearn their male counterparts, and female corporate directors now outearn their male counterparts.http://www.reuters.com/article/domesticNews/idUSN0752118220071107?feedTy…

Farrell also lists dozens of careers, including fields of science, where women outearn men. Women simply have more options than men to be primary parents, and many of them exercise that option rather than work long, stressful hours. That is why 57% of female graduates of Stanford and Harvard left the workforce within 15 years of entry into the workforce.http://edition.cnn.com/2005/BUSINESS/03/15/optout.revolution/ This is an option few men have (try being a single male and telling women on the first date that you want to stay home).

For every 100 girls,

Male victims of domestic abuse have a 47% chance to be threatened by police, 35% of being completely ignored, and a 21% chance of being arrested themselves. 

Of the abused men who called domestic violence hotlines, 64% were told that they “only helped women.” In 32% of the cases, the abused men were referred to batterers’ programs. Another 25% were given a phone number to call that turned out to be a batterers’ program. A little over a quarter of them were given a reference to a local program that helped.

Sixteen percent said the people at the hot line “dismissed or made fun of them.” 

In fiscal year 2015 the United States Government will grant Two Hundred and Twenty Two Million in Grants to Combat Violence against WomenNo money is earmarked to benefit males. None

Meanwhile organizations such as NNEDV.ORG lists men not getting a job as a form of domestic violence.

Must Watch: Emma Watson delivers the most power speech to United Nations about feminism

If men don’t have to be aggressive, women won’t be compelled to be submissive. If men don’t need to control, women won’t have to be controlled. Both men and women should feel free to be strong. It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals. We should stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by who we are.
