❝Princeton University psychologist Susan Fiske took brain scans of heterosexual men while they looked at sexualised images of women wearing bikinis. She found that the part of their brains that became activated was pre-motor - areas that usually light up when people anticipate using tools. The men were reacting to the images as if the women were objects they were going to act on. Particularly shocking was the discovery that the participants who scored highest on tests of hostile sexism were those most likely to deactivate the part of the brain that considers other people’s intentions (the medial prefrontal cortex) while looking at the pictures. These men were responding to images of the women as if they were non-human.❞

how we talk about hockey players (outside of tumblr): He's an incredibly fast skater, an extremely effective forechecker, his puck-handling is phenomenal, he has an unreal ability to read plays, and his leadership role is absolutely vital to the team. And just take a look at this guy's stats! He's racking up points like crazy. I just can't say enough about what an amazing player he is.

"Did you see Catching Fire?"
He didn’t have to say anymore. I knew exactly what he was going to say because I wanted that scarf/shawl that Katniss was wearing too.
