Then it Hit Me

17. Female. USA. This blog is rather inconsistent with what it posts, so yeah. Um...my main fandoms are Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin), Supernatual, and The Avengers. Feel free to send asks, as I am always up for a good chat.

Me 100% of the time. Luckily Ito help for my ADD when I was a child

fun facts!

  • ADD and ADHD are the same disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder was officially renamed Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in 1994. Many people use ADD to refer to Type One presented here, and ADHD to refer to Type Two, but they are the same core disorder.
  • In many cases where ADHD carries into adulthood, it’s a genetic issue [My grandfather, mother, siblings, and I have all been diagnosed with ADHD], though this does not always occur.

hello yes this is me

more fun facts!

  • there are a lot of talks about how ADHD is overdiagnosed, and that may be true for boys, but for girls ADHD is severely underdiagnosed.
  • older studies mostly looked at hyperactive boys and that’s the perception we have of ADHD. because of this many girls will go undiagnosed until adulthood.
  • most girls/women who have ADHD are inattentive type. they tend to be introverted, disorganized and daydreamers. 
  • girls will internalize these as personal failings and teenage girls have a much higher rate of suicide and self harm because of it
  • ADHD is often comorbid with anxiety and depression, both of which are caused by the failings from having ADHD
  • depression can present itself differently in people with ADHD. it’s more of a discouragement from constantly failing, but it can be just as debilitating.

One would assume that scientists, who are trained to think objectively, are completely immune to gender discrimination. However, a recent Yale study by Corinne Moss-Racusin and colleagues suggests otherwise.

The researchers created a fictional student and sent out the student’s application to science professors at top, research-intensive universities in the United States. The professors were asked to evaluate how competent this student was, how likely they would be to hire the student, how much they would pay this student, and how willing they would be to mentor the student. All of the applications sent out were identical, except for the fact that half were for a male applicant, John, and half were for a female applicant, Jennifer. Results showed that, with statistical significance, both male and female faculty at these institutions were biased towards male students over female students.
Data from the study shows that on average, science faculty was willing to pay the male applicant about $4,000 more per year. source

I think one of my fave parts of zankyou no terror was when all those girls asked nine for his email address and he said he didn´t have a phone but then his phone rang in front of all of them

“In a relationship, you need somebody who’s going to call you out, not somebody who’s going to let everything slide. You need somebody who doesn’t want to live without you, but can. Not somebody that is dependent, but somebody who is stronger with you. A relationship is two people, not one.”

Get your first look at Paul Rudd as Scott Lang in Marvel’s “Ant-Man,” now in production in San Francisco and in theaters July 17, 2015!

I have never been this unexcited for set pics :-/Without Janet, why the fuck even bother with this movie?

I… Cannot bring myself to care. At all.

I have seen every Marvel movie multiple times in theaters.  Want to know how many times I saw Avengers. Marvel?
13.
Thirteen times.  My friends and I had a contest, it was a JOKE.  ”How many times have you seen Avengers?”  Not ‘if.’  ’How many times?’
We’re all female, Marvel.  We’re girls.  And we weren’t really psyched by the lack of female characters you gave us, but you know what?  We were reassured by the ones you did.  We dealt.  We tolerated.  We waited patiently.
And when you announced Ant-Man, I told myself, at least we’ll get Jan.  Jan, who was one of the BEST parts of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.  Jan, the funny, sassy, fashion obsessed, girly-girl who wanted to be a hero, who didn’t need someone’s death to motivate her, who didn’t need someone to suffer for her to want to do what’s right.
Janet Van Dyne, who gave the Avengers their name.  I told myself, it would be worth it.  For Jan.
And then you pulled this.
I will not see Ant-Man.  I will not blog about your dumb ‘white boy pain’ movie.  You fridged one of the most iconic female super heroes in your canon, off-screen, to further manpain.
40+% of your audience for “Guardians of the Galaxy” was women.  And girls.  Little girls like my nieces, who deserve heroes of their own.  How sad that you’re determined not to give them to us.
Boycott Ant-Man.  That’s my tag.  Boycott Ant-Man.  Until we get Carol.  And Jennifer.  And Heather.  And Misty.  And Angela.  Until we get Monica.  And Patsy.  And Greer.  Until we get Sersi.  And Jessica.  And Kate.  And America.
Until we get females in your movies that aren’t killed to further a man’s path to heroism, because why else would we want to do the right thing?
Until we get Jan.
Boycott Ant-Man.
