Look, it’s our friendly male-privileged anon come to tell me I’m being all womanly hysterical.

I’m assuming you’re a guy. If you’re a girl, and this doesn’t piss you off, I’m a little concerned, honestly.

The fact is that it is a big deal, and you just earned yourself a free lecture on why so siddown and shaddup.

Cracked ran a rather diverting article today on

"6 Insane Sex Myths People Used to Teach as Facts"

including things like how westerners apparently thought that Chinese women who immigrated had sideways vaginas and that doctors attributed any number of problems to the fact that they believed women’s uteri could detach themselves when the woman was not pregnant and scamper around the woman’s innards like some sort of wayward jellyfish blob.
Hilarious, right? Can’t believe people used to think that! Oh, how naive they all were!
Which brings us to women-pee-out-of-their-vagina.
People back then kind of have an excuse for stupid notions, because a lot of the time there wasn’t the technology or research or scientific community to call them out on it in order to spread information that was actually factual.
We do not have that excuse today.
Yes, I heard that, greyface in sunglasses in the second row.
"well we don’t teach ridiculous stuff like that!"
Spoiler Alert: We totally do.
Stuff like the complete erasure of parts of female anatomy, publicly taught and widespread misinformation about others and the fact that I learned more about my own body with 15 minutes on Wikipedia than I did in two mandatory Health classes and a Medical Anatomy class.
Send your arguments at me, believe me, they don’t hold water.
"The clitoris doesn’t have anything to do with reproduction!"
Sex Ed covers more than just reproduction. Every time they sent me home with a little paper for your parent/guardian to sign, they said they would be talking about anatomy as well as reproduction.
"Well, female anatomy is a lot more complicated…"
Doesn’t that mean they should spend more time covering it rather than skipping over the parts they deem ‘unnecessary’? Even in my Medical Anatomy class when we had the diagrams to label, despite there being a clitoris in the diagram, there wasn’t a lil line to write down what it was.
"Maybe they didn’t think it was appropriate to talk about for high school."
Female pleasure.
So lewd.
How dare they.
Get the pitchforks and burn the witch.
"They don’t talk about male pleasure either!"
Bitch, please.
I heard aaaaalll about what happens when a dude is aroused and orgasms with the erections and ejaculations and all that nonsense.
Girl orgasms are apparently not a thing. And, depending on the class, neither was female arousal.
(Which I find decidedly disturbing, as a side note.)
"Female orgasms aren’t a part of reproduction either."
Maybe not.
BUT IT IS A SIMPLE PHYSICAL REACTION THAT SHOULD BE TAUGHT IF ONLY FOR SCIENTIFIC AND MEDICAL ACCURACY.
"Fine. The clitoris is controversial. That hardly covers the entire spectrum of female sexuality having misinformation and crap."
Apparently you didn’t read the part up above about how I did not learn what happens when a woman is aroused or orgasms in three years of classes that are supposed to teach me about this thing.
"If it took you 15 minutes on Wikipedia to figure stuff out, why are you so mad? That’s hardly a waste of time."
Because I deserve to know about my own body, and when schools teach Sex Ed in any form, they are taking on the responsibility of teaching me that.
And yet, I learned absolutely nothing useful.
That’s a problem.
"Okay, okay. They don’t talk about female sexual reactions, and that’s kinda sexist."
You know what else is kinda sexist? Telling men that sex is great and women that it’s going to hurt and suck and also you’ll get pregnant and die.
What am I talking about, you say?
The hymen. You know, the thing that covers a woman’s vaginal opening and breaks and there’s blood and that’s how you can tell if your girlfriend is lying about whether or not you’re her first.
Well guess what, buddy-boy, you dumped that girl for no reason because that’s not actually what a hymen is and you’re also a jerk.
The hymen is a flexible membrane that partially covers the vaginal opening (usually in a sort of crescent shape when they are but a wee lass) and did you notice the word up there? ‘Flexible’? Do you know what that means? It means that if a woman is sufficiently aroused, it prolly ain’t gonna break. (wow do you think this myth has anything to do with the lack of knowledge we’re taught about female arousal???)
I mean dude you can shove a baby outta that thing and it returns to its original shape, you can’t tell if a woman is a virgin or not by the state of her hymen anyways. They can tear during exercise n stuff as well but there is literally not much of a reason why sex should be painful for girls and why you call it “popping the cherry”
OH WAIT MAYBE IT’S BECAUSE DUDES LIKE TO THINK THAT THEIR DICK HAS MAGICAL POWERS THAT FOREVER CHANGES A WOMAN’S LIFE AND SHE’S NEVER BE THE SAME AFTER YOU WRECKED THAT TIGHT LIL HOLE.
Well, fun fact, if she’s tight that means you kind of suck balls at the whole sex thing.
This isn’t just a matter of some people making a mistake about how women urinate. This is part of a long history of the suppression of female sexuality to the point that when you get a damn diagram of the vulva, apparently they don’t mark where the urethra is because man we don’t want to spend too much time talking about ladyparts frick who knows what’s hiding down there…

In my own 7th grade health class, and even in goddam 11th and 12th grade highschool biology, they left out female pleasure to such an extent as a thing, that I thought orgasm and penile ejaculation were synonymous.  That orgasm was only a penis-owning thing; that orgasm was when those with penises spewed sperm, not that it was a pleasurable climax, not that it was its own thing, not that people with vaginas could experience them.

You want to know how we were told about the clitoris? Through less than two sentences in seventh grade health class.  “This is the clitoris: it’s like a button and and can get harder”.  That’s it.  That’s it.

Can we talk about how dangerous this is, actually?

Yes. I said dangerous. Not because I’m a girl and I would like sex to be enjoyable thank you, but because we’re teaching women that a men have a right to have sex be enjoyable where we do not.

We’re teaching women that if she is uncomfortable or in pain, that is normal and she has no right to complain.

We’re teaching women to do something because it makes a man happy, regardless of how she feels.

We’re teaching women to be the submissive, receptive partner rather than an active participant.

I didn’t learn about a woman’s arousal or a woman’s orgasm simply because apparently that isn’t important.

It doesn’t matter if a woman is enjoying it.

It doesn’t matter if she likes what you’re doing.

We teach these things in a public setting, and we wonder why youth are legitimately confused about what constitutes rape, and why it is a bad thing that has a profoundly negative and possibly permanent effect on the victim.

My mind is blown and I think I’m in shock.

 You guys..it gets worse than this.    Knowing all of this when my daughter got to be around 12/13 I wanted to find a book for her that would talk about masturbation and methods etc for how to do so.   I thought it was *super* important to try and undo this and to teach her about how her own body worked.    There was nothing aimed at younger girls.  So I started thinking about writing one and in my research I found out that giving her anything that talked about how to masturbate before she was 18, including providing her with a vibrator or any other “sex tools”   could land me a conviction as a sex offender.  Because it was considered in my state to be distributing pornography to a minor.  As a woman, it is illegal for me to provide educational material to my daughter on masturbation.   Let that sink in for a bit…

FUN STORY TIME

Warner Bros. Animation studios was one of the first, if not the first, major media producers to be introduced to, and subsequently effected by, internet “nerd” culture.

Tiny Toon Adventures was on television around the time the internet started to gain popularity, and Warner Bros. found themselves the unwilling targets of various letters and emails from several people in the furry fandom (which, before this point, had been mostly unheard of), requesting naked pictures of Babs Bunny and other characters. One dude in particular sent scores of letters to Tress MacNielle, Babs’ voice actress, describing sexual acts that he wanted to do to the characters she voiced. It became such a problem that Tress began cancelling appearances and soon lost interest in working on Tiny Toons altogether. The show was canceled not long after that.

The man who continually harassed Tress became the inspiration and base model for the “obsessed internet nerd” trope character that would appear at the end of the final episode of Tiny Toons (as “the most frightening thing in the world”), as well as in future shows, such as Animaniacs.

It’s hilarious that we live in a society that will shame you for how much sex you have and for the junk food you eat. Like, wow, how dare you eat delicious foods and have orgasms, you’re a monster. Enjoy your miserable life filled with pleasures.

“I'm just wondering if it's bad to eat after a workout? I usually workout in the morning on an empty stomach then have breakfast after but is this bad?”

—Anonymous

It is crucial to eat before and after your workouts. What you eat before (and if needed, during)your workout is crucial for fueling the workout itself and maximizing your performance throughout. What you eat after your workout is crucial for optimizing the recovery process (which basically begins as soon as your workout ends) and ensuring that your body has all of the supplies it needs in order to recover, adapt and improve the way you want it to.

The Purpose Of PRE Workout Nutrition: Your PRE workout meal is the meal that plays the largest role in supplying your body with everything it will need to ensure optimal performance during your workout. And, in the cases where a during-workout meal is being used (either in place of the PRE workout meal or in conjunction with it), its purpose is exactly the same. Specifically, the primary goal of the PRE workout meal is to accomplish the following: Reduce muscle glycogen depletion, reduce muscle protein breakdown, reduce post workout cortisol levels.

Recommendations:

  • 60-90 minutes pre-workout, have a solid, balanced meal containing: protein = 0.25g per pound of your target body weight, carbs = 0.25g per pound of your target body weight.

  • 30-0 minutes pre-workout – (and/or sipped throughout the workout), have a liquid or easily digested meal containing: protein = 0.25g per pound of your target body weight, carbs = 0.25g per pound of your target body weight.

The Purpose of Post Workout Nutrition: Quite simply, your POST workout meal is the meal that plays the largest role in supplying your body with everything it will need to repairreplenishrecover and adapt to the training stimulus that you just provided during your workout. Specifically, the goal of the POST workout meal is to accomplish the following: Replenish muscle glycogen that was depleted during your workout, reduce muscle protein breakdown caused by exercise, increase muscle protein synthesis, reduce muscle soreness and fatigue, greatly enhance overall recovery, reduce cortisol levels.

Recommendation:

  • Within 30 minutes post-workout, have either a liquid or solid meal containing: protein = 0.25g per pound of your target body weight, carbs = 0.25-0.5g per pound of your target body weight.

Its not crucial to eat before workouts. It depends entirely on the individual.

Personally, training with anything more than a tangerine or a couple of dates in my stomach makes me sluggish and weak and my performance fails. I feel most energetic on an empty stomach and my personal PRs were hit at like 7pm with little to no food eaten for like 6+hours before that. The amount of pre workout food recommended here would have me feeling tired, heavy, sluggish, and terribly weak and ready to puke during my workout.

Now, post workout nutrition is important and you guys should follow that. Just note that pre-workout is individual, do what feels best for you.

I understand where you are coming from. But pre workout nutrition is important. Those recommendations are very general and don’t work for everyone. The problem is a lot of people will work out in the morning after not eating for 12+ hours. Eating right before bed is an option for pre workout nutrition.

You have been eating during the day so you do have energy stores. But if there aren’t enough, your body can draw from your muscles for energy which can slow your progress. Which obviously hasn’t been a problem for you.

Like I said, its individual. I honestly find what I eat the day before the workout is the biggest factor in performance, along with eating as little as possible before working out. Every body is different.

Different things work for different people - nothing is absolute or going to work for everyone, and I only spoke up to this post because it said that it is crucial to eat blahblah, which is not true for everyone. For some people, it is crucial. For everyone? No.
