In today’s edition of ‘Unnecessarily Gendered Items’

the only tea u should drink is


I was actually curious about this and so looked up the ingredients of each tea to see if there was an actual reason as to why they would be gendered.
Men’s tea: ginger, cardamom, liquorice, carob, cinnamon, barley malt, roasted chicory, peppermint, fenugreek, fennel, mace, anise, ginseng flowers, astragalus, turmeric root, chili pepper, cinnamon extract (natural flavour), black pepper. 
Women’s tea: ginger, cinnamon, orange peel, fennel, chamomile, barley malt, dandelion, black pepper, orange extract (natural flavour), juniper berries, liquorice, cardamom, cloves, angelica root extract (natural flavour).
I know from previous research that angelica root is used in some herbal remedies for menstruation, and we know chamomile has been used for soothing nerves.  The male tea has has more hot spices (which increases blood flow) and fenugreek (which apparently increases libido). 
This translates to: Period Tea, and Boner Tea.
Thanks, Yogi.


that’s…actually very interesting

fricking average untrained singers singing musical theatre songs on tv talent shows pisses me off because everyone’s like wow amazing and if an actual trained musical theatre singer went on everyone would be like no ur too musical theatre like being fricking trained is a bad thing

I kind of agree with this. Yes, being trained and knowing what you’re doing is great and makes you so much better than you could ever have been otherwise. Yes, many of these people on talent shows (Susan Boyle for example) aren’t as good as the general public build them up to be. But that they only come on with their natural talent and still manage to do a good job is pretty damn impressive in itself.

The Persian's Narrative

  • Erik: Why try to enter my house? I never invited you! I don't want you there, nor anybody! Did you save my life only to make it unbearable to me? However great the service you rendered him, Erik may end by forgetting it; and you know that nothing can restrain Erik, not even Erik himself.
  • The Daroga: I came out to have a good time and I am honestly feeling so attacked right now.
