im taking a human sexuality course and its been pretty fun so far cause the teacher is cool and not a real sexologist. i mean shes still a bioanthropologist but she describes herself as just “having an interest” in this topic, so its been pretty goofy.

we recently got finished with the penis section. she showed us part of this documentary made by this british guy obsessed with his tiny penis. it was hilarious but definitely could/would nevvverrrrr be shown on the american bbc. 

anyway, all it took to get the class laughing was slides showing “human variation” in this area. and its very interesting because we just started vulvas now and the teacher showed a similar slide and no one laughed. vulvas just arnt funny.

but the thing is the vulva class was pretty goofy too, just the humor came more from questions and observations than from just subject matter. like i asked “do other animals squirt?” and when we were looking at a legs-spread vagina diagram one guy in the back was like “it kind of looks like the eye of sauron.” The teacher said she was gonna keep that one.

also like all anthropology classes ive had so far, most people in this class are women. but during the penis section the men were making comments and asking questions, but in the vulva section they dont talk. well except for sauron guy in the back, but i think theres a fairly good chance hes gay (talks with stereotypical lisp, is taking a human sexuality class) so he may have a layer of social buffer between him and encountering a vulva in real life. thus giving him the ability to make jokes about it?

i wonder if the reason the men dont ask questions about vulvas is because socially it would make them appear sexist or ignorant to ask a silly question? or in the same vein they just dont think of any to ask. the women had no problem asking questions in the penis section though. 

i dont know its very interesting to me. i will see if the men have anything more to say as we do more of the vulva section next week.

Colored couch

uhhhh

i watched a video that said a good way to get better at doing line art was to practice making straight lines by crosshatching ur stuff…. might have gone overboard but the colors look pretty???

cant color every thing like this of course, it takes too long!

sometimes on this site i see a post where it talks about career fields becoming less prestigious as more women come into the field, and it seems true to me. but anthropology is listed as one of the fields counted as less prestigious, and i have never had someone count it out of the sciences like that. whenever i tell anyone im an anthropology major they usually just go “Oh! :o Big word,”

but there is no doubt that women out number men in all my anthro classes, and the in the club too. and ¾ of my anthro teachers last semester were women as well. 3/5 this semester, but to be fare one of them i had last semester too so she might not count.

which brings me to what this blogging is really about- notable features of my professors. keep in mind i say all of these things with admiration.

1st one- has a small spiderwebbing of purple veins visible on his cheeks + wore a bowtie the 1st day of class. = A+

2nd- ill call him Dr. M. (he will come up again) tall bald man with TAs that are vocal and sit up front like slightly disgruntled/amused christmas elves. even though hes bald he must be blond because he cant be older than his 30′s and yet has quite visible pale eyebrows and beard against his skin, quite like the ‘painted on’ style of facial hair from  the sims 3 create-a-sim. Wow!

3rd- nondescript skinny white woman, but mentioned at the start of the class that students wrote in their evaluations that this class was not hands on enough in class, probably because they had taken her for lab classes and thought this one would be more like that, but it is in fact a lecture class. so she says shes trying to make it more hands on now :c. starting with “crime scene mondays.” Hang in there! A++++ for effort. i will give you a good review, never change!

4th- good butt (also good teacher C:)

5th- the one i had last semester. really like her. all tests are online. did research in kenya. Dr. M. also did research there, but when we mentioned him she was like “yes, students do seem to like him, hahahaha~” she says that she spent her research running from goats and he spent his in the club. she also knows some of the people on the naledi team and some chimpanzee researchers and last semester she showed us a video from them where chimpanzees attack other chimps, and kill a baby chimp, and share the meat. it was a video about cooperation. Cool!

im not sure this is what ur supposed to do in college but schoolwork hasn’t picked up yet and im having fun

BONUS: a quote from a lab teacher last semester. (she is also incidentally the only non-white teacher ive had at this school- nothing to do with the quote tho)

“when you die, your cat will immediately start eating you. a dog will wait a few days, but a cat will immediately eat your face and hands. a dog will wait, but it will eventually start eating you.” 

wow!!!!!
