I keep having to remind myself that it’s the lionesses that do the hunting and killing and get their faces soaked in blood I mean is there a more badass animal

I TOLD YO BITCH ASS TO PICK UP THE CUBS
Pop culture ideas about lion social behaviour are actually pretty warped due to projecting human gender roles onto them.
Among African lions, for exampe, the male typically stays home and watches the cubs while the females are out hunting. At the conclusion of a successful hunt, it’s likewise the male who’s responsible for portioning out meat to the cubs (females rarely share their kills with cubs unless the male intervenes). Apart from these situations, males spend most of their time patrolling the borders of the pride’s territory to fend off competing predators, and have little influence in the pride’s day-to-day social organisation.
While in most popular depictions, the male lion “keeps” the pride to serve as his personal harem, it would be more accurate to state that the pride “keeps” the male as a combination bouncer and breeding stud.

Love when people are like “People hate women because of feminism” and I’m just like “Nah son the hatred of women long predates feminism, feminism is a direct result of the hatred of women.”

“I recently spoke at a university where a student told me it was such a shame that Nigerian men were physical abusers like the father character in my novel. I told him that I had recently read a novel called American Psycho,and that it was a shame that young Americans were serial murderers.”
