Hi there, I'm Amanda - Insufferable Know-It-All, feminist and ally, democratic socialist, atheist+, everlasting GOP-stopper, vegetarian, math and science enthusiast, and actress. I have a bit of a dark sense of humor and I can be really sarcastic, but I'm actually just a big softy, don't worry. You just have to wade your way through these snark-infested waters. (INTJ.)

(formerly thefriendlessfeminist and thepandaspensieve)

Regular URL: SkeptiKhaleesi

I (rarely) make low-quality YouTube videos on feminism and science and atheism and stuff.


I'm a bit like Stargirl, but sassier and sort of obnoxious.



I put on my magical feminist party hat and never took it off.

Leslie Knope is my patronus.

Some interesting info: This is very reminiscent of the Baby X experiments, in which it was discovered that people reacted differently to a baby’s behavior depending on whether or not they believed the baby to be male or female.  People were asked to watch a video of a baby reacting to a startling image (a Jack-in-the-box popping up), and describe the baby’s emotional state.  When people believed the baby to be female, they described the baby as being scared and upset; when they thought the baby was male, they perceived the baby to be angry.  This was very telling, as it showed that literally identical behavior could be construed differently based on the perceived gender of the subject.
