there's a beauty in walking away...

it's never that simple.
it's never that safe.
it never seems perfect until it's too late.
it's never the right time to find a new way...

So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.

Stay woke

Is this true?

Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”

You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to use their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.

There’s a documentary about this on Netflix called Pink Ribbons, Inc. if anyone’s interested.

Because I’ve been thinking about all of this a lot lately, and I decided I should probably channel that thought into something.

Not to mention that the reboot’s female uniforms exclude all indication of rank. Even the original series quite arguably sexist miniskirt look — and of all the things kept and changed, of course they decided to keep that — gave the women full sleeves in order to display their ranks on their cuffs.

stop saying “his or her”

use their

piss off prescriptivists
acknowledge nonbinary identities
make your sentences less clunky
advocate for common usage which is what leads to grammatical acceptance

b4 we assume things may i propose that perhaps she is just unfamiliar with the term? if you looked at the term “cissexist” without any previous knowledge u might liken it to “sexist against cis people” or something (which isnt what it means obviously but i literally thought that the first time i saw the term)

she literally didnt know what it meant she thought it referred to cisphobia 

i hope she doesnt get a bad reputation on my behalf :(

It’s important for us not to brand the wrong people as TERFs or bigots when they make these kinds of understandable mistakes. Good for her.

PLEASE take note of this.

Imagine finding a dragon egg one day, and it hatches in your house and thinks you’re its mom. Then the next morning you wake up and find this mini dragon has gathered all the lose change and shiny objects in your house in a pile, and is gnawing on a nickel. And then when you take it out for walks, it picks up every coin it sees cause its a hoarder. And your house is eventually full of coins. And you are rich. And have a dragon.

A 12-year-old schoolgirl has been accepted into Mensa after discovering she is brainier than both Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.

Olivia Manning, from Liverpool, managed to get a whopping score in an IQ test of 162 - well above the 100 average.

Her score is not only two points better than genius German physicist Einstein and Professor Stephen Hawking, but puts her in the top one per cent of intelligent people in the world.

YEAAAAAH!!!

(and of course the mainstream media won’t even acknowledge this because women doing smart things in math or science? GEDOUTTATOWN.)

This is so awesome!

SIGNAL BOOST! This is AMAZING!

woah

“she
managed to get”

Please tell me I’m not the only one seriously irked by this wording.

She’s a kid who got higher on Mensa than two adults revered by the scientific and intellectual community world wide. SHe should be their god. Her brain’s not even done cooking yet; when she’s finished, she might be 180. 230!

You go, Olivia.  Go where you want and do what you want.  Just listen to yourself.  And I have a couple of friends in England who can keep up with you if you need people who understand.

👏👏
