It’s really unfortunate that people with antiscientific views, who regard science with disdain, can rise to the highest levels of government in this country. That’s very scary.

Michael E. Mann, Scientific American March 2012
It’s hard to believe that in the 21st century we are still confronting rejectionism of science when so much of modern life depends so critically on the technological infrastructure that we’ve developed because of science. The very people who are denouncing what science has to offer in a wide variety of areas [benefit from] the contributions of modern science.

Michael E. Mann, Scientific American March 2012

puberty is a good thing.

i often look at people and comment on their attractiveness

(in my head)

so lately i’ve gotten into the habit of thinking “what a cutie”

and i think i should stop because i’m going to say it out loud by accident one day and cutie is a word you use with someone who is five, not a seventeen year old

AND SO

AS KATIE FINALLY

STARTS

HER PROJECT

SHE REALIZES

SHE LEFT THE BOOK IN HER LOCKER

VIRGINITY IS A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT

alimarko:

antithestasia:

Virginity:

  • is sexist
  • is heteronormative
  • commodifies sex
  • commodifies young cis-het white women
  • contributes to rape culture
  • contributes to slut-shaming
  • erases queer folk
  • erases transfolk
  • frames a woman’s worth as inversely proportional to the number of dicks that have been inside her

and much, much more! 

I’ve heard “sexual debut” as an alternative, and I quite like it. :)

7:03 once more I am reminded of how much I hate the MTA.

I was running to the bus stop and the bus left. Fine. Then I wait for ten minutes and three buses show, but the one I actually want to go on. PASSES THE STOP.

Now I am on the slow bus that stops at every stop even though they are really close together and just one person is there.

CURSE YOU 20 A, CURSE YOU

7:15 AM: If someone went on a murderous rampage here, I would totally understand why. Everyone walks so slowly and too far apart to skirt but to close to go in between.

So I ran down the subway stairs and there were two expresses. One was definitely leaving ( it actually just left) and the other was empty.

I’m in the empty one. I am late already, I might as well be comfortable! And OH MY GOD WHY DO FAT MEN LOVE SITTING NEXT TO ME FMLFML BTW MY LIFE WAS FINE BEFORE I COUKD FEEL YOUR THIGHS

7:51 You know someone was sitting too close to you when you get off the train and your leg feels weird from the lack of pressure.

3:40 PM This couple was hugging each other right against the doors and when they opened THEY WOULDN’T MOVE WHAT WHY WOULDN’T YOU MOVE IT’S FUCKING TIMES SQUARE A LOT OF PEOPLE GET OFF

HSISJABEJJD.

Now I am sitting down and I hope nobody accidentally molests the outside if my thigh.

5:50 PM IM GOING ON THE BUS AGAIN WISH ME LUCK
