THIS IS PERFECT
NPR, I LOVE YOU
Somehow I just finished everything that I needed to get done today.
Damn. I feel so fucking productive.
- Passed in the penultimate part of that huge design project for my engineering class
- Wrote and passed in a halfway decent 3.5-page paper for Irish Lit
- Studied for and probably didn’t bomb a dynamics exam
- Applied for a research assistant fellowship
I am actually quite proud of myself :D
…of course now I need to get working on the stuff that’s due Thursday, Friday, Monday and Tuesday…. :/
Somehow I’ll get through this next week, right?
now no more having a bad day, because no matter how stressed you are i promise promise promise it’ll get better and you’ll get everything done it will all be ok!
and here is a picture of some kittens to make you happy!
I don’t know if rape jokes encourage rape culture. I don’t care. You still shouldn’t tell them.
Statistically, if you have told a rape joke to a group of more than five people, one of the people you told it to was a rape survivor, possibly of multiple rapes. They will not necessarily disclose this to you; rape apologism is endemic in society and most rape survivors are cautious about whom they tell. Some may even be too ashamed of their rape to admit it to anyone, or because of rape-minimizing narratives like “men can’t be raped” and “I consented to oral, so I couldn’t have been raped” may not admit it even to themselves. The fact remains: if you’ve told dozens of rape jokes in your life, then you have almost certainly told a joke that minimizes or trivializes rape in front of a survivor.
And if you put as your Facebook status “I totally raped at Halo today” for your two hundred Facebook friends to see, statistically, you have just reminded thirty-three people of one of the worst experiences of their entire lives.
To describe how well you did at a video game.
Good job!” —
see, this is something that aforementioned idiot should listen to. if you think racial equality exists because we have the same purported opportunity to pull ourselves up by our bootstraps, ask if we even started at the same point, when people of color didn’t even have the same opportunities to set up a foundation for the life of this generation. you think your white grandparents got the same jobs as a person of color’s grandparents, so that they could retire and you would know they’d have access to healthcare? you think your white family was offered the same rates (or even chances) for home loans as a family of color’s so that you didn’t have to work a job through high school to meet rent? you think that your mother worrying if you’re going to get into a good college is hard enough? what if on top of that, your mother also had to worry that you might get gunned down in the street because of the color of your skin?
i’m sorry buddy, but you are wrong, and chris rock is so, so right.
