Fuck you, Rachel.
No. Really. Fuck you, Rachel.
Hey Rachel. Fuck you.
Two things. 1) She’s sending these to her husband who’s stationed overseas. 2) Fuck you anyway. Any diet plan that doesn’t allow for any treats of any kind, even in moderation and paired with overall well-balanced choices, is a bad diet plan.
Sincerely,the mutual coworker who is 100% fed up with your constant diet policing

Great A’Tuin the star turtle, shell frosted with frozen methane, pitted with meteor craters, and scoured with asteroidal dust. Great A’Tuin, with eyes like ancient seas and a brain the size of a continent through which thoughts moved like little glittering glaciers. Great A’Tuin of the great slow sad flippers and star-polished carapace, laboring through the galactic night under the weight of the Disc. As large as worlds. As old as Time. As patient as a brick.

This has actually more than once at the hands of a few of my amazing friends. Some were upset about the way he treated me, others were upset with him for other transgressions so mind-blowingly selfish that the only fitting punishment was a dickpunch. Sometimes schadenfreude is okay, you know?

Adjuncts Professors make up 76.4% of all US faculty, and the majority live below the poverty line.
Mary-Faith Cerasoli, above, is “sleeping in her car, showering at college athletic centers and applying for food stamps.” 
“They call us professors, but they’re paying us at poverty levels…I just want to make a living from a skill I’ve spent 30 years developing.”
“Students aren’t getting what they pay for or, if they are, it is because adjuncts themselves are subsidizing their education.”

Wanna know how much I got paid for the last class I taught?? Not $500 a credit, which is typical of most places. I got $0. Nothing. It was considered part of my other job duties at the college. So you can be staff, be under-paid and under-appreciated and part-time, then also be “made” faculty as part of “other duties as assigned.” Yup.

Just to clarify, I’m not upset with you at all. The fact that he and I have mutual friends is a thing that I’ve mostly come to terms with. Sometimes I just get really frustrated that not everyone knows that side of him, but it’s kind of a pretty hard thing to bring up in person.

7 Things I Wish Parents Would Stop Teaching Their Children:

goddess-river:

  1. That nudity is inherently sexual
  2. That people should be judged for their personal decisions
  3. That yelling solves problems
  4. That they are too young to be talking about the things they’re already starting to ask questions about
  5. That age correlates to importance
  6. That interacting with someone of the opposite sex is inherently romantic
  7. That the default for someone is straight and cisgender
Oh wow he really talks a great game for someone who
made me feel guilty for the fact that sex hurt (a shallow cervix requires, you know, finesse)
did not provide any after-care whatsoever once I got hurt; routinely went straight back to programming while I cried myself to sleep
convinced me to agree to non-monogamous terms in order to salvage our relationship because I didn’t have sex with him enough (because when I did, it HURT)

South Carolina Mother Jailed Because She Let Her 9-Year-Old Daughter Play in the Park Unsupervised
Here are the facts: Debra Harrell works at McDonald’s in North Augusta, South Carolina. For most of the summer, her daughter had stayed there with her, playing on a laptop that Harrell had scrounged up the money to purchase. (McDonald’s has free WiFi.) Sadly, the Harrell home was robbed and the laptop stolen, so the girl asked her mother if she could be dropped off at the park to play instead.
Harrell said yes. She gave her daughter a cell phone. The girl went to the park—a place so popular that at any given time there are about 40 kids frolicking—two days in a row. There were swings, a “splash pad,” and shade. On her third day at the park, an adult asked the girl where her mother was. At work, the daughter replied.
The shocked adult called the cops. Authorities declared the girl “abandoned” and proceeded to arrest the mother.

The war on working class Black women in the U.S. continues apace. This time, a mother of a 9-year old child is arrested and jailed for the “crime” of dropping her daughter off at the park to play with other children while she had to go to work at a minimum wage job at McDonald’s (which fittingly happens to be located inside a WalMart).  Now the woman’s poor child is in the hands of the South Carolina state authorities [a state which STILL proudly flies the Confederate Flag at its Capitol building].The irony is that the justification employed by state officials is that the mother put the child at risk by leaving her in the park where some random strangers might have just come along and kidnapped her child. As it turns out, that is exactly what happened, but the kidnappers were the police! They came along and snatched this woman’s child and now she risks losing her daughter forever!
