A love for everything and nothing in particular

well this week has been….. special 


A college degree is a near-requirement for students to build a life in the middle class, but whether or not students graduate often depends on their family income when they start school.

Here’s what happened to 100 students from four different income groups who began college in 2002.

The School Board has a responsibility to oppose the systematic racism toward Indigenous people in the United States, which perpetuates high rates of poverty and income inequality, exacerbating disproportionate health, education and social crises.

It’s appalling to me that the majority of Americans didn’t approve of interracial marriage until 1995. We need to recognize that America has been, and continues to be, a *profoundly* racist country.

Also interesting that the government was way out ahead of public opinion on interracial marriage and significantly behind on same-sex marriage. The government is supposed to protect the rights of its citizens whether or not the majority wants those rights protected. That’s not how we’re behaving these days.

Dear girls,

Not every fucking man is hitting on you. Not every guy at the gym wants to be with you.

I am a homosexual and I’m gettin my squats on and I’m staring at you because you have terrible form and even worse highlights

Dear “I’m a homosexual and I’m gettin my squats on”

I’m happy that you’re exercising in a way that fulfills you, and that your form is perfect and your highlights are better than this person’s. 

I am not this woman at the gym, I hate gyms and exercise outside, but there are some points of non-cisgendered male existence you could use a reminder of.

I know that not every guy is hitting on me, and I know that a great many aren’t, and I know the world doesn’t revolve around me, but I also know what it feels like to be objectified, leered at, hit on on wontedly, and catcalled as does every woman at a rate of higher frequency than men, so forgive that woman for having enough experience to be uncomfortable at your starring because she doesn’t want to be that special either.

She just wants to sweat and look gross, and release some endorphins 

p.s. squats mean more leg muscles for ass kicking
