If you ever date an asexual person be sure to get the specifics of their asexuality because the level of comfort with physical contact is different for all of us.

as an asexual person, i’m a little confused as to why you think this only applies to us. this applies to all people. no matter who you date, their level of comfort with physical contact will vary, and whether they’re ace or not it’s your job to establish a comfort zone

Liars make life difficult for honest people ugh

I’m not gonna cheat ever if you cheat off me I lose credit 

I turned in the paper but it’s nowhere to be found afterwards and I lose credit because there’s no proof I didn’t not turn it in just to get an extension

I went to the bathroom without a pass, I must be skipping class

Once in science class the teacher was talking about reproduction and how almost everything we do on routine is to attract a mate and this one boy was all “I don’t want a wife or a girlfriend” so everyone was all “omg r u gay” and he said “no i kinda dont really want anyone” and there was silence until he said “well actually i kinda want lizard” and long story short that kid came out as asexual in front of 30 8th graders

Being the child of an immigrant is a strange experience, because you can grow up completely immersed in their culture- eating their food, speaking their language, wearing their clothes- but you’ll never fully feel like a part of it because of where you were born and how you absorbed that culture. So you’re one  culture, but not really, because you’re also the other culture, but you’re a different version of that than everyone else who grew up in it.

feelknower1993:

the idea of harry potter not only straddling two worlds between him (the british wizarding world and the british muggle world) but also being met at each end by two entirely different systems of historical dehumanization/subjugation (with harry on one hand being a half-blood in a society built on blood pedigree and on the other hand being black mixed-race in a society built on white supremacy) is at once extremely tragic and extremely compelling narratively

it’s also interesting that either status has a completely negligible effect within the opposite world (i.e. harry’s blood status means nothing in muggle britain and his race means nothing in wizarding britain)

mixed-race harry continues to rise to the top as the most narratively compelling interpretation of the text

People always complain about how celebrities should be using their social power to do something good and the second someone steps up and does it (aka Emma Watson’s butt kicking HeForShe campaign speech) people start criticizing her because she’s famous and therefore should not be complaining

Are you kidding me lmao are you fucking kidding me

When you discuss the wage gap, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Only white women make $0.77 to a man’s dollar.
  • Black women make about $0.68 to a man’s dollar.
  • Latina women make about $0.58 to a man’s dollar.

Intersectionality matters.

"to a man’s dollar"

You mean to a white man’s dollar.
