A mother’s worst nightmare.

She was preaching

this gave me chills

Black woman who lost her son just preached on systemic racism, antiblackness, Black ppls internalized self-hatred and white supremacy. 

But some of y’all missed it

That time when Raven actually said what most of us want to say to a teacher who picks you for the answer when you clearly don’t know it, for usually no other reason than to embarrass you and make you look stupid. One of the main things I hate and always will hate about school.

Chompsky and I went to the Word on the Street festival yesterday where we met a woman who told me a few things, including:

  1. Chompsky has the soul of a reincarnated Cary Grant
  2. She’s going to get a female dog one day, and she wants her to mate with Chompsky, but Chompsky has to be a virgin for her
  3. She was concerned that Chompsky might sleep on “too many blankets”’

Anyway check out that resemblance!!

Going out with a dog is a great way to meet new people

You don’t know humor until you’ve witnessed Taylor Swift sing the words, “I pray my dick get big as the Eiffel Tower, so I can fuck the world for seventy-two hours.”

Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, anyone? Recipe is taylorswift approved!


For all you non-beliebers out there, I mean come on taylorswift clearly pronounces “shee” especially when compared to previous performances. This is not overthinking it.

What Happened to the Computer Girls? 

Believe it or not, in the 1960’s, programming was seen as women’s work. It was even touted as being “just like planning a dinner”.

So what happened?

Eventually male programmers wanted to raise their status above “women’s work”. So they actively discouraged women from these positions, designed hiring tests rigged for men, and even created the stereotype that programmers are disinterested in people. No wonder in the years since, it’s still a male dominated field. Women earned only 18% of the computer science degrees awarded in 2008-2011. 

Alright ladies, we need to bust this myth. It’s been too long. Find organizations like Scientista or Sally Ride Science that help encourage women and girls in STEM interests. Find mentors and connect with other women interested in STEM. 

Computer Science departments in universities are some of the most racist, sexist, downright misogynist hell holes, with the worst kind of men. Everyone from male professors to male TAs are bullying arseholes who eschew the worst kind of “white male victim” complex. Not only do they treat female students like crap, they also pick on female professors in the department. Many male professors don’t help female students, and male TAs are creepy fucks who think they can flirt with you if you go to them for help, especially if you’re a non-white woman. 

Forever thankful that my high school comp sci teacher was SUPER supportive of the 3 girls taking comp sci and immediately shot down any dude who tried to give us shit. As an aside, us three girls got the highest marks in that class.

Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2) 

Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace

Just in case anyone thinks these are old posts still going round Tumblr: they’re not.
