I like: HIMYM (until they wrecked the finale), The Sims 3, Taylor Swift, Libraries, among other things (like Buffy, food, feminism, various other things that I haven't tagged). Your best bet would be to read my tumbls if you want to get to know me. Layouts are always by me. Brushes by Obsidian Dawn.
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.
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
