When people change their avatars they don’t understand how much of an effect that has on how I see your posts and your interactions with me. You are your profile picture, I mean Tumblr is even designed to make it look look like all the posts are speech bubbles coming from your avatar.

Therefore, you! Yes, you! You are definitely Richard Armitage.

And you there, you’re Batman.

And that person over there is a pair of talking boobs. For some reason. Look, I don’t make the rules.

I reblogged this from a pair of old boots.

SOMEONE IS MAKING WAFFLES I WANT TO KNOW WHO IS MAKING WAFFLES BECAUSE IT SMELLS LIKE WAFFLES AND I WANT WAFFLES

MY MOTHER IS MAKING WAFFLES

THEY TASTE LIKE WAFFLES THAT FELL FROM HEAVEN

I bought eggs and milk last night.  ONLY because I have bisquick in the fridge, and I want… either pancakes or waffles.  I have to go out in a few, I might have to go buy some blueberries….

I have frozen raspberries, strawberries, and mangoes in the freezer… but I think I need fresh blueberries…

Update: I got blueberries.  Had to get a biggish $5 thing of them.  Leftovers can be for smoothies.  Later… I’m gonna do dishes, and cook up some fluffy fruity pancakes.  If I had whipped cream, I’d do waffles with fruit topping.  But I didn’t, so it’s pancakes.

Teachers are often unaware of the gender distribution of talk in their classrooms. They usually consider that they give equal amounts of attention to girls and boys, and it is only when they make a tape recording that they realize that boys are dominating the interactions.

Dale Spender, an Australian feminist who has been a strong advocate of female rights in this area, noted that teachers who tried to restore the balance by deliberately ‘favouring’ the girls were astounded to find that despite their efforts they continued to devote more time to the boys in their classrooms. Another study reported that a male science teacher who managed to create an atmosphere in which girls and boys contributed more equally to discussion felt that he was devoting 90 per cent of his attention to the girls. And so did his male pupils. They complained vociferously that the girls were getting too much talking time.

In other public contexts, too, such as seminars and debates, when women and men are deliberately given an equal amount of the highly valued talking time, there is often a perception that they are getting more than their fair share. Dale Spender explains this as follows:

The talkativeness of women has been gauged in comparison not with men but with silence. Women have not been judged on the grounds of whether they talk more than men, but of whether they talk more than silent women.

In other words, if women talk at all, this may be perceived as ‘too much’ by men who expect them to provide a silent, decorative background in many social contexts. This may sound outrageous, but think about how you react when precocious children dominate the talk at an adult party. As women begin to make inroads into formerly ‘male’ domains such as business and professional contexts, we should not be surprised to find that their contributions are not always perceived positively or even accurately.

IMPORTANT FOR EDUCATORS TO TAKE IMMEDIATE AND CONSANT NOTE!

White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”

I will never understand why.

Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.

Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.

Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.

If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear.

i finally put some thoughts into words // thedeathcats (via taint3ed)

this is wrong.

Racism does not exclude.  Just because one race gets mainstrem acceptance doesn’t mean they can’t experience it.

Personally, BECAUSE I’ve seen it and experienced it - AS A PLAIN OLD BORING WHITE GIRL - I can relate better to those who experience on a deeper, more pervasive level.

Did I like getting treated differently by the first black people I had an y real interaction with? I was from a small town.  The one black girl wasn’t really black - she was from India, VERY VERY dark, and adopted by a white family.  She was also a few years older than me, so I never actually talked to her.  When I moved here, where there are LOTS of different races, I was treated pretty unpleasantly by a bunch of black guys at my school.  Taunted and catcalled and other stuff, because I had to walk past where they hung out in the halls to get to my locker - which I learned to live without so I wouldn’t have to walk by them anymore.   Or the best friend I lost because she was Irish and when she found a big group of Irish people living here locally, they sucked her in, and excluded me and were mean and rude to me because I wasn’t from Ireland.

Racism is everywhere, and it’s not always about the color of your skin.  It’s not always people getting killed.  I’ve met some REALLY racist white people, and some SUPER racist black people.

Just because you’re the mainstream accepted race does NOT mean you never experience racism.  It just means someone is gonne bitch you out and yell and throw a fit if you dare to mention it or complain about it.

You damn fucking well CAN be racist toward white people.  White people just aren’t allowed to complain about it.

white people: mike brown robbed that store!

Lawyer: no he didn’t

Store owners: nope

Eye witnesses: nah

white people:

white people: MIKE BROWN ROBBED THAT STORE

people who are paying attention: hey hey did you know that robbing a store is not actually grounds for an extrajudicial execution anyway

Which white people are these, anyway? Just curious, cuz I’m white, and so are a LOT of people I know… and none of them are saying that..
