2. In science class, talking about certain properties of substances and what a "Property" is. My science teacher asks me to stand up and ask the class for some of my properties. (FYI I am female and fully identify as such, but this was still a cool thing to say on my teacher's behalf)

    1. first kid: red hair!
    2. teacher: (immediately nods and writes "red hair" on board) yup, that is one of alex's properties, sure.
    3. another kid: brown eyes!
    4. teacher: (nods and writes on board)
    5. yet another kid: freckles
    6. teacher: all great answers, (writes on board) anything else?
    7. Lets call him Bob: Shes a girl
    8. Teacher: (Pauses, looks at me, then back at the kid) Well it's not my place to confirm that, besides, you have no idea whether Alex is a girl or not.
    9. Bob: Well she's got boobs
    10. Teacher: (Doesnt even get mad at the smartassish response, just nods calmly) Yes, now, having boobs is a property. Gender on the other hand is much less physical, and a lot more mental. Just because she has body parts that are recognized generally on females, does not mean that she's female herself. So why don't we say, instead of "she's a girl" we'll just say she has boobs
    11. Teacher: (writes on board "Alex has boobs")

  7. White feminists:



    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.

    I will keep reblogging this to point out that disabled people, including men, make 22 cents on the dollar. Mostly because it is legal to pay us below minimum wage, but whatevs.

    Jim Dingilian proves that a creative and skillful artist can create works of art with just about anything. By coating the interior of empty glass bottles with black smoke and then carefully brushing it away with tools mounted on dowels, he creates detailed and beautiful but dark works of smoke art that are dripping with a sense of suburban decay (via Bored Panda).

    are you shitting me
