Thus began the rise of Aperture Science.

also i made everyone a delicious dinner and they liked it a lot and there was wine and we talked about harry potter and my whole soul is very soothed by this. 


  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $400,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

I laughed so hard at this.

We tell our women “get into science, get into math, get into the pipeline.” Who wants to be in a pipeline full of acid?

I’m at the car dealership, waiting for my service recall to be completed, and this statement caught the attention of every woman in the room. Unsurprisingly, they all nodded in assent while the few men in the room looked uncomfortable.

The point is valid: even if access to STEM and other male dominated fields is made available, we need to do something about the culture in the field. Access to a pipeline full of acid, while it is still access, serves to maintain inequality.

this is why i make it a point to openly welcome women in my science classes. there’s a lot of assholes, even in animal behavior and ecology (which is seen kind of as a semisoft science anyhow) and i’ve seen countless women and girls drop classes or fail out because they didn’t feel safe being there and it’s fucking terrible.

Even in political science! It’s supposed to be a social science but rarely were there that many other women in my classes. Those that stuck it out had to deal with the ‘acid’.

you’re safe as long as you don’t imagine your otp slow dancing to ‘the way you look tonight’ in their pjs in the kitchen of their new house at 3am with their heads resting on each other’s shoulders if you do imagine that then you’re ruined im sorry

#i dare you to look like this at your friend

Heterosexual staring.

that tag is something writers should see cuz we tried it with my friend and things got real awkward like her boyfriend came and said: “why don’t you look at me like that when i say ily”

I’m gonna try this with a friend and see how the tension escalates.

on my to do list

Funny story, I accidentally look at humans like that in general. Like…I pretty much look at everyone like I’m love with them or as if I am mentally undressing them. The people around me get used to it. xD

This reality is a bit harder to swallow: There are more white people in the US and Canada because the US and Canada were established using the systematic genocide of Native peoples, the theft of Native lands, and the labour of enslaved peoples in the past and immigrant peoples currently who were and are never meant to stay or survive.

And now you’re uncomfortable. Good.

When you accept and acknowledge that census figures reflect a long history of marginalization, it is preposterous to use these same figures as the benchmark to which you measure the inclusion of marginalized people.
