So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?

this is some of the most blatant twisting of info i have ever seen holy shit


I had to teach my students about making graphs last week. One of the things I told them was that while I understand their graphing errors were accidental, there are going to be people out there doing this sort of stuff on purpose. They gave me a funny look. I’m probably going to show them this tomorrow (we live in FL).

My friend had stars and hearts sponge-painted on her walls back in the day, and it was only a couple of years ago that her parents finally got around to painting over it.

Breaking The Male Code: After Steubenville, A Call To Action

Sports Editor at The Nation, Dave Zirin

In general, I think we need to move away from the premise that being a good person is a fixed immutable characteristic and shift towards seeing being good as a practice. And it is a practice that we carry out by engaging with our imperfections. We need to shift towards thinking that being a good person is like being a clean person. Being a clean person is something you maintain and work on every day.We don’t assume ‘I am a clean person therefore I don’t need to brush my teeth.’ When someone suggests to us that we have something stuck in our teeth we don’t say to them ‘What do you mean I have something stuck in my teeth—but I’m a clean person?!’
