This is the place to find out what is happening in my life, the silly things I hear from friends/family, and a place to find and share amusing stories/photos/videos to make the day better.

Our video about a science rapping competition just won a "Salute To Excellence" award from the National Assocation of Black Journalists!

It is an honor to win, and it was an honor to meet all the incredibly talented young rappers. I still have their songs stuck in my head. Check out their sweet science rhymes here:

What if women had minstrel cycles instead of menstrual cycles? You’d just have a guy with a lute follow you around for a week every month and play you songs constantly?

-My boyfriend (via thecarrionlibrarian)

Dear god, that would be EVEN WORSE.

Young men need to be socialized in such a way that rape is as unthinkable to them as cannibalism.

“I invented nothing new.  I simply assembled the discoveries of other men behind whom were centuries of work.  Had I worked fifty or ten or even five years before, I would have failed.
So it is with every new thing.   Progress happens when all the factors that make for it are ready, and then it is inevitable.
To teach that a comparatively few men are responsible for the greatest forward steps of mankind is the worst sort of nonsense”
-Henry Ford

White privilege is being able to shoot up a movie theater and leave alive in the back of a cop car. It’s driving around in the BMW daddy bought you killing because you felt you were entitled to women’s bodies & afterwards the media painting you as not a criminal but rather a poor sad situation of a person suffering from mental health issues.

But if you are a PoC you’re one trip to the corner store and a warning shot to the back of the head away from being a hash tag on tumblr.
