The difference between nerds and geeks.

That’s it.  I found it.  The thing that finally made me actually understand the difference.

There it is. It has been said.

Día triste para mi patria. 109 empleados son lanzados a la calle por una porquería de patrono q jamás supo agradecer los años de servicio brindados a la empresa y su compromiso con PR.

Boricuas, o ustedes dejan de ser sumisos y tolerar atropello o se aprietan el cinturón y luchan x sacar a esta porquería de canal q quiere meterles basura x ojos, nariz y boca!

Here’s a test:

I’m holding a baby in one hand and a petri dish holding a fetus in the other.

I’m going to drop one. You chose which.

If you really truly believe a fetus is the same thing as a baby, it should be impossible for you to decide. You should have to flip a coin, that’s how impossible the decision should be.

Shot in the dark, you saved the baby.

Because you’re aware there’s a difference.

Now admit it

woah.

yeah but what if fred weasley became a hogwarts ghost

pulling pranks and flirting with seventh-years and telling an over-exaggerated version of his death to anyone who will listen, haunting slytherin first years and popping up in the boring classes and making faces at the teachers behind their backs

skip a few decades. george weasley dies.

fred’s ghost is never seen again in hogwarts

literally go fuck yourself why would you say that

guys are so terrifying like they will really date a girl as a joke or make bets in their friend groups on who can fuck a girl first or take her virginity and that’s so scary this is a joke to them

'I Think She Was A She' Proudly Proclaims There's No Shame In Having An Abortion

In the slam poem “I Think She Was A She,” spoken word poet and performance artist Leyla Josephine recounts the abortion she had as a teenager and the cultural shame she’s been constantly confronted with ever since.

Be brought to tears when you watch Leyla recite the full moving poem here. 

I love this.

This. This is how you break down ableist barriers. This is incredible for the deaf and for the custies. I would love to learn sign language, and I would learn it faster if it was standing between me and booze

this is so important

why the fuck would straight ally’s get scholarships meant for LGBTQ students

Here the thing, there are scholarships for many sorts of things: Being in a specific field, being a minority in a field (woman in science), being a woman, being a leader in an eco-friendly campaign, being black/hispanic/something, etc…all those can be proven if necessary.  If you say you’re in a field then a school would probably support it, if you’re a gender or not then it can also be supported (whether or not trans is an issue here is not my point but it could still be supported regardless), a race should be supported by a background check of your family or something.  Whether or not when applying for one of these scholarships they do require proof or not (in my experience they don’t but then again they also usually meet me and physical appearance and a conversation might tell them enough). doesn’t matter as long as that if doubt occurs it could be clarified.  You really cannot prove if you’re LGBTQ, you can claim it and people have to take your word because only you know yourself and what your preferences are.  Me, as a straight female, could go, claim to be bi or lesbian or anything and get the scholarship.  It’s sort of considered harassment and a violation if they require me to kiss another woman or something to prove my claim.  So instead of dealing with people deliberately lying to get the scholarship they just accept straight allys.  These is the type of scholarships that sound to me like they require an essay or something of your experience so an allay could talk about his experience giving support to his gay parents, or his trans best friend, or her experience attending and leading LGBTQ rallies or anything of the sort - in the end the person with the best essay would get it which you’d figure I’d go to the person that has the best story to tell.
tl;dr Anyone straight could lie and say they’re something else to get it the same easy way some lie about their heritage.

Call me a glutton for punishment, but I thoroughly enjoy the former!

I get where the cartoonist is coming from, but if we told everyone who was interested in science that it’s nothing but a slow grind of data until you die or retire (ha!), nobody would do it. It’s a bait and switch- you have to rope people in with the sexy parts of science, so that the countless hours of data collecting and paper reading don’t seem so onerous. 
But the truth is, any passion requires long hours of repetitious stuff that the lay person doesn’t get to see. Want to be a great writer? You have to write. A lot. And suck at it for a long time. The same goes for drawing or playing an instrument. Love history? Literature? Yeah, you’re going to be doing a lot of countless hours of reading dense and boring stuff. Are you an athlete? Welcome to hours and hours of training and intense physical punishment.
Why does anyone do anything like this to themselves? Maybe we are all gluttons for punishment. But a life lived without passion- passion for science, for art, for physical excellence, for helping others, whatever it is- a life without that wouldn’t be much of a life, really.
