    yeah seriously tell us how wizardry’s done in the new world tell me how the wizards from france and spain and britain stamped out the brujos and the medicine men and set up their own schools tell me what the fuck the british raj did to fucking india because the patel twins are going to school in scotland and what are they told about their history, tell me about native american kids learning to say wingardium leviosa with hate in their hearts and tell me about wizarding rabbis bickering about whether you can use potions on the sabbath tell me about the slaves on their ships with their wands broken, mouthing curses in the dark tell me about the runaways that made it with garter snakes wrapped around their wrists that told them when they tasted dogs in the distance, tell me about the underground railroad and abolitionists with unbreakable vows and home-spun invisibility cloaks and disilusionments, using obliviate, using imperio, knowing that they served a higher justice, tell me about what happened to black wizards in the fifties, about what gates they were storming in the sixties tell me about queer wizards taking love potions every morning in their coffee to stay married to their husbands and their wives because what else could they do?

    the world only begins and ends with straight white christians if you don’t bother looking any farther than that and too many people don’t and i am tired, tired, tired

    The hallmark feature of ADHD has always been the inconsistency. Inconsistent engagement, inconsistent performance, inconsistent moods, etc. Activities that were done beautifully yesterday are terribly done today. Usually this is presented in a very judgmental way that the person with ADHD is ‘flighty, unreliable, unpredictable, or intentionally not trying.’

  4. brain-food:

    I stumbled across these 3 shows on Netflix this year and absolutely fell in love with them. I was pleasantly surprised.


    Bomb Girls is a Canadian television drama that debuted on January 4, 2012 on Global. The plot profiles the stories of four women working in a Canadian munitions factory during World War II, beginning in 1941


    The Bletchley Circle is a 2012 television mystery drama miniseries, set in 1952.  It focuses on Four ordinary women with an extraordinary flair for code-breaking and razor-sharp intelligence skills. Having served as code breakers in World War II, the four now focus their talents on catching killers.


    set in the 1950s, this period drama based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth follows new midwife Jenny Lee and the other midwives and nuns working in a nursing convent in an impoverished section of London’s East End.

    Earlier today, I served as the “young woman’s voice” in a panel of local experts at a Girl Scouts speaking event. One question for the panel was something to the effect of, "Should parents read their daughter’s texts or monitor her online activity for bad language and inappropriate content?"


    Apparently people are rediscovering this post somehow and I think that’s pretty cool! Having experienced similar violations of trust in my youth, this is an important issue to me, so I want to add my personal story:

    Around age 13, I tried to express to my mother that I thought I might have clinical depression, and she snapped at me “not to joke about things like that.” I stopped telling my mother when I felt depressed.

    Around age 15, I caught my mother reading my diary. She confessed that any time she saw me write in my diary, she would sneak into my room and read it, because I only wrote when I was upset. I stopped keeping a diary.

    Around age 18, I had an emotional breakdown while on vacation because I didn’t want to go to college. I ended up seeing a therapist for - surprise surprise - depression.

    Around age 21, I spoke on this panel with my mother in the audience, and afterwards I mentioned the diary incident to her with respect to this particular Q&A. Her eyes welled up, and she said, “You know I read those because I was worried you were depressed and going to hurt yourself, right?”

    TL;DR: When you invade your child’s privacy, you communicate three things:

    1. You do not respect their rights as an individual.
    2. You do not trust them to navigate problems or seek help on their own.
    3. You probably haven’t been listening to them.

    Information about almost every issue that you think you have to snoop for can probably be obtained by communicating with and listening to your child.

    Forever wondering if I am contributing to a conversation by using my own experiences or being self centered and rude.

    Thank god for this post.

    How Every "My Cat From Hell" episode works:

    1. People: My cat doesn't know how to cat.
    2. Jackson Galaxy: No, YOU don't know how to cat.
    3. People: if cat doesn't cat, cat has to go.
    4. Jackson Galaxy: Do the thing and your cat will cat.
    5. People: *doesn't do the thing*
    6. People: Cat still won't cat
    7. Jackson Galaxy: DO THE THING
    8. People: *does the thing*
    9. People: My cat is catting!
    10. Jackson Galaxy: dumbasses.

    People talk about how hard long distance relationships are but nobody talks about the struggle of long distance friendships. I would give my left leg right now to just be able to sit in our pjs and watch movies or to just be able to give a big fucking hug.
