Social justice keeps odd hours. I might use this to vent, to share beauty, or to be a nerd, in all its glory. Be warned, be afraid, and be awed.
being told you’re appreciated is one of the simplest yet incredibly uplifting things you can ever hear
And I really need some positive vibes. I really do.
//For those unaware (or usually have no interest in mecha, which is quite alarming theres so many of you)
among various anime announcements, it has been revealed by 2019 that there will be a REAL, FUNCTIONAL, FULL SIZE, GUNDAM
NOT A MODEL KIT, NOT A TOY, A REAL REAL REAL HONEST TO GOD MECH

I have put myself into a box when it comes to books I want to read. This box is distinctly oriented for science-fiction and/or fantasy.
This box does not want to read about white people in Whitelandia doing white things with white people, with white males being interesting, and white males telling the story, and white women being there and being white and blond, and the white brunettes being evil, or waiting, or the white women acting like white men, and the sex scenes feeling like a bad white porno, except with hobbits.
No, the box I’m in is told from different perspectives, written by smart women and men, with brown skin and dark skin and non-white skin, and women who do not wait for their man, or even their women, who are barbarians and heathens, but don’t really try to fuck everything that moves.
This box has stories which don’t happen back when slavery never existed, even though for fuck’s sake it’s set in the Confederate fucking South, nor does it take place on an alien world where the white savior gets to be the white alien savior.
So you know this box is everything that is outside of the fucking box. So I ended up in a goddamn box. Happy Labor Day.
Whoa. The MLA has officially devised a standard format to cite tweets in an academic paper. Sign of the times.

I’m reflagging this again. Because this is ridiculously awesome, I feel empowered as a teacher, and very few motherfuckers are going to appreciate this at my school.
