"Why is it people always get so upset about Affirmative Action but not about legacies? For some reason we’re ok with the historically advantaged having a leg-up over the rest of us, but not the historically disenfranchised."

— One of the best comment about Affirmative Action I’ve seen (found in response to this article)

bi-privilege:

bisexuals are greedy. they often hoard gold, although some branch out into jewels and magical items. despite popular belief, most bisexuals do not hoard significant others, as they tend to complain about being kept in a pile and slept on. their diet consists mostly of deer and some herd animals, although this varies by location. occasionally they will eat a biphobe who has wandered into their lair. also, they breathe fire. bisexuals are dragons.

Though vegan bisexuals mostly eat grass and chocolate, they will occasionally also eat a biphobe who has wandered into their lair. Because biphobes are vegetables. As an added perk, the fire on their breath is in bi colors.

SRSLY don’t fuck with bisexual vegans. You learn the hard way.

can we talk about how this fucking pbs show aimed at little kids easily talked about how anxiety is stressful but normal

Ok no but can we talk about this entire episode? 

It was called April 9th, and it was actually a response to the 9/11 attacks. It didn’t talk about the attacks themselves, but rather focused on teaching kids to deal with the all of the emotions that they might be feeling as a result. They set up a situation that might evoke similar emotions in children: a massive fire at the school.

Arthur’s dad was in the fire, so (as you can see above), Arthur is constantly worried about his dad’s safety.

Sue Ellen is grieving because her journal, which contained a huge amount of precious memories, was destroyed in the fire. Muffy is confused why she can’t just cheer Sue Ellen up by giving her a new journal.

Buster wasn’t at school that day, and feels confused and guilty that he isn’t sad about the fire like the other kids. He then befriends the school janitor, who has to retire due to an injury that, at his age, is pretty serious.

Binky actually saw the flames, and is constantly traumatized by the event. He doesn’t tell anyone because he feels like he would lose his tough-guy reputation if he admitted that he was scared.

The episode teaches kids that all of these emotions are perfectly normal and natural, that there’s not one right way to feel, and that even if it takes a while, things are going to be okay.

The thing that makes this show so great, in my opinion, is that it knows that kids are intellegent and strong enough to deal with these things if you present them in the right way. It doesn’t hide them, it doesn’t sugar coat them, it just presents them in a way that children can understand and shows them how to deal with them.

thisiswhiteprivilege:

White privilege is being the #1 consumers of welfare, food stamps, general government aid, and illegal drugs, but STILL blaming POC for all of those things as well as incarcerating them at an exponentially higher rate.

"Can a man still be brave if he’s afraid?” He heard his voice saying, small and far away.
And his father’s voice replied to him. “That is the only time a man can be brave."

IANAD but I’d worry more about taking alcohol with anything that makes you sleepy - mixing depressants does bad things to your breathing. It’s more likely to kill you immediately than just alcohol + Tylenol.

Hm, I’ve never heard that before. To be fair, the bottle just says that it shouldn’t be taken if you drink 3+ alcoholic drinks every day as part of the liver warning. Seems like it should have another warning if that’s a big issue. :/

Now I kind of regret drinking that sangria because I feel like I shouldn’t consume alcohol and Tylenol in the same night, and I may need Nyquil to sleep.
