yea getting girls to do STEM fields is important but u know what else is important? that we stop devaluing feminized work like elderly and child care, support work, social work, teaching, etc. pls stop acting like STEM fields are the final frontier for women

Hm. Well I think it’s about proportional response. I don’t think that women who choose to do feminized work run into institutional opposition. They are, if anything, constantly encouraged by our culture to pursue that work.

If we choose to give more encouragement to those girls who show interest or aptitude in fields where they are more likely to suffer from institutional opposition, then all we are doing is counteracting a poison that girls who decide to be nurses don’t have to deal with. And if women running day cares don’t feel valued, I’m genuinely very sorry to hear that, as they have the full weight of cultural approval backing them. Supporting girls in STEM fields does not devalue the other. The other is simply already well-supported. 

Positioning it as a conflict between one ambition versus another, or acting as though women who do traditionally feminized work are not feminists, for example, is pitting women against women, and I am deeply opposed to that.

Favorite video ever.

this is my favorite thing I’ve ever seen

You know, I’m pretty jaded at this point by cat videos. I mean, what’s left that hasn’t been covered? 

But this.

Canada’s Aboriginal Women

The thing about the abduction and murder of Canada’s aboriginal women is that, you know, sure, it’s 1,200 over the last 30 years, but once I did the math… that averages out to more than 3 women every month. For the last 30 years? And no one in a position to address this is concerned?

And while I don’t know the statistics — hell, that might even be peanuts compared to other populations — that still really slams home.

I’m so sorry, Canada. That is horrible.

(You guys are supposed to be the good guys. That is YOUR JOB.)

Malcolm X: Our History Was Destroyed By Slavery 

on March 17, 1963 in Chicago.

see how little we get taught about history - I never had any idea why Malcolm X used the ‘X’. 

How come I didn’t know this

Also that crusty old white man called the named ‘gifted’. Jesus.

If you’re unemployed, it’s not because there isn’t any work.
Just look around: A housing shortage, crime, pollution; we need better schools and parks. Whatever our needs, they all require work. And as long as we have unsatisfied needs, there’s work to be done.
So ask yourself, what kind of world has work but no jobs? It’s a world where work is not related to satisfying our needs, a world where work is only related to satisfying the profit needs of business.
This country was not built by the huge corporations or government bureaucracies. It was built by people who work. And, it is working people who should control the work to be done. Yet, as long as employment is tied to somebody else’s profits, the work won’t get done.

Was expecting classist bullshit, got the exact opposite

This is so ubelievably important and I hate that I have to keep re-explaining it to people.

I was ready to be mad and then I was not hah

I would note that we do not have a housing shortage in this country. We have a housing surplus.
And hundreds of homeless people.
We could house every single homeless person tomorrow…if we were willing to set aside the idea that if you are not working for money you need to be motivated to find a job by basic survival.
So. How do we fix it?

Socialism.
