writing an essay about intersection of Vichy notions of family/motherhood (the ideal women being “in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant”) and the gendered role of Resistance in France in WWII and either i

im a genius and no one has thought of this before (negative) or

this is annoyingly overlooked in favour of Guns-and-Politics-are-not-for-women Resistance narratives (positive)

which is annoying on, you know, a human level but also on a student level because sources are not exactly falling into my lap

[also, interestingly but not surprisingly, the vast majority of the sources i have found are penned by women]

[also also, must note that in the past decade or so, in academia the term resistance has expanded to include actions like courier work or organizing and whatnot, which are tasks traditionally performed by women. so progress. but let’s get moving shall we?]


Yo its’ okay if you’re a white girl who likes Uggs and spray tans and pop music and instagramming your Starbucks. Don’t let tumblr make you think for one minute that liking things like that makes you inferior.

Same goes for if you’re a hipster trans mexican/japanese Pizza Underground enthusiast with a hello kitty neck tattoo.

If you’re not hurting anyone, you be you. There’s nothing wrong with that.

One of the things that a LOT of progressives have a problem with is classism. “DON’T SHOP AT WALMART! Buy local and organic!” etc. and they totally fail at realizing some people can’t afford other options, if they have options at all. Our struggles are different. Do what you can when you can. Raise awareness. But stop assuming everyone has the same opportunities and abilities.

do you ever think about doing something slightly anxiety-provoking and have like a startlingly violent physical reaction

like holy shit body don’t be melodramatic

you’re fine


It had taken me years to prevent an almost literal knee-jerk reaction (but mostly twitching) to anxiety inducing situations.

Bodies are weird.

"When I was fourteen I got very disenchanted with Nerdfighteria as a whole because I saw how everyone reacted to Mark Lambardo. Now to me, as a fourteen year old abuse survivor who was just getting the hang of her panic attacks and night terrors, the response seemed apathetic, lazy, embarrassed…and ask yourself if you happen to be a top tier Youtuber and you’re watching this, what did you do in 2012? Did you try and reach out to Lambardo’s victims? Did you stop people from publicly shaming them for what a grown man did? Did you think about rape culture and how it affects the way that these events play out? Did you look closely at communities in your real life? Did you start mentoring teenage girls in some facility online or offline? Because chances are, you made a couple of posts about it on your Tumblr. You may have complained about how invasive and annoying all these questions that people are asking you are as if getting anon questions on Tumblr are at the same level as statutory rape. Maybe you reblogged an article about Lambardo’s arrest. Maybe you even went so far as to erase all of his music from your iTunes account. But if the adults had dealt with this kind of behavior in 2012, we wouldn’t be dealing with it in 2014. Make it known this is not how you treat your fans, your peers, this is not how you treat women, this is not how you treat girls, this is not how you treat humans."

Vegetarian. No mushrooms. Struggles ensue,

People in their early twenties still refer to people older than them as “adults”. When do you think they stop… and realize… they are adults

I’m not an adult, I’m a child with a drinking permit.

I’ve convinced my 10 year old cousin that you’re not an adult until you’re 25. I’ve got 2 and a half years left of my youth.
