  3. Horror stories about Muslim misogyny have long been used by western patriarchs to justify imperialism abroad and sexism at home. The Guardian’s Katharine Viner reminds us about Lord Cromer, the British consul general in Egypt from 1883. Cromer believed the Egyptians were morally and culturally inferior in their treatment of women and that they should be “persuaded or forced” to become “civilised” by disposing of the veil.

    "And what did this forward-thinking, feminist-sounding veil-burner do when he got home to Britain?" asks Viner. "He founded and presided over the Men’s League for Opposing Women’s Suffrage, which tried, by any means possible, to stop women getting the vote. Colonial patriarchs like Cromer … wanted merely to replace eastern misogyny with western misogyny." More than a century later, the same logic is used to imply that misogyny only matters when it isn’t being done by white men.

    TransCuba: Photographer Mariette Pathy Allen Explores a Hidden Havana Subculture

    For more than 30 years, New York based photographer and painter Mariette Pathy Allenhas been documenting transgender culture worldwide; in 2004 she won the Lambda Literary Award for her monograph The Gender Frontier. In her new publication, TransCuba, Allen focuses on the transgender community of Cuba, especially its growing visibility and acceptance in a country whose government is transitioning into a more relaxed model of communism under Raúl Castro’s presidency.
     
    An excerpt from Mariela Castro Espin, who is the director of the Cuban National Center for Sex Education in Havana, is included in the book: “We dedicate this day to families because we want families to be conscious of their great social responsibility, so that all of our families, all of the people with the great social responsibility of being a parent, realize that their can’t be any form of discrimination in the family, discrimination based in the prejudice that we’ve inherited from dominant societies.”

    Notice only 20 shades of gray

    It’s been proven that women actually have an acute ability to pick up subtle differences in colors

    In response to that last comment^^

    Yes. It comes from the Hunter-Gatherer days.

    Women were the gatherers. They had to be able to discern between the different shades of colors to know which plants were poisonous and which were not.

    Men were out hunting, so they didn’t have to worry about that.

    Which is why women see “Blood orange” and “crimson” and “scarlet” etc while guys just see “red”.

    I’M A COLORBLIND WOMAN HALF OF THESE LOOK THE SAME AS THE ONE NEXT TO THEM THIS IS INFURIATING 

    The hunter-gatherer explanation is total bullshit FYI. You think gatherers (women or not) relied on close color differentiation over the shape of the leaves/flowers/etc.? You think hunters (men or not) didn’t rely on close color differentiation to spot camouflaged prey?

    It’s not even that men aren’t always able to tell that two similar colors are different in shade or hue. It’s just that men, unlike women, generally aren’t exposed to thousands of beauty products every year/month/week, each with a UNIQUE color name.

    How many times have you seen a man ridiculed for wearing colors or shades that don’t match well enough? How many men have had to stand in an aisle at Walmart and make a conscious choice between orchid and amethyst? 

    If you think for a second that women being able to differentiate and assign names to varying hues is due to some pseudoscientific ancient human adaptation bullshit and not due to the fact that women have to survive being bogged down daily and from childhood by ridiculous beauty standards and expectations and products, then I will personally papercut your shins until you can tell me whether your sexist blood is crimson, scarlet, or ruby.

    where is this from and why is this assuming that women who are claiming their sexuality are even interested in the male gaze at all?

    slut-shaming isn’t part of my third-wave feminism.

  8. "College as explained to me in high school" vs. "College as experienced firsthand"

    • In high school they told us: There will be no grades in a class except the midterm and the final, so you have to study hard because failing one test means you fail the class.
    • Once I was in college a professor said: Hey, you guys are working really hard on your third paper, so I'm just going to cancel the final and give everyone a hundred on it.
    • In high school they told us: In college, class always begins exactly at the scheduled start time. If your class is at 9 AM and you get there at 9:01, the doors will be locked and you'll be out of luck, especially if it's the day of the midterm or final, because then you get a zero.
    • Once I was in college a professor said: Does anyone mind if I start class at 3:35 instead of 3:30? These elevators are really slow and I want to have time for a cigarette before I teach for 90 minutes.
    • In high school they told us: Every class you miss drops you a full letter grade in college courses.
    • Once I was in college almost every professor said: You can miss three classes without a penalty, and a few more if you have a Doctor's note. Sorry to be a hardass, but you automatically fail if you miss more than ten days of class.
    • In high school they told us: If you do have papers, your professors just lecture and put the assignments on the syllabus. You're completely responsible for remembering the deadlines, they won't remind you. All your professors will do is lecture and the rest is up to you.
    • Once I was in college a professor said: Okay, so your next paper is in two weeks! I'll keep reminding you in the interim, but I just want to make sure you have enough time to do it! Let's run through the structure I want to see real quick, and if you have any questions, feel free to email me or come to my office hours!
    • In high school they told us: You have to use MLA formatting and if you make any mistakes in your citations, it'll be considered plagiarism. You'll be expelled and probably sued.
    • Once I was in college almost every professor said: Please do not use MLA, it is awful, we use either APA or Chicago here because we are not 14 years old.

    • So a few months ago I started wearing glasses, and then this started happening...
    • Me: [tries to focus on something, can't quite see.]
    • Me: [takes off my glasses so I can get a better look.]
    • Me: "Wait, that's worse."
    • Me: [puts my glasses back on to see again.]
    • Every time. Every time.
