I love Kalhan a lot. This has been a post.
My talk at the Carolina Secular Student Summit today has pictures of puppies. Get excited my friends.
friendly reminder that spirit animals are a sacred concept in a variety of religions worldwide (many of them being aboriginal religions that are at risk of destruction by european colonialism) and are not a way to joke about your admiration for something
this is the most beautiful and amazing thing i have ever read in my entire life and it makes me so so happy
Twilight may be trash but at least they cast actual native americans to play natives
That is a serious burn for a LOT of movies. I’m not sure we have enough burn cream for this.
Today I walked the four short blocks along one moderately busy street from my place of residence to a building on the campus of my college so I could hold office hours. In the 8 minutes it took me to walk I was catcalled by at least three men from their cars. Once with a whistle, once with two honks, and once with two honks and something shouted out the window.
I was mostly bummed out and annoyed by these actions as a result of being used to this kind of “attention”, though it is definitely something I detest.
I wish I could take a longer route that took me through campus instead of around it, but it would take me about 1.5 times as long and is assuredly a longer walking distance. This route is not one I can physically afford as I must distribute the energy and ability I have to be upright so that I can make it through every day.
The discourse on street harassment needs to remember its disabled and spoonie sisters who cannot always choose a “safer” route to avoid being harassed or move along quickly enough to avoid the extended stare and calls of a motorist passerby.
Please don’t leave us out of the conversations on temporary solutions from street harassment.
Also, I told my friend I was asexual and she said, “are you attracted to yourself?” and I am still laughing lol she thinks I’m a plant or something
